An investigation has been launched into three Kiel Middle School students.

A Title IX complaint against the students has been filed by the school district, accusing them of sexual harassment for using incorrect pronouns when addressing another student.

One of the parents of the students being accused, Rosemary Rabidoux said that she received a phone call from the principal and was shocked after hearing about the accusations.

“I received a phone call from the principal over at the elementary school, forewarning me; letting me know that I was going to be receiving an email with sexual harassment allegations against my son. I immediately went into shock. I’m thinking, sexual harassment? That’s rape, that’s inappropriate touching, that’s incest. What has my son done?”

Braden, Rabidoux’s 13-year-old son, is one of the three eighth-grade Kiel Middle School students accused of sexual harassment, something she disputes.

“(The investigating principal) said he’s being allegedly charged with sexual harassment for not using proper pronouns” Rabidoux continued. “I thought it wasn’t real. I thought this has got to be a gag, a joke, one has nothing to do with the other,” as reported.

In March, one of the students’ peers announced the pronouns they’d prefer to be addressed as ‘they/them,’ according to the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty, now defending the accused students.

“She had been screaming at one of Braden’s friends to use proper pronouns, calling him profanity, and this friend is very soft-spoken, and kind of just sunk down into his chair. Braden finally came up, defending him, saying ‘He doesn’t have to use proper pronouns, it’s his constitutional right to not use, you can’t make him say things,’” Rabidoux explained.

This could show, some say, that Rabidoux and her son are against the LGBTQ+ community.

“Not at all. Not at all! My children have been raised to love everybody equally,” Rabidoux denied.

Rabidoux reached out to WILL, shortly after finding out her son was being investigated.

“Title IX sexual harassment typically covers things like rape, dating violence, quid pro quo sexual favors; really egregious stuff. There’s nothing even remotely close to that alleged in this case,” said WILL deputy counsel Luke Berg.

The misuse of pronouns is not a part of the school district’s policy or Title IX, WILL says.

“The charge against students for sexual harassment is an extreme abuse of the Title IX process. It’s totally inappropriate and is totally being mishandled by the school district,” Berg added.

A letter to administrators at the Kiel School District was issued by WILL, to drop the Title IX complaint and investigation against three eighth-grade boys.

While the Kiel School District stated that “the KASD prohibits all forms of bullying and harassment in accordance with all laws, including Title IX.”
