Christian School in Virginia Drives Eight-Year-Old Tomboy Out
A Christian school in Virginia has reportedly driven out an eight-year-old girl because of her "boyish looks," saying that God had made her female, and she should dress and act as such.
A recent article by WDBJ7 reports that Campbell County youth Sunnie Kahle received a letter from the administrators at Timberlake Christian School, where she was a student, telling her that it was their right to refuse students who contradict a "biblical lifestyle."
"We believe that unless Sunnie and her family clearly understand that God has made her female and her dress and behavior need to follow suit with her God-ordained identity, that TCS is not the best place for her future education," Bowman wrote in the letter, which was given to WDBJ7 by Thompson.
Kahle’s legal guardian, great-grandmother Doris Thompson, was deeply offended by the letter, saying, "Sunnie realizes she’s a female, but she wants to do boy things. She wants to play rough and tough."
She said that Kahle has always preferred "boy hobbies" like her collection of coins, hunting knives, and autographed baseballs. But when the girl asked to have her long hair cut short several years ago, her appearance caught the attention of school administrators.
