In Eastern Lancaster County (ELANCO), order and calm spirits are hallmark virtues of its people. They do not go looking for fights but have a time-tested heritage of standing their ground on matters of conviction and principle.
During this 2018-2019 school year, the ELANCO community has found itself the target of an unwelcomed controversy. Namely, the confusion caused by a student, who appears as a biological female but identifies as male, wanting to be granted full access to the male locker rooms within the high school. This student has rejected every effort of the school administration to accommodate their needs. Including private facilities specifically for them. As you would expect, the community finds this unreasonable and illogical.
Unfortunately, the board is wavering, and fast-tracking a solution that goes against the will of the people by not upholding the differences of the biological sexes. In an effort to appease and avoid law suits (that the Left is pursuing anyway), the board proposes to spend $1.4 million to build gender-neutral single user facilities.
Gender neutral “private” locker rooms are just a costly smoke screen to avoid dealing with a hard issue. This school district needs to stand on the original views expressed by the community at the first board meeting.
87% of the community want a policy that does not allow co-mingling of the sexes, and 78% want it by a policy that simply separates these young men and women by biological sex. Period.
Only 22% of the community wants to spend $1.4 million to build gender-neutral, single user facilities. An overwhelming majority simply want a policy that keeps each sex from imposing itself on the other, just like it’s always been.
The board plans to approve the spending and renovations on May 13th but with your help, Kinetic Faith and the ELANCO community can turn this around and if necessary, fight this all the way through the general election in November. Harassment and law suits may come but with your help, Kinetic Faith and the ELANCO community can hold the line.
