A transgender student in Colorado is under attack simply for being herself.
When a small group of parents objected to the student using the girls’ bathroom at school, her school supported her. But the anti-LGBT Pacific Justice Institute stepped in and made up a story that she was harassing girls in the bathroom. Conservative media like Fox News then spread the lies.
According to the school district and fellow students, the accusations are completely false, yet the girl has had to live with the harassment the stories have generated. She has even received death threats simply because she wants to be able to be herself and be safe in school.
