Ready for this? Texas mom fights for her ‘transgender’ kindergartener to use girls’ bathroom

A Texas mother pleaded to her child’s school board this week to seek permission for her child — who was born a male — to use the girls’ restroom when he begins school this fall.

She claims that her kid — who will be a kindergartener — is really a transgender girl.

She also said her child, 5-year-old Kai, has been living as a girl for the past two years.

“Please understand I’m not fighting about bathrooms,” Kai’s mother, Kim Shappley told the school board, according to Click 2 Houston. “I’m fighting about her life, I’m fighting about her well-being, I’m fighting for her happiness, I’m fighting for her future.”

Shappley said she was told by the Pearland Independent School District at the end of last year’s school year that Kai would be required to use the facilities that corresponds to the sex indicated on his birth certificate.

“Every person that has a degree who has studied this says that it is wrong to tell my child for anyone to tell my child that she cannot use the facility that aligns with the gender she identifies with,” Shappley told the school board.

The district published this statement:

“Pearland ISD’s stance on transgender students remains children whose parents declare them transgender must go to the bathroom for the sex indicated on their birth certificate. Such students have also been allowed to use a private bathroom (such as in the nurse’s station) if they are so inclined. All Pearland ISD kindergarten classrooms have a private, gender-neutral bathroom within the classroom for student use.”
