Outrageous Daycare Workers Fired for Raising Concerns About Transgender Child
Two staff members at a Christian daycare say they were fired for voicing concern after being told to call a six-year-old girl by a new name and refer to her as a boy.
One of those workers, Madeline Kirksey, was a manager at Children’s Lighthouse Learning Center in Katy, Texas.
According to Kirksey, she and her staff were told a six-year-old female student was now identifying as a boy. The child's parents cut the girl's hair short, and employees were instructed to begin calling the child a boy's name.
Kirksey, however, did not feel comfortable with it. She told the center that other parents should know about it, adding that she was concerned about speaking on transgender matters to other children at the center. After that, Kirksey received a termination letter from the center.
In a cable news exclusive, Kirksey told Megyn Kelly that there was no consideration given by the daycare administrators about how this might affect the other children.
Kirksey revealed that she will be filing a lawsuit against the daycare.
Kirkey's attorney, Adam Taylor, said that this was a total outrage, and that's why they're filing a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
"What my client was trying to do was attempting to protect the dignity of all those children," Taylor said. "She was sacrificed at the altar for political correctness."
"We've got to accommodate everybody."
