Girls Sex Locker Room

Female student A, who is 14 years old, told The Daily Signal in a phone interview that she was dressing for a game when the trans-identifying student began to enter the locker room. She shared that she was not wearing a shirt, only a bra, and was halfway through putting on her shorts.

Female student B said that though she asked the trans-identifying student to leave the locker room, the student stayed. When she and her fellow teammates tried to bring the matter to school officials, she said, they were told that they had to comply with state law (which allow students to use bathrooms and locker rooms corresponding with the gender they identify with).

In a Tuesday email to families, co-principals Lisa Floyd and Caty Sutton as well as Athletics and Activities Director Nick Bent announced that the locker room would be closed to all volleyball players until further notice.

While the law surrounding transgender students continues to evolve, school officials should evaluate requests from transgender students on a case-by-case basis and strive for full inclusion. Installation of privacy curtains in all locker rooms may be a reasonable, cost-effective way to ensure all students are fully included. In the case above, however, such a solution was acceptable to OCR only because the student indicated a desire to change behind a curtain. OCR generally takes the position that the students with privacy concerns, not the transgender student, must change behind a curtain.

A former middle school coach at a school in Mississippi admitted to filming girls in a school locker room at a court hearing for child pornography, according to a report from Magnolia State Live and our partners at the Mississippi Clarion Ledger.

A group of 51 families in Palatine, Illinois, filed a lawsuit in May after Township High School District 211 implemented a policy permitting access to restrooms and locker rooms on the basis of gender identity.

The transgender student, a 17-year-old senior who goes by the name of Lila Perry, began identifying as female halfway through the last school year. Perry wears wigs and skirts to school and last year was permitted to use a gender-neutral faculty restroom.

Good sought the help of Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative legal group, and co-wrote a letter to the school board. The letter included a suggested policy that would allow transgender students to continue using gender-neutral restrooms, but not facilities designated for the opposite sex.

Some school districts seem to be interpreting legal guidance issued by the U.S. Department of Education last year as requiring them to allow transgender students to use the restroom of their preference. The guidance had addressed gender identity in relation to Title IX, a 1972 law meant to prevent sex discrimination in federally funded schools.

The same thing could have been asked when Lia Thomas, a biological male, beat out Emma Weyant at the NCAA 500-yard freestyle swimming championship. Where was her father, or the fathers of the other girls competing against Thomas? And why were they silent?

The incident that occurred at Randolph Union is tragic, and incensing. Young girls deserve to be protected and have their privacy rights respected. Hopefully, one day, that will be the law again in America.

For the past few summers I have brought my son with me into the women's locker room at King pool when he gets ready for his swim classes. This year he is seven and they have a rule that 7 year olds *must* use the room corresponding with their sex. We were recently barred from a family swim because I wasn't willing to let him go into the men's locker room alone. My first thought was ''are these people crazy?'' The man working there said my son had to go in alone and they weren't required to supervise him. I'm considering giving him swim lessons elsewhere this summer and am wondering a couple of things: 1. is this a rule at most public pools? 2. is this legal? who is legally responsible for my *unsupervised* minor child should he god forbid get hurt or victimized in the locker room?( I'm guessing since I signed a waiver when signing him up for swim classes that the person responsible would be *me*. --and thus I should be the one watching him) 3. Is there a way to get around this rule at king? --can I refuse to sign the waiver and still take him to swim? 4. what could the legal basis for this possibly be? I'm justified, don't you think? I think my son would prefer to go himself but it's one thing for him to go in a public men's bathroom with me waiting outside and checking on him and yet *another* for me to expect his safety in an unsupervised public locker room situation where *any* male, whether child, teenager or adult, could be in there with him, changing clothes and showering. Even if I weren't worried about sex offenders, what if he slips in the shower? what if there is an altercation w/ another boy? That doesn't seem so far-fetched to me. I'm a pretty relaxed parent about most things, but I'm definitely not willing to let him go into a men's locker room alone. I guess I may be finding him other lessons. I find this incredibly unfair. concerned mom

I was a competitive swimmer from age 5 and changed in locker rooms without my parents from then on. I'm a girl, but boys did the same thing in their locker rooms. Granted, this was in the 70s, but I think it's naive to think there are either more people that prey on children now, or less people that preyed on children then. Talk to your son and prepare him. Give him some credit and independence - it will HELP him take care of himself. Do you also tag along at recess when he's at school? He can get in altercations then - probably more likely to do so because he knows the kids. And you're worried about him slipping and falling? That's starting to sound a little hysterical on your part. He can slip and fall anytime, even if you're standing right next to him.

