Massachusetts Boys Legally Allowed in Girls Restroom?

Massachusetts Boys Legally Allowed in Girls Restroom?

Today I’d like to open up a discussion topic very near and dear to my heart; political correctness. I read an article about the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) ordering K-12 public schools to allow transgender students the use of locker rooms, bathrooms, and changing facilities of the opposite sex. of certain language in the document, as long as a boy tells school officials he identifies as a girl, they must essentially bend over backwards to ensure he is treated as such.

Furthermore, if another student expresses outward discomfort—perhaps in the form of a high school girl being offended at having an anatomical male in the locker room—it is considered discrimination and is punishable according to the DESE’s “anti-bullying” policies.

Does anyone see anything wrong with this picture?

I’m all for tolerance in certain cases. Let the students identify as the opposite sex. I don’t care. But at some point, a line has to be drawn. For me, that line is drawn when my children’s safety and innocence is in jeopardy.

I have a little girl on the school basketball team. If I found that my daughter had been benched due to a boy who “felt like a girl” joining the team, I would be rather perturbed.

What’s worse is the DESE was aware that “parents and students would likely have concerns, but they dismissed such feelings as invalid” (Anderson, 2013). My question is: Who the hell is the DESE to decide whose feelings are legitimate and whose are not?

The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is moving full force toward a world cursed by a disease called political correctness.

I am so dedicated to showcasing the flawed nature behind the politically correct mindset that I have been working on an adult-oriented children’s book series titled The Politically Correct Adventures of Jesse Thynskin. If you are interested in reading a completed manuscript, please shoot me an email requesting a copy to I would appreciate any comments and feedback.

Let all your friends know what is going on. Please don’t forget to share/like this article.

I heard this on the radio today and just lost it. Do you know how many boys will start saying they "feel like a girl" just to see if that can catch a peep? Pure stupidity!

I am all about being nice and considering other peoples feelings and such, but political correctness has gone way to far and we are raising a bunch of pansies.

I heard on the news today that a school district ,somewhere, has started sending home notices letting parents know their child's body mass index, weight, and whether or not they are considered too skiny, over weight, obese, or "just right".

This country we live in today scares the hell out of me. I wish it was still the way it used to be. You know back when we used to argue over which power ranger we wanted to be.
