With tolerance comes the idea of what is or is not tolerable.

“What is intolerable, is an edict from on high, ordering every school district in the land, … to throw open facilities where young people are getting undressed with one another ….”

I don’t pretend to know everything about the issue, but what I understand is the trans-gender individual is “uncomfortable” using the facility that is consistent with his/her biology and so the edict has issued that failing to accommodate this “uncomfortableness” by permitting use of the facility consistent with gender-identity as opposed to biology is not only unconscionable but illegal. What I fail to understand is why the feelings of the biological girl or boy who has no gender identity confusion and who uses the facility consistent with her/his biology but is “uncomfortable” having a person of the opposite sex (regardless of gender identity) in the facility where she/he is undressing is not even a considered issue, let alone whether parents are “uncomfortable” about it. Why is the “uncomfortableness” of the trans-gender student given exclusive priority? Why is the “uncomfortableness” of the gender aligned users and their parents disregarded? Seems this is the tip of the tail wagging the dog.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
