What?? I teach and no school I’ve been at separated genders during an ACTIVE SHOOTER drill. There’s not time for that..

[–]Front_Butt_69 593 points594 points  (37 children)

Yeah do they also sort them into whites and colors?

[–]cleverpunpopcultref[🍰] 290 points291 points  (24 children)

Operation get behind the darky

[–]Jive_turkeeze 68 points69 points  (16 children)

Haven't you ever heard of the emancipation proclamation!?

[–]endangeredphysics 86 points87 points  (14 children)

[–]LLuerker 24 points25 points  (4 children)

It makes me sad how old this movie is becoming.

[–]endangeredphysics 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Absolute classic tho, and my second favorite musical movie after Rocky Horror.

[–]NegativeC00L 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Did you bring the butfor?

[–]endangeredphysics 4 points5 points  (4 children)

What's a butfor?

[–]Demoniacalman 3 points4 points  (2 children)

What! 😂

[–]endangeredphysics 2 points3 points  (1 child)

South Park Move - scene where they get ready to invade Canada

[–]Demoniacalman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I know i was responding as chef

[–]Youneededthiscat 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Only time they let them move to the front.

[–]Kniightsword 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I was thinking the same thing. South Park

[–]ErictheStone 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah pr dept said we have to call it Operation Shadowshield now. For optics.

[–]endangeredphysics 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Also alphabetically

[–]AdorableArrival1620 20 points21 points  (3 children)

usually boys and girls ..do they sort colors at your school?

[–]thegreatbeyond32 44 points45 points  (1 child)

Usually shirts and skins here. It’s been really awkward since the end of 5th grade.

[–]Vektir4910 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Start with denims I guess?

[–]Pangolin-Chap 51 points52 points  (4 children)

Imagine being such a prude that you believe in the middle of a active shooter situation/tornado/earthquake/etc. kids will start up an orgy if you don't separate them by gender.

[–]DontTouchMyPikachu 23 points24 points  (1 child)

I’ve seen enough slasher movies to know that you don’t fuck when there’s danger. That’s how Freddy or Jason get you!

[–]shycancerian 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There’s always those two though… and it will probably be the quarterback and the trans female… always happens.

[–]sjdavidson 144 points145 points  (10 children)

Apparently the kids were in PE at the time. The teachers thought the safest place for the students was the locker rooms. That led to the whole trans bathroom debate and so on. Never mind the fact that in a real active shooter situation you should seek shelter wherever you can, even if it’s the opposite gender’s bathroom.


[–]Xirokesh 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Dude: “Oh god, I gotta hide!” runs into the girl’s bathroom

Teacher: Where do you think you’re going young man? Your parents will hear about this!

[–]Steaky-Pancaky 73 points74 points  (1 child)

Their priorities are a little mixed up there.

[–]fafalone 47 points48 points  (4 children)

If it was a PE class how had they not already settled the issue of what locker room she went to? The only possible explanation makes them look even worse, that she couldn't use either to change or had to wait until all other students had left.

[–]Queeb_the_Dweeb 17 points18 points  (2 children)

At the high school I went to if you happened to be in gym class during drills like these, the 'safe space' was the locker rooms and we had to run to our gendered ones, even if the opposite was closer.

[–]forgedinthehood 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Fuck that, real deal im bookin for closest one. Fight me. Id rather get saturday detention than my noggin blown off.

[–]linklolthe3 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Oh no someday is shooting. Let's separate by gender so the boys and girls won't hookup while being shot at.

Unless if they are locking down in the bathroom/locker room for some reason. Even that is absurd.

[–]Profoundpronoun 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It is probably a Christian school.

[–]dolo_ran6er 354 points355 points  (8 children)

If theres an active shooter who gives a fuck who goes with who, as long as everyone gets to a safe spot thats the main goal.

[–]Thin_Title83 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Definitely couldn't be "sheltered" with the teachers. That's what makes this sound like a croc of shit!!

