Mentally-Challenged Man Wants Access to Girls Bathroom

Girls Rights Matter
A male student from Hillsboro High School woke up one day and decided that she is a transgender and does not want to use a unisex faculty bathroom. He wants to be treated like a female and wants to gain access to their bathrooms and lockers as well.

The decision of Mr. Lila Perry immediately spread through the small Jefferson County school district and, the day after, students walked out in protest. It was timely and appropriate reaction that prevented a possible abuse of teenage females in the school.

During the walkout, Lila was locked in the principal's office. He said he and the administrators worried about his safety, which he knew would happen if he insists on getting access to the bathrooms of the opposite sex.

The student walkout came on the heels of a school board meeting that drew a very large crowd. Most of those who attended the protest expressed concern that the school is giving special treatment to Mr. Perry. Almost all of the students were opposed to accommodations for Mr. Perry.

"The girls have rights and they shouldn't have to share a bathroom with a boy," said parent Tammy Sorden, who has a son at Hillsboro High. It is fine to be different, she said, but it is not right to give Lila special treatment "while the girls just have to suck it up."

Students and parents interviewed after the walkout were overwhelmingly in support of keeping Lila, 17, out of the school facilities for girls.

However, the mentally-challenged Perry remained defiant.

"I am a girl. I am not going to be pushed away to another bathroom," he said.

High school administrators referred a reporter to Superintendent Aaron D. Cornman. He would not comment about the issue, which has become the talk of the community since classes began in mid-August. He said he had to protect the privacy of students.

Maybe next year, Mr. Perry will again wake up and decides that he wants to be "The Hulk" or an attack helicopter or better yet a Loch Ness monster.
