The Nevada Legislature nixed a bill that would have prohibited the use of public school restrooms, locker rooms and showers by any biological gender other than the one specified, but appears to have passed a bill that mandates unisex facilities.
Assembly Bill 375 was the target of considerable derision. It would have put into law a requirement that “any school facility in a public school, including a restroom, locker room or shower which is designated for use by persons of one biological sex must only be used by persons of that biological sex, as determined at birth.”
But Senate Bill 504, labeled an anti-bullying bill, specifically protects people who might be discriminated against because of: “Actual or perceived race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability of a person, sex or any other distinguishing characteristic or background of a person …”
It high-mindedly dictates: “Every classroom, hallway, locker room, cafeteria, restroom, gymnasium, playground, athletic field, school bus, parking lot and other areas on the premises of a public school in this State must be maintained as a safe and respectful learning environment, and no form of bullying or cyber-bullying will be tolerated within the system of public education in this State …”
Among the prohibitions in SB504 is: “Blocking access to any property or facility of a school …”
There you have it. By Nevada law, you can’t bar boys from the girls’ showers.
