Ohio Christian and Muslim Parents Sue School Board Over ‘Gender Neutral’ Bathrooms

‘School districts across the country... are actively destroying fundamental rights...’

(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Christians and Muslims from Bethel, Ohio, joined forces to sue their local school board for allowing students in their schools to use locker rooms and bathrooms that don’t align with their biological sex, according to the Post Millennial.

Gene Hamilton, America First Legal and AFL president, who represents the parents, highlighted the problem that not only parents but every person faces in this country.

“School districts across the country – the leadership of which have been captured by woke ideologues and weak-spined bureaucrats – are actively destroying fundamental rights.”

The parents said that the secretly-implemented policy violates their parental and religious rights.

“Generations of Americans have grown up in environments that have unquestionably respected students’ personal privacy in intimate spaces, separated by biological sex,” Hamilton added.

“Yet here we are as a society in the year 2022 subjecting students across this country to the kinds of anti-science, social experiments that would have once been unfathomable and absurd a decade ago.”

One of the leftist faculty members proposed a rule change at a board meeting on Sept. 13, 2021, saying that it was “unfair that transgender students had to use a private restroom away from the main restrooms.”

The LGBT propagandist also said that it is “unfair” that a male cannot use a female bathroom or locker room if he “identifies” as a woman.

The leftist school board implemented the rule in Jan. 2022 without any parental involvement.

“According to the lawsuit, the secret rule change violated Ohio’s Open Meetings Act. Parents said they were ‘blindsided’ by the change which was done ‘in secret to avoid community opposition’ and violates their ‘safety, privacy, modesty, religion, and historical views of sex,’” the Post Millennial reported.

“The school board cited the change was to stay compliant with the Biden administration’s interpretation of Title IX.”

The school district then mocked girls by saying that if they are uncomfortable using a bathroom made for them because there might be a man inside, they could use the newly built sex-neutral bathrooms.

Meanwhile, children — girls, especially — are suffering.

“In the lawsuit, children have reported that they ‘hold their urine and avoid using the restroom at school if at all possible’ which ‘causes them anxiety and emotional distress,’” the Post Millennial reported.

“One girl always takes a friend to the bathroom ‘to help protect her and make sure that no boy violates her modesty.’”
