Two years ago a student asked Palatine-based Township District 211 to accommodate him, as he was transgender. This young, unnamed student wanted permission to use the girls locker room. The district, seeking to protect the girls in their care, declined this request.
This was immediately followed by that student going to the ACLU and filing suit with the Office of Civil Right of the U.S. Department of Education. Talks began, and no accommodations or compromises could be met. These talks finally ended with the district being threatened by the Federal government. The threat of loss of money caused the district to cave and allow the boy to use the girl’s locker room. But this was not the end of the issue.

The U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Justice have been sued by over 50 families for forcing a school district to allow a male student who identifies as female to use the girls’ locker room at his local high school.
“It’s a massive step backwards to force women to give up their inherent right to bodily privacy,” said Thomas More Society attorney Jocelyn Floyd in a statement. “To impose such a rule on still-developing teenage girls, as they’re already struggling with puberty’s changes on their bodies and social pressures to look a certain way, undermines their dignity and tells them that their rights don’t matter. This isn’t a message our schools should be sending to our girls.”
This and like issues point out the folly and hypocrisy of the liberal feminist movement. If the care and prosperity of women were its focus and goal, the transgender bathroom issue would not stand a chance.
As it is, the parents of these young girls are forced to pay for and fight this injustice on their own. If there is any justice left in this land, they will make this a costly fight for the government.
