Illinois High Schoolers Face Disciplinary Action after Protesting Trans Bathroom Policy

Ashley Sadler : Mar 28, 2023  LifeSiteNews.com

Demers said that she and her fellow students protesting the rule were "verbally harassed" while they carried out their protest and were "called homophobic and transphobic." "That just is not true. I am not scared nor do I hold any hatred," she said. "Quite frankly, I couldn't care less what they do with their body and what they identify as, but when it reaches my security, privacy and sanctity [sic], that is where it crosses the line."

According to the report, roughly 150 students attending Waterloo High School in southwest Illinois protested the school's policy by lining up outside the school nurse's bathroom on March 17. The students decided to form the line in response to being advised to use a single-stall bathroom if sharing facilities with opposite-sex students made them uncomfortable.

Now those students are facing punishments from the school administration, including being marked tardy from class and even potential disciplinary actions for alleged "harassment."

"On Friday, around 150 students, including myself, stood up for our rights and beliefs," Waterloo High School senior Anna Demers told the DCNF.

"We were told to use a single stall restroom in the nurse's office if we were uncomfortable with persons of the opposite genitalia in our restrooms," she said. "We all stood in line, to use the restroom, and to make a statement."
