In what is may become a common occurrence in the near future, 150 Missouri high school students walked out of class Monday due to a disagreement as to whether or not a transgender student who was born male should be allowed to use the girls’ locker room.
From KMOV 4 St. Louis:
The walkout lasted for about two hours. Roughly 30-40 people showed support for senior Lila Perry, who wants to use the girls’ locker room during gym class. Perry was born a male but said she has identified as a female since 13.
“There’s a lot of ignorance, they are claiming that they’re uncomfortable. I don’t believe for a second that they are. I think this is pure and simple bigotry,” said Perry.
A short distance away, a counter protest was being held by people claiming they have relatives at the high school.
It appears that the students were split as to whether or not they felt comfortable with the arrangement and the ordeal lasted for about 2 hours.
The school apparently offered Perry a gender neutral bathroom, which he rejected claiming, “I am a girl, I shouldn’t be pushed off to another bathroom.”
This is probably the most interesting aspect of the story. The school, which was clearly caught in a tough spot, offered a perfectly reasonable compromise to the situation and Lila Perry refused.
The way things are trending right now, the LGBT community doesn’t really care whether or not parents are comfortable with their teenage children being forced to share bathrooms and locker rooms with children of the opposite sex.
Perry even went so far as to say that he doesn’t believe the situation bothered anyone, opponents of the move were just bigots.
This represents the false liberal narrative that has been successfully used to demonize anyone who doesn’t agree with absolutely everything the LGBT community is asking for.
A parent who does not want their child, who they still have full legal control of, changing in the same locker room as a child with the genitalia of the opposite sex is not a bigot. Automatically labeling them as one does nothing to further the conversation.
Perry dropped out of the gym class but will keep using the girls’ restroom.
It’s hard not to be concerned by the degree to which the PC police have taken over society. This serves as yet another example of the supreme intolerance of the left. “My way or the highway”.
There is room for different opinions in this world, but it is the parent’s decision what their children are exposed to when they send them off to public school, not the media’s. Period.
