"Joel Doe" was undressing in his school locker room, down to his underwear, when he noticed a girl in his locker room who was wearing only shorts and a bra.
It made him (and some of his classmates) very uncomfortable, so he went to the principal's office. It was there he was told that he must make the experience of undressing as "natural" as possible for the girl and just learn to "tolerate" the discomfort.
It was suggested to him that if he didn't like it, he could just change schools or be home-schooled. His parents were never informed by the school that their son would be forced to undress in front of a girl--or face discrimination charges.
Now, the boy is bringing a major lawsuit in front of the courts, shares Todd Starnes.
"The lawsuit, filed Tuesday by Alliance Defending Freedom and Independence Law Center, alleges the Boyertown Area School District shamed the teenage boy and violated his personal privacy. They are also alleging sexual harassment," says Starnes.
“No school should rob any student of this legally protected personal privacy,” ILC attorney Randall Wenger said. “We trust that our children won’t be forced into emotionally vulnerable situations like this when they are in the care of our schools because it’s a school’s duty to protect and respect the bodily privacy and dignity of all students.”
“The District’s directive to Joel Doe was that he must change with students of the opposite sex, and make it as natural as possible, and that anything less would be intolerant and bullying against students who profess a gender identity with the opposite sex,” the lawsuit states.
We will be seeing lots of these incidents if the transgender preference laws continue to take hold in our schools. Imagine if your child went over to a friend's house and was told they had to go to undress and take showers in front of children of the opposite sex.
And you, as the parent, were not to be informed about this. Can you imagine? That's exactly what is happening here in our schools--that we are paying for with our tax dollars.
If you think this is wrong, let us know! We need to speak up against these injustices against our children!
