“Boys are reading erotica in the classroom next to girls and you want to give them access to girls' locker rooms and you want to force girls to call those boys 'she,'" 14 year-old Jolene Grover told the Loudon County, Va. School Board (LCSB) Tuesday.
Grover was commenting on the board’s new proposed policy allowing biological boys to use girls’ facilities. A draft of Policy 8350 decrees that "students should be allowed to use the facility that corresponds to their gender identity."
Sporting a shirt declaring “Woman is female,” Grover told the school board that its members should know better than to institute such dangerous, sexist policies catering to ‘modern identities’:
"Everyone knows what a boy is – even you. Your proposed policies are dangerous and rooted in sexism. When ‘woke’ kids ask me if I was a lesbian or a trans boy because I cut my hair short, it should tell you these modern identities are superficial."
Grover says the board’s policies prioritize “Boy’s wants over girls’ needs”:
"Now, boys are reading erotica in the classroom next to girls and you want to give them access to girls' locker rooms and you want to force girls to call those boys 'she.'"
"You do this in the name of inclusivity while ignoring the girls who will pay the price. Your policies choose boys' wants over girls' needs."
On Tuesday, a court ordered LCSB to reinstate a teacher who was suspended for voicing his concerns at a school board meeting that the policy under consideration violated his religious beliefs and was harmful to children.
“I will not affirm that a biological boy can be a girl and vice versa because it is against my religion,” physical education teacher Tanner Cross stated on May 25 during the public comments portion of the meeting. “It’s lying to a child. It’s abuse to a child. And it’s sinning against our God.”
As Fox News reports, a previous policy (1040) committed the county to supporting sexual orientation and gender identity ideology.
