School Closes After Parents Obscenely Threaten Transgender 12-Year-Old Via Facebook

Yesterday morning, parents responded to the threats against the seventh grader—who is pseudonymously identified as “Maddie”—by staging a small silent rally in support of the girl outside of the school. In response, law enforcement officials reportedly asked the school to shut down for the day out of fear of a counter protest.

Maddie has publicly identified as a girl for the past two years. Previously, she used a staff bathroom “to avoid being harassed,” as Think Progress reports. After the school was recently renovated, though, she had a difficult time finding the staff bathroom. On one single occasion, according to Maddie’s mother, she used the girls’ restroom.
