Fallout continues from the Obama Administration’s “guidelines” last month instructing schools and universities to let biological males who claim to be female use the girls’ restrooms, locker rooms, and similar facilities–and vice versa.

Our friends at the Heritage Foundation have written a column highlighting six different instances in which men disguised themselves as women in order to access women’s restrooms.

The Daily Signal writes,

The risk to the privacy and safety of women and girls is real. There have been numerous cases in recent years of men either cross-dressing or claiming to be transgender in order to access women’s bathrooms and locker rooms for inappropriate purposes.

The simple fact of the matter is we must protect children from people who would abuse laws and policies like the Obama Administration’s May 13 “guidelines.” We cannot place the interests and desires of adults over the privacy and safety of children.