And as a side note, as a woman, I would be very uncomfortable changing in the locker room with your seven year old son in there looking on. Not to be rude, but you know, it's not ALL about you and your son. ANON

The same 'rule' is stated for my neighborhood pool in El Cerrito. There is no statutory code posted with the sign as with other posted rules, so I take it to be an arbitrary preference. There are other arbitrary preferences the pool has, which I have decided myself to follow or not. My children often want to wear noodles tied around their torso. When seeing this the lifeguard typically whistles or shouts ''not allowed''. I go over and remind him or her I am within arms reach at all times. Reason always wins. It of course helps too that I am a 44 yo man, and the lifeguard usually a 17 year old kid. I'm let break the 'rules'. I view nonstatutory rules as guides for behavior, not as absolutes. I'd prefer a child of 7, 8 or even older feel comfortable alone in a changeroom, over any potential discomfort I may feel with a 7 yo girl with her father in the changeroom with me. If that's not the norm, then I hope the child's parent will choose to make the decision himself or herself, vs leaving all reason to a simple signed 'rule'.

I think that this is a pretty typical requirement at pools. As a female swimmer, I do not particularly like it when older (7ish) boys come into the lock room. I feel like they are old enough to know what they are looking at, but not old enough to know they shouldn't stare, and the mothers are usually too busy getting them showered and dressed and doing the same for themselves that they do not notice.

Not to belittle your concern, since I don't have a son and so have never had this problem, I think that maybe you are building up your worries too much. I think at 7, a child is ready for this. I know it is probably hard to let go a bit and trust him in this situation, but I really think it is quite safe. It's not like he is not within ear shot of you. Stay by the door and let him know you will be listening. You can call to him to ask if he is ok. You are worried he might slip in the shower. Well, he might slip on the playground, he might slip in the bathroom at home, he might slip getting out of bed in the morning. He will be ok. You are worried that he might have trouble with some other boys in the locker room. Again, this is something he is likely to encounter (and probably already has) at school, at the playground, etc. If an actual brawl broke out, you would hear it from outside the door. As far as sexual predators, you can warn him about danger signs (but try not to make him paranoid about any man in the locker room). I would imagine that the common MO of a predator of a young child would be to make friends with them first, and so you would obviously see if that was developing since you will be waiting for him right outside the door. I'm not familiar with King pool, but there is probably only one exit from the locker room, so you don't have to worry about abduction. swimmer

Change swimming lessons. I would never ever send my 7 year old son into a men's locker room alone, period. I have had several (now adult) family members be subjected to molestation as children & teens, no way am I even going to take a chance with my 7 year old. Young children in need of help often trustingly approach adult strangers in settings they are comfortable with (like a pool); 7 years old is just too young to have good judgment about this. The accidents etc. you describe as possibilties are likewise a good reason not to do this. anon

The downtown Berkeley YMCA has a similar policy, only I think it is ''over 5''. They also have some ''family changing rooms'' where the entire family can go in together and change, but boys are not allowed in the womens' locker room over a certain age. I believe this is because many women and especially young women and girls are just not comfortable taking their clothes off with boys around. I have three sons, the youngest is 6. My boys started to be modest about undressing in front of mom and others around the age of 5 or 6. This seems like a natural time to give them the responsibility to dress and undress themselves without mom to help. I think a 7 year old is totally capable of changing out of street cloths to a swimsuit and back. He is not going to get ''lost'' in the locker room - you are waiting for him and you can follow up if there are unreasonable delays. You need to give him the chance to grow up in this way now. He is not going to have mom around always. Ginger
