Katherine Svensen says transgender students would have to be castrated in order to use restrooms that fit their identities. Svensen says for Delta County to have the enlightened view other school districts in the country have had, “there would have to be castration.”

“I would like to pass out something that shows people what is going on in the rest of the country. Massachusetts and California have passed laws relating to calling a student, irrespective of his biological gender, letting him perform as the gender he thinks he is, or she is, and I want to emphasize, and they’re actually talking about joining girls sports teams going in the girls locker rooms and bathrooms, and I just want to emphasize not in this district. Not until the plumbing’s changed. There would have to be castration in order to pass something like that around here.”
