Here's another story of a female vice-principal strip-searching a boy. This one was ten. And it was over a "stolen" $20 bill that was later found in the cafeteria.
He'd dived under a table to retrieve money that a classmate had dropped, and returned it to her. Then he was accused of stealing the $20 bill. The vice principal didn't believe the kid that he didn't have it, despite forcing him to turn all his pockets inside out and show that he didn't. So, what's next? Believe him and look elsewhere? No, not for a bureaucrat. That makes sense. Strip the kid and search him? Brilliant!
Except...the kid really was telling the truth. He didn't have the twenty.
Honestly, I wonder what the girl was doing carrying that much cash in the first place. Was she the local drug provider to the elementary/middle school?
Oh, wait...girls don't do stuff like that.
I have a son. A brilliant, loud, energetic, funny, protective, chivalrous boy. I will not permit society to vilify him for not having the characteristics of a girl. Nor will I permit society to mock my daughter for being, and enjoying being, a girl who has very few boy characteristics.
My children are almost stereotypes of their gender. They're happy. They're healthy. And they will be home schooled so that that doesn't change because someone thinks they should both be more androgynous.
