Idaho governor signs law requiring students to use bathrooms based on biological sex

The law allows students to sue schools if they encounter members of the opposite sex in bathrooms or other private facilities.

The governor of Idaho recently signed a bill requiring students to use bathrooms and other facilities at school in accordance with biological sex.

SB 1100, “an act relating to protecting the privacy and safety of students in public schools,” was originally introduced on February 13 and signed into law by Republican Gov. Brad Little on March 24.

According to the bill, lawmakers found that “there are real and inherent differences between men and women” and that “every person has a natural right to privacy and safety in restrooms and changing facilities where such person might be in a partial or full state of undress in the presence of others.”

“Requiring students to share restrooms and changing facilities with members of the opposite biological sex generates potential embarrassment, shame, and psychological injury to students, as well as increasing the likelihood of sexual assault, molestation, rape, voyeurism, and exhibitionism.” (Read More Here)
