Florida bans transgender women from school sports

  Florida bans transgender women from school sports Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Tuesday signed a law prohibiting transgender women and girls from competing in girls and women's sports at public schools in his southern US state. "We believe that is very important that the integrity of these competitions are preserved," said the Republican governor as he signed the measure into law at a Christian school in the northeastern city of Jacksonville. "In Florida, girls are going to play girls'"We believe that is very important that the integrity of these competitions are preserved," said the Republican governor as he signed the measure into law at a Christian school in the northeastern city of Jacksonville.

At Tuesday's school board meeting, Jolene Grover, who was wearing a shirt that read "Woman is female" argued: "Two years ago, I was told policy 1040 was just an umbrella philosophy and you weren't going to allow boys into the girls ' locker rooms . But here you are doing just that." Grover is an eighth grader whose mom pulled her out of an LCPS school last year after seeing various controversial policies emerging.

School board Voted to Allow Boys in Girls Changing Rooms . IL School District Forces Females to Share Locker Room with Biological Males Who Identify as ' Girls In 2017, the Palantine High School student filed a lawsuit for discrimination because he was not allowed access inside the girl 's locker room , The Daily Herald reports. Last week, the district voted 5-2 to adopt a new policy where "students shall be treated and supported in a manner consistent with their gender identity, which shall include students having access to restrooms and locker rooms that correspond to their gender

A 14-year-old in Virginia is speaking out about what she says is a sexist move by Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) to allow "boys into girls' locker rooms."

The policy followed a previous one, 1040, that committed the county to providing an equitable, safe and inclusive working environment regardless of "sexual orientation, gender identity" and other individual characteristics. The more recent proposed policy – 8350 – states in a draft that "students should be allowed to use the facility that corresponds to their gender identity."

At Tuesday's school board meeting, Jolene Grover, who was wearing a shirt that read "Woman is female" argued: "Two years ago, I was told policy 1040 was just an umbrella philosophy and you weren't going to allow boys into the girls' locker rooms. But here you are doing just that."

What Facebook’s two-year Trump ban does and doesn’t do

  What Facebook’s two-year Trump ban does and doesn’t do The social network says the former president will receive a two-year ban following his actions surrounding January 6.Donald Trump’s Facebook ban will last at least two years, the company announced on Friday. Facebook said that the former president’s actions on January 6, which contributed to a violent mob storming Capitol Hill and staging an insurrection that led to five deaths, “constituted a severe violation of our rules,” and that it was enacting this policy change as part of a new approach to public figures during civil unrest.

A Pennsylvania student said Thursday that her school opening its locker rooms , showers and restrooms to students of the opposite sex is unfair and wrong. “There are good ways to make room for everyone, without letting a boy into the girls ’ locker rooms , shower areas, or restrooms,” said Alexis Lightcap, a senior at Boyertown Area Senior High School in Boyertown, Pennsylvania, who is also in a lawsuit against Boyertown Area School District, at a press conference. It is common sense that boys shouldn’t be in girls ’ locker rooms , restrooms, and shower areas.

"A school board in IL voted in favor of allowing biological boys into the girls ' locker room saying they should be 'supported in a manner consistent w/their gender identity,'" he said. The tweet linked to an article from conservative news outlet The Daily Wire, which called the decision "simply evil." Superintendent Dan Cates dismissed these fears before the board voted on the issue. He cited the district's policy that a student, along with their parent or guardian, must request that their gender to be changed in all school records. The gender on record with the school dictates which gender-specific

"Everyone knows what a boy is – even you," she added, looking up at the board members. "Your proposed policies are dangerous and rooted in sexism. When woke kids ask me if I was a lesbian or a trans boy because I cut my hair short, it should tell you these modern identities are superficial."

In an interview with Fox News Thursday, Grover said she worried that LCPS' new rule would lead to girls being harassed and assaulted.

During her speech, she claimed that her guidance counselor responded to her concerns about privacy and safety by noting that the bathrooms had stalls. Fox News hasn't confirmed this and LCPS declined to comment on Grover's speech.

How NSW hung this Origin hero out to dry

  How NSW hung this Origin hero out to dry Brett Finch, who went from schooners to State of Origin in 24 hours, will always remember the sound. "I could've kicked it from f--king Moore Park, I hit it that well," he told Wide World of Sports of his famous 2006 field goal, which won NSW that year's series opener."I was pretty confident when the ball was coming to me and when I hit it, I knew I'd struck it well. It's like when you hear a six at the cricket, just that middle of the bat."I knew just with the sound of it. It's one thing with pressure, you don't even think; 'It's close to 40 [metres out], I'm just making sure I get the distance'.

