We all want to be tolerant; I just wish the insanity of the left wouldn’t make it so hard to be.
When I was in kindergarten, my thoughts were largely preoccupied with pizza and Pokémon. But apparently there wasn’t enough gender consciousness in my five-year-old mind, and one school is looking to solve that problem.
As the Daily Caller reported:
The latest fracas involving a transgender student at a taxpayer-funded school involves a kindergarten boy whose parents are sending him to school wearing pink shoes and a jumper.
The boy’s parents, Hannah and Dave Edwards, say they are concerned about bullying and want the school to address the problem at an instructional level.
“He has said before, ‘I feel like a girl in my heart, I feel like I have both boy and girl,” dad Dave Edwards told the Fox station. “We’re not yet sure of the person that our son is. He’s in kindergarten.”
The parents say they want special treatment for their son because they don’t want to force any broad gender labels on him.
“We don’t label him,” Dave Edwards told regional ABC affiliate KAAL. “We know from what he has shown us this far, that we are going to need some protections in place to keep him safe while he’s in public school.”
According to Eric Williams, executive director at Nova Classical, teachers have thus far read elementary school-aged students a poem concerning gender nonconformity and gender identity issues.
“At that point, we talked about girls wanting to play with boy things and boys wanting to play with girl things,” Williams told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “I would say the majority of parents are supportive of our efforts.”
I’m all for teaching tolerance, but who doubts this will devolve into leftist indoctrination of impressionable young minds?
