This young lady isn’t afraid to speak the truth!
Megan Simpkins, 18, a Senior student at Martin Luther King High School in Riverside, California took less than two minutes to blast the school district for elevating the feelings of transgender-identifying students over the safety of female students.
Simpkins’ address at the April 27 school board meeting was a reaction to a recent fight between two Tenth Graders — one of whom was a large, transgender-identifying biological male and the other a much smaller female student. Video of the altercation was shared widely on social media over the weekend.
A California high school student has slammed her district for allowing a transgender student who is biologically male to put women’s safety in “jeopardy” by using the girls’ locker room – after a video emerged of the trans teen assaulting a female.

Here is a transcript of Simpkins putting the school district on full blast:
SIMPKINS: Hello ladies and gentlemen — and only ladies and gentlemen it is and shall always be. I am an 18-year-old high school student and wanted to take this time to bring to your attention the current issue with biological men claiming they are women and in turn truly believing that they are entitled to use women’s spaces.
There was an incident within our district that occurred recently regarding a transgender woman — who really is a biological man — having an altercation with a young woman at MLK High School. It was infuriating when I had seen the video on social media, but what was detrimental to this is the fact that this man is, and has been, using the women’s restroom and locker room.
Firstly, the question we must address is why are we affirming the mental confusion of this boy and putting the safety of women in jeopardy by allowing mentally confused men to use the women’s spaces?
Of course, any male who claims he is a woman will accept it, but what about the women? What about the true girls like myself who are female down to our DNA? Why don’t we ever get a say in whether or not we are comfortable with this? The truth is we aren’t, the majority of us aren’t, and yet nothing has been done to protect the safety of these women. I will conclude with this — it all starts with you. You are in charge of the safety of us women and the kids of our parents. Please do something about it. Thank you.
Gender activists are telling women they must accept any man who claims he’s magically become a woman because he says so and then enters a female-only space where women are vulnerable or be called “transphobic”. Ironically, there is quite a bit of overlap with the gender activists and the feminists that insist that women are at risk of widespread “rape culture.”
Of course, that isn’t to say that all transgender-identifying males are rapists, but there have been instances of predators using self-identification to enter into women’s private spaces for their own sexual gratification. Take for example the transgender-identifying serial sex offender who entered the women’s changing room at the Wi Spa in L.A. and flashed his penis in front of women and young girls, or the “boy in a skirt” that sexually assaulted two girls at two separate schools in Loudoun County, Virginia because the school board didn’t protect female students, or the Peeping Tom that was able to join the Kappa Kappa Gamma at the University of Wyoming who was spotted by his “sorority sisters” with visible erections and watched one of them take a shower, or convicted rapist Adam Graham — who now goes by the name Isla Bryson — suddenly identifying as female during his 2019 trial for rape and his fervent desire to be housed in a women’s prison in Scotland.
These incidents are happening and telling women and girls to turn of the alarm bells to spare the feelings of mentally ill men will only make these things more frequent.
The entire ideology that underpins transgenderism is simply wrong — men cannot become women nor can women become men no matter how much surgery is performed or the number of chemical cocktails they ingest. Accepting that is a disservice to those who are being sold a bill of goods under this bizarre ideology that lies to them and turns them into permanent medical patients. It is not compassionate to lie to people about something as fundamental as who they are.
Moreover, video of the recent fight between the two students shows just how dangerous it can be to uncritically accept gender self-identification.
This transgender-identifying individual is significantly larger and stronger than the girl he is fighting.

And this wasn’t a one-off. This particular student was a known problem at the school and specifically targeted female students. He spat on some girls and bares his genitals in the locker room. No teen girl should be subjected to that kind of harassment.
While fights aren’t uncommon on high school campuses across the country, but families and students at MLK tell FOX 11 that the transgender student from the viral fight video has a history of erratic and uncomfortable behavior.
Parents and students tell FOX 11 that the said student has access to the girls’ locker rooms and bathrooms.
“He’s [in the] girls’ locker room, using girls’ restrooms,” said MLK student Aiden Vermeir said of the transgender student. “He spit on my friends that are girls, females. He shows his genitals in the locker room.”
In a statement released by the Riverside Unified School District, the student at the center of controversy no longer attends MLK.

All well and good that he’s gone, but the damage has already been done. Teen girls were subjected to abuse by a male spitting at them, exposing his genitals to them, and then getting into a physical altercation with a girl much smaller than he is.
It’s simply unbelievable that this is happening in the Year of Our Lord Twenty-Twenty-Three.
It’s good that this stuff is being called out — especially when it’s a young lady standing up for herself and the other young women and girls in the Riverside school district.
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
