The U.S. Supreme Court has blocked a 4th Circuit Court order mandating that schools nationwide open their locker rooms, showers, and bathroom facilities to students based upon their gender identity claims.  The Virginia school board that had originally been struck down by the Circuit Court is still planning to appeal to the Supreme Court to overrule the order entirely.

This is a huge — albeit, temporary — victory for privacy and safety rights for students, as well as state and local sovereignty, in the United States.
