Via Maggie Gallagher of the National Organization for Marriage comes word that the trans insanity has spread to deep-red Kentucky:
A transgender teenager, who was born male but identifies as a female, can continue to use a women’s restroom and locker room at a Jefferson County Public School.
In a 5-to-1 vote, an appeal board upheld Atherton High School’s nondiscrimination policy Thursday, which states the school must accept the gender identity each student asserts and shouldn’t discriminate on the use of school space on the basis of gender identity nor gender expression.
The current JCPS policy allows individual schools to set their own policies on the use of facilities.
The appeals board is composed of three teachers appointed by the president of the Jefferson County Teachers Association, two parents appointed by the 15th District PTA and a school administrator appointed by the president of the Jefferson County Association of School Administrators.
Attorney Clint Elliott argued allowing transgender students to use the restroom of their choice violates other students’ right to privacy.
“So students get to choose the restroom or locker room they use without any apparent monitor or control measures in place under the policy and no control to assure safety or privacy,” Elliott said.
Atherton’s principal defended the school’s site-based decision making council’s resolution to add gender identity to its non-discrimination policy.
“Is the question really about privacy or is it about comfort? Just because someone does not feel comfortable, doesn’t mean their rights are being violated. Our policy recognizes gender identity as a real issue that deserves accommodation within a school system,” Atherton Principal Dr. Tom Aberli said.
There’s an easy answer to this question, Dr. Tom.
It’s about privacy, you moron!!!
Ask yourself this, Dr. Tom: if your 14-year-old daughter came home and told you that there was a 17-year-old boy who had a gym class at the same she did, and who was telling everyone he believed he was actually a female, and was insisting that he be able to take a shower at the same time as your daughter, would that be fine and dandy with you?
Here’s another question for you, Dr. Tom: If it’s all about being “uncomfortable,” and such concerns are really beneath your notice, why not have all the boys and all the girls shower together? As long as there’s no touching, what could it hurt? It might make some of them “uncomfortable,” but what difference does that make?
And yet another question, Dr. Tom: given the apparently infinite malleability of human sexuality, and the willingness of public school administrators to accommodate those of every possible permutation, what are you going to do with a high school junior who comes to you and says, “I was born in the wrong body, I identify as a female, and I’m also a lesbian”? Yeah, I know, that’s a joke a lot of people have made, but I mean it in all seriousness, Dr. Tom. Are you going to dispute that young man’s claims? Accommodate him? Turn him away? On what grounds?
Oh, and before I go, one more question, Dr. Tom: why do hate females? I mean, you seem to have no concern over exposing them to naked teenagers on a daily basis, whether they want to be so exposed or not. As we all know, there’s a “war on women” going on in this country, and you appear to be doing your part to traumatize teenage girls. A fair-minded person has to ask, “are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the Republican Party?”
Most important word for every sane parent to remember: HOMESCHOOLING.
