Lots of you have probably heard of the lawsuit regarding the male-to-trans teen who was twerking in the girls’ locker room and making girls uncomfortable.
From the Daily Signal:
“A group of students and parents from Minnesota filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the federal government and their school district for allowing a transgender student who was born male but identifies as female into the girls’ locker rooms, showers, and restrooms.
The lawsuit was filed by the conservative nonprofit Alliance Defending Freedom representing concerned parents and students who formed a group called Privacy Matters. The group is suing over Minnesota’s Virginia Public Schools’ policy for transgender students, arguing that the current policy is an invasion of personal privacy.
According to the complaint, a transgender student in Duluth, Minnesota, was allowed to enter the girls’ locker room and would dance “in a sexually explicit manner—‘twerking,’ ‘grinding,’ and dancing like he was on a ‘stripper pole’ to songs with explicit lyrics, including ‘Milkshake’ by Kelis.”
“On another occasion,” the complaint noted, “a female student saw the male student lift his dress to reveal his underwear while ‘grinding’ to the music.”
Right-wing sites have been reporting on this more accurately, acknowledging the male student as male and that the privacy rights of the girls have been violated. However, despite the MtT student’s obviously outrageous and abusive behaviour, the so-called “progressive” media is defending him.
Here is an article by a man who is apparently gay and who is an “LGBT editor” for Think Progress who defends the abusive male student as a regular girl “who happens to have a personality.” He scoffs at the idea that this male student is not a girl, and calls his abusive behaviour “ordinary teenage behavior.”
Let’s take a look at the “ordinary teenage behaviour” he is defending.
From the Washington Times:
“The transgender student, only identified as “Student X” in the complaint, would allegedly dance to lewd music while in the locker room, including by “twerking, grinding, and lifting up his skirt to reveal his underwear” in front of high school girls.
He is also accused of following two female students seeking privacy in a secondary locker room and disrobing in front of them.
Student X also allegedly questioned one female student about her bra size and then asked her to “trade body parts” with him.”
The trans activist party line is that boys who identify as girls simply want to change with their teammates and there’s nothing sinister going on. I’ve been a teenage girl in a girls’ change room, and nobody behaved like this. We changed quickly, we were generally embarrassed about being seen undressed even by other girls, and we did NOT have sexy dance parties. If this teenage boy actually had sex dysphoria and hated his male parts, would he dance around, undress, show off and lift his skirt? I doubt it. He’s behaving like an entitled asshole who has no concern about the girls he is making uncomfortable, and he appears quite gleeful about violating their boundaries.
That fact that he actually followed female students who went elsewhere for privacy and continued to undress in front of them really highlights how abusive he is. If this were just a matter of him wanting to use a change room like any other girl, he would have no reason to follow girls elsewhere and continue to intimidate them.
The “LGBT editor” from Think Progress, Zack Ford, offers a whole array of excuses for the MtT’s abusive behavior. He suggests that by conspicuously undressing his male body in a female locker room, the MtT student was simply “using the locker room for its intended purpose.” In response to the MtT following a girl who was uncomfortable around him, Ford says he was just “calling out her rejection.” (Why wasn’t she allowed to reject him???) Regarding the lewd dance routine, Ford says “Dancing is a thing that happens in high school locker rooms.”
The attitude Ford displays toward the teen girls at this school is that they should accept a male’s version of reality even if it is different from their own, which is a form of abuse called gas-lighting. Further, Ford wants them to accept the MtT’s boundary-crossing behaviour without complaint. Teaching girls that they must ignore their feelings of discomfort and defer to male wishes is grooming them for abuse.
I can’t imagine how it could be “progressive” or “pro-LGBT” to gas-light and groom teenage girls into accepting sexual abuse. If you ask me, sexual abuse is NEVER progressive and never acceptable. I am completely baffled when people suggest that promoting sexual abuse is somehow a way to advance “LGBT rights.” Lesbians, gay men, and bisexuals do NOT benefit from the promotion or acceptance of sexual abuse. The only people who benefit from that are the predators.
I am a lesbian, and when I’m in a female locker room, I change as quickly as possible while being careful not to look at anyone, and then I get out right away. I would never do anything to make anyone uncomfortable. Never have I ever witnessed a sexy dance party in a locker room! People who think that girls are in a regular habit of twerking and pole dancing while changing for gym class have been watching too much porn.
The people who are launching anti-trans lawsuits are generally conservatives, and conservatives are likely to be homophobic already. If so-called “LGBT” organizations and writers are defending the abusers who are targeting the daughters of these conservative parents, what do you suppose those parents are going to think about lesbians, gays and bisexuals? Gays rights activists spent decades convincing heterosexual America that we are not sexual predators or perverts, and now “LGBT” activists are defending sexual predators and perverts as being under the “LBGT” umbrella. I am one of the Ls in “LGBT” and I do not want to be under the same umbrella as men who sexually abuse women—I don’t even want to be on the same planet as them.
As long as the trans cult refuses to distinguish between sex dysphoria and sexual fetishes, and as long as they defend abusers, they are harming lesbians, gays and bisexuals. I am so alienated from “LGBT” at this point, I am almost starting to cringe when I see that acronym. That is really fucking sad.
So-called “Progressive” people, take a good hard look at what you’re supporting, and who it benefits and who it’s hurting.
