Posted on 03/21/2013 5:49:01 PM PDT by WXRGina
The Southern Poverty Law Center claims that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students have been harassed by students and faculty members within the Moss Point School District.
The allegations came out Thursday at a press conference at Magnolia Junior High School. The SPLC also revealed information from an investigation of harassment of students in the Moss Point School District.
The group sent a letter to the district demanding immediate action in ending anti-gay bullying, according to a press release. If they do not take action, the SPLC said they will file a federal lawsuit.
The investigation comes as a result of complaints from former student Destin Holmes. Holmes identifies as a lesbian and claims she was often referred to as "he" and "it" by faculty, and was denied access to the girls' restroom.
Holmes left the school district in March 2012 and is now homeschooled.
Check back with SunHerald.com for more details on this story as the press conference ends.

Is Rachel Maddow the mother?
Actions have consequences. you choose poorly dear.
That’s a girl?
“Holmes identifies as a lesbian and claims she was often referred to as “he” and “it” by faculty, and was denied access to the girls’ restroom.”
If her claims are accurate, the SPLC will win the case.
Bunch of sissies.
Was anyone forced to wear a white armband?
Destin is a male name.
The SPLC needs to devise a list of ungendered, transgendered and nonspecies names. That should keep the loons busy for a while.
The SPLC fits their own definition of a ‘hate group’. Has anyone implicated them in the DC Family Research Council shooting yet?
SPLC is even more reprehensible than the ACLU, if that is possible. What they did to the Family Research Council was despicable. They almost got a lot of people killed by inciting that left wing whacko to attack.
hoooooo.. Look up the word “guilty” and there is the picture.
“Actions have consequences. you choose poorly dear.”
A choosing to go into the girls’ restroom is not a bad choice on her part. If the school actually denied her access to the girls’ restroom, they are the ones who made a poor choice.
Well, I don't think it is. Both are bottom feeders, and the bottom is the bottom.
Actions have consequences. you choose poorly dear.
A girl choosing to go into the girls restroom is not a bad choice on her part. If the school actually denied her access to the girls restroom, they are the ones who made a poor choice.
My cousin taught for the Moss Point schools prior to Katrina while she and my Aunt lived with my mom. Moss Point is just as liberal as any other school district, from what I saw.
No, a 16 YO male or female going around baiting people with the gay agenda is a poor choice. If she wants to pretend she’s a guy and her appearance/clothing/sexual preference shows she does) then she does not belong in a female restroom until she damn well acts like one.
I disagree. ACLU is consistent even on occasion to take our side.
I didn’t know Moss point HS had any white students left.
That’s right, 2ndDivisionVet. There are A LOT of Democrats in Moss Point.
I had a sissyfied frog in the pond behind the house taking some flak from the bulls. The butch/lesbian frogs straightened that matter out ASAP.
This gender war is just hell ain't it.
When the rule of "if it feels good, do it" is in effect, there is no right and wrong. So just stick your wee-wee anywhere you like and keep the SPLC on speed dial.
I tried to load my AR-15 with my wee-wee. Don't recommend it. It didn't feel good at all (those sharp-edged picatinny rails are insensitive to human flesh)...it must not be right.
And please don't tell me I need to add a /sarc.;-)
Is this Destin male or female? (Tough to tell from the picture - - looks like ‘The Beave’ to me). Depends on what it is. If it’s a born female who merely claims to be a sexual pervert, then she should be allowed in the girls room, monitored by a faculty member if the normal girls insist.
If Destin’s claim is true, the school district will lose in court.
Government officials cannot force a student to retain human waste.
Exactly. There are a ton of "Democrats" in Moss Point. I guess with the militant homosexual movement, SOME Democrats are more equal than others, because in this case, we wonder who was doing the "bullying"? Surely not blacks! /s Hmmmm...
It’s an Amish district
True. But sometimes points must be made. And when it costs taxpayers for the suit, they can either pay it and silently stew or man up and elect people that refuse to cater to the homosexuals.
PS, schools have been making kids retain human waste every day since 1 room schoolhouses on the prairie.
Yeah, I especially like the way they stand up for the 2nd Amendment.
Confucius say, If you act like a freak in high school... well kids can be cruel.
See: Glaspy v. Malicoat
Yes, it deals with government officials denying a person the right to use a public restroom.
The school district is going to lose.
That must be it! But, probably by a surrogate, IVF thingie.
Sixteen isn’t old enough to really know about sexuality yet, unless she is being pushed into it by someone. That wouldn’t surprise me a bit. Groups like this are always on the lookout for issues to exploit.
I’m not siding with anyone, but simply making an assessment of how a court would likely rule in this matter.
And that assessment is based on the assumption that the plaintiff was denied use of the girls’ restroom.
I agreed they would. That’s not my point.
first this mother should be pulling this kid aside and make him understand that like sex wiht feces, having turds dripping on th eend is not healthy
Now as for the bigoted SPLC, who got away from getting nuts worked up to shoot people.
Why is this place still going, why are they still allowed to operate?
It;s a hate group pure nad simple and if people don;t want or think homosexuals are normal then so be it.
what ever the courts say I;m sure you can agree as a conservative that this woman failed as a nother and for her to be out there not telling her child what is right and healthy is sickening.
SPLC, is a hate group ans seeing as you like courts and the law then are they being charged for inciting nuts to kill?
the mother is a nut and to think this is MS.
Another reason why the nuts up in the north east and parts of the west coast should join Canada and make these perverts and failed mnothers move up there
Yes, I agree that someone needs to have the ‘nads to bring the SPLC up on RICO charges.
Yes, someone has to have the beibers to stune their nads.
Same thing happened to me actually.
I teach, and we have a “gender-questioning” female that demands everyone call her a male name. I refused, and she demanded I be fired for “bullying” her by calling her by her given name.
The administration had to explain to this confused young one that nothing would happen to me or my job because all I did was CALL HER BY HER GIVEN NAME.
why didn;t the family research sue them like the SPLC likes to do?
Should put these bigots and anti American, anti southern, anti Christian bigots out once and for all
Well, when it comes to homos wanting attention, the thing is probably a liar (like most of them in cases like this) and you are dead wrong. We’ll see..............
It sounds like you’re in the belly of the beast, Struggle.
I’m not, but the whole “MY RIGHTS MY RIGHTS MY RIGHTS” bullcrap has gotten so stupid that kids think that they can simply say something and admin/teachers must follow.
Not only do I not give a flying f*** about my students’ opinions, but if they don’t learn what I expect them to learn, I’ll fail them too!
I cannot imagine how hard it must be for a real teacher in the severely messed-up, commie public schools today.
No, the father.
I agree, but I always defer to the opinion of TheOldLady.
TOL, what say you?
If she is not telling the truth her dishonesty will be exposed in court.
If she is telling the truth, the law will be on her side as I think we can all agree that we do not want government officials forcing citizens to retail human waste.
And she will have previous court decisions on the very same issue on her side.
“what ever the courts say I;m sure you can agree as a conservative that this woman failed as a nother and for her to be out there not telling her child what is right and healthy is sickening.
SPLC, is a hate group ans seeing as you like courts and the law then are they being charged for inciting nuts to kill?”
We cannot and should not adjudicate poor parenting since we do not need government officials and courts dictating to parents how to raise their children.
