Obama's DOJ Forces Girl into Boys Locker Room

The Arcadia (California) Unified School District board accepted an anti-discrimination edict from President Obama's Department of Justice requiring the school to allow students to choose their gender at will, independent of any physical or mental health review, disregarding human biology, and thus choose their restroom and locker room usage.
“[Obama's Attorney General] Eric Holder needs to reread the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and find out that civil rights are based on an unchangeable, immutable characteristic. You cannot change your genes or your gender. You have chromosomes and they are either XX or XY.”
-- Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com

-- From "Arcadia School District Settles Transgender Student Complaint" posted at CBS Los Angeles 7/24/13

School board officials unanimously approved an agreement Tuesday night to take action to ensure the student, who was born female and whose gender identity is male, “will be treated like other male students while attending school in the district,” according to a statement by the U.S. Department of Justice.

The agreement, joined by the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, which participated in the investigation, resolves a complaint filed in October 2011.

The complaint alleged the district had prohibited the student from accessing facilities consistent with his [sic] male gender identity, including restrooms and locker rooms at school, as well as sex-specific overnight accommodations at a school-sponsored trip, because of his [sic] gender identity.

Prosecutors say the student – who was a seventh-grader at the time the complaint was filed – began a gender transition from female to male during his [sic] fifth-grade year in 2009-2010 while attending an elementary school in the AUSD.

The student, who has attended Arcadia schools since kindergarten and is now entering ninth grade, has identified as a boy from a young age, according to the agency. He [sic] began the transition to living as a male during fifth grade.

Under the agreement, the district will immediately take steps to treat the student like all other male students.

The district will also work with a consultant to create “a safe, nondiscriminatory learning environment for students who are transgender or do not conform to gender stereotypes,” according to a release.

The district will amend its policies to designate gender-based discrimination -- including discrimination based on a student’s gender identity, transgender status and nonconformity with gender stereotypes -- as a form of discrimination based on sex. Teachers will also undergo training on preventing gender-based discrimination.

From "Arcadia district reaches settlement in transgender rights case" by Sarah Favot, Pasadena Star-News 7/24/13

The school district, without admitting fault, agreed Tuesday to resolve the complaint filed in October 2011, by an unidentified student and the child's family, who were represented by the National Center for Lesbian Rights.

. . . The complaints further alleged the school district prevented the child from using boys restrooms and locker room facilities in sixth and seventh grade. The student was required to use a private restroom in the nurse's office.

The child's parents at first agreed to the arrangement, but over time the student became unhappy and felt it drew attention.

An investigation was launched under Title IX and IV, which prohibit gender-based discrimination.

From "DOJ ripped for making transgender restroom use new front in civil rights battle" by Michael Roppolo, FoxNews.com 7/27/13

“We are pleased with the collaborative agreement we have worked out with the Department of Justice," David Vannasdall, assistant superintendent of the Acadia Unified School District, told FoxNews.com. "We feel it is a reasonable agreement, and we feel it will allow school to move forward in its mission to support all students.”

But several conservative groups said the federal agency has no business getting involved in the issue as a civil rights matter, and in doing so, trampled on the rights of other students.

Andrea Lafferty, president of the Traditional Values Coalition, told FoxNews.com that the main issue is whether this decision will impact the rights and fairness for the majority of kids.

Lafferty rejected the idea that claiming a gender identity that runs counter to one's anatomy is a civil right on par with the struggle African-Americans and other groups went through.