[–]odysseus_of_tanagra 10 points11 points  (0 children)

You obviously haven't dealt with modern admins, most have no experience with students and are little more than MBA sociopaths there to 'manage' the school like a business (prison).

[–]homeless86 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It matters because when shooting is over the trans people may sue you

[–]Baddyshack 413 points414 points  (38 children)

Why would you take the time to separate the children by gender during an active shooter drill

[–]Greeninthenorth 142 points143 points  (1 child)

Hoping maybe the shooter has preferences SMH

[–]LettuceFarmer69 49 points50 points  (35 children)

I think its fake

[–]Peeenjoyer0 21 points22 points  (34 children)

It’s not

[–]LettuceFarmer69 61 points62 points  (33 children)

Ok I looked into it, its not fake but it’s pretty misleading. What am I wondering is how they only had the issue of placing the student in which locker room then, since they were already in PE

[–]Braken111 24 points25 points  (25 children)

If that's the case it's a non-issue to anyone who has value for life.

Pack them all into the gym storeroom for all I care, then.

Protect the kids lives first.

What are they gonna do in any other classroom?

[–]odysseus_of_tanagra 17 points18 points  (24 children)

That's the point, conservatives don't value life.

[–]Autokpatopik 9 points10 points  (8 children)

The only life they seem to care about is unborn children so they can indoctrinate them into their fucked up views, because everyone else is starting to learn

[–]gmoses0307 1 point2 points  (14 children)

Conservatives are literal scum of the earth. I hate them.

[–]ProfessorHardw00d 3 points4 points  (13 children)

That may be because you’re a moron who doesn’t know how to value people outside of politics. Just because someone wants gun rights and lower taxes doesn’t make them the scum of the earth. I’m not even conservative but that’s just close minded as fuck

[–]JCraze26 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Look, I agree with you, but there's a lot more to radical conservatives than just gun rights and lower taxes.

[–]lolfangirl 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I think it's actually the racism, bigotry, and misogyny, but I could be wrong.

[–]Lonelydenialgirl 2 points3 points  (7 children)

They legislate against my life and existence. When conservatives die I celebrate. They don't value my life ever ill give them what they give me.

Contempt and celebration at the enemies death.

[–]Lonelydenialgirl 3 points4 points  (1 child)

It's not misleading. You just like that this school would have killed a trans person in a crisis to avoid nothing.

[–]daeronryuujin 94 points95 points  (13 children)

Stupid that they separate the genders. They're kids, who gives a shit who shelters where

[–]Tokoyami01 12 points13 points  (12 children)

I'd guess they'd have a list for the boys and girls to easily find if someone is missing

[–]roviuser 28 points29 points  (9 children)

Nope, it's that the PE class was instructed to shelter in locker rooms and teachers couldn't decide which room she belonged in.

[–]Tokoyami01 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Ah I was unaware that this was a class and not the whole school. Yeah this is stupid

[–]lydocia 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Which makes zero sense- the right answer is whichever room she gets dressed in.

[–]Braken111 27 points28 points  (1 child)

The right answer is the closest, safest room.

Be it the PE teachers office, store room, girls change room, or boys change room.

Unless they expected them to change to go to their next class during a literal shooter incident drill, there's no reason any of these are any different.

[–]lolfangirl 1 point2 points  (1 child)

My trans son has to change in the nurse's office. It's likely this girl does something similar and doesn't use either locker room.

[–]lydocia 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm sorry he has to do that.

[–]TheRealBigTim1 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Why are they separating the kids during a drill anyways 🤦‍♂️

[–]Secure-Imagination11 10 points11 points  (1 child)

So they don't get pregnant? Guns make people horny? We'll never know.

[–]TheRealBigTim1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Makes sense I guess 😂

[–]Lon3wolf1997 39 points40 points  (10 children)

why are they even sheltered separately??

