The amount of ignorance and hate in these comments is vile.
As the parent of a trans person, it is heartbreaking to watch your child deal with the extra weight and negativity they must wade through, on top of the normal confusion and hurt one can experience being a child/ teen. All because of misinformation and sheer unwillingness to better educate yourselves and your own children. Being trans/ LGBTQ+ isn’t something that should carry the negative assumptions many people place on that title. After all, it’s a title. These children/ teens are still just children and teens, who are going through the same you went through as a kid, and that your kids and grandkids are going through now, only magnified.
Any resources to make school more accessible and safer for our students are appreciated, but action is needed to ensure that ALL students have a safe, constructive, and nurturing environment on the classroom.
We have to do more to deconstruct the institutional barriers we have long propped up against the LGBTQIA+ community.
