Chicago Public Schools Making Bathrooms Gender-Neutral

Chicago Public Schools Making Bathrooms Gender-Neutral

How about you concentrate on your lousy test scores? Rhetorical question: How are you graduating so many students!?

This slipped under the radar and I apologize for not catching it sooner since I’m obsessed with my home city.

Chicago Public Schools (CPS) eliminated sex-specific bathrooms on Wednesdays to make the schools more inclusive. Because we all know that’s important and obviously sticks with their promise to provide the kids with a safe learning environment.

Every bathroom has a sign showing that anyone can use the bathroom. Boys+ and Girls+ appear above the bathroom entrances.

“This is an incredibly important step to increase gender equity for all,” said Camie Pratt, the CPS Title IX officer.

Cook County is about to become the next Loudoun County!

How about we concentrate on education? Test scores dropped during the pandemic but honestly…CPS did not achieve decent test scores before the pandemic:

At CPS, 21% of kids met or exceeded English standards this year, compared to 28% in 2019. In math, only 16% met or exceeded expectations, down from 24% the year before the pandemic. The test wasn’t administered last year.

Similar trends, though not as steep, were seen on the SAT college-entrance exam administered to 11th-graders.

About 23% of students met or exceeded expectations in English this year, down from 26% in 2019. And 21% reached satisfactory levels in math this year compared to 27% before the pandemic.

Hmm, it appears the people who should have been aborted but weren’t make it to the upper ranks of the Democratic sewer culture.

    Once when I was in college, I accidentally walked into the men’s restroom. I was horrified and ran out. It would be terrible if school students had to share restrooms. That would be horrible. If you can’t even get away to the restroom…!

This story cannot be real.

It must be from the Babylon Bee!

There is an explanation for the lousy test scores. Do you know what it is. I know what it is. We’re not allowed to say.

What could possibly go wrong?

The Loudon County rape was not caused by any gender-neutral restroom policy.

For one thing, there was no such policy at the time.

For another, the boy wasn’t pretending to be a girl, and wasn’t some predator looking for a random girl to rape. He was there because that was where he and his girlfriend met regularly for sex. On this occasion she wasn’t in the mood, and he didn’t take “no” for an answer. And the school didn’t ignore it; as soon as the girl complained they referred it immediately to the policeman on site.

    Someone tell YahooNews (hardly a ‘conservative’ media outlet) that the rapist wasn’t ‘transgendered.’ There is AMPLE evidence it was.

    With respect to what the school and its resource officer did or did not do, it’s very clear they didn’t follow established procedures. The school did NOT immediately notify the girl’s parents. HOURS went by before the father was notified by his own daughter. The school resource officer – who is NOT in a position to investigate sexual assaults – didn’t call his superiors….ever. It wasn’t until uniformed officers arrived on scene – called by the school to have the father removed – was the girl’s rape allegation properly investigated.

    You’re right about the transgendered bathroom policy not being in place…..YET. The father was subsequently arrested when he had the ‘audacity’ to talk about his daughter’s experience at a public forum where the policy was being debated.

      Milhouse in reply to TargaGTS. | December 3, 2021 at 11:35 am

      That report is from National Review, which is certainly a conservative outlet. Yahoo News is merely an aggregator.

      And while the author characterizes the rapist as “transgender”, the court did not. As she admits later in the article, “The alleged gender fluidity of the perpetrator was not raised during the hearing, according to the New York Times, although court documents confirm the offender was wearing a skirt when the assault took place.”

      As for how the policeman handled the report, that has nothing to do with the school. The school reported the complaint properly and immediately, and from that point on it was in the hands of the police force.

        TargaGTS in reply to Milhouse. | December 3, 2021 at 12:55 pm

        Lolz. “Court documents confirm the offender was WEARING A SKIRT..’ How obtuse can you be?

        A girl was raped in the school and the administrators NEVER CALLED THE PARENTS of the victim. And you think this is normal behavior? As I said, how obtuse can you be?

        mbecker908 in reply to Milhouse. | December 3, 2021 at 1:23 pm

        National Review is NOT a “conservative outlet” and hasn’t been for at least a decade. It’s a clickbait site that likes to promote itself as “conservative” but they’ll be conservative when my 74 body gets picked in the first round of the NFL draft.

        And you are an idiot.

          thetaqjr in reply to mbecker908. | December 3, 2021 at 4:36 pm

          I haven’t read NR regularly for at least a decade. I did not know it had released itself from its conservative moorings.

          NR: Anti-Rule of Law, belief in profligate government spending, pro abortion, pro state intrusion into every element supporting private property and private actions constitutionally protected?

          What path has the publication taken?

        RickCaird in reply to Milhouse. | December 4, 2021 at 12:52 pm

        Why do all the really stupid ideas come out of academia. After observing bathroom rape in Loudon County, Camy Pratt wants to encourage that i Chicago schools. She should be fired immediately and her position left unfilled forever.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to Milhouse. | December 3, 2021 at 10:53 am

    You are missing the point, in that it is unwise to have teens with their drawers down in an unsupervised setting. That is bound to lead to coupling, both with and without mutual consent.

