Obama administration says school must allow boy who 'identifies as female' to shower with girls
What could possibly go wrong?
Via Weekly Standard:
The U.S. Department of Education found a Chicago-area school district discriminated against a transgender student by failing to provide her full access to girls’ locker rooms.
“All students deserve the opportunity to participate equally in school programs and activities — this is a basic civil right,” Assistant U.S. Secretary for Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon said in a statement Monday.
The student who hasn’t been publicly identified participates on a girls’ sports team, but has been required to change and shower separately from her teammates and classmates.
The case out of Illinois is the latest controversy since the Obama administration’s Department of Justice and Department of Education have ruled that anatomically male teenagers who think they’re girls have the right to shower and change clothes in girls’ locker rooms.
