King of Prussia, Pa. – While attending a training meeting in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, a parent found a urinal in the women’s room of Upper Perkiomen Middle School.
“I couldn’t believe it when I saw it. I had to check the sign because I thought I was in the wrong bathroom. It’s the first thing you see when you walk in. And, it has a bin for sanitary products disposal in it. I was so mad, I left my training in tears,” the parent told Harrisburg100.
The issue in Montgomery County is not an isolated incident.
The controversy surrounding transgender bathroom rights has swept the nation, and similar conflicts have been occurring in schools throughout Pennsylvania.
Literature in support of gender neutral bathrooms has been circulated in the Eagle View Middle School of the Cumberland Valley School District in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. A parent randomly found the literature pictured below folded up inside of a textbook.
The parent said they have found other suspicious literature occasionally being distributed by the school, and their child has complained of being the target of harassment and intimidation by a group of 6th & 7th grade students who identify as “furries.” Furries are kids who believe they are animals.
According to the New York Times, furries are a myth. However, a different story is told by teachers, students, and parents in central Pennsylvania.
Allegedly some of the furry kids wear costumes and outfits to dress as an animal for fun, including wearing tails to school. However, some furries exhibit aggressive behavior and have been compared to holding an ideology similar to LGBT or antifa groups, but they instead choose to identify as animals.
According to the Cumberland Valley parent, their child came home from school and said, “Dad, the furries see me in the hallway and call me a dumb straight white boy,” but he can’t make sense of it because the furries are also white kids.
