In my neck of Northern Virginia there are some that theorize that the entire purpose of the civil war was to sucker WV into becoming its own state, and it was a terrible failure because they didn't convince enough of the state to secede

SO they want her to "conform to her Gender identity" eh?  Well since these folks hold the Bible is literally true and infalliable too, maybe it would be okay if she say like Judith, beheads an enemy king and puts his head on a spike, or drives a tent stake through the head of an enemy general like Jael, or even leads armies into battle and becomes a ruler of a nation like Deborah?

About 20 minutes east of where I live it's gets rural as fark. The options for parents are reeaaaally shiatty public schools, or decent private, Christian schools. The people I know that live in that area hate having to send their kids to a religious school, but I they want their snowflake to get a decent education, it's the lesser of two evils.

Or they buy/rent a trailer/apartment/condo in the town I live in and send them to one of the best school systems* in the state. Too bad that option isn't very viable for most people in rural areas.

/*At least it was until the suburbanites threw a fit over consolidating with Memphis City Schools and decided to break away and form their own school district. Still waiting to see how it's going to turn out.

This little one has so much going on at 8... her grandparents adopted her, she's questioning her gender identity and seeing a counselor and being told that if she doesn't conform she has to go. She cries everyday to be reunited with her friends.

She must be feeling so overwhelmed and isolated, if there was a candidate for the Trevor Project, I think it's Sunnie.

If this was a public school, I'd side with the family but it's a private school so I side with the private school even though I am not religious and think their rules are silly, it is still their right to set their own silly rules. The family knew the rules when they signed her up.
There's a bit more information in this article:
http://globalnews.ca/news/1231597/religious-school-tells-tomboy-to-d re ss-like-a-girl/

I am getting tired of news articles where reporters aren't asking the obvious questions.
Why is she seeing professional counseling for identity/image issues at age 8? I don't think the grandparents are telling the whole story - that doesn't sound like the kid is just a tomboy. I was a tomboy as a kid, actually even now as an adult I often enjoy tomboy stuff more than girly stuff but I do love to go for facials, manicures, pedicures and wearing skirts in nice weather - cooler than pants.
Why did her grandparents have to adopt her - what happened to her parents?

Nutsac_Jim: The child goes to a psychiatrist for her gender issues, so it is clearly not just a case of being a tom-boy.


Obviously you've done some independent research as this wasn't in TFA.

I'm going to take the road the ITGs usually take about HOAs here:

They signed the paperwork accepting the school's policies on issues such as dress and behavior before they were allowed to enroll the child in the school.  If what her guardians have allowed her to do (and it is their decision because she is 8) is in violation of the school's published policies, then the school had the right to take action.

BTW, the school didn't kick her out.  They sent a letter stating what they expected of her in order for her to remain enrolled.  Her guardians removed her from the school and then went to the Farking press to drum up support, thus enraging the ZOMGtheChristianRIghtisBad crowd. They've even said they don't want to send her back to the school, so they are just stirring up trouble. The responses here are proof that you fell for it.  Congratulations, you are sheeple.

But the school is either a) horribly misinterpreting their religion so they shouldn't consider it the "right" form of Christianity or b) correctly interpreting their religion so that god himself is basically saying "get out of this school". Either way, even as religious nuts they shouldn't even want to send their kid there.

What's the problem here? The girl will be better off in a non religious school. Kids move away from friends all the time and get over it. In the long term getting out of that environment will be much better for her. Staying there will cause far more issues down the road.

Well, if she won't conform you better sell her off fast for a couple of goats, just like the bible says too. You might be able to stone her if that doesn't work.

fruitloop: CheekyMonkey: I totally remember that part in the Bible, where Jesus said to the little girl "Get thee away from me, biatch, until thou exchangest thy pants for a frock."

Actually, He kind of did say that.

Deuteronomy 22:5 - "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God."

/Matthew 5:17
//it's bullshiat


However,  all the other "sumptuary laws" of Deuteronomy are pretty widely ignored (to say nothing of how fluid those definitions of appropriate dress for various genders have been across time and cultures).    and the Christian Fundie explanation for why they pick and choose which parts of  Deuteronomy to follow (seeing as how the whole thing is supposed to be "inerrant") is that somehow a weird acid trip Peter had in Acts means that all the old Jewish laws are repealed unless they can find a bible passage in the New testament basically "re-upping" them, (so the whole God hates gays things is okay because Paul mentions it while condemning the basic sexual immorality of Nero's court).  I bet they can't find any anti-cross-dressing bits in the NT

School administrators told ABC 27 they have not accused Sunnie of any wrongdoing and simply want the family to follow all guidelines set for students.

This girl is being taught to express herself however she wishes, rather than what a fictional book instructs.  They're not wrong, TCS is definitely not the best place for her future education.

Yeah. That's what I think every time something like this comes up: "Why would you want to continue sending your kid there? They saved you the trouble of finding out they are human shiat AFTER you've already wasted a lot of time there."

I assume they want her to have a Christian education and there aren't many or any other options in the area?

But the school is either a) horribly misinterpreting their religion so they shouldn't consider it the "right" form of Christianity or b) correctly interpreting their religion so that god himself is basically saying "get out of this school". Either way, even as religious nuts they shouldn't even want to send their kid there.


Rationally I agree, but I think it's possible their opinion could be "Well, we like everything about the schools except for this policy."

