Momentum is building across Iowa as public swimming pools have been forced to allow a middle teenaged biological female to walk around topless and another has had to allow a biological male to use the female facilities.

That is happening across the state because in 2007 Iowa Democrats put gender identity into the Iowa Civil Rights Code.

However, Iowans are working to gain support for removing gender identity from the civil rights code.

Because gender identity is a protected class in Iowa, little girls are forced into situations where a grown man who thinks he is a woman is using the stall next to them in the bathroom.
