What About the Bathroom Issue?

July 14

The Kansas City Star reported that the University of Kansas is one of a handful of area colleges and universities that designated dorm space exclusively for students who identify somewhere along the LGBTQ+ spectrum. Family Policy Alliance of Kansas is the leading advocate for truth about human sexuality in the state, so the reporter called me seeking comment on the decision.

Our position is unwavering… we won’t affirm anything contrary to God’s design for human sexuality, but I’ll admit, I was surprised by the news. Given everything we know about higher education in America today – and KU specifically – it wouldn’t have surprised me if the university had opened all of their dorms based on “gender identity.”

The fact that a university that celebrates every radical, revisionist, anti-biblical idea you can imagine thought better than to completely overturn the commonsense idea that men and women are different, violating the privacy rights and compromising the safety of their students, tells me these are powerful truths that won’t easily be done away with.

With your continued support, Family Policy Alliance of Kansas won’t let them.

In fact—we are hard at work today ensuring truth about human sexuality is reflected in our public schools. We’ve been hearing from parents across our state, wondering what they should do about the “bathroom and locker room issue” in their schools. We think the answer is very simple:  Our schools have a responsibility to protect the privacy and safety of our students. So, with your help, we are working with legislators to advance the Kansas Student Privacy Act in 2018. This important bill provides a fair, commonsense solution. It protects the privacy and safety of all students by making sure areas like multiple-occupancy locker rooms and bathrooms are separated by sex, while also requiring schools to provide accommodations for those who request one.

Will you please provide your most generous support today to ensure that we can advance your values on behalf of our children? Would you also take a moment to forward this e-mail to your friends and let them know that Family Policy Alliance of Kansas is standing up for all our children — yours and mine.

As always, thank you for your ongoing support of our work. We couldn’t do it without you.
