Denver Public Schools Mandate Transgender Bathrooms & Other Stupid Ideas
Isn’t it strange that when we were all students in school a few decades ago, none of us had any transgender classmates? Now that schools are teaching kids starting in kindergarten that there are 57 fluid genders and you can be cool if you pick anything but the first two, it seems like we have tranny kids all over the place. Weird!
It’s almost as if these two phenomena are somehow related. Hypothesis: Confusing kids about basic biology leads to more confusion.
The Denver School Board just voted unanimously (not a single “No” vote) to force all public schools in the district to provide at least one transgender bathroom. Oh, but if you think the Denver School Board stopped there, you don’t understand the modern left’s woke social justice politics at all!
We’re in a crisis, ladies and gentlemen. Oh… whoops.
We’re in a crisis, everyone! All of the 2020 Democrat presidential candidates acknowledged this in the helpful CNN forum on gay and mostly transgender “rights.” According to activists who kept stealing the microphones at that forum, “Transgender black women are being killed in the streets!” According to the Human Rights Campaign 22 transgender people were killed in 2019. One is too many, but let’s put this number into perspective. In 2018 there were over 16,200 murders in the U.S. Does 22 really feel like an epidemic? No.
But whatever! It’s a crisis and the Denver School Board is not going to sit there quietly. They know that love trumps hate or something, so they had a lot more to impose on the Denver Public Schools before they were done.
All Denver School District employees are now mandated to “honor and respect a student’s self-reported gender identity and gender expression.”
Honor and respect, indeed. The message to Denver School District employees, especially the teachers, is clear: You will obey our political wishes or there will be consequences.
Even if you are a normal person teaching in a Denver classroom, you have to bend the knee, kiss the ring and “honor and respect” every student’s confusion and/or mental illness, while pretending this is normal.
To Denver teachers: Sacrifice all of your dignity and personal beliefs to the teacher union’s woke social justice politics – or else.
Oh, did you think that the Denver School Board was done? Oh ho ho ho noooo! They were just getting warmed up. Transgender teachers in Denver – because apparently that’s a thing now – are free to talk about their weirdness in front of students and will face no disciplinary action from the School Board if they decide to do that. Call it a hunch, but I’m just guessing that adult men who dress up in prom dresses for attention will want to take advantage of that new rule.
And if you’re a parent who doesn’t want their student listening to the football coach blathering about his new set of fake boobs, too bad! What are you, some sort of Trump-supporting Nazi bigot? This is about protecting the rights of transgender teachers, which is now a real thing in Denver.
You’ll just have to set aside your antiquated notions that teachers don’t have any business ever talking about their own sex lives or sexuality in front of students, because this moment in history is too important. Why are you trying to silence transgender voices?
Finally, the Denver resolution says that teachers are free to hang rainbow banners and flags all around their classrooms. The resolution doesn’t say what the penalty is if a teacher doesn’t show sufficient zeal and excitement for transgenders, but we’re sure the district overlords will think up something creative.
Parents in other countries aren’t quite as thrilled about transgender mania in the schools. In the UK, they now have massive truancy problems among girls. They’re afraid to use the mandatory gender-neutral bathrooms there because so many aggressive boys bully and sexually harass them in the bathrooms. British girls have to skip out of school to try to find a public women’s restroom just so they can pee in peace.
In Australia, the federal government just banned gender neutral bathrooms in all public schools. A single school in Queensland had tried to foist gender neutral bathrooms on the kids. The public outrage from parents was so great that the national government stepped in to protect the children. I guess the parents in Denver don’t love their kids as much as the Australians do.
