Coming to a school near you?
On Monday students at Hillsboro High School in Missouri staged a walkout over a 17-year-old boy who pretends to be a girl insisting on being able to use the girls’ locker room instead of a gender-neutral faculty facility.
This past legislative session Nevada lawmakers passed a sweeping anti-bullying law that 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 the law 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.
A bill that would have required public schools to provide gender-neutral facilities for boys who think they are girls and girls who think they are boys was scoffed at and went nowhere.
