The Schrammie: Evergreen administrators have a lot to learn

Just what is that behind curtain number one?

Certainly nothing most parents would want to trade for on "Let's Make a Deal."

So if officials at Evergreen State College would just add a dash of common sense to their inexplicable policies, I'd like them to come on down.

Administrators at Evergreen continue to insist that state law requires them to put biological males into women's locker rooms, showers and saunas, so long as said males declare that they identify themselves as female.

Mind you, there are also minors who use the Evergreen facilities; meaning female children must contend with adult men with, shall we say, male "equipment," traipsing about with nary a thought given to whether they may actually be pedophiles and/or perverts.

Look, I am not without understanding for transgendered individuals.

But in terms of criteria, there has got to be more than just a simple declaration that a guy identifies as a woman.

Subjecting women and girls to guys who may want nothing more than seeing and being seen just isn't right.

The administrators at Evergreen may have all sorts of degrees in higher education, but they still have a lot to learn.

And putting women and girls together with naked guys and then hiding behind what they term "non-discrimination" is a lesson in waiting.

Which is why they need to take a bow, because this "Schrammie" is for them.
