'Whose schools? Our schools!': Trans activists occupy yet another state Capitol

Activists for so-called trans rights have invaded yet another state Capitol to protest legislative efforts to protect children and public spaces from the trans agenda.

On Friday, hundreds of leftist activists stormed the Florida Capitol building in Tallahassee, outraged that state legislators had dared to consider the Safety in Private Spaces Act, which would prevent people from using restrooms and other "changing facilities" such as locker rooms that do not correspond to their biological sex. Under that act, anyone in Florida who has been asked but refuses to leave an opposite-sex restroom or changing facility could be charged with a misdemeanor. Those found guilty could spend up to 60 days in jail or pay a $500 fine, The Hill reported.

"Parents have the right to raise their children as they see fit, and government intervention should be a last resort," said Sen. Clay Yarborough (R), one of the sponsors of the bill. "As lawmakers, we have a responsibility to protect children from viewing lewd conduct that is patently offensive to prevailing standards in our communities."

The bill passed the state Senate committee along party lines and will soon be presented for a vote to the full Senate, where Republicans hold a sizeable majority, 28-12.

Rather than accept that, as then-President Barack Obama once said, "Elections have consequences," the trans activists, most of whom appear young, occupied the Florida Capitol to express their outrage. Florida's Voice, a news outlet which purports to bring "honest political reporting to Florida, minus the mainstream talking points," shared a one-minute video of the protestors in action.

For the first half of the video, the protestors boo loudly after they received word that the measure had passed the committee. Then, an individual wearing a brightly colored shirt who appears to be male yells, "This fight, this fight does not end here!

"We keep showing up every single day," he continues, walking around in a circle and pointing emphatically with his left hand. "We keep making our voices heard."

He then leads the crowd in a rousing chant of "Whose schools? Our schools!," even though the measure would affect more than just schools.

The trans demonstration in Tallahassee mirrored those demonstrations which occurred elsewhere across the country earlier this week. On Wednesday, trans activists overtook the Kentucky Capitol in Frankfurt to protest similar bathroom legislation there, and 19 people were arrested and charged with criminal trespassing. Then on Thursday morning, activists stormed the Capitol building of Tennessee to demand further gun restrictions after a woman who identified as transgender gunned down three children and three adults at a Christian school in Nashville. No one was arrested at the Capitol protest in Nashville, even though some activists breached the gallery where legislators were gathered.

These demonstrations at various state Capitols have since been dubbed "transurrections" across social media platforms.
