Well, here we go! The state of Texas heads to court on Friday to defend its bid to block the Obama administrationâ€™s recent guidance that said public schools should allow transgender students to use restrooms according to their gender identity. But the Lawmakers are now getting back up because Itâ€™s not just the lawmakers who are fighting over the issue — itâ€™s the apparently some of the residents, including a 4-year-old girl and her mother in Pearland.
Excerpt From WFAA8ABC:
As soon as she could, Kai Shappley gravitated towards dresses and dolls. But even though she was born a boy named Joseph Paul, she made it clear what she identified as. â€śBy age 3, she was verbalizing, ‘Iâ€™m a girl, you know Iâ€™m a girl,’,â€ť said Kimberly Shappley, Kaiâ€™s mother. At first, it was a huge hurdle for Kimberly, a devout Christian. She admitted to a period of punishment towards Kai, until the childâ€™s behavior proved traumatic.
