A Michigan dad has pulled his three sons out of school because a transgender boy was allowed to use the boy’s room at the school his sons attend.
The school in question is Southwest Elementary School in Livingston, Michigan.
Matt Stewart said his 9-year-old son told him a girl who identifies as a boy was permitted to use the restroom alongside him at Southwest Elementary School in Livington, reported the Detroit Free Press.
“My son informed me there was a girl in the bathroom with him and the other kids in his class,” Stewart told WXYZ-TV.
He said a staff member was present when several children used the boys’ restroom at the same time.
“She was instructed to look at the wall, don’t look, and there was a conversation with my 9-year-old about standing closer to the urinals,” Stewart told WDIV-TV.
Stewart added, “I have three children in Southwest Elementary School and they are being humiliated and intimidated.” He said his song was left feeling as if “he was doing something wrong.”
Of pulling his kids from school, Stewart says, “Our kids are absent from school until there’s a policy in place that keeps them from being humiliated or intimidated.”
As of Thursday, Stewart’s children, who attend Southwest Elementary in Howell, Michigan, had missed three days of school. He told the news station he would consider homeschooling his kids or sending them to another school district if the public wasn’t allowed any input on the policy.
