Neither the school district or school informed parents that it permitted students of one sex to use the locker rooms and bathrooms of students of the opposite sex.
The male student who complained was offered “reasonable and appropriate alternatives“. The boy’s parents did not accept the alternatives.
In an unbelievable invasion of privacy, a Pennsylvania school district told a teenage boy that if a teenage girl is in the locker room with him, he should “tolerate” undressing in front of her and make it as “natural” as possible.
The boy, represented by Alliance Defending Freedom and Independence Law Center (ILC), is filing suit against the Boyertown Area School District, its superintendent, and the principal and assistant principal of Boyertown Area High School, accusing them of shaming him, violating his personal privacy, and sexually harassing him.
At the end of October 2016, the lawsuit alleges, the boy began changing in the locker room for physical education class. He was standing in his underwear about to put on his gym clothes when he realized there was a member of the opposite sex changing with him in the locker room, only wearing shorts and a bra.
The boy and several classmates reported the incident to the assistant principal, Dr. E. Wayne Foley. The lawsuit asserts, “Dr. Foley indicated that the legality was up in the air but that students who mentally identify themselves with the opposite sex could choose the locker room and bathroom to use, and physical sex did not matter.”
When the boy asked if there was anything that could be done to protect him from the situation, Foley told him to “tolerate” it and make it as “natural” as he possibly could, according to the lawsuit. Foley allegedly reiterated that the boy should make it “natural” as the boy exited. DailyWire
