Paul Bixler: Trans school board member accused of entering gym female locker room while woman was topless
GOODYEAR, ARIZONA: Lindsey Graham, 41, accused a trans school board member of entering the women’s changing room in a gym while she was half naked. The mother-of-three, who goes by 'Patriot Barbie' online, claimed that Paul Bixler, 71, stared at her breasts. She said, “There was no communication between us whatsoever. I didn’t speak to him, he didn’t speak to me. He had his back to me, but there was a mirror, so when he turned around after loading up his things, he was able to see me completely topless.”
Speaking to DailyMail, Lindsey said she was at Esporta, a fitness club, when the incident took place that was reported to the police. She said, "The idea that he was in there and I was undressing is enough to have violated my rights. When I called the police they seemed to be well aware of him already. I don't think this is the first time that it has happened. They knew what card is being played, and he told them that he has had bottom surgery so he is allowed to use that changing room. It is frustrating because the police told him he's free to go and let him go back into the changing room." Following the accusation, no arrests were made and no charges were filed.
Talking further, Lindsey questioned, "What if there was a little girl getting changed in there? Realistically I'll never get undressed in that locker room now. It's not fair for me to have to cancel my gym membership and put my life on hold to accommodate and comply with his mental disorder. Every time I see him in there I will be calling the police. I sensed that the police today morally didn't agree with what they were forced to comply with. I believe they knew in their hearts that I was right. The employees of the gym were happy to let him use the women's changing rooms after he was using the men's for so long and now a sudden change."
Graham said she also made a video of Bixler entering the female locker room and shouting, "Why isn't anyone warning the women? I hope there is no one undressing in there." She added, "He is engaged in an activity which is setting a precedent for others, they now have some get out of jail free card to force themselves into women's spaces. They can violate women without cameras nearby, and intrude upon our safety and security and that is what concerns me most. This is alarming, women's rights are being violated and I'm not going to put up with it. He will suffer no consequences from this."
'I'm not a woman dressed as a cat'
This is not the first time, Graham has raised her fingers at Bixler. In December 2022, during a school meeting with Liberty School Board which Bixler, a retired teacher and principal, is a part of, Graham dressed as a cat to protest against him and said, "I'm a cat. Meow, meow. I'm not a woman dressed as a cat. I am a cat. How many of you believe and confess that I'm a cat? How many of you believe that your child or a child from this school would believe that I'm actually a cat?" reports Joe.
After nobody raised their hands, Lindsey, who dressed up in a feline costume, continued, "No one. You're right. Truth prevails over imagination. Reality exists. Discernment is innate and something that we're wired to have. One look at me, and you know this to be true. I'm a woman posing as a cat."
Voicing her anger at Bixler for influencing school children, she said, "This was a local school in my neighborhood where there was a member of the school board whose name is Paul Bixler. He's a man, he's very clearly a man. The only thing he does to identify as a female is put lipstick on. He grew his hair out a little bit, and he wears his deceased wife's clothing to school, to sporting events, to school events to fundraisers, school events in front of the children."
