Look, if you have a penis you should go to the boys' or men's room, not to the girls' or ladies' room. That is Kathy Svenson's message and one I wholeheartedly agree with.
I take offense at school board president Pete Blair's spin about castrating a 10-year-old. Is a 10-year-old prepuberty kid even able to make a gender change/identity decision?
Pete's statement was designed to confuse the issue. Kathy is not in favor of castrating 10-year-olds. Even in middle school we have a "boys'" room and a "girls'" room for common sense reasons. Political correctness has run amok on the Delta County School Board. Hang in there Kathy, you are doing a wonderful job.
You can home school to get your kid out of this politically correct, amoral-poor system which may not reflect your values. With the development of the Internet, it isn't as hard as you might think. All it requires is a broadband connection and a $250 computer if you don't have one. There are some really excellent systems out there such as www.khanacademy.org, which is totally free, offers Colorado Academic Standards (common core) compliant instruction, instant remedial help and even a report to the coach (you) on areas your kid might be having problems. It is individual self pacing (no grade barriers). You can fill in American history and the reason Englishmen fled the tyranny of the king who was the only one allowed to own property, which is not part of common core, with books like "Rush Revere and the Pilgrims" and "Good to be King" by Michael Bednarik. If you have a WiFi router ($50) you can join with other home schoolers that share your values and even churches and retiree volunteers to make it easy. You don't have to put up with this.
