So just when you thought men going into the lady’s washrooms wasn’t bad enough, now it seems “little kids” will determine their own gender. That’s right! Little kids as young as preschool!
ANGRY parents have blasted a council that wants kids as young as four to choose the gender “they most identify with” before starting school.
It wrote to parents urging them to support their child’s choice of “gender identity” in a letter confirming primary school places this week.
And it asked them to leave the gender section of a form blank if their child had “another gender identity” altogether. The letter was sent to thousands of parents preparing to send kids to new schools later this year.
Brighton and Hove City Council wrote: “We recognise that not all children and young people identify with the gender they were assigned at birth or may identify as a gender other than male or female, however the current systems (set nationally) only record gender as male or female.
“Please support your child to choose the gender they most identify with.
“Or if they have another gender identity please leave this blank and discuss with your child’s school.”
Many parents were appalled by the letter. One mother said: “Children at school should be free to develop their identity.
“They are not adults — let them enjoy the innocence and creativity of their childhood.”
Tory MP Andrew Bridgen described the letter as “utterly ridiculous”. He added: “Schools should be teaching kids to read and write, not prompting them to consider gender swaps.”
As well as girl and boy, answers included “genderqueer”, “tri-gender” and “gender fluid”.
Author Stephanie Davies-Arai, an expert on child communication skills, said: “If you say the word ‘gender’ to a child they would have no idea what it means.
“If you tell a child they are the opposite gender then they will think you mean the opposite sex. It’s very confusing and it leads to emotional problems for children.”
Cllr Emma Daniel, head of Brighton’s equalities committee, said: “We have inserted the additional text about gender identity in response to calls from families, young people and schools to show an inclusive approach.
“There are increasing numbers of children and young people nationally identifying as trans.”
REALLY? Since when is there an increasing number of children identifying as trans? Since it went from zero to .001 or .0001 of the population? Come on!
Most 4-year-olds don’t even know the meaning of that word, let alone “genderqueer”, “tri-gender” or “gender fluid”. You have got to be kidding me? Enough is enough!
Stop with the psychological gender surveys. Boys are boys. Girls are girls. Let them be kids! If a young boy wants to play with a Barbie doll, fine, but that doesn’t mean, at the young age of 4, he has a gender identity crisis? That young 4-year-old doesn’t even know what the word gender means.
Stop this INSANITY! Let kids be kids. By the way, I don’t think we had any problems with this UNTIL liberals and Obama came into the picture! Enough already!
I don’t know about you, but when I was growing up I liked playing sports, especially football. I may have even been classified as a “tom-boy”, but that didn’t make me a kid with a “gender crisis”. Who knew there were 25 gender options? Not me. How about you? Better yet…can you name them all?
