An Ohio school board recently informed its teachers via email that they have no obligation to notify the parents if a transgender or transitioning student as young as 11 requests to be called by a different name or pronoun. This policy, understandably, didn’t sit well with parents when it was discovered…and led to a tense school board meeting.
The email, obtained by Parents Defending Education (PDE) and shared exclusively with Fox News Digital, stated in part: "If a student shares with a teacher what preferred name they would like to be called, and the student does not want it changed in IC or Google, there really is no need to go any further. That teacher can just use those preferred pronouns/name with the student and there is no need to share the info with any other staff member or family member unless the student would like additional support with this throughout the year.”
Really? If someone’s son or daughter decides to switch genders, it’s no big deal? So what if the parents are paying the teachers’ salaries through taxation, levies, referendums or even tuition? I mean, it’s really no big whoop if your daughter wants to become your son or vice-versa, right? Or if your offspring decides to identify as non-binary. Or as asexual or pansexual. Or as a Norwegian Elkhound, for that matter. Go with the flow! Love is love! I mean, it’s not like they’re refusing to wear a mask or sporting a “MAGA” hat. They may just want to switch sexes, so relax!
Honestly, I don’t think this policy goes far enough. I think schools should be able to totally facilitate students’ hormone therapy and sex-change operations without having to notify their buttinski-prone parents. Wouldn’t that make for some interesting parent-teacher conferences?!
Teacher: “Hello. You must be Ms. Johnson. What are your pronouns?”
Parent: “What? Oh, ummm…she/hers, I guess. What did little Johnny do today?”
Teacher: “Well, Johnny is now Jenny. We swapped out his little penis for a vagina and some tiny titties today. Isn’t that exciting? They’s pronouns are they/them, so they is non-binary, but they wanted to make the genital change…so we went ahead and saw to it. They is resting comfortably in the hospital. Should be back at school in just a couple days.”
Parent (sputtering): “W-w-what?! I was never informed of any of this!!”
Teacher: “Oh, you would have like to have known? That’s weird…and against our policy. Sorry.”
