Who do you think knows more about what is best for your innocent baby girl?
The princess who just stared you in the eyes yesterday, said “Daddy I LOVE you,” as you had successfully made her holiday one of meaning and joy.
Well… It’s YOUR princess, your daughter, your precious one that the administration is now saying will be best served if some dude showers up next to her in her lockeroom, showers, and bathrooms in the public schools of America.
From the New York Times:
Federal education authorities, staking out their firmest position yet on an increasingly contentious issue, found Monday that an Illinois school district violated anti-discrimination laws when it did not allow a transgender student who identifies as a girl and participates on a girls’ sports team to change and shower in the girls’ locker room without restrictions.
Education officials said the decision was the first of its kind on the rights of transgender students, which are emerging as a new cultural battleground in public schools across the country. In previous cases, federal officials had been able to reach settlements giving access to transgender students in similar situations. But in this instance, the school district in Palatine, Ill., has not yet come to an agreement, prompting the federal government to threaten sanctions. The district, northwest of Chicago, has indicated a willingness to fight for its policy in court.
The Education Department gave 30 days to the officials of Township High School District 211 to reach a solution or face enforcement, which could include administrative law proceedings or a Justice Department court action. The district could lose some or all of its Title IX funding.
It is the act of ultimate hubris for the administration to presume to tell us what we should believe about anything. If they attempted force me to wear a certain color of shoe or tie–that would be a visceral attack against our well being.
But to demand that they know better than you in a place as intimate as the shower that your daughter uses, a locker room she changes in, or bathroom she should be confidently privy to–is a few thousand steps beyond acceptable.
