[The] school turned a blind eye to 'death threats' made against Blake by the transgender student, who allegedly said after the locker room incident 'I'm going to f***ing kill Blake Allen'.

So girls stating “we don’t feel comfortable with a male in the girls locker room” is unacceptable and warrants suspension and “restorative justice,” but literal death threats against a teenage girl is perfectly acceptable.

Meanwhile, the mother of the transgender pupil had commented on a Facebook post saying that Blake had 'made up the story for attention' before adding that 'the truth will prevail'.

Was he in the girls locker room, or not? Did they tell him to leave, or not? Did he watch them in various states of undress, or not? Did the girls consent to this, or not?

Right now, (at least) three or four girls have come forward with consistent accounts of feeling violated and uncomfortable because a male student was allowed to enter the girls locker room while they were partially undressed. What, exactly, are they supposed to be lying about? Personally, I'm not going to make the age-old mistake of assuming girls are being hysterical or dramatic when they complain that a male did something inappropriate to them.

As soon as that male student crossed the threshold into the girls locker room he was in the wrong.

How have we gotten to a place where girls are forced to show their naked bodies to male school mates or face punishment.

Personally, I'm not going to make the age-old mistake of assuming girls are being hysterical or dramatic when they complain that a male did something inappropriate to them.

This gets at why I have changed my position on restrooms/locker rooms.

I used to be in the "make all facilities gender neutral" camp because I, personally, have been using unisex facilities since childhood and don't find it particularly bothersome.

But the more I learn on this topic, the more I realized how my attitude is part and parcel with the attitude that women and girls are not allowed to trust their own judgment. If some other woman feels unsafe disrobing around males, who the fuck am I to tell her that my feelings are correct and hers are incorrect?

And that's the attitude that dominates the arguments for "gender based" facilities, as well. Girls and women think they can reliably identify males, but we know better! Girls and women think they have instincts that warn them against predators, but we know better!

If girls or women perceive a person differently than that person wants to be perceived, it is the girls and women who need to be re-educated.

The last few decades of feminist activism had been about helping girls and women recognize their thoughts and feelings as valid, and using consciousness-raising to help support them in asserting that these are not silly trivial feminine whims...they are reactions based on our experiences, as female human beings, and they have value.

Trans ideology throws all of that away, and we're back to "who you gonna believe, me or your lying eyes?"

My rule of thumb: If one woman is uncomfortable with TIMs in any space that's even slightly vulnerable or intimate, then that's good enough for me, and TIMs need to be kept out. Not that I'm the one deciding, unfortunately, but I'll fight for that for as long as I'm able. TIMs can use the men's or unisex facilities or stay home. I don't give a crap about their feelings.

There are certainly women like you who feel comfortable using either single-sex or mixed-sex facilities. Then there are women who only feel comfortable using single-sex facilities. Therefore, the only solution that makes both sides happy is for women to have single-sex facilities. That's all there is to it for me.

But the more I learn on this topic, the more I realized how my attitude is part and parcel with the attitude that women and girls are not allowed to trust their own judgment. If some other woman feels unsafe disrobing around males, who the fuck am I to tell her that my feelings are correct and hers are incorrect?

Thank you for this! I think it's always better to err on the side of high standards and strong boundaries.

And it's not like I can argue against the experiences that so many women have had which lead them to not want to disrobe around men.

I've never been attacked in a public facility. Which, I mean, yay for me and everything, but unless I can guarantee every other woman the same luck that I've had, I should probably not expect them to feel as I do, eh?

I'm curious what country you live in that you've been disrobing in front of males since you were a little girl?

Nevermind. I read your comments and it has nothing to do with what these girls are being put through. Using a communal open potty at daycare is not the same thing as being forced to undress in front of a male as a teenager.

Where are you from might I ask? Is it normal to have such facilities? For students that are teenagers?

