Last night, in one of the more surreal moments of an already other-worldly presidential campaign, Anderson Cooper asked Donald Trump if he understood that he was recorded bragging about sexually assaulting women in the now infamous TrumpTapes. In fact, his comments on public recordings are arguably just as vile, if a little less "pussy"-heavy. Less clear, however, is how different he is from other men in the same position.
Gym designers have rid locker rooms of the gnarly shower curtains, trading them in for sexy glass escape pods. They have made bathroom stalls ever more private. Comfy couch corners, Wi-Fi and lockers with built-in locks have gone from swank options to standard issue.
Space can get really tight—recently, it was so crowded that a man who was crouching down to get his stuff out of one of the lower lockers squatted his butt on my water bottle that was sitting at the edge of the bench. Sometimes a particularly good-natured patron will remark on how it always seems that you return to your locker at the same time that a person using an adjacent locker to yours does, no matter how empty or crowded the locker room is. But maybe also there is something to general rules of space-filling yielding to clusters of people who roughly enter and exit the gym at the same time.
In search of our true identity. This move represents a startling departure from reason and as David French articulately pointed out for National Review while writing about a similar incident in Missouri. Exposing a penis to girls in a public high school is generally considered an act of sexual harassment, not part of the sexual revolution. Give me that new-time religion: Leftism.
He is a male! The school district has based its transgender policy on the U. Council Bluffs Community School District Superintendent Vicki Murillo said there is a process in place to grant transgender or transitioning students permission to use the restroom that corresponds to their gender identity.
A FEW months ago, the state of Washington decided to allow people to choose locker rooms based on an internal sense of whether they are male or female instead of sticking with the longstanding, sensible practice of designating locker rooms for use by men or women based on clear biological realities. Seattle Parks and Recreation issued a statement suggesting that the man would not have been asked to leave if he had simply verbally identified as a woman. It sure seems that way.
A Poway Unified School District board meeting was packed Tuesday night with people raising questions about student rights. Parent Holly Franz said she learned when the semester resumed three weeks ago that a genetically female student who identifies as male was changing in the locker room. Franz said she understood that the district must follow the law, but would like the school to make accommodations for others who may feel awkward because of the situation.
We should all be born fully clothed and never get undressed, ever. What is the athletic club doing about the fact that dangerous predators are members making use of its facilities? It is unconscionable that they would continue to operate their facility without taking drastic action in the face of such dangers. Well then.
I mean, can you imagine a woman trying to ask questions in a locker room filled with a lot of guys? Simply put, a woman will probably not be able to get the interviews that a male reporter would. However, I realized that it's tough on guys, too.
Philadelphia, Pa. In this case, school officials are clearly ignoring that duty. When the male student complained to school officials, they told him that students who identify as the opposite sex may choose their locker room. When the male student asked officials to protect his privacy, the officials allegedly told him to tolerate the behavior and make changing clothes in the presence of the student as natural as possible.
