Last Thursday, approximately 60 students at Abraham Lincoln High School in Council Bluffs, Iowa walked out of the classroom in protest over the school’s policy of allowing a biological male to use the female restrooms. While the transgender student had the support of some classmates as well, the opposing protest shows that no matter what kind of ideology may be chic in Hollywood, it isn’t necessarily that alluring to the young women who must sacrifice their privacy and safety so that a confused kid can live out his fantasies of being a girl.
From the Omaha World-Herald:
One group, which supported the student, walked up the hill near the track, while the second, opposing group remained near the entrance.
The first group could be heard chanting “equality,” while the second chanted “We want our privacy, he is a male,” and “One over all is not fair.”
Council Bluffs Community School District Superintendent Vicki Murillo said the walkout stemmed from a student at the school who did not want to be in the same restroom as a transgender student.
“I was very proud of how the students peacefully conducted themselves. It’s important to us to let students express their opinions as long as it’s done in a respectful way,” Murillo said.
No disciplinary actions were taken for those who participated in the walkout. It lasted for about 15 minutes before students returned to class.
The school district insists that it is merely following the latest official guidelines from the U.S. Department of Education. Those guidelines, delivered to schools in the last year of the Obama administration, state: “Schools often segregate restrooms and locker rooms by sex, but some schools have policies that students must be permitted to access facilities consistent with their gender identity and not be required to use facilities inconsistent with their gender identity or alternative facilities.”
But that excuse isn’t doing much for the girls at Abe Lincoln High, who want to know that their security is being valued over one student’s “right” to express himself as a female.
“We felt very uncomfortable with a male who’s not doing anything to be transgender going into female restrooms,” said student Elana Owens.
“I believe if you have the male parts you go to the males’ bathroom and if you have the female parts you go to a ladies room and that’s just the way I was raised,” said fellow student Brandi Scherlund.
It’s still a little bit baffling to us that feminists have allowed this issue to get away from them, but it proves conclusively that “feminism” was always just the usual Communist leftism under another cloak. We still believe there’s a backlash coming over this abject, unscientific idiocy, but we’ll have to wait and see. If we’re wrong, the future is going to be…really weird, to say the least.
