Kansas (USA)

Legislators in Kansas introduced a pair of bills that would define access to bathrooms, locker rooms, and other sex-segregated facilities in public schools (including public universities) on the basis of sex, defined as “the physical condition of being male or female, which is determined by a person’s chromosomes, and is identified at birth by a person’s anatomy.”  The proposed legislation also entitles any student who encounters someone in a space not designated for that person’s sex to $2,500 in damages from the school, plus “monetary damages for all psychological, emotional and physical harm suffered as a result of a violation of this section.”  If students who identify as transgender request alternate accommodations, the bill allows schools to provide “access to single-stall bathrooms; access to unisex bathrooms; or controlled use of faculty bathrooms, locker rooms, or shower rooms.”
