RIVERSIDE, CA, March 12, 2013 (LifeSiteNews) A 24-year-old man who has been living as a woman has sued California Baptist University for $500,000 in damages after the school expelled him for lying on his application paperwork.
Domaine Javier applied to Cal Baptists nursing program in 2011 as a transfer from Riverside City College. When asked to check a box indicating whether he was male or female on the schools admission application, he marked female despite the fact that he is biologically male and only dresses as a woman.
I didnt do anything wrong, Javier told The Press-Enterprise during an interview in 2011. They said, On your application form you put female. And I was like, Yeah, thats how I see myself.
Cal Baptist discovered Javiers deception after he appeared on an episode of MTVs True Life reality show, where he revealed that he was only pretending to be female. The episode in question was called Im Passing as Someone Im Not.
On the show, Javier said, I am a girl trapped in a guy's body. The show showed Javier going on a date with a man who was unaware of his secret. When Javier confessed to the man that he was really male, the man ended the relationship.
Javiers lawsuit alleges that his expulsion from Cal Baptist cost him a half-million dollars in scholarships and future wages. Before his expulsion, Javier had been granted a $3,500 academic scholarship and a $2,000 music scholarship to study at the school. Since he was expelled, he has been working at a fast food restaurant, but plans to return to Riverside City College for nursing instruction in the fall.
The lawsuit hinges on a California state law barring discrimination based on gender identity. The law as written does not apply to private religious schools, but the lawsuit argues that because Cal Baptist is open to people outside the Baptist faith and offers degrees in non-theological fields, it should have to follow the same laws as secular public schools.
Were not talking about a private seminary or Bible college, said attorney Paul Southwick. Just because Cal Baptist is a religiously affiliated institution doesnt give it a right to discriminate.
Let DNA be the final judge.
Wow! That'll stand up in court!!!
I doubt whether even the Ninth Circus will agree with this.
Makes me wonder how many chimpanzees trapped in human bodies are out there walking around among us.
Schlong? Yes or No.
I'm really tempted to elaborate on that....
Just being silly: If I go around dressed like Jabba the Hutt—does that make me a Hutterite?
If Obama had a son...
I think he’s got them - and is making a GREAT POINT at the same time.
What great point?
“What great point?”
That gender preferences CANNOT WORK if everyone gets to choose what gender they are.
I think of myself as an Indian...I think I’ll put that on my school applications........oh wait, that’s already been done......sigh
