I guess they should all go to the same bathroom and shower in gym class together as well?
I would have been all for that in High school..

I'm gay and I even think this is stupid. I don't even like being lumped into the LGBT community. Being gay is not all of who I am, its not my total identity. I don't always agree with what they are pushing.

Teachers separate kids into groups for different reasons.
It was more common when I was in school in the late seventies and early eighties to be grouped together by the first letter of our last names.
That didn't make me feel alone or isolated or divided.
I hear you, I just don't see the issue here. We need to worry about kids learning to read and write and do basic calculations more than pink elephants and purple ponies.
But, on the other hand, there are kids who are not "either/or" ... I can't see why such non-harmful non-intrusive changes would be so ... notable.

Where did I say that allowances can't be made if circumstance require, and allow for it? Don't think I did...ever. That would be hypocritical of me since at points in my life I was a "special needs" child with speech impairments, not major but did require for a while allowances to be made.
I'm just having trouble understanding why, in general, re-labeling (which is a horrible way to put it, I'm going to stop using it...), make that re grouping (which really isn't much better...), anyway... How is that going to help? Perhaps I'm being excessively dense (hush...), but I'm just not seeing it.

Because if you ban the words boy and girl, your kid cannot identify. So your little boy who identifies as a girl ... can't. My boy who identifies as a boy ... can't.
You are effectively trying to remove gender and social engineer identification out of the equation.

The free fall is the result of the gay socialist Marxist agenda perpetuated by the tyrant homosexual muslim Obama. The fires of Hell will rain down upon us when Jesus returns to save those worthy of everlasting glory. Praise be to Lord!

They are pretty well screwed before they get to high school, beezzer.
