Sup Travellers?! I'm sure that most of us have at some point met some tomboys in our life. You know, girls that act and dress in ways that are socially acceptable for boys. I've met a couple in my school days and most of them didn't end up being gay. Most of them just grew up around plenty boys and just adopted some of their tendencies. I think that's completely normal but a Christian school in Virginia seems to think that it is a problem worth just as much an elementary school education.

According to Huffington Post, 8 year old Sunnie Kahle was removed from her Christian Elementary school after being told that she was not welcomed because of her tomboyish ways. The school's administrators sent the girl a letter saying that they would reject admittance to the girl unless she started dressing more feminine. Kahle wears her hair in a short cut, wears boy's sneakers and does boyish things. The school believes that the way she dresses and acts are in direct violation of biblical standards.

"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,” reads the letter from Timberlake Christian Schools.

I don't usually like to talk about religion on my blog but I'm going to make this an exception. I'm all for christian morals. Christian morals thought me not to kill or steal [among other things]. But I believe that in any situation where you bring up Christ I think you should always try to put yourself in Jesus's shoes and think about what he would have done in the same situation. Based on my little knowledge about Jesus I don't think that he would have kicked a girl out of a school for looking like a boy. Homosexuality is one thing but the school doesn't even know if she's a lesbian or not. I don't understand. I fully understand if a Christian school kicks out a gay person. Christians follow the bible and the bible says that gays are an abomination. [The bible said that, not me]. However I don't think that JUST being a tomboy is in violation of the bible. But that's just my opinion. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
