Guys Invades Girls’ Bathroom. Girl Knees Guy. Girl Expelled.

A girl in North Pole High School in North Pole, Alaska has been expelled from school for the use of violence in the girls’ bathroom.

According to the Washington Post:

The plot to storm the girls’ bathroom started with a Snapchat message and ended with a knee to the crotch.

It all went down at North Pole High School in North Pole, Alaska — a small, Christmas-loving city southeast of Fairbanks — on the morning of April 4. The snap at issue: a student transitioning from female to male posted a selfie from the boys’ bathroom.

Some boys at the high school who saw the selfie, however, were angry and decided they would walk into the girls’ bathroom to take their own Snapchat selfie “as a form of protest,” Fairbanks North Star Borough School District Superintendent Karen Gaborik told The Washington Post.

But they would not get far.

The first boy to enter the girls’ room was met by a girl ― who kneed him in the groin. With that, the “protest” was over.

There are many troubling parts to this story and that doesn’t even include the transgender issue of a female “transitioning” to a male in a boys bathroom.

First, let’s talk about the appropriateness of taking a “selfie” in a bathroom without the consent of others.

A few years ago, the 2015 Playboy Playmate of the Year Dani Mathers was convicted in Los Angeles of invading a 70 year old woman’s privacy when Mathers took a photo while the woman was showering. Mathers posted the image with the caption “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.” People were outraged at both the “body shamming” and the invasion of privacy of the woman.

Do not the boys in high school have the same privacy?

So the boys, who haven’t been happy with the transitioning females in boys’ bathroom decided to take matters in to their own hands. Perhaps they were relying on the outrage of the “#MeToo” movement where women should not be treated inappropriately to make the case that if it is wrong to take pictures of girls in the bathroom, it must be wrong to take pictures in the boys’ bathroom.

That would be the logical conclusion of “gender equity,” right?

They were met at the door to the girls’ bathroom by a young girl who saw the boys inappropriately entering the girls’ bathroom and she defended her turf – and the turf of other girls – by simply kneeing the first guy in the groin. (She kneed him so hard that he ended up going to the hospital.)

Where there other options available to the girl? Should she have retreated back into the bathroom? Should she have screamed? Should she have run out the door, leaving other girls in the bathroom facing the boys? (Assuming that she could leave the bathroom as the boys were coming in.)

The school district issued a statement on the incident and included the discipline for the students:

A Title IX investigation was conducted, and numerous statements were collected. Based on the results of the investigation, discipline was issued both to the female student and to 7 boys related to the incident. The boys were disciplined for attempting to enter the restroom. There was not evidence that the boys were threatening any student or using any type of force toward other students.

(Notice the person that was not disciplined – the “transitioning” student who started the whole mess.)

The girl was expelled for the use of violence:

The district does not encourage students or staff to use force against students, staff or visitors to school facilities. In general, we recommend students talk to school staff about any situations in which they feel unsafe. Students are encouraged to bring concerns about their safety to school staff. If a student is facing an imminent threat, the student’s response to the threat will be evaluated based on the facts and circumstances of the incident, district policies, and state law.

In other words, the young lady was expected to say to the guys coming into the bathroom, “excuse me while I go get a staff member. Don’t move and don’t go away!”

Or faced with a group of guys coming into a bathroom, the girl had a split second to evaluate the situation. She had no idea what the group of males wanted and felt threatened.

According to Alaska state law, her response was legal:

Sec. 11.81.330. Justification: Use of nondeadly force in defense of self.
(a) A person is justified in using nondeadly force upon another when and to the extent the person reasonably believes it is necessary for self-defense against what the person reasonably believes to be the use of unlawful force by the other person, unless…

She responded with a level of force to stop the threat.

For that, she should be given an award.

Instead, she was expelled – not suspended – expelled – from the school.

What is the message that the school is sending here? That young women (and young people in general) need to have permission to defend themselves? That women (and young people in general) need to rely on the state to protect them?

Frankly, we can’t see how that aligns with the idea that women need to not be victims and to defend themselves in these situations.

How is this type of response from the school and school administrators teaching young women to be strong and independent in the face of a threat?

Isn’t that what we want them to learn? Isn’t that what the “#MeToo” movement is about?

