Story update: Transgender student recants sexual assault report

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Police say a transgender teen who said he was beaten and sexually assaulted in a California high school bathroom has recanted the story.

Hercules police spokeswoman Detective Connie Van Putten says detectives interviewed the student Tuesday and determined nothing had happened to him.

On Monday, the 15-year-old student reported he was attacked by three boys in a bathroom at a suburban San Francisco public school.

The teen, who is biologically female but identifies as male, had told officers he was leaving a boy's bathroom late Monday morning at Hercules Middle/High School when the assailants pushed him inside a large stall and attacked him.

2. UGH. So frustrating to hear these types of stories.

to be accepted, straight kids just need to walk up Mt. Diablo, but transgender kids up the Sierra Nevada.

although the anti-transgender types in CA have lost ammo to claim that the new CA transgender students' rights law will cause more rapes in school bathrooms, this stupid student has screwn over a lot of his fellow transgender youth as well as rape victims! so frustrating.

3. Why do this kind of thing?

It just makes it tougher on those who are molested.

5. Maybe.



It ticks me off. Not only does it make it harder for actual victims, but taken too far it can ruin innocent people's lives.
