Dad Speaks Out After 11-Year-Old Daughter Was Forced To Share Bed With Trans Student

via Fox News

Christian parents from Colorado have complained that their eleven-year-old daughter’s school district allegedly forced her to share a bed with a biological male on an overnight trip.

The parents discovered that Jefferson County Public Schools assigned their daughter to share a room with a biological male who identifies as a girl without notifying them or informing their daughter.

The district’s policy of “hiding information from parents and lying to students” is unconstitutional, according to the Christian legal group, Alliance Defending Freedom. (Trending: Elon Musk Condemns Arrest Of Jan 6 Protester)

“It was a bit of a shock. It was a helpless feeling,” father Joe Wailes said.

“Here I am… she was calling me and texting me from the bathroom because she didn’t want the other kids to overhear what she was saying.”

“So it’s a pretty helpless feeling when your daughter is hiding in the bathroom, she’s trying to convey a message to you, and you’re 2,000 miles away and can’t do anything.”

“It was very frustrating because all along when we were planning the trip, we were told that boys were going to be on one floor of the hotel and girls were going to be on the other, and they were not allowed to intermingle,” mother Serena said.

“And so it never crossed our mind that this could possibly happen.”

“It’s really difficult to think of our 11-year-old daughter, 2,000 miles away from home …trying to get the situation rectified on her own,” Joe said.

“She was uncomfortable about the prospect of sharing a bed with a male student,” Alliance Defending Freedom stated.

“The school chaperon asked the Wailes’ daughter if they could merely move her to a different bed rather than a different room,” the ADF said.

“While she was still uncomfortable with this arrangement, she agreed to try it for one night.”

“It then took the girl and her parents multiple requests to get her moved to another room.”

“And even then, chaperons told the girl to lie about the reason for her move because of the district’s overnight rooming policy — a policy that violates parental rights and student privacy by rooming students based on gender identity while hiding that information from other parents and students,” the ADF’s letter read.

“JCPS officials then decided to lie to her roommates, and instructed the Wailes’ daughter to do the same, telling her to say she needed to switch beds to be closer to the air conditioner,” the ADF alleged of district employees.

“The idea that that this could happen was just really not even on our radar. And frankly, on a personal note, I’ve been hearing about all these issues just like everybody else around the country. And I thought it was being a bit sensationalized. I didn’t think it was happening that frequently. And it came to our doorstep,” Joe said.

“So we want to make sure that we share the story.”

The incident occurred over the summer during a cross-country overnight trip to Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.

The district claims that as soon as the student’s transgender identity was known, room assignments were adjusted.

“Parents, not the government, have the right to direct the upbringing and education of their children, and that includes making informed decisions to protect their child’s privacy,” ADF senior counsel Kate Anderson said.

“They sent tons of paperwork related to these trips to parents and could easily inform them of such a policy confidentially and let parents work out what’s best for them and their kids. But the way the district handles it right now, it put this fifth-grade girl [in a situation where she was]… hiding in a bathroom, calling her dad, trying to figure out how to deal with this because she was uncomfortable sleeping in the same bed as a biological boy,” she said.

“And so that shouldn’t happen. Every student’s privacy is important, and every parent should be able to work through these things with their kids ahead of a trip like this.”
