Soccer coach, 14-yr-old daughter sue VT school after biological male allowed in girls locker room

A Vermont school district that tried to bully a student-athlete into conforming to their transgender politics will face the girl and her father in court for illegally “trying to shove their false ideology down everyone’s throat.”

Blake Allen, who was initially suspended for voicing concerns about sharing a locker room with a transgender student, and her father Travis Allen are taking a stand against the mainstream media’s insistence that transgender policies support all students.

“I was in the locker room and the trans student walked in and the rest of the team was in there. I was really uncomfortable, and I left, and I told the school, and they just shut me down, that there was nothing they could do,” Blake told “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“I was later suspended because I voiced my opinion that a male shouldn’t be in the women’s locker room.”

According to the lawsuit, the school turned a blind eye to “death threats” made against Blake by the transgender student, who said after the locker room incident “I’m going to f***ing kill Blake Allen.”

During an appearance on “Fox & Friends First,” Blake said she later shared her feelings with a friend and school administration felt she violated the other’s student’s rights by “feeling uncomfortable.”

“It was kind of annoying that that was allowed to happen and I was unprotected and got suspended for talking about it,” Blake said.

Host Todd Piro was dumbfounded.

“Can you believe that you’re literally the one who is accused of doing something wrong in this situation here,” Piro asked. “One, for being uncomfortable as a 14-year-old girl that there is a guy in your locker room and two, for telling a friend about it? What world are we in that you’re the one who is accused of doing something wrong?”

Blake still can’t believe the district’s response to her discomfort and complete lack of response to the transgender student’s threats.

“The school is just failing all of us,” Blake said. “I was supposed to be suspended because I wanted to talk about something? That just doesn’t seem right.”

Travis was suspended without pay from his role as Randolph Union Middle School soccer coach after standing up for his daughter on social media.

“I made a social media post and referred to the male student as a male, and I was punished because I misgendered him,” he said. “If your kids are not comfortable, then you need to speak up for them. That’s what we’re here for. We’re parents. We’re here to protect them.”

Orange Southwest Unified School District Superintendent Layne Millington accused Travis of misgendering the student on purpose, claiming the post was made out of spite and not because the district was trying to “shove their false ideology down everyone’s throat.”

“Such conduct is unprofessional and unbecoming, and flies in the face of the Vermont Principal Association’s athletic regulations, Vermont State regulations, and the RUHS Middle-High School expectations,” Millington wrote in a letter last week.

Blake and Travis said they were left with no recourse but to sue so they enlisted Alliance Defending Freedom senior counsel Tyson Langhofer to fight the censoring of their objections.

“I had no other options,” Travis said. “We didn’t know what to do… This is why we’ve gone this route. Because when you’re being bullied by the head administration at the school, where else do you turn? They want me to fall in line and do as I’m told and not offer any of my own opinions.”

Blake’s suspension was eventually lifted, following an outcry from the public and the filing of the suit, but Travis is still suspended without pay.

“The first amendment doesn’t allow you to retaliate just because you expressed an opinion that the government disagrees with,” Langhofer said. “I think that’s what’s really wrong here. They are punishing  Blake and Travis for simply having a different opinion and they are really trying to shove their false ideology down everyone’s throat. That’s wrong and it’s unconstitutional.”

Langhofer was glad the school reversed its decision on Blake but said the district still needs to make amends to Travis, and that the district’s retribution must be remedied.

“We’re hoping that they do the right thing with Travis,” Langhofer said. “Travis is a great coach and all he did was express an opinion on a really important matter. We need to be able to discuss these issues and share our opinion about these important policies that are affecting our kids.”

Blake said her fellow classmates support her speaking out and have quietly stood by her but many are afraid to voice vocal support for fear of retribution.
