An entire school district has been closed after parents threatened a transgender girl with castration and a beating only because the 12-year-old Maddie wanted to use girl’s bathroom. The horrific messages, which referred to 12-year-old Maddie as “it,” “this thing,” “half baked maggot” were posted on Facebook by parents (!) of some of her classmates. The parents believed that having such a classmate would cause troubles to the kids. The two schools in Achille, Oklahoma, will be closed as Maddie used a female bathroom once. She usually uses the staff bathroom. This sparked a wave of hatred against Maddie, who has identified as a girl since fifth grade, with Eddie Belcher threatened to ‘make him [sic] female if he [sic]wants” using a sharp knife and threatened to teach their kids to bully her until she decides to leave. “That’s a threat against her life – that’s scary,” says the girl’s mother, “She’s an awesome kid. To see any fear in her – I can’t explain how bad that hurts me.” Achille ISD Superintendent Rick Beene said the group does not consist of actual parents of the pupils (at least not only of them) and is not officially connected to the school district.
