Vanessa VanDyke, 12, faces expulsion from her Central Florida school if she doesn’t cut, or at least groom her puffy afro hairstyle, WKMG Local 6 reports.
Vanessa, who is a talented violinist, said school officials gave her an ultimatum: either cut her unruly afro or be expelled from Faith Christian Academy in Orlando, where she has been a student since the third grade.
A 6-year-old boy who believes he is a girl won the right to use the girls room at his school after his parents threatened to sue the Colorado school system for requiring him to use a separate bathroom.
Coy, who has identified as a girl since age 4, was pulled from the Eagleside Elementary School in Fountain, CO, and home schooled while the lawsuit wound its way through the courts.
He has not undergone a sex-change operation. Therefore, he is still physically a boy.
Coy’s parents, Kathryn and Jeremy Mathis, were shocked that the school prohibited their child, who has boy’s genitals, from using the girls’ restroom.
“This automatically singles her out and stigmatizes her,” Kathryn Mathis said. “It sets her up for future harassing and bullying, and creates an unsafe environment. The school has a wonderful opportunity to teach students that differences are OK, and we should embrace their differences, instead of teaching them to discriminate against someone who is a little different.”
The mainstream media refuses to cover this story because it doesn’t fit their agenda.
Female students at a Red Hook, New York, middle school recently participated in a workshop intended to make them more comfortable with homosexuality.
The 13-and 14-year-old girls learned about homosexuality and gender identity at Linden Avenue Middle School. They were also taught terminology such as “pansexual” and “genderqueer,” CBN reports.
The workshop was designed to bring awareness to the bullying and social stigma that young homosexuals sometimes experience.
At some point during the workshop, two of the girls were asked to stand up in front of the class and kiss each other, as if they were on a date.
The students’ parents are outraged.
This is not what parents send their children to school to study. A disgraceful ‘twerking’ video got 33 students suspended from Scripps Ranch High School in San Diego after the viral video was brought to the school administration’s attention.
Gawker.com reports that some 33 media students — mostly girls — were suspended for an array of school violations. The school’s zero-tolerance sexual harassment policy prohibits “verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature made by someone from or in the educational setting.”
The twerking video was filmed on the school’s campus during school hours. ‘Twerking’ is slang for a dance that involves sexually suggestive gyrating movements of the hips, buttocks and pelvic areas.
