Trans girl abused at school. Family looks for justice

13-year-old Lindsey Smith was punched in the face by a boy from her class who previously abused her verbally. “He punched me in the face, right here and right here”, the girl cried, My nose was bleeding. I was holding my nose. The principal told me to ignore it and try not to let it ruin my day.” The girl’s mom says that not only classmates abuse her daughter, so do teachers addressing her by the name of birth and using male pronouns. “A male student walked down the halls of the school and was yelling my nieces name and saying “she is a boy” and “she has a D*** ” and “she has to go to the Dr’s to tell them she’s a girl” and the male student walked up to her and punched her in the face 2 to 3 times! The school did not call the police nor did they suspend the male student because “the cameras couldn’t clearly see what happened” and 3 students claimed that my niece pushed the male student first,” Lindsey’s aunt wrote on Facebook. Since posting on Facebook, the administration at the middle school has put the male student on emergency expulsion and an officer has written a report and is turning the case over to the DA, prompting the aunt to stop to demand anything for her niece. The girl’s mom is also frustrated about it: “My heart started beating and I started crying. She had texted me, ‘mom, a kid punched me in the face. I think my nose is broken and it’s bleeding really bad’,” she said. “I’m always in contact with the school, but it doesn’t seem they’re taking it as seriously as they should,” she said. “I just don’t want her to suffer anymore bullying.”
