Loudoun School Board Wants to Spend $11 Million on Gender Neutral Bathrooms With Floor to Ceiling Stalls
A school district known for sexual assault in a school bathroom not only wants to make bathrooms gender-neutral but install stalls that would hide any crime or unresponsive students.
The Loudoun School Board wants to spend $11 million to install gender-neutral school bathrooms.
You know, instead of funding teachers or improving education. Oh, they’ll also cut special education funding.
It’s also disgusting the board is even thinking about this since a transgender female raped a female in a bathroom in a Loudoun school. He allegedly assaulted another girl at another Loudoun school.
The “boy in the skirt” had a psych evaluation that horrified the judge: “Over the years this court has read many psychosexual reports, and when I read yours, frankly, it scared me. It scared me for you, it scared me for society.”
So let’s make bathrooms gender-neutral and close off the stalls. In the first incident, an employee witnessed the rape behind a stall door. The employee did nothing.
The backward thinking blows my mind. Parents in the district cited safety as their top concern:
School safety is the number one issue parents, teachers, and community members say they want the next Loudoun County Superintendent to prioritize, according to a recent survey, and parents and teachers have expressed concerns about the recent sexual assault that occurred in a Loudoun County school bathroom as well as drug use in school bathrooms.
This design looks like it's specifically made to prevent discovery of what the Loudoun school rapist did. If you read the grand jury report you can see that a school employee actually witnessed the rape in progress (if behind the door) and did nothing. https://t.co/GTg1KCVJEU

ABC Washington’s @NickMinock reports that Loudoun County Public Schools is considering ending sex segregated bathrooms altogether to accommodate transgender students.

Here are some photos of the bathroom design Loudoun County Public Schools is considering in place of gender-separated bathrooms. The school system is considering other options as well.

