Another indoctrinator is being sued by furious parents who discovered — like so many other parents — that many teachers today are actually evangelists for the LGBT movement, bent on winning converts to their cause. This time, it is Debra Rosenquist, a fifth-grade teacher at Terryville Road Elementary School in Port Jefferson Station, a hamlet on New York’s Long Island.
According to the lawsuit filed in Suffolk County Court, the parents received a phone call from the principal in January 2022 telling them that their 9-year-old daughter — referred to as A.V. — was troubled and had sketched a drawing of a girl and written “I feel sad like a lot” and “I wanna kill myself.” According to the principal, the school psychologist had concluded that she “was confused about her gender identity.”
During the call, the principal asked the parents if their daughter could be referred to by male pronouns and the name “Leo.” The parents responded by saying that they were willing to extend permission so long as their daughter was the one explicitly requesting the name change, but that they doubted she would because “Leo” was merely a nickname one of her friends had used, referring to the girl’s astrological sign.
According to the court documents, however, the parents soon discovered that Rosenquist had not waited for permission or discussion to begins socially transitioning their daughter. As it turned out, she had begun calling the little girl “Leo” and using male pronouns at the beginning of the 2021-22 school year, and had been doing so for months without their knowledge by the time they received a phone call from the principal.
