We believe that schools have a duty to protect the bodily privacy and dignity of all students. As such, no child should be forced to share showers, locker rooms, hotel rooms or other intimate settings with a member of the opposite biological sex. Without a doubt, many children would feel uncomfortable when they encounter a member of the opposite sex – particularly adults – in gendered facilities or when entering a shared hotel room as part of an overnight school activity. Science shows that children, particularly adolescents, can experience hypersensitive and traumatic reactions to these situations. It is abhorrent for schools to accommodate the especially harmful view that youth is an appropriate time to be encouraging, in some cases, irreversible “gender transitions”. It is clear that these proposed regulations infringe on my First Amendment rights as a parent to raise and care for my children.
