RIVERSIDE, Calif. (BP) -- California Baptist University is engaged in a legal battle against a transgender former student who is charging expulsion because of discrimination based on gender identity.
Former nursing student Domaine Javier, a male who identifies as female, charges he was kicked out of the Baptist school because he revealed on an episode of MTV'S "True Life" reality show, that he is biologically male, the Press-Enterprise reported. The school counters Javier was expelled for falsely claiming on his application that he is female.
A lawsuit Javier filed after the August 2011 expulsion has survived the university's attempt to have the case dismissed. The university says that as a private, religious institution, it is not bound by a state law barring discrimination based on gender identity.
Judge Matthew C. Perantoni ruled May 7 that the case can move forward, opting to rule on the civil-rights claim at a later hearing, the Press-Enterprise reported.
Javier had received a $3,500 scholarship to the school that is three blocks from his Riverside home, but is now attending Riverside City College. The student reportedly immigrated to California from the Philippines eight years ago.
U.S. News and World Report ranked Cal Baptist among the top regional universities in 2013. The school boasts on its website that it has more than 6,000 students and a 100 percent Christian faculty and staff offering 150 undergraduate and 33 graduate majors and concentrations.
Transgender refers to people who claim a gender identity different from their biological sex.
“discrimination based on gender identity.”
I identify with being a Klingon warrior. Does that mean my employer has to start serving blood wine and G’agh in the cafeteria now?
Hey guys. All u gotta do is put on a dress and lipstick. Get fired or expelled (or raped). And you can sue for mucha dinera!! No work required. Even better (slightly) than obammy’s freeloading deal.
Yet another Christian school under attack for bogus reasons? If the school hung a sign outside that stated “perverts need not apply” or “Bible believing Christians only”, would this help prevent such events? Doubt it.
So, what should a school such as this do to prevent such lawsuits? Vetting every student is not an option ... so what do they do?
As sick as i think homosexuals are, i think transgenders are absolute lunatics. It’s bizzare that they would be included in that grouping.
Being skewed in your attraction is one kind of disturbed, but i can at least understand why an effeminate male or a square jaw should be free to drive a car, own property, or go to the movies.
But so called transgenders should be in an insane asylum in my opinion. I think there is even an actual psychological disorder where people want body parts amputated. If this aint it, what in hell is??
Our boss already serves just that menu, along with “mystery meat” of course.
Doomonyou enjoyed son of Doomonyou’s graduation at Cal Baptist last Saturday at the campus. Son of Doomonyou starts Grad school in the fall.
