A GRIMM Fairytale on Bathroom Etiquette and Safety

The story of Grimm v. Gloucester County School Board is a very sad fairytale. The question at the heart is, does a person’s feelings trump reality? Will the American people ignore the facts directly in front of them in favor of the delusion of a few? Do a person’s feelings supersede the law? Yes, a very Grimm fairytale indeed. 

In a 2-1 opinion published by the Fourth Circuit, a very simple question was asked.

At the heart of this appeal is whether equal protection and Title IX can protect transgender students from school bathroom policies that prohibit them from affirming their gender.


When the judges are referring to Title IX in this context, they mean Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C. § 1681(a).

No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance,

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C. § 1681(a)

It seems simple enough. Title IX says no one shall be discriminated against under any education program or activity receiving federal funds because of their sex.

1a: either of the two major forms of individuals that occur in many species and that are distinguished respectively as female or male, especially on the basis of their reproductive organs and structures

b: the sum of the structural, functional, and sometimes behavioral characteristics of organisms that distinguish males and females

c: the state of being male or female

Definition of sex – Merriam Webster Dictionary

Single-sex bathrooms are, by definition, based on sex, which is a physical attribute, as opposed to gender, which can be based on non-physical attributes.

a: SEX sense 1a the feminine gender

b: the behavioral, cultural, or psychological traits typically associated with one sex

Definition of gender – Merriam Webster Dictionary

So, the question should be quite simple. Can a law that protects against discrimination based on sex be used to force schools to allow students to use bathrooms based on what they think is their gender?

At the heart of this appeal is whether equal protection and Title IX can protect transgender students from school bathroom policies that prohibit them from affirming their gender. We join a growing consensus of courts in holding that the answer is resoundingly yes.



Notice, this court did not come to this decision based on the law but has decided to rewrite both the law and the dictionary based on the growing consensus” of other courts.


Now a twenty-year-old college student, Plaintiff-Appellee Gavin Grimm has spent the past five years litigating against the Gloucester County School Boards refusal to allow him as a transgender male to use the boys’ restrooms at Gloucester County High School.


Since I believe that language matters, I have to note that what the court calls a transgender male” is a female who thinks her body is wrong. Since she has the reproductive organs of a female, by the definition of sex, she is a female.

Grimms birth-assigned sex, or so-called biological sex,” is female, but his gender identity is male.


The linguistic legerdemain continues when the court referred to Grimms birth-assigned sex.” Its not her biological sex thats so-called,” but the term birth-assigned” thats a linguistic lie. No one on earth assigned a sex to Ms. Grimm; she was born that way. That she doesnt like that shes a girl doesnt change the fact that shes female.

Accommodation is NOT enough.

Beginning at the end of his freshman year, Grimm changed his first name to Gavin and expressed his male identity in all aspects of his life. After conversations with a school counselor and the high school principal, Gavin entered his sophomore year living fully as a boy.


Notice that Ms. Grimm changed her name, not her body. If all she has changed is her name, then she still has female reproductive organs. That means shes a girl in boys’ clothing, but if she wants to live as a horse, but that does not make her one.

At first, the school allowed him to use the boy’s bathrooms. But once word got out, the Gloucester County School Board (the Board”) faced intense backlash from parents, and ultimately adopted a policy under which students could only use restrooms matching their biological gender.”


While the school didnt seem to care that a girl was using the boy’s bathroom, it appears a significant number of parents did. This goes to show one of the most overlooked problems with our nations fascination with treating facts as inconvenient truths when it comes to sex. This court seems concerned with the feelings” of Ms. Grimm, but shows absolutely no concern for the other students they want to forcibly impose Ms. Grimms delusion upon.

While the court doesnt seem to care about the majority of students, the school board attempted to come to some reasonable accommodation.

The Board built single-stall restrooms as an alternative” for students with gender identity issues.” Grimm suffered from stigma, urinary tract infections from bathroom avoidance, and from suicidal thoughts that led to hospitalization.


In an effort to accommodate all sides, the school built single-stall restrooms. That way, Ms. Grimm, and anyone else with gender identity issues” could use the restroom without infringing on the rights of the rest of the school. The court claims that Ms. Grimm suffered from stigma” from using the single-stall restrooms. According to the opinion, thats not exactly true:

Moreover, the single-stall restrooms made Grimm feel stigmatized and isolated.”