To make it worse, the board wants to cut special education funding.
How awful. The special ed teachers in the district have been asking the board for more teachers, assistants, and speech-language pathologists:
“Language needs are increasing,” one educator said at a school board meeting.
“We are indeed not overstaffed but grossly understaffed,” another educator said at a school board meeting. “Do you all know that SLPs, we don’t get subs? We take a sick day or a personal day, there’s no one to cover for us.”
“Please do not exclude special education students in your plan for excellence,” another educator said at a school board meeting.
The school board answered by “cutting three speech pathologists, one special education supervisor, three occupational therapists and fourteen teachers.”
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
There is always money for dumb stuff. There is never any money for stuff that will help teach kids.
We should test all these policies at the school board offices.
People in the district office don’t have to deal with kids and mostly have lots of meetings to pretend like their job is real.
The board wouldn’t care because they spend around 3 hours every 2 weeks or so in the office.
Easier to commit the crime. Or will they install security cameras just in case.
“Gender Neutral Bathroom” = the men’s room.
No woman should put herself in such a vulnerable position.
I have an idea. Keep things the way they are with the exception of the teacher’s bathrooms. Those can be open to all.
btw…..Hawaii solved this long ago by turning the handicapped bathroom into an any gender facility. These spacious bathrooms have a single toilet and a lockable door. They are suitable for changing clothes, nursing, changing a diaper and have wheelchair friendly toiletry. You will find them everywhere.
That will be held to be not an acceptable solution because it’s not inclusive enough.
We’re talking a school district which wouldn’t keep a known rapist out of the woman’s room when he claimed to be transgendered.
Tell them to hold it till they get home.
That’s exactly what a huge percentage of schoolgirls already do. Segregated bathrooms are already intolerable.
Now, add boys. The result is obvious.
And are also lockable, so that if a rape or assault occurs, it won’t be as easliy detected.
Might as well sound proof them while they are at, the the criminal activity can be accomplished in private, and without immediate discovery!
Counterpoint: The specific gender theory issues aside, the problems schools face with student behavior (drugs, fights, hookups) in school bathrooms is insane (and administrative rules that tie staff hands don’t help). Swapping to that open hall design probably offers a lot of advantage in being able to police or discourage those behaviors.
Our local district just built a new elementary school that has 22 classrooms and 37 restrooms. Four of those are multiple occupancy restrooms with 4 or 5 stalls each (or urinals if it’s a boys room). The rest are all single occupancy, most of them between pairs of classrooms, half of which are handicap-enabled. For each of the multiple occupancy restrooms, there is always a single-occupancy restroom very close.
Apparently, this was the answer to the gendered restroom issue, an elementary school costing $20 million dollars and having 22 classrooms.
The worst part as far as I’m concerned is that I had to help pay for this and my children don’t even go to a school in that district, the reason is illustrated by such a huge waste of money. That entire building could have been serviced by six multi-occupancy restrooms at a much lower cost, but that would have required acknowledging actual science.
A thousand years from now the archeologists and anthropologists will be stumped trying to sort all that out.
“Maybe the smaller ones were shrines for worshiping….. Uh, I got nuthin.”
I’m guessing this county has a Democrat majority school board? The board is deliberately enabling child abuse.
They’re going to be rape rooms. You’ll see.
I am old enough to remember when schools were places of learning.
They are now: if we don’t learn our nation is about to implode and learn it fast, well…. You get the rest.
A perfect place for the gender fluid
I understand the idea of removing private spaces where a rape could be committed undetected, but it’s it really worth giving up bathroom privacy for such rare events? Other countries do just fine with floor to ceiling partitions in public bathrooms. Besides, this wouldn’t be the first time we’ve been sold the idea of a surveillance panopticon in the name of safety, and historically the trade-off is rarely worth it.
They cleverly left out the funding for the glory holes and the coin-op windows between the stalls. They’re saving that for next year’s budget.
Those are in the teachers lounge
That proposal is straight out of crazy town. $11 million? No.
At this point of insanity, it would almost make more sense (and be more cost effective) for new school construction to build a single, handicapped accessible restroom in each classroom. Give the teacher the ability to lock the door during class, and give the class somewhere to hide out during active shooter lockdowns.
Remove restrooms and end the oppression of modern toilet training, everyone should pee on the floor as nature intended.
We’re not talking to San Francisco School District here
I think that the Loudoun School Board needs another visit from the local domestic terrorists.
The solution is stop naming them by gender and use body parts. Penis room and vagina room. Or, like restaurants in hunting country, Pointers and Setters.
I think it is way past time that news stories of this nature include pictures (close ups) of the school board members who vote for this garbage. Everyone should know who they are, personally and up close.
Difficult to sympathize when parents continue to send their children to these schools. If they removed their kids en masse the entire system would collapse.,
WHY???? do the people that live in this town keep voting these perverts onto the school board>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
better question: why do parents continue to send their children to this school?
Please do an article on:
1). The next elections for this insane school board.
2) What is being done to remove incompetent or malevolent school board members in the meantime.
3). Status on lawsuits against this school board.
4). Status on what Virginia Governor Younkin is doing (or should be doing) to remedy this dangerous farce.
My comments would be felonious in nature so I shall omit them and allow you, dear reader, to envision within your thoughts what those comments would entail.
Have a lovely day in a USA that is increasingly no longer worthy of defending by patriots. Patriot efforts should concentrate, instead, of effectuating a viable Rev War Two that would make the Founders proud of our efforts.
This same school board keeps doubling down, despite courtroom losses, public condemnation, and the opposition of their governor. The members must believe they live in an iron fortress, with no public accountability. There should be a massive effort to vote them out. There should also be lawsuits. There is something sick going on in Loudon County, and it has nothing to do with honest concern about students’ welfare and safety. Rather it is only about virtue-signalling by a small group of ideologues, abetted by a larger part of the public only concerned about not being remotely associated with anyone the ideologues call ‘racist’ and ‘fascist.’ Apparently, only labels matter to many, actual policies are irrelevant.
Reform isn’t a plausible goal. The entire education system must be eradicated.
