Twerking in the Girl’s Room

A Minnesota school is allowing a partially clothed boy to “twerk” in front of female classmates while they changed their clothes for physical education and sports events, prompting a federal lawsuit alleging violations of the Minnesota Constitution, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, federal law and the U.S. Constitution.

It’s not the first such case brought by lawyers with the Alliance Defending Freedom, which already has filed cases against school districts in Illinois and Ohio over the same issue, which is the Obama administration’s attempt to rewrite the federal Title IX law concerning education.

The law bans discrimination based on sex in public schools, but Obama is interpreting “sex” to also mean “gender identity” to allow boys who say they are girls to enter girls restrooms, lockers and showers.

That’s exactly the scenario in the Virginia, Minnesota, School District, where officials adopted the Washington redefinition to allow “Student X,” a boy, to enter girls’ facilities at will.

The lawsuit was brought by ADF on behalf of multiple female students and their parents.

It notes under the district’s policy the boy “dances to loud music with sexually explicit lyrics in the locker room while ‘twerking,’ ‘grinding,’ and lifting up his skirt to reveal his underwear,” according to the lawsuit.

The boy also “commented on girls’ bodies while in the girls’ locker room, including asking Girl Plaintiff F her bra size and asking her to ‘trade body parts’ with him both while he and Girl Plaintiff F were in the girls’ locker room and outside the locker room in the gym.”

And when several girls obtained permission to use a different locker room, he followed them there to change, the lawsuit explains.

Alliance Defending Freedom alleges Student X engaged in inappropriate and sexually suggestive behavior – leaving some girls in tears.

Among the allegations:

  • Student X commented on girls’ bodies while in the girls’ locker room, including asking Girl Plaintiff F about her bra size and asking her to “trade body parts” with him;
  • Student X danced to loud music with sexually explicit lyrics while twerking, grinding and lifting up his skirt to reveal his underwear;
  • Student X would dance in a sexually explicit manner “dancing like he was on a stripper pole” to songs with suggestive lyrics including “Milkshake” by Kelis.

The school told girls who felt uncomfortable they should consider using a secondary locker room in the basement of the elementary school.

“Plaintiff B and nearly half the junior varsity squad changed in the secondary locker room in hope that their privacy would not be violated,” the lawsuit states.

Midway through the season, Plaintiff A was told she could use a vacant boys’ basketball locker room – for privacy. But it wasn’t long before the transgender student showed up in that locker room.

“One on such occasion, Student X walked into the boys’ basketball locker room while Girl Plaintiff A was in her underwear and removed his pants while he was near her and other girls who were also changing,” the lawsuit states. “This incident deeply upset Girl Plaintiff A. It signaled to her that there was no place in the school where she could preserve her privacy under the new policy.”

ADF Attorney Matt Sharp told me the school district turned a blind eye to complaints raised by the girls and their parents.

“The school was very unsympathetic,” Sharp said. “This is showing what we have been warning for months now. When you strip away student privacy, there’s going to be consequences for that.”

School officials did not return a WND request for comment.

As a result, the lawsuit states, the girls are suffering “anxiety, stress, humiliation, embarrassment, intimidation, fear, apprehension and distress.”

Some of the girls likely will transfer to other public schools, homeschool or go to private schools, for which their parents will have to obtain additional employment to subsidize, the complaint explains.

The lawsuit also names the Departments of Education and Justice as complicit in the change of the definition of “sex” as well as threats to withhold funding from the school district.

“School policies should promote the rights and safety of every student, but that’s not what Virginia Public Schools is doing – and it’s certainly not what the departments of Education and Justice are doing,”” said ADF Senior Counsel Gary McCaleb. “No child should be forced into an intimate setting, like a locker room, with someone of the opposite sex. Telling girls that their privacy and modesty don’t merit a private and secure changing area is an attack on women.

“The school district should rescind its privacy-violating policies, and the court should order the DOE and DOJ to stop bullying school districts with falsehoods about what federal law requires.”

