A bomb threat closed all schools in a Wisconsin school district Monday, days after three middle schoolers found themselves under investigation for refusing to address their non-binary classmate by their preferred pronouns.

Kiel Middle School received the threat during school hours, at roughly 12:45 pm, shortly after police announced they were working to investigate ‘threatening communications’ toward district staff regarding the sexual harassment probe.

The article goes on to state the following:

The students, all aged 13 and all enrolled at Kiel Middle, were all hit with a formal complaint earlier this month, for referring to the unnamed student as ‘she’ or ‘her,’ rather than ‘they’ or ‘them.’


The incident has garnered national news coverage, thrusting the small Kiel Area School District into the spotlight and a national debate.

WBAY describes the incident:

In April, the parents of the three boys were notified their sons were being charged by school district officials with sexual harassment. A section of Title IX prohibits gender-based harassment in the form of name-calling on the basis of sex.

The district claims the boys were not referring to a student’s requested pronouns of “they” and “them.”

Through a letter from their attorney, the parents are asking for the charges to be dropped immediately, saying they have no standing legally.

“It’s not sexual harassment under Title IX, under their own policy, under federal law, and it’s probably a First Amendment violation. Almost certainly, if that’s their theory, that solely using the wrong pronoun, that that would be a First Amendment violation,” Luke Berg with the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty said.

There has been public outcry over the incident, and the Daily Mail notes: “Directly before Monday’s threat, which saw all three schools evacuated, City of Kiel Police Chief Dave Funkhouser revealed the district had been receiving a stream of ‘extremely vulgar, hateful, and disturbing’ threats since the case went public.”

“I just wish everyone would calm down and start taking so we can try and resolve these issues peacefully and the anger and hatred that’s being spread on this issue is really disheartening,” Funkhouser said.

In response to police concerns over the safety of a school board meeting scheduled for Monday, the board opted to change a live meeting to a virtual platform and move the date of that meeting.

The board announced:

“On behalf of the Kiel Area School District Board of Education, in light of recent attention brought to the school district and the volatility of the situation, law enforcement is concerned for the safety of all involved, including staff, citizens and board members, and have recommended to the KASD Board of Education to cancel/postpone the board meeting that was scheduled for Monday, May 23, 2022. The board met today and decided to move the meeting to Wednesday, May 25, 2022 at 4 pm. This will be a virtual only meeting. There will not be an onsite meeting that day.

“Information about board meetings, including a feedback form can be found on the School Board Webpage.

”Thank you for the continued support of our school.”

Funkhouser says the delay may give parties time to “cool off” and “hopefully allow for logical, rational, and meaningful dialogue to occur.”

  1. This insanity going to end. If you are born with penis you’re a boy and him and if you’re born with a vagina you’re a girl in her. Stop trying to manipulate science into you are evil thoughts.

    When is This insanity going to end. If you are born with penis you’re a boy and him and if you’re born with a vagina you’re a girl in her. Stop trying to manipulate science into you are evil thoughts.

  2. Fuk the school board and all their libtard policies! Don’t give a shit what the kid identified as! Call the kid by name! When did u ever identify another student by their sexuality rather be Han their names!! I’d take the entire administration to court

  3. Sick deranged people. This ignorance has to stop, why are the few dictating this bull💩 to the masses? Pathetic ignorant trolls

  4. WTF!?! Whatever happened to “Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me” I learned that in grade school.

  5. It’s starting to make sense-not really, the left wing attention seekers can’t figure out which sex they are because they think this is sexual harassment. Is this where we are as a Country/uncivilized Nation? A 13 year old sees the chance to be famous for 15 seconds and throws the 2021/2022 race card. Lions, Tigers and Bears Oh MY.

  6. This nonsense has to stop! And by the way,, they, them is a reference to PLURAL, that is more than one , NOT gender!
    This shouldn’t be an issue in a place of learning and especially 13 year olds! Stop trying to indoctrinate our kids!!! Effing queers keep to yourselves and mind your own business!!

  7. Every cop and all of the schools administrators should be immediately fired. The cops for not honoring their oath to uphold our constitution, the supreme law of our country, and the teachers for being too stupid for not knowing what a male or a female is. The special kid needs professional help too.

  8. This country has lost its ever loving mind. We are spiraling quick. I don’t know who can or how to save it. I’m ready for a #NationalDivorce.

  9. Welcome to the Democrats 2022 summer of mostly peaceful protests (riots, burning, bombings, looting and murder) and love. Just like 2020. It’s time to say No Damn Way.

  10. It’s grammatically incorrect to call someone “they”! How can you teach grammar in this crazy world? Seriously, “they” is a plural pronoun. The student is one body, one person. He/she is singular. His/her pronoun cannot be “they”. Just stop this nonsense.

  11. I have a solution. Anyone who doesn’t want to be addressed as she or he can go by IT. Then let’s just call them she-he-it. Or shit for short. 💩🤣.

  12. This is unbelievable!!! When I was in school there were girls and boys. Girls used girl bathroom and boys used boy’s bathroom. Teachers taught reading, writing and arithmetic. Science and geography. You had different groups that you chose to hang with: popular kids, regular kids, nerds (smart kids), pot heads and the kids with color hair that wore black clothes and black lip stick. There wasn’t anything mentioned about gay, homosexuality or transgender. If you were gay who cared. But it wasn’t a topic spoken about because they chose to keep it quite. But today the idiots of the left decided they’d cause strife among everyone on any and every issue to divide this country. Whether it’s a gay, homosexual, transgender, race or abortion issue they’ve decided to push every issue down everyone’s throat. Not everyone has to agree on every issue they throw at us. Be who you want. Think how you want. Do what you want but you don’t have the right to make us be who you are. It doesn’t make you right or us wrong or Vice-versa. Don’t agree with bullying but this is ridiculous to charge kids for this reason. What happened to suspension? These school boards are the problem. It’s time to take our schools back from these idiots allowing this to happen. Schools are for learning and not for political stupidity. When your at school you are a girl or a boy. You chose but you cannot push your views on others. Drop these charges and leave these kids alone. This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard.

  13. Unbelievable!!! You can’t post your opinions on this? Wasted my time trying just now for it to be deleted? I’m tired of censorship. I see worse post here then what I just posted. Sick of this BS!!!

    • You aren’t alone my friend. I get censored a lot and I’m sure lots of other people too.Getting like twitter or Facebook
