True. But if I had a boy who consistently dressed as a girl and who was being teased, bullied, and shunned by his schoolmates for acting like a girl,
I would want to offer him the option of going to this camp for the weekend to see how he liked it. If he didn't, we could leave any moment he decided
and he wouldn't go again. But if he LOVED it and wanted to go again and again, I would know that I probably had a gender non-conformant son and I
would let him be who he wanted to be.
The article says "it is unknown if the kids at the camp will eventually identify as gay or transgender"
Exactly. Why not let them explore what they seem to want? There's nothing wrong with it. If, like so many boys who wore dresses as a kid "just for
fun" on occasion, there's nothing to lose. But if the child IS gender non-conformant, this camp provides a welcome respite from the cruel and harsh
judgments of other people.
This camp isn't going to make anyone gay or LIKE dressing as a girl if they don't want to. It's not hurting anyone.
