Parents alarmed as California High School unveils “all kinds” locker room

Parents in the Long Beach, Calif., Unified School District were alarmed after the district unveiled plans to build a locker room to allow teens of both sexes to shower and dress together.

The district has a long history of promoting the gay agenda, but Wilson High School parents were not prepared for the school to impose an all-gender locker room on students.

In its proposal for “Measure E”, the district celebrated plans for a locker room for all genders, saying it would “create facilities for all. And, according to the Wilson School Journal, “the instructor said it is created as” a safe space for people who might otherwise be uncomfortable. “

Wilson’s deputy manager Guillermo Jimenez announced the new facility that will allow boys and girls to shower and dress together in the same room in an email to parents.

Parents and guardians are invited to participate in a virtual community meeting on Tuesday, November 30 at 6 p.m. to learn more about the new aquatic center and inclusive locker rooms coming to Wilson High School in the fall of 2023. Construction will begin next summer.

The Inclusive Facilities of the Long Beach Unified School District are spaces that serve students with disabilities, students of all gender identities and expressions, and students who desire privacy for a number of reasons. The new Wilson Aquatic Center will include a changing room open to all.

LBUSD facilities staff will share information about the new aquatic center, including details on locker room security and privacy features. To participate in the November 30 meeting, please visit the District YouTube channel at LBSchools.net/YouTube or click here.

Parents will have the opportunity to ask questions during the meeting. If you would like to submit questions prior to the meeting, please email schoolbonds@lbschools.net.

Thank you for your participation and support.

The Wilson speaker The article noted that LBUSD member Shawn Abbate told attendees during a focus group PowerPoint presentation: “Privacy is a concern for many students facing the prospect of communal showers and large undifferentiated changing rooms. It would appear that most individuals – regardless of their gender identity and expression – do not want to change in the open air or bathe in gang showers. “

But parents weren’t comfortable with the idea of ​​boys and girls mingling in various states of undressing in a school locker room. At least one parent was concerned that a sexual assault could occur in such a facility.
