[...]The teen, who is biologically female but identifies as male, had told officers he was leaving a boy’s bathroom Monday morning when three other boys pushed him inside a large stall and attacked him.
A woman declares herself a man and uses the men’s room. One would expect a higher risk, then if she (ahem, he) would use the lady’s rest room.
Officers took his statement and opened an investigation that included a sexual assault examination. But officers could not substantiate the facts of the statement, and the boy lacked any physical injuries to his head, face and hands, police said.
The student finally admitted he had made up the story, Van Putten said. She would not speculate on why he had lied.
All this, of course, is even more confusing "he" were to allege to have been vaginally raped. PC gender politics are confusing
The change left open the possibility that the teen could be charged with making a false criminal report, she said.
Well, that would be good. To disencourage false accusations that can terribly hurt innocent males. And women that are truly raped.
Mario Trujillo, spokesman for the West Contra Costa Unified School District, said school officials are less concerned with punishing the student than making sure he gets the support he needs to feel safe and comfortable.
"We recognize that life is complicated, and at the end of the day this is a request for help," Trujillo said.
