School district refuses to let transgender student use locker room, defying federal officials

A suburban Chicago school district has announced that it will not allow transgender students to use locker rooms for changing and showering, defying federal civil rights officials.

Daniel E. Cates, the superintendent of Township High School District 211 in Palatine, Ill., said that the district is sensitive to the challenges that transgender students face and has a support team to help them navigate at school. Transgender students are allowed to use restrooms in accordance with their gender identity, because there are private stalls, he said.

    Has anyone else noticed that for the next month Mattel the toy company will give a dollar from each sale to the Lady Gaga ‘Born this way’ campaign?

      Is this something to do with “Drag Queen Barbie”?

        Not sure, one of the kids reads the newsletter about her dolls and there was a note about a born this way campaign and money going to help kids express their transgenderism. So I looked on line and the campaign seems to be tied to a group run by gaga….

    Keep gender out of it and label the rooms “dick” and “no dick”

      I prefer to label them XX and XY. That way no one can argue.

    This is a fuc$&g joke! Wtf is going on? I don’t give a shit if you have an identity crisis. That’s what the therapist and counsellors are for. You were either born with xx or xy. You either have a penis or vagina. There’s no question about anything. Society has to stop accepting and fueling this kind of sickness.
