Illinois’ largest high school district is fighting against federal authorities in response to allowing a boy to use the girls locker facilities.
The student, who identifies as female, has been waging a fight to receive full access to the girls’ locker room.
The Illinois district denied the request citing privacy concerns of the other 12,000 students and offered a separate room where the student can change.
“At some point, we have to balance the privacy rights of 12,000 students with other particular,” said District 211 Superintendent Daniel Cates. “We believe this infringes on the privacy of all the students that we serve.”
The Student, represented by the ACLU, had filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education, calling the district’s stance “blatant discrimination”.
Federal officials responded that the school is in violation of the Title IX gender equality law.
The District remains adamant.
They set up a special non-gendered bathroom. Excellent solution as there is only one student involved among 12,000.
We will see what happens. The district and the state of Illinois needs to stand firm for it’s sovereignty.
The bathroom controversy is springing up all over the country. For the sake of a minute fraction of society, we are willing to put the privacy of the entire population of women off to the side.
In August 2013, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation that allowed public school students to use facilities like showers and bathrooms based on their gender identity.
Houston Texas is in a heated fight over the issue as well as we have previously reported.
After Houston Mayor Annise Parker was told by the Texas Supreme Court that her bathroom ordinance that allowed men to use women’s restrooms was unconstitutional, she was forced to put it on the ballot for November.
The court opinion stated, “The legislative power reserved to the people of Houston is not being honored!”
But Houston Mayor Annise Parker’s new Prop 1 is a hoax.
Annise Parkers Bathroom Proposition is being touted as and looks like some a general Equal Rights Ordinance.
It is critical for Texas that the Campaign for Houston defeat Houston’s Proposition 1, the Bathroom Ordinance, which would allow troubled men and sexual predators to enter women’s public accommodations, i.e., bathrooms, showers, locker rooms and dressing rooms, don’t you agree? We are waging a fight to protect traditional American family values and we need your help.
Campaign for Houston is made up of parents and family members who do not want their daughters, sisters or mothers forced to share restrooms in public facilities with men, who – under this ordinance – can call themselves “women” on a whim and use women’s restrooms whenever they wish.

Campaign for Houston has scheduled its first online Money Bomb for Thursday, October 15, 2015starting at 7 am and lasting for 24 hours.
We need 10,000 Families Standing for Houston to invest $100 each to keep our TV and radio commercials on the air, direct mail and implement our Get Out The Vote effort, in order to overcome the out-of-state groups, like the ACLU, which have already contributed over $500,000 to Houston Unites, the pro-homosexual political organization promoting Proposition 1.
Starting on Thursday, October 15, for 24 hours two anonymous donors have generously matched every investment made with Campaign for Houston dollar for dollar, up to $300,000. Please set your calendar to give as much as you can this Thursday, October 15th. We hope you can become one of the 10,000 Families Standing for Houston at $100 each, but every dollar you give – $3, $5 or $10 – will go a long way to helping us meet our goal.
