I’ll say it: the vast majority of teenage boys are a bit perverted. It comes with the territory. Part of growing up is growing interested in the opposite sex and sex in general. Watch “Porky’s,” “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” or really any movie detailing the exploits of teenage boys and you will see a comical depiction of the teenage mindset with only a smidge of hyperbole.
That is precisely why, since the dawn of time, men and women have enjoyed separate facilities. Women need privacy and, frankly, so do men. Now, in this age of moral relativism where everything is equal to everything else and there are no moral absolutes or civil constraints, it is considered “transphobia” to assert that women should use women’s facilities and men should use men’s facilities.
However, not all are taking this nonsense laying down. Missouri high school students are protesting the use of the women’s restroom by a confused young man who claims he’s a woman.
“Lila” Perry, a man whose real name has not been revealed, began identifying as a female in February. Since then, Perry has sought and obtained permission to use the women’s restroom and locker room.
In protest of this perversion, more than 100 students walked-out of class on Monday in protest.
“I’m hoping this dies down,” said Perry. “I don’t want my entire senior year to be like this.”
Of course, the natural solution would be for Perry to stop making a scene and use the men’s room.
Good got involved after hearing that a female student complained of encountering “an intact male” in the women’s locker room.
“It’s a violation of my daughters’ rights to privacy to not have a policy,” he said.
So far, the school district has appeared infinitely more-concerned with protecting Mr. Perry’s supposed right to act as a pervert than they have been with protecting the privacy rights of young women who do not wish to change next to a man.
District’s superintendent Aaron D. Cornman issued a statement claiming that the district “accepts all students no matter race, nationality/ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation.”
On Thursday, the school board held a meeting that was attended by so many parents, it had to be moved to a larger location. Without a reasonable solution, students resorted to protest on Monday.
Perry defends his position and has assumed the role of the victim in this scenario, claiming,
“It feels really awful that people are going to these extremes against me, not just in school but all over the Internet. But I’ve also received so much support. It feels really surreal to be in the middle of all of this.”
On Friday, the Missouri Gay-Straight Alliance Network will host a rally for Perry.
“I think that there are a lot of folks that don’t understand the difference between sex and gender and only see Lila as her sex at birth,” said Morgan Keenan, the group’s director.
For many, it’s not a matter of identity; it’s a matter of anatomy. Mr. Perry can identify as whatever he wishes. He can identify as the King of England or as a Rock Lobster. So long as Perry respects the boundaries demanded by society, he can indulge whatever delusions he wishes.
As liberals stumble-over one another to comply with the latest bit of delusional nonsense, what they have lost sight of is the 99.9% of society they are victimizing in the process.
Those who would posit that Perry has a right to feel comfortable in whatever bathroom he chooses appear to have forgotten about the thousands of women in the school district who will then be made to feel uncomfortable. What of their rights?
In this day and age, it seems those who behave normally and do not seek endless supplies of attention are simply marginalized and relegated to a less-important role than those who seek for society to validate their cherished victim status.
