Transgender Student in Evergreen’s Locker Room Draws Ire of Arizona Religious Group | Seattle Weekly

    Seattle Weekly: Evergreen officials say the school’s policy of allowing transgender individuals access to locker rooms based on their stated gender – in this case, Francis identifies as a female – is in accordance with state law . . . Despite this stance, the Alliance Defending Freedom is mad as hell. “Little girls should not be exposed to naked men, period. A college’s notions about ‘non-discrimination’ don’t change that,” says Senior Legal Counsel David Hacker in a press release distributed by the Alliance Defending Freedom, which says it is acting on behalf of parents concerned for their children’s safety . . . “The idea that the college and the local district attorney will not act to protect young girls is appalling,” Hacker continues in the Alliance Defending Freedom press release. “What Americans are seeing here is the poisoned fruit of so-called ‘non-discrimination’ laws and policies. Placing this man’s proclivities ahead of protecting little girls is beyond unacceptable.” . . . If the question comes down to bowing to the Alliance Defending Freedom and the organization’s claims of “emotional distress and harm” being inflicted on youth swimmers encountering transgender genitalia in the sauna, or protecting the civil rights of people like Colleen Francis, the Evergreen State College, predictably, sides with the civil rights and state law. “Frankly, the issue has been addressed,” Wettstein says of the installation of privacy screens.
