Transgendered 1st Grader

Today I’m going to talk about this story from CNN:

Colorado school bars transgendered 1st-grader from using girls’ restroom

If you don’t have time to read, it boils down to this. There is a 1st grade boy (he is biologically a boy – he has a penis and no other confused equipment, 100% male) who has decided that he is a girl. He has worn a dress to school every day for a year and makes everyone refer to him as a girl. The parents support and encourage this. The school doesn’t want a BOY with a PENIS using the girls bathroom. The parents of the girls aren’t super excited about a boy going into the bathroom with their little girls, either. So the school has decided he has to use the boys restroom or the unisex bathroom.

The parents are suing the school and claiming discrimination.

First off, this could only happen in Colorado. What a bunch of atheist yahoos. A little boy does not out of nowhere say “I am convinced I’m a girl and from now on I’m wearing a dress.” That’s hogwash. That idea, purposefully or not, has been put into his head. When a boy says “Mommy, I’m a girl because I like playing with dolls and I like the color pink” a normal mom says “You can’t be a girl, because you’re a boy, but it’s great that you love pink and like dolls – lots of boys like to play with dolls.”

The normal response isn’t “Oh, you think you’re a girl? Here, we’ll dye your hair purple and put you in a dress and call you a girl’s name.” What. The. Hell?

Several major cities in the US have passed laws allowing male transgendered people to use the women’s bathrooms in public. And, as you would imagine, there’s been a rash of straight, perverted guys putting on dresses so they could go hang out in the ladies room. I’m not saying it’s impossible for someone to have dysphoria and think they’re a girl, but I’m saying that doesn’t MAKE them a girl.

When I was a kid I thought I was a superhero. But no matter how much I thought so, I couldn’t jump tall buildings in a single leap. If I thought I was a car, the ACLU would try to fight for my right to get oil changes.

The parents of this little boy should be publicly flogged for being such unbelievable asshats. The school is correct for protecting all of the little girls at that school from having to have a boy in their bathroom.

What happens when this kid gets to high school and wants to shower with the girls and play on the girls volleyball team? At what point do we say ENOUGH?

I’m sure the school will lose in court. I’m just glad my daughter doesn’t go to that school.
