Where’s the #MeToo Movement in Loudoun County?

The silence from some quarters on a “transgender” rape in a school is loud and clear.

All evil things will eventually come to light. That’s what Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) is finding out in a big way. The horrible rape of a young girl in a Stone Bridge High School bathroom keeps getting more doleful as new information is revealed. The biggest question now is, where is #MeToo? This incident should be high profile enough to get that movement’s attention, right?

Wrong.

Here are the new revelations in the Loudoun County case. The teen boy and girl had a previous sexual relationship, but on May 28 the girl did not give her consent. The boy was transferred to another school where he is charged with kidnapping and sexually assaulting another student. The latter case has yet to be tried. At a recent hearing for the original rape, he incredulously claimed that at least one of the acts he committed happened by accident because his watch got caught on his skirt. Hmph.

Such obfuscation obviously does not take away from the fact that he raped her. As #MeToo is very fond of pointing out in most other cases, No means no. But have we heard a peep vis-à-vis Loudoun County? No. The school board won’t touch this case with a nine-foot pole because it might hurt the LGBTQ+ agenda. In fact, the feminist activist group Women’s Liberation Front called out #MeToo for the imbalance of only choosing “which rape victims to believe based on what supports their gender narrative.”

This story is not just about a rape committed by a “gender fluid” boy in a girls’ bathroom. This story is about the LPSC hiding behind Title IX regulations and Virginia state law in an attempt to cover up this story. It’s about the Loudoun County school board lying and claiming it didn’t know about the incident until a conservative media outlet blew the whistle earlier this month. It’s about the high school itself calling the police on the victim’s father the day of the rape for making a scene and not on the boy who committed the offense.

This tragic rape is also not merely about the “transgender”-friendly bathroom assault by a boy wearing a skirt. It’s about the pervasive higher levels of corruption.

Loudoun’s next-door neighbor, Fairfax County, has a similar history of quashing sexual crimes. To do so, it even uses a legal firm where Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe used to work as a senior adviser. Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) has employed Hunton Andrews Kurth for a long time, and in recent years the majority of FCPS’s money has been used to employee this firm to fight Loudoun County-type cases. Both FCPS and the law firm have used Title IX as a shield to hide at least one sexual assault. Furthermore, both have aggressively interpreted Title IX to favor school administrators and not the victims. Fortunately, their felonious interpretation was struck down in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, but they intend to take it to the Supreme Court. A favorable verdict there would be disastrous for school rape survivors all over the country.

Parents and students are fed up with the hypocrisy of the woke agenda that pits actual victims against “transgender rights.” Earlier this week, students in several Loudoun County high schools staged a walkout in protest of that county’s handling of the rape cases.

As podcaster Liz Wheeler points out, what’s going on in Virginia is not Democrats vs. Republicans. Rather, it’s leftists vs. parents. Virginia is a petri dish for the leftist agenda at large. It harkens back to something political pundit Ben Shapiro observed last year: “They don’t hate you because they hate Trump. They hate Trump because they hate you.” If this attempt at silencing the rape that would tarnish the transgender agenda isn’t because they hate the average American, I don’t know what is. Every major decision under this woke, progressive administration has proven this to be an accurate assessment of the situation.

The #MeToo partisans only care about victims they can use to further leftist policies. These children are a sacrifice they are willing to make for the sake of their own power. #MeToo’s silence on this issue is loud and clear.
