restroom pdLOUISVILLE – Following a request from a ‘transgender’ student, a Kentucky high school has approved a new non-discrimination policy which will give male students access to girls’ restrooms, and vice versa, as long as students identify with the opposite sex. Last month, a freshman student at Atherton High School in Louisville, Kentucky, asked the school’s principal if he could use the girls’ restroom and locker room. The student claimed to be transgender and said he identified as a girl, even though he reportedly has a girlfriend. According to reports, the high school’s principal, Thomas Aberli, granted the student’s request. This decision prompted complaints from several parents and students who were concerned about a male student using the girls’ facilities. In spite of the complaints, Aberli defended his decision, saying “everyone deserves to be treated with respect.” More
