Community Pool Takes Heat for Allowing Teen Girl to Go Topless Because She Claims to be a Boy

A pool in Iowa is taking heat for allowing a teenage girl to walk around topless because she claims to be a transgender boy.



A pool and aquatic center in Pella, Iowa, is taking heat for allowing a teenage girl to walk around nude from the waist up and exposing her breasts because she claims to be a transgender boy.

The girl caused a ruckus by entering the boys locker room and walking around half nude, according to the Iowa Standard:

The incident happened on June 16. According to two people at the aquatic center, the incident did indeed happen and the aquatic center policy allows it to happen. The assistant manager told The Iowa Standard the policy says that anyone can wear the clothing necessary in line with their gender identity rather than biological sex. The policy is set by the city council, according to the aquatic center’s assistant manager.

“When brought to the facility’s attention, they explained there was nothing they could do,” a resident of the town said. “That state law protects this biological female, allowing her to walk around indecently exposing herself to all the families enjoying the facility. The facility is afraid if they act and require her to cover herself, they will face legal backlash. I find it appalling that this would actually be state law.”

“If someone were to take a picture, it wouldn’t be viewed as some boy at the pool in his swim shorts,” the resident added. “It would be a topless photo of a biological female and it would be child pornography.”

The local paper added that the girl has also tried using the boy’s restroom in the past, attempting to urinate in the urinal even though she has a vagina.

The Pella Aquatic Center has no pubic rules to govern sexual behavior in its facilities.

“The Pella Aquatic Center is a family-friendly facility. Inappropriate behavior, language, or attire are not permitted and will be grounds for refusing admission or removal from the facility without a refund,” the center says on its website.

CDC Set to Make Major Change to Mask Policy as Delta Variant Spreads

One step forward, two steps back…



We were so close, weren’t we?  It has very much felt like the American people were on the precipice of pandemic peace in recent weeks, as restaurants and movie theaters and concert venues all began to open back up in earnest. But then the “delta” variant began to spread, having mutated out of the unvaccinated populations of the world, spreading faster and more vociferously than the strain we’d been battling for well over a year.  Now, thanks to a major uptick in transmission rates, the CDC is about to take a large step backward. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to recommend Tuesday that fully vaccinated people begin wearing masks indoors again in places with high Covid-19 transmission rates, according to people familiar with the matter. Federal health officials still believe fully vaccinated individuals represent a very small amount of transmission, according to the sources. Still, some vaccinated people could be carrying higher levels of the virus than previously understood and potentially transmit it to others, they said. The CDC is slated to hold a briefing at 3 p.m. ET on Tuesday. The weather had something to do with it, as well. The updated guidance comes ahead of the fall season, when the highly contagious delta variant is expected to cause another surge in new coronavirus cases and many large employers plan to bring workers back to the office. In mid-May, the CDC said fully vaccinated people didn’t need to wear masks in most settings, whether indoors or outdoors. The move is certainly not going to be a popular one in the United States, where the vaccination rate has essentially peaked, with nearly half the country having opted to forego the inoculation.

DeSantis Under Fire as Jacksonville Doc Pleads for COVID Help

But will the Sunshine State Governor be inclined to budge?



Florida has long been a bastion of freedom during the COVID-19 pandemic, and Governor Ron DeSantis has been a large part of the reason why. DeSantis has repeatedly shunned the possibility of trouncing freedom for security in the Sunshine State, exuding a sort of libertarian ethos on the subject of the coronavirus crisis.  Not only has he refused to enact any harsh COVID-related restrictions, but DeSantis has even gone so far as to pardon any Floridians who faced charges on account of such guidelines. But now, as cases rise all across the state of Florida, one doctor in Jacksonville has a wild request for his governor. The Duval County Medical Society Foundation president urged Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to declare a State of Emergency in regards to the spike in coronavirus cases in the state. “Is it time for Governor to declare a state of emergency/public health emergency in Florida regarding COVID-19 hospitalizations with what we are seeing here? Yes,” Dr. Sunil Joshi tweeted Monday afternoon. Joshi continued by saying hospitals need federal money and extra staff to deal with growing numbers of patients with COVID-19. “Our hospitals, our hospital staff, the administration and every ancillary service is being overwhelmed with COVID patients,” Joshi told First Coast News. “That peak is happening at a much, much more steeper rate than it did at any time last year, and that is overwhelming our system.” DeSantis is unlikely to act in such a way, however, having already staked his reputation on the idea that Florida will not succumb to fear in the face of the virus.
