Teachers unions back bill allowing adult males to shower with young girls in Massachusetts
BOSTON, March 14, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – A bill that would allow adult biological males to shower or change alongside young girls has earned the endorsement of two prominent teachers unions in Massachusetts.
State legislators are considering a bill that would specifically open all public restrooms, shower facilities, and locker rooms to transgender people.
“An Act Relative to Gender Identity and Non-Discrimination” (H.B. 1577) would add “gender identity” to the state’s protected classes able to access all public facilities, such as private changing areas. Lawmakers specifically exempted “lawfully sex-segregated facilities” when it passed a 2011 ordinance granting transgender people protected legal status, but included school restroom facilities.
