Oregon Judge Rules High School Boys Must Share Locker Room And Bathrooms With Transgender Boy

A federal judge in Oregon has ruled that high school boys in an Oregon school district must allow a girl who claims she is a boy to share their bathrooms and locker room.

In a lawsuit filed by parents and students at a high school in Dallas, Oregon, the plaintiffs stated that the boys felt “embarrassment, humiliation, anxiety, intimidation, fear, apprehension, and stress produced by using the restroom with students of the opposite sex.”

But U.S. District Judge Marco Hernandez ruled “high school students do not have a fundamental privacy right to not share school restrooms, lockers, and showers with transgender students whose biological sex is different than theirs.” He wrote that the stress the boys felt was not “comparable to the plight of transgender students who are not allowed to use facilities consistent with their gender identity.”

The transgender boy in question is Elliot Yoder, who had been using a gender-neutral bathroom before gym, but Yoder wanted to use the boys locker room to change clothes because the gender-neutral bathroom was two floors away from the gym.

Brook Shelley of Basic Rights Oregon said, “We are thrilled with the judge’s decision.”

As USNews reported, “The potential threat that a high school student might see or be seen by someone of the opposite biological sex while either are undressing or performing bodily functions ‘does not give rise to a constitutional violation,’ Hernandez concluded. Furthermore, bathrooms have stalls with doors for privacy, he noted.”

In 2015, the Obama Administration Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights threatened to remove funding from Illinois’ Township High School District 211 if it didn’t permit a boy claiming to be a girl to use the girls locker room. The letter from the department informed the district that it was violating Title IX, which barred sex discrimination in K-12 districts that received federal funding.

      Agreed if this is allowed in schools, the pupils should abstain from all school sports and activities that would require the need of the locker rooms and showers, least the ladies toilets and vice versa have stalls. What next the faculty join the kids in the shower cause they feel like their 12 but are 36, but their biological age shouldn’t count, science/facts shouldn’t count not in places of learning. Ridiculous, letting freaks construct a new society, one I am certainly not down with.

    The government is telling us what is right and what is wrong, and they are using our money to do this. It is our tax dollars they are threatening to withhold from schools that do not comply with their mandates. Civil rights, my foot. What about the people that still believe that boys are born boys and girls are born girls? What about our civil rights? All of a sudden we are the odd ones out? So very sad for all of us.

    Not being mean, but have you see “Elliot?” Not exactly a supermodel. This is probably the closest she will ever get to seeing a naked boy/man.

    Yes, they’re are a lot of sick leftist demented drug users in the entire state of Oregon, Washington and most assuredly northern California. It’s actually sickening to see what’s happening in these states and why nothing is being done to stop these Democratic socialist communist from their takeover and destruction of these states. The politically socialist / commie people ruining these states should be thrown out of office in November by people of the west coast who still have love for their states and our country. Watch out for voter fraud.
