Gender Questionable. . .
However dangerous or antiquated it may seem to presume that the sex of a child is determined by anatomy and to raise that child within some traditional but actually rather loose ideas of what it means to be a boy or a girl, the opposite is even more dangerous. Children are not ours to experiment upon nor does our care of those children entrusted to us allow us to treat them as ingredients in some trendy social experiment. The separation of gender and anatomy is new, so new, in fact, that we are making it all up as we go along. The so-called experts who raise questions for parents and suggest that they are actually abusing their children by raising them as boys and girls are presuming facts that are not established and are, indeed, in question. These same experts would advocate administering hormones to prevent puberty from its natural conclusion reveal that they have less the interests of the children at heart than they do advancing their own controversial agenda. Adults are free by statute to pursue their weird and perverse ideas as long as they don't hurt others. I may not like that but that is, after all, the law. But when those same adults pursue such things for children, they hurt some of the most vulnerable among us and cause earnest parents needless angst about basic and natural and common sense things.
