Parents, LGBTQ allies clash over school bathroom policy in North Manchester school

A battle over bathroom policies continues in North Manchester.

Some parents have been speaking out against Manchester Elementary School allowing a first-grader – who was born a boy but identifies as a girl – to use the girl’s restroom. Nate Gephart tells  ABC 21 in Fort Wayne he pulled his kids from the school as a result:

“As parents, naturally, we have a problem with this. Biological boys need to use the biological boys’ bathroom and biological girls need to use the biological girls’ restroom.”

A meeting last night had perspectives from both sides, including Jewel Flitcraft, a teacher who supports the policy:

“…the journey that they go through and the struggle of determining who they are is the same struggle I went through with my sexuality,” Flitcraft said.

The school board says it’s out of their hands, as they’re following federal law under Title IX.
