A Transgendered Student In The Third Grade?

And now folks we have reached the end of the line when it comes to this particular line of absurdity

The issue of being transgender usually pops up with students in high school. However, a 2nd grade boy wants to dress as a girl and wants teachers and students to address him with a girl's name.

"As a public school system, our calling is to educate all kids no matter where they come from, what their background is, beliefs, values, it doesn't matter," said Whei Wong, Douglas County Schools spokesperson.

Of course there's actually a support group to advocate on behalf of this idiocy.

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 children as young as 5 years old are realizing their true gender identity and her group wants to help parents who may be resisting the acceptance of this.

"Parents are likely to think this it's a phase, but how long do phases last?" said Pearson. "With these kids, it's something that's very consistent."

Look, I don't have kids and am not an expert on them but kids as young as 5 can't be trusted to know what they want for lunch let alone what gender they want to live their lives as. That's why they are ...CHILDREN.

Let's see, you can lose custody of you children for smoking in this country but letting them change their gender identification is simply a lifestyle choice to be accommodated is just fine? Something is very, very wrong here.