Added ADF Legal Counsel Doug Wardlow: “Federal bureaucrats cannot simply write letters to redefine the meaning of a federal law to serve their own political ends. The Department of Education went beyond what it is legally and constitutionally allowed to do, and the DOJ is out of bounds in enforcing the DOE’s false interpretation of the law. In fact, several federal courts have already rejected the DOE’s interpretation of Title IX.”

The core of the Obama administration’s argument is that Congress, when it adopted Title IX in 1972, intended for boys to enter girls restrooms and girls to enter boys’ facilities when it banned discrimination based on “sex.”

That interpretation was never argued prior to the Obama administration’s campaign for transgenders.

ADF said: “The DOE and DOJ base their threats against school districts on the agencies’ inaccurate interpretation of Title IX, a 1972 federal law intended to protect women from invidious discrimination and that flatly prohibits schools from discriminating ‘on the basis of sex.’ Contrary to what the DOE and DOJ are saying, Title IX’s existing regulations specifically state that a school receiving federal funds can ‘provide separate toilet, locker room, and shower facilities on the basis of sex’ without putting that funding at risk.”

ADF-allied attorney Renee Carlson is serving as local counsel in the case, Privacy Matters v. United States Department of Education, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota.

The case asks for injunctions to halt the schools’ permission for boys to use girls’ showers and for the court to retain jurisdiction in the case to see that its orders are carried out.

“The policy denies Girl Plaintiffs access to educational programs – including classes, athletics, private locker rooms and private restrooms – which, in turn, excludes Girl Plaintiffs from educational programs and activities in violation of Title IX,” the lawsuit contends.

Besides the cases already brought by ADF, there are other cases over the issue. WND reported last month a federal judge in Texas blocked the president’s order to open public school restrooms and shower rooms according to “gender identity” and allow boys who believe they are girls to use girls’ facilities.

U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor of Fort Worth found that the Obama administration did not follow proper procedures in creating the directives. Further, he said the guidelines contradicted existing statutes and regulatory texts, the Dallas Morning News reported.

The judge pointed out, “It cannot be disputed that the plain meaning of the term sex as used in [existing law] when it was enacted by DOE following passage of Title IX meant the biological and anatomical differences between male and female students as determined at their birth.”

The U.S. Supreme Court already has stepped into the issue, blocking a court order in Virginia that gave a girl who identifies as a boy the right to use boys’ restrooms. The order will stand until the Supreme Court decides whether to accept the case.

The decision in Fort Worth came in a case brought by Texas and about a dozen other states. Texas officials said the administration’s demand “hold a gun to the head” of school districts, threatening them with the loss of funding.

But don’t worry, Liberals are obsessed with preventing bullying. 🙂

When in Trouble

Blame You Tube?  No, that’s Hillary

Blame Republicans? No, That’s Democrats

Blame Conservatives?  Not quite.

I know, GLOBAL WARMING!!!  That’s the Ticket!

As retailer Target sees its stock plummeting and sales dropping in the midst of a boycott over its recently announced pro-transgender bathroom policy, the company’s CEO is insisting the weather is the cause of falling sales, not the company’s bathroom policy.

In a recent Wall Street Journal interview, Target CEO Brian Cornell pegged the downturn in the company’s fortunes to the cold weather as opposed to anything the company itself is doing or not doing.

“It’s been a very wet and cold start to the year and it’s reflected in our sales,” Cornell told the paper. “We haven’t seen anything from a structural standpoint that gives us pause.”

In other words, the weather is responsible for the downturn, not Target’s  “structural” transgender bathroom policy.

Indeed, a month after the initial announcement, the Target CEO came out to double down on the transgender agenda (He played the race card- I’m surprised it took him this long) , so it appears the company is digging in heels instead of looking for ways at appeal to customers.

