The Toronto District School Board [last] week issued a set of guidelines on how schools should accommodate transgendered students…

On the issue of washrooms, the guidelines note that all students have the right to use a bathroom that “best corresponds to the student’s gender identity, regardless of the student’s sex assigned at birth.” Requiring a student to “prove” their gender through a doctor’s letter or identity documents is unacceptable, the board says.

Further, “students who wish to use pronouns other than the masculine or the feminine (such as ‘zhe’ and ‘hir’) need to be accommodated equally,” the guidelines note.

This is the same school board whose website recently featured links to sites encouraging children to have sex with vegetables.

Also, other new terms will arise; “Get hirm” or “Kick zhe’s ass”

What if the bo....Oops!...I mean the zhes...want to go into the gir...Oops again!...I mean the hirs'...johnny to spy on them?

Is that okay?

That would have been fun when I was a little zhe just going through adolescence, but then it would have been considered unacceptable behavior. I suppose today it would be encouraged.

Say...why have seperate bathroom facilities nowadays anyway? Aren't the zhes and the hirs encouraged to cohabitate? And express their sexuality as they see fit?

Why “zhe” and “hir” when we already have an existing non-gender specific objective personal pronoun: “it.”

LOL at Progressives trying to increase diversity by increasing the number of “boxes” to put people in......

Someone better not mention that they should start having seprate water fountains for all the special categories because it is unfair for the special people to have to wait in the normal people’s line... Because the dullard idiot dims may think that is a great idea....

regardless of the student’s sex assigned at birth.”

If more people homeschooled this would not be an issue...

If you have a kid that had shall we say “gender issues” when they were born (ie. parts halfway), homeschooling would be a good option for them until they figured things out or their parents figured them out.

The English language already contains a gender-neutral pronoun.

It.

an existing non-gender specific objective personal pronoun: “it.”

Or a combination of the three existing personal pronouns (and I'll try to spell this without getting banned): "Shheeit."

Sorry...

It's frightening to consider what is the next step/natural law to break for these demonically possessed fiends. Eating people alive is the only thing I can think of that they haven't pushed yet.

How.....Orwellian.

"'It's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words. Of course the great wastage is in the verbs and adjectives, but there are hundreds of nouns that can be got rid of as well. It isn't only the synonyms; there are also the antonyms. After all, what justification is there for a word which is simply the opposite of some other word? A word contains its opposite in itself. Take 'good', for instance. If you have a word like 'good', what need is there for a word like 'bad'? 'Ungood' will do just as well -- better, because it's an exact opposite, which the other is not. Or again, if you want a stronger version of 'good', what sense is there in having a whole string of vague useless words like 'excellent" and 'splendid' and all the rest of them? "Plusgood" covers the meaning, or 'doubleplusgood' if you want something stronger still. Of course we use those forms already. but in the final version of Newspeak there'll be nothing else. In the end the whole notion of goodness and badness will be covered by only six words -- in reality, only one word. Don't you see the beauty of that, Winston? It was B.B.'s idea originally, of course,' he added as an afterthought."

George Orwell, 1984

I know, I know....I'm a conspiracy theorist. Nothing to see here.....Move along....
