A teen high school student with long hair and some makeup thinks anyone who treats him like a male is guilty of bigotry.
The difference between girls and boys is not how they wear their hair. You would think high school students would know that.
KMOV reports, “Hillsboro High School students stage walkout in dispute over transgender student.”
More than 150 students walked out of Hillsboro High School over a dispute about the use of the girls’ locker room by a transgender student.
The walkout lasted for about two hours. Roughly 30-40 people showed support for senior Lila Perry, who wants to use the girls’ locker room during gym class. Perry was born a male but said she has identified as a female since 13.
“There’s a lot of ignorance, they are claiming that they’re uncomfortable. I don’t believe for a second that they are. I think this is pure and simple bigotry,” said Perry.
A short distance away, a counter protest was being held by people claiming they have relatives at the high school.
“Boys needs to have their own locker room. Girls need to have their own locker room and if somebody has mixed feelings where they are, they need to have their own also,” said protester Jeff Childs.
