Apparently this easy-to-read sign does not apply to you if you are a boy who insists he is a girl. That doesn’t make you a girl. It just makes you a ninny.
So what have we learned since September 11, 2001?
Well, we’ve learned this.
Students walked out of Hillsboro High School, Missouri, recently to protest the school board’s decision to allow a 17-year-old boy to use the girls’ locker room because he says he is a girl ( http://www.worldmag.com/2015/09/missouri_students_protest_over_boy_allowed_in_girls_locker_room ). Three school board members have resigned in protest over that decision.
The school had even provided a special “gender-neutral” (ugh) locker room for this character, but that wasn’t good enough. Nope, he wants to use the girls’ locker room, with the girls in it, because he says he’s a girl, too.
Note this fact of elementary biology: Every cell in this boy’s body, no matter what he says, no matter what he does, remains unalterably male because it contains a Y-chromosome.
We have seen this pattern before. A whole townful of Christians loses its annual Christmas parade because a single atheist objects. You can’t bow your head and say grace in a public cafeteria because a single misanthrope might sue whoever owns the cafeteria. And so on.
Let’s try this. An enterprising lad named William says he is now a cat, not a boy, and therefore is no longer required to go to school. He has renamed himself Fluffy. “Meow,” he says.
Does that make him a cat? Or just an idiot?
So now a whole high school-ful of girls can’t get changed in privacy because some boy who says he’s a girl demands to use their locker room. And the majority of the school board knuckled under.
No wonder ISIS thinks they will inevitably conquer us.
