Transgender Day of Remembrance

The “woke” war between parents and teachers rages on in America, with one anti-capitalist teacher in a Minnesota middle school...
I ask the same on my "Getting To Know You" sheet, provided on day one. I ask their pronoun preference and if it is okay to use in communicating with parents. My reason for asking "permission" stems from a former student who was ritually abused by parents for daring to be transgender. I certainly do not want to be the one to invite abuse.

I did like this part from the article - “That we live in a country where schools are actively pushing kids to change their gender and hide it from their parents is something I never thought I would face as a parent,” Kimberly S. Hermann from the Southeastern Legal Foundation told Fox News.

Who the fuck is pushing kids? Certainly not schools/teachers. If anyone is pushing, it's regressives who are trying to shove everyone into one of two boxes they feel are sufficient. That way, their delicate sensibilities aren't challenged or damaged.

On a similar note: I person wants to start a business, I Assume to make money, but then reuse to handle customers she disagrees with, that doesn't seem to make good business sense to me, by cutting out 1/2 your clients?

A smart businessperson would take her rejected customers and would then make more money from all types of clients, by thinking out of the box

1/2 your customers? I’d love to see the statistic that backs up that claim.

When a student enters your classroom how do you determine the student's gender? Do their parents enroll them as a boy or girl or something else, and if so, what would you do if the student decides to identify as something other than what they are enrolled as? This is not a hypothetical, it's already happened.

“A Catholic mom in Northern California enrolled her daughter in a public charter school. During her initial Zoom classes, the girl, an incoming freshman who had not yet stepped foot in the school due to COVID-19, was asked her name and “preferred pronouns.”

She chose a male name and male pronouns. The school then routinely used this information without informing her parents, and then began to socially transition the child—the first in a series of steps culminating in a so-called “sex change.”

It’s a measure of the peril of our culture that these parents have asked that I protect their anonymity. They have good reason to fear: soon after they voiced their anger with school officials, Child Protective Services showed up at their doorstep”.

I am not concerned about determining my students’ gender. It isn’t germane to the content. I want to know their preferred name (such as Thomas or Tommy) and preferred pronoun. I honor their requests to the best of my ability (acknowledging I may make mistakes).

Should I teach each child differently based on gender? Why do I need to know their gender?

Your first instinct isn't to hate people that are different than you.
For some, it is.
You're a good human.
Jesus was woke.

Are they assigned a gender when they enroll?

I don't believe anyone "assigns" a child a gender, when they enroll. Probably more along the lines of "check off that which applies to you", with Male and Female being the only choices.

Why does this matter so much, to you? Seriously, why? And, spare us the righteous indignation that it doesn't. This point, along with who "the Big Guy" might be are almost all you've been yammering about.

Because it's destructive. It's harming things like women's sport, results in boys on girls locker rooms and men in women's prison, and in extreme cases, the surgical mutilation of children. All in the service of some woke fiction that you can be anything you imagine yourself to be.

Let's get real, we all make judgments about people's gender based on their appearance. They are all either men or women, boys or girls, even those living out a fantasy that they are not what they are. When a student walks into your classroom you automatically deem them to be boy or girl.

I believe that the small percentage of the population that feel they are not what they are should be treated with respect and dignity but it's stupid to attempt to restructure society to conform to their fiction.

Cites? Let’s see the numbers so we can determine just how pernicious this scourge is. That’s how you rebut the stochastic terrorism accusation. Show us just how big this problem is. Let’s see the facts.

Right after you demonstrate that my commentary here leads people to commit mass murder.
