Atherton High School (USA)

A freshman male at Atherton High School in Kentucky received permission from Principal Thomas Aberli to use the girls’ facilities because he “identifies as female,” prompting complaints from several students and “about a dozen phone calls from concerned parents.”  Aberli is taking the issue to the school’s site-based council members, who will meet Thursday to discuss adding gender identity to Atherton’s non-discrimination policy.

We understand from a source that the male in question is heterosexual and has a girlfriend.


Transgender controversy re-opens Louisville schools discrimination debate.

  1. BIOLOGICAL MALES DO NOT BELONG IN WOMEN’S RESTROOMS. PENIS IN A WOMEN’S RESTROOM IS NOT A CIVIL RIGHT. THIS INSANITY MUST STOP. It’s violating the privacy rights of female students and jeopardizing their safety and sense of personal privacy. This male student is a high school freshman, and he has no business using a girl’s restroom.

    Sooner or later a female student is going to be harmed by this and other “gender identity” laws. When it happens, the school district needs to be sued. Letting teenage girls and teenage boys use the same restroom or locker room is an incident waiting to happen.

    We have already seen “gender identity” laws being abused at the expense of the privacy rights and safety of females. The Francis episode could be construed as a legalized form of sexual harassment.

    This blatant abuse of “gender identity” laws happened at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. The mother of a seventeen year old girl complained that a male exposed himself in the women’s sauna and locker room. Below is a link to the actual campus police report. Because they can’t “mis-gender” anyone, even if he still has a penis, the campus police report states, “her legs open with her male genitalia showing.” This is how insane it’s become.

    KIORTV OLYMPIA, Wash. — October 2012

    A transgender woman said she was discriminated against after using the women’s locker room at Evergreen State College. Colleen Francis was using the sauna in a women’s locker room inside the recreation center at the school late in September.

    The same facility is used by two high school girls swim teams from Olympia, who also practice in the pool.

    KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reporter Deborah Horne spoke with Francis about the incident in which a woman told her to leave.

    “I looked at her and said, ‘Excuse me?’ And she said, ‘You have to leave, I’ll be right back,’” said Francis. “She wouldn’t identify herself. All she said was that there were a couple of girls that came upstairs to the pool, and said that there was a man in the sauna.”

    Francis, who acknowledges she was born a man, said she lived as a woman since 2009.

    Someone still called campus police, and local parents heard about the incident.

    “They’re uncomfortable with him being in there, her, being in there and are shocked by it,” said parent Kristi Holterman.

    Holterman’s daughter was one of the swimmers and complained to Evergreen.

    Officials at the school told KIRO 7 that they have been working with the Olympia School District, which leases space at the pool.

    According to state law, it requires equal access to state facilities regardless of gender identity.

    Local school officials said they came up with a temporary solution.

    “There’s a smaller locker room next to the main locker room at the pool, and they (the swim teams) have been using that,” said Ryan Betz, a spokesman for the Olympia School District.

    Francis believes the students need to be informed.

    “This is not 1959 Alabama. We don’t call police for drinking from the wrong water fountain,” said Francis.

    A parent told KIRO 7 that she is more concerned that her daughter and teammates have a safe and comfortable place to swim.”


    Please note that under sex it says, “F”. At the time of this incident, Francis definitely had male genitalia. Scroll on down and see where it says, “her male genitalia”. Yes, this campus police report says, “her legs open with her male genitalia showing “. This is how insane “gender identity” laws have become. For those unfamiliar with this incident, Francis is a retired military man who was married a couple of times and has children. At the time of this campus police report, he was taking classes at Evergreen State College.

    Below is another example of “gender identity” laws running rough shod over the privacy rights of women. This happened recently in Canada which also has “gender identity” laws. This particular woman is elderly, but what makes people think that teenage boys who are usually more irresponsible than adults wouldn’t try the same thing? If anything, teenage boys are usually more careless and irresponsible than adults. We are supposed to pretend that males exposing themselves and then claiming “gender identity” will never happen again.

