A male student at a Colorado High School who claims to be transgendered has caused controversy by harassing female students in the girls room, but will not face any discipline – this despite vocal protests from the girls’ parents.

‘The boy’s rights as a transgender trump their daughters’ privacy rights,’ the school has told concerned parents, according to CBN.

The Pacific Justice Institute sent the school a letter warning against suppressing their privacy rights. 

“We’re not going to stand by and let 99.7 percent of our students lose their privacy and free speech rights just because .3 percent of the population are gender-confused,” the PJI wrote.

PJI is demanding assurances from the school that privacy and expressive rights will be protected and any accommodations will not involve the girls giving up access to most of their restrooms, as has previously been suggested by the school.

  1. The Global Dispatch says:

    At this point the PJI are still moving forward, so the story remains.

    One of the links allegedly refutes this story by quoting one Christian student from the school. We don’t have enough information but would talk to the student for ourselves to validate her feelings, but this doesn’t 100% refute the allegations.

    Additionally, the Examiner is NOT the source of the news, the story is the lawsuit not the credibility of this writer.

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says:

      BUT, A LAWSUIT CAN INTENSIFY A PROBLEM. PARENTS – RIGHTLY OR WRONGLY – TRY TO TEACH THEIR CHILDREN ABOUT GENDER ROLES. SO, Global Dispatch, USING THE PHRASE, “to validate her feelings,” CREATES A VOLITILE CONFUSION FOR TEENAGERS BY REFERRING TO A BIOLOGICAL MALE AS, “her.” IN MEMPHIS A FEW YEARS AGO, A transgendered person WAS MURDERED BECAUSE OF THIS EXACT TYPE OF CONFUSION. HENCE, HUMAN NATURE WILL CAUSE Pacific Justice Institute TO BE CONTINUOUSLY INVOLVED IN LITIGATION.

      LEGALIZING SAME-SEX MARRIAGE FOR ADULTS IS ONE THING, BUT, United States Supreme Court NEEDS TO DETERMINE THAT MINORS DO NOT HAVE THE MATURITY TO MAKE THIS TYPE OF LIFE-ALTERING DECISION. THAT IS WHY WE HAVE JUVENILLE COURTS. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF GENETIC-/BIRTH-RELATED PROBLEMS, A NATIONAL LAW SHOULD STATE A PERSON MUST BE AT LEAST EIGHTEEN BEFORE GENDER-REASSIGNMENT AND BEFORE PUBLICLY ASSUMING THE OPPOSITE-GENDER PERSONA.

      The problem is you are reporting the harassment as a fact despite the dubiousness of the claim. What’s more, there is an interview with the superintendent where the accusations are dismissed. https://soundcloud.com/cristan-williams/fact-checking-trans-student#t=2:30

      You are not saying they allegedly harassed the girls or that PJI claims there was harassment, you wrote that the DID harass girls despitw no evidence of the harassment, no details of what the harassment was, and a credible source saying there was no harassment was verified by the school. At the least you’re being unethical and at worst you’re defaming a child by presenting unproven and clearly disputed accusations as facts.

    • Allie says:

      Actually, You don’t even know the NAMES of the accused or alleged victims. How can you post that as fact with no details or evidence. Keep in mind that you’re talking about a minor and you have just written an article which says they harassed underage girls in a bathroom without a quote from a victim, a conviction, knowledge of whether a charge has been filed, or evidence of any kind. I’m aware that it’s next to impossible to sue someone for libel in the US but until you have at least a single detail about the story, make no mistake that you ARE committing libel.

    It’s bogus. Some bigoted parent made it all up.

    Besides, PJI sued one school for teaching heliocentrism. That kind of quackery blows any and all credibility.

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says:

      “Jenn348” – IT MAY BE BOGUS, BUT, BIGOTRY CAN LEAD TO VIOLENCE. IT NEEDS TO BE CLEAR TO ALL WHAT CHILDREN CAN AND CAN NOT DO.

    […] see this happening. And of course the rights of the special outweigh the rights of everyone else. Transgender bathroom battle in Colorado high school rages on as boy harasses girls without penalty -… […]

    This story has been debunked:
    http://www.transadvocate.com/trans-student-attacking-girls-in-restroom-or-you-know-not.htm

    Even the Daily Mail took down their coverage after it came out that this story is a lie.

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says:

      WELL THEN, THIS IS THE TYPE OF STORY WHICH CAUSES THE PUBLIC TO BELIEVE MEDIA-OUTLETS “DO HAVE” A FINANCIAL CONNECTION TO LOBBYING GROUPS.

  5. CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says:

    AS A MALE HOMOSEXUAL, I CONSIDER transgenderism AND transvestism TO BE DISGUSTING.

    IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING ONLY AN EXTREMELY-SMALL PERCENTAGE OF THE WORLD’S POPULATION NEEDS SEXUAL-REASSIGNMENT SURGERY [AS, CHILDREN], DUE TO GENETIC ABNORMALITIES OF THE GENITALIA. SO, THE COLORADO HIGH-SCHOOL’S STATEMENT, “The boy’s rights as a transgender trump their daughters’ privacy rights … ,” IS A “NEW ONE” ON ME; I DID NOT KNOW LAWS PROTECT transgendered children [???]. IT SEEMS IT SHOULD BE “AGAINST” THE LAW FOR PARENTS TO ALLOW THEIR CHILDREN TO GO IN PUBLIC WEARING OPPOSITE-GENDER CLOTHING, DUE TO SOME mental defect.

    AS A MALE HOMOSEXUAL, IT SEEMS ODD THAT PEOPLE SEE GREAT DANGER WHEN IT COMES TO A BIOLOGICAL BOY IN A GIRLS’ ROOM; I TYPE THE BIGGER PROBLEM WOULD BE A BIOLOGICAL GIRL IN A BOYS’ ROOM. [A-L-L MALES believe a female is lesbian because she has not experienced the “fabulousness” of penile-vaginal coitus]. HENCE, A “GANG OF BOYS” RAPING ONE GIRL IS THE MORE DANGEROUS SCENARIO.

  6. Autumn says:

    This story is all based on a false report. There has been not “harassment” reported and this is simply one mother objecting to the school following the law and allowing children to access restrooms that correspond with their gender. From the principle of the school:
    “VENDETTI: Nothing has actually been verified with us. This is one parent basically bringing their viewpoint about this situation to the media because they weren’t getting the responses that they hoped they would get from the district, from parents of students at the high school, or from the board and myself. So I think it’s just an attempt to elevate the situation to a point where maybe some more attention can be drawn to that in the hope of having a different outcome. But to our knowledge and based on our investigation, none of those things have actually happened. We do have a transgender student at the high school and she has been using the women’s restroom. There has not been a situation.”
