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.
