Sanity Comes To Georgia – At Least For A Moment – Georgia school district delays transgender bathrooms after parents revolt by Calvin Freiburger for Life Site News
GNN Note – It sounds like Pickens County is filled with actual parents that care about their children’s security. Why in the world anyone would encourage men to go into a restroom with small girls in it is beyond my comprehension – Oh, I know…LGBT+P for pedophile.
The Pickens County School District in Georgia announced this week it will delay implementation of a plan to let gender-confused students use bathrooms meant for the opposite sex, following a massive turnout of angered parents before the school board.
Previously, Pickens County allowed “transgender” students to simply use single-occupancy restrooms. But following demands for full access to opposite-sex restrooms, the district announced Monday it would be following recent court rulings that “establish the right of a transgender student to use the restroom which the student identifies with,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The news didn’t sit well with area parents, hundreds of whom attended a board meeting that night to make their displeasure known.
“Most people won’t say anything because they fear retaliation,” said Nathan Barfield, who testified that his two children were uncomfortable with the new rules. “Accommodations have already been made for transgender students. This is nothing but a political stunt to gain attention!” His declaration reportedly received “thunderous” affirmation from the audience.
“Once you give into this, you’ll open the floodgates,” testified Lisa Ray, another parent.
Some LGBT former students also testified in support of the accommodation, with one claiming that “too many LGBTQ youth avoid using the bathroom at all at school, to the detriment of their health.” These did not win over the many in attendance who felt that the school was disregarding the rights of non-trans students.
