A teen high school student with long hair and some makeup thinks anyone who treats him like a male is guilty of bigotry.
The difference between girls and boys is not how they wear their hair. You would think high school students would know that.
KMOV reports, “Hillsboro High School students stage walkout in dispute over transgender student.”
More than 150 students walked out of Hillsboro High School over a dispute about the use of the girls’ locker room by a transgender student.
The walkout lasted for about two hours. Roughly 30-40 people showed support for senior Lila Perry, who wants to use the girls’ locker room during gym class. Perry was born a male but said she has identified as a female since 13.
“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,” said Perry.
A short distance away, a counter protest was being held by people claiming they have relatives at the high school.
“Boys needs to have their own locker room. Girls need to have their own locker room and if somebody has mixed feelings where they are, they need to have their own also,” said protester Jeff Childs.
Perry told News 4 school officials have been accommodating, understanding, and compliant with Title IX. The school offered her a private gender-neutral restroom, which she turned down.
“I wasn’t hurting anyone and I didn’t want to feel segregated out. I didn’t want to be in the gender neutral bathroom. I am girl, I shouldn’t be pushed off to another bathroom,” said Perry.
Here is what I don’t understand. Yes, there are people who insist that transgender is some kind of real thing, rather than simply a form of insanity that should be cured or controlled as well as possible. I get that. But why do they accuse everyone who disagrees with them of “bigotry”? Is there really no other possible motive that would explain why people think that a male is a boy or man?
It seems to me that, in addition to all the other reasons not to believe in the transgender ideology, the temper tantrums and the unproven accusations that transgender believers resort to, indicate that they know they are making stuff up. They have no way to persuade people of their case so they just scream and accuse.
But, recognizing what is going on is just bigotry as far as the other side is concerned.
It is only a matter of time, however, before Title IX is changed to back up this boy’s demand. Our political rulers want to support hysterical malcontents against all people who still allow themselves to understand reality.
George Orwell wrote, “Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.” Likewise, freedom is the freedom to say a male is male and a female is female. The Federal government is not going to let us do that.
