Oklahoma father, Riley Flack, sat down with Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Tuesday to discuss fighting back against a progressive transgender bathroom rule being implemented in his daughter’s middle school and how parents are afraid of being canceled, losing their jobs, or being ostracized if they speak up.

“Riley Flack is the father of three daughters in Oklahoma with his eldest being a student at Stillwater Middle School. That district has decided to enforce the Biden administration policies allowing transgender students to use bathrooms corresponding to the gender they identify with,” Ingraham began in her segment.

She then recited what Flack had previously told Fox News Digital, that “a lot of people like to make it a different issue than it is and make it a bigger subject” but that the “issue is singularly that there is a boy” that is “being allowed” in his daughter’s public school bathroom.

“And that’s the issue,” he said during the interview. “I mean, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what sort of issues might come of a certain policy like this.”

“Now, as you point out, these are sixth-grade girls being forced into this situation, so what’s been the reaction to your speaking out here?” Ingraham asked Flack.

“Well, the reaction has been good, I would say. We’re starting to see some people stand up and push back and speak the truth. And that’s what we’re sorely lacking. There’s been some church leaders and some elected reps, their feet have been held to the fire a little bit on this. There’s no fence on this issue. So, that makes it easy to pick who’s gonna side with the truth and not,” Flack replied.


“This is not even a religious question. I’m glad religious leaders are getting involved but this is a common-sense issue… girls and boys sharing the same bathroom. Now I know people identify as different identities. I understand that fact and it’s become very trendy and the percentage of people is growing… oddly, but it’s growing,” Ingraham noted.

“Nevertheless, a sixth-grade girl now is forced into this situation. So, my question to you… are parents, other parents afraid to speak out because they’re worried about their child being in some way bullied or perhaps you won’t get that recommendation to go into a next school, or maybe later on go to college. That’s what I find when I talk to parents. They’re afraid,” she stated.

“Yeah, they’re afraid of being canceled, fired from their jobs, ostracized, being told they’re hateful… and you did say it’s not a religious issue and you’re right. And the common sense, as you know, was given to us by God. And that’s the true attack here,” Riley posited.

“The First Amendment, you talked about that, I got a buddy who’s running for the House in the state of Oklahoma who was physically removed by our local police department for reading Romans 1 during public comment. SPD, the police officers participating in this was quite shocking and chilling. And, yeah, who wants to speak out against this? Nobody wants this fight but they’re bringing it and so we’re going to have to step up,” he commented.

“Riley, isn’t your daughter here being left behind in the name of diversity, equity, and inclusion? What about the girls who don’t agree with this or feel very personally uncomfortable?” Ingraham went on to ask.

“Well, they do this trick all the time and it’s been pretty clear the last couple of years that the majority was made to feel like the minority. It’s quite the opposite. It’s pretty clear that men can’t be girls and I’m sorry, I don’t think it’s hateful to say that. Number one… the single issue… I want to have free speech and I want my daughter to be in the bathroom with other girls and I don’t think that’s a crazy idea,” the father concluded.

Flack has also brought up the sexual assault cases in Loudoun County, Virginia when talking to Fox News. He remarked that “there is zero reason why a boy should be allowed in the girl’s bathroom in a public school setting, especially at the grade of six, at 12 years old.”

“These kids cannot tie their shoes in some cases, much less decide what gender they are,” he stated while accusing schools of being “out of their lane” on many current issues and that the woke policy they are pushing “increases the risk of an issue in a bathroom with an assault or otherwise.”
