According to a local news outlet, a male student from Rhinelander High School in Wisconsin has been charged with child enticement, exposing his genitals, and fourth-degree sexual assault against a child. Captain Terri Hook of the Oneida County Sheriff’s Department reported that 18-year-old Austin Sauer was arrested after perpetrating these crimes in the school’s new gender-neutral bathroom, which the school had created in 2019 in order to accommodate students identifying as transgender. The bathroom has now been closed until the police investigation has been completed.
As Doug Mainwaring of LifeSiteNews noted, the new fad of gender-neutral bathrooms has resulted in quite a number of these crimes. I’ve written about many such incidents over the past few years, including the assault of a ten-year-old girl by a man identifying as a woman in the U.K. last February, a man dressed as a woman attempting to photograph a woman in a female bathroom in South Carolina that same month, female students refusing to use the bathrooms if males are permitted access, and many other examples. Unfortunately, the proliferation of these crimes should not surprise anyone with a reasonable understanding of human nature.
