It's becoming more and more normal for kids in schools to be presented with gender theory in the classroom, even if it means there are classmates who call themselves trans.

The popular Twitter account @LibsofTikTok is run by an investigative journalist who has been uncovering some of the most unbelievable incidents in schools across America that usually involve teachers and inappropriate subject matter, such as a teacher "coming out" to their students. She recently shared a case in Wisconsin where multiple students are being charged by the school district because they used the incorrect pronouns for a classmate.

Wisconsin School District Charges Middle Schoolers with Sexual Harassment Because They Referred to Classmate with the Wrong Pronouns

Kiel, Wisconsin is a small town with only 3,600 residents, and its school district just charged three middle school students with sexual harassment per Title IX following an incident in March. Rosemary Rabidoux, a mother who has a 13-year-old son in the eighth grade at Kiel Middle School, was contacted suddenly by the school principal about the matter.

“I received a phone call from the principal…forewarning me, letting me know that I was going to be receiving an email with sexual harassment allegations against my son,” she explained to the local news. “I immediately went into shock. I’m thinking sexual harassment? That’s rape, that’s inappropriate touching, that’s incest. What has my son done?”

But it actually had nothing to do with sexual harassment. Her son Braden was being accused of using the wrong pronouns when speaking to another student. "[The investigating principal] said he’s being allegedly charged with sexual harassment for not using proper pronouns," Rabidoux said. "I thought it wasn’t real. I thought this has got to be a gag, a joke one has nothing to do with the other."

The student demanded to be called "they/them," and she was yelling at Braden's friend for not using these new pronouns. Rabidoux said her son was just sticking up for this friend who is "very soft-spoken."

"Braden finally came up, defending him, saying ‘He doesn’t have to use proper pronouns, it’s his constitutional right to not use, you can’t make him say things,'" Rabidoux explained. She also said her son is confused by the student's demand to be called by a plural pronoun when she is one person.

The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty is stepping in to defend Braden and insist that Title IX has nothing to do someone's pronouns. “Title IX sexual harassment typically covers things like rape, dating violence, quid pro quo sexual favors really egregious stuff,” the deputy counsel Luke Berg said. "There’s nothing even remotely close to that alleged in this case.”

This is the state of schools in America today. It's no wonder that Rabidoux thought the phone call from the principal was a joke. But this is the product of allowing gender theory to seep into schools across our country. This may only be the beginning of schools attempting to prosecute kids who refuse to play the game of pronouns.
