First Grade Student Punished for ‘Misgendering’ Another Student

If a child is dressed in pink dress with pigtails, you’re probably going to assume they are a girl. If the child is dressed in jeans and a t-shirt, with short hair and possibly a ball cap, you will assume he is a boy.

First graders are no exception to that rule. If they see someone acting in the manner of a certain gender, then thats the gender they will thank the person is. It is a no-brainer to them.

A California charter school is confusing the children though, and then punishing them for the confusion. In what is being considered a “pronoun mishap,” a first grader allegedly “misgendered” another student.

In other words, the child used the “wrong” pronoun for a boy who is in the process of transitioning into a girl.

Why on earth are children this young even being taught about transgenderism and more importantly, why are they being punished for not understanding the perversion?

Fox News reports:


Parents were furious because they were not informed in advance and were not given the chance to opt their five-year-olds from the classroom transgender activity. However, school leaders informed moms and dads – they were not allowed to opt-out – and the state did not require them to notify parents.

The latest incident occurred during the first week of school when a first grader came across a classmate on the playground. She called the student by his given name – apparently unaware that the boy now identified as a girl.

Karen England with Capitol Resource Institute said, “This innocent little first grader sees a classmate, calls him by the name she knew him last year and the boy reports it to a teacher, the little girl gets in trouble on the playground and then gets called out of class to the principal’s office.”

Capitol Resource Institute is a California-based public policy group that specializes in strengthening families. And they are working with a number of parents at Rocklin Academy upset about the LGBT agenda being forced on their children.

England said the first grader was investigated by the principal to determine whether or not she had bullied the transgender child by calling him by his original name. After about an hour it was determined the little girl made an honest mistake and she was not punished or reprimanded.

But she was terribly traumatized by the incident, England said.

England said, “The daughter came home from school upset and crying – saying, ‘Mommy, I got in trouble at school today.”

If it were my child, there would be some heads rolling, figuratively speaking. I would raise some cain and I promise you, my child would not be attending that school again.

What would you have done?
