Corporations Back SCOTUS Case to Allow Men in Women’s Restrooms

(Katie J. Read, Liberty Headlines) Fifty-three major companies filed a friend-of-the-court brief yesterday that supports the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals’ G. G. v. Gloucester County (Va.) School Board decision of April, 2016, which allows transgender students to use locker rooms and restrooms that correspond to the sex with which “they identify.” The Alliance Defending Freedom also filed a brief, but supported the school board’s gender-separate policy and the continuation of privacy laws regarding bathrooms.

Corporations Back SCOTUS Case to Allow Men in Women's RestroomsBoth briefs follow the Supreme Court’s announcement last October that it will review the case, a decision that could alter existing sex-discrimination and privacy legislation affecting all Americans. Even before this announcement, however, there was pushback from thousands of citizens against this decision.

In its brief, the companies — which include Amazon, Apple, IBM Corporation, Williams-Sonoma Inc., and Yahoo! Inc. — said they stand behind the Court of Appeals’ decision.

“[We] share core values of equality, respect and dignity for all people, regardless of their gender identity,” the corporations’ brief claims. “The Policy undermines…policies promoting fairness and equality for their employees and customers, and thus directly threatens amici’s business interests.”

ADF argued in its appeal that Title IX — which addresses federal law regarding sex discrimination — does not forbid gender-separate bathrooms, locker rooms, dressing rooms, and the like when physical differences between males and females affect matters of privacy.

“Big business shouldn’t be advocating for boys to share the girls’ locker rooms and showers—and vice versa—in our public schools, and yet that’s precisely what these 53 companies are doing,” ADF Legal Counsel Kerri Kupec said in a press release. “What they should be supporting is the bodily privacy and dignity of all students, instead of simply disregarding the rights and reasonable concerns of many students and parents.”

Other companies that signed on to the friend of the court brief include Airbnb, eBay, Gap Inc., Intel Corporation, Lyft, Microsoft, Pandora Media, PayPal, and Twitter.

Before the Supreme Court’s October announcement to review the case, ADF filed a brief representing more than 8,900 parents and students demanding the protection of privacy laws.

“There are decades of court decisions establishing that in light of the right of bodily privacy, no law grants opposite-sex persons access to single-sex facilities, where the interest in privacy is obviously strongest and bodily exposure is so common,” ADF attorney McCaleb said at the time.

According to a press release from the American Civil Liberties Union, the lawsuit against Gloucester County Schools argued that the institution’s policy violates Title IX of the United States Education Amendments of 1972 and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, both of which prohibit federally-funded institutions from discrimination on the basis of sex.

The case addresses a dispute at Gloucester High School in Gloucester, Virginia, where senior Gavin Grimm sued the school board for the recent restrictions prohibiting her from using the men’s bathroom. After Grimm was diagnosed with severe gender dysphoria, she and her mother told the school’s administration of her female-to-male transition, and, according to the ACLU, received permission for Grimm to use male-designated restrooms.

When parents voiced their discomfort with Grimm’s presence in male-only facilities, and the school board revoked her permission, she made an appeal: “All I want to do is be a normal child and use the restroom, and I have had no problem from students to do that. Only from adults.”

The Supreme Court has yet to announce when it will review G. G. v. Gloucester County School Board.

    I think it’s about time for somebody to explain to this child that she-he is not a normal person and obviously has to learn to live with that.


    Send her to a psych doc… and an optometrist…. It is obvious that the young ‘lady’ is in denial and is observing something that isdefinitely not there… And, what the hullaballoo if this young lady is molested or otherwise harmed while in the boys restroom…. Of course if harm came to this young lady, it would be President Trumps fault… Sorry left wing liberal idiots, you can’t have it both ways… nor do you have the right to place your “pawns” in harms way due to your ignorance.

          • therealworld

            That is in what they are asking. Their way means if you take your kids to a water park in the girls shower area there will be men and you are expected to be fine with it…

          • My country

            They already are in some schools . It was on the news where a college in Canada is allowing this . Two young girls were showering and a man came in filmed them and then put it all on the web . It ruined these young ladies lives . And guess what ? A camera in the hallway filmed in going in and out but . They have yet to find him . I guess if it’s ok to use the same shower it’s ok to film as long as it is a public school ! You think !

  • Devasahayam the Deplored

    To the CEOs of these corporations: do you have executive washrooms? Now, do you believe that every employee who works in the building should be allowed to use these? (on the latter, I doubt any of the CEOs would answer “yes” — as they certainly WON’t, for multiple reasons, want all-and-sundry employees traipsing in and through their offices to use the exec washrooms)

    If you answered “no” to the second, then why the heck do you believe that men should be allowed into women’s washrooms?!

  • ChuckW

    These companies value “equality”???? NOT. Or they are so blind they do not see that Illegitimate non-discrimination laws legislate in-equality. Because our republic was formed on the basis that Liberty (freedom) is a gift from God (not government), government may not deny Liberty. But that is precisely what it does when it enacts laws that prohibit “individual” discrimination. It “protects” the named group by denying all non-members of the group their right as individuals (persons and entities) TO discriminate. Discrimination, you see, is not a constitutional principle. To properly relate discrimination with the constitutional principle of Liberty, government must recognize that only “societal” discrimination (not “individual”) denies Liberty. Societal discrimination was the reality for Black People pre-1964 Civil Rights Law. Segregation laws denied Black People their individual Liberty to choose what water fountain, restroom, restaurant, etc. they could use. The important point is that the 1964 law gave Black People the Liberty they had been denied due to Societal (not just Individual) Discrimination. Subsequent non-discrimination laws that were not based on demonstrable “societal” discrimination are illegitimate because they deny Liberty, our constitutional right TO discriminate as individuals. They are inherently unequal.

