Time to Homeschool? High School to Let Students Pick Locker Room Based on Their ‘Preferred Gender’

I suspect that we will see an exponential rise in homeschooling in the near future. Think about it, there are SO many downfalls of public schools.

  1. Bullying
  2. Drugs
  3. Common Core
  4. Gender-neutral bathrooms
  5. Shootings
  6. Non-nutrional lunches
  7. Liberal brainwashing

The list is endless! However, now there’s a cherry to throw on top of this massive mound of crap:

Beginning next semester, students at Evanston Township High School in Illinois will now be allowed to choose which locker room to use, that would best correspond to their preferred gender. If this is how they are choosing to handle things, why not just make it one giant locker room? Because it doesn’t make sense to mix boys and girls together when they are naked, right? Exactly! What’s the difference in that and allowing them to choose which room they use?

Heatstreet reports:


The Evanston Township High School’s board voted 6-1 on Monday to enact the policy change, saying it would protect transgender students. One board member told local media that the decision was a “significant civil rights breakthrough,” while another described it as “a huge step forward.”

Before, Evanston Township High School let students choose which pronouns they’re called, which bathroom they use, and which physical-education class they attend, all depending on their gender self-identification. The school also offers gender-neutral transcripts. And until now, it has provided a third, gender-neutral locker room for transgender students.

But one transgender student, Eric Greenfield, told the Daily Northwestern that using the gender-neutral locker room required students to “pretty much come out.”

Similar polices have been controversial elsewhere in Illinois; in 2015, more than 50 families sued after a Palatine high school opened its locker rooms to transgender students. That lawsuit is still ongoing.

The Palatine case has left legal questions about Evanston Township High School’s new policy “ambiguous and unresolved,” said Doug Holt, the lone board member who voted against the new locker room policy.

But another board member, Gretchen Livingston, said that not changing the locker room policy could also open up the high school to litigation, explaining that “the real risk to our district is a lawsuit brought by a transgender student.”

It sounds like the school needs a psychologist rather than transgendered locker rooms because what these kids have is not a physical problem, but a mental one. They are confused about their identity and need professional help!
