To: Governor of Tennessee, Bill Lee; Senator Marsha Blackburn (R); Senator Lamar Alexander (R); Superintendent of the Hamilton County School District,  Bryan Johnson:

With profound outrage, we wish to condemn in the strongest terms possible the classification of five-year-old boy Nathan, as a sex-offender for the "crime" of hugging and kissing his classmates. 

Enrolled as a nursery school pupil at East Ridge Elementary in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Nathan is diagnosed on the autistic spectrum. Due to their condition, autistic children have difficulty expressing and controlling emotions, while failing to understand social boundaries.

Summery Putnam, Nathan's guardian: Wrote "The school wouldn't listen to the family or their doctor about the challenges the youngster was facing... It was disclosed that it will go in his record for the rest of his life that he is a sex offender."

However, the autistic nature of the child is beyond the point!

We are talking about a five-year child, who's sexual organs or identity has yet to develop! To suggest that an innocent five-year-old boy can commit a sexual crime is ludicrous, an insult to real victims, and minimizes the actions of true perpetrators.

This disgraceful incident does well to highlight the increasing persecution of boys and men by early and advanced academia and serves as a dire warning for society.
