The latest entry in the high school culture wars comes from New Hampshire where a freshman is suing his school because it briefly suspended him from the football team.
His offense? Saying there are “only two genders .”
This statement violated Exeter High School’s “Gender Nonconforming Students Policy,” but the student’s attorney says his client is being punished for his Catholic beliefs — a violation of both the U.S. and New Hampshire constitutions.
“[The student] in fact denied, and will continue to deny, that any person can belong to a gender other than that of ‘male’ or ‘female,’” the lawsuit states. “(The student) will never refer to any individual person using plural pronouns such as ‘they,’ using contrived pronouns such as ‘ze,’ or with any similar terminology that reflects values which (the student) does not share.”
According to the suit, the controversy started in Spanish class when the teacher asked students to introduce themselves. One student noted she “considers herself non-binary” and goes by the pronoun “they.”
Incredibly, the non-binary student and the plaintiff had no “direct interaction that day, nor since.” How the plaintiff got into hot water was a female student overheard him talking with some friends about the matter on a school bus.

And how were they discussing it? In the context of the very class in which the issue first arose:
“[T]he student filing the lawsuit spoke with two friends on the bus over the perceived difficulty of using third-person pronouns to refer to themselves in Spanish. For instance, the third-person pronoun to refer to a group of men is ‘ellos’ but when referring to a group of women it becomes ‘ellas.’”The eavesdropping girl broke in saying “There’s more than two genders,” to which the plaintiff responded “No there isn’t: There’s only two genders.”The girl (allegedly) continued the argument via text message after the bus ride, and the lawsuit contends it is these messages which were brought to the attention of school administrators.Assistant Principal Marcy Dovholuk and Athletic Director Bill Ball later confronted the plaintiff with the messages, informing him he was […]
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
