Is it right to force the majority of a population to forfeit their rights to privacy and modesty for the sake of one sexually confused individual? That is the issue that is being asked at a number of schools across America and sadly in most cases that’s exactly what’s been happening.
However the majority of the student body at Hillsboro High School in Missouri is determined to keep a transgender boy from using the girls’ bathrooms and locker room. Located in the rural farmlands about 40 miles southwest of downtown St. Louis, Hillsboro has a population of less than 3,000 but that population is being stirred up like a hornet flying around a room full of people.
Last school year, a student who refers to himself as Lila Perry was an admitted gay male. However this year, Perry’s senior year at the small high school claims to be a transgender who thinks of himself as a girl although he is still anatomically all male. The school tried to accommodate Perry by letting him use a unisex faculty bathroom, but Perry is not satisfied with that. He has requested permission to use the girls’ bathrooms and locker room and in fact has tried to use the girls’ facilities.
Last Thursday the school board met to discuss the request. The meeting drew a large crowd for the small town with most of the parents and students speaking out against Perry being allowed to use the girls’ bathrooms and locker room. They told the school board that they have their rights of modesty and decency that the school has no right to violate.
Tammy Sorden, whose son attends the high school, spoke out saying:
“The girls have rights, and they shouldn’t have to share a bathroom with a boy.”
Even though no decision has been reached by the school board, on Monday the student body walked out of school in protest over the issue. The vast majority of students were against giving Perry any special treatment and forcing them to sacrifice their morals, values and decency for his sake.
Parents have met with an attorney and are trying to draft a school district policy that would mandate that students use the facilities of the sex they were born with. They are doing their best to word the policy in such a way that it would stand up in court.
As a parent, would you want your daughter(s) exposed to a naked male in their school locker room? I know I wouldn’t have tolerated it and I hope most parents in America wouldn’t tolerate it either.
America was founded on the principle that the majority ruled, but in our perverted and debauched society, it’s the minority that is forcing their perverse ways on the majority. It’s time that the majority of Americans say no more and start standing up for the rights of their children and themselves.