I grew up in the midwest USA, albeit in a particularly progressive area. My childhood daycare did not even have a conventional restroom for students...there was literally a tiled section along one wall of the classroom that had little kid-sized toilets and sinks, and kids would just toddle over and pop a squat on one whenever nature called.

My high school did also have many single-use unisex restrooms, although it also had conventional single-sex bathrooms throughout.

I, personally, have been using unisex facilities since childhood

Can you clarify what you mean by this? Unisex facilities as in unisex locker rooms where multiple people of both sexes changed in at the same time, and bathrooms with multiple stalls that allowed males and females in at the same time? Were these facilities public? If that's the case, how does that work? I've never heard of those.

I responded to another comment, but I grew up using unisex bathrooms until kindergarten. In grade school we had separate restrooms I think (I can't remember too clearly) but we used "family" locker rooms for things like going to the pool. Until puberty, I did not really think anything of sharing changing spaces with kids of either sex.

My high school offered single-occupancy unisex bathrooms, as well as the more common multi-stall bathrooms that were separated by sex. Our locker rooms were single sex.

The "mother" is full if seething hatred against young attractive women, and I firmly believe that hatred of High school and college age girls/women is exactly what's behind old[er] men and women happily trampling on their feelings on behalf of trans "girls"/woMEN. The men are resentful that, despite what porn and pop culture in general tell them is their due, young women rarely have any interest in them *. The women resent young women for getting male attention, while they "become invisible". Basically, this "mother" and every school official supporting her SON against these girls , is EVIL.

  • A few years ago, there were multiple articles published about how older men suffer when they hit 40/50/whatever, and you know what was number one on their list of grievances-? "Being invisible to attractive young women". Seriously. These dads and grandpas felt entitled to sexual interest from women under 25, and whined about it in print,and the journalists who cranked out those bird cage liners obviously thought the reader would hear sad violin music when reading those men's plaints. Just imagine what would be said about women 40-50+ complaining about young men under 25 not seeking them out for sex and romance...

The school then found Blake was guilty of 'harassment and bullying' and ordered her to take part in a 'restorative justice circle' with an equity coordinator, write a 'reflective essay,' and serve a suspension.

Jfc🙄 She told the truth. He is a male. He doesn’t belong in the girls’ locker room. These clowns are punishing a 14-year-old for daring to stand up for herself. They are the bullies.

Blake added: 'Instead of sticking up for the safety and privacy of girls, the school administrators are sticking to their preferred view of gender identity and will unfairly target anyone who dares to think differently.'

Looks like the school failed to make her comply though lol. Smart kid.

That boy belongs in juvenile detention for going around threatening to murder her.

Nah, try him as an adult and stick him with the other men.

The little pervert would probably like it. Just not as much as he'd love a go at women's prison.

This is extremely creepy, like she's being sent to a "reeducation" camp.

What were her parents doing? Did they actually make her go through this bullshit? I would have told them to all go fuck themselves. I would absolutely be on the war path if somebody did this to my child for not wanting to change in front of a male.

Where are all the feminists ?

If we weren't all banned, shamed, arrested, and shunned for speaking out against such madness, they'd fucking see us.

It’s perfectly acceptable for her to feel unsafe with me there. However I’m going to kill her for opening her mouth about it. Until then, the school will punish her

Brava to her. I am impressed by the girls and young women who are standing up to this shit. They seem really smart and are very succinct and straightforward in putting their points across. None of this, "I have compassion for people with gender dysphoria, it must be a terrible cross to bear, and I respect the rights of everyone to identify as they want, and I am totally down with the LGBTQ++++ and I believe in inclusivity, but..." They just come out and say, "Teenage males shouldn't be in the girls' locker room, and males shouldn't be in girls' and women;'s sports."

This will not stop until every school that preferences a boy's feelings over a girl's safety and dignity is sued for every time they do this shit. In ten years time these people will have lost their legal ability to work with chidren and they will be on a special child abuse register.
