Sex Changes For Kids In Elementary School? That Is Insane
Oh yeah, this kid is going to be spending a lot — and I mean a LOT — of time in therapy,
The issue of being transgender usually pops up with students in high school. Now a second grade Colorado boy wants to dress as a girl and be addressed with a girl’s name.
…The student had attended this same school in years prior, but had left to go to classes in another district for about two years.
Dave M. thinks classmates will recognize the change.
“I do think that there’s going to be an acknowledgment that ‘Why are you in a dress this year when you were in pants last year?'” Dave said.
Wong says teachers are planning to address the student by name instead of using “he” or “she.”
The child will not use the regular boys or girls bathroom. Instead, two unisex bathrooms in the building will be made available.
The school is handing out packets to parents who have questions. The packets contain information about people who are transgender.
“I think it is unusual,” said Wong. “It’s something we haven’t had discussions about before. It’s something that we haven’t maybe really had to think about before, but now we will.”
Family Therapist Larry Curry hopes the child and the child’s parents are seeing a counselor just to be safe.
“I am very concerned because with the guidelines in place, this is a very early age,” said Curry. “I don’t know too many parents who are equipped to answer that kind of question or deal with it without some other support.”
Kim Pearson says the family is getting support. She is the executive director of a national organization called TransYouth Family Advocates. The group has been working with the family and Douglas County Schools.
“Initially there was a lot of resistance,” said Pearson. “Now, their position is they want this child to be safe in their school.”
Pearson says their group is working with an increasing number of families nationwide who have elementary age transgender kids.
“We know that families are more comfortable talking about this,” she said. “There was no place for parents to go.”
Pearson says children as young as five years old are realizing their true gender identity and her group wants to help parents who may be resisting the acceptance of this.
Setting aside the fact that people who have sex change operations are mentally disturbed and that you can no more change your gender than you can change from a human being into a Hippopotamus, a kid in 2nd grade is just too young to have this done.
And worse yet, to do this to the kid and then put him back in school with people who know him…that is horrific. I don’t care how much literature you give these kids and their parents, this kid will always be a weird freak to most of them. How many friends is this kid going to have in school? Is he ever going to get to go out on a date? Is he ever going to have any kind of a normal life?
To make this sort of decision for a kid at that age, a decision that will have incredibly negative ramifications, is morally wrong, should be condemned in the strongest of terms, and should actually be illegal.
