[Ed. – Brave new world]
Some days, life gets confusing.
The Supreme Court Of The United States earlier today left in place a lower court ruling allowing a school district in Pennsylvania that allows transgender students to use bathrooms that match their gender identity.
They don’t make enough Advil for these type of days.
According to …
Tuesday’s ruling was issued without comment.
In court papers, lawyers for the plaintiffs argue that “forcing a teenager to share a locker room or restroom with a member of the opposite sex can cause embarrassment and distress.”
“The district’s policy was a drastic change from the way locker rooms and restrooms have been regulated for the entire history of public-school systems,” they said.
Lawyers for the school district say that they made the decision to allow transgender students to use facilities that aligned with their gender identity because the district “Believes that transgender students should have the right to use school bathroom and locker facilities on the same basis as non-transgender students.”
