Okla. Mom Sues School after Daughter ‘Severely Beaten” by Trans Student in Bathroom

'I can tell you consequences were given... '

(Headline USA) An Oklahoma mother filed a lawsuit against her local school district this week after her 15-year-old daughter reportedly was “severely beaten” by a transgender student in the girl’s bathroom.

The young girl was attacked on Oct. 26, 2022, at Edmond Memorial High School, according to the lawsuit. The transgender student, who had “made previous threats of violence” against the victim, entered the female restroom and approached the victim, who was speaking with friends, the Daily Mail reported.

After telling the transgender student that she didn’t want to talk, the transgender student became angry and asked the victim if she “wanted to fight.”

The transgender student then hit the victim in the face and continued to kick her and pull her hair as she lay on the ground. Her friends tried to intervene, but they were also struck in the face by the transgender student.

The girls said they felt powerless against the transgender student because of his strength.

Police were called to the school and reported that one girl had injuries to her “eye, face, and head with a possible concussion,” according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges that the school failed to comply with a law signed by Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt that requires students to “use restrooms that match the sex listed on their birth certificate.”

Superintendent Angela Grunewald claimed there was no birth certificate on record for the transgender student because the student had enrolled just a few days prior to the attack.

“We have a policy that our school board enacted in August of this school year that says all students must go to the bathroom of their birth gender, and both of those policies were broken,” Grunewald admitted. “I can tell you consequences were given.”

The mother is seeking $75,000 in damages for the “severe physical and mental injuries, severe physical pain and suffering, and severe emotional distress” her daughter sustained.