      Milhouse in reply to JohnSmith100. | December 3, 2021 at 11:39 am

      Huh? So you want a proctor in every restroom?! Or single-person restrooms?! In any case, what’s it got to do with gender neutrality? If allowing more than one student in a restroom at the same time, without supervision, is a bad idea, then it doesn’t matter what sex/es they are. As we see, this happened at a time when boys were not allowed in the girls’ room, and yet this boy was regularly going there at his girlfriend’s invitation. Presumably he was there this time too at her invitation; the only difference was that this time she didn’t consent to sex.

    gonzotx in reply to Milhouse. | December 3, 2021 at 11:52 am

    Yeah, I guess the other girl at the other school he sexually attacked said “no” too. You are absurd

    henrybowman in reply to Milhouse. | December 3, 2021 at 3:12 pm

    “For one thing, there was no such policy at the time.”
    All the more reprehensible of them to insist on establishing that policy afterward, which is exactly what they did, and exactly why they tried to keep the rape quiet.

      thetaqjr in reply to henrybowman. | December 3, 2021 at 11:13 pm

      So, Loudon adms say to the daddy in a public meeting, For the past 5 weeks, Your little girl has been fucking her boyfriend’s brains silly every Thursday @12:15 pm in a girls’ RR stall..?

      I’ve always been shy, naïve, I’d likely not have been told, maybe not have understood, but I bet you 50%+ boys&girls knew that was going on, ongoing.

      In one way or another, most of the student body would have whiffed that little scene.

The d/prog leadership in Chicago is seemingly unaware that their constituents are not monolithic on every issue. Whatever touchy/feely issue de jour the elites push doesn’t automatically have the support of their coalition members.

    Oh – they are aware. They just don’t care. With widespread voting by the “corporeality-challenged” in Chicago and protection by the Joseph Goebbels media, they feel they are beyond the reach of the dirty proles.

      That’s true to an extent, the actual people though have more options than simply voting. I wouldn’t be surprised to see pushback from certain churches in Chicago. Not all by any means but certainly some.

I have no problem with gender neutral bathrooms. What does it matter if there is only one person using it at a time and the door locks? If it is a multi person room, then these people are frickin’ nuts!

    TargaGTS in reply to oldvet50. | December 3, 2021 at 10:24 am

    How many school restrooms have you seen where it’s a single-toilet facility with a door lock, particularly urban school that generally tend to be larger?

    gonzotx in reply to oldvet50. | December 3, 2021 at 11:55 am

    Sorry, men and boys are terrible shooters and pee all over the commode

    henrybowman in reply to oldvet50. | December 3, 2021 at 3:10 pm

    I’ve never seen one-person facilities in schools. They’re too resource-intensive.
    I appreciate seeing them in campgrounds and retail outlets. They are a great solution to all the women lining up outside an occupied door while the other room is idle.

The salient question is whether the WWW (white woke womyn) Title IX officer will let all students use her bathroom or if she only uses the students’ restrooms?

Again… a Karen in charge of the insane asylum.

We used to call that “co-ed”.

This reminds me of the “Condom Wars” of a few decades ago. In an effort to divert attention from their schools’ lousy test scores and overall poor management, administrators decided to make birth control and abortion referrals available to students WITHOUT parents knowing about it.

The results were predictable. Parents who objected were smeared as anti-sex fundamentalist wackos by the Joseph Goebbels media. Crime in the schools rose and test scores continued to drop. And the administrators got to live out their twisted pedo fantasies by doing their part to sexualize children.

Uptick in girls doing their best to drink as little as possible and hold everything in until they can get home every Wednesday is coming in 3…2…1

how could this policy not be considered an “invasion of privacy” for these students?

I assume they are just waiting for problems at this point. No one enacts this with a straight face thinking it will magically be a good idea and go off without a hitch.

    “Is there going to be an individual who’s going to go and molest or rape somebody? You bet. Guaranteed. It’s guaranteed to happen. It does not invalidate the overall approach.”
    OK? Nothing to see here. It’s all been handled for us by our betters.

Girls will be punished for reporting rapes and assaults in the shared showers soon enough

My wife works at a Chicago public high school.

All of the bathrooms now have the same sign.

It is impossible to tell whether the bathroom is historically male or female without entering into the bathroom. – Then it is too late.

II would go crazy if I had a daughter in a CPS school!

Chicago isn’t going to be “the next Loudoun.”
They’re asking Loudoun to hold their beer.

to make our restrooms more inclusive

Sick, demented perverts. They should all be in jail.

On the “bright” side: Someone will have to rewrite the lyrics to “Smoking in the Boys’ Room”….

Back in the ’70s when the proposed Equal Rights Amendment was a hot topic, my aunts feared that it would mandate unisex bathrooms. I was dismissive of their concerns. More the fool me.
