I know sometimes it doesn’t seem like it, but we are winning this culture war. It’s just that it’s dragging on and on. But that’s because he left is losing their grip, so they’re now feverishly grasping at straws and going bonkers. What’s scary, and infuriating, is that they’re going after our kids in the process and that’s upped the game, significantly. And speaking of that “game,” we just won a huge round in the culture war, thanks to a very close vote in a federal appeals court. Doesn’t matter how close, we’ll take the win. It’s been a case that’s been dragged out for five long years now, and it involves kids pretending to be other genders and which bathroom they use.
CBS News reported that after a five-year legal battle, a sharply divided federal appeals court Friday upheld a St. Johns County School Board policy that prevented a transgender male student from using boys’ bathrooms at a high school.
The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in a 7-4 decision, said the policy did not violate the constitutional equal-protection rights of Drew Adams, who was required to use a gender-neutral, single-stall bathroom or girls’ bathrooms while a student at Nease High School.
The court’s majority also said the policy did not violate Title IX, a federal law that prevents discrimination based on sex in education programs.
In a 50-page majority opinion, Judge Barbara Lagoa wrote that the school-board policy “advances the important governmental objective of protecting students’ privacy in school bathrooms.”
“The school board’s bathroom policy is clearly related to – indeed, is almost a mirror of – its objective of protecting the privacy interests of students to use the bathroom away from the opposite sex and to shield their bodies from the opposite sex in the bathroom, which, like a locker room or shower facility, is one of the spaces in a school where such bodily exposure is most likely to occur,” Lagoa, a former Florida Supreme Court justice, wrote.
But in one of four dissenting opinions, Judge Jill Pryor wrote that each time Adams needed to use the bathroom, he “was forced to endure a stigmatizing and humiliating walk of shame – past the boys’ bathrooms and into a single-stall ‘gender neutral’ bathroom.” She said the court majority “labels Adams as unfit for equal protection based on his transgender status.”
“To start, the majority opinion simply declares – without any basis – that a person’s ‘biological sex’ is comprised solely of chromosomal structure and birth-assigned sex,” Pryor wrote. “So, the majority opinion concludes, a person’s gender identity has no bearing on this case about equal protection for a transgender boy. The majority opinion does so in disregard of the record evidence – evidence the majority does not contest – that gender identity is an immutable, biological component of a person’s sex.”
Well, I am sorry, but the entire school should not be made to feel uncomfortable because.a child, who doesn’t have the legal wherewithal to vote, drive, or drink alcohol, has suddenly changed their gender.
Enough of forcing everyone else to celebrate, accept, and indulge in these radical and fantastical liberal lifestyles. I am sick of it, and I know I am not the only one.
