Georgian transgender students are now forbidden to use the toilet on their chosen gender
The recently introduced transgender policy in Georgian schools, allowed transgender students to use the restroom that best matches their gender identity, caused more problems than it should have solved. Many schoolchildren who attended a restroom not appropriate for their gender at birth were regularly harassed, abused, and sometimes threatened with death.
On Wednesday, Pickens County Superintendent Carlton Wilson canceled this policy due to numerous complaints received.
"School board members, staff, and students have been threatened due to the administration's implementation of Adams v. School Board of St. Johns County School District," the Pickens County Board of Education said in a statement Wednesday. "There have been death threats, student harassment, and vandalism of school property."
At the moment, school officials have notified the police about student safety issues in schools and while the proceedings are ongoing, all students will be required to use the toilets according to their biological gender.
Many parents, during the whole time that politics worked, were extremely negative towards it. According to them, boys should go to the toilets for boys, and girls to the toilets for girls. Some have suggested making separate toilets for transgender children because they worry about their safety.
