Kindergartners Expelled for Misgendering?
Fairfax County, VA, is set to approve rules that would punish children as young as kindergarteners for “malicious misgendering.” We must continue to pray for our vulnerable children.
From American Thinker. When last we heard from Fairfax County, parents were trying to get the school board to prohibit books with pornographic sexual descriptions (a criminal act in Virginia). Now parents have something new to worry about: on May 25, the school board plans to approve a set of rules that will make it a Level 4 offense — right up there with assault, battery, and arson — for children in grades K–12 who “malicious[ly] misgender” or commit an “outing related to gender identification.” Aside from being a gross violation of children’s First Amendment rights, this is also a form of inquisition, seeking out and punishing heretics who violate the tenets of the church of transgenderism….
When I say make-believe, I’m not exaggerating. As best as I can tell, there is no literature saying that transgenderism is real — that is, there is nothing showing that men and women are born in the wrong bodies…
But none of that is stopping the activists in Fairfax County. If they have their way, beginning in kindergarten, it will be a serious punishable offense involving “relationship behaviors,” if children are caught “[u]sing slurs based upon the actual or perceived gender identity (which includes, but is not limited to, malicious deadnaming or malicious misgendering).”
Who decides what’s “malicious”? Who knows? As often as not, it’s probably one of those deeply disturbed, narcissistic teachers who show up on Libs of TikTok. These are the folks who believe that the classroom is their personal forum for expression and that their primary job as a teacher is to make sure that their students understand their deviant sexuality…

Just as a school cannot force a child to profess a faith or a specific doctrine within a faith, so too should a school be barred from forcing a child to accept the existence and tenets of the Church of Transgenderism. No child should be required to mangle logic and grammar to satisfy the narcissistic need of another child or teacher to have his sexual delusions honored.
If a child is manifestly bullying another child (and we all have the common sense to recognize that), all schools have consequences for that, including teaching a mentally healthy child to be kind and compassionate to one who is mentally ill. But to claim that a child must be forced to lie to remain in school is unconstitutional, un-American, and dangerous.
