Several controversies regarding whether boys should be able to use girls bathrooms and locker rooms and vice versa have recently taken center stage, including in Maine, where its state supreme court is set to decide the fate of Nicole Maines, a 15-year-old male who identifies as female.
Maines sued the school over its decision to have her use the staff bathroom instead of the girls one, and a decision is expected soon.
A similar case is unfolding in Colorado, where the parents of 6-year-old Coy Mathis, a boy who identifies as a female, have sued the school district for asking the first-grader to use a separate bathroom.
And a bill successfully winding its way through the California legislature would mandate all public schools in the state allow transgender students access to opposite-sex bathrooms and locker rooms based on their gender identity and not their biological sex.
The problem is, it’s already happening, and it’s already causing trouble.
As The College Fix reported last week, Granada Hills Charter High School in Los Angeles has for quite some time allowed a boy who identifies as female to use the girls’ locker rooms and bathrooms, making the girls uncomfortable by touching their hair and watching them get undressed. Three girls have claimed that he has peered over bathroom stalls while they were inside. One girl has said his presence makes her feel uncomfortable and vulnerable...Sorry, honey. Since you're not transgendered, the favored victim group du jour, you'll just have to put up with it. And any grousing on your part will get you labeled a beeyotch and a transphobe.
