'Enormous Victory for Transgender Students' as SCOTUS Declines to Hear Challenge to Inclusive Bathroom Policy

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

LGBTQ individuals and rights groups celebrated Tuesday as the U.S. Supreme Court left in place a lower court ruling in favor of a Pennsylvania school district's policy to allow trans students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity.

Supreme Court Upholds Indiana Law Requiring Fetal Remains Be Buried Or Cremated

The court also refused to hear a question regarding the state’s attempt to ban abortions based on a fetus’ race, disability or gender.

Amazing how supposedly smart or even intelligent people can be so ignorant of the issues facing so many people. These “justices” may know law cases, but between their ideological loyalty (which they deny having) and outright ignorance on other topics…yech… it’s a miracle they declined to hear this trans rights case. I look forward to hearing the real reasons and who “voted” what way.

It’s nice to hear good news once in a while.

Yes, it sure is. The courts got this one right.

Yes Supreme Court—sometimes doing nothing ----really is everything.
Thank you for behaving like human beings on this one. This helps with the concept of forming that, " More Perfect Union."
And as for abortion, remember, you 2 newest judges, you both have teen aged daughters–or soon to be teens, so please don’t wish upon other’s daughters what you would hate for your own.

What is it with these fucking Christians? They cry about Sharia law in Muslim countries but want to implement their holy version of Sharia law here in the U.S.

they’re emotionally damaged. We’ll never fix this until we accept that, and start acting accordingly

Yay, great… Truly. But as an aside, I wish Americans would stop their practice of using acronyms like POTUS and SCROTUS - errr… I mean SCOTUS. These “efficiency” tools read rather poorly…

Hardly that big of a victory. The SCOTUS declined to review the case. They may well have done so only to wait for a state law dictating this question and then weigh in in favor of states rights to decide either way, thus further splitting the country. That’s my suspicion.

Do you really believe this Supreme Court would “get something right” or “support human rights” if that wasn’t what the corporate agenda wanted? Whose rights are being defended? Really, though, there may not be a fix to this issue without adding a third bathroom (“all genders”) where there used to be two.

This SCOTUS decision is not a good one for us, or anyone for that matter. This is what seriously damages our credibility on the Left, and has a lot to do with Trump having been elected. The “Equality Act” is of similar nature. While anyone has a right to hold LGBTQ, Baptist, Republican, or any other beliefs, they do not have a right to use the law to impose their beliefs on others.
The effects of unconstitutional laws such as these is to create sexual harasssment of those who do not agree with LGBT beliefs. One often overlooked issue is the pedophile portion of the LGBT spectrum, addressed by activists be means of denialism. We need to be focusing on important economic and environmental issues rather than siding with those attacking religious people with in- your- face opinions about sexuality
