When a liberal policy confronts your kids

School locker roomAnother transgender-friendly policy has led to yet another unavoidable incident, this time in a well-known California community.

After practicing at the Palm Springs Swim Center, female members of the high school water polo team entered the women's locker room and discovered a still-unidentified man showering there.

A local TV news station, News Channel 3, reported the man insisted he was female and left after the team coaches confronted him.

Palm Springs police told News Channel 3 that no arrests have been made because no laws were broken, since California has a "gender neutral" bathroom law.

It was reported that shower dividers might be installed, or a "unisex" shower might be added, but it was not clear how that would deter another biological man if such a liberal policy remains in place. 

Steve McConkey of 4 WINDS Christian Athletics tells OneNewsNow he has been warning the public for years about such incidents.

"Pretty much a person can go into any bathroom, and expose himself, and not get arrested," McConkey complains.

In days past, he points out, that person would be headed for jail.

On the other side of the country, a Florida public school district made headlines last fall when two P.E. coaches came forward to protest a transgender policy that allowed a biological girl to shower and change clothes in the boys' locker room.  

OneNewsNow reported the two coaches chose to speak out after they were threatened by school leaders for speaking up for the boys.

One coach said he was told he couldn't tell the boys a transgender male was coming into the locker room because it would violate "his" privacy, and he was threatened with a transfer as punishment for refusing to supervise the female undressing.  

Parents and supporters of the girls team protested the incident in front of the swim center, Channel 3 reported, but McConkey points out that Palm Springs is known as an LGBT-friendly community so the incident will likely be ignored, he predicts.

In fact, a statement issued by Palm Springs public schools states the district took the incident "very seriously" after it was reported. But the statement goes on to suggest that no parents nor team members have shared any "lingering concerns" with school administrators after the incident.

The news story also quoted two parents who said they never heard from school officials or city officials after complaining about the incident.
