ABC News BlogsTransgender Student in Women's Locker Room Raises UproarBy Alyssa Newcomb | ABC News Blogs – 16 hrs ago

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.

The locker room at Evergreen College in Olympia, Wash., is shared with
the Capital High School swim club and a children's swim academy, along
with the students at Evergreen.

"The college has to follow state law," Evergreen spokesman Jason Wettstein told ABC News affiliate KOMO.
"The college cannot discriminate based on the basis of gender identity.
Gender identity is one of the protected things in discrimination law in
this state."

But according to parents, the fact that the student has exposed her male
, in one instance in the sauna, is cause for concern.

"[A mother] reported her daughter was upset because she observed a
person at the women's locker room naked and displaying male genitalia,"
said a police report filed in September by a mother on behalf of her
17-year-old daughter.

The Alliance Defending Freedom, an Arizona-based religious liberties
group, sent a letter to Evergreen College on Friday, warning it that
the decision to allow the transgender student to continue using the
locker room could put the school in jeopardy.

"The fact that this individual was sitting in plain view of young girls
changing into their swimsuits puts you and Evergreen on notice of
possible future harm," David Hacker, senior legal counsel, wrote.

The college has installed privacy curtains, and said it would not change its policy for now.

    Get rid of a long standing unnecessary stigma. Genitals are as good as any body part. People need to stop thinking that God made a mistake when he making genitals and nipples etc. Let furries show them in whatever furry convention.The showing of a part on the body does not make the body made bad. Get rid of a long standing unnecessary stigma.

    If I saw a penis in a female locker room I'd do - or feel like doing - a Lorena Bobbitt.

    HE is a MAN obviously showing off his genitals without any concern about the girls and women. It's disgusting and he should be hella ashamed of himself.

    Actually, the voters of the state of Washington should be ashamed of themselves for letting this disgrace happen in the first place.

    If you expose tour penis in view of a 17 year old girl in a womens locker room then you should not only go to jail for indecent exposure but you should also be put on the pervert list!
    It doesnt matter if you identify yourself as an Aardvark, If you were born with a penis you are a man so take your dress to the mens room and keep your penis out of the womens room.

    I don't see what the problem is. I mean it's not like she had sex with the other females. If she wants to be a female let her be a female even if it offends some people.
  • shane No One 2012/11/04 17:44:43
    The problem is that the women who use that locker room have a right to expect that there will only be women in it. It doesnt matter if he wants to be a flying elephant, he was born with a penis and therefore HE is a MAN and has been provided with a mens locker room.
    He should be put in jail and on the perverts list and expelled from school.
  • No One shane 2012/11/04 17:56:01

    But even if she/he shouldn't have been in the womens locker room it's not like he/she touched the women or checked them out. He/She just got changed in there so the worst he/she should get is a small fine or a warning.
  • shane No One 2012/11/04 18:02:11
    He committed Indecent Exposure in a place clearly marked as a womens locker room and was witnessed by a minor. There should not be any tolerance of that.
  • No One shane 2012/11/04 18:07:09
    No One
    And I guess that minor now has permanent psychological damage after just seeing someone get changed.
  • shane No One 2012/11/04 18:12:06
    Doesnt matter.
    She has every right to not be subjected to a naked man in her locker room just because he has psychological damage. Its illegal and he knew it. He has his own locker room but he chose to enter the womens room and disrobe, That is a crime.
  • No One shane 2012/11/04 19:33:39

    Its not illegal in the state he was in if you read the article.

    It says

    "'The college has to follow state law,' Evergreen spokesman Jason Wettstein told ABC News affiliate KOMO. 'The college cannot discriminate based on the basis of gender identity. Gender identity is one of the protected things in discrimination law in this state.'"

    You may want it to be illegal but it seems it is not in the state he was in. In fact if gender identity is protected by the state it might be illegal to have him arrested for what he has done.
  • shane No One 2012/11/05 04:11:27
    It may say that gender confusion is protected by state law but i also bet that public indecency and exposing your self to a minor is illegal
  • shadow76 No One 2012/11/04 19:04:19
    you seem to think a pervert doing that to a kid is funny, it isn't. It is a crime!
  • No One shadow76 2012/11/04 19:43:13
    No One
    I didn't say I thought it was funny but I do think it is worse to put him/her in jail for what he/she did than what he/she did. If he/she is to face any consequences for what he/she did he/she should be forced to watch others getting changed as that way the punishment is the same as the offence. If his/her indecent exposure is so bad than having to watch others changing is a very harsh sentence. If having to watch other change is too mild a sentence than indecent exposure must not be that bad of a crime. Having the sentence the same as the crime garantees that the punishment fits the crime. Anyway it's not like his/her intention was to offende anyone. He/she was getting dressed and someone happened to look.
  • shadow76 No One 2012/11/05 12:44:39
    Indecent exposure is a criminal offence! The rest of what you just said made no sense to me! He didn't care if he offended anyone, that is their intent, offending decent people!
  • No One shadow76 2012/11/06 13:51:34
    No One
    It seems offence is more just a side effect in the same way that drawsyness may be a side effect of some medications but is not the intended effect. The main intent was to get changed.
  • shadow76 No One 2012/11/06 14:59:54
    How do you know that? Most of these incidents are done just to offend people and force themselves on others!

  • shadow76 No One 2012/11/06 16:44:01
    Because thy are! why else would they do it? Don't tell me it is innocent because it is not.
  • No One shadow76 2012/11/06 19:01:34
    No One
    Well one reason to do it is to get changed into a swim suit. I mean how are you supposed to change into a swim suit without exposing your genitals. I mean usually people don't wear underwear under a swim suit so you have to take off your underwear to change into swim suits and expose your genitals in the process as you can't take off your underwear without exposing your genitals.
  • shadow76 No One 2012/11/11 07:27:44
    Then he belongs in the men's room! Male genitals DO NOT BELONG IN THE LADIES ROOM!
  • lonewolf shane 2012/11/04 18:29:48

    No One
    Mentally he/she is a female.
  • shadow76 No One 2012/11/05 12:45:53
    Then he needs therapy, Not the right to force himself on others!

    How is he/she forcing him/her self on others?