I still think they need to get rid of Men’s and Women’s Bathrooms altogether as they still discriminatory or install a new “Other” or “None of The Above” Bathroom. I’m sure the remodeling costs would be minimal compared to the consumer money that would just flood in… 🙂

Still, Cornell’s weather assessment does not quite tally with other reports stating Target has taken a major hit since it announced its transgender policy.

Granted, most retailers have been down over the first quarter and the start of the second quarter this year. But Target has been on a downward trend exceeding the fall of its competitors. Target, for instance, says it will post a $1 to a $1.20 adjusted earnings per share, which is well below the $1.38 analysts expected. Further, at 1.2 percent, the company’s sales are below the 1.5 to 2.5 percent annual target it had hoped to realize. With the tumble, Target warned that its sales might be flat by the end of the second quarter.

A closer examination, however, shows that sales and the company’s reputation have taken a particular hit since its April 19 pro-transgender bathroom announcement, a decision that sponsored a major boycott movement that earned 1.2 million supporters in only a week’s time.

A recent Business Insider article noted that Target’s reputation has tumbled six points among consumers in the last several months. In the months prior to the bathroom policy announcement, 42 percent of consumers said they would shop at the department store chain. But in the month following the bathroom policy announcement, the number dropped to 36 percent.

The reports also found that consumer perception of the Target brand is at its lowest in two years.

Whatever the cause of the drop, since April 19, Target has lost nearly $6 billion in stock values.

But at least their sanctimony is in tact. They are pandering to their people. That’s all that matters, right?

Stall Wars

Why are there no urinals in Ladies Rooms? Are they trans-shaming? I think they are! Can we get to work putting a row of urinals in all women’s bathrooms? I don’t want to hear it would be too expensive! What’s the price of an early-stage transitioning man walking into a female locker room and not finding a urinal? We can’t be that hateful, can we? It’s only right, you know…C’mon…it’s 2016!!!!!–Dennis Miller

Of course every business needs to remodel their bathrooms. It’s not like the days of “White” and “Colored” Bathrooms! It’s 2016.

The Age of Big Brother. Where the Government mandate you allow Men dressed as Women into the Bathroom with no proof whatsoever otherwise you’re a “bigot”. It’s a “Civil Rights Issue” to allow Men dressed as Women into a Women’s Restroom so we can’t have them restricted to just the stalls ( I guess they have them since I’ve never been in one) so we must require then to install urinals and the plumbing to match. 🙂

Oh and we need to rename them also. Men’s and Women’s Bathrooms is discrimination against the New Civil Rights of our Transgendered Media-Darlings.

Orwell has a new language to teach all us “bigots” so that we don’t offend the Crybaby Generation with our multiple millenials old “bigotry”.

HE/SHE HIM/HER HIS/HER HIS/HERS HIMSELF/HERSELF
zie zim zir zis zieself
sie sie hir hirs hirself
ey em eir eirs eirself
ve ver vis vers verself
tey ter tem ters terself
e em eir eirs emself

Some languages, such as English, do not have a gender neutral or third gender pronoun available, and this has been criticized, since in many instances, writers, speakers, etc. use “he/his” when referring to a generic individual in the third person. Also, the dichotomy of “he and she” in English does not leave room for other gender identities, which is a source of frustration to the transgender and gender queer communities.

So English itself is discriminatory and “bigoted” as a language in and of itself according to our fine folks (mind you there is no actual language that isn’t by this criteria).

Maybe we should just scrap it for…I don’t know… INGSOC, maybe . 🙂

How do I ask someone what pronouns they use?

Try asking: “What pronouns do you use?” or “Can you remind me what pronouns you use?” It can feel awkward at first, but it is not half as awkward as getting it wrong or making a hurtful assumption.

Now that’s conversation started right out of Emily Post. 🙂

When someone is referred to with the wrong pronoun, it can make them feel disrespected, invalidated, dismissed, alienated, or dysphoric (profound state of unease or dissatisfaction) (or, often, all of the above.)

