New Jersey Boy Returns to Middle School as Girl

During the summer, Brian Pepe and his mother decided that because Brian was diagnosed with mental illnesses that he should show up at Thorne Middle School as a girl named Rachel.  The Middletown (New Jersey) School District initially declined to accept Brian in female attire and makeup, but under public pressure, later agreed that the administration and faculty should undergo Gay Agenda indoctrination (a.k.a. "sensitivity training").
“This is just recently I realized I wanted to be a girl.”

Angela Peters, mother to young Rachel, says the Middletown School District recently informed her that because Rachel's birth certificate lists her name as Brian, it would not be able to identify the student as a female or use her post-transition name. Additionally, the school district reportedly has refused a request for the teen to use a private nurse's bathroom away from the school's public restrooms.

It is, however, illegal in New Jersey to discriminate against a person based upon their gender—an aspect that, coupled with the attention the incident is garnering, has Superintendent William O. George promising to look back into Pepe's case.

“He was going to school last year as Brian,” said Angela Peters, Rachel’s mother, adding that her child developed stress-related seizures, depression and panic attacks. “How can I send her back as Rachel? And I am not sending her back as Brian because the depression will start again.”

Rachel’s mother admits she struggles sometimes with knowing what is the right thing to do. While Rachel is young, there will be little talk of hormone shots or surgery. But that is her child’s future, if she wants it.

“We as a district want to do everything we can as a district,” [Supt.] George said. “Every child is different and their education and social and emotional well being is my priority. We will work with them to find the appropriate placement.”

“I support this without interviewing this child. It certainly is reasonable. Children with psycho-sexual issues often benefit from a fresh start at a new school,” he said.

From "State, federal law protects gender identity" by Carol Gorga Williams, Asbury Park Press 8/19/14

According to the American Civil Liberties Union, New Jersey is among more than a dozen states where schools have been protecting transgender students such as Middletown resident Rachel Pepe from harassment or discrimination.

The others are California, Colorado, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Vermont, Washington, and the District of Columbia.

While some states have laws that refer to education specifically, others like New Jersey’s classify public schools as public accommodations where gender identity discrimination is illegal. The Garden State also has ruled that gender identity discrimination laws cover some or all nonsectarian private schools. New Jersey’s bullying provisions also provide some protections.

. . . According to Garden State Equality, [Supt.] George said Middletown Township Public Schools staff would undergo lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender sensitivity training.

In April, [President Obama's] U.S. Department of Education clarified that Title IX, the federal legislation that prohibits sex discrimination, extends to transgender students.

"Indeed, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth report high rates of sexual harassment and sexual violence. A school should investigate and resolve allegations of sexual violence regarding LGBT students using the same procedures and standards that it uses in all complaints involving sexual violence," the Education Department's guidelines said.

They continue: "The fact that incidents of sexual violence may be accompanied by anti-gay comments or be partly based on a student's actual or perceived sexual orientation does not relieve a school of its obligation under Title IX to investigate and remedy those instances of sexual violence."
