Sexual integration coming to high school locker rooms

"Celebrate Diversity" bannerIllinois' largest public school district is caving to the LGBTQ crowd by moving to implement a policy to give unrestricted bathroom and locker room usage to transgenders.

In 2016, a boy identifying as a girl sued the district for access to the girls' facilities. Though school officials relented to his perceived identity, they refused to give him the unrestricted access he sought. But Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute says Township High School District 211 Superintendent Dr. Daniel Cates now wants to grant those who identify as transgender free access to opposite sex restrooms and locker rooms.

"What this means is if a boy who pretends to be a girl is allowed unrestricted access to the girls' locker room, it means he can use that locker room in exactly the same way as the girls are allowed to use it," Higgins explains.

She does not believe school administrators really want boys in the girls' locker rooms or vice versa, "but what they care more about is lawsuits," Higgins continues. "So I think they will use this as precedent, as justification or rationalization for changing policies before a lawsuit comes to them."

But unless there is a "miraculous public protest," she expects the policy will pass when the school board votes on it next month, affecting 12,000 students and five high schools.
