Umm, so how is this even possible?
A Florida couple is suing the Leon County School Board for allowing their daughter to undergo "social transition" in school and covering it up so the parents wouldn't find out.
The Littlejohn family has a daughter in a public school in Leon County, Florida and according to the school board's policy the parents are required to be kept in the dark on the matter.
The Littlejohns informed Deerlake Middle School in August 2020 of their 13-year-old daughter's gender confusion, for which she was undergoing counselling. They gave permission for a nickname to be used but for no other kind of social transition.
Over the next month, unbeknown to the Littlejohns, the school proceeded to call their daughter by they/them pronouns, solicit her bathroom preferences, and ask if she preferred to sleep with the boys on an overnight trip.
When the Littlejohns asked for more information from school officials, they were told that "by law" only her daughter could authorize them finding out more or providing their input. The school could give no actual legal verification for their stance, but did provide the documents they developed in secret with their daughter, a "Transgender/Non-Conforming Student Support Plan," with no notice or input from the Littlejohns. Among many directives was included a note that the Littlejohns were not to be notified at all.
These are, apparently, liberal parents. They weren't totally opposed to trying to help their daughter with her gender confusion.
They okayed calling her by a nickname, but the school took it further. Offering a choice of identity to use the boys restrooms, or sleep with boys on a school trip.
This is a 13-year-old girl!!!
What the school has done is absolutely disgusting and despicable.
After further inquiries for the legal basis of such actions, school officials gave the Littlejohns a copy of the LCS Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Gender Nonconforming and Questioning Support Guide, which states the following: "1) parents are not to be informed when their children announce that they identify as transgender; 2) children who express gender confusion are permitted to choose which restroom they will use and that parents will not be notified of such decisions by their own children; and 3) children have a legally protected right to keep from their parents information regarding their gender identity and steps taken by the district to affirm that identity."
Yeah, that's their excuse. The school board has literally passed a policy that mandates that parents NOT be informed when the school makes efforts to trans their kids.
THAT'S THEIR LITERAL POLICY! LIE TO PARENTS AND HIDE THEIR ACTIONS!
Leon County, Florida thinks that your kids belong to them. They do not give a care about the child's wellbeing or parents' wishes.
Fortunately, the Littlejohn's do have good grounds to sue. Our favorite governor, Ron DeSantis, signed into law in July a law that directly takes on these types of policies mandating that parents have THE primary role in these decisions.
Thank God for Ronny D.
Prayers that these lawsuits stop these insane transgender policies and wake parents up.
