The decade's most triggering comedy
A 35-year-old Washington woman allegedly told authorities she identifies as a 15-year-old boy after she was arrested for harboring runaway teens and accused of providing them with drugs and alcohol and sexting them.
Amanda Dorrough was charged with unlawful harboring of minors earlier this month after police said they discovered Dorrough planned to flee Seattle with a group of teenagers, Fox News reported. The adult woman was arrested on May 4 after the vice principal at Port Angeles High School, northwest of Seattle, reportedly contacted police after two students revealed their plan to run away with Dorrough, who went by the nickname “Taz” with the group of teens.
Dorrough, who the Daily Mail reports is a mother of three children, allegedly told Clallam County Jail staff that she identifies as a 15-year-old boy.
“She feels like teenagers ‘understand’ her better” and that “she ‘identifies’ better with teenage kids,” the report said.
Police found Dorrough in a gully with a boy amid a heap of blankets, “two empty condom packets, one unopened condom, a bra, and an empty cigarette packet with a lighter,” according to the police report. At least 10 different incident reports received by police allegedly involved Borrough and her relationship with minors.

Neighbors reportedly called the police after witnessing minors enter and leave Dorrough’s apartment regularly. One neighbor also said the adult woman was seen topless in the hallway with a boy who appeared to be around 13 years old, according to the report. Police also said that Dorrough was kicked out of a Boys and Girls Club over “perceived ‘predatory’ behavior.”
When police arrived at the woman’s apartment on May 2, two days before her arrest, they spotted three teenagers running through the parking lot away from Dorrough’s apartment. One officer reportedly heard movement inside Dorrough’s apartment, but police were unable to talk to anyone inside.
The police report — which was first reported by radio host Jason Rantz — alleges that the adult woman got naked in front of minors, touched one inappropriately, and gave them marijuana. One of Dorrough’s alleged victims reportedly told authorities that the 35-year-old woman was “pedophile-ish.” When one of the minors told Dorrough he wasn’t interested in her, she allegedly got upset and said she would kill herself.
Dorrough was not charged with any sexual offenses and was released on bond on May 14, just 10 days after her arrest.
