Mom Speaks Out After Son Is Suspended for Saying There Are ‘Only Two Genders’

The New Hampshire mother of a high school student-athlete suspended from playing in a football game for telling a classmate there are “only two genders” spoke out publicly for the first time Thursday.

“My first reaction was that I was shocked,” the mother, who requested anonymity, told Fox News in a statement. Her son, a football player at the school, had texted a classmate while off school grounds.

“My son had already told me about the incident, so I knew what had happened,” the mother, who lives in Rockingham County, added. “When I saw the text messages, I agreed with my son. All he did was state an opinion. I defended him on the phone to the vice principal and said, ‘He has a right to his opinion.’”

The student and his mother sued Exeter High School and Vice Principal Mary Dovholuk Nov. 4, alleging they violated the teen’s constitutional right to free speech along with the New Hampshire Bill of Rights.

The school has a written policy on “transgender and gender nonconforming students” that says they have the right to be addressed by their preferred name and pronoun, irrespective of their biological sex.
