As happened in California, another state has fallen victim to a Supreme Court ruling allowing children to ultimately choose whichever bathroom they want to use. This time, Maine has ruled that not allowing transgender children to use whichever bathroom they feel most comfortable in regardless of their anatomy is discrimination.
The court has been at this ruling since 2009 when a much younger student—who is now a teenager—felt wronged for not being allowed in the girls restroom. Despite the uncomfort this boy and his parents were spreading around the school as fellow parents felt as though the privacy and safety of their own children was being compromised, they took it to court anyways.
Some five years later, the Supreme Court finally got around to ruling the boy or girl or whatever it was, the right to use whichever bathroom they wanted.
The official decision read:
“Our opinion must not be read to require schools to permit students casual access to any bathroom of their choice. Decisions about how to address students’ legitimate gender identity issues are not to be taken lightly. Where, as here, it has been clearly established that a student’s psychological well-being and educational success depend upon being permitted to use the communal bathroom consistent with her gender identity, denying access to the appropriate bathroom constitutes sexual orientation discrimination.”
The state—in league with so many others—has had a longstanding law stating that students were to use the bathroom that was suitable for them according to their anatomy. And why shouldn’t it remain that way? After all, a transgender “girl” still has a penis and was born a male despite their wishful thinking that they were born the opposite gender.
How happy would you be if your daughter was in the next stall of a boy just because he felt like she was a girl? Think about the abuse of the law that is sure to come from pranksters and perverts. What’s stopping a boy from convincing people that he wishes he was a girl just so he could be a peeping tom?
Take for example this video:
Of course the LGBT(Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) community thinks otherwise and are praising the ruling. Director of GLAD (Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders), Jennifer Levi, shared, “A transgender girl is a girl and must be treated as such in all respects, including using the girls’ restroom.”
Funny that the only thing dictating your gender are physical features and seeing how this “girl” was born with the physical features of a male, it’s hard to argue otherwise. But instead, in the name of tolerance and non-discrimination, a boy is now allowed to use the same restroom as female students.
The ruling came down to an almost unanimous decision of 5-1 despite the several former rulings against the practice.
What do you think of this—what would you do if your daughter came home and explained she had to share a bathroom with a boy? Let us know in a comment below!
