When is indecent exposure, not indecent exposure? When it involves a girl’s high school locker room and a naked man identifying as a woman.
California Penal Code 314 PC prohibits the sex crime of “indecent exposure” . . . which means willfully exposing your genitals to someone else, motivated by a desire to sexually gratify yourself or offend the other person.
A man described as a Hispanic or Middle Eastern, approximately 18 to 25 years of age, with dark-colored hair and a beard has walked into the girls locker room at Moorpark High School and exposed himself in the girls’ locker room on at least two occasions.
In Moorpark, California, a dark-haired man, 18-25, entered the girl’s locker room, “took off his clothes and just stood at the back of the room, according to a news release from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office.” A security camera captured a video of “the man walking away from the girls’ locker room”.
In a defense of President Obama’s order compelling schools to allow access to restrooms on the basis of gender identity, the Charlotte Observer editorial board compared the discomfort of school-aged girls seeing male genitalia in locker rooms to the discomfort of white people being around black people in post-segregation America.
“This is what the Obama administration nudged the rest of the country toward Friday,” the editorial said. “Yes, the thought of male genitalia in girls’ locker rooms — and vice versa — might be distressing to some. But the battle for equality has always been in part about overcoming discomfort — with blacks sharing facilities, with gays sharing marriage — then realizing it was not nearly so awful as some people imagined.”
