Ohio School Board Says No to Transgenders Using Whatever Bathroom They Want

By Published on December 12, 2017

An Ohio school board voted to reject a policy that would allow transgender students to use whatever bathroom or changing room facility they want rather than the room that agrees with a student’s biological sex.

The Lakota Local School Board shot down the proposed policy in a 3-2 vote late Monday night, according to Cincinnati.com.

“It’s poorly written policy, and it does not have legal support,” Board Member Todd Parnell said. “It’s a completely rushed and haphazard process coming up with this thing. We need to rewrite the thing and do it right.”

Some parents wanted the policy to pass, Cincinnati.com reported. “This is not going to go away,” said Linda Nix, the mother of a transgender student who graduated from the school. “It’s only going to compound. This should not be about politics, or about personal or religious beliefs. It’s about what is best for our district and for our students.”

 Nix urged the school board to vote “yes” on the policy.

The Lakota School District has more than 18,000 students, according to Cleveland.com.

Portland, Maine, public schools are also considering adopting new transgender policies requiring teachers to support the wishes of transgender students. Maryland schools also recently adopted progressive policies allowing students to use the bathrooms and locker rooms of their choice.

    Linda Nick’s is partially correct. It should not be about politics and it definitely should be about what’s best for the children. However it should be what’s best for all children not just a few. There is no benefit to the mental health of any child by allowing them to believe a lie. All children with the same body parts should share facilities. If you have a Male anatomy then use the facilities that correspond to that. If you have a female anatomy then use the facilities that correspond to that.
