Boy gets girls punished for “harassing” him

Tune in for another episode of “Surely you are making this up”:

Randolph High Schools girl’s volleyball team has been banned from its own locker room while school officials investigate a conflict involving a transgender student on the team.

Girls, you see. Always making trouble, always picking on the boys, always starting fights.

Vermont education policy says students can play sports and use the locker room corresponding to their gender. But some members of the Randolph girl’s volleyball team objected to having a transgender teammate in the room while they were changing.

No, it’s not the “transgender” they object to, it’s the boy.

Isn’t it funny how this doesn’t come up with boys and their locker rooms? No, it isn’t, because it’s so obvious why. Boys are predators and girls are their prey. Of course boys aren’t going to object to a girl stupid enough to take her clothes off in their locker room.

[Blake] Allen [one of the girls] says that the dispute started when the trans student made an inappropriate comment while members of the volleyball team were getting changed. She says her issue is not with having the trans student on the team or at school, but specifically in the locker room. “There are biological boys that go into the girl’s bathroom but never a locker room,” Allen said.

The issue is also with having the boy on the girls’ team, but whatever.

In an email to families, school officials wrote that the school has “plenty of space where students who feel uncomfortable with the laws may change in privacy.”

You mean a spare locker room they can use? No.

“They want all the girls who feel uncomfortable — so pretty much 10 girls — to get changed in a single stall bathroom, which would take over 30 minutes. Where if one person got changed separately, it would take a minute, like no extra time,” Allen said.

Yawn; this is about the boy’s opportunity to get attention, not the girls’ ability to keep playing their sport.

In the email to parents, school officials say they are conducting an investigation into allegations the girls harassed the transgender boy student.

There it is. School officials are framing this as girls harassing this boy in their locker room.

Vermont Agency of Education officials were not available for comment Wednesday. AOE policy states, in part, that “The use of restrooms and locker rooms by transgender students requires schools to consider numerous factors…” But it goes on to state that “A transgender student should not be required to use a locker room or restroom that conflicts with the student’s gender identity.”

Always always always the neutral neuter anodyne “transgender” student when the issue is the boy student. We’re not even allowed to name the problem, and the media obligingly perpetuate the coverup.
