Republican presidential candidate and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley took a resolute stance against the controversial issue of allowing biological males in girls’ locker rooms. Here’s the full story.
Her powerful rebuttal unfolded during the first Republican presidential primary debate, hosted by Fox News.
Haley Spoke as a Parent
Haley’s impassioned defense began with a reflection on her fundamental values as a parent.
Live a Better Life
She articulated the common aspiration of every parent – the desire for their children to lead better lives than their own.
A Very Important Matter
Delving into the broader educational landscape, Haley deftly navigated through a myriad of concerns.
While acknowledging the current prevalence of contentious “woke” ideologies in schools, she shifted the conversation toward a more pressing concern: literacy rates among young learners.
“Crazy Woke Things”
She said, “And we can talk about all of these things and there’s a lot of crazy woke things happening in schools, but we’ve got to get these kids reading. If a child can’t read by third grade, they’re four times less likely to graduate high school. So we need to make sure we bring in reading remediation all over this country.”
Teach Children to Read
“We need transparency in the classroom because parents should never have to wonder what’s being said or taught to their children in the classroom,” she added.
Reinforcing her belief in parental agency, she also advocated for the reintroduction of vocational classes in high schools.
She said, “Parents need to be deciding which schools their kids go to because they know best. And let’s put vocational classes back into the high schools. Let’s teach our kids to build things again.”
Championing the Rights of Girls
Returning to her central thesis, Haley reasserted her commitment to championing the rights of girls.
Biological Boys Don’t Belong in Girls Locker Rooms
She said, “I will always say I’m going to fight for girls all day long because strong girls become strong women.
Strong women become strong leaders and biological boys don’t belong in the locker rooms of any of our girls.”
“I Agree With Ms. Haley on This Issue”
Several social media users expressed their thoughts on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “I agree with Ms. Haley on this issue. If being in a girl’s bathroom/ seeing them naked is so important, get a girlfriend- get married.”
A Sad World
Another User wrote, “It’s a sad world that we live in where a Presidential Candidate feels that there’s a need to make such a statement.
What’s required is that laws we already have are implemented, and men found in women’s locker rooms are charged and jailed.”