In the opinion, not one example is given of someone stigmatizing Ms. Grimm for using the single-stall restroom. This court has placed the feelings of Ms. Grimm above both the law and the rights of the other students. And as for her unwillingness to use a restroom that did not stigmatize” the other students leading to urinary tract infections, that was her choice. Im not saying it was a wise choice, but the school did make a reasonable accommodation of Ms. Grimms desire to live as a boy. But this wasnt good enough for her. She demanded that the school and everyone else not only accommodate her delusion, but embrace it as if her feelings could change reality itself. The fact that Ms. Grimm suffered from suicidal thoughts because she thought that her body was wrong shows this was not a physical problem but a mental one. However, rather than seeking assistance, Ms. Grimm has decided to sue the school board to force everyone else to join her in rejecting reality and substituting her preferences for science-based facts. In doing so, Ms. Grimm is claiming that her desire to impose her will on the rest of the world supersedes everyone elses rights. She expects reality itself to bend to her wishes, and apparently does not care what damage must be done to make that happen. And the courts of Virginia agreed with her.

Nevertheless, he persevered in his transition; he underwent chest reconstruction surgery, received a state-court order stating that he is male, and amended his birth certificate to accurately reflect his gender. But when he provided the school with his new documentation, the Board refused to amend his school records.


In pursuit of this mental confusion, Ms. Grimm amputated her breasts and then got a court in Virginia to lie for her. Meanwhile, this order continued the lie by ordering the state to amend her birth certificate to accurately reflect his gender.” First of all, the Commonwealth of Virginia does not record gender on birth certificates; it lists sex. And since, by dictionary definition, Ms. Grimms sex is female, the state court ordered the Virginia Department of Health to lie on an official state form. By conflating sex with gender, this court not only furthers the state-court lie but creates a lie of its own. And now, when the Gloucester County School Board refused to participate in the lie, they are taken to court and ordered to lie and infringe on the rights of the vast majority of its students by two judges who not only have a problem with the truth, they also have a problem following the law.

Ms. Grimm is claiming that by using scientifically provable facts, the Gloucester County School Board is violating the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

nor shall any State … deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

U.S. Constitution, Amendment XIV

Of course, violating the Equal Protection Clause is exactly what Ms. Grimm is asking the school board to do. The law clearly states that she cannot be discriminated against based on sex, but she wants the right to discriminate against boys who do not wish to use the bathroom in front of a girl. She also claims that not affirming her delusion that she is a boy constitutes discrimination based on sex, yet she is asking the school to discriminate against the boys who do not wish to share a bathroom with a girl. She is also claiming that the fact that the school board refused to lie for her also violates equal protection and Title IX. Not only has the Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit committed a gross violation of their oaths and judicial ethics by placing their opinions above the law, but they also have themselves violated equal protection by applying Title IX differently based on the feelings of someone before their court.

By this point, there may be some of you wondering why I referred to the plaintiff as Ms. Grimm throughout this article. My intention is not to harm or shame her in any way. However, I do not think it is caring or helpful to perpetuate a lie simply to soothe someones feelings. I do not hold any animosity against Ms. Grimm, nor do I wish her ill no matter how she wishes to live her life.

If we live in a free country, then Ms. Grimm should be allowed to live her life as she sees fit until she infringes on the rights of others. So its Ms. Grimms infringement on the rights of others with which I have an issue. If she wishes to live her life based on how she feels, either she allows others to do so as well, or she is a liar and a hypocrite. By pretending objective truth does not exist and supporting her lie, we do not help Ms. Grimm. Rather we condemn her to a life of pain, suffering, and possibly more suicidal thoughts. This is not merely my opinion, but the results of studies of those who have gone through gender transition. Personally, I would rather see Ms. Grimm get the help she needs to live with the reality that she is a girl. If she wishes to dress like a boy and act like a boy, thats her choice. Expecting the mutilation of her body to bring peace to her life, though, is a fools errand I would council Ms. Grimm against pursuing.

