In a 6-0 vote Stafford County School Board voted to require a transgendered child to use a single stall bathroom, a staff bathroom, or the bathroom that matches his biological gender.[read_more]
The School board meeting was packed, standing room only. The overwhelming majority of people did not want boys who dress as girls to be allowed to use girls’ restrooms or locker rooms. Four speakers spoke out against changing the policy of allowing students to use the bathroom of the opposite sex if they believe they are the opposite sex. Fifteen parents spoke against the policy, some saying their children would have to leave the schools if the policy remained in effect.
I have many of the exact same beliefs that many of you do,” Jonathon Adams said to those who opposed the school system’s initial action. “I was astonished. And then I watched my little girl grow up. I’m very proud to have a special little girl. I don’t mean just on the outside.”
Curtis Lineweaver, a parent leader opposed to the policy said,
The perception in the community is that the school board is throwing away the rights of many children for the wants of some confused children”.
It is very detrimental and confusing to a child to have parents who encourage this cross dressing behavior. How sad for a child to not have parents who teach him what his gender is and what is appropriate for his gender in the family and in society. How sad that these parents want their son to pretend to be their daughter. With parents like this is it any wonder the child is confused about his gender identity? They are setting up this child to have a very difficult, confused, and painful life. It’s very sad that they would do this to their child and very sad that our society allows them to do this to a child. It’s abusive.
