What actually happened: a teenaged male assaulted a 14-year-old girl, but no confirmation it was in a bathroom, no confirmation he was in a skirt or identifies as gender fluid, and the school's trans-inclusive bathroom policy was not in effect when this happened.

What GOP senators keep claiming: a "male wearing a skirt" assaulted a 14-year-old girl in a Loudoun County school bathroom + the school's trans-inclusive bathrooms allowed this to happen + girls are not safe. Several inaccuracies in this.

Hawley: In light of the Va. case, do you still agree there's no data to show that allowing a "biological male" into a women's bathroom will lead to increased violence? "What would you say the parents of this girl?" Thomas: As a judge, I'd follow the law.