The school granted the student access to the girls locker room , but required that he change clothes behind curtains. In March, a Pennsylvania federal court ruled that the University of Pittsburgh did not violate the U.S. Constitution or Title IX when it barred a female student, who identified as male, from using men's locker rooms and bathrooms. Similarly, in September, a federal court in Virginia dismissed a discrimination claim by a female-to-male transgender student who sought access to the male bathrooms at a public high school .

Likewise for girls who insist they're boys . Andrew Beckwith, attorney for Massachusetts Family Institute, however, warns that the document's definition of transgender "is extremely broad." "If a male student tells his teacher he feels like a girl on the inside, the school has to treat him in every way as if he "Each situation needs to be reviewed and addressed based on the particular circumstances of the student and the school facilities," the education policy states. "[Yet] in all cases, the principal should be clear with the student (and parent) that the student may access the restroom, locker room and

"Now, boys are reading erotica in the classroom next to girls," she added during Tuesday's speech, "and you want to give them access to girls' locker rooms and you want to force girls to call those boys 'she.'"

"You do this in the name of inclusivity while ignoring the girls who will pay the price. Your policies choose boys' wants over girls' needs."

Grover's comments were just one of many related to gender as participants responded to the ongoing controversy surrounding Tanner Cross. Cross was suspended last month after giving a now-viral speech in which he opposed the district's proposed policies on gender.

He told the school board he wouldn't "affirm that a biological boy can be a girl and vice versa because it's against my religion. It's lying to a child, it's abuse to a child, and it's sinning against our God."

An Illinois school district has voted to allow biological males into the female locker room as a way to support transgender students. Nova Maday is a biological male who identifies as a transgender. In 2017, the Palantine High School student filed a lawsuit for discrimination because he was not allowed access inside the girl 's locker room , The Daily Herald reports. Remarkable video. First the cross dressing boy gloating that he gets access to girls locker rooms , and then the girl in tears and terrified now that she has to change around boys . You really are just evil if you support this.

Just days after that speech, Cross was told in a letter not to come on the school's premises. The letter vaguely stated the school district was investigating "allegations that you engaged in conduct that has had a disruptive impact on the operations" of his school. A judge ordered LCPS on Tuesday to reinstate Cross, arguing it violated his right to free speech.

Cross had referred to draft policy 8040, which required Loudoun staff to use preferred pronouns.

"LCPS staff shall allow gender-expansive or transgender students to use their chosen name and gender pronouns that reflect their gender identity without any substantiating evidence, regardless of the name and gender recorded in the student’s permanent educational record," it read.

"School staff shall, at the request of a student or parent/legal guardian, when using a name or pronoun to address the student, use the name and pronoun that correspond to their gender identity. The use of gender-neutral pronouns are appropriate. Inadvertent slips in the use of names or pronouns may occur; however, staff or students who intentionally and persistently refuse to respect a student’s gender identity by using the wrong name and gender pronoun are in violation of this policy."

Virginia school board meeting explodes as members face backlash for suspension of Tanner Cross

  Virginia school board meeting explodes as members face backlash for suspension of Tanner Cross Loudoun County teacher Tanner Cross saw an outpouring of support Tuesday as irate parents and educators blasted the school system's decision to suspend him after his comments about gender.The dramatic meeting of the Loudon County Public Schools' board was full of mic- drop moments and testy confrontations over issues plaguing the school district. Many public commenters either backed Cross or criticized the school board over critical race theory (CRT).

Others at the meeting suggested LCPS' policies were righteous pursuits or love and inclusion.

Wearing a rainbow pin and mask, state Sen. Jennifer Boysko told the board: "I want to thank you for your commitment to equality and making sure every child feels loved and valued." Another remote speaker argued policies like 8040 weren't new and would make "trans and gender-expansive kids feel a little more welcome."

Some women and girls, though, have started questioning the cost of such policies.

The issue has become especially pertinent in women's athletics. Fox News reported last week on how five-time national track champion Shannon Arena argued "transgender athletes will diminish opportunities for biological women."

"It’s not equality because when you’re competing against a biological male, it’s not an equal playing field – even if they are on hormones," she told Fox News.

Groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) have defended the more inclusive policies in athletics and school facilities. In 2016, the ACLU's James Esseks penned a blog post titled "Anti-Trans Bathroom Bills Have Nothing to Do With Privacy and Everything To Do With Fear and Hatred."

"As a threshold matter, no one is proposing letting boys into girls’ bathrooms," said Esseks. "Preying on misinformation about transgender people and calling trans girls boys, advocates for these harmful measures decry the fictitious end of sex-segregated spaces altogether."

"But even beyond the absurd distortions peddled in state legislatures across the country, these purported privacy justifications for unconstitutional government discrimination aren’t remotely persuasive. It does not infringe anyone else’s rights to share public space with those who are different."
