COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. (ChurchMilitant.com) - Hundreds of students at Pennsylvania's Perkiomen Valley School District staged a walkout Friday after the school board failed to pass a policy prohibiting biological males from using female restrooms. 

Background 

  • Policy 720 — which would have required students to strictly use the bathrooms corresponding to their biological sex — was drawn up after an online post.
  • WPVI-TV in Philadelphia reported, "The proposal was sparked by a recent social media post by a dad who says his daughter encountered someone she thought may have been a boy in the bathroom."
  • The School Board president supported the policy, but it ultimately did not pass when voted on last Monday.

Walkout 

  • The Friday walkout was organized by student John Ott, who told Fox: "Kids were upset. Girls … we wanted to protect them. They were upset. They didn't want men in their bathroom."
  • Perkiomen Valley School Board's president commented: "Although I voted differently than the majority of the board, as board president, I respect the outcome of the vote and those who voted against expediting the policy. I also appreciate our student body, those who came to our previous board meeting to vote, and the 300+ students who used their First Amendment right to voice their opinion in favor of the policy during their protest on Friday."

Reaction 

  • Videos from the walkout went viral on social media, eliciting compliments from many conservatives. 
  • One commenter said: "Amazing. Pennsylvania high school students staged a walk out in protest of letting boys use the girls' bathroom. This is bad news for the likes of [Democrat National Committee] mouthpieces like Harry Sisson, who would have us believe that all of Gen Z is as lost to wokeness as him."
