How not to help children

From here:

Parents across the country were predictably outraged and quickly pressured schools to remove the books from circulation. As of Wednesday, however, schools in Fairfax, County, Virginia began reintroducing “Gender Queer” in the name of diversity.

Yes for high schools!

Underage children should not be exposed to pornography. They especially should not be exposed to child pornography (depictions of children having sex).

Why? Because this makes them believe having sex is normal for kids their age.

Again this is for teenagers grades 10 and up. Not underage children!

Two of the books in question — “Gender Queer: A Memoir” by Maia Kobabe and “Lawn Boy” by Jonathon Evison — were disseminated to schools across the country on the recommendation of two prominent national school library associations — the School Library Journal and the Young Adult Library Services Association.

Again these books are for high schoolsers only! Saying that they are given to children and not teenagers to normalize child sex is absurd!

Many such schools believe they have saved children from their bigoted parents. In doing so, these people are using the same strategy used by pedophiles — leading parents to believe they can be trusted when, in reality, they are secretly grooming their children behind their backs.

Stalking and Targeting Vulnerable Children

Perhaps the most disgusting tactic used by pedophiles is the stalking and targeting of vulnerable children.

“Offenders are thought to have a radar for children in disadvantaged situations,” Palfy wrote. “Vulnerable children include those who haven’t yet learned that some people can’t be trusted, those with low self-esteem, and those in need of friends.”

According to an investigation conducted by journalist and author Abigail Shrier, the California Teachers Association (CTA) held a conference in October “advising teachers on best practices for subverting parents, conservative communities and school principals on issues of gender identity and sexual orientation.”

According to Shrier, speakers at the conference went so far as to “tout their surveillance of students’ Google searches, internet activity, and hallway conversations” in order to root out children most confused and curious about LGBT issues.

In other words, they’re stalking and targeting vulnerable kids, just as a pedophile would do.

One teacher who spoke at the conference, Lori Caldeira — a Buena Vista Middle School teacher and LGBTQ-club leader — admitted she wanted to help confused middle school students looking to define themselves “as a separate entity from their parents.”

“So the kids come, they have something on their mind they want to talk about it and then we have some structures in place for how to have those kind of complicated conversations. And you know, they include those group norms about respect: What happens in this room, stays in this room,” Caldeira said.

So they give them a safe space to talk about LGBT issues…but are they encourging people to become gay in the process or just be non-judgemental?

This assumes that children are 100% safe at home when this isn’t always the case.

And here:

In its review, one FCPS committee noted that “there is no pedophilia present” in “Lawn Boy,” despite previous reports to the contrary.

Sex between people of the same age is pedophilia?

Indeed, parents previously believed that “Lawn Boy” depicted a young boy having sex with an adult man, but this accusation turned out to be born out of a misreading.

Ah I see, you admit that it was BS.

Even without the pedophilia accusations, however, it is undeniably true that the book contains child pornography.

“My protagonist, Mike, has a sexual experience at a youth group meeting at the age of ten with another ten-year-old boy, which Mike is still ashamed of in early adulthood,” Evison wrote for a blog called NW Book Lovers

“Mike owns this particular sexual experience, and revisits it through a (sometimes uncomfortable) humorous lens as he re-contextualizes the event as a part of his self-actualization. There is graphic language in this scene, which depicts sexual acts.”

And that alone isn’t the legal definition of child porn.

And here:

Does your child have issues with gender dysphoria? Are they identifying as a different gender at school and asking teachers to use their preferred pronouns? Do you think this is something you, as their mother or father, should have some control over?

Check your parental privilege, say school administrators in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Yes because children don’t have any ability to think of themselves in any sort of way and thus parents have the right to make sure to force their children to act in the maner they want them to present their gender iregardless of what the child wants!

The parents would be told. They just had no say in it anymore, that’s all. See? No big deal! The school would do the right thing and open up conversations with their parents to explain why they shouldn’t have objections anymore.

Off course they realize that affirming how a child chooses to express themselves is healthy right?

