Families sue Illinois school district over transgender bathroom case


CHICAGO (Reuters) - Dozens of families on Wednesday sued two federal agencies and a suburban Chicago school district over a policy they said disregards student privacy and safety by allowing transgender students to use bathrooms that correspond with their gender identity.
Fifty-one families in the Palatine, Illinois, area sued the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. Justice Department and Township High School District 211 for agreeing last December to provide a changing area in the girls’ locker room for transgender students.

That deal stemmed from a complaint filed in 2013 by the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois on behalf of a transgender student who was born male and identifies as female.



We live in amazing and unbelievable times. Supposedly the “legal basis” for Roe vs. Wade was the “right to privacy” the Supreme Court “found” in the Constitution. So as I understand it, there is a “right to privacy” that allows mothers to kill their unborn children, but 10 year old girls DON’T have a “right to privacy” from males in a bathroom or locker room? Am I understanding this current insanity right?


You are definitely on to something, but I am not sure anyone can understand the current insanity, unless you agree with Justice Anthony Kennedy that that basis of liberty is to define your own reality. Justice Scalia just did a triple roll in his grave.:shrug:
