No child should be bullied, singled out, treated poorly, etc, for any reason. That goes without saying. However, this policy goes way beyond protecting children and instead actively promotes gender confusion, something that is deeply harmful to a child's psyche and potentially physical body. Young children are not mentally, emotionally, or physically mature enough to proclaim they're "trapped in the wrong body" and so if a child makes that claim, the right response should be to go to the parents right away and let them address it. Public schools should have no authority to encourage and promote gender confusion to developing children. By doing so, they'll be making it 'cool' and creating an avenue for children who don't fit in to find some sort of community or way to fit in that will potentially carry negative repercussions for them the rest of their lives. Stop the child abuse and political BS. Focus on reading, writing, and arithmetic, and leave the social experiments at home!!