Why do they assume children doing so behind their back is a sign of abuse? Projection perhaps?

These policies are of questionable constitutionality and again raise questions regarding recognizing cases that might constitute rapid-onset gender dysphoria without professional psychological or medical intervention.

ROGD doesn’t exist at all. This is just concern trolling at this point.

More importantly, however, it’s a school board unequivocally saying that parental value judgments about gender identity not only don’t matter, they’re wrong and any decisions regarding them are being taken out of parents’ hands. This is the madness of transgender ideology: The school knows best. It’ll not only teach your kids, it’ll teach you, dear hidebound parent.

Thank heavens they’re around, no?

Off course you don’t prove that the “parents” views are more valid than objective reality.

And this:

The department’s model policies encourage schools to “minimize social stigmatization for [transgender] students and maximize opportunities for social integration so that all students have an equal opportunity to attend school, be engaged, and achieve academic success.”

The policies and definitions, however, are quite broad and leave implementation and more specific regulation to local school boards and administrators. The state imposed guidelines but provided little clarity, according to Wagner.

“The school board meeting where they actually adopted protections for trans students, it was very contentious. But at the same time, the school board did nothing to communicate implementation to kind of calm those fears,” Wagner said.

“They did nothing, nothing. The discussion was basically saying, you know, ‘We’re going to fight for trans rights and we’re not going to let these awful people … harm our trans students.'”

Wagner pointed out that the definition of “gender expression” in the school policies made the implementation of rules especially hard.

The policies define gender expression as “the manner in which a person represents or expresses their gender identity or role to others, often through appearance, clothing, hairstyles, behavior, activities, voice, or mannerisms. Gender expression may change over time and from day-to-day and is not necessarily related to the person’s gender identity.”

If “gender expression” can change from day to day, how are teachers supposed to treat their students?

Considering that this is about expression and not about identity, no differently than anybody else.

At least according to the document you choose to ignore:

Transgender students have the right to dress in a manner consistent with their gender identity or gender expression, and any student has the right to expression free from gender expectations, as long as the student’s attire complies with the school’s dress code. Dress codes should be written, enforced, and applied consistently and equally to all students regardless of gender. In addition, § 22.1-279.6 of the Code of Virginia permits any school board to include in its code of student conduct a dress or grooming code. For school divisions who do include dress and grooming standards for students, the amendment explicitly states that any dress or grooming code shall “maintain gender neutrality by subjecting any student to the same set of rules and standards regardless of gender;…not have a disparate impact on students of a particular gender.”

It goes into more detail…so again, “parents” are concern trolling.

“This document addresses how teachers and staff should address transgender and non-binary students, and they’re telling them that gender can change from day to day. So this puts teachers and parents in a weird place,” Wagner said.
The policies also allow for students to use whatever restrooms they choose.

“I support a transgender student who has come out and basically established themselves as transgender using whatever bathroom they choose, but this is getting a little bit wishy-washy for me,” Wagner said.

“These are K-12 schools. There’s going to be a lot of immature behavior, you know, pushing boundaries, hormones raging. This does not seem to be easily implemented by the staff and, considering where we’re at in our community and the ongoing discussions about [cancel culture] and, you know, wokeism, I’m concerned that maybe teachers … won’t step in and correct immature or outright bad behavior because of this. They’re put in a very awkward place.”

Again, from the document:

Nondiscrimination policy and related complaint procedures should be readily accessible to students and parents/guardians. While there are existing procedures for complaints related to discrimination, harassment, and bullying, school divisions may consider emphasizing steps that a student or parent may take for complaints specifically related to discrimination based on gender identity. For example, a division-level ombudsman or team may be established to hear concerns brought by students, families, and staff when their concerns are not resolved at the school level. This division-level ombudsman or team may also be available to provide consultations to school staff with questions regarding the implementation of the policies. To assist staff in understanding how to provide a safe educational environment for transgender students, refer to considerations for training under the Professional Development and Training section.

They refuse to read the document…
