A male cheerleader at Garfield-Palouse High School in Palouse isn't content to do typical male stunts or be the mascot.

A male cheerleader at Garfield-Palouse High School in Palouse isn’t content to do typical male stunts or be the mascot.

Benjamin Grundy wants to do the same dance and kicks as the girl cheerleaders. He says school administrators are discriminating against him.

KXLY reports Grundy and his mother, Suzanne Grundy, say school officials should be reprimanded for causing him severe emotional trauma.

Superintendent Beverly Fox won’t comment on the specific case but says district policy is that every student has the same rights everybody has, without discrimination.

Suzanne Grundy says “the combination of a bi-racial, mentally challenged gay male may be too much for them.”
