Christian couple sue Church School over transgender issue

Lawyers for the couple will argue that the school is discriminating against them by implying that their Christian faith makes them transphobic.

This is James O'Brien's must-watch response to a Christian family who are preparing to sue their children's Church of England primary school because it allowed a boy to wear a dress.

Mrs Rowe told the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme that when they spoke with the school, which is not being identified, they were told "if a child wants to do that then we just have to accept it".

"Like any other state school, our schools comply with the legal requirements of the Equalities Act 2010", a spokesperson for the Diocese of Portsmouth said.

'Church of England schools are inclusive environments where pupils learn to respect diversity of all kinds.

The presenter asked whether there was anything other than the clothes that anxious them or their son. "It's a massive thing for a six year old, they need support, love and compassion and it should be dealt with in a private sphere first and not in a school where it affects many people".

The parents explained that two years ago a boy in their eldest child's class decided he wanted to become a girl, and the school treated him as such. "We just feel that a lot of people haven't voiced our opinion because they're just pointed out as being trans-phobic or hateful".

"We have a social understanding that we have boys and we have girls", Nigel said. A six-year-old is not really able to, does not have the mental capacity to work out those kind of things.

Suu Kyi has echoed the military's line for the most part, and has said she does not consider the Rohingya to be Myanmar citizens. While the world has focused on Bangladesh, a serious humanitarian crisis is also unfolding on the Myanmar side, aid workers say.

Nigel Rowe slammed any suggestions that the couple is being transphobic, however, and said that his son should not be "stigmatized as a bully" for believing that a boy born as a male is actually a boy. But we also believe in the goodness of God's created pattern of male and female.

The Christian Legal Center, which is supporting the Rowe family, said the couple were being accused of "transphobic behavior" due to their "refusal to acknowledge a transgender person's true gender", according to the Daily Mail. "We think that somebody has to speak out before it gets out of control", he added.

During an interview on itv's This Morning Sally said one of the reasons young children should not be encouraged to dress as the opposite gender is because the vast majority of kids eventually lose that desire.

The parents insisted that the school's failure to intervene showed a lack of respect for what could turn into serious long-term ramifications for both the transitioning students and those confused by the changes expressed by their fellow peers.
