In the news I read an article that reported a school would not allow a 6 year old boy to use the boys or girls bathroom because, although he was physically a boy, he presented himself and identified as a girl. He was told he would have to use the staff bathroom instead. Previously he was allowed to use the girls bathroom. What a challenging situation. If your child wanted to present themselves to the world as the opposite sex would you let them? Would you limit where they could do this?

Wow, thanks Thundermama! For the child in question though - her mama is wonderful - fighting the battles she's too young to realise there are...she just wants to be able to be who she is, even if no one else thinks she should be.
JThomp42 I have to disagree with you. God made us all with such unique differences. Our differences are used to teach one another acceptance. Accepting someone struggling with gender identity takes compassion, understanding and love. That is GOD
Agree to disagree. God does not make mistakes.
I agree that God doesn't make mistakes but that doesn't mean gender identity issues don't exist. It's just another type of disorder - one that has existed for centuries. Why condemn someone for something they can't help? God wouldn't want that.
Then let them make up their own mind when they are older. To subject a child to the actions that will occur if you allow them to do this is just cruel. They will be bullied to no end, beaten up, etc. Children can be so cruel. Adults also (Teachers)
JThomp - that is why you fight for your children. And why parents should teach tolerance and acceptance if difference. Then we could conquer the bullies. Instead of teaching hatred and intolerance.
