Massachusetts Schools Introduce New Transgender Policy: Affects Bathrooms, Locker Rooms, Sports Teams [AUDIO]


A new statewide policy as kids head back to school today. The state’s Department of Education has new rules when it comes to students that identify themselves as transgender. It allows an anatomical boy who identifies himself as a girl to play on a girl’s sports team and use the girl’s locker rooms or bathrooms (and vice verse).

Andrew Beckwith from the Massachusetts Family Institute told JR, Michael Rock and Larry this morning that many of the school committees in the state were unaware of the new policy.  Click here to listen to the entire interview.

However, Gunner Scott of Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition told the Boston Globe that the new policy will be helpful to make sure that the school environment is safe and welcoming to each child. Scott also told the Globe that disciplining students who don’t acknowledge a student’s preferred gender identity is appropriate because it amounts to bullying.
