A public school’s ‘non-discrimination policy’ allows Colleen Francis, a biological male who identifies as a woman, to use the women’s locker room and restrooms.
Administrators at a public college are claiming that state law allows them to permit biological males who self-identify as females into women’s locker rooms and restrooms on campus.
Officials at Evergreen State College in Washington State stood by the claim in an interview with Campus Reform on Friday despite multiple complaints from females who apparently complained about the presence of men in women’s facilities.
“We have to follow a non-discrimination policy with the state,” college spokesperson Jason Wettstein told Campus Reform on Friday.
“State law doesn’t allow us to ignore gender identity as one of the protected classes,” he added.
“Therefore the transgendered individual has the right to use our facilities, including the locker rooms.”
The college rents their swimming pool and associated facilities out to two high school swim teams and has received complaints from multiple parents who are concerned that an adult man is permitted to enter the woman’s locker room.
