THE KENOSHA UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT is currently forcing Ash Whitaker and other transgender students to wear badges of shame the same as the Nazis did in an effort to humiliate and endanger LGBT lives.

The Daily Beasts reports that a federal Title IX lawsuit filed in Wisconsin on Tuesday alleges that the Kenosha Unified School District instructed guidance counselors to have Ash Whitaker, a 16-year old transgender boy, and “any other transgender students at the school” wear “bright green wristbands” so that the school could “more easily monitor and enforce [their] restroom usage.”
The Transgender Law Center has filed a lawsuit on behalf of Ash Whitaker and his mother which reads in part:
(Whitaker had been using the boys room uneventfully for seven months when he was denied) access to boys’ restrooms at school and requiring him to use girls’ restrooms or a single occupancy
restroom; (b) directing school staff to monitor his restroom usage and to report to
administrators if he was observed using a boys’ restroom; (c) intentionally and repeatedly using
his birth name and female pronouns, and failing to appropriately inform substitute teachers and
other staff members of his preferred name and pronouns, resulting in those staff referring to him
by his birth name or with female pronouns in front of other students; (d) instructing guidance
counselors to issue bright green wristbands to A.W. and any other transgender students at the
school, to more easily monitor and enforce these students’ restroom usage; (e) requiring him to
room with girls on an orchestra trip to Europe and requiring, as a condition of his ability to
participate in a recent overnight school-sponsored orchestra camp held on a college campus, that
he stay either in a multi-room suite with girls, or alone in a multi-room suite with no other
students, while all other boys shared multi-room suites with other boys; and (f) initially denying
him the ability to run for junior prom king, despite being nominated for that recognition based on
his active involvement in community service, instructing him that he could only run for prom
queen, and only relenting and allowing him to run for prom king after a protest by many of those
THE KENOSHA UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT denied all of the complainants allegations…
IF YOU WERE WONDERING AS I WAS JUST HOW MANY “TRANSGENDERED PEOPLE ARE OUT THERE? STUDENTS MAKE UP A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF THAT PERCENTAGE READ THE ARTICLE BELOW. ASK WHY IS A SMALL PART OF THE POPULACE CONTROLLING EVERYONE ELSES BEHAVIOR?
HOW MANY ADULTS IDENTIFY AS TRANSGENDER IN THE UNITED STATES?
The Williams Institute’s June 2016 survey reports that the transgender population doubled since 2011, the last time the number was estimated. The 2011 survey, pegged our numbers at just .03% of the population or roughly 700,000 people. That number has often been referenced by hate groups working against transgender progress with the meme to ‘protect all’ against being discomforted by an almost non-existent voiceless inconsequential minority. Add that idea to the inevitable albeit imaginary herds of perverts who would come out as trans to peep in bathrooms and presto, a vile minority to exclude, even kill, justified by a Christian Bible (which if they read embraced transsexuality three times)!
That meme just worked in Texarkana Arkansas where voters turned out 4-1 to overturn the city council’s trans-inclusive ordinance during the same week that SecDef Ash Carter announced the end of the military trans ban.
The method that the William Institute used to get these new figures came from extracting data from a national CDC survey. There are no national polls asking about transgender/cisgender status so the newest estimate is that, just an estimate.
It’s possible that there’s a whole lot more of us than the latest educated guess would suggest.
Jody Herman, a public policy scholar at the Williams Institute at the University of California at Los Angeles, told VOA Thursday that the results are from people self-reporting on U.S. government surveys. She said while the study did not examine the factors behind the rise in self-identification, growing social acceptance of transgender people might have influenced the rise in numbers.
“That’s one possible explanation,” she said, “that it’s becoming more mainstream.” She says that as social acceptance of transgender identity grows, it is likely that people would be more willing to identify as such on a survey.”
That and being transgender used to be the last thing anyone could ever wish to be, a curse, a cruel joke by a vindictive god, loss of cis privilege, and possible death sentence. But then there’s the Mike Huckabee clone who commented on the VOA article….
