Obama Demands Communal Nudity—Illinois School Balks

President Obama has personally championed every deviant aspect of the Gay Agenda, even sexually-confused transgenderism, and has utilized every power lever of the federal government to fundamentally transform America.  However, Illinois' largest high school district (in suburban Chicago) is now risking a punishing loss of federal funding for rejecting a federal order that forces a boy into the girls shower, even though the liberal-minded school administration has already allowed the boy free access to the girls toilet facilities.
"For all of us, our [gender] identity is who we are.  This identity, though their body doesn't match, their identity is that of the other gender. And we fully, fully support that and acknowledge that. [But] At some point, we have to balance the privacy rights of 12,000 students with other particular, individual needs of another group of students. Our principles that we stand on are the ones that define who we are."
-- Superintendent Daniel E. Cates, Palatine District 211

"At the end of the day, regardless of money, our job is to balance everybody's needs. The whole board is on board for this. We're at a consensus. I don't see anyone not willing to go through the next step of the process."
-- Peter Dombrowski, District 211 Board of Education

Palatine-based Township High School District 211 held a news conference Monday to announce that it has denied the student's request, citing privacy issues for other students. Officials said the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights ruled that the district was violating federal gender equality laws.

Superintendent Daniel E. Cates said the district supports transgender students but its decision was about "protecting student privacy."

The American Civil Liberties Union is representing the unidentified student. It called the district's policy "blatant discrimination." The student's family filed the federal complaint in spring 2014 after the district offered use of a private locker room space.

The Office Of Civil Rights calls it discrimination but Superintendent Dan Cates says allowing unrestricted access would be compromising other students’ privacy.

“What they are asking us to do is to have opposite sex students in the same open area of the locker room and shower and that we do not do,” he said. “This is about simply protecting student privacy.”

Cates says they’ve given the student a separate changing room like they do at all five of its high schools.

. . . The [male] student, who identifies as female, is asking that she [he] receive full access to the girls' locker room.

School officials and board of education members worked for months in hopes of finding an acceptable compromise, [Supt.] Cates said. The proposed solution, which Cates said was "quickly squelched," required the transgender student to change and shower in private.

Transgender students also are given the option to use the locker room of the sex from which they transitioned, a district spokesman said.

If the district cannot reach a compromise with federal officials, it risks losing some of the $6 million it receives in federal funding. Cates also acknowledged that litigation is a likely outcome.

A federal mandate from the Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights states that under Title IX requirements, transgender students should have full access to sex-specific locker rooms.

Instead, District 211 says it will provide the student with a private area to change "to protect the privacy rights of all students when changing clothes or showering before or after physical education and after-school activities, while also providing accommodations necessary to meet the unique needs of individual students," according to a statement issued by the district Monday.

School board President Mucia Burke said the decision not to obey the federal mandate was reached collectively by the board and district administration.

Burke said District 211 has been complying with all federal directives concerning transgender students except unrestricted access to locker rooms. Transgender students in District 211 can change their name, use the bathroom of the gender with which they identify, as there are private stalls, and participate in sex-identified sports teams according to IHSA policy.

A transgender student is [a] student who consistently and uniformly asserts a gender identity different from the student's assigned sex, or for which there is documented legal or medical evidence that the gender identity is sincerely held as part of the student's core identity, according to the district's statement.
