Newark transgender teen punched and kicked in school hallway

Kylie Perez is a student at Eastside High School in Newark, NJ. Kylie says she has been bullied at school since she transitioned in sixth grade.

They would call me gay and faggot.

--Perez

Last Tuesday, Kylie was walking in the school hallway when she heard a girl shout, "There's the tranny!" She was then sucker-punched in the head until she fell, when the kicking began.

It was all caught on surveillance camera.

Michigan woman stands up for her transgender son

 Grass Lakes, MI parents have a problem with transgender people.

When these people outed us and said such horrible, hurtful things, I stayed quiet for as long as I could, thinking it was going to protect my son. But, you know, they’re not stopping, and everybody knows who we are, and if we don’t start correcting the information that’s out there — educating people about what this really means — then it’s never going to stop and it’s only going to get harder and more difficult for my son and the other kids out there dying to be themselves.

With the US House acting like the Texas Senate and the Texas Senate moving like they can't punish transgender people fast enough for daring to exist, I just had to go looking for something a bit more positive.

The new DoE transgender guideline and the resulting confusion

When the Trump Administration's Department of Education and Department of Justice jointly revoked the Obama administration's guideline on the protection and treatment of transgender students in the country's schools, Betsy DeVos said that transgender students would still have civil rights protections and that the DoE would be releasing an update on how that would be implemented.

Action in the Fourth District

Recall that SCOTUS sent the case Grimm v Gloucester County School Board back to the Fourth District after the Trump DOJ and DOE withdrew interpretation of Title IX protections against discrimination from transgender students.

The Supreme Court ordered the 4th Circuit to reconsider the lawsuit, forcing Grimm’s lawyers to argue that Title IX’s protections against sex discrimination inherently prohibit discrimination against transgender students based on their gender identity.
