Matt Stewart said his 9-year-old son told him a girl who identifies as a boy was permitted to use the restroom alongside him at Southwest Elementary School in Livington, reported the Detroit Free Press.
“My son informed me there was a girl in the bathroom with him and the other kids in his class,” Stewart told WXYZ-TV.
He said a staff member was present when several children used the boys’ restroom at the same time.
Stewart has demanded answers from the Howell Public Schools Board of Education, but he said administrators cited privacy rules and have declined to comment on the matter — so he’s keeping his boys, who are all under age 10, home in protest.
“I have three children in Southwest Elementary School and they are being humiliated and intimidated,” Stewart said. “Our kids are absent from school until there’s a policy in place that keeps them from being humiliated or intimidated.”
“The bottom line: A 9-year-old girl is in the boys’ bathroom with my son,” the father said, saying no safeguards were in place to keep the girl from walking out of a bathroom stall and see a boy urinating.
Ummm, so are you worried about your boys being in the same room with a girl (the horror!), or a trans boy seeing a penis? Much ado over nothing indeed.