I’m dysphoric about the New INGSOC. 🙂

It is a privilege to not have to worry about which pronoun someone is going to use for you based on how they perceive your gender. If you have this privilege, yet fail to respect someone else’s gender identity, it is not only disrespectful and hurtful, but also oppressive. (LGBT Resource Center)

So don’t be an evil, oppressive bore, be Politically Correct. 🙂

Yes, one day you may be threatened with prosecution by some liberal for refusing to refer to a transgender who believes she’s a ze so take a few minutes to study the Big Brother pamphlet so you don’t get “re-educated” by a red-hot, “oppressed” Liberal.

Your local Liberal Thought Police Regiment will thank you.

 

Penis The 13th

The Obama administration is issuing guidance to schools Friday, saying they must allow transgender students to use the bathroom that matches their gender identity.

If you don’t, then Big Bad Big Brother will come down on you hard if you don’t allow little boys (whose understanding of sexuality is being perverted by Liberals for their political games) who the adults say are little girls into the little girls room.

The letter says that schools must immediately respect a student’s new gender identity as soon as it is declared by their parent or guardian. Schools are not allowed to require that a student provide a medical diagnosis to justify the change, and they also cannot require a student to legally change their gender.

So all you have to do is declare your little cherub is a girl and he can wave his penis in the girls bathroom to his hearts content!

No other proof required.

Oh HAPPY DAYS! 🙂

Under federal law, Title IX, schools that receive federal funding are not allowed to discriminate against students on the basis of sex. The guidance going out to school districts on Friday makes it clear that as far as the departments of Justice and Education are concerned, that word “sex” includes gender identity.

Why? BECAUSE THEY SAY SO. AND THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA! WE ARE FROM BIG BROTHER AND YOU WILL DO AS WE SAY BECAUSE WE SAY SO!

After all, we are the ones who decided that the federal Laws that apply to Illegal Immigrants don’t actually apply to them because we don’t want them to. 🙂

A school must allow transgender students to use the bathroom consistent with their gender identity. A school cannot require transgender students to use individual restrooms or locker rooms when other students are not required to do so. Schools can, however, offer individual restrooms to all students.

Porkies Lives! Boys and Girls showering together! Nirvana!

It’s not a mandate, but since Big Brother and Sister Lynch will look poorly on you if you don’t comply and have to their Power to bear on you…

HOMO SUPERIOR LIBERALIS UBER ALLES!

HEIL OBAMA! OR ELSE!

 

 

It’s zir way or the highway

A New Years Gift brought to be the fine people of the “Tolerance”, “Diversity” and “Inclusion” crowd.

The morally superior Left. 🙂

Did you call a transsexual person “he” or “she” when they preferred to be called “zhe?” According to a newly updated anti-discrimination law in New York City, you could be fined an eye-watering $250,000.

In the latest, astonishing act of draconian political correctness, the NYC Commission on Human Rights have updated a law on “Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Expression” to threaten staggering financial penalties against property owners who “misgender” employees or tenants.

Incidents that are deemed “wilful and malicious” will see property owners face up to $250,000 in fines, while standard violations of the law will result in a $125,000 fine. For small business owners, these sums are crippling.

It’s not as simple as referring to transmen “he” or transwomen as “she,” either. The legislation makes it clear that if an individual desires, property owners will have to make use of “zhe,” “hir” and any other preferred pronoun. From the updated legislation:

The NYCHRL requires employers and covered entities to use an individual’s preferred name, pronoun and title (e.g., Ms./Mrs.) regardless of the individual’s sex assigned at birth, anatomy, gender, medical history, appearance, or the sex indicated on the individual’s identification. Most individuals and many transgender people use female or male pronouns and titles.

Some transgender and gender non-conforming people prefer to use pronouns other than he/him/his or she/her/hers, such as they/them/theirs or ze/hir

Other violations of the law include refusing to allow individuals to use single-sex facilities such as bathrooms that are “consistent with their gender identity,” failing to provide employee health benefits for “gender-affirming care” and “imposing different uniforms or grooming standards based on sex or gender.”

