Judge sides with females over 'girl' Nova Maday

Nova Maday trans dudeParents in Illinois concerned about the ACLU helping a transgender student get access to the girls' locker room are applauding a recent court decision in their favor.

The court refused to issue a preliminary injunction to allow a biologically male student to change clothing next to female students at Palatine High School.

The student, Nova Maday (pictured at right), has access to the girls' locker room at Palatine but he is required to change behind a curtain.

"To me, this is a simple question: am I going to be treated just like any other girl in my school?" Maday, who is biologically not a girl, complained after the judge's decision. 

Kellie Fiedorek of Alliance Defending Freedom says the ACLU is increasing attempts nationwide to allow transgender students into opposite-sex locker rooms.

"It's unfortunate that we're seeing this growing trend and coercion," she says, "that puts so many young children, especially girls, in harm's way."

Fiedorek says that the ACLU's contention that the Illinois Human Rights Act requires locker rooms to be shared is baseless.

"We'll see if the other side decides to appeal," she tells OneNewsNow. "But for now we're thankful that their demand was denied and that the privacy of the girls will continue to be protected."
