Tenn. School District Facing Possible State Probe Over Transgender Policies

A suburban Memphis school district is facing a possible state inquiry over accusations that a high school is violating the regulations governing sex and gender in the classroom.

Over the weekend Houston High School in Germantown, Tennessee reportedly featured a transgender child on their version of a homecoming court. The student, who is a biological boy, was introduced with female pronouns as the crowd cheered.

The incident sparked a heated discussion on the Shelby County Moms For Liberty social media page.

“A trans boy dressed as a girl is tolerated, encouraged, and celebrated,” one mom wrote. “The loud cheers for this poor, lost child were unsettling.”

Parents stressed that the issue is not with the student, but rather school administrators and school board members who have not followed board policy. And it’s not the first time the district has been embroiled in a controversy over sex and gender issues.

KWAM News Radio has declined to name the child. And the school district has yet to reply to inquiries about the matter.

In a separate incident, there are reports that school administrators have allowed a boy who identifies as a girl to use the girl’s bathroom.

State Sen. Brent Taylor, a Republican, told KWAM News Radio that he had been contacted by concerned parents.

“Absent some explanation or rebuke of a young man masquerading as a girl at the Houston High School Homecoming Court, it would appear the Germantown Municipal School District not only tolerates this, but obviously they support and celebrate it,” Taylor told the radio station.

The Republican lawmaker said he was concerned that a biological girl mighty have been denied a spot on the court.

“Once again, this type of virtue signaling to the LGBTQ community only hurts girls. This young man’s presence in the homecoming court prevented a young woman from representing her class. This is truly despicable,” he said. “The school district is obviously affirming this young man’s confusion and by doing so, in my opinion, harming his mental health.”

Far too many school districts have allowed their classrooms to be radicalized with teachers, counselors and administrators grooming children with perverted notions of sex and gender.

And suburban school districts that had long been believed to be safe spaces are the new ground zero for this radicalization.

That’s why it’s so important for the Republican Party to embrace partisan school board races. Sadly, our public schools have become the engine driving the cultural change in the nation.

There are reports that the state education board has been notified of the incident.

“There is no school board in the state that would allow someone to identify as African-American and then show up in black face. Much less celebrate it,” Taylor said. “This shouldn’t be tolerated either.”
