From KTVL news:
“Students from Hedrick Middle School took a stand Monday against the directive from the Obama administration saying public schools must allow transgender students to use bathrooms according to their chosen gender identity.
The students tell News10 they are protesting the fact that some male students are using this as a chance to go into the female bathrooms.
“I feel like they were just using it more to their benefit of just kind of being perverts more rather than actually using it because they were uncomfortable with going into the bathroom of birth,” student Grace Milligan said.
The students’ parents were also present.
“They came home and one of our girls was crying and didn’t feel safe because she didn’t feel safe going into the girl’s bathroom or locker room,” parent Renee Molder said.”
Please do click on the link because there is a video. The video shows the protest, which is rather small, and has a few middle school kids and their parents. There is also an adult trans woman who showed up to yell stuff about the difficulties he has faced in his life. He tells the news reporter that if these protesters knew anything about the trans community, they’d know that trans people hate their own parts and don’t even want to look at them. I suppose this trans woman has genuine sex dysphoria, but he seems to be unaware that tons of the male-to-female transitioners that we are currently hearing from actually have a fetish. If he knew anything about the trans community, he’d know that it has been infiltrated by fetishists and trolls.
Apparently at this school there are both gender-neutral bathrooms and sex-segregated ones. This seems reasonable to me—I think it’s a good idea to have gender-neutral bathrooms alongside traditional ones in order to accommodate the gender nonconforming people who need them. Girls should have privacy away from boys, and people who don’t feel like they can use either bathroom should have access to a separate one.
I don’t get the impression that anyone is really listening to the other side though. I don’t mean just in this particular protest, I mean in general. People keep yelling stuff but not actually listening or trying to have a mature, adult conversation. It’s like no one actually wants to solve problems, they just like drama. This whole situation is one big shit show.
