The word liberal, itself, originally meant one who defends liberty. Liberal gun laws, for example, would refer to the liberty to own guns.
Civil rights is another example of a term misappropriated by the left for the express purpose of deception.
What exactly does the term literally mean? The right to be civil? The right to be treated with civility?
Were that the case, the argument could be made that Jim Crow laws imposed civil rights in that they enforced the rights of white Southerns to be treated with civility; that is, they contained black crime and violence.
Enter a new civil right.
In this case it is the right of a biological teen boy to get naked in a girls' locker room while his female classmates are showering in the nude.
That's a right?! That's considered civil?!
The media also absconded the word her when describing him.
He was a student in a Chicago high school. A federal complaint was filed because he wanted to be a her and shower with girls.
The school attempted to apply a separate but equal compromise by allowing him to shower in the girls' locker room, but in a private stall.
Pinhead liberals decried that compromise as an affront to his civil rights and the U.S. Dept. of Education agreed with the pinheads.
• What to do?
First we must acknowledge that freedom of association is the foundational civil right.
If female students and their parents wish not to associate with a naked boy pretending to be a girl in the locker room, they have the right.
If Christian bakers wish not to bake cakes for homosexuals, they have that right.
If blacks wish to form race-based exclusive affinity groups, they have that right.
If white property owners wish to include a covenant upon selling their property to restrict future ownership to other whites, they have that right.
Second we must get government out of education.
Public schools -- properly called government schools -- constitute the nation's largest welfare program. What's more, government schools act as surrogate parents. In some states, including Indiana, parents are forced by law to submit their children to the government as early as kindergarten. In Illinois parents are forced by law to submit their teenage daughters to government schools where they are required to take classes in which they must get naked in the presence of nude males.
It's not civil. It's not right.

Iinois' largest high school district violated federal law by barring a transgender student from using the girls' locker room, authorities concluded Monday.
The U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights spent nearly two years investigating Palatine-based Township High School District 211 and found "a preponderance of evidence" that school officials did not comply with Title IX, the federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex.
The student, who has identified as a girl for a number of years, filed a complaint with the Office for Civil Rights in late 2013 after she was denied unrestricted access to the girls' locker room. District and federal officials negotiated for months, and a solution appeared imminent as recently as last week, when the district put up privacy curtains in the locker room.
But talks stalled after school officials said the student would be required to use the private area, as opposed to offering her a choice to use it. Although the student said she intends to use the private area or a locker room bathroom stall to change, the stipulation constitutes "blatant discrimination," said John Knight, director of the LGBT and AIDS Project at ACLU of Illinois, which is representing the student.
"It's not voluntary, it's mandatory for her," Knight said. "It's one thing to say to all the girls, 'You can choose if you want some extra privacy,' but it's another thing to say, 'You, and you alone, must use them.' That sends a pretty strong signal to her that she's not accepted and the district does not see her as girl."
For the student at the center of the federal complaint and all other transgender students at the district's five high schools, the staff changes their names, genders and pronouns on school records. Transgender students also are allowed to use the bathrooms of their identified gender and play on the sports team of that gender, school officials said.
But officials drew the line at the locker room, citing the privacy rights of the other 12,000-plus students in the district. As a compromise, the district installed four privacy curtains in unused areas of the locker room and another one around the shower, but because the district would compel the student to use them, federal officials deemed the solution insufficient.
The dispute highlights a controversy that a growing number of school districts face as they struggle with an issue that few parents of today's teens encountered. The Department of Education has settled two similar allegations of discrimination of transgender students in California, with both districts eventually agreeing to allow the students to use female-designated facilities.
