A Catholic teenager who was reportedly suspended for saying there are only two genders is suing his New Hampshire public school district.
The lawsuit, filed in a state court Nov. 4, said that the teen’s suspension from a football game in September breached the teen’s constitutional right to free speech, as well as the New Hampshire Bill of Rights, reported The Portsmouth Herald.
The teen, identified only as M.P., is a freshman at Exeter High School, a public high school in Exeter, New Hampshire.
The lawsuit, filed in Rockingham Superior Court through an attorney with the Christian organization Cornerstone, describes M.P. as “a believing Catholic, holding to the historic Christian doctrine that God created human beings male and female.”
