A high school in Vermont has banned members of the girls volleyball team from using the girls locker room after they complained about a biological male being allowed to use their locker room with them.

Here’s more from ABC 4 News:

A girls high school volleyball team has reportedly been banned from its own locker room after some players objected to allowing a transgender player to be present while the team was changing clothes.

In Vermont, the home of Randolph High School, state policy dictates that transgender students can play sports and use facilities that correspond to their desired gender.

The state law allows for trans students to play on Randolph High’s girls volleyball team and, apparently, use the team’s locker rooms at the same time as everyone else.

Adding to this, the trans athlete allegedly made an “inappropriate remark” to other players on the team while they were all changing, which made some uncomfortable, WCAX News reported.

One student who spoke with the news outlet claimed that the issue has become a school-wide controversy.

It’s a huge thing. Everyone’s asking, ‘So, why aren’t you allowed in the locker room?’” Blake Allen, one of the affected volleyball players, reportedly said.

My mom wants me to do this interview to try to make a change,” Allen told WCAX News. “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 claims that several other students, and some parents, have raised complaints about allowing the transgender athlete inside the girls locker room. Those concerns were all reportedly shot down by the school officials, who pointed to state law which says transgender athletes are allowed to use whichever locker room they wish.

One parent, who spoke with The Daily Signal, was reportedly “bewildered” the school would prioritize the transgender student’s “needs” over their daughter’s.

We allowed a child who is biologically the opposite sex, male, go in a locker room where biologically girls were getting fully changed,” the unnamed mom reportedly said. “The biological child was not changing and sat in the back and watched girls getting changed. That made girls feel uncomfortable, made girls feel violated and not protected.”

In response to the complaints, Randolph High said in a letter to parents it has “plenty of space where students who feel uncomfortable with the laws may change in privacy,” according to WCAX News.

Allen contests the school’s statement and its apparent solution of using more private areas such as bathroom stalls to change simply aren’t feasible.

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,” Allen explained to WCAX News.

The school is reportedly now investigating allegations the girl’s volleyball team “harassed” the transgender student, adding that disciplinary actions are a possibility.

See how backwards this is? The school is investigating the girls for ‘harassing’ the so-called transgender student when, according to one of the mothers, the dude just sat in the room and watched the girls undress. Unbelievable.

And it’s the state of Vermont that is making this horrible situation happen because of their ridiculous transgender policies. Absolutely outrageous.
