So 14 pages in and no one thought to fact check a WND article? That is kinda shameful, since the whole shower issue is bogus and entirely untrue.
Here is the actual policy: "Controversial" MSHSL Draft Transgender Policy Really Shouldn't Be - Page 3 | City Pages
Notice that it is only about what students can participate in which sports. No mention is made of showers, or locker rooms, or anything else of that nature. So any trans athlete on a team that has students of the other biological gender will probably be treated like this student: Homecoming queen Mary Kate Smith also stars on her high school's football team - News - TODAY.com. Yes, girls have made the football team with shocking frequency, with one or more stories like this every single year. Shockingly, they somehow manage to figure out how to let them shower in privacy.
Furthermore, as should be ****ing obvious if any one actually thought about it, it is not quite so easy as just declaring yourself trans to be accepted as such:
Yeah, that whole idiotic notion of boys just declaring themselves trans so they can ogle girls, well, it is an idiotic notion. I knew better even before I fact checked(which took all of 30 seconds to do). Why is it that the very mention of trans people and every one just throws out any common sense and reacts emotionally? And why do people not bother to check stories from sites that are usually dishonest like WND, or for outrageous stories(which are almost always a case of being overblown)? I am really embarrassed at the gullability of some in this thread.
Wait. You don't think that teenage boys will do idiotic and ridiculous things in order to see naked teenage girls?
...were.... were you ever a teenage boy?
We actually had something sort of similar happen in my high school. a male dancer in our dance program said he was gay, which we all pretty much believed because, hey, male ballet dancer. So he changed with the girls (I wasn't in dance, I was in theater, and we did a lot of stuff together). Then, a couple of years into it, we find out he's "actually" bi - so he was enjoying the naked ladies the whole time. Then he shows up to senior prom with some smoking older redhead none of us had ever seen before ( ) . Still officially bi the last I heard. Some of the girls felt kind of lied to and violated, but nobody wanted to seem insensitive, so no fuss was really made beyond some sort of behind-the-back talk.
