Missouri Teens Walk Out Of School To PROTEST Transgender Student's Request

There comes a time in life when people have to take a stand and say “enough is enough”.  When those in charge of making the rules no longer have the people’s best interests in mind, the people reserve the right to make their own declaration.

That is exactly what 150 Missouri high school students did on Tuesday.  They declared in unison that Girls Rights Matter.

According to this recent Blaze article, the students of Hillsboro High School walked out to protest a transgender student’s request to share the use of the women’s bathroom and locker room with the women students.

Senior Lila Perry was born a male but has chosen to identify as a female since he was 13.  Not wanting to use the men’s bathroom, Perry asked school officials to let him use the women’s bathroom.

The infringement on the privacy of the high school girls has some parents outraged, “The girls have rights, and they shouldn’t have to share a bathroom with a boy,” the mother of a student told the St. Louis Dispatch.

Perry claimed that the protesting students were bigots, “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.  I wasn’t hurting anyone and I didn’t want to feel segregated out,” Perry said.

To resolve the sensitive issue, the school offered Perry the use of a gender-neutral bathroom.  Perry rejected the school’s offer.  “I am a girl.  I shouldn’t be pushed off to another bathroom,” Perry said.

It is not yet clear how this situation will be resolved.  But it is encouraging to see the high school students (women in particular) stand up for their rights.  No woman should be made to feel uncomfortable or infringed upon in the bathroom or locker room.  Women deserve their privacy and should not be forced by their place of education to change their clothes or use the bathroom around men.
