Minnesota Department of "Education" issues "transgender toolkit" for schools

at the Washington Free Beacon alerted us to this one:

A crazy-ass organization misleadingly called the "School Safety Technical Assistance Council" has formulated a "transgender toolkit" for public schools in Minnesota, supposedly to "ensure a safe and supportive transition" for children becoming a different gender at school.  Yes, that's a quote from  the organization.

The guidelines--which are to be distributed to Kindergarten through 12th grade public schools and charter schools throughout the state--tell teachers to refrain from call children "boys and girls," and suggest using scholars" instead.  Cuz, you know, using "boys and girls" might hurt the feelings of snowflakes who don't think they're either one, I guess.

The "transgender toolkit" tells teachers that boys who identify as girls must be allowed to use the girls' bathroom, and tells teachers to ask kids what their "preferred pronouns" are. 

That seems a bit...odd, since when you address someone it's pretty much "you."  Seems like gendered pronouns (he, she, his, hers) wouldn't be used when addressing someone, so not sure how this would be an issue, but that's probably because I just don't give a damn.

The Minnesota Department of Education encourages parents to "accept and support their child's gender identity" if they want their child to perform well at school.

The department says no legal documents are needed to change a student's name or gender in school records.  The toolkit states "When students are referred to by the wrong pronoun by peers or school staff, students may feel intimidated, threatened, harassed or bullied." 

Other tips include not picking a homecoming or prom king and queen—instead students should nominate "prom ambassadors," "homecoming court," or "homecoming royalty"--that is, anything that avoids the horrible, awful stigma of implying that there are males and females.  Cuz, you know...

The department explains, "Language around gender is evolving."  Well maybe for the liberal pinheads in power positions in government and its wholly-owned school system.  Not here, thanks.

The toolkit links to several outside resources, including a "Student Gender Transition Plan," where a child can fill out his or her "preferred name," gender, and assigned sex at birth.  The form asks what "requests" the student will make, such as a new name, pronouns, or using a different locker room or bathroom.
The plan also includes a schedule for sharing a child's new gender with the school and other parents, and a time for a "parent information night about gender diversity."

The department also references a "Guide for Supporting Transgender Students in K-12," developed by left-wing organizations such as the Human Rights Campaign, the ACLU, the National Education Association, and the National Center for Lesbian Rights.  It advises that students must be allowed to use the restroom of their choice.  And here's where it gets...even wierder:  The MN department suggests that school officials should "segregate" any students who feel uncomfortable when a biological male who identifies as a girl wants to use the girls' locker room.

Cuz if you're new to liberal diktats you might think they mean if some teenage girl is really uncomfortable about some six foot, 250-pound guy using her locker room, the school might let the guy use a transgender-only room or something.

Hahahahaha!  I see you're new to liberal school-dictators.  What they mean is, they advise school administrators to segregate the *biological girl* who raised the concern--taking her out of the locker room.  Here's the quote:

Privacy objections raised by a student in interacting with a transgender or gender nonconforming student may be addressed by segregating the student raising the objection, provided that the action of the school officials does not result in stigmatizing the transgender [or] gender nonconforming student.
You thought I was kidding, eh?  So in case it wasn't crystal clear before, the Minnesota department of stupidity has stated--in writing--that if your daughter feels uncomfortable when a transgender snowflake wants to use the girls' locker room, the schools will side with the snowflake and isolate your daughter.  If someone is to be forced to give way, it's your daughter, not the transgender.

Liberals, crap like this--multiplied a thousand-fold--is why Trump is president.
