After Receiving Death Threats, Georgia School Reverses Trans-Friendly Bathroom Policy

The progressive trans bathroom policy implemented in a Georgia school has been reversed after staff members said they received death threats.

According to ‘ABC News’ “Pickens County cited "many serious safety concerns" in a statement on Wednesday when it announced its decision to roll back the pro-trans gender policy.”

“School board members, staff, and students have been threatened due to the administration's implementation of Adams v. School Board of St. Johns County School District," the Pickens County Board of Education said in a statement Wednesday. "There have been death threats, student harassment, and vandalism of school property."

Pickens County has several students who identify as transgender and the district said it will revert it’s previous bathroom procedures “until it can consult with law enforcement and other safety professionals so that these concerns can be addressed.”
