Biology Based Restrooms constitute discrimination

No, sadly, this is not April 1st.  My emphasis in bold.

AUGUSTA, Maine – A lawyer for the Maine Human Rights Commission told members of the state board today that requiring all students to use “biology-based” restrooms and locker rooms in the state’s schools is illegal and cannot be allowed to continue.

“Schools cannot discriminate against sexual identity or gender identification. Schools therefore cannot segregate students based on sexual orientation and identity,” commission legal counsel John Gause said at today’s commission meeting, where he was unsuccessful in convincing the board to adopt immediately a set of recommendations.

The commission’s vote was 4-1 to hold a public hearing on the adoption of guidelines that would allow biological males to play on girls’ athletic teams[oh yeah, that’s fair] and use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms if they proclaim their gender identity is female [and how precisely, do they propose to keep the 99.98% non-confused population from claiming otherwise just for fun?].

Today’s public meeting was held before a capacity crowd in the main meeting room of the Senator Hotel in Augusta, Maine. The crowd was divided evenly between opponents and supporters of the proposed guidelines for students who have gender identity issues.

Read the rest if you have the stomach

There’s no shortage of lunacy on the other side of the pond either:

LONDON, March 1, 2010 ( – The iconic image of sweet little English school girls in their uniforms could become a thing of the past if the government follows the advice of its new “human rights commission.” Requiring skirts in school uniforms discriminates against school girls who want to be boys [I don’t mean to sound uncharitable (see post on Lent below) but I wasn’t aware this was a phenomenon that went into the single digit percentages], the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), said in a report this week.

“Gender-specific” clothes, the EHRC said in its 68-page report on the rights of “transsexuals” this week, could be discriminatory. “Pupils born female with gender dysphoria experienced great discomfort being forced to wear stereotypical girls’ clothes – for example a skirt,” the report said.

    My comment is in regards to the second part of your post. I hardly have the stomach to watch my daughter go to school in the winter with a uniform skirt on. The Requirement that girls wear Skirts as part of a catholic uniform code is archaic and a cruel form of punishment for being female. Girls uniform policies should include a pants offering, at the very least, in the fall and winter.

    It’s only the modern-day reduced length of the skirts that causes the problem. The uniform code should allow for skirts/dresses like the ones the girls wear in those Jane Austen movies ;)
