Why is it that so many young people today are wondering if they were born in the wrong body?
With popular endorsements coming from the culture, law, and even the medical establishment, the transgender phenomenon has gone from idea to trend. A compassionate and honest approach to such sexual confusion would be to help children bring their feelings into accord with the reality of their bodies, but transgender activists are pushing an agenda that insists the body should be remade to conform with feelings. As such, the transgender trend spreads a confusing message to all kids, including those who suffer from gender dysphoria.
Unfortunately, this trend is taking root in some schools where policies and curriculum are being used to advance these radical ideas. Students as young as kindergarten are being taught that changing sex is as easy as changing clothes, teen girls are discovering that biological boys have free access to their locker rooms, and parents are kept in the dark when their child has decided to identify as transgender during the school day.
Schools that are facing this trend need to hear from the real stakeholders - parents. Parents who are informed about the facts and proactively engage with their school board, administrators, teachers, and other parents in the school community can play an integral role in creating an environment that respects the privacy, safety, and dignity of all students.
Schools are not realms of social experimentation and should never elevate a confusing and unscientific ideology above their responsibility to truthfully educate students about their bodies and the world around them. There are common sense solutions schools can adopt that meet the needs of the entire school community, including those students who struggle to accept their biological sex.
Our Parent Resource Guide includes resources, tips, and talking points that will help parents be better equipped to engage on this important issue.
