Admin Note: In a December 24, 2018 story in the LGBT publication OUT attacking “bigots,” and with a theme of “making things up,” journalist Samantha Riedel, @SamusMcQueen incorrectly claims the Hercules High School attack on a transgender student in a school bathroom actually occurred. Riedel claims the student had to be hospitalized. Bathroom Incidents has asked for a retraction of the false information.
