The Albuquerque Journal reports that:

A national group of “radical feminists” more commonly associated with fights for abortion and gay rights has filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of two Albuquerque women they say are at risk of greater violence, discomfort and oppression because of transgender policies in public schools.

The suit seeks to block federal guidelines issued in May 2016 that instruct schools to allow transgender people to use bathroom and school facilities aligned with their self-identified gender instead of their genitalia.

The group, Women’s Liberation Front, or WoLF, filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque on Thursday saying two of its New Mexico members who are identified in the court documents as “AB and AB’s mother” have a “well-founded fear” they will have to “share such facilities with people who are biologically male” and that puts them at “imminent, traceable” risk.

“The reinterpretation of ‘sex’ to include ‘gender identity’ also means that girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms must be opened up to any male who ‘identifies’ as female,” the group says on its website.

And in the suit, the group says “as a female, she is more vulnerable to assault or rape (including impregnation) when she is in isolated or closed areas with men.”

WoLF spokeswoman and board member Kara Dansky said there are “many, many” news reports of women being assaulted in bathrooms by men dressed as women….

The solution to the fear and risk of transwomen in bathrooms is to block the federal guidelines or alter them, Dansky said Friday in a phone interview from New York.

Blocking them would return public schools to using male- and female-only facilities, presumably based on genitalia, though Dansky said her group doesn’t “talk about it in terms of genitalia.”

Altering the guidelines, she said, could introduce other options, including requiring three bathroom and facility spaces, one for males, one for females and one open or neutral facility….

“First and foremost, we think the whole concept of gender identity is problematic and has not been sufficiently studied to justify the legal protection,” Dansky said. “We know that biological sex is grounded in science.”

On this note, WoLF is in line with groups it is often at odds with on other social issues.

The Albuquerque Public Schools board’s most conservative member, Peggy Muller-Aragón, has been the most vocal critic of allowing transgender people to use facilities different than their genitalia.
