Here We Go: Florida Parents Sue School District, Say Officials Colluded with Daughter to Change Her Gender Identity Behind Their Backs

The parents of a middle school student in Leon County, Florida, have filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the local school district for meeting with their daughter to discuss her chosen gender identity without their consent or notifying them about the meeting.

WCTV in Tallahassee reports the parents’ lawsuit claims the district’s LGBTQ policies illegally exclude parents from gender identity discussions about their own children.

The student’s parents, January and Jeffrey Littlejohn, argue the school officials’ actions directly violated their parental rights under the U.S. Constitution and the Florida Constitution. They point to the school district’s “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Gender Nonconforming and Questioning Support Guide” which “deliberately and intentionally directed LCS staff and personnel to disregard parental rights by NOT telling parents when their children asserted a discordant gender identity,” according to legal documents filed in the case.

According to the 63-page lawsuit, the Littlejohns’ daughter, then a 13-year-old student at Deer Lake Middle School, had been diagnosed with ADHD and had expressed confusion about her gender identity in the late spring of 2020. The parents told the school their daughter was receiving counseling and could use “J” as a nickname at school, but she would continue to be referred to by her given name and as a female.

The suit claims the Littlejohns never gave school officials permission to change their daughter’s name or pronouns. They later found out school officials had met with their daughter to discuss her restroom and overnight trip choices without informing them.
