A school in Pennsylvania has had enough of the woke gender ideology seeping into their everyday lives as hundreds of students have organized a walkout after the school board decided to not implement a policy requiring transgender individuals to use the bathroom that goes with their birth sex.
Proposed Policy 720 was brought about for Perkiomen Valley School District after a father named Tim Jagger shared how his daughter was “too upset and emotionally disturbed” after having to share the bathroom with a transgender individual, per Fox News. Other students began to rally around the idea with many girls sharing their discomfort with sharing a bathroom with a biological male.
"Kids were upset. Girls… we wanted to protect them. They were upset. They didn't want men in their bathroom," said John Ott, the student responsible for organizing the walkout.
His mother Stephanie was fully supportive of John’s push, saying, "The safety of females is so important and these students that stood out that walked out, they are to be commended. They have courage and they exercise their First Amendment rights. This is about protecting our children and our privacy and boys and girls. It's simple biology."
"There needs to be some changes. It's just uncomfortable seeing, 19-year-old men or 18-year-old men in the bathroom," Victoria Rudolph, another student, said.
"It makes me feel as if it's me and my sister and the rest of us students' rights are now compromised and not a priority to this school whatsoever," Brandon Emery, a student with family in the district, commented.
His mother, Melanie Marren, spoke on how hard it is for these kids to go through the normal stages of puberty with this newly added transgender aspect to the mix.
"They are making these policies without taking into consideration how they affect the students and how uncomfortable it is just to be a teenager in general, but now have to be faced with the invasion of their privacy in those areas where they should feel safe and private," she said.
The school board president for the district responded to Fox News’ request for a comment, saying, “Although I voted differently than the majority of the board, as board president, I respect the outcome of the vote and those who voted against expediting the policy. I also appreciate our student body, those who came to our previous board meeting to vote, and the 300+ students who used their First Amendment right to voice their opinion in favor of the policy during their protest on Friday."
