A Catholic high school student in Canada was reportedly arrested Monday
after being suspended for protesting against transgender people's use of
bathrooms and saying there are only two genders – and now he's appealing
to Ontario's human rights tribunal.

Josh Alexander, 16, said the leadership of St. Joseph’s Catholic High
School in Renfrew, Ontario, told him that his continued attendance would
be "detrimental to the physical and mental well-being" of transgender
students, according to the Epoch Times.

The high school junior tweeted that Ontario police arrested and charged
him after he attempted to attend class in violation of an exclusion order
following his suspension earlier this school year.

"Offense is obviously defined by the offended," Alexander told the Epoch
Times. "I expressed my religious beliefs in class and it spiraled out of
control. Not everybody’s going to like that. That doesn’t make me a bully.
It doesn’t mean I’m harassing anybody. They express their beliefs and I
express mine. Mine obviously don’t fit the narrative."


Alexander, who described himself as a "born-again Christian" and led
student action in support of last year's trucker convoy, reportedly has
not been to school since he was first suspended in November. He was hit
with a suspension for allegedly organizing protests at his school against
biological males in girls' bathrooms and arguing in class that God created
two unchangeable genders.

"Multiple students, including trans students, were kind of shouting me
down," the student told the Epoch Times of the classroom exchange.

Alexander said he was told by his principal that he was allowed to return
to school only if he stopped using the "dead name," or given name, of
transgender students and excluded himself from classes with two
transgender students who objected to his religious views about gender.

Even though it was lifted in January, Alexander's suspension has
effectively continued after the Renfrew County Catholic District School
Board "excluded" him for the rest of the school year, according to his
legal counsel at Liberty Coalition Canada. Alexander remains unsure
whether the technically non-disciplinary action will continue into next

Alexander's lawyer, James Kitchen, said the school has accused his client
of "bullying" transgender students.


"Obviously, he doesn’t actually bully them as that term would be defined
by … reasonable people," Kitchen told the Epoch Times. "He’s not going to
seek them out and call them names and make fun of them. But he does
express his views about what these people say and about what they believe
and about what they’re doing. And he expresses them online, and he
expresses them in the class."

Later this month, Alexander plans to appeal his original suspension to the
provincial human rights tribunal, which would bring his case before a
school board panel. The appeal has reportedly hit a technical snag
regarding whether Alexander is independent of his parents.

The principal of St. Joseph’s Catholic High School told Fox News Digital
he was prohibited under Canadian law from commenting on the ongoing case.
