A mother and her transgender son in Indiana are suing the child's school because it refuses to recognize the child's preferred gender.
The seventh grader at John R. Wooden Middle School in Martinsville, Indiana, is allegedly the victim of mistreatment because the student, a biological female who identifies as male, is not allowed to use the boys' restroom or play on the boys' soccer team, according to the suit.
The student is represented by the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana, according to a report.

The seventh grader claims to have been "misgendered," according to the lawsuit.
The school is "unfairly denying a transgender student access to the boys' bathroom, not letting him participate in boys' sports and refusing to call him by male pronouns," the lawsuit reads. "He feels that he is being singled out and that he is not accepted for who he is."
Indiana courts have ruled in favor of transgender students in recent cases, according to the report.
"This seems to be an area where the law is crystal clear but schools are refusing to follow the law," said Kenneth Falk, legal director of the ACLU of Indiana.

The student's lawsuit was filed in federal court, and the student's legal team argue that Title IX guards its client against discrimination based on sex, according to the suit.
