School will stop referring to students as “boys” and “girls”

Quote:

The latest news to pop up this week was a pending decision by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System (CMS) to adjust their policies so that teachers and administrators will no longer refer to students as boys or girls.

No… I’m not even kidding. (IJR)
A CMS presentation to principals and counselors recommends kids are not referred to as boys and girls, but instead as scholars and students.

Eliminating boy and girl references is one of several policies included in the CMS bully prevention regulations.

One policy allows students to participate in extracurricular activities and overnight field trips based on their gender identity. A student who identifies as a girl would be allowed to participate in an “all-girl” overnight trip…
The new guidelines also include provisions to ensure that the parents don’t get wise to what’s going on, and the staff can get in trouble if they “out” any transgender students to their families.
Involvement of parents in the plan is determined in working with the student, considering the student’s age and health, wellbeing and safety concerns.

Staff must take care not to “out” a student to others, including the parents of an older student, without the student’s permission. In contacting the parents, use the student’s name/pronoun on birth certificate unless student or parent says otherwise.
It’s easy enough to try to shrug your shoulders or laugh this off as yet another case of Social Justice Warriors running the system off the rails, but there are serious concerns to be dealt with here. As I’ve written repeatedly, what adults do is pretty much up to them if they’re not harming or imposing on the rights of anyone else as far as I’m concerned. But children are a different matter. It’s true that some families have obviously fallen into this trap and are going along with the idea of their offspring impersonating the gender opposite to their chromosomal structure, but unless they involve a doctor and start pumping chemicals into the kids to thwart their physical development there’s not much we can do about it.

NC school will stop referring to students as ?boys? and ?girls? « Hot Air

My kid was in a summer program and it was social justice to the max. They were not to say "guys"

Like "come on guys, it's time to go"

They were instructed to say "ya'all"

The fuck!!!

There is no link. Private schools with education as a priority are the most resistant to political correctness and the SJW flavor of the day.

I croaked like a frog in 8th grade but nobody could catch me except the Geography Teacher who paddled me in front of the whole class, the paddling did not hurt as much as my loss of my self-respect but overcame that indignity.
