According to the Oakland Tribune, a high school senior who “does not identify as male or female but rather as nonbinary gender,” sustained second- and third-degree burns.
Sasha Fleischman fell asleep on the bus home when allegedly, a 16-year-old suspect lit his kilt-like skirt on fire.
“He likes to wear a skirt. It’s his statement,” his mother Debbie Fleischman said. “That’s how he feels comfortable dressing.”
An online donation page has been set up for Fleischman which includes a message board filled with well wishes from family members and friends. Supporters have already raised over $13,000 of their $20,000 goal.
According to a blog post on the donation site, Fleischman underwent the first of his many surgeries today.
