From David French:
More than 150 kids walked out of Missouri’s Hillsboro High School yesterday. Why? Because a guy calling himself Lila Perry wanted to use the girls’ locker room. They were bursting with common sense:
“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.
The school had offered just such an accommodation, but that wasn’t enough for Perry:
Perry told News 4 school officials have been accommodating, understanding, and compliant with Title IX. The school offered her a private gender-neutral restroom, which she turned down.
The controversy exploded after a girl at the school reported encountering an “intact male” in the locker room. Exposing a penis to girls in a public high school is generally considered an act of sexual harassment, not part of the sexual revolution. But, sadly, Perry can’t see reality:
“I wasn’t hurting anyone and I didn’t want to feel segregated out. I didn’t want to be in the gender neutral bathroom. I am girl, I shouldn’t be pushed off to another bathroom,” said Perry.
Indecent exposure is hurtful. And I’m sorry, Lila, but you’re not a girl. Anyone who tells you otherwise is deceiving you.
While I feel sorry for a young, confused kid who’s becoming yet another pawn in the Left’s war on decency, I’m deeply heartened that more than 100 of his classmates took a stand for basic biology. Not every Millennial is a sexual revolutionary.