State Representative Tammy Wilson weighed in on the controversy:

Scrutiny over the girl’s punishment began Friday when state Rep. Tammie Wilson, a Republican from North Pole, publicly criticized the school’s handling of the case during an unrelated news conference, saying it sent the wrong message to young girls. (Wilson said the girl was “suspended,” which the girl’s older sister corrected in a widely shared tweet.)

“I don’t care why the boys were in the bathroom,” Wilson said. “I just wanted to make sure I had this opportunity to tell those young ladies at North Pole High School . . . if you ever feel threatened for your safety, whatever force you think you have to give, I will stand behind you. And so will your community. Not for those boys who were where they didn’t belong.”

The girl’s family declined an interview with The Post but said they will be seeking an appeal of the expulsion.

Wilson said Friday that she learned about the incident from a constituent and had been in touch with the girl’s family. The Republican lawmaker said the boys were “blocking” the girl from leaving the bathroom. “Was she not supposed to protect herself?” she said in a follow-up interview with the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.

She added, “I said, ‘Good for her.’ I would have taught my daughter to do the same.”

We agree with the girl and agree with Wilson.

We suspect that most of the people in the country do as well.

Well, except maybe for the so called “educators” in the school district.

    It’s nice you make lots of conclusions when no one currently has all the facts.

    A)The boys protest was announced via a flyer a few days before.
    B) The school has the video cam in the bathroom which would show if this girl was truly ‘trapped’ in the bathroom or threatened in any way
    C) Schools usually aren’t allowed to say much of anything about underage students EVEN when an investigation is completed.
    D) We have blatant and disgusting double standards when it comes to boys sexual privacy versus girls.
    E) The first person to bring this to the attention of the wider world was the girls SISTER on twitter. We have basically one side of the story.

    Here’s my bet. The girl knew these boys were going to protest in the girls bathroom. Chances are (like I said it was announced a day or so before it happened) she wasn’t really blocked inside the bathroom either. She kneed the boy in the groin either to ‘protect the girls turf (something the boys were not allowed to do with their OWN turf) or to ‘virtue signal’ her support for transgender rights against an evil white male.

    Regardless, the Principal of the school is female. She probably wouldn’t have expelled this girl unless she was under no threat and attacked the boy anyway.

    That’s my opinion, and currently there is as much evidence for it as you have for yours.

      Clarance,

      Thank you for your comment.

      A)The boys protest was announced via a flyer a few days before.

      And that makes it right, how?

      B) The school has the video cam in the bathroom which would show if this girl was truly ‘trapped’ in the bathroom or threatened in any way

      Sorry, but by law there cannot be a camera in the bathroom.

      C) Schools usually aren’t allowed to say much of anything about underage students EVEN when an investigation is completed.

      Actually, that is not true. Schools are not allowed to release information such as identification of students by name. The school can, and did, refer to the incident in general terms in their press release and statements.

      D) We have blatant and disgusting double standards when it comes to boys sexual privacy versus girls.

      And that plays into this how?

      E) The first person to bring this to the attention of the wider world was the girls SISTER on twitter. We have basically one side of the story.

      That’s not true. The attention was broadcast from kids within the school The sister, who corrected the school’s statement that her sister was suspended when in fact she was expelled. Furthermore, as previously stated, we have the statement from the school district itself on what transpired. There is more than “one side of the story” being told.

      That’s my opinion, and currently there is as much evidence for it as you have for yours.

      Agreed that it is your opinion. You seem to be missing some facts in the formation of that opinion, but you are entitled to have your own opinion.

    We don’t have anything from the boy (who ended up in a hospital though I understand the injury was not permanent Thank God) but you don’t seem concerned about that.
    “And this plays into this how”?
    Why don’t you mention the flyer? Did you read it? This is the whole reason they were going to the girls bathroom in the first place. If you gave a crap you’d be giving the school he** for opening up either bathroom to the sexually confused.

    As for the school, let me put it this way: They didn’t give any details into any investigation they conducted. So no, we don’t have all the facts, just as you haven’t presented all the currently known facts in your blog post.

    It’s way too soon to say this girl was expelled unjustly.

    If this is how you treat any conflicts between boys and girls (not even bothering to get the boys side of the story) then you are just as bad as any man-hating feminist no matter how ‘conversative’ you think you are.
