Normally, when We the People give the side-eye to people who determine that they are not really what God made them in the womb and decide to be the opposite gender of their chromosomally assigned one, we hear about men claiming to be women, especially when the men want to use the women’s restroom.
In a case that has most of the straight world scratching heads, the Supreme Court of the United States – other than Justices Clarence Thomas and Sam Alito – refused to hear a case years in the making of a woman claiming to be a man wanting to use the men’s room.
Essentially, a lower court said that the high school that this woman attended had no call to force this woman into using the restroom in the nurse’s office and the lady’s restroom while she was in school.
“I am glad that my years-long fight to have my school see me for who I am is over,” Grimm said in a statement. “Being forced to use the nurse’s room, a private bathroom, and the girl’s room was humiliating for me, and having to go to out-of-the-way bathrooms severely interfered with my education. Trans youth deserve to use the bathroom in peace without being humiliated and stigmatized by their own school boards and elected officials.”
Last year, the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals rejected … arguments, saying the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause and Title IX protect transgender students from school bathroom policies that prohibit them from affirming their gender.
“The proudest moments of the federal judiciary have been when we affirm the burgeoning values of our bright youth, rather than preserve the prejudices of the past,” the appeals court panel wrote in its opinion. “How shallow a promise of equal protection that would not protect Grimm from the fantastical fears and unfounded prejudices of his adult community. It is time to move forward.”
Never mind everyone else in the equation.
