The southern California parents of a 7-year-old boy pretending to be a girl are suing the school for allegedly treating him like a boy. Oh the horror.
The boy, known as Nicole (Nikki) has joined in on the newest trend of transgenderism. So biologically he is a male, however he acts like he is a girl.
The complaint claims that Heritage Oak Private Education allegedly “unlawfully discriminated against Nikki.” They said, “Heritage Oak repudiated Nikki’s core identity. It refused to use the name, pronoun, and gender corresponding to Nikki’s gender identity, required Nikki to wear the boy’s uniform and use the boy’s restroom, and failed to address the bullying that Nikki was subjected to because of her gender identity and gender expression.”
Uh, just because he wants to dress like a girl and pretend he’s a girl does not mean he gets special privileges. He was assigned the gender of a boy and therefore should wear boys clothes an use the boy’s restroom.
The official complaint also claims that “Nikki” suffered from harm after being treated like a boy:
Seven-year-old Nikki became depressed and talked about self-harm; she isolated herself socially and would not play with other children at recess because she could not be herself with them; she would not participate in school-related events after hours when she had to wear boy’s clothes; and she felt that the school was blocking her “inner light.” On the day when she tore a photograph of herself in half and cried out, “I hate myself,” Nikki’s parents had no choice but to remove her from the school and homeschool her for the rest of the year.
In its “statement of facts” elaborating on the details of the case, the complaint asserts: “It is a scientific truth that, for certain children, their inner sense of themselves—their gender identity—does not correspond to the sex assigned to them at birth.”
The suit refers to California civil rights law, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender, which means biological sex as well as “gender identity and gender expression.”
In a statement reported by the Orange County Register, the school said that it had accommodated older transgender students without a problem, and that it had tried to work with Nikki’s parents, but that they rejected its approach.
The parents are reportedly being represented by Public Counsel, as well as many other academic lawyers from Harvard, University of California Irvine, and Western New England School of Law.
Heritage Oak Private Education is not to be confused with Heritage Oak School in Tehachapi, a Christian school.
They can get al the representatives they would like but the facts still don’t care about your feelings. If the school were private then perhaps their pathetic lawsuit would stand a chance. However, it is a private school and they have their own rules. Follow them, or get out.
