A New Jersey transgender blogger and her wife have been charged with endangering the welfare of children after allegedly keeping their 10-year-old autistic son in a “squalid home” covered in feces.

Kirstyn Piper, 45, who identifies as a transgender woman, and her wife Amy Plummer, 46, were arrested in Ocean County, New Jersey, according to reports. Reduxx.

The 10-year-old boy, diagnosed with autism in 2016, was found in a house with rubbish strewn and the bathroom covered in faeces in December last year.

He later revealed to detectives in an interview that he had been living in those “deplorable conditions” for a year.

The boy was immediately taken out of the house. Piper and Plummer were arrested on December 12 and released a week later pending trial.

A nurse at Lanes Mill Elementary School reported to the New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCPP) that there were “ongoing concerns” about the child’s hygiene and appearance, according to an affidavit obtained by Reduxx.

Upon arriving at his home, DCPP workers found the residence in deplorable conditions and immediately notified the police.

‘The bathroom of the residence was covered in feces. “There were several Home Depot buckets placed around the residence…containing feces,” the affidavit states.

“DCPP also reported that trash, empty bottles/cans, and recycling items were scattered throughout the residence.”

During an interview with detectives, the boy said his home had a sewage problem, which did not allow feces to be flushed down the drain.

Plummer, the mother of the boy who graduated from Kean University last year, said the problems with the pipes have continued since March 2022.

According to Plummer, Piper, also the boy’s biological mother, had allegedly “taken control” of the problem and refused to seek help from anyone.

He added that his physical disabilities prevented him from walking much and that he did not have the income to hire a plumber.

The 10-year-old boy reportedly told officers that his parents transported feces to an orange Home Depot bucket when the toilet was full.

He was unable to bathe because the bathtub was also full of feces and he had been bullied at school because of his poor hygiene, he said.

According to Reduxx, in February of last year, Piper wrote a blog post about introducing LGBTQ issues and transgender rights to children from a young age.

“As caregivers, it is our responsibility to provide a safe and inclusive environment for our children, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation,” Piper wrote in the now-deleted blog.

“By exposing them to diverse perspectives and experiences, we can help them understand and appreciate the unique struggles that people from different communities face,” Piper wrote.

The next hearing for Piper and Plummer is scheduled for March.
