Hundreds of students in Pennsylvania’s Perkiomen Valley School District walked out on school this week after their school board rejected a proposed law by a vote of 5-4 that would prevent transgendered “girls” from using girls’ bathrooms. The walkout was organized by John Ott, who said of the walkouts, “Kids were upset. Girls- we wanted to protect them. They were upset. They didn’t want men in their bathrooms.”
High school students in the Keystone State are protesting transgender ideology in their bathrooms. Hundreds of students in the Perkiomen Valley School District north of Philadelphia staged a walkout on Friday, in response to the school board allowing students who identify as transgender to use whichever bathroom they like.
A policy barring students who identify as transgender from accessing bathrooms that don’t correspond to their biological sexes was proposed at a school board meeting Monday of last week. After a four-hour board meeting, five board members voted against the policy and four voted in favor of it.
John Ott, the student who organized the subsequent walkout, explained, “Kids were upset. Girls—we wanted to protect them. They were upset. They didn’t want men in their bathroom.”
Ott’s mother, Stephanie, added, “The safety of females is so important and these students that stood out that walked out, they are to be commended. They have courage and they exercised their First Amendment rights. This is about protecting our children and our privacy and boys and girls. It’s simple biology.”
