The left said it wouldn’t happen. Back in May, when the Obama Administration decided that public schools had to open high school locker rooms to any student who “identified” with the opposite gender, aka transgender, people who understand natural sexual orientation sounded the alarm that the order itself would be abused by men and boys looking to take advantage of helpless women.
The left denied it would ever happen.
In one small town in rural Minnesota, Virginia (a name that causes quite a bit of confusion given that there is another transgender locker room lawsuit in the state of the same name), school officials complied with the federal order, assumingly, in order to keep from losing funding. And in what is most likely to be the first lawsuit of its kind, a “transgender” male abused the privilege of being just one of the girls by traumatizing them with twerking, and other assorted behavior that just is not done in the privacy of a girls-only space while participating as a member of a girls’ athletic team.
Alliance Defending Freedom has filed the suit on behalf of the families of eleven girls. According to the lawsuit itself, Student X, as the boy is known, is alleged to have done the following:
- Student X commented on girls’ bodies while in the girls’ locker room, including asking Girl Plaintiff F about her bra size and asking her to “trade body parts” with him;
- Student X danced to loud music with sexually explicit lyrics while twerking, grinding and lifting up his skirt to reveal his underwear;
- Student X would dance in a sexually explicit manner “dancing like he was on a stripper pole” to songs with suggestive lyrics including “Milkshake” by Kelis.
According to the Todd Starnes piece at Fox News, this occurred in an elementary school. The plaintiff girls were allowed to use another locker room – the vacant at that hour men’s basketball locker room – and the “transgender” student essentially joined them.
“Plaintiff B and nearly half the junior varsity squad changed in the secondary locker room in hope that their privacy would not be violated,” the lawsuit states….
“One on such occasion, Student X walked into the boys’ basketball locker room while Girl Plaintiff A was in her underwear and removed his pants while he was near her and other girls who were also changing,” the lawsuit states. “This incident deeply upset Girl Plaintiff A. It signaled to her that there was no place in the school where she could preserve her privacy under the new policy.”
Hence a lawsuit naming not just the school district, but Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and Secretary of Education John King.
“The school was very unsympathetic,” Sharp said. “This is showing what we have been warning for months now. When you strip away student privacy, there’s going to be consequences for that.”
It also shows that there is no getting around natural biology, no matter what the progressives desire.
The true victims in the transgender wars are not the people with screwed up mental wiring. It’s the women and girls who are subjected to having their privacy violated by men who take advantage of the self-identification. In a restroom or locker room, women are at their most vulnerable. To force abridgement of privacy in this way demonstrates a lack of respect not just for rights, but for women as women. In a way it’s a war. And women are the victims whether we want to be or not.
