Sausage in the Locker Room
That’s right. There is sausage in the locker room, for lack of a better term.
Parents are upset because the locker room and surrounding facilities are used by a high school swim club and a children’s swim academy. And one 17-year-old girl has already been traumatized by the “unexpected dangler.” Her mother filed a police report shortly after the indecent exposure.
Unfortunately, the college’s hands are tied since state law forbids discrimination based on issues of gender identity. And the sausage in question continues to drift freely through the sauna, the showers and every other corner of the locker room.
Privacy curtains are going to be installed, according to college officials, but that’s about it. So for now, it looks like parents simply need to explain to their kids how someone who looks like a woman could possess a twig and berries.
I’d like to be a fly on the wall for that conversation!
