A school district in Georgia has been forced to revoke rules they recently imposed to accommodate transgender students after an outcry from concerned parents.

The Pickens County School District said on Wednesday they would be returning to their traditional bathroom policies until they can consult with law enforcement.

The statement read:

"There have been many serious safety concerns raised in the past few days. School board members, staff, and students have been threatened due to the administration's implementation of Adams vs. St. John's County School District."

"There have been death threats, student harassment, and vandalism of school property," they claimed.

"The District understands and acknowledges that it has the responsibility to protect its staff and students," the statement continued. 

"However, the District has concerns that it may not be able to meet these recently increased demands."

Pickens County Superintendent Carlton Wilson said he had personally received threats following the policies, according to WSBTV.

Wilson claimed that someone told him:

"You know, situations like this brings out crazy people from both sides, and sometimes people die."

Transgender students will now be required to use a special single-stall bathroom that was converted from faculty use.

In a separate story earlier this year, Neon Nettle reported that Transgender bathrooms in schools had left girls "too afraid to use the restroom" over fears of bullying, sexual harassment, and "period shaming," according to a women's rights group.

A growing number of schools are eliminating separate sex facilities due to claims they are not transgender-inclusive and can lead to bullying of "gender fluid" students.

Some school girls have now resorted to avoiding using the bathrooms altogether during school hours because of cruel taunts from boys and a lack of privacy and dignity, according to campaigners.

A worrying trend among young girls is to avoid drinking fluids during the school day in a bid dodge the need to use the all-gender bathrooms.
