The plot to storm the girls’ bathroom started with a Snapchat message and ended with a knee to the crotch.

It all went down at North Pole High School in North Pole, Alaska — a small, Christmas-loving city just southeast of Fairbanks — on the morning of April 4. The Snap at issue: a student transitioning from female to male posted a selfie from the boys’ bathroom.

Some boys at the high school who saw the selfie, however, were angry, and decided they would walk into the girls’ bathroom to take their own Snapchat selfie “as a form of protest,” Fairbanks North Star Borough School District Superintendent Karen Gaborik told The Washington Post.

But they would not get far.

The first boy to enter the girls’ room was met by a girl ― who kneed him in the groin. With that, the “protest” was over.

And now the girl has been expelled, her family told The Post.

The incident has ignited a local controversy as some question why the girl, who was unconnected to the transgender student, has been punished for using “excessive force,” and whether the national frenzy over transgender people’s bathroom access in schools fueled the boys’ protest. Gaborik would not confirm whether the girl was expelled, citing student privacy, but said all seven boys involved in the protest were also disciplined for “attempting to enter the girls’ bathroom.”

Shocking moment a 14-year-old Syrian teen gets attacked inside the girls bathroom at Chartiers Valley High School in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania.

The man, said to be an intern at a hospital's burns centre, filmed himself abusing the helpless pooch before uploading the clip on a popular messaging app as a showoff. He was punishing his Shiba Inu, named 'Strawberry', because the pet had defecated next to his bed, according to reports.

Scrutiny over the girl’s punishment began Friday when state Rep. Tammie Wilson, a Republican from North Pole, publicly criticized the school’s handling of the case during an unrelated news conference, saying it sent the wrong message to young girls. (Wilson said the girl was “suspended,” which the girl’s older sister corrected in a widely shared tweet.)

“I don’t care why the boys were in the bathroom,” Wilson said. “I just wanted to make sure I had this opportunity to tell those young ladies at North Pole High School . . . if you ever feel threatened for your safety, whatever force you think you have to give, I will stand behind you. And so will your community. Not for those boys who were where they didn’t belong.”

The girl’s family declined an interview with The Post, but said they will be seeking an appeal of the expulsion.

Wilson said Friday that she learned about the incident from a constituent and had been in touch with the girl’s family. The Republican lawmaker said the boys were “blocking” the girl from leaving the bathroom. “Was she not supposed to protect herself?” she said in a follow-up interview with the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.

Doctor, nurse help save young boys in separate near drownings at hotel pools

Doctor, nurse help save young boys in separate near drownings at hotel pools A doctor and nurse were credited with helping to save the lives of two young boys who nearly drowned Wednesday at Orlando-area hotel pools, a spokesman for Orange County Fire Rescue said. The first call was around 1:30 p.m. at the Sheraton Orlando Lake Buena Vista Resort, 12205 S. Apopka Vineland Rd. for an after a 6-year-old Chicago boy pulled out of the pool unconscious, OCFR spokesman Mike Jachles said. A nurse who was on vacation and at the pool came to the boy’s aide, giving the boy CPR, according to Jachles. The boy regained consciousness by the time paramedics arrived. He was taken to the hospital in fair condition, Jachles aid. The second call was just before 3 p.m.

She added, “I said, ‘Good for her.’ I would have taught my daughter to do the same.”

The extent of the boy’s injuries are unclear. The Daily News-Miner reported that the boy was referred for medical treatment, although Gaborik could not confirm whether he sought it.

“It wasn’t like a 911 call,” she told the News-Miner. “It was a health aide saying, ‘Hey, you should really go see a doctor.’”

Gaborik said that the incident happened amid an ongoing conversation within the school district “regarding transgender students at NPHS and the use of restrooms” — one that has erupted nationwide in recent years with the introduction of “bathroom bills” in state legislatures, such as North Carolina and Texas.

In Alaska, the debate over transgender people’s access to bathrooms played out most loudly in Anchorage, the state’s largest city, where voters defeated a referendum at the ballot in 2018 that would have required people to use public bathrooms and locker rooms that correspond with their assigned gender at birth. That regulation would also have applied to schools.

Some say protesting during the national anthem is a constitutionally protected form of free speech and an effective way for professional athletes and others to express frustration that the country isn’t doing more to weed out officers who don’t value the lives of minorities.

Gaborik said that in her Fairbanks-area school district, which is geographically “larger than the state of Connecticut,” transgender students can choose to use a gender-neutral, single-stall bathroom that corresponds with the student’s gender identity, or the one that corresponds with the student’s gender at birth. The decisions are made on an individual basis for each student based on whatever is most comfortable, she said. At North Pole High School, about 16 transgender students have attended the school in the last three years, she said.

In this case, she said the “group of boys at the school was upset about the public nature of the [transgender student’s Snapchat] post and restroom use.” A Title IX investigation conducted by administrators revealed that when the boys attempted to enter the bathroom, there was “not evidence that the boys were threatening any student or using any type of force toward students,” she said. They retreated right after the first boy was hit, she said.

She added that if students feel threatened in any situation, they’re encouraged to seek out staff, not use violence.

“We do not advocate physical or psychological violence as a means to attain safety,” she said. “The entire school community needs to work together to ensure that all students feel welcomed, safe and are able to learn and thrive. We recognize that parents, students and members of our community feel strongly about these issues, but advocating for the use of violence does not contribute to a safe learning environment.”

Still, some critics wondered whether the boys’ mere presence in the girls’ bathroom, or right outside the door, made the girl feel threatened and justified a split-second decision to use force.

Mikki Kendall, a Chicago-based feminist writer, questioned on Twitter in one widely shared tweet, why after all of the “bathroom panic bills about trans kids, when a group of cis boys actually harass girls in a bathroom the girls are punished for defending themselves?”

Gaborik stressed that all students involved in the incident are entitled to due process and can appeal disciplinary action. The girl’s family said it plans to begin that process Monday.
