Jan 22 - Mother's sues school after 2 teachers manipulated daughter into becoming trans

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A mother who claims teachers secretly manipulated her 11-year-old daughter into changing her gender identity and name has filed a legal case against a tiny California school district.

Spreckels Union School District was responsible for “extreme and outrageous conduct” that led the student on a path toward transitioning as a boy and drove a wedge between mother and child, according to the claim filed Wednesday by a conservative legal group.

Jessica Konen said two middle school teachers who ran the school's Equality Club — later known as UBU (You Be You) — planted the seed that her daughter was bis*xual in 6th grade and then introduced the idea she was transgender.

The legal claim — a precursor to a lawsuit — follows a dustup in the district last fall after the author of a book widely criticized as “anti-transgender” quoted the two teachers speaking at a conference about how to run an LGBTQ+ club in a conservative community.

Spreckels is a speck of a town in the agricultural Salinas Valley, about 90 miles (144 kilometers) south of San Francisco. It was once home to the world's largest sugar refinery and was the setting for some scenes in the 1955 film based on John Steinbeck's “East of Eden.”

While Konen said her daughter had revealed she was bis*xual, the mother was unaware she was identifying as a boy until she was called to a meeting at the Buena Vista Middle School principal’s office in December 2019 when her daughter was in 7th grade.

She wasn’t told the purpose of the meeting until her daughter entered the room and sat across a table from her and teacher Lori Caldeira broke the news.

“I literally was caught off guard. I was blindsided,” Konen said. “I didn’t even know what to feel like because I didn’t even know where it came from.”

Konen said she began to cry.

She said her daughter was also caught by surprise. She had told teachers she wanted to notify her mom, but didn't know they set the meeting up that day.

Konen said she gave the school permission to use a boy’s name for attendance purposes and tried to be supportive, but it was difficult.

When schools went to remote learning during the pandemic in March 2020, Konen said her daughter began returning to her “old self” and now uses her given name.

But it wasn’t until this fall that Konen began to question how her daughter got on the path to a different identity after the article by Abigail Shrier circulated around town.

In a leaked recording from a California Teachers a*sociation conference, Caldeira and Kelly Baraki were quoted discussing how they kept meetings private and “stalked” students online for recruits.

“When we were doing our virtual learning — we totally stalked what they were doing on Google, when they weren’t doing school work,” Baraki said. “One of them was googling ‘Trans Day of Visibility.’ And we’re like, ‘Check.’ We’re going to invite that kid when we get back on campus.”

Neither Caldeira nor Baraki could be reached by The a*sociated Press for comment. Caldeira told the San Francisco Chronicle the quotes were accurate but taken out of context or misrepresented. The stalking comment was a joke, she said.

Caldeira, who has been awarded as a role model for inclusion, defended their work, saying students set the agenda and the teachers were there to provide honest and fair answers to their questions.

The teachers were placed on administrative leave in November. They had attended the conference on their own time, but the district said, “many of the comments and themes stated in the article are alarming, concerning, disappointing” and didn't reflect their policies.

The district hired a law firm to investigate, which is ongoing, and the UBU club was suspended.

Konen was applauded when she blasted school board members at a meeting in December, saying the teachers took away her ability to parent.

Superintendent Eric Tarallo said the legal claim would be addressed in the judicial system and personnel policies prevented him from revealing if the teachers were back at school. He said the district was reviewing and updating policies on student clubs.

The California Teachers a*sociation said the conference was one of dozens each year that, in part, help educators understand the need to protect students from discrimination, including s*xual orientation and gender identity or expression.

It criticized the group bringing the lawsuit, which it noted is using the case to raise money for its cause.

“We are concerned about a political climate right now in which outside political forces fuel chaos and misinformation and seek to divide parents, educators and school communities for their own political gain, which is evident in this complaint," spokeswoman Lisa Gardiner said. “The Center for American Liberty is concerned with pushing its own political agenda through litigation and has filed multiple lawsuits against various school districts and communities.”

One of Konen’s chief complaints was that she was kept in the dark by the school about her daughter’s participation in the club, literature teachers provided, and a “gender support plan” created by administrators. She said her daughter was even told how to make a binder to keep her brea*ts from developing.

“Parents are supposed to have access to all the educational records of their children,” said attorney Harmeet Dhillon, who filed the case. “The concept that the schools have a right to be running secret, don’t-tell-your-parents clubs and don’t-tell-your-parents programs and actively coaching children how to mutilate themselves, which is you know, not growing your brea*ts, is certainly not consistent with California law."

Under state and federal law, however, students have privacy rights that extend to s*xual orientation and gender identity, according to the American Civil Liberties Union. Only in limited circumstances can a school notify a parent of their child’s s*xual identity against their wishes.

“Outside of school, these students may similarly face potential hostility at home because of who they are,” said attorney Peter Renn of Lambda Legal. “For example, involuntarily outing a student as LGBTQ to their parents can very well lead to them getting kicked out of the home in some circumstances.”

Konen said her daughter is now doing well in high school.

“She still deals with confusion,” Konen said. “She feels like she can breathe, you know, like she doesn't have pressure on her.”

But yall go on and keep voting for these liberal politicians, who then hire their liberal friends to run the schools, who then allow teachers like this around your kids...

So "libs" are the problem, but the conservative mother acknowledged her 11 YEAR OLD daughter identified as bis*xual?

Sounds like the mom was in denial the whole time and now she needs a scapegoat for being out of touch with her daughter. If teachers are more of an influence on your children than you are, sounds like a you problem.


And for the record, the teachers are overstepping their bounds here.

There's been an epidemic of parents trying to blame everyone but themself for their kids doing fu*ked up sh*t. Also a female with genuine accountability is a myth.

Kid shoots up school: "parents should've raised them better "

Daughter ends up on onlyfans: "Fathers wasn't in her life. Should've raised her better "

Kid turns out to be gay: "Someone brainwashed her. I can only do so much as a parent.
"

One of the worst things for many parents is for their kid to be gay so they are almost literally such a state of shock, that they try putting it put of their mind until it's right there in their face as the kid grows more into their s*xuality. For most gay people, you hear the story of their relatives knowing they were "different" at like age 4. But the mom got blindsided by her preteen daughter

Denial is a motherfu*ker for these parents.

This sh*t has nothing to do with political ideology. This fu*king town is only like 6 blocks wide in the middle of nowhere California. These folks were weirdos in general. They probably all related to each other in some kind of way.

They may be pretty much devil worshipers but conservatives are actually devil worshiping pedophiles 100% sure of it. Do you ever even notice that all of the insanity in America comes from Christians liberal or conservative they all believe in Jesus.
