As it happens, I happen to know something about the town of Arcadia, CA and I can assure you that without these "protections" the young lady, who thinks she's a boy, would get straitened out real fast by her/his fellow students. But I ask, in all sincerity, is this law intended to get the young student's "minds right" about abnormal sexual fetishes the new frontier of "civil rights" as the NYTimes proclaims? Is that where we're heading? If so, what a colossal waist of time, money and good will. I have no problem with a young tomboy dressing up and wrestling with the guys, but I can't see how the State and the Federal DOJ can force my son to take a shower with her.
"Under the settlement agreement, the district will:
• work with a consultant to support and assist the district in creating a safe, nondiscriminatory learning environment for students who are transgender or do not conform to gender stereotypes;
• amend its policies and procedures to reflect that gender-based discrimination, including discrimination based on a student’s gender identity, transgender status, and nonconformity with gender stereotypes, is a form of discrimination based on sex; and
• train administrators and faculty on preventing gender-based discrimination and creating a nondiscriminatory school environment for transgender students."
