A Christian school in Virginia sent an awful letter to the grandparents of Sunie Kahle. The letter slammed the little girl, claiming that her tomboy ways and short hair are not biblically correct. How awful.

Sunnie Kahle, 8, has been warned by her school’s administrators that if she does not behave in more gender appropriate ways, she will be banned. A letter sent to the tomboy’s grandparents, Doris and Carrol Thompson, from the school’s principal claims that her classmates are confused about Sunnie’s gender.

Sunnie Kahle Banned From School For ‘Sexually Immoral’ Haircut

The principal of Timberlake Christian School, located in Timberlake, Virginia, sent a letter to 8-year-old Sunnie Kahle‘s grandparents, saying if the little girl does not change her tomboy ways, she will be expelled from the school.

Why? Simply because the little girl likes sports, occasionally wears muddy sneakers, and has a pixie haircut. The school has taken it upon themselves to label these things as inappropriate, reports the Daily Mail.

Becky Bowman, the principal in question, wrote the letter, which said: “We believe that unless Sunnie, as well as 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.”

Sunnie’s grandparents, who are also the little girls legal guardians, were quick to defend their granddaughter.

“‘How do you label a child, eight years old, or discriminate against an eight year old child? It just don’t happen,” Sunnie’s grandfather replied.

Sunnie ‘Misses Friends’ From School

Of course, Sunnie’s grandparents are not going to allow the school to humiliate their granddaughter. Instead, they decided to take her out of the Christian School on their own accord. The change, however, has been incredibly difficult for the little girl.

“She cries every morning to get on the bus, she cries when she comes home because she wants to go back to Timberlake Christian with her friends,” said Doris, the girl’s grandmother.

Though they understand how difficult it is for Sunnie, Doris and Carrol have no intentions of re-enrolling her at Timberlake Christian.

What do you think, HollyMoms? Should the school be allowed to ban a student because she is a tomboy? Let us know your thoughts below.

This is way beyond stupid. If she’s a tomboy then be it. people don’t understand that we are all different in our owns ways some boys have long hair,some girls have short hair and hey to make it even better Jesus had long hair and he was a male of course so why should it matter?our differences are what makes us unique. And isn’t a Christian school supposed to accept you the way you are? Because I highly doubt Jesus would neglect a girl because she has short hair and likes to do boy things. No offense but I’m a Christian and I personally think some Christians are very judgemental towards others

First off, this has very little to do with hair length. This article is poorly written and biased.
Second, this is a good thing; Gender Identity Disorder shouldn’t be praised. Like depression it is very harmful, must be detected early and must be treated. The school is doing the right thing. They’re trying to give her time to think it through and quit being a tomboy so she wrong go her life being confused, unhappy, and repressed. Give it a while and hopefully she emerge a wonderful little girl with her mind in place.
I can’t believe you hate this girl enough to want her to remain confused as to who she is.

Finally! Someone enforcing morals and common decnecy! This school is definately in the right for doing this. Gender Identity Disorder shouldn’t be praised: it should be treated. Sunnie deserved what she got. She is a girl and should act like one- not discriminate against her kind and crossdress in an awful atempt to ruin the school’s integrity.

What are these “so called parents” teaching their kids, that’s its ok to exclude those that are different, discriminate. Did Christ exclude Mary Magdalene, not he did not. This tomboy should be sought out and brought accepted with all her differences and judge not by her looks, but by the content of their character. I hope the school and parents are not judge as they have judged others.

This isn’t about “discriminating those who are different”. This is about keeping those things away from our kids. Our kids shouldn’t be confused and wind up rejecting their gender- they should embrace it. And this isn’t about “her looks” nor should ” she be accepted” for being mentally distress. This is because of what’s inside. She is confused and rotton inside. The school just wants her to get her thoughts together so she could be a graceful little girl as the lord wants her to be and to be a successful, model lady to others.

This is so biased I wouldn’t even consider it a report. It’s simply an opinion

Why did they enroll her there in the first place? This is a private, Christian school with it’s own belief system. If the school did not adhere to what the grandparents believed, why did they send her there?

The school diced that because she likes sports and has a short hair cut that an eight year old little girl should be labeled, judged and banned. Who could Eve predict such a thing? Perhaps the grandparents share the Christian views of the school and, therefore, had no idea thy would act in such a very unchristian like manner. Would Jesus really judge an 8-year-old child?!? Never. Don’t ask why the grandparents enrolled her in the school in the first place. Ask why the school thinks this is in any way ok!!!

D Most likely because it is a religious school, therfore, they expected a safe, moral place for their granddaughter to be in. At least the school fulfilled its role befor the girl caused trouble and ruined the school’s integrity
