Parents OUTRAGED as "TransWoman" is Seen Showering in Women's Room.
Under the state's so called "Gender Neutral" bathroom law, people can use a bathroom, according to the gender they identify with.
Parents and supporters of water polo players at Palm Springs High School gathered in front of the Palm Springs Swim Center, to express their concerns over three girls, seeing who they describe as a "naked man" showering in the women's locker room.
"They were mortified, scared, and traumatized quite honestly. These girls don't have experience with the male physique," said Christine Foster, a mother of one of the players.
Foster says her daughter, Ashley, a 17-year-old senior, and two teammates, encountered the person taking a shower, when they entered the locker room, during a team practice session at the city pool.
"I think this individual is a predator, a predatory nature and found a loophole in the law with transgender issues,' said Foster.
LAKE MILLS, Iowa -- A man who hoped to get married in his hometown church in Lake Mills will not be able to.
Derek Harmon, who now lives in California, grew up in Lake Mills. He hoped to marry his partner, Jésus, at Salem Lutheran Church, just like his siblings who married their spouses.
But church-goers voted Sunday not to allow the same-sex couple to marry in the Evangelical Lutheran church, even though the ELCA as a denomination allows gay marriage.
A total of 103 people voted in favor of letting Harmon marry in the church, and 98 people voted against it. But the vote needed two-thirds approval to pass.
Harmon says he and his partner will now likely marry in California where "inclusiveness is embraced."
About 200 Azusa Pacific University students gathered in prayer and song Monday in response to the university board’s decision to reinstate a ban on LGBTQ relationships on campus.
Senior Autumn North led the students in song — “No Longer Slaves” by Bethel Music — to end the hourlong demonstration. While she said she does not identify as a member of the LGBTQ community, it was important to her to help show her peers that they are loved by the broader campus community.
The group repeated the song’s chorus several times: “I’m no longer a slave to fear. I am a child of God.”
In time for the Aug. 27 start of the fall semester and following months of discussions between students and university leaders, Azusa Pacific had removed a section from its student conduct policy that outlawed LGBTQ relationships on campus. The altered language referenced a standing ban on pre-marital sex but dropped any mention to orientation.
When the APU student newspaper published an article on Sept. 18 about the move, the 119-year-old university received some kudos but significantly more criticism, especially from Christian media outlets and pundits.

The slogan was widely criticised on social media as a recognised symbol of a "transphobic hate group".

A girl who called herself the sister of the transgender teen who used the toilet wrote on Facebook Wednesday:
“He knows he isn’t able to use the women’s bathroom cause he will get in trouble, he just chooses to anyways. The reason why they won’t let him use the women’s bathroom is because other girls won’t feel comfortable. Which is why he has a bathroom he can go to without being looked at differently but that doesn’t give the school a right to invade my brother’s privacy like that while in the stall SITTING ON THE TOILET!”
