The families of 11 high school girls in Minnesota are standing up for their rights and safety by pushing back against the school and education system that has placed them in harms way.
With the help of the Alliance Defending Freedom, the 11 girls have filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Virginia School District, AG Loretta Lynch and Secretary of Education John King Jr, because they were constantly harassed by a male-to-female transgender student who was given open access to their changing rooms and locker rooms.
The male student made the girls feel uncomfortable and violated by commenting on their bodies, body parts, and asking about their bras. According to Fox News, the male student would dance suggestively to sexually explicit songs and lift his skirt up, revealing his underwear to the girls.
When the girls complained to the school, they were told that if they were uncomfortable that they should use a different bathroom down in the basement. Some of the girls went as far as to go out of their way to use the secondary bathroom so they would not be harassed.
Another one of the girls was told she could use a vacant boys bathroom to change. Shortly thereafter, as she was changing, the male transgender student came into the bathroom and removed his clothes down to his underwear, traumatizing the girl.
In their effort to appease the liberal transgender agenda, the school failed to protect the girls and provide them a safe bathroom in which they could feel safe and have complete privacy away from the opposite gender.
“School policies should promote the rights and safety of every student,” ADF Counsel Gary McCaleb said. “But that’s not what Virginia Public Schools is doing, and it’s certainly not what the departments of Education and Justice are doing. No child should be forced into an intimate setting, like a locker room, with someone of the opposite sex.”
