CV NEWS FEED // Hundreds of Pennsylvania high school students participated in a walkout protest against their district’s pro-“trans” bathroom policy on Friday.
The peaceful protest was organized by student John Ott, following the Perkiomen Valley School Board’s rejection of a policy change that, if enacted, would’ve kept male students out of the girls’ bathroom.
“Kids were upset,” Ott said in an interview with FOX News. “Girls… we wanted to protect them. They were upset. They didn’t want men in their bathroom.”
“The safety of females is so important and these students that stood out that walked out, they are to be commended,” added his mother, Stephanie Ott. “They have courage and they exercise their First Amendment rights. This is about protecting our children and our privacy and boys and girls. It’s simple biology.”
“There needs to be some changes,” agreed Victoria Rudolph, a Perkiomen student. “It’s just uncomfortable seeing 19-year-old men or 18-year-old men in the bathroom.”
The New York Post editorial board praised the student-led protest.
“What really counts for administrators is the advancement of an extreme ideology on gender, one that denies the most basic biological facts,” they wrote.
Trans bathroom rules are part and parcel of that movement, as is a far more serious offense against kids: the current crusade to provide cross-gender hormones and surgeries to confused teens, guaranteeing life-altering consequences (like sterility) and regret.
So the Perkiomen kids are dead right to protest against this.
Let their voices ring out loud and clear.
And the sooner politicians start listening, the better.
