Religious freedom: Student suing school district that suspending him for stating that “there are only two genders”

Share:

EXETER, NH – A high school student and his mother are suing a school district in New Hampshire over a suspension they allege is over comments he made in school.

These comments were not any type of threats or something racially derogatory, but rather, his belief that science convincingly notes that there are only two genders, male and female.

The lawsuit was filed on November 4th in the Rockingham Superior Court through the family’s attorney, Ian Huyett.

Huyett is an attorney on retainer for a non-profit Christian advocacy organization called Cornerstone Action. The lawsuit alleges that the unnamed student’s free speech rights were violated when he made the unpopular gender comment.

The student, who is a football player for Exeter High School, claims that he was suspended for one game over comments he made after class regarding gender while riding on the bus.

The student alleges that he was in Spanish class on September 9th when the teacher asked the students to introduce themselves. One of the students stood and told everyone in the class they were non-binary and preferred to be referred to as “they” instead of being male or female.

The lawsuit claims that the suspended student never interacted with that child nor made any derogatory comments toward him or her.

Instead, while speaking to two friends on the bus ride home, he commented on how difficult it would be to refer to someone using a term like “they” in Spanish. These comments were overheard by a female on the bus who allegedly commented to him:

“There’s more than two genders.”

The student then replied to what he believes science has determined:

“No there isn’t: there’s only two genders.”

The conversation ended there until the girl on the bus began texting the student, confronting him over his beliefs. According to the lawsuit, the girl demanded to know how he could rationally explain there are only two genders. She allegedly demanded:

“Give me one valid reason why there’s only two genders.”

One can only imagine where that led the conversation, but to say the least, there was a heated exchange between the two of them. When the conversation was over, the female showed the text messages to school administrators the next day and an investigation ensued.

The student was eventually suspended from playing in the football game allegedly for the language he used in the text messages as well as not respecting gender pronouns.

Of course, the student and his mother have a hard time with any type of discipline in this case for many reasons, one of them being his right to free speech.

The lawsuit contends that this issue violated the student’s First Amendment rights as well as violated the New Hampshire Bill of rights. Additionally, the lawsuit goes a step further and contends that the school district policy violates those matters as well. The lawsuit stated:

“[He] does not deny that he violated the Gender Nonconforming Students policy. He in fact denied, and will continue to deny, that any person can belong to a gender other than that of ‘male’ or ‘female;…[the student] will never refer to any individual person using plural pronouns such as ‘they,’ using contrived pronouns such as ‘ze,’ or with any similar terminology that reflects values what [he] does not share…

“These prohibitions [gender policy] restrict the expression of a particular opinion and are not supported by any material or substantial disruption to school operations.

Regardless of what defendants may think about these words, [the student], did not use profane or insulting language towards any person while in the school building, on a school bus, during school activities, or on school property in any of the events leading up to his athletic suspension and this case.”

The Associated Press spoke to the School Superintendent, David Ryan, who said that he is aware of the complaint and the lawsuit. He promises that his office will make some type of official statement after they have completed a review of the facts in the case.

Woke US Navy christens ship named after an alleged child rapist that media honors as ‘gay rights leader’

SAN DIEGO, CA- Time was US Navy ships were named after presidents, military leaders, and important people in American history, as well as after American values such as liberty and freedom. Not anymore. 

Now, in the new “woke” military, we’re naming them after people who check off certain boxes, in this case part of the alphabet crew. On Nov. 6, the Biden administration launched the USNS Harvey Milk, part of the Military Sealift Command, according to Stars and Stripes.  

While Milk is martyred by the LGBTQXYZ community as some kind of an icon, a gay politician who was shot and killed in San Francisco in 1978 along with San Francisco Mayor George Moscone by Dan White, a former city council member, his backstory if nothing if not troubling.

When the naming of the Navy ship was announced in 2016 under the Obama administration, it immediately stirred controversy.

The naming came about after California politicians pushed to have the ship named after Milk, who was kicked out of the Navy for violating military policy against gay service members. In 2011, the policy…the co-called “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy was repealed.

 

The naming after Milk was also pushed by his nephew, who told the San Diego LGBT Weekly in 2012 that it would “further send a green light to all the brave men and women who serve our nation that honesty, acceptance and authenticity are held up among the highest ideals of our military.”

