An 8-year-old girl from Virginia has been pulled out of school after administrators threatened to kick her out for looking too much like a boy.

The grandparents of Sunnie Kahle say they got a letter home stating that if the girl doesn’t follow the “Biblical standards” she will not be allowed back next year.

“Sunnie says, ‘I’m a girl, I know I’m a girl’ and she said then you know, you’re acting like and looking, and wanting to look and act like a boy” said Doris Carroll, her grandmother, according to WNET.

It also said that students are confused if Sunnie is a boy or a girl.

“We believe that unless Sunnie as well as her family clearly understand that God has made her female, and her dress and behavior need to follow suit with her God-ordained identity, that TCS is not the best place for her future education,” read a letter from the school, according to WSET News.

The school told her grandparents they can refuse enrollment to any gay student or one with gender issues.

Sunnie has been pulled out of the school because she no longer feels welcome.

    What are these "so called parents" teaching their kids, that's its ok to exclude those that are different, discriminate. Did Christ exclude Mary Magdalene, no he did not. This tomboy should be sought out and brought back into the flock and accepted with all her differences and judge not by her looks, but by the content of their character. I hope the school and parents are not judge as they have judged others, when their time comes.
