If you were thinking the whole transgender debate couldn’t possibly reach new levels of insanity, you’re about to be sorely disappointed.
A school district in Maryland is now instructing teachers to allow transgender students to bunk with children of the gender they identify as without informing the parents.
You simply can’t make this stuff up.
TheBlaze is reporting, In a video of a June meeting titled “Supporting Transgender Students in School,” Bob Mosier, the district’s chief communications officer, told teachers and administrators how to handle transgender issues at overnight school-related events:
Many of you might be asking yourselves, “So I’m at an overnight field trip, and I have student who’s biologically a male, identifies as a female and we’ve worked with that student and her family, and that student wants to sleep in the dorms, or whatever sleeping arrangements are, with the females. They don’t want to sleep in a room by themselves; they want to sleep with the rest of the females. So what do we do?”
And the answer is, they sleep with the females. That’s not the easy answer; it’s the right answer. And in some cases, it’s going to cause issues, because … the private information piece doesn’t allow you to share that with parents of all of the other campers. Right? So that’s difficult.Another school official had just explained how such issues relating to a student’s personal information, including identity, are “private” and not to be discussed with other parents.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is what the United States looks like under the leadership of extreme left-wing progressives.
It should be totally obvious why such a policy — allowing a biologically male teenager who identifies as a female, for example, to bunk with biological females — is a bad idea.
It’s absolutely horrid to think these folks actually want to implement such a plan, but to then go and purposefully avoid informing parents of this rule is crossing a line that should never be crossed.
Schools are entrusted with the care of children and when they fail in that duty, it’s the parent’s right to decide how to proceed from that point forward. Since this rule places kids in danger, parents have the right to know about it and opt out of situations where this policy would apply without penalty.
Let’s hope this district comes to its senses and doesn’t enforce this horrid idea.