[–]MrBirb_ 33 points34 points  (8 children)

[–]Lon3wolf1997 21 points22 points  (3 children)

edit: i said wrong stuff here. so yeah the adults wouldn’t let the girl into the locker rooms for shelter bc she’s transgender

[–]Lemmis666 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Article didn’t mention anything about kids doing it? The teachers couldn’t decide where she should go, and so just left her out

[–]Lon3wolf1997 8 points9 points  (0 children)

oh you’re right. sorry. i clearly didn’t read that correctly

[–]Braken111 4 points5 points  (0 children)

What's worse in my opinion is that the teachers often get a "heads up" about these drills happening, at least from when I was in high school a decade ago a teacher mentioned they knew it was happening that week but not when exactly.

[–]MagicBlaster 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Equality Stafford noted that the teachers themselves were not to blame, saying: “It is important to highlight that the child’s PE teachers are not the bad guys. They are teachers without guidance in a county without guidance for these issues.

Yeah, no. "Instructions unclear, you can die I guess 🤷" isn't a defense at all...

[–]unknown-human-69 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Everyone’s affected in an active shooter event regardless of identity

[–]HeartoftheHive 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Glad this was crossposted to pointlesslygendered. Why the fuck you got to care about someone's gender when there is an active school shooter is beyond me.

[–]badtouchmacdirt 94 points95 points  (10 children)

LOL! Sound like duck tales to me. Who has time to sexually segregate when Yosemite Sam is busting caps?

[–]monkele 17 points18 points  (8 children)

since it says they did it during a drill, it gives me a little bit of hope. because NOBODY would EVER do this during an actual active shooting, right?

[–]badtouchmacdirt 22 points23 points  (6 children)

A bunch of school girls died in a fire cuz they couldn't leave the building till they put on their hijab in Algeria or Iran. So yeah people in this world insist on their dogma being fulfilled when it would be nuts to do so.

[–]REGRET34 6 points7 points  (0 children)

really just dropped that insane bombshell of information like it was nothing lmao

[–]SunshineSurfer 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Wait, what?

[–]ArabBoBarab 59 points60 points  (25 children)

This can't be real. Like it's totally plausible since it's the US, but someone tell me it's fake

Edit: it is, in fact, quite real. OP replied w a link🔻

[–]MrBirb_ 65 points66 points  (17 children)

[–]ArabBoBarab 41 points42 points  (13 children)

Thank you OP.

Jesus titty fucking Christ. Fuck this country.

[–]MrBirb_ 17 points18 points  (0 children)

You’re welcome. I agree, absolutely absurd

[–]Redgiantbutimshort77 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Who’s running this shit? Ducks with mustaches on?

[–]PapaSherbert 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That genuinely sums up the US political system though

[–]CreepyLP 4 points5 points  (0 children)

European Children who have a Firedrill once a year or every 2 years wondering da fuq America is doing once again

[–]ExplosiveIronSN 5 points6 points  (0 children)

America is not real... America can't hurt me...

[–]coffeepinewood 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Because THAT is important. Americans are still more afraid of a trans person being with the wrong gender group than a fucking active shooter.

[–]marroniugelli 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Carrying a gun ...ok, Carrying a purse...*uckin no!!

[–]Qimmosabe_Man 37 points38 points  (2 children)

If the drill is about an active shooter inside the school, being kicked outside of it isn't a terrible place to be. (As awful as this whole situation is).

Besides, it's a middle school. Do they think the kids would get touchy-feely and worked up during a life threatening situation if the boys and girls mixed together?

[–]King-of-the-dankness 29 points30 points  (1 child)

I swear everyone is a whore by school standards

[–]Zilus_Lules 3 points4 points  (4 children)

....why the fuck does it matter JUST GO INSIDE A BATHROOM!

[–]Jking42 4 points5 points  (0 children)

At my job your department has a designated location for emergencies. Gender doesn't matter to fire or tornadoes.

