ACLU Director Resigns after Seeing Daughter’s ‘visibly frightened’ by Men in Women’s Bathroom

In a statement, Maya Dillard Smith, interim director of the Georgia American Civil Liberties Union, said that the “ACLU has become “a special interest organization that promotes not all, but certain progressive rights.”  Her daughter’s interests are of lesser value than that of a transgender male and because of this, she has resigned from her post.

The “hierarchy of rights” the ACLU chooses to defend or ignore, she wrote, is “based on who is funding the organization’s lobbying activities.” She did not elaborate on the group’s funding.

This realization came to Maya in the ladies room, when she saw, through the eyes of her children, exactly what the transgender movement means to the innocent.

“I have shared my personal experience of having taken my elementary school age daughters into a women’s restroom when shortly after three transgender young adults, over six feet [tall] with deep voices, entered,” she wrote.

“My children were visibly frightened, concerned about their safety and left asking lots of questions for which I, like many parents, was ill-prepared to answer,” she continued.

This experience left her unable to go along with the ACLU agenda.

“I found myself principally and philosophically unaligned with the organization,” Dillard Smith said.

“I understood it to be the ACLU’s goal to delicately balance competing rights to ensure that any infringements are narrowly tailored, that they do not create a hierarchy of rights, and that we are mindful of unintended consequences,” she said in a statement.

“I believe there are solutions that can provide accommodations for transgender people and balance the need to ensure women and girls are safe from those who might have malicious intent,” she said.

She has already launched a website, Finding Middle Ground, created to provide a “safe space” where  this discussion transgender bathrooms and the safety of kids can be had.

“How can we ask these kinds of questions without being called a homophobe?” the video asks. “How do we prevent predators from preying on kids in bathrooms?”

The website features a young black girl standing near a swing set, clasping its chain as she shares her own feelings. “I don’t want him to be uncomfortable in the boy’s bathroom, either,” she said. “I don’t want them to be uncomfortable anywhere. But what about me, too?”

More democrats need to do some soul searching and unite under Maya Dillard Smith’s newly found position.
