We are clearly in agreement that this is bull#.
Solution: Any new source that propagates this, boycott.
Any other solutions?

It appears that the messenger went to Fox news and embellished...as in MADE UP certain facts that don't exist. Fox news did not fact check. Not a surprise. Title IX requires the non discrimination. That is federal law, if you don't like it, you may have to homeschool or leave the country.

I just pasted the title of this thread and got 243,000 links. I had a great link picked from a well known Libertarian, but then I realized what your are doing.....
You are attacking the messenger and not addressing the message, I am not going to play that game
I don't want my values being forced onto children, and I don't want yours instilled onto them either.....that responsibility should be reserved for Parents and schools should stick to the 3 R's

Is this an April fools joke?
Why is all this transgender stuff being promoted ?
Whats the real agenda?
Those of us knowing who we are,are abnormal now. It's not fair. All because those not knowing who they were whined about it to make it fair for them. So we're the assholes here. Not right.
What's next, being arrested for having female genitalia and wearing a dress? But officer I was "born this way", I am in fact a girl but I don't have birth certificate to prove it because putting the gender on them was outlawed 10 years ago in 2020.

a reply to: spirit_horse OP: I am starting to wish that people did a little more digging before posting something that was fairly easy to figure out that the original article's source made things up. I would think that article sounded a little over the top. I would have looked up the source. I would see it notes some dubious organizations. I would have looked at what the school district has actually done. Wait....I did. Had to after reading this post.

No. This whole 100% male or female thing isn't being understood correctly. Nobody is saying that you aren't one or the other; there's simply more to it than that.
Think about it in terms of handedness (another recent thread gave me the idea). Let's say you write with your right hand and that's what hand you say you are. But you probably do a number of things with the other while the person next to you might mix it up more or less than you do. But you are both right-handed. Understanding that you aren't 100% right-handed doesn't mean you aren't right-handed.
Hormones and your brain make up your gender in far more significant ways than genitalia (but let's call it equal to be fair). Some men have more testosterone than others and more estrogen than others. We all have male and female hormones coursing through us just like we all use both of our hands for something. It won't make you a different gender against your will.
