Kettle Moraine: Wisconsin Parents Sue School District Over School Supports Trans son’s identity.
Parents are suing the Milwaukee suburb of Kettle Moraine School District after alleging that said school violated their parental rights
A Wisconsin school district is sued by two angry parents after Kettle Moraine Middle School said they were sponsoring a trans boy and using him / her pronouns.
Parents are suing the Milwaukee suburb of Kettle Moraine School District after alleging the school in question violated their parental rights by confirming their child’s gender identity. Alliance Defending Freedom and the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty filed a lawsuit in a state court on behalf of the two parents. According to the lawsuit, the Fourteenth Amendment to the US Constitution and Article 1, Section 1 of the Wisconsin Constitution protect the rights of parents “to direct the upbringing of children under their control. It is important to note that none of the documents specifically mention parenting rights.

The lawsuit also alleges that schools referring to transgender students with the correct pronouns are a form of “medical treatment” and must therefore first seek parental permission before deciding what type of treatment students will undergo should. A child’s gender identity is a question of the parents’ “own belief system”, the lawsuit said.
In the case of the first couple, they withdrew their trans child from school after the 12-year-old identified himself as a boy and took him or her to a psychiatric center instead. The parents insisted that their son was a girl because he was assigned the gender at birth. However, the psychiatric center confirmed the boy’s identity as a boy. The lawsuit, referring to her son by their pronouns, insists that the parents did “extensive research on the matter” which showed them that their son “needs to take time to investigate the cause of” [his]Feelings ”, despite the evaluation in the psychiatric center. If their son’s gender was confirmed, he would not be able to explore his feelings, the parents said.
The parents said they called the school and told the principal to use their pronouns to refer to their son as his birth certificate said. Since the district’s policy is to respect a student’s gender identity and the student insisted he is a boy, the school principal said they could not agree to the parents’ request. This prompted the parents to withdraw their son from school and seek a therapist who denied their son’s gender identity. They also claim that their son “changed” during the time he was home and not allowed to go to school [his]Geist ”about his gender identity itself, which meant that they have been shown to be correct.
The second couple, who have two children in the district, did not say their children were transgender. They said they would only join the lawsuit because they were afraid that school would start verifying their children’s gender identities if they are transgender.
Twitter users reacted to this. One of them said, “I don’t think that’s in the Bill of Rights.” Another commented, “This poor kid needs decent parents. What horrible people.” A third wrote: “To make this clear, the parents complain because THE SCHOOL RECOGNIZED AND SUPPORTED THE CHILD’S GENDER IDENTITY. Parents didn’t do this. ”The next commented,“ Parents are pulling their trans son out of school and suing for the staff using him / her pronouns … I don’t even know where to start. That is dreadful.”
Another wrote: “My blood is boiling for this poor boy. I cannot imagine the fear and anxiety that such a young person must go through in this situation.” Another commented, “Hmm, wonder why he wouldn’t tell his parents.” One commenter tweeted: “’Direct the upbringing and education of children under their control’ Did you mean to say ‘in their care’? One responded by saying, “Parents clearly don’t understand the science behind gender.”
