Erin Friday, a mother from California, wants parents to be aware of upcoming legislation in California and Minnesota that will safeguard children who choose to transition.
A woman who lives in Oklahoma has filed a lawsuit against the local school district in the area after her daughter, who is 15 years old, was reportedly "severely beaten" by a transgender student who is 17 years old in the girl's toilet, as Fox News reported.
The event comes as the nation is struggling to make sense of how to categorize those struggling with gender dysphoria, many of whom have chosen medical transition, both surgical and via medication.
The incident allegedly took place on October 26, 2022, at Edmond Memorial High School, as stated in the lawsuit that was filed on May 25.
The mom is suing the school for damages in the amount of $75,000, claiming that her child had "severe physical and mental injuries, severe physical and mental pain and suffering, and severe emotional distress" while attending the institution in question.
The lawsuit also says that the transgender student had "made previous threats of violence" against the victim at school, and that police checked his belongings for weapons after the threats against the victim were reported "by another student." The case is filed against the school district.
A review of the complaint shows a clear reference to a statute that Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt put into effect on May 25.
The law mandates that kids attending public schools in Oklahoma "use restrooms that match the sex listed on their birth certificates."
According to the report that was submitted after the alleged assault and that was acquired by Fox News Digital, the transgender student who is referred to as student "A" entered the restroom and had a conversation with a female student.
A brawl broke out between the two individuals not long after they began fighting with one another.
The student who was assaulted, identified on the complaint as "V," told the police that she was in the ladies' restroom chatting with her friends when another student, identified only as "A," approached her with a question.
After explaining to "A" why she didn't want to speak with her and told "A" that she didn't want to communicate with her, "A" grew upset and asked her if she "wanted to fight" before punching her in the face. The accused attacker continued to strike, kick, and pull at the student identified as "V's" hair.
"V" told police Because of the force with which "A" punched her, she was unable to defend herself. According to the report of one buddy, they attempted to assist, but they were also struck twice in the face. One of the witnesses stated that they were concerned for their friend since the offender was "a man."
According to the observations made by the police, one of the victims suffered injuries to her "eye, face and head with a possible concussion."
