Idaho Senior Banned from Graduation for Saying There Are 2 Genders

'Guys are guys and girls are girls. There is no in-between...'

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) A Kellogg, Idaho, high school barred a senior from participating in his graduation ceremony after declaring in front of his classmates that there are only two genders, the Idaho Tribune reported.

Kellogg High School school decided that, instead of including senior quotes in the yearbook, they would allow each graduate to deliver a brief message to younger students at the commencement ceremony.

During the commencement rehearsal, 18-year-old Travis Lohr told his classmates and younger students that there are only two genders.

“Guys are guys and girls are girls,” he said. “There is no in-between.”

His remarks received massive applause.

Later on, he added that “a lot of people thought that my statement was against people or against groups, and it wasn’t targeted at any groups.”

In response, however the school’s administration opted to punish Lohr for his disruption.

According to Lohr, administrators, including one named Dan Davidian, took him aside after the rehearsal and told him that his message “seems political.”

The school reportedly has approximately 30 “transgenders” among its 300 students.

Lohr’s mother argued that the school administration was “pushing their biases” on her son.

Lohr’s classmates planned a walkout on Friday to protest his suspension, prompting school officials initially to discuss the postponment of its Saturday graduation ceremony out of safety concerns.

However, the school proceeded with the ceremony anyway, absent Lohr, KHQ reported.

Kellogg High School’s response to their student’s basic scientific observation was, unfortunately, not an isolated incident.

A Massachusetts family may be taking its First Amendment case to the Supreme Court after their seventh-grade son was kicked out of class for wearing a T-shirt that said “There are only two genders.”

And administrators in President Joe Biden‘s Department of Education recently weighed in on a Georgia school district’s dispute concerning sexually explicit books that the superintendent opted to remove from the school’s libraries.

The president’s administrators ordered that the district must now offer “supportive measures to students who may have been impacted by the book removal process.”
