A school's sound judgment sparks "Outrage" from the usual suspects

Sexual orientation and gender identity are innate.
Hate and intolerance, however, are learned behaviors.
Lianne Laurence is another professional orthodox Catholic writing for LifeSiteNews. Monday, Laurence writes: “Kindergarten celebrates 5-year-old transgender ‘transition;’ kids traumatized.” About the only people who are “traumatized” are the folks at LifeSitNews, the hate group Pacific Justice Institute and California Family Council — all of whom jumped at the chance to create victims of the infamous LGBT agenda.

A number of angry parents are considering legal action after a charter school kindergarten teacher staged what one critic calls a transgender “transition ceremony” in class for a five-year-old boy without informing parents beforehand.
These people can call it anything that they like. The truth is that a kid is transitioning from male to female in a kindergarten class. Teachers explained, in age-appropriate terms, what was going on so that the child would not be marginalized and so that other students would not feel uncomfortable. Suffice it to say that no parent wants their kindergartner to be transgender. We can be assured that this is occurring after careful consideration by parents and clinicians.

The school principal explained this in a letter, written in language that even these people might be able to understand.

The Christians would have wanted to opt their kids out in order that they be as ignorant as their moronic parents. They do not get an opt-out. It wasn't sex-ed. They can threaten to sue all day long but it is pointless. In California it is probably less than pointless.
Rocklin Academy Gateway’s kindergarten teacher gave the lesson on transgenderism because a boy in the class is transitioning to a girl, Keller told LifeSiteNews.

During the lesson on the second-to-last day before summer break, the teacher read two books, "I am Jazz" and "The Red Crayon," that purport to explain “transgenderism” to children aged four to eight, Fox40News reported.

"I am Jazz" is particularly explicit, beginning “From the time she was two years old, Jazz knew that she had a girl’s brain in a boy’s body.”

But the “huge bombshell” was that the teacher didn’t just read the books but “essentially put on this more-or-less transition ceremony” for the child, says Keller.

After the teacher introduced the five-year-old student to the class as a boy, he then went into the bathroom and emerged dressed as a girl.

The teacher then reintroduced “her” to the children, explaining “she” was now a “girl” who now had a girl’s name and was to be called that from now on.
I think that's pretty cool if you ask me. The teacher was telling the class that when they returned from summer break Barry would be Barbara (I am making up names) and this is what she will look like — having previously explained why the child was transitioning. And, no, I am Jazz is not at all “explicit.” It seeks to explain gender identity in children's terms and how gender and innate sex can be discordant. Many adults, including me, could never do that successfully.
That left a number of kids “really deeply emotionally bothered and traumatized,” Keller said.

“There were several of the little girls that went to their parents and were crying and saying, ‘mommy or daddy, am I going to turn into a boy?’”

And a boy who hadn’t given “gender” a single thought before is now asking his mother if he can dress as a girl for school, added Keller.

Responding to backlash from parents, principal Jillayne Antoon sent out a letter a week later that did not mention transgenderism, reported Fox40News.
Yeah, sure. After how much prodding by Brad Dacus and his dimwits at Pacific Justice Institute. Even if they were upset, rational parents know how to address these concerns. “No you are not going to turn into a boy. This is something that affects very, very few boys and girls.” And; “No you cannot dress as a girl. Your classmate has a serious condition that you do not have.”

Alternate behavior does not mean that a child has gender dysphoria. Parents in doubt should consult with an expert in the field. A boy who says that he wishes he were a girl is probably in a phase. The dysphoric boy says: I am a girl.

Then we get to the real Christian dysfunction:
Michelle Cretella, president of the American College of Pediatricians, has denounced “institutions that promote transition affirmation” as engaging in “nothing less than institutionalized child abuse” that can inflict “untold psychological damage.”
Suffice it to say that Cretella is not currently a licensed physician. She is not board certified in anything. Cretella has no training nor expertise in gender dysphoria and has never treated a child with gender dysphoria. Her group is a small splinter group (the real one is the American Academy of Pediatrics) and it is designated an anti-LGBT hate group by SPLC. Cretella cannot cite any peer reviewed research to support her claims and she is still an advocate of gay conversion therapy. She is a catechist first and foremost. The Catholic Church's position reflects the whims of an arrogant Pope who lacks the training and experience to make pronouncements about a medical condition.

Perhaps of greater importance is the fact that she can offer no alternatives. If parents listen to this moron — children will die. She is going to kill children with her ignorance on behalf of the Church.

Yet she drones on:
“All children should be told the truth that sex does not ever change and cannot be changed,” Cretella told LifeSiteNews in an email.

“All children should be nurtured to embrace their bodies and the reality of their biological sex. All children should be affirmed as the unique boys or girls their bodies proclaim them to be.”
In other words, gender dysphoria should be ignored and children should be subjected to the pseudo-science of reparative therapy which isn't therapy at all. That is not an alternative. That is child abuse, the kind that leads to excessive suicide rates.
“It’s such an egregious case, we’re trying to figure out what can be done, from the legal perspective, the legislative perspective, or at the very least at the local level,” Keller said.

What happened at Rocklin Academy, he said, is another instance of the “growing effort in Western democracies to try to fracture the relationship between parents and their children, and to make children wards of the state.”
Oh bullshit! That is not remotely credible. What is happening is a change in therapeutic standards backed by research. Rather than trying to repress gender transition clinicians are accepting it. This is proving to be a much better approach and as adults they will be happier and more successful than if they transitioned later in life. There is no sinister conspiratorial agenda.
