In case there is any question of just how mentally ill our teachers and education administrators have become, the answer just came flying out of Michigan.
If you can believe this, the state board of education has just passed down “guidance” that would put all decision making of name, sex, pronouns, and bathroom choice in the hands of the child.
So, the wisdom of a child with a brain operating at about 10% of its adult operating capacity, can now make decisions that will adversely affect him, her or it for the rest of his/her/its life. Not only that, it will have a large effect on classmates, teachers and family members.
Shockingly, the College of Pediatricians has publicly come out against this concept, stating quite strongly, “A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking. When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such. These children suffer from gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria (GD), formerly listed as Gender Identity Disorder (GID), is a recognized mental disorder in the most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-V).5 The psychodynamic and social learning theories of GD/GID have never been disproved.2,4,5”
Even the pediatricians, who are also a very liberal group, have come out with cautionary words for those who have far too much of our children’s future in their hands. The leftist lunacy of embracing mental illness and mainstreaming it is having an incredibly disruptive effect on our country and needs to stop.
