Do you know who your kids are at school?
If your children go to a public school in Michigan, you may soon be intentionally kept in the dark.
…a boy named “Jake” could become a girl named “Jane” at school, seemingly without his parents ever knowing.
Without his parents ever knowing. Isn’t that grand? Those running our public schools complain that parents aren’t involved enough with their kids, but now they’re going to intentionally cut you out of your child’s life.
Because, you know, your kids get to decide what gender they are, all on their own, like it’s no big deal. No parent needed. No doctor needed. They get to arbitrarily decide for themselves. And they get to choose which locker room they want.
Students who are bothered by having members of the opposite sex in their locker rooms can request “an adjusted changing schedule” or “use of a private area in the facility.”
So, basically, the student’s whose “gender” doesn’t match their plumbing, can use whatever bathroom/locker room they want. If they want to use the facilities of the opposite sex, because they’re not comfortable with their own, by all means have at it. The school will see to it that they are not inconvenienced. They’re feelings are important.
On the other hand, the student’s whose “gender” does match their plumbing, has to put up with whatever the confused student decides. Despite the fact that it may bother the non-confused student, they are the ones that will be inconvenienced. They can use a different facility or schedule. They can be put out. Their feelings are not important.
If a person’s mind doesn’t match their plumbing, it’s a problem. But by all means, let’s reinforce the problem instead of working to resolve it.
The purpose of the guidance, according to the document, is to further the state’s “goals of cultivating and sustaining caring, supportive, respectful, and affirming learning environments that provide for the education, safety, and welfare of all students.”
This is just a bold-faced lie. If they were truly interested in the welfare of all students, they wouldn’t violate the privacy of some. And when I say some, I mean the majority. But you can bet, when something goes wrong, it’ll be the parent who’s responsible for not knowing what’s going on with their child.