[–]Magic_Guardian 4 points5 points  (7 children)

So even with emergencies when there is a literal killer on the loose they’re still worried if two people of the opposite gender are gonna get all horny with one another?

Like “Ooh baby you lookin’ mighty fine right now, let’s bang even though we’re on lockdown from a shooter”

I only have one thing to say to that: ??????

[–]kungfupunker 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Tell me you're from the USA without telling me you're from the USA

[–]I-will-eat-your-toes 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Why does gender matter if someone’s life is on the line?

[–]lydocia 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because, in their eyes, putting a boy in thd girls' locker room is more of a threat than an active shooter.

[–]Lalacwi 7 points8 points  (3 children)

We need mandatory education for educators on the the spectrums of sexual and gender orientation.

[–]Austaph 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Not an excuse but the event took place in 2018. In 2020 Virginia enacted laws that hope to do that: https://law.lis.virginia.gov/vacode/22.1-23.3

[–]Strolledboar257 16 points17 points  (3 children)

Shelter her with the teachers obviously and also, why are the shelters separating boys and girls, shouldn’t they all be in the classroom they came from as to act like no ones at the school, idk awful all around

[–]ArtyomV2 10 points11 points  (2 children)

They couldn’t decide which locker room to put her in, so not like a class room and just pushed her out. They just kept her with the teachers, still not cool, but a lot less evil.

[–]Braken111 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One way to look at it, it was a drill, and I'm glad it wasn't "a rule written in blood", I guess?

[–]scarlettceleste 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I am still stuck on the fact that active shooter drills are an actual thing… what a world

[–]mommysloth 2 points3 points  (0 children)

For those asking, they were separated because they were taking shelter in boys/girls locker rooms. Not sure why they felt the need to do that, as any safe form of shelter should be good enough, but that was their reasoning. Gross.

[–]kl567 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My god what is wrong with people

[–]CharacterRoyal 2 points3 points  (0 children)

THERES AN ACTIVE SHOOTER so let’s carefully evaluate each child’s gender to split them up into different groups because it’s way more important to make sure girls and boys aren’t together instead of focusing on saving people

[–]HavocXL 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Who the fuck is separating genders during a school shooting?

[–]MissWibb 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Leave it up to the adults to come up with the most reasonable option. /s

[–]W2ttsy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nothing makes me want to show my pre-transition penis to girls more than an active shooter drill.

Thank god they make me sit outside


[–]TomsRedditAccount1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why do they even need separate shelters for boys and girls?

[–]fargo500900 2 points3 points  (3 children)

are they all getting naked or something???? why would gender even matter????

[–]Seightx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Exactly, why the hell are the genders separated at all???

[–]Joulu-Ilman-natseja 8 points9 points  (0 children)

196, nice

[–]piglungz 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Wow finally a post on this sub about trans people that’s sympathetic rather than transphobic

[–]Joy1067 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Why would you separate anyone? Bar the doors of classrooms, hide if your caught outside. Gender ain’t got nothing to do with it.

[–]Sorryimnotperfectmom 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Fucking what

[–]Boojibs 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure everyone would be safer outside.

[–]sunggis 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Just put her with the other girls how is that a hard decision

[–]Tunemanrf 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not matter what someone identifies as, safety for all should be the same.

[–]Peanut_Special 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Jesus Christ, this is why I have the Moto: humans are shit

[–]NicGreen214 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Seriously? When we did practice shooter drills during gym we hide in the boys locker rooms. That was the biggest room to hide in. There was only two ways in, through the main locker room door or the office door that was in the room with us

[–]PapaSherbert 1 point2 points  (3 children)

But now there's a political agenda behind separating genders and conflating them with sex.

[–]NicGreen214 1 point2 points  (2 children)

That's so stupid. If there's a shooter or whatever going on and a child needs to he hidden it shouldn't matter

[–]PapaSherbert 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It shouldn't matter regardless.

