Government Says Boys Free to Use Girls Locker Room

The Massachusetts Department of Education just issued directives that any boy who says that he thinks he's a girl may freely use the girls bathroom/locker room facilities in any school building.  The boy need not have any formal designation or even be wearing girl's clothing -- he just needs to say "I feel like a girl today."
“School personnel may be forbidden from informing the parents of their child’s gender decisions, and students can even decide to be one gender at home and another at school.”

The guidance was issued at the request of state board of education to help schools follow the state's 2011 anti-discrimination law protecting transgender people.

"These students, because of widespread misunderstanding and lack of knowledge about their lives, are at a higher risk for peer ostracism, victimization, and bullying," the document read.

The document said whether a student identifies as a boy or girl is up to the student or, in the case of younger students, the parents.

In all cases, "the student may access the restroom, locker room, and changing facility that corresponds to the student's gender identity," it said.

The guidance said some students may feel uncomfortable sharing those facilities with a transgender student but this "discomfort is not a reason to deny access to the transgender student."

Kris Mineau, president of the Massachusetts Family Institute, however, says there’s something far more significant than “discomfort” at stake.

“The School Commissioner’s first duty is to protect all students, from kindergarten to grade 12, not endanger them,” Mineau said in a statement. “The overriding issue with this new policy is that opening girls’ bathrooms to boys is an invasion of privacy and a threat to all students’ safety.”

Furthermore, the policy document explains, neither doctor’s note nor hormone therapy nor even parental permission is needed for a student to switch sex: If a boy says he’s a girl, as far as the schools should be concerned, he’s a girl.

“The responsibility for determining a student’s gender identity rests with the student,” the statement reads. “A school should accept a student’s assertion of his or her gender identity when there is … ‘evidence that the gender-related identity is sincerely held as part of a person’s core identity.’”
