Gay "marriage" and now this. In the early days of the politically correct movement, I can recall reading about a small town that had a Nativity display in the town square. One non-Christian family moved there- just one family- and they started complaining that they found it offensive. Eventually the town gave in and removed it. Sharia law, "honor" killings and female genital mutilation have become common in some European countries because no one had the stones to stop it in it's tracks.

When parents complain and school officials side with so-called transgender, students are being threatened with being kicked off athletic teams or charged with hate crimes if they continued to voice concerns, you better believe we are going to see more of this. I am just wondering how many "transgenders" work in that school system

I also saw this coming. It's not just schools although anything with our children is worse. It has been a problem in some business offices and will probably spread to public places - restaurants, stores, theaters and sporting events, etc.

Thankfully, this is not what is happening. Someone else thought the student was "having a blast playing the system."

I'm not arguing against your concerns, I do want to point out though that this is not simply a case of a boy making a statement of being transgendered to get a look at girls.

I understand that you do not wish to argue, but how is that you know this.

Greg have you read this article. It does not validate that this student really is trans-gender just because he claims to be. But it does say he has harassed girls in the bathroom.

Wendy said what hot-blooded high school boy wouldn't want to say he's a transgender? You get to go into the girls bathroom (and locker room?) . She is correct.
Mike respectfully responded Thankfully, this is not what is happening. Someone else thought the student was "having a blast playing the system. When he starts the statement with Thankfully and follows it with I'm not arguing against your concerns, I do want to point out though that this is not simply a case of a boy making a statement of being transgendered to get a look at girls., he is communicating that he is understanding every ones concern, but that he has more knowledge about these incidents. Naturally I am curious about it.

The inmates are running the asylum. America's schools have gone from teaching fundamentals to pushing insanity on schoolchildren.

There's no such thing as transgender and that's the OBJECTIVE truth. Homosexuality isn't wrong because of it's being a "bad experience", it's wrong because of it's being in violation of God's moral law. People who do this, are doing it because they are PERVERTS. People are already getting bogged down with why he's doing it and putting a twist on it and therein lies the trap. It DOESN'T MATTER why he's doing it, it matters that he is simply doing it.

The statement of "hot-blooded boys" conjures up images of the typical male, dressed in typical male clothing, being allowed to make a simple statement of , "I'm transgendered." From there, they are free to walk in to a girls restroom to see what they would like to see. That is not happening because the details have not been reported as such.

This morning I read the local Colorado blog for this district. I listened to an audio interview, I read The PJI website, I saw a follow up letter PJI had sent to district lawyers, I read statements by those high school students both for and against. None of them talk of the typical male in the typical clothes deciding one day to "have a blast playing the system." They speak of a student who wants to be a girl - even the ones who dislike what the student is doing refer to the student as "she"

(Again I was not looking to debate if that student is right or wrong in their gender identity issues. But I do want to say that this individual needs our prayers. They are having issues with their gender identity. And they are not the typical hot-blooded male seeking kicks) Just as important, the students, families, and district personnel need our prayers.

On a separate note, I mistakenly thought the student was picking fights with the biological girls. I thought those girls were being ridiculed by the student. I was also worried the student was physically harming the girls. Thankfully, my confusion was cleared up by the PJI. They clarified that by harassment, they meant the physical presence of the biological male in the same bathroom. They were not contending that any of my concerns had taken place.