I dunno man, I just work here. Religious nuts are nutty.

Think Jerry Falwell. Think Liberty University. Yeah, that Lynchburg.

Not that everybody there follows this line -- just that there are an awful lot of people who do.

The scary thing (one of many) is that this school has been chugging along on this set of standards for a very, very long time -- nearly 50 years. It makes me sad to think of all the kids they've messed up during that time.

Yes... because in the last few decades... this would totally have been appropriate in a PUBLIC school as well.
There is a lot more going on here than just the length of her hair.

a CHRISTIAN SCHOOL telling a girls parents if she doesn't conform to her role a little bit... (ie.. dress SOMEWHAT like a girl and stop running around trying to have girlfriends...) then perhaps a Christian school is not where she should be...
and suddenly CHRISTIANS are the nutjobs.

*DING*!

Fark this school indeed.  I wore jeans and t shirts and had short hair until I was probably 14, then only the hair got longer, the jeans got lower. (it was hip hugger season, the original ones).  I also wore pants, a basic shirt and same short hair to the hellfire and brimstone baptist church we attended at the time.

And if a preacher who considers pounding on the lecturn and SCREAMING the "word of god" didn't call me out on it, fark them.

They didn't wear them back then, so I am not too surprised. Pants are from pagan societies like the Persians, Celts, etc. Everyone in the bible was dead for centuries before it was occasionally used for ceremony purposes amongst rulers, and over a millennium dead before they started being used by other people. So really, wearing pants is an unchristian act, full of pagan rites, and we should revert back to how the early founds of the Church would have it.

The private school has the right to tell the parents the child must conform to their particular dress code, be it ordained by the writings in the Bible or a daily set of Mickey Mouse ears.  The family equally has the right to tell the school to get stuffed and make another arrangement for the child's education.

The paternal grandmother of my grandkids (my daughter's mother in law) attempted to enroll the grandson in a private Christian school.  They refused him admission until he got a hair cut.  Paternal grandmother called me, asking how to handle it.  "If he doesn't want to cut his hair, find a different school" was my answer.

My mother tried to enroll me in a private Pentecostal school when I was a kid.  I lasted all of three days because i refused to wear dresses.

This story shouldn't even be news.  The only newsworthy issue here is that there are stupid people out there who are actually surprised when fundamental religious types act all fundamental.

Dress her up like a little whore and tell her how pretty she is.
Groom her for her life as a happy little homemaker and teach her how to stay barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen, where the little slut for jesus belongs. Teach her to be subservient to men who judge and choose who may or may not be part of your religion because they have whims, and urges. That's how your little babby raping racket works, right?

error 303: That Guy Jeff: lennavan: We believe that unless Sunnie as well as her family clearly understand that God has made her female and her dress and behavior need to follow suit with her God-ordained indentity, that TCS is not the best place for her future education."

This girl is being taught to express herself however she wishes, rather than what a fictional book instructs.  They're not wrong, TCS is definitely not the best place for her future education.

Yeah. That's what I think every time something like this comes up: "Why would you want to continue sending your kid there? They saved you the trouble of finding out they are human shiat AFTER you've already wasted a lot of time there."

I assume they want her to have a Christian education and there aren't many or any other options in the area?

Every one of these stories is another drip eroding Christian credibility

Every time you hear of a Christian acting like a douche in the name of Christianity it affects the rep of all Christians

Doesn't matter whether it's extreme abuse like Westboro Baptists or Catholic priest pedophiles or storm-in-a-teacup stuff like this story, it's all negative PR.

Americans are abandoning churches not just for rational reasons (this Bible makes no sense) but also for emotional reasons (I don't want to be associated with dickwipes)

That all sounds AMAZING.

Should they legally be allowed to expel her for acting/dressing too boyish?  Maybe-as many above have stated, it's a private school.  However, we the people have the responsibility to correct this behavior so that the asshats don't take over.  "Freedom of Religion" is running roughshod over those who are not religious or do not follow the correct religion, and it has to stop.

Why should they love you? Is there some requirement for 'love' in politics? Last I checked, the political sphere is about doing what's best for the community, not 'love'. Doing the right thing is a choice, not an emotion.

Or maybe she thinks she wants to be a dude because she's being brainwashed with the idea that everything she likes to do is only for boys because God-given gender nonsense.

bekaye: Deuteronomy 22:5 - "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God."

Even in Jewish law, 8 year old girl is not a woman (hint: bat mitzvah).


Yeah, but in modern practice, plenty of hard-core fundie Jewish groups require girls to wear clothing that meets adult rules by age 6 (or in some places 3) and that includes no short sleeves, definitely no pants, and full tights even in summer.

Gotta love fundamentalism.

Still yeah, private school, private rules.  Perfectly legal to mock those rules on the way out though.

I like how they (and a lot of people seem to) automatically assume that a girl enjoyng boy activities these days automatically makes them a gender-identity-struggling future trans. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but you can't peg a person for something based on a few preferences, especially at that age.

As a little girl I hated dresses and loved fossils and snakes. I still hate dresses and love fossils and snakes, and am also straight and enjoy being female.

Without a grasp of basic human anatomy, the school staff are wholly reliant on fashion to determine student gender, which is of paramount importance in educating students.  Or maybe the male staff members who seek young male companionship among the student body feel that tomboys are playing a prank on them.
