Transgender Student in Women's Locker Room Raises Uproar

Nov 4, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: KSFO AM 560

The decision to allow a transgender 45-year-old college student who identifies as a woman but has male genitalia to use the women's locker room has raised a fracas among parents and faith-based organizations, who say children as young as 6 years old use the locker room.

"Faith based" is just a mask term for bigot.

And so the division of humans by sexed bodies continues...
Whilst being T I do however understand the concerns as raised...particularly whence in transition and, ahem, still in possession of convex genitalia...
At this point of my transition I only change - for whatever reasons or at any place in private cubicles or spaces...full stop.
Tucking does stop any male bits being on show...
I am myself all for equal rights but sensitivities to others concerns is paramount...I feel the individual involved is not entirely doing any favours to trans people but there have been private spaces allocated as reported earlier?

There is no place for anyone with male genitalia in a woman's locker room and showing 'her' stuff. Sorry... anatomy out ways the mindset of the individual. At least this individual could have done was to cover-up...Evergreen State is wrong on this issue.

"Weighs" not "ways," also you are so ignorant of anatomy that you probably don't even know what the opposite gender even looks like under the garments that protect us from the elements.

I agree there shouldn't be any nudity in a locker room. How disgusting! lol IT's a trans woman, There are people that are different. The real question is why were these kids not supervised in a adult college locker room? The trans student had every right to be there. It's not like she went to a middle school locker room and paraded around naked. IF she acted inappropriately then she would have been arrested! People make it sound like she was praying on children. There are swim team member that say they never had a problem with her being there and don't back up the allegations. So there are two sides to this story and somewhere in the middle is the truth. If for some reason she or anybody else for that matter was acting or behaving in a disgusting manner then they should have to face the justice system!

Middle school and under were present in the locker room. And it's not like this 'woman' is 20 or 22 but is actually older. This college's platform for inclusion is wrong and dangerous. It's open to anyone, even the dangerous, from taking advantage of it. Little girls, ages 6 and up, don't need to see the baggage of a 40 year old, who believes he is a she.

I thought idiots like you only believed that homosexuals were pedophiles. Seems that argument is only made when it suits you, huh? What about all the lesbians in there? There is a rather large lesbian population in Washington, most of my acquaintances are lesbians.

Lesbians are not the issue but thanks for trying. I have to ask why should a six year old see a male, who believes he/she is a female, private parts? The idiot is you and those that can't understand the problem. Just cover up if you don't mix with the others.

BTW...you are a disturbed, and may need mental health related treatment, if you believe that a 40 year old male, believing he is a female, is OK to show his private parts to 6 year old females.

Well, no, the idiot is you for reading the article and running with it. The problem isn't them, the problem is bigots who brainwash their children into thinking that there's something wrong with everyone's bodies.

Of course, back to the "article." This is what we call the slippery slope fallacy, and it's used quite often by bigots who are too stupid to look at the facts and make a non-biased opinion on a matter. You want there to be a problem so you can excuse attacking someone, that's all.

You are quite amusing... first of all this story (is getting so old by the way)is a perfect example of how morons like to take a small issue and turn it into a giant fabrication. It isn't that SHE (because that what SHE is)didn't do anything to these kids. The kids were in an adult locker room at a college unsupervised! A collage that Colleen was a member of. So to tell me that she somehow did something to these kids now is completely stupid. Do I think it's wrong that they might have seen her naked. Well it is a locker room and people do undress in a locker room. But to somehow suggest that she is guilty of being a pedifile. No there is no evidence to suggest that. Maybe a bit of poor judgment on boths sides here. Maybe she should have taken a little more time to make sure she was appropriately covered and maybe the people supervising these kids should have done their job and actually supervised these Kids!

So by your suggestion if she was 20 and did this it would have been ok? I didn't see anywhere in any of the article's or the police report that she tried to take advantage of anybody. I see where it is so easy for you to think that anybody that is transgender is a freak in your mind. The thing is that you and your narrow minded views of gender are not the final say so. People come in all variations of gender and it is now becoming understood and accepted. People are different and we all are gonna have to find a way to co-exist. I feel sorry for you and that you are having a hard time understanding things that you have never had to deal with before. I hope that one day you do in fact find the understanding. Bigotry and hate are very destructive and it's a shame that someone has to live their lives with that fear and intolerance.

That's Evergreen State College. I have a young child and if my child was ever exposed to somebody like this I'd break his (her) knee caps with a baseball bat and my wife would "cut it off". At least that's what she said she'd do anyways.Evergreen is a complete and utter dump and should be closed down. It's amazing how many people nowadays just have no morals whatsoever..why? Probably because their OWN lives are so f@cked up they don't care anymore I guess. Parents should ESCORT their daughters t the locker rooms now and arm themselves from weirdo's like this!

You have to wonder how this will impact the Evergreen Swim Team since they rely on membership and getting new swimmers usually coming out of swim lessons. Many parents will simply join another team and not put up with this thus membership will drop and the $$$ won't be coming in. I'm sure many parents there are ot aware of this issue and Evergreen most likely will try and "sweep" it under the rug lke it's no big deal but it is to many parents. I'm pretty sure if the Evergreen swim team see's a drop in membership and word gets around about this particular rule and regulation they may thnk twice because it will be a matter of survival for that college's pool. Other high schools should protest this and not use the pool and not finance these guys maybe that will have an impact I dunno. Everything comes down to the almighty dollar and if the Evergreen pool starts to suffer because of this I doubt they will be willing to lose all that money on the basis of one individual.

You should move back to the state you came from, because you clearly don't know Seattle well.

English, we speak it in Seattle, matter of fact it's been the primary language in western Washington since I can remember while growing up here. Please learn to at least Google.

Mothers since the dawn of time have always had the maternal instinct to "protect" their offspring from danger so why are all you liberals so shocked? Because you liberals have no clue as to what it takes to raise a descent family with morals and values? You want your childrn to live like 60's generation hippie's smoking weed and living life like you would on some nudist colony? Any "smart" parent would be aware of what's being allowed at this pool and do whatever it takes to protect their kids.

The real concern about this enire story is this..

How hard would it be for some perverted middle aged "creep" to just "claim" he was trans-gender to gain access to the girls locker room to scope out young girls or worse yet one "particuar" individual. Allowing this kind of thing opens too many possible doors and violates the safety of too many very young children. Evergreen should be held accountable and action taken by a higher power to make sure they do not continue to allow this. This school has been running wild with their twisted philosophies for too long getting away with cr@p and it's high time the state or government puts a stop it period.

If you can tell me how you are going to stop people who CLAIM they are trans-gender when they might possibly not be so they can get inside the girls locker room

I'd like to know how.
