(Scroll down for video) A little boy was suspended from an after school program because he dressed like girl.
The mother of Romeo Clarke, 5, has spoken out after he has been banned from the church-run after school club.
At home, Clarke has a collection of 100 dresses and eight pairs of high heels. The organizers of the after school program accused him of confusing the other children with his choice of clothes.
Georgina Clarke has filed a complaint, stating that her child is being discriminated against. Georgina, 36, who has three other children, was speechless when she was told that her boy is being suspended. She said that all she was able to ask was “why?”
The mother insisted that this is not a case where her boy is trapped in someone else’s body. “He is a regular boy. He just likes to wear dresses because he has three older sisters,” Georgina said.
Romeo attends the St. Marie’s Catholic Primary School in Rugby, Warwickshire. He also attended the Buzz Children’s Club. The organizers of the after school program said that whenever the little boy decides to wear normal boy clothes he is welcome to come back.
Romeo’s father, 42-year-old Winston Morris, said that he does not care how his boy dresses. “He can be anything he wants to be. Romeo will not go back to that club,” Morris said.
