A California mother filed a lawsuit against representatives of the school district that allegedly facilitated her daughter’s gender transition.
The Aurora Regino, as represented by Center for American LibertyOn Friday,, filed a complaint to the Chico Unified school District superintendent and five Chico Unified school district school board members. She claimed her 14th Amendment rights were violated by her daughter, 11, who was forced to change her gender identity and hide it from her.
“The District’s policy of transitioning kids behind their parents’ backs is radical gender ideology at its worst,” Harmeet Dhillon is the founder of The Center for American Liberty. “For the government to assume this role is both unconstitutional and reprehensible.”
The Center for American Liberty wants a permanent injunction to stop the “Parental Secrecy Policy” District adopted the policy, which allows school personnel without parental consent to use powerful psychosocial interventions on children.
“Under the Parental Secrecy Policy, schools in the District are prompting students to question their sexuality and gender, facilitating their social transition to a new gender identity, and integrating this new person into the school ecosystem, all without informing or receiving consent from their parents,” The lawsuit claims.
Regino’s daughter, referred to as A.S. in the complaint, was a fifth-grade student at an elementary school in the district during the school year of 2021-2022, where she was allegedly influenced by a school counselor to adopt a transgender identity and hide it from her mother.
The suit alleges the school’s counselor, Mandi Robertson, regularly visited classrooms to instruct students on the topics of sexuality and “gender identity.”
The concept of “gender identity” It is controversial, but it has gained popularity as a way transgender people to express their feelings of “misalignment” Many scientists believe that the body is the best way to find out. no empirical evidence To support its existence, and that teaching the concept might be resulting in a “social contagion” effect on trans-identification.
Robertson was accused of violating the terms and conditions of his employment. “encourage students to explore their identity and consider whether they felt like they were not the gender associated with their biological sex” You can claim this “such feelings were normal and that students should embrace them.”
When A.S. began struggling with anxiety after the recent death of her grfather, her mother’s battle with breast cancer, and her father’s disability, she was left “feeling mentally exhausted and emotionally confused” and “wondered if her new feelings of anxiety and depression were because she was born the wrong gender,” The complaint says. “These feelings were the result of her exploring her identity consistent with Ms. Robertson’s instructions.”
Robertson is said to have invited A.S. for an arts and craft group. “the subject of the meetings quickly changed” To “a discussion regarding sexuality and gender identity,” The complaint was filed.
The suit alleges that Robertson invited A.S. to one-on-one sessions without her mother’s knowledge or consent and then persuaded her to adopt a male identity, including a male name and male pronouns.
The complaint asserts that much to A.S.’s discomfort, Robertson purportedly took it upon herself to tell other school employees and teachers to refer to A.S. by a male name and male pronouns. A.S. said that she felt uncomfortable. “stuck” in her new identity, which was maintained throughout the school year.
Robertson allegedly discouraged A.S. to discuss her new identity with her mother, according to the complaint. When Regino found out and confronted school administrators, they stood by Robertson’s actions and insisted they were abiding by a “California law.”
It is unclear whether or not the superintendent and school board members deliberately deceived Regino or were mistakenly under the assumption that such a law exists forcing school personnel to hide their trans-identified students’ identities from their parents.
AB 1266The legislation at issue only allows students to use the toilet and participate in sports in California public schools. “consistent with his or her gender identity.” California Department of Education was responsible for creating an FAQ on AB 1266, recommending that school personnel keep students’ chosen trans-identities private at their request, but this guidance does not claim to have the force of law, according to the complaint.
Even though A.S. has since desisted and resumed her female identity, Regino said she would have supported her daughter no matter what – she just wanted to be included in the process.
As A.S. is now in middle school, and Regino’s other young daughter also attends a school in the Chico Unified School District, her concern lies with history repeating itself – as her fundamental rights to direct the upbringing up her children continue to be threatened so long as the “Parental Secrecy Policy” It is now in effect.
“If the school system thinks this is the law, then someone needs to stand up for our children and let them know how wrong and damaging it is,” Regino said. “Our rights as parents do not stop as
