In the 1970s, advocates of the Equal Rights Amendment famously said, "It's not going to lead to gay marriage." That was then. This is now.
For all you parents and grandparents, etc., who have or know a liberal high school girl who it all for transgender rights, you might want to tell them this story about what transgendered youth think of their rights - and what an all powerful state thinks of their and their parents' rights.
Today I received a letter from the Pacific Justice Institute concerning Florence (Colorado) High School where the administration is allowing a biological boy who thinks he is a girl to use the girl's locker room and toilets. This story is also confirmed after an internet search on "Florence Colorado High School Transgender." You will a find confirming article at
And you will find this story excerpted below:
Female students at Florence High School in Colorado have claimed that they were harassed by a transgender male student, who thanks to Colorado's anti-discrimination stance against "transgendered" students, has access to female facilities. But the story gets even more twisted because the girls were threatened with hate crime charges if they spoke up. Leftist outlets have tried to debunk the story as nothing but Christian "transphobia." This in itself proves the story is true.

So how many teenage girls - and their parents, even if they voted for Obama - are looking forward to having a naked boy in their high school locker room as they dress and undress? I bet not too many.
The letter I got from the Pacific Justice Institute goes on to say:
Last fall, parents at Florence High School were horrified to hear that the school was allowing a boy to use the girls' bathrooms and locker rooms. Then, when they were erroneously told by administrators that the transgender student's rights trumped the privacy rights of their daughters, their concern turned to shocking disbelief.
...And, to make matters worse, threats were hurled toward our clients' girls simply because they voiced concerns about having their privacy outrageously violated.
Specifically, there were threats by the athletic department against some of the girls' continued participation in school sports after they asserted their rights not to undress in front of this boy. Even more troubling was the Superintendent's warning that the complaining families are now subject to having their social media monitored by the police!
...We recognize that there are those who sincerely struggle with identifying with their natural gender - and we're sympathetic to their psychological challenges - but it doesn't change the fact of their biological sex.
The letter goes on to say the organization is fighting this violation of the girl's privacy (for any liberals reading this, let me clarify my language: this violation of the XX chromosome born female girls' privacy). And then goes on to state that this is a spreading trend in various school systems across the U.S. They are talking about everywhere, not just Los Angeles or Denver or other big cities.
But as some liberal who isn't familiar with this and other similar cases might say, it's not as if there will be boys undressing in the girls' locker room. And they would be wrong, lost in their delusions of a utopian and/or infantile nature. I wonder how many of the school administrators at Florence High School send their daughters to public schools in general and this public school in particular. And what might occur if a psychologically transgendered girl thought that it was alright to undress in the boys' locker room? Although I suspect one day of trying that would disabuse her of that utopian fantasy.
This society is trying very hard to self-destruct. And a lot of overeducated people with no emotional connection to high school students, common decency or Judeo-Christian morality are incapable of assuming the responsibility of acting "in loco parentis" (in place of parents to protect the high school children as a parent would). I suspect the progressives may now want to remove "in loco parentis" laws from the books. You think I'm being alarmist?
When one takes into account what has happened in Florence, Colorado and in California, I'd say I'm being realistic. Pamela Geller recently posted a story at Atlas Shrugs about "psychologically transgendered" males now allowed into, among other places, New York University women's bathrooms. http://pamelageller.com/2014/02/pamela-geller-wnd-institutionalized...
And how exactly does one distinguish a psychologically transgendered male from an ordinary male with no morals who wants access to the ladies' room? Do we post a psychologist at the door to interview him as he struggles to hold his waste products inside? This is madness.
Two years ago I was in a writing class which had a feminist woman student whom I got into a discussion with before the third class began. I mentioned the then famous case to her about the Girl Scout troop that was ordered to take in a boy who thought he was a girl - and take him camping overnight in the country. The local Den Mothers, two religious women, resigned rather than comply (I think they would have been in violation of state law and/or could be sued civilly). I thought I would catch the leftist in a quandary but she just sat their unmoved. I asked her if she had a little girl and must have hit a raw nerve. She replied angrily "No" and then defensively asked me if I had one. I replied that I didn't either but I still thought (for the common good) that little girls should be protected from this. That is what these sicko leftists are: feminists who won't protect girls - and, of course, won't protect boys.
The Barbarians are at the gate - at the INSIDE of the gate. And we had best fight hard for our children's present as well as future.
