Students Stage Walk out Over Transgender Student Using Girls’ Locker Room

lilaCrowds of protesters gathered in front of Hillsboro High School in Missouri to express their thoughts about a transgender student using the girls’ locker room.

More than 150 students walked out of class in protest, 30-40 of which were in support of senior Lila Perry’s right to use the girls’ locker room during gym class, Fox 10 reported.

“There’s a lot of ignorance, they are claiming that they’re uncomfortable,” Perry, who was born a male but said he identified as a female since age 13, told Fox 10. “I don’t believe for a second that they are. I think this is pure and simple bigotry” . . .

“Boys needs to have their own locker room,” Jeff Childs said. “Girls need to have their own locker room and if somebody has mixed feelings where they are, they need to have their own also” . . .

“I wasn’t hurting anyone and I didn’t want to feel segregated out,” Perry said. “I didn’t want to be in the gender neutral bathroom. I am a ‘girl’, I shouldn’t be pushed off to another bathroom.” (Read more from “Students Stage Walk out Over Transgender Student Using Girls’ Locker Room” HERE)
