    Supreme Court blocks ruling that allowed transgender Virginia student to use boys' ba

    So the Supreme Court granted a stay of the Virgina ruling so for now girls don't have to share with boys and vice-versa. But Supreme hasn't decided to take it up yet. At least, that's what is IMO. "Isolated from his peers."............. aren't "his peers" all high school students in that school? Is "peers" another PC term?

    The Supreme Court signaled in an order Wednesday that it is highly likely to grapple with the issue of transgender bathrooms in its coming term.

    Acting on a 5-3 vote, the justices put on hold a groundbreaking court ruling requiring a Virginia school district to accommodate a transgender high school student’s request to use the boys’ bathroom.

    It’s the first time the high court has shown interest in the transgender bathroom issue, which has prompted nearly half of states to sue the Obama administration over its interpretation of federal civil rights law. The Justice and Education Departments have said transgender students are offered sweeping civil rights protections under federal law, including their right to access bathrooms and locker rooms in alignment with their gender identity.

    The American Civil Liberties Union is representing student Gavin Grimm in the case. Senior staff attorney Joshua Block said, “We are disappointed that the court has issued a stay and that Gavin will have to begin another school year isolated from his peers and stigmatized by the Gloucester County school board just because he’s a boy who is transgender. We remain hopeful that Gavin will ultimately prevail.”

    Francisco Negrón, general counsel and associate executive director of legal advocacy at the National School Boards Association, said the high court eventually will have to resolve the issue of transgender bathroom access.

    "A quick court resolution would be a welcome thing," he said, as schools and districts are struggling with conflicting messages and policies from the federal government, states, districts and court cases.

    It'll be interesting to see what happens in September when they revisit it. Somebody somewhere is going to be pissed over the decision.

    Maybe they meant "isolated from his pee-ers" but it was auto-corrected?
