One state has gone totally off the deep end – wants to allow students to choose their gender, name, pronouns and bathrooms – without input from parents or doctor.
The Michigan Board of Education has quietly drafted up a new proposal for all schools in their state that has appalled parents and conservative lawmakers. The students can choose their gender and how they want to be addressed at school, all without the parents’ knowledge or consent – but the guidelines clearly state that when the school contacts the parent or guardian, they should use the student’s LEGAL name and “corresponding pronoun” assigned at birth.
The board’s new policy states that “students should be allowed to the restroom in accordance with their gender identity.”
Yes, locker rooms are covered too: “A student should not be required to use a locker room that is incongruent with their gender identity,” the guidance states. “Locker room usage should be determined on a case-by-case basis, using the guiding principles of safety and honoring the student’s gender identity and expression.”
Students who are bothered by having members of the opposite sex in their locker rooms can request “an adjusted changing schedule” or “use of a private area in the facility.”

They’re calling it a “bounty” on transgender students. [/pullquote]
