Scott Smith's daughter was assaulted in the girls' restroom at her school … by a male student.
When Scott demanded that school officials call the police—they did. But on him!
Here's Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, with more:
Later that night, after a hospital rape kit confirmed what his daughter had insisted all along, the school's principal sent out an email explaining the incident with Scott—never mentioning what had happened to his daughter and where. Even when the attacker was formally charged, administrators kept quiet.
A month later, at a local school board meeting, Smith—like a lot of parents—sat in shock as the new superintendent responded to the fury over Loudoun County's radical transgender policies by insisting that nothing harmful had ever come of them. "To my knowledge," Scott Ziegler said, "we don't have any record of assaults occurring in our restrooms. It's important to keep our perspective on this," he went on. "We've heard it several times tonight from our public speakers, but the predator transgender student or person simply does not exist." Smith was irate and tried to debate the point but was hauled out of the meeting by officers and charged with disorderly conduct. "I don't care if he's homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual, transsexual. He's a sexual predator," he argued.
Loudoun County's policies aren't designed to protect students, but rather to support an agenda. And now, their failure to take action has resulted in another victim; a second girl was attacked by the "predator transgender student" at a school less than three miles away.
What can parents do to combat this insanity? Tony Perkins has some good suggestions:
Maybe you don't have children in the public schools, so you think this call to action doesn't apply to you. But let's face it: every one of us is a taxpayer, and organizations as radical as the NSBA shouldn't have the ability to fight parents [by] using our own dollars. Beyond that, this is an opportunity to hold the people we elected to represent us accountable. These school boards don't just serve the families who have kids in school—they serve the entire community. So every one of us can—and should—show up to these meetings and demand the truth about what's happening behind classroom doors.
Because, as Scott Smith will tell you, it [won't] spare his daughter—but it could spare someone else's.
It's time for action. Our children are depending on us. We can't let them down any more!
