    Surge Summary: An elderly Washington State woman objects to a man in a YMCA woman’s changing area – and she is ejected from the facility because of it.

    by The Ruth Institute

    An 80-year-old woman in Port Townsend, Washington, has been permanently banned from the local YMCA for objecting to a man in a woman’s swimsuit in the ladies shower and changing rooms.

    “This is an outrage,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. “An 80-year-old woman who has used the pool for decades gets banned from the facility while the male employee who calls himself Clementine is allowed to be in the women’s locker room with little girls.”

    On July 26, while showering after a swim, Julie Jaman heard a male voice in the changing room. Although she was naked and wet, she confronted Clementine Adams, a male first-year college student and YMCA employee who says he’s a woman. Concerned for the safety of the girls, Jaman asked him to leave.

    Instead, other Y employees appeared who charged Jaman with bigotry and trans-phobia. They tried to have her arrested. Officials at the Y ordered the elderly woman to depart and never return.

    The YMCA’s official statement about the incident says: “In addition to the universal changing rooms, there are a men’s and women’s locker rooms provided with private changing areas as well as showers with curtains at the pool. The Y operates in accordance with state law that gives people the right to access the locker rooms, changing rooms, and bathrooms that aligns with their gender identity, per WAC 162-32-060.”

    Morse noted: “The issue is who has to give way? Ms. Jaman and little girls were in the locker room they presumed was for females only. Unbeknownst to them, this space had become a ‘universal changing room.’ Why? Because the male employee who calls himself Clementine chose to be in that space. Evidently, it is the responsibility of females to retreat to the ‘private’ areas at a moment’s notice.”

    “Such incidents illustrate the power of the Sexual State at work. The YMCA operates the pool in partnership with the City of Port Townsend. The policy that banned Ms. Jaman permanently from the pool implements a Washington state statute.”

    Morse charged, “There is literally no grassroots demand for men who say they are women being allowed in women’s locker rooms. When Jaman testified at the City Council, she received thunderous applause. At the same time, trans activists came in from out of town to prop up the fiction that ‘trans women are women.'”

    The Distance, a Substack page of LGB United drolly reported, “By the time Julie spoke at city hall, someone had driven three hours round trip from Sequim to complain that Julie was being hateful when she, you know, recognized reality.”

    Morse concluded, “Sexual Revolutionaries use the power of the State and the megaphone of the media to punish anyone who disagrees with their inhuman, irrational agenda. We at the Ruth Institute applaud Ms. Jaman. We urge her and her supporters to stay the course and continue the fight for sane public policies.”

    The Ruth Institute is a global non-profit organization, leading an international interfaith coalition to defend the family and build a civilization of love.
