    Why gender the shelters? Just get everyone in one.

  3. I’m pretty sure everyone, No matter their beliefs would agree that this is the worst think they could do

  4. Why the fuck do genders need to be separated during an active shooting?? Who has time for that? It’s an emergency 😡

    Do their students have sex when kept with the opposite genitalia during school shootings? That is the only thing that would make this logical. Like if there is a shooter I will shelter with whoever is closest.

  6. Interviewer: during a lockdown scenario with an active shooter or other dangerous and potentially lethal threat, what is our top priority concerning our students?

    Soon-to-be administrator: uh… making sure they don’t get horny?

    Interviewer: you’re hired!

  7. That’s shitty in itself bit who tf came up with gendered shelters???

  8. this is fucking stupid tf

  9. I’m just wondering why their first priority was to make active-shooter drill shelters separated by gender, and not, yknow, making sure everyone gets there as quickly and safely as possible

  10. This happened over three years ago. Not that it’s not appalling, but why is it making the rounds again?

  11. Gendered shelter during shootout is pretty f up

    But more F up is that they left the Trans student outside!

    Like wtf!

  12. Why do they even need to be sheltered separately? Are they going to take the time to separate boys and girls when there’s an active shooter?

    This seems like a good way to get more kids killed especially when the shooter is a classmate who now knows where all the boys or girls they are after will be…

  14. The most horrific part of this that in some cases, the Trans student might even be the Main Target. With that in mind, I’m really questioning if they might’ve possibly done this on purpose. Empathy-Void Shells of human beings.

  15. If we just ignore the transphobia for a second,

    WHY THE HELL ARE THERE GENDERED SHELTERS IN THE FIRST PLACE?!?

  16. I actually want to hurt whoever made that decision

  17. Arm trans students

    Remember during a lockdown. You’re locked in. With a murderer. Who wants to kill you. Isn’t it better to be outside and escape?

  19. Why are the shelters even gendered? Like protection from the shooter is important, but now they add a specific place. At my school, we go to the nearest safe place. But why base it off gender?

  20. Everytime I see this I wonder why they seperate the children by gender during something like this.

    The fact that she was left outside or that she wasn’t put by the girls or something isnt the problem here. The fact that there are drills for school shootings is. Americans know that’s not normal right?

  27. Well, I guess it’s the safest place to be

  28. This is so ridiculous. I remember reading about this when it initially happened and the reason was because they had separate locker rooms for gym class. When I was in grade 8 we had a practice lockdown and we only have 1 teacher for gym class. Since most of the boys were still in their locker room all the girls were put into the boys locker room with them. The gym teacher was a woman, half of the class were girls, but we did the quickest and safest action which was putting everyone in the boy’s locker room with the boy.

    You do what’s quickest and safest. We were also taught that if you were in the hallways and a lockdown was called you run into the closest classroom. It doesn’t matter the gender or grade or anything – you move fast.

  29. This is appalling, don’t get me wrong. Everything about it is ridiculous. Active shooter, everyone separate by gender because that’s more important than staying alive, etc.

    That being said, in an active shooter situation, outside is exactly where I’d want to be. Y’all go ahead and bunker down and hide, I’m just gonna leave the premises and go somewhere else.

  30. Too be fair if there was a mass shooter, I’d prefer to be outside the building too

  31. This seemed too wild to be believed. But according to Snopes this was a really true incident in 2018. The drill occurred during the student’s gym class and the teachers couldn’t decide to which locker room the student should go. The student ended up in the hallway between the boys and girls locker rooms.

  32. This is so fucking dumb.

    They’re not biologists.

  34. If this happened to me I would happily point out where everyone else is sheltering.

  35. This was 3.5 years ago. Not that that excuses anything.
