Someone needs to remind the YMCA in Santee, California (San Diego), that the “C” stands for “Christian.” It sounds as if the people running it no longer identify as Christian.
This story blew up after 17-year-old Rebecca Phillips complained to the City Council that she was shocked and frightened when a naked man walked through the YMCA women’s locker facilities while she was showering, exposing his male genitalia. She said when she reported this to YMCA staffers, they shamed her as a transphobic bigot because the naked man in the showers with teenage girls “identified” as female, or claimed to, which is all that the state of California requires under state law (granted, they do have some justification for claiming that they couldn’t do anything about it because…California.)
Other blue states have gone equally insane, like Washington, where the Port Townsend YMCA banned an 80-year-old woman for complaining that a biological male was showering next to her.
The Santee YMCA insisted that it was following all the laws and the guidance of “experts.” Correction: people who “identify” as experts. Personally, I think if you can’t tell the difference between a woman and a naked man, and can’t see anything wrong with letting naked men invade women’s bathrooms and locker rooms where underage girls are showering, then you aren’t an expert in anything other than possibly brain damage.