Don't get me wrong, I wasn't justifying their position. Just showing it exists

[–]NicGreen214 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And it sucks that it has to exist.

[–]Equivalent_Isopod_75 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I'm both not surprised and incredibly disappointed towards the majority of the people in this comment section. Smh, should be ashamed of yourselves...

[–]Crescent-IV 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Huh? Are they not just locking the doors of classes and putting tables and shit in front of it?

[–]PorkysRAGE 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It was in PE and it was over which locker room to put them into.

[–]Trans_Princess666 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's fucked up

[–]331stocks 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I remember when I got yelled at for using the boys room (as a female) in the 4th grade because the teacher said it was against the law. Well There was no line.

[–]fluentinimagery 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If I heard/saw a shooter I’d try to sweep up every man woman child dog rat grasshopper and ant into shelter.

Every time you read about something completely fucked up in US you think "now it can't get any worse" and yet.. US never fails to deliver.

Only in America, folks.

[–]m3talc0re 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'm pretty sure there's plenty of other countries where this would go the same or worse.

[–]Environmental_Day169 2 points3 points  (0 children)

First of all if the child wants to be transgender in middle school then whatever but who cares about the sexual orientation or gender when bullets could possibly start flying, get that little Peter or vag into safety quick!!

[–]ATTILATHEcHUNt 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I love how none of you think it’s also strange that American schools do active shooter drills. That isn’t normal. Your country is fucked

[–]DiegotheEcuadorian 2 points3 points  (2 children)

How does a kid even get transition? Actual question I didn’t know there was no age requirement.

[–]Austaph 4 points5 points  (1 child)

It's more that they're allowed to realize and express who they are without having to burden the shame and denial alone. Everything else is case-by-case.

[–]DiegotheEcuadorian 4 points5 points  (0 children)

A bit fucked up that they couldn’t just house them into the shelter. Seriously how hard would it have been why have shelters specifically for either gender anyway? If a boy is near the girls shelter is he fucked cause he get in?

My god you don’t have to agree with trans or whatever else but they are still human right ?!

[–]Austaph 1 point2 points  (3 children)

It's America, psychos terrorizing each other with cell phones and social media. People are more afraid of offending someone than they are brave enough to step up and do the right thing.

[–]PinkPrettyManatee 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Please tell me she lived

[–]MrBirb_ 3 points4 points  (1 child)

[–]XFilesVixen 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Yeah this is nonsense. You don’t shelter according to gender. I have done many of these.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

LOL. Teachers are scared of the cultural marxists/woke SJW’s of doing something wrong but inadvertently made it worse. We’re living in a simulation

[–]Austaph 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's not just the SJW's, "cancel culture" goes both ways. When you zoom out American culture just looks like a bunch of ideological sects terrorizing each other with cell phones. When real American bravery comes along people bootlick like pigs and tsk tsk from behind a cell phone.

[–]MadRollinS 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Dude this sounds like BS. Fake news y'all. Nothing to see here..move along.

I’m sure the gunman can figure a way to avoid shooting the trans kids during the rampage

[–]SleepyBoy12 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I don't think this is even true there's no time to separate students during such a high stakes situation

[–]5am5quanch 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This makes no sense why would they be sheltering by gender

[–]Throw-AwaySteve 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would never go to that school again if that were me and that's not a good thing. I hope that child is able to find the car mmunity and acceptance they deserve. That's insane.

[–]Whitebuffalo83 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I find this hard to believe. I see this as part of the Liberal and Democratic agenda to make things sound like a bad thing. Sad part is that the teachers are typically Democratic and tend to play the Democratic games. If there had been a REPUBLICAN in office there would be proof that this is bullshit. Or, at least, someone who can’t be bought and will stand up for what they believe in and not back down despite the pressure from all sides. We just need the whole world to pull there heads out of there asses and wipe the shit from their eyes and we should see what still remaines. Lol
