The Patriot Post® · Activist Judge Rules Boy Can Use Girls' Room

By Culture Beat ·

In Illinois, Magistrate Judge Jeffery T. Gilbert ruled against parents who were seeking to protect their children’s privacy. The parents wanted to prevent transgendered students from accessing bathrooms, locker rooms and showers of the sex opposite of their biological sex. The case goes back to last winter, when parents challenged the school district’s plan to comply with Barack Obama’s mandated redefinition of sexual identity under Title IX. In his ruling, Judge Gilbert stated, “High school students do not have a constitutional right not to share restrooms or locker rooms with transgender students whose sex assigned at birth is different than theirs.” So much for the right to privacy.

The judge further commented, “A transgender person’s gender identity is an important factor to be considered in determining whether his or her needs, as well as those of cisgender people, can be accommodated in the course of allocating or regulating the use of restrooms and locker rooms.” Not only does this judge agree with people imposing their own sexual identities onto others, he’s also fine with them creating their own terms and foisting those onto the culture at large. The Rainbow Mafia simply made up the term “cisgender” to describe heterosexuals who don’t suffer from gender disorientation pathology. (And the left calls conservatives “anti-science”?) The term is now being recognized by a federal court, which is precisely the kind of judicial activism Hillary Clinton called for in the third presidential debate.

The Left’s scientifically unjustifiable and psychologically damaging promotion of gender dysphoria further erodes the basic rights and freedoms of all Americans. Celebrate them or else!
