Like you needed another reason to abandon government schools. Well, there is one more, and it won’t be the last one. Massachusetts has put out an 11-page directive on “transgendered students.” I didn’t even know there could be “transgendered” middle and high school students. The new rules would allow transgender students to use restrooms of their choice. Here’s the kicker. Any student who did not affirm or support their transgender classmates would be shown firm disapproval and possible discipline.
This would mean that if some guy thought he was really a girl, he could use the girl’s bathroom. He would still have his male “equipment” and the hormones to go with it, and any girl in the bathroom would have to grim and tolerate the idiocy. To show disapproval or fear could mean a trip to the principal’s office or worse. Maybe a “hate-crime” charge could be made.
The directives are so unbelievably written that at first I thought the whole thing was a joke. But it’s not. Get this one:
“A student who says she is a girl and wishes to be regarded that way throughout the school day and throughout every, or almost every, other area of her life, should be respected and treated like a girl.”
What if the next day the guy who thought he was a girl yesterday decides he’s a boy today? It’s his/her decision, and woe to anyone who objects.
“According to the Dept. of Education, transgender students are those whose assigned birth sex does not match their ‘internalized sense of their gender.’
“They said gender nonconforming students ‘range in the ways in which they identify as male, female, some combination of both, or neither.’
“‘The responsibility for determining a student’s gender identity rests with the student,’ the guidelines dictate. ‘One’s gender identity is an innate, largely inflexible characteristic of each individual’s personality that is generally established by age four… As a result, the person best situated to determine a student’s gender identity is that student himself or herself.’”
It gets worse. We know that teenage girls can kill their pre-born babies without parental notification. In Massachusetts, parents won’t be contacted about their child’s gender identity.
“School personnel should speak with the student first before discussing a student’s gender nonconformity or transgender status with the student’s parent or guardian.”
These people are insane, and they are setting the curriculum and social policies for tens of thousands of young people in the state of Massachusetts who will one day be messing up the rest of America with their confused sexual identity politics.
There is no way to fix government schools. Get your kids out while you still can and before they come home dressed like Norman Bates from Psycho.
