School Allows Students Extra Means To DEFEND Themselves Amidst Push For Open Bathrooms

A school board in North Carolina is recognizing the powerful push to not restrict bathrooms to people's biological sex, and it appears that has played a big factor in board members now allowing high school students to carry defensive sprays like mace.

According to the Salisbury Post, high schoolers in the Rowan-Salisbury district will now be able to bring defensive sprays on campus.

Board member Chuck Hughes advocated for the sprays, saying, “Depending on how the courts rule on the bathroom issues, it may be a pretty valuable tool to have on the female students if they go to the bathroom, not knowing who may come in."

According to Education Action Group, though, Hughes reversed his decision to support the sprays after they were approved by the board following accusations lobbied at him that his remarks were anti-LGBT.

Hughes explained, “I was not thinking about the LGBT issue. Perverts and pedophiles taking advantage of this law in bathrooms was my major concern. My statement was misinterpreted and when I hear other people talking about it, I can see how it was misinterpreted.”

He still walked back his comments, though, calling them "inappropriate."
