For allegedly posing

Where’s the respect for her identity?

A 29-year-old woman has been arrested in New Jersey for allegedly posing as a high school student.

How do they know she was posing as rather than identifying as?

The woman, identified by police as Hyejeong Shin, has been charged with using a fake identification document to enrol in New Brunswick High School.

Ms Shin attended the school for four days before staff found out her age.

But age is just numbers on a piece of paper. If her soul is 17, who is the school to deny it?

The issue came to light at a local education board meeting on Tuesday, where New Brunswick Public School District Superintendent Aubrey Johnson told attendees that Ms Shin was caught at the school.

“Last week, by filing some false documents, an adult female posing as a student was able to be enrolled in our high school,” Mr Johnson said.

But what if she’s a teenager in her mind? How can they dismiss her reality like that? Trans teenagers are teenagers!
