Skip to comments.Pa. school district approves plan to build gender-neutral locker rooms
Posted on 10/16/2019 5:03:12 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia
After months of controversy, the Eastern Lancaster County District in Pennsylvania has approved a plan to build non-gender specific locker rooms and changing areas, according to WGAL.
The renovation project comes after a transgender student, who was born female but identifies as male, was allowed by the district to use the boys' locker room.
The proposed plan could be a map to the future in the Elanco School District.
"It's been a difficult, long journey the last seven to nine months but that long difficult journey has produced a product that I think is a win for everyone," said Superintendent Bob Hollister.
The product is a $2.4 million renovation to create four, nongender specific showers and changing areas with 76 showers and 48 changing areas, WGAL reported.
Each area in the renovated locker rooms will have its own door to ensure privacy.
The superintendent said today's students have more body image issues than previous generations and hardly use the school's communal shower facilities.

Property values in the Elanco school district just plunged.
Sending your kids to public school in today’s society is child abuse. Just don’t do it.
“The superintendent said today’s students have more body image issues than previous generations”
Thanks Hollywood for the bang up job done on youth self esteem these days.
Penn had co-ed bathrooms in the dorms since at least the 1980s

Going to be difficult to do the same in the US Army or even the prison system.
I could have been an all American on the girls basketball team. And the girls swim team. Shower time would have been a bonus.
Not a problem it’s A PUBLIC SCHOOL. The left owns them.
Getting rid of communal showers is a good thing though. Especially with all the perv teachers.
This is a long, but, genius level speech by AG Barr at Notre Dame which was referenced in another post here on FR. I just watched it and highly recommend it. What is going on in our public schools and in all our major institutions is very alarming. Secularism will turn us into socialism, then, communism which will end in tyranny. How on earth could we have allowed these things to happen? Why have we sold our souls to get along with those who hate faith and morality?

What they could use more is suicide prevention rather than locker-rooms.
No support for Hollywood from me, but I blame the Internet and social media.
Everyone poses and uses extreme makeup techniques (many originated in South Korea)to present as clones of whatever is being touted as *hot* for *all* genders. Even the physically challenged and less-than-attractive are encouraged to show off their bodies and genitals. The predictable results from judgemental teens/twenty-nothings become extremely bullying.
I believe that even the most physically attractive young people from the 60s-80s would not succeed in meeting today’s *standards* among their peers. I see reports all the time of young people whom I judge as attractive being told how ugly and disgusting they are on social media. Some end in suicide; others end in some sort of bizarre body modification.
The young people themselves have created this milieu.
I watch some movies and a lot of TV series on Netflix, so I see them months, sometimes years after they are released. So far, all I’ve picked up on is that casting directors tend to choose actors who all look alike. Sometimes, it’s confusing to the plot and difficult to keep them straight. But the real culprit is the trend to selfies and the makeup tutorials that result in this uniform physical presentation.
Let a single young person simply present themselves as they are and the entire tribe will descend upon them with venom.
And what keeps more than one student from occupying said shower?
Windows on the doors?
Cameras in the shower?
A new administrative position for someone to inspect said showers during use?
Why do they need doors etc?
We are told that gay students in locker rooms won’t look at other boys’ junk and that transvestites at Target aren’t scoping out girls in the dressing rooms or rest rooms.
It’s the only solution to the increasing madness running amok in our society.
At least the girls are protected. And boys too, but that seems to be a far smaller concern than girls safety.
The left wins by boredom & disgust. At first we think that they are just nuts and we retreat to do something worthwhile.
It is human nature to judge others to be like ourselves. Evil is most pernicious when it comes wrapped in a pretty or sanctimonious face. The Left used the factors of disguising intent, seeming harmless, out for good and the boredom factor in listening to them drone on to made it easy to choose to redirect our eyes to more immediate commitments or work, thinking they will never accomplish anything.
That was a big mistake. When they realized the direction of education more aware people tried schoolboard membership, homeschool, letters, speaking at school meetings but the left quickly took over education, in teachers colleges, the professional educators, the groups that give teacher seminars are supported as an outreach by LGBT/socialist/American hating groups.
It is like fighting city hall, battling the assumptions that “we are right; you are wrong; we own the children” is an uphill battle with no traction.
Some districts & states are attempting to make home schooling more & more difficult to choose, even though testing & the performance in college demonstrates home schooled students are more prepared & function more efficiently.
My youngest was home schooled through the lucky accident of Lyme disease. The Lyme was very hard but she started college at the correct age with 30 credits from the local community college and did very well in college & grad school. I lost my eldest son to Cornell. He left home loving us & returned an angry young man who has not yet found his way back. The Leftist onslaught in college is hard to resist especially if you are a trusting person by nature
So 2 1/2 million taxpayer bucks wasted to keep one nutcase happy?
$2,400,000 to satisfy some gender bender’s fantasy? I don’t know how big the school district is, but that would be about $120 in extra taxes per household in a large district like ours.
Yup. When you’re willing to spend $2.4 million to comply with lunacy the situation is pretty much beyond salvage.
“The descent into madness continues apace.”
Yup, Idle power, flaps, landing gear & spoilers deployed and twenty degrees nose down pitch.
That’s what an “eddikashun” degree does nowadays.
