Three 8th grade boys in a Southeast Wisconsin public school are being charged with sexual harassment because they did not use the preferred gender pronoun of a fellow student. The transgender student insisted on being called “they.” But according to one of the boy’s mother, Rose Rabidoux, using the word “they” to identify another student was confusing to her son. “It’s plural. It doesn’t make sense to him.” Rabidoux then told her son to just call the other student by their first name. That seems like a simple solution. But the Kiel School District disagreed and are looking to press charges against the 8th grade boys. Instead of teaching, the school district is taking sides in the culture war of gender ideology and forcing kids to do things which defy reality. And this is something parents don’t send their kids to public school for.
