Kentucky school to allow ‘transgender’ students access to opposite sex restrooms

    Christian News Network: Meanwhile, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) threatened to pursue legal action if the non-discrimination policy goes into effect. In a letter to the governing board members of Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS), ADF spokespersons argued that Atherton High School should not make restrooms available to both sexes.

    “Not only may JCPS prevent students from accessing opposite-sex restrooms and changing areas, JCPS should do so to avoid violating the rights of JCPS students and parents,” the letter states. “With respect to JCPS students, they have the right to bodily privacy.”

    “Permitting students to use opposite-sex restrooms and changing areas would seriously endanger student safety, undermine parental authority, and severely impair an environment conducive to learning,” the letter continues. “These dangers are so clear-cut that a school district allowing such activity would clearly expose itself—and its teachers—to tort liability.”
