Boy, OKd in Girls Restrooms, Harasses Schoolgirls

A sexually confused male student at Florence (Colorado) High School, who has been approved by the administration to use the girls restrooms, is accused of sexual harassment of many female students while using the formerly private facilities, according to attorneys representing the girls' parents. While Florence-Penrose School District Superintendent Rhonda Vendetti has been advised by legal counsel not to comment, the liberal media have been quick to defend the "transgender student" and praise the school for trumpeting "transgender rights" over other students' rights.

It has been alleged that the accused boy uses both boys and girls restrooms at his whim, and that the school doesn't insist that he adhere to a single, consistent "gender identity.

Florence-Penrose School District Superintendent Rhonda Vendetti said the district was advised by lawyers not to comment about the specifics of the case because it is under investigation by law enforcement. However, she did release a comment Tuesday to the Daily Record.

"We are committed to providing a fair and equal education to all students at Florence High School," she said.

In 2008, the Colorado General Assembly passed a bill barring discrimination based on sexual orientation, including transgender status. The Colorado Association of School Boards, the Colorado Association of School Executives, the Colorado Education Association and One Colorado worked together to create "Guidance for Educators Working With Transgender and Gender Noncomforming Students" to offer practical guidance to school districts, educators and communities.

From "No Recourse for Girls Harassed by Transgender Student" posted at 10/13/13

. . . When parents complained [about the boy harassing their daughters], school officials said the boy's rights as a transgender trumped their daughters' privacy rights.

As the controversy grew, some students were threatened with being kicked off athletic teams or charged with hate crimes if they continued to voice concerns.

The Pacific Justice Institute sent the school a letter warning against squelching privacy rights.

PJI is demanding assurances from the school that privacy and expressive rights will be protected and any accommodations will not involve the girls giving up access to most of their restrooms, as has previously been suggested by the school.

The Pacific Justice Institute took up the girls’ cause, sending a strongly worded letter to school officials in an effort to protect students’ privacy and speech rights. “This is a nightmare scenario for the teenage girls—some of them freshmen—and their parents at this school,” wrote the PJI in a press release. “This is exactly the kind of horror story we have been warning would accompany the push for radical transgender rights in schools, and it is the type of situation that LGBT activists have been insisting would not happen.”

Some news outlets have been reporting that this story is false, prompting multiple retractions and larger controversy. . . . The Pacific Justice Institute stands by its accusations . . .

In the interview [Supt.] Vendetti gave, she said “nothing has actually been verified with [the school]. This is one parent basically bringing their viewpoint about this situation to the media because they weren’t getting the responses that they hoped they would get from the district, from parents of students at the high school, or from the board and myself. . . . We do have a transgender student at the high school and she [sic] has been using the women’s restroom. . . . There has not been an incident of harassment or anything that would cause any additional concern,” beyond the male student’s using the women’s restroom, she said.

“Details continue to emerge on this in terms of what what kind of comments may have been made. We’ve heard some reports that he’s commented on what girls are wearing or their figure while in the bathroom. If you can imagine that scenario from the reference and framework of a teenage girl, I think that’s pretty harassing,” said [PJI staff attorney Matthew] McReynolds, who reiterated that a boy simply being in the girls’ restroom is ample harassment in itself.

But McReynolds said the goal of the transgender activists is very clear: “They would insist that every school district in America is subject to these same kinds of situations and scenarios because of the way that they would interpret federal laws like Title IX and just general definitions of gender.

“If there were nothing to this, I don’t think the school district would be currently conducting a law enforcement investigation, which is what they’re doing,” he said. “Beyond that, you’ve got to ask yourself, when you have somebody who is acting very peculiarly to say the least, sometimes dressing as a girl and sometimes dressing as a boy, why are we indulging that and making everybody else pretend like that is normal, when clearly it’s not?”
