Transgender High Schooler Speaks Out After Hundreds Of Her Classmates Protest Her Using The Girls' Locker Room!

Hillsboro High School students protest a transgender classmate using the girl's locker room.

It looks like the city of Hillsboro, Missouri didn't get the memo that it's 2015.

More than 150 students at Hillsboro High School staged a walkout that lasted nearly two hours on Monday, and it was all because their transgender classmate Lila Perry wanted to use the girl's locker room.

Lila was born a boy but has identified as female since she was 13 years old, and she says for the most part school officials have been very understanding and accommodating towards her.

Lila hasn't been afraid to share her thoughts on the matter so far, and she's definitely not holding back now:

Springfield, Missouri Votes To Take Away Rights From Gay, Lesbian, & Transgendered People

no title

Another giant step backward for mankind.

It's been a rough couple of weeks for the LGBT community, but things don't seem like they're about to get any better.

That's because on top of states like Indiana and Arkansas passing anti-gay bills, Springfield, Missouri actively went out of its way to discriminate against gays, lesbians, and trans* people as well.

In a close vote on Tuesday, the city rejected an ordinance that went in place last October that served as protection for queer individuals.

Gary and Roxann Tackett like to eat at the Cracker Barrel in Branson, Missouri, where they regularly see waitress Cindi Grady.

Eventually, Gary and Roxann caught on that Cindi's car was in serious need of repair.

It was so destroyed from several deer collisions (oh no!) the couple initially thought the car was abandoned. The hood was strapped down and a window was missing.

Ferguson Verdict Reached: Officer Darren Wilson Not Indicted In Death Of Michael Brown; Rioting, Looting Ensues

Filed under: Legal MattersViral: News

Michael Brown

After more than 100 days of protests, a federal grand jury has determined Darren Wilson's fate.

18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by the Ferguson police officer during an altercation on August 9. Police claim that Brown reached for Wilson's weapon, while Brown's family and several witnesses claim Wilson shot Brown while he was raising his hands to surrender.

The grand jury — consisting of nine white jurors and three black jurors — decided by majority NOT to indict Officer Wilson after deliberating for two days. The jury could have charged Wilson with first degree murder, second degree murder, manslaughter, or involuntary manslaughter.

After being informed of the decision by authorities, Brown's family attorney Benjamin Crump released the news shortly before the official announcement:

"The jury was not inclined to indict on any charges.”

At 9:22 p.m. ET, county prosecutor Robert McCulloch confirmed the verdict in a televised press conference:

"No probable cause existed to charge Officer Wilson."

In a statement, Brown's family said they were "profoundly disappointed" by the decision but asked for peaceful protest. Unfortunately, that did not happen.
