Students stage massive walkout over transgender student’s demand to use girl’s bathroom

Students at a Missouri high school, fed up with politically correct idiocy, staged a massive walkout to protest the school’s decision to allow a transgender “girl” to use the girls’ bathroom.

The transgender student, who calls himself Lila Perry and wears wigs and skirts to school, was locked in a school official’s office over fears for his safety.  Hillsboro High School students walked out of class and, joining some parents, held a two-hour demonstration.

School officials put a time limit on the protest, threatening that any student who stayed out of class longer than the allotted two hours could be subject to an in-school suspension.

“I find it offensive because Lila has not went through any procedure to become female, putting on a dress and putting on a wig is not transgender to me,” student Sophie Beel told Fox 2 St. Louis.

The demonstration took place even though Perry had already decided to drop out of physical education class and stop using the girls’ facilities.

Perry had been using the faculty’s unisex bathroom but decided in this, his senior year, that was no longer good enough and wanted access to the girls’ facilities.

“I feel these girls have a right to their own privacy,” parent Jeff Childs said. “Without the privacy they have nothing.”

Perry equated his fight with the black civil rights movement.

“It wasn’t too long ago white people were saying I don`t feel comfortable sharing a bathroom with a black person and history repeats itself,” Perry said.

A small number of protesters were on hand to support Perry.

“She is a human and she has human rights as everyone else.” student Hayley Reezes told Fox 2.

Social media weighed in on the controversy as well.
