New York High School Students Walk Out Over Gender Ideology

Students in a New York high school walked out of school Monday to protest leftist gender ideology, specifically the school district’s new rules allowing students to use the bathroom of the gender they identify with instead of what they were born as.

John Jay High School, located in the Wappingers Central School District, experienced a massive walkout when students decided to stand up for their beliefs, not giving in to the woke ideology that has plagued schools in recent years.

One student said that they were okay with students with gender identity issues using designated bathrooms so everyone would feel “more comfortable.

“A bunch of people from our school, John Jay, feel uncomfortable,” high school senior Shauna Neilan said. “We want to change that and give them their own spaces to make us more comfortable and them more comfortable.”

The walkout led to a small counter-protest consisting mostly of adults, which was organized by a radical leftist group “Defense of Democracy,” whose goal is to educate “the public about the value of inclusivity and the importance of emotional and physical safety for all individuals within the American public-school and library systems.”

While Neilan’s idea of everyone having their bathroom seems reasonable and fair, students with gender identity issues have a problem with it, wanting the majority to cater to their demands.

“I feel as though that we shouldn’t be silenced no matter what,” said Cory Pittore, a female senior who has decided to live as a man.

“We are human, just like everyone else,” Pittore added. “I, myself, have been struggling with this for so long, and I just feel like we shouldn’t be silenced because we’re human ourselves.”

New York State law requires that all public school districts provide students who want to live as the opposite gender access to the bathroom they feel like using, no matter how uncomfortable and unsafe it makes other students feel.

“We want to support all of their rights, but we’re also going to be following the proper protocol that we are responsible for following,” said Superintendent Dwight Bonk.

“We are going to continue to provide a safe environment for all of our students. And all means all, each and every one of them,” Bonk added.

According to Bonk, the students who walked out will be lectured about the code of conduct, meaning that students who disagree with the left’s agenda don’t have a right to an opinion or feel safe.

While school should be a place for learning, the left has hijacked it and turned it into indoctrination and propaganda. Any students or faculty that do not cater to their ideology are seen as troublemakers. The only way to combat their narrative is by doing what these students did: protest.