It is sad that it has come to no bathroom safety. Entertainers, media, educators, judges and other officials seem to be telling Americans they must stand with the lifestyles of feces, diseases, death, pornography, men raping boys, called man/boy love in homosexual circles and every vile, sexual lifestyle. They tell all they must stand with gay parades which are beyond wicked and where gays and pedophiles march together for rights and almost completely nude and are lewd in behavior. And now this gang also stands with bestiality—sex with animals. Frank Kameny, a major homosexual activist, stated when alive, “There is no such thing as sexual perversion” and encouraged sex with animals. He believed bestiality is fine, “as long as the animal doesn’t mind.” And now many democrat/progressives have no problem declaring bestiality is good.

Today too many stand with what is lewd, vile, and debaucherous. To say everyone must stand with 1.6% of the population of America who engage in queer lifestyles and whatever else is beyond any moral reasoning.

Teen Vogue editorial staff encourages people to have sex with toddlers. Yes, babies. An article states they can consent to sex. The publication encourages the removal of prudishness and all that is morally decent. It continually promotes homosexuality. The staff of this magazine should be given the judicial electric chair for all the lives it snuffs out and all the innocence robbed. 

Democratic primary candidate Jerome Segal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerome_Segal for this coming 2018 election told readers that “looking at pictures of naked children” and “watching videos of two men having a three-way with a dog” is normal, healthy behavior.”

The progressive democrats stand with ACLU. They are the party of the ACLU and ACLU lawyers work to obtain rights for pedophiles and gays, which has been made clearly visible on their website for years. http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=95942&page=1 They have always been determined to remove rights from Christians. More and more people, including Planned Parenthood, stand with people who rape children and will not report it. At Planned Parenthood’s website, they tell parents to teach sex to their children as soon as they are born and to make sure they are sexually playing with themselves as tiny children. Planned Parenthood wants to murder as many children as possible before they are born for filthy lucre sake and use those children who are not murdered as sex toys right after birth.

Many democrats stand with child rape today and its trafficking. How long will it be before citizens are arrested for not approving of child rape, with the consideration of the fact, 86 percent of pedophiles are gay according to investigations?

Former President Obama did not care about staff having child porn on their computers. Never once did he reprove or take corrective action nor did any democrat. https://www.americasfreedomfighters.com/2016/12/10/child-porn-linked-obama/


NYPD was disgusted with Obama not allowing them to release their investigation: “The Clinton campaign and its associates sought out underage children for ‘entertainment’ at a hot tub party and made strange references to ‘hot dogs’ and ‘Beanie Babies’ in emails which may contain code for pedophilia or other illegal activities, according to investigative researchers.”

Both Hillary and Bill flew to Jeffrey Epstein’s sex slavery island where minors were held captive. Records reveal Bill was flown there 26 times.

Democrats claim to be liberal; yet, if people do not fit within their tiny, squeezing, box of political correctness, they hate them with a vengeance.

“Twentynine percent of children of homosexual parents have been specifically subjected to sexual molestation by their homosexual parents.” Do liberals care? Of course not! And governments persecute anyone who sees this as wrong.

I will stand on the lifestyle of life where there are no sexual diseases, death by them, etc, which equates to, two virgins coming together, a man and a woman, in natural marriage for life, in total commitment to moral decency; whereby their children are raised in a happy, virtuous setting.

Once upon a time in our nation, actually not that long ago, chastity, modesty, purity, innocence, being undefiled, offering pure speech, etc, were considered quality traits. The name “Prudence” was a common name. You see, I stand on historical correctness, the time when most Americans married as virgins. And AIDS did not exist. 

Today, we as taxpayers contribute more than $16 billion a year into treatments for these sexual deviant infections and most of them are incurable, and they snatch from everyone’s pocketbook liberally, all in the name of sinful fun. How sad that our legislators bend to the lifestyles of feces, diseases and death with no regard for hard working taxpayers. And one homosexual and bisexual disease, Shigella, is growing in the general public arena, being mainly attributed to homosexuals and their worship of feces and all they perform with feces and spreading it. http://factsaboutyouth.com/posts/male-homosexual-behavior/

Many fatal homosexual infections are caused by the entry of feces into the bloodstream, including Shigellosis. It is interesting how it is completely similar to Norovirus or Norwalk which originates through fecal matter and was first detected in 1968. A new, harsher strain of Norovirus is the Sydney strain, first detected in 2012.