    “I am a senior woman. Recently, a “man” claiming to be transgender, who had not yet begun physical treatments, was permitted by our local Y to use the women’s locker room. There are no secure change rooms. The person they allowed in was not courteous and stared at me while I struggled out of a wet bathing suit. He was naked, had an erection and playfully asked ‘do you come here often?’ I understand that gender is no longer judged solely by genitalia, but does a brief contact with the duty manager mean that men not yet committed to gender reassignment are free to disrobe anywhere they choose?”

    It didn’t take long for women to respond. An excellent response to this article entitled, “Trans rights trump women’s rights” was posted online.

    Transgender man’s ogling behaviour unacceptable, Jan. 4

    “Ontarians accept that it is a challenging life for people with transgendered identities, which is why providing a reasonable alternative via the use of separate unisex bathrooms or change rooms seems to be a reasonable course of action to assist such individuals. Why is this reasonable and simple accommodation not enough for the minuscule minority of transgendered individuals among the millions of Ontarians?

    Our “decision-makers” at the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal have decided for all Ontarians that it’s not enough for a trans person to view himself as the opposite sex — the whole world must be forced to share his subjective view, too.

    The new transgender bathroom policy has affirmed that the vast majority of Ontarian women and men are not entitled to the protection of the Human Rights Code as much as transsexuals are. What about the feelings, discomfort, and safety of the millions of girls and women in Ontario who are now forced to undress in the same change room with a pre-operation phenotypic male, who may claim to be transsexual? (***does this sound familiar)

    Do our rights get trumped because an individual subjectively “feels” female even though he may still have a penis, and be more than happy to show it off? Did the OHRT consult Ontarians regarding their decision?

    I am concerned that sexually predatory men will take advantage of the new bill by claiming they are transsexual in order to freely access any women’s washroom in the province. The guaranteed consequences of this bill are that many girls and women will definitely be victimized as a result.

    Mr. Gallinger’s article suggests that this is already happening — hardly a surprise — and the trend will likely increase because there are no legal consequences for any predatory individuals who behave in this way. A predator banned from one facility simply has to go down the road to another.

    Mr. Gallinger bemoans the predatory behaviour that one poor woman was forced to endure, while actively supporting a system that allows such predatory behaviour to flourish. Far more women than trans people stand to feel invaded and helpless by such behaviour as there are likely far more sexually predatory individuals out there than transgendered people — predatory individuals who will be delighted to put on a dress (or not even that) in order to access women’s bathrooms and change rooms under the guise of being self-identified as “transgendered.”

    Although a transgendered person may feel s/he has the “right” to be in a women’s change room, what about the feelings of the phenotypic females who may not wish a phenotypic male to be in that washroom?

    We women are entitled to the protection of the Human Rights Code, just like anyone else. Exactly how many transsexual people are there for whom we are risking the safety and security of our roughly 6.8 million girls and women?”

    Predator who claimed to be transgender declared dangerous offender

    TORONTO – A sexual predator who falsely claimed to be transgender and preyed on women at two Toronto shelters was jailed indefinitely on Wednesday. He noted the Montreal man, 37, attacked four vulnerable females between the ages of five and 53 in Montreal and Toronto over the past 12 years. “He has demonstrated from the age of 12 until the present an inability to control his sexual impulses,” said McMahon.

    Justice John McMahon declared Christopher Hambrook — who claimed to be a transgender woman named Jessica — was a dangerous offender”


  2. I don’t agree with everything they do, and I don’t share all their political views, but the Alliance Defending Freedom makes some very reasonable suggestions such as letting students use single stall gender neutral restrooms or a staff restroom. This makes sense, and I don’t see why these alternatives aren’t considered.

    Since he is male, he could still use the boy’s restroom.


  3. If the principal decided this on his own, it’s time to find a new principal.

    From everything that I’ve read, the student is a biological male high school student.

    “LOUISVILLE, Ky. —A meeting Thursday afternoon at Atherton High School will address concerns about a decision to allow a transgender student, who is anatomically male, to use the girl’s restroom.”

    The article says “anatomically male” which means he needs to stay out of the girl’s restroom.

    “We understand from a source that the male in question is heterosexual and has a girlfriend.”

    I don’t know if he is straight or bisexual, but I read that he has a girlfriend. They could sneak into one of the stalls in the girl’s restroom at the high school and have sex. Don’t tell me that high school students with their raging hormones don’t think about things like this.