Examples of such illegal behaviour include: “requiring female bartenders to wear makeup,” “Permitting only individuals who identify as women to wear jewellery or requiring only individuals who identify as male to have short hair,” and “permitting female but not male residents at a drug treatment facility to wear wigs and high heels.”

So, Klinger on M*A*S*H could not get Col. Blake or Col. Potter fined $250,000 for objecting to him where a dress to work. (Military Protocols aside because after all, that just government sanctioned discrimination anyhow).

Not mention that Klinger being of Middle Eastern descent could also charge him with Islamophobia!

Yeah, that make perfect sense! 🙂

In other words, if a bar owner prevents male bartenders from wearing lipstick and heels, they’ll be breaking the law. They’ve now got a choice between potentially scaring off customers, and paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. Regardless of the establishment’s clientèle or aesthetic, every property owner will be forced to conform to the same standard.

This is the latest in what Spiked Online editor-in-chief Brendan O’Neill calls “The Crisis of Character” in the west, in which identities become grounded in subjective interpretation rather than objective reality. The state is now forcing society to recognise the subjective identities of individuals, regardless of how absurd or surreal they may seem. In New York City, recognising someone’s identity is no longer a matter of case-by-case common sense and courtesy. It’s zir way or the highway. (Breitbart)

And in Orwellian Language Manipulation and Reality Control along with Moral Relativism (where the  only moral thing is do the Leftist Politically Correct thing or be a “bigot”, “racist” or both).

The Left: We want to do whatever the fuck we want to do, and when we want to do it, because we want to do it and you heathen mongrel Neanderthals who aren’t worth of kissing our ass will just have to shut and do as you are told or else.

We are the superior beings and we will rule over you with an iron fist of “social justice”.

We are your Superiors in every way possible, now and forever.

You do as your told when you are told, or else!

<<insert maniacal laugh here>>

Welcome to end of 2015, The Year of Orwellian Madness.

Here comes 2016, the End of The World Vote.

You will bow down peasants to your new Monarch, Queen Hillary The First.

That is the only choice you will be given to avoid punishment.

Or Else, The Scarlet “B” (BIGOT) be ‘tattooed’ on your forever!

You will burn in Liberal Politically Incorrect until you are re-educated and renounce your unenlightened non-diversity, non-inclusion and intolerant heathen ways.

It’s The Children

Children and Brainwashing

In 1984 the party is constantly brainwashing the people of Oceania. They are trying to make them believe that the party is wonderful, that Big Brother is amazing and that everyone should love, and be loyal, only to the party. The way the party brainwashes people is quite effective. They start young, the spies, the youth leagues, these are all ways for them to get to children, to get them on their side, to turn them into obedient little party members. The Spies reminds me a great deal of the Hitler Youth. They have the same philosophy, grab them when they’re young and impressionable, and then stuff them so full of propaganda that they believe what ever you tell them.

You see the effects of this childhood brainwashing in Julia. She has been subjected to the party’s propaganda all of her life and in some ways she is far more immune to it than Winston, but in other ways she believes just what they want her to. Julia says that if you follow the important rules, go to the rallies and marches and such, you can break the little rules without worrying too much. Winston on the other hand, before he met Julia, would just as soon skip his evening at the community centre as go and be an obedient party member. However Julia doesn’t seem to have a problem with the way the party changes the past. How really there is no concrete past only a constantly changing present. She seems to think it is inevitable and nothing particularly important, where as Winston is terrified by it.

There are other reasons for having organizations like the spies. When the party gathers children into groups like the spies they are creating a network of miniature thought police. Once they have been taught to believe the party knows all they are no longer loyal to anyone but them. Children will willingly denounce their family members to the thought police. That is the ultimate horror to have your own children betray you. (1984 blogspot)

So we have another example of “Inclusion”, “Diversity” and “tolerance” from the Left.

