According to LifeSiteNews.com, two groups of students staged a walkout at Abraham Lincoln High School in Council Bluffs, Iowa, last week over the school’s bathroom privacy, with the protest being sparked by a girl who stated that her privacy was violated by a biological male who "recently began to identify as a girl" using the female bathroom. She was joined by about twenty other high school girls who left the school at 10:30 AM and began "chanting for privacy in restrooms, saying they don't want boys transitioning into being girls to be in the restroom with them."
 
The 20 girls demanding privacy were confronted by nearly 40 students of mixed gender chanting in favor of state law, which requires schools to allow students to use whichever bathroom they feel most comfortable with, irrespective of the feelings of female students. Many of the girls made their feelings crystal clear.
 
"We felt very uncomfortable with a male who's not doing anything to be transgender going into female restrooms," said Elana Owens. "I believe if you have the male parts you go to the males' bathroom and if you have the female parts you go to a ladies room and that's just the way I was raised," added Brandi Scherlund, almost in tears.

In response to the student walkouts, Superintendent of the Council Bluffs Community School District Dr. Vickie Murillo stated that, "According to the U.S. Department of Education, which Iowa has adopted that same language and is now part of our state law, our students who are transitioning into a new gender have the right to use the restroom that they identify with. So it is our obligation to allow that to occur."
Murillo did not address the contention of one female student, who noted that there was a biological male making no effort to physically transition joining them in their bathroom. Abraham Lincoln High stated that no students would be punished for the walkout.
 
We're going to see a lot more of these scenarios unfold as the ideology of transgender activists collides with the simple realities of human nature, including the fact that many teenage girls do not want to change in the same room with biological males.
