House Passes Bill Forcing Schools To Let Biological Males Into Girls’ Restrooms

Signs for men's and women's toilets

The U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass a bill that would grant biological males who adopt the “appearance” or “mannerisms” of a female or claim to identify as females access to the girls’ “restroom,” “locker room,” and “dressing room.”

The bill, named “The Equality Act,” creates a federal prohibition on discrimination based on “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” under the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

The bill defines “gender identity” to include a person’s “appearance” or “mannerisms” in addition to, and regardless of, their “gender identity.”

Section 1101 of the bill is entitled “Definitions and Rules.” Subsection (a)(2) defines “Gender Identity” as “the gender-related identity, appearance, mannerisms, or other gender-related characteristics of an individual regardless of the individual’s designated sex at birth.”

The bill goes on to say: “(with respect to gender identity) an individual shall not be denied access to a shared facility, including a restroom, a locker room, and a dressing room, that is in accordance with the individual’s gender identity.”

The House passed the bill by a vote of 224 to 206, with two members not voting.