    • Devasahayam the Deplored

      I daresay, if they claim they “value equality”, let them act on it by handing every company employee and temp-agency worker in their HQ buildings keys to the executive washroom, and letting them use it “freely” (given that these are usually single-unit, it obviously can lead to lines waiting).

    • RedRiverD

      Well said, VERY well said.
      And it should be VERY obvious that the courts do NOT have the “right” to make such a ruling for less than 1% of the population over the 99% of the population.

      • ChuckW

        You got it. But, really the courts generally follow given law don’t they? The problem is the law itself.

        • My2PenneysWorth

          lately, no the courts are making new laws as they see fit.
          finding rights in the constitution not there
          changing the wording of a law to make it constitutional
          using an amendment for purposes it was never meant to be used for
          using foreign laws to gauge a law as acceptable over the constitution

    • My2PenneysWorth

      I find it strange that the same people who say Clinton should be president because she had the majority of the votes are the same ones who thinks these minorities are more important than the majority

  • kimbi

    Why is this happening? For 0.03% of the population against the rest of us? What about Our comfort? Are we now going to have to bring our husbands to the bathroom with us?

    • My2PenneysWorth

      It started when homosexuals convinced the psychiatrists that homosexuality was normal and not a mental disorder
      they then had laws against sodomy and unnatural acts voided as unconstitutional because it violated their privacy
      then they used the 14th amendment, meant to protect newly freed slaves and their descendants, to demand their right to marry

      We were warned over and over again about the slippery slope and everyone just laughed at the people crying the warning

  • NinjaMicWZ

    People think this is about drag queens and manly “Stone Cold Butch Blues” kinda women, when it’s about clearly identifiable chud eunuch Shrek looking perverts masquerading as women, teen nerd kids who think they can just identify their way into the company of naked teenage girls in the shower room, and young children maligned by psychologists and sick parents being the cover Big Pedo uses to mingle the sexes in places without adult supervision in order to prematurely sexualize them and expedite their acquiescence to adult sexualization. It’s no coincidence that societal and moral breakdown is coalescing with all this, with the Pope giving molester priests forgiveness and no punishment, while Sweden essentially legalizes child marriage for the sake of primitive Islam followers coming in as migrants, while American culture inches towards the same to accommodate deep south American norms and the refugees they bring in by the hundreds of thousands, George Takei and other affluent or wealthy people represent “man boy love” with no consequence to their careers, and while the female SCOTUS appointed by Bill Clinton once tried to pass a bill that included lowering the age of consent to 12.

  • Bob101st

    Is it true Chris Como on CNN said something to the effect if a 12 year old girl did not want to see a man’s privates in a rest room or women’s locker room, then it may be the 12 year olds problem, or maybe her over protective father’s? Would someone please post if they know this to be true? Thanks.

    Ontario OPP Police report finding a man’s body in Lake Ontario near Toronto.
    The dead man’s name will not be released until his family has been notified.
    The victim apparently drowned due to excessive marijuana consumption.
    He was wearing black fishnet stockings, a red garter belt, a pink G-string, a strap-on dildo, purple lipstick, and a Trudeau for Prime Minister’ T-shirt.
    He also had a cucumber in his rectum.
    The police removed the Trudeau T-shirt to spare his family any unnecessary embarrassment.

    It is the best safe to have two separate bathrooms for men and women because the corporation’s reputation can be ruined their business and productivity. Having seen a lot of loosed low life employees peeking at each other in the same bathroom. It’s immorality practice! All have two bathrooms everywhere so why they brought up one bathroom for men or women. Some places have shown the sign of women and men one bathroom when vacant or unvacant locks or opens. Respect women’s comfortable zones.

    How can a person of any moral background agree with this,Homosexuals are immoral,it’s true you know it I know it and in the late of the night they know it.Thats why they push so hard to get accepted,Lets look at it this way,if their parents had been queers they would not be here,they use a word gay that was once used to be happy,everything they do is to be accepted.Queer is not a term I use here to insult because they need some mental health help,but queers are just unnatural,moral people that read this think back in your life when you did something you knew was wrong and when you lay down at nite how it comes to your mind and it bothers you,this is how they feel all the time until finally they just accept it in their minds as normal at this point it’s over for them.Remember when they were not accepted they felt ashamed and stayed quiet not because they were afraid they would be hurt they just did not want to be seen as immoral now out in the open many many people accept them and it makes us the moral people look like we are wrong,that’s what sin does makes the good look bad and no I am not a Christian.

Now I don’t recall these same companies protesting any of these practices. Does hypocrite apply here?

Liberty is not free but it does have authority (power) to protect our American society from domestic and foreign law breakers, criminals, illegal aliens, outlaws, agitators, haters, vandals, thieves, etc. Liberty has the rule of the laws to keep our country safe. ACLU is not interested in Liberty but they are interested in wide open freedom society as they wish to do as they please themselves. Look st Chicago and other cities! What’s good come out of ACLU?

    Well, just what is going to happen when one of the new world order hustlers decide when they get into the women’s room that they are now a male?? They may get traumatized if they confront a CC female and she feels threatened.
