    Unfortunately, it sounds as though the youth who claimed to have been assaulted has retracted his claims, when police confronted him with inconsistencies and the fact that he did not appear to have suffered any injuries. I say unfortunately not because it is unfortunate that nothing happened in this situation, but because like other false claims it will get a lot of publicity, distracting from the very real bullying and assaults which happen far too often.
    It is unfortunate because people hear about and remember these false reports and give them too much weight when considering protections for transgender people.

      You’re assuming the recantation is because it didn’t happen. Remember that LOTS of victims of violent crimes, especially sexual assault, recant even though the crime did happen because the way cops and communities treat victims is really really awful. I HOPE this did not happen, but I wouldn’t assume it did not.
