Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee signed a law to protect access to gender-specific bathrooms on Friday, triggering many progressive groups to claim the law will discriminate against the LGBTQ community.

The legislation, called The Tennessee Accommodations for All Children Act (pdf), mandates that a public school has to provide “a reasonable accommodation” to a person who submits a written request: “For any reason, is unwilling or unable to use a multi-occupancy restroom or changing facility designated for the person’s sex and located within a public-school building, or multi-occupancy sleeping quarters while attending a public school-sponsored activity.”

The law also states that a person’s sex is “a person’s immutable biological sex as determined by anatomy and genetics existing at the time of birth.” It defines “reasonable accommodation” as “access to a single-occupancy restroom or changing facility, or use of an employee restroom or changing facility.”

“A reasonable accommodation does not include access to a restroom or changing facility that is designated for use by members of the opposite sex while persons of the opposite sex are present or could be present,” the law continues.
