I Storbritannia har en 13 år gammel jente tatt sin hjemkommunes beslutning om å gi transjenter adgang til jenters garderober til retten.

Vedtaket om å tillate transjenter i jentegarderober var en del kommunestyret Oxfordshire Countys plan og prosjekt “Trans Inclusion Toolkit for School 2019”. 

Tenåringen, kjent som Miss A, ønsker en juridisk vurdering av de nye retningslinjene til kommunen. Organisasjonen Safe School Alliance (SSA) støtter hennes arbeid, og via dem sier hun følgende:

 The toolkit has a very significant impact on me as a girl. I am very surprised that the council never asked the opinion of girls in Oxfordshire about what we thought before they published the toolkit.”

Under these guidelines I have no right to privacy from the opposite sex in changing rooms, loos or on residential trips,” she continued. “Sports could end up being unsafe as I am a really small teenage girl and boys are bigger than girls. This guidance could be used in any educational establishment in Oxfordshire, which possibly includes sports clubs.”

“The guidance makes me feel that my desire for privacy, dignity, safety, and respect is wrong.

“It makes me feel sad, powerless and confused.”

“Single gender toilets can cause issues for children or young people who do not identify with a gender binary such as boy/girl.”

Om garderober heter det:

 “In all cases, trans children and young people should have access to the changing room that corresponds to their gender identity.”

And regarding occasions when children go on overnight school trips, it states: “As far as possible, trans children and young people should be able to sleep in dorms appropriate to their gender identity.”

Talsmann for SSA, Tanya Carter, sier ifølge Lifesitenews at de nye retningslinjene er i strid med all tradisjonell forståelse hva gjelder barns sikkerhet.

Dette er ideer vi også ser i Norge. Når begrepet kjønnsidentitet kommer inn i diskrimineringslovgivningen, blir det svært vanskelig å forsvare hensynet til jenter og kvinners anstendighet og sikkerhet.
