High school required to let boys use girls’ locker room

Boys in the girls' locker roomOn Monday, the federal government mandated that a Chicago high school allow a full biological male into the girls’ locker room for all purposes, including nudity, because the boy “identifies” as a girl. Under the ruling, the feds determined that the person with a penis and testicles must be permitted in the girls’ locker room under a previously non-existent provision in Title IX of the Civil Rights Act.

Since its inception, Title IX was believed to be a provision used to battle sexism, but it turns out that it was really intended to force underage girls to look at the sex organs of mentally ill boys.

The ruling followed a two-year investigation of Township High School District 211 after the transgendered student filed a complaint with the feds in 2013 when the school refused to allow him “unrestricted access” to the girls’ locker room. The district eventually compromised, allowing the boy into the girls’ locker room if he used a privacy curtain while disrobing.

In the end, even that ridiculous concession wouldn’t be enough. The feds determined that the student was still being discriminated against because, as John Knight, director of the LGBT and AIDS Project at the American Civil Liberties Union stated, the school’s compromise still constituted “blatant discrimination.” Referring to the boy as a female, he explained:

“It’s not voluntary; its mandatory for her. It’s one thing to say to all the girls, ‘You can choose if you want some extra privacy,’ but it’s another thing to say, ‘You, and you alone, must use them.’ That sends a pretty strong signal to her that she’s not accepted and the district does not see her as a girl.”

Well, perhaps the reason the district doesn’t see her as a girl is because she isn’t. Still, the Office for Civil Rights agreed with the ACLU, with Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon saying:

“All students deserve the opportunity to participate equally in school programs and activities — this is a basic civil right. Unfortunately, Township High School District 211 is not following the law because the district continues to deny a female student the right to use the girls’ locker room.”

So, as Ben Shapiro concluded on Brietbart.com, here is the Obama Administration’s policy regarding sex and sexuality for our kids:

  • If you’re a boy who shows a picture of your penis to a girl in your class, you have likely violated both federal child pornography laws as well as local sexual harassment laws. If this happens consistently in your school, the school has violated Title IX.
  • If you’re a boy who says he’s a girl, the girls must be placed in position to see your penis and testicles. If the school does not allow this, the school has violated Title IX.
  • If you’re an adult who sexually touches a child with the consent of the child, you have committed a crime, since children are incapable of (giving) consent.
  • If you’re an adult who gives a child hormone therapy or surgery to prevent normal development of the genitals, with the consent of the child, you are a hero (because apparently a child is capable of giving consent when it’s politically correct).

America has lost her footing because the left has successfully eliminated God and replaced Him with a system of moral relativity. And without the compass of right and wrong, this is what results.

God help us!
