Did you think this stuff wasn’t really happening?
According to a Fox News report, a first-grade girl in California was sent to the principal’s office at her school for allegedly “misgendering” a transgender student…who is also in the first grade.
The girl reportedly encountered the classmate on the playground, and committed the crime of referring to the biologically male youngster by his given name.
Unfortunately for the offender, she was unaware that the young person now identified as a girl, but too bad; it was off to the principal’s office with her.
Karen England of the Capitol Resource Institute, a California group that advocates for family values positions, 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.”
Fox News reveals that the little girl was “investigated” to see “whether or not she had bullied the transgender child by calling him by his original name.”
Once it was determined that she had made an innocent mistake, punishment was withheld, and she was released from the principal’s office.
As you can imagine, the girl’s mother complained to the school about the treatment of her daughter, and was reportedly “told that whenever there is a pronoun mishap with this biological boy who now claims to be a girl — the school must investigate.”
Well, of course it must – it’s 2017, after all.
