A Wisconsin school charges three 8th-graders with sexual harassment

By Andrea Widburg 

The Kiel Area School District (KASD), a small district in Wisconsin, made national news on Friday for a very bad reason: the middle school filed a Title IX sexual harassment claim against three eighth-graders for the "crime" of refusing to use the "they/them" pronouns that one of their classmates demanded.*

Before going farther, let me make my position clear: there have always been people who wished they were members of the opposite sex.  The more extreme ones claimed that they were, in fact, members of the opposite sex.  Up until recently, it was understood that people in this second category were mentally ill with a syndrome called "body dysphoria."  Another form of this mental illness is anorexia, which sees a healthy person insist that she is morbidly obese.  We do not put people with anorexia on diets.

Unfortunately, because the lunatics have taken over the asylum, we now have a societal insistence that we accept as true that people with body dysphoria tied to their sexual identity are correct rather than mentally ill.  There's no evidence that this is true.  

However, a massive, money-sucking, power-hungry industry has grown up around so-called transgenderism, with schools, clinics, hospitals, therapists, surgeons and of course Planned Parenthood, dedicated to convincing children that flights of fantasy or longings or the normal discomfort of puberty mean they were born in the wrong body — and then assuring them that they can remedy this situation through hormones, surgery, and forcing people to recognize their imaginary "gender" by honoring "their pronouns."...............

The only quibble I have with the letter is that it fails to identify by name the music teacher who started this whole process.  Everyone involved in leftist bullying needs to be named and sued.........For reasons that are not entirely clear, the elementary school principal, Chad Ramminger, was the moving force behind this initiative.  He boasts in the "principal's message" that "we are first and foremost about kids."........To Read More....
