Remember the fight over an SSA club at Pigsah High School in North Carolina, where the school initially refused to allow it to form and then gave in when threatened with a lawsuit? Abusive Christians bullies have now managed to do what the school could not, prevent the creation of the group. Kalei Wilson, the student who tried to get it started, wrote on the fundraising page for the group a few days ago:
I’m nervous about the first meeting this week. This morning I brought some flyers to hang up at school but I don’t think they will remain on the walls long.
We have permission to post them but if the people who continue to message me with horrible stuff sees them, I bet they tear them down.
This morning I was called “Satan” by one Christian girl who first called me a “dumb c&^t b*&^h!”
I know what I’m doing is right but it’s scary. Hopefully the students who have said they will come will actually show up.
Thank you for the kind words and support. We just received a big package from the SSA with pens and stickers and goodies to give out.
But the intimidation continued and this was posted the next day:
It saddens us to report that due to the numerous threats and the verbal attacks on Kalei along with the vindictive which-hunt to hurt the reputations of affiliated local groups and our own family , Kalei will not be continuing with the group.
We have contacted GoFundMe and requested they return your generous donations. They have assured us that your funds will show back up in your respective accounts within 3 to 5 days.
Your love and support are priceless and we apologize in letting you down. It was our single goal to support Kalei in her efforts to start the much needed SSA club.
However, we never expected our family and friends to be sought out and demonized. Please know that we recognize the importance of the club but we can not justify our involvement with the risk of our families safety and well being.
I’m certainly not going to criticize Kalei or her family for their decision. Imagine being a 15 year old girl in North Carolina with a school full of people harassing and bullying you when you’ve done absolutely nothing to them whatsoever. Unfortunately, this is exactly what we’ve come to expect in such situations. It’s the same thing Jessica Ahlquist went through, the same thing the Bell family went through, the same thing most people go through when they challenge Christian privilege.
