If we want to be totally honest, there are two over-arching questions we all need to ask about our attitude to the transgender issue:
1. Are we considering all the facts?
2. What is our motivation? Do we want what is best for the young person? Or are we unthinkingly accepting the transgender ideology?
Q. Should children be taught that they can choose their gender identity” (whether they are male or female or some variation on a gender spectrum)?
Fact: Such teaching is very confusing for young children. Five- and six-year-olds are coming home from a Kindergarten in Minnesota with questions like “How does a boy become a girl when they’re born with a penis?” and statements like “Mom, I think you can choose if you want to be a boy or a girl.”
• Only one side of the issue is being presented in the school context. This school organized an information session with a pro-transgender speaker but refused to associate itself with an informational session organized by parents who objected to the use in class of My Princess Boy, a story about a young boy who liked to wear dresses.
