Schools will now be required to accept a student’s gender identity on face value.
“A student who says she is a girl and wishes to be regarded that way throughout the school day and throughout every or almost every other area of her life, should be respected and treated like a girl,” the guidelines stipulate. They go on to say, "The responsibility for determing a student's gender identity rests with the student. As a result, the person best situated to determine a student's gender identity is that student himself or herself."
In other words, any red-blooded, hormone-driven teenaged boy can simply say he feels like a girl, and, according to the directives, the school will be required to allow him to hang out in the girls' locker room while they are showering after gym class. And here's the best part. Any female student objecting to this would be shown "firm disapproval and possible discipline" for not "affirming or supporting" her "transgender" classmate.
The 11-page directive also urges schools to eliminate gender-based clothing and gender-based activities – like having boys and girls line up separately to leave the classroom.
Does anyone wonder why homeschooling is becoming increasingly popular in America?