Truth be told, 15-24 year-olds, “Some of whom graduated from Obama’s school of sexual irresponsibility, accounted for more than 60 percent of chlamydia and half of all gonorrhea diagnoses.” California came in first in the competition in overall cases of STDs this year, they have thrown comprehensive sex-ed at America’s citizens and now the government admitted it has been a billion-dollar failure at teen pregnancy prevention. God’s abstinence program till marriage is the only answer. And I personally believe in chaperone dating, the old-fashioned way or simply courting on the front porch.

Suicide is prominent among those who engage in the lifestyle of death and those who become bound in other types of promiscuity.

People who undergo sex change radical surgeries are “19 times more likely” to commit suicide than the national average. Yet, progressive democrats and liberal republicans desire to give them what they want using our taxpayer money so the sexually deviant do not have to spend a penny of their own to defy God and His holy ways. God did create them male and female. (Genesis 1:27) 

Matthew 19:4f—“And He (Jesus Christ) answered and said, Have ye not read, that He (God) who made them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh? So that they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

More facts: “Each year, one out of every three gay, lesbian or bisexual students in the San Francisco Unified School District reportedly, attempts suicide. For transgender students, that number jumps to nearly one in two.” Promiscuous sex leads to suicide among our young: “Sexually active girls are nearly three times more likely to attempt suicide than girls who are pure.”

“Sexually active teenage boys are eight times more likely to attempt suicide than boys who are pure.” (Please read Proverbs chapter 7 in the Bible or online)

Why not warn, against following the crowd in sinful activity that produces guilt, bondage, depression, diseases, and death? This is part of loving one another. True love stands on a healthy life and sweet innocence. Why promote this lifestyle of feces, diseases and death—the homosexual agenda?

Why not promote two virgins coming together, male and female, in natural, faithful marriage where no sexual diseases exist?

Knowing how homosexuality is being promoted and Christians hated, I can logically inquire, how long will it be before natural families are arrested? I am referring to moms, dads and children being placed in some type of prison camps for enjoying God’s plan for the family? This would appease homosexuals who hate natural marriage and want it removed from society. It is all about pleasing people who are involved in the lifestyles of feces, diseases and death. One prominent gay activist stated those who stand for natural marriage should be incarcerated.

“All churches who condemn us will be close … We shall sodomize your sons … We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups…” (Quote by homosexual leader Michael Bronski) 

Over 99.99% of the people who have ever lived on the earth, now own a criminal history for believing in natural marriage and only natural marriage, according to progressive, liberal democrats. Not until President Obama fought for homosexual marriage was it legalized, thus making it illegal to stand only for natural marriage. All people of history should have been incarcerated, including all presidents, up till Obama (though Obama is in a natural marriage) for committing the horrendous crime of believing in only natural marriage, whereby children are born and society moves into the future. 

And do not forget the wicked ways of homosexuals who are not green and cannot reproduce naturally. They force those who comply with the natural birth of children to hand over children to them. They have implemented laws whereby adoption agencies cannot ensure natural couples have adoption rights only. This is insanity and they expect everyone to comply to this non-green, child-snatching conspiracy. It is all about lies, deception and destroying all things moral and upright.

Recently, I was in the San Francisco airport for a layover and a man was using the ladies’ restroom! Another woman and I were quite concerned and shocked! You can be arrested for complaining in this insane, democrat world which is all about serving the sexually deviant who can peak between the stalls. One lady said she was in a restroom and the man walked all around where the stalls with slits were. And the women changing their babies hid them from his predator eyes. Remember when women were safe in restrooms?

It is interesting, half of Muslim bakeries will not bake cakes for homosexuals; yet, homosexuals never targeted them nor spoke against Muslims before the homosexual bar terrorist attack in Orlando. They know in Muslim countries, homosexuals are murdered without question. Yet, never have we witnessed a homosexual attempt to sue anyone of the Islamic belief system for their known deadly hatred for homosexuals. Of course, this is because the agenda has been silencing Christians who hold to moral uprightness and therefore they do not desire to silence their fellow Marxist Muslims.
