High school bans girls from girls' locker room after some object to changing with 'biological man'

On "The News & Why It Matters," BlazeTV host Sara Gonzales and guests Jorge Ventura and John Doyle discussed the latest blow to women's rights, as almost an entire girls' volleyball team have been forced out of their own locker room to accommodate one transgender student.

A Vermont high school banned the girls' volleyball team from using their locker room after several team members objected to having to change clothes in front of a transgender teammate. Families were told that under state law, transgender students can use whatever locker room they "identified with."

The dispute began after the trans student allegedly made an" inappropriate comment" while the girls were dressing, team member Blake Allen told WCAX-TV. Allen made it clear that she does not object to having the trans student on the team or at school, but is uncomfortable with "biological boys" in the girls' locker room.

The school reportedly told families that the school has “plenty of space where students who feel uncomfortable with the laws may change in privacy.” But according to Allen, "They want all the girls who feel uncomfortable, so pretty much 10 girls, to get changed in a single stall bathroom, which would take over 30 minutes. Where if one person got changed separately, it would take a minute, like no extra time."

Now, the school is conducting an investigation into allegations that the girls harassed the transgender student.

“I feel like for stating my opinion, that I don’t want a biological man changing with me, that I should not have harassment charges or bullying charges. They should all be dropped,” Allen stated.

"This is absolute madness," Sara asserted.

"I think this is just like male excellence, you know?" John said facetiously. "At all ages, boys just like to conquer things, and you saw all this nonsense in the latter half of the 20th century, 'Oh, Title 9, we want to play sports, too,' and now the boys are just taking those locker rooms back. And we're taking the sports teams back, and we're winning the championships again, and you just love to see it."

"On a more serious note, this is the true patriarchy," Sara interjected. "Literally, men are replacing women in every single thing. That literally is the patriarchy that [leftists] keep warning us about. It's here, and you're supporting it."