Oct 2014: Nebraska teachers are instructed to ask students what their preferred pronouns are. A Nebraska school district has instructed its teachers to stop referring to students by “gendered expressions” such as “boys and girls,” and use “gender inclusive” ones such as “purple penguins” instead.

“Don’t use phrases such as ‘boys and girls,’ ‘you guys,’ ‘ladies and gentlemen,’ and similarly gendered expressions to get kids’ attention,” instructs a training document given to middle-school teachers at the Lincoln Public Schools. “Create classroom names and then ask all of the ‘purple penguins’ to meet on the rug,” it advises.

The document also warns against asking students to “line up as boys or girls,” and suggests asking them to line up by whether they prefer “skateboards or bikes/milk or juice/dogs or cats/summer or winter/talking or listening.” “Always ask yourself . . . ‘Will this configuration create a gendered space?’” the document says. The instructions were part of a list called “12 steps on the way to gender inclusiveness” developed by Gender Spectrum, an organization that “provides education, training and support to help create a gender sensitive and inclusive environment for children of all ages.”

Other items on the list include asking all students about their preferred pronouns and decorating the classroom with “all genders welcome” door hangers. If teachers still find it “necessary” to mention that genders exist at all, the document states, they must list them as “boy, girl, both or neither.” Furthermore, it instructs teachers to interfere and interrupt if they ever hear a student talking about gender in terms of “boys and girls” so the student can learn that this is wrong. “Point out and inquire when you hear others referencing gender in a binary manner,” it states. “Ask things like . . . ‘What makes you say that? I think of it a little differently.’ Provide counter-narratives that challenge students to think more expansively about their notions of gender.”

The teachers were also given a handout created by the Center for Gender Sanity, which explains to them that “Gender identity . . . can’t be observed or measured, only reported by the individual,” and an infographic called “The Genderbred Person,” which was produced by http://www.ItsPronouncedMetroSexual.com. Despite controversy, Lincoln Superintendent Steve Joel has declared that he is “happy” and “pleased” with the training documents. “We don’t get involved with politics,” he told KLIN Radio’s Drive Time Lincoln radio show. “We don’t get involved with gender preferences. We’re educating all kids . . . and we can’t be judgmental,” he said. (NRO)

Three weeks Later:

After nearly a month of defending them, Lincoln Public Schools District in Nebraska has finally agreed to stop using the infamous “purple penguin” transgender training handouts. At Tuesday’s Lincoln Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Steve Joel conceded that the handouts were not “appropriate, purposeful” or “clear,” and that he “directed them to be removed” from the district’s schools, according to an article in the Lincoln Journal Star.

The announcement came after 16 people commented that they felt their concerns about the matter were not heard when they initially raised them at the October 14 board meeting. Joel had initially defended the handouts, saying he was “happy” and “pleased” with them — even amid the controversy.

Unrepentant, it was just reversed because of a “hater” overload. 🙂

During his press conference, Joel called it “regrettable” and “truly unfortunate” that the school district has had to waste so much time and energy answering questions and fielding calls about the training on gender inclusiveness used during summer teacher training at Irving Middle School, and possibly other LPS schools.

He said the school district won’t be “held hostage” by differing viewpoints and will continue to find ways to help all students succeed.

You see, THEY are the victims of “haters” and the unenlightened.

All the national attention has incited controversy and differences of opinion, but Joel said while that’s been uncomfortable, it “will not deter us.”

We have a holy mission to bring enlightenment to the savages.

Steve Joel is listed prominently as a national recruiter for an Omaha company called McPherson & Jacobson, which conducts national searches for boards of education and claims it has placed over 500 superintendents and other officials nationwide. The company website says Joel joined the firm in 1997 and is an executive board member and on the board of directors.

Joel being selected as a mentor for a national organization to promote more diversity in the leadership of public school organizations.

So I wonder what kind of members he recruits? Conservatives or Orwellian Liberals?  hmmm. 🙂
