CV NEWS FEED // A widowed single father filed suit against a New Jersey school district that he alleges “transitioned” his minor daughter behind his back.
The young girl had attended Delaware Valley Regional High School (DVRHS) located in the west-central part of the state by the Pennsylvania border.
The anonymous father claimed the school “had been calling his daughter by a male name and male pronouns for at least two months,” as reported by The Washington Stand.
Per the Stand, school officials began treating the girl as a boy “after a pro-LGBT student club’s staff advisor … asked teachers and other school staff, faculty, and administration to refer to the girl by a male name and male pronouns and not to tell her father.”
The father’s lawsuit noted that the staff member in question is not a licensed professional in medicine or psychology.
Again from The Stand:
The father says he only learned of his daughter’s social transition when a neighbor and fellow parent accidentally told him. The neighbor referred to the girl by her male name, and the father asked, “What the hell are you talking about?” The father removed his daughter from DVRHS and began homeschooling her.
The widower said he was “devastated” to learn the truth, commenting: “If a kid gets a headache in school, they have to call the parents to give them Tylenol, but they’re going to choose to allow them to identify as something?”
The girl’s father pointed out that his daughter was diagnosed with anxiety, depression, borderline personality disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and Asperger Syndrome (AS).
AS is a form of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). As CatholicVote has previously reported: “Being on the autism spectrum increases a person’s likelihood of identifying as transgender or ‘non-binary’ by up to a factor of six.”
The man’s late wife – his daughter’s mother – passed away when the girl was four years old.
Late last August, a California school district paid a $100,000 legal settlement to single mother Jessica Konen. The mom had sued the district for “socially transitioning” her then-11-year-old daughter Alicia without the parent’s consent or knowledge.
Per Konen’s lawsuit, Spreckels Union School District faculty members encouraged Alicia to use the boy’s bathroom and referred to her by male pronouns.
Per CatholicVote’s September 1, 2023 report:
Konen spoke at a school board meeting in December 2022, where she told the board members: “You took my ability to parent my child, even before I had any knowledge. I didn’t even get to show support. You asked for support. I didn’t get a chance.”
