Another court ruling opens another locker room for opposite sex

"Celebrate Diversity" bannerA federal appeals court has ruled on behalf of a female high school student, who lives as a male, who sued after she was separated from the all-male swim team and its locker room.

The ruling by the Minnesota Court of Appeals against the Anoka-Hennepin School District scored another legal victory for the pro-transgender movement that is backed by homosexual rights groups and legal groups such as the ACLU.

“I never want any student to experience the discrimination and cruelty I experienced from the adults at my school,” the female student, identified in court documents as N.H., said in a statement released by the ACLU of Minnesota.

The push to welcome opposite-sex athletes onto sports teams, and hence in their locker rooms, has been witnessed for years by Steve McConkey, a veteran track and field athlete who operates 4 WINDS Christian Athletics. 

"Really what this is about,” he tells OneNewsNow, “is just pushing the transgender movement on people...into accepting the LGBT movement."

And that push has scored numerous success stories in recent years. Accused of "discrimination" and "inequality," public school districts were threatened by the Obama administration to comply with pro-transgender demands or risk losing federal fundings. Those demands have been reversed by the Trump administration which recently sided with high school girls in Connecticut who are suing to keep biological boys --- who have dominated the female competitors -- off their all-girls track teams.

Back in Minnesota, the Anoka-Hennepin School District attempted a similar tactic when it gave "N.H." what The Associated Press called a "segregated" locker room. The student sued the district last year.

"Today’s decision makes it very clear," N.H. said, "that segregating trans students doesn’t just dehumanize us, it violates our legal rights.”