 

However Milk’s history is anything but honest and authentic. Much of what is known about Milk is that he was the first openly gay man elected to public office in a major U.S. city.

Social justice warrior California legislators created a holiday to honor Milk, “Harvey Milk Day” recognized by the California public schools as a “day of significance.”

He was also posthumously given the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Obama and was honored with a U.S. postage stamp.

According to a piece written by the Family Research Council’s Peter Sprigg in 2009, however Milk is anything but an icon.

As Sprigg noted at the time, Milk served in office in San Francisco for less than a year, having been elected in 1977 and being killed in 1978. No such medal was awarded to Moscone, who was killed at the same time. Clearly it was politically motivated.

In other words, Milk is famous for winning one election, serving one year, and being murdered, as well as being homosexual. Period.

In 1982, Randy Shilts wrote an autobiography of Milk entitled “The Mayor of Castro Street.” Shilts told of Milk that, according to him he “was leading an active homosexual life by the age of 14.”

Shilts goes through a litany of Milk’s sexual partners however a couple of them stood out. One such partner, a man named Craig met Milk when he was 17. According to Shilts, “[I]t would be to such boyish-looking men in their late teens and early 20s that Milk would be attracted to for the rest of his life.”

Yet another partner of Milk’s moved in with him when he was only 16 and Milk was 33.

That lover, Jack Galen McKinley attempted suicide a number of times, and at one point he physically attacked Milk, with Shilts reporting Milk “literally tied him up and threw him in a closet.”

So, let’s do the math…Milk, who was either in his late 20s or early 30s had sexual relationships with teenage boys—in other words, he was a pedophile.

Jack, a runaway from Maryland was described by columnist Matt Barber as “looking for some kind of father figure,” and referred to Milk as “demonstrably, categorically an evil man.”

Years later, McKinley would commit suicide.

Milk also held a somewhat casual attitude toward illegal drugs, with another one of Milk’s constituencies being, according to Shilts, “potheads.” One of Milk’s key supporters ran “a marijuana supermarket from his bustling apartment,” Shilts said. Milk arranged a number of jobs for his partner Jack, including one manufacturing “poppers,” an illegal street drug.

Shilts noted that Milk’s short term in elective office was not outstanding, with him being more concerned about advancing the gay movement than doing anything substantive.

“Harvey left little doubt that his term would be marked more by his unique brand of political theater than by the substantive tasks of the board,” Shilts said.” Almost everything that was done was done with an eye on the gay movement.”

One matter that has been widely ignored is Milk’s relationship with death cult leader Jim Jones, who led over 900 of his followers to their deaths by drinking poisoned Kool-Aid, hence the term “drinking the Kool-Aid,” said Daniel Flynn writing in City Journal in 2009.

Milk would often speak at Jones’s San Francisco-based headquarters, he promoted Jones through his newspaper columns and defended Jones’s cult—the People’s Temple—from criticism. Jones in turn would provide volunteers for Milk’s various campaigns to distribute leaflets by the tens of thousands.

Just seven months before the carnage in Jonestown, Guyana, Milk wrote the following to President Jimmy Carter:

“Rev. Jones is widely known in the minority communities here and elsewhere as a man of the highest character, who has undertaken constructive remedies for social problems which have been amazing in their scope and effectiveness,” he wrote.

The purpose of the letter to Carter was to support Jones’s abduction of a six-year old boy. The letter continued:

“Not only is the life of a child at stake, who currently has loving and protective parents in the Rev. and Mrs. Jones, but our official relations with Guyana could stand to be jeopardized, to the potentially great embarrassment of our State Department.” The child, John Stoen died at Jonestown, along with 275 other children.

This is the man whom the Navy named one of our vessels after, a ship on which men and women will serve the country. A ship that is named after a pedophile, a pederastic child rapist, and someone who helped facilitate the death of a six-year old boy at the hands of a madman.

 

On the day the ship was christened, Navy secretary Carlos Del Toro, who watched the ceremony praised the decision to name the ship after Milk.

“Ship names are important because they express what we value as a Navy and as a nation and communicate those values around the globe in every port of call,” said Del Toro.

Yes, apparently pedophilia and pederastic child rape is “what we value as a Navy.”

Who’s next, George Floyd?
