Loudon County Leaves Students Vulnerable To Violent Sexual Assaults

On October 25, 2021, a 14-year-old male was found guilty of forcible sodomy in connection with a sexual assault against a 15-year-old girl that occurred in a women’s restroom at Stone Bridge High School in Loudoun County, Virginia.

For a variety of reasons, this case has received national attention. First, the male perpetrator was wearing a skirt in the restroom. Second, the father of the 15-year-old assault victim was arrested at a school board meeting following an altercation when he attempted to speak about the assault upon his daughter. Third, in August, the Loudoun County School District adopted a gender inclusivity policy allowing the use of opposite-sex facilities by “transgender” persons. Fourth, the superintendent of schools and the school board had been made aware of the sexual assault in May, weeks before the gender inclusivity policy was adopted. Fifth, at a June school board meeting, Superintendent Scott Ziegler—despite having full knowledge of the sexual assault—stated that “‘the predator transgender student or person simply does not exist’” and added that he knew of no assaults “‘occurring in our restrooms.’” Sixth, while this case was pending, the perpetrator was transferred to another school; at that school, he allegedly committed another sexual assault.

New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms urges Christian New Yorkers to remember the assault victim and her family in their prayers. We also urge Christian New Yorkers to be aware of the dangers posed by opposite-sex facilities use policies like New York’s Gender Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA). Furthermore, we strongly encourage all parents of school-aged children to get involved in their respective school districts and promote an atmosphere of righteousness, justice, and truth.
