More idiocy from Airstrip One
I'm sure I'll incur once again, the righteous indignation and wrath of my good friend Jenn Burleton over at TransFusion but, incurring indignation and wrath is what I do here. That said, this is about the stupidest thing I've ever heard....
Schools which force girls to wear skirts may be breaking the law - because the policy apparently discriminates against transsexuals.
Official guidance from the Equality and Human Rights Commission says the dress code may breach the rights of girls who feel compelled to live as boys.
Well, TG/TS community....tell us what is palatable for a six year-old tranny to wear? Skirts are for girls and pants are for boys so what's left...burlap potato sacks? Next they'll be demanding that schools provide a TG/TS bathroom because they're uncomfortable in regular bathrooms. Oh wait, they already do that.
What is the world coming to when every custom, tradition, and convention of civil society is on the chopping block to appease the tiny minority that feel oppressed by them. They aren't actually oppressed by anybody, they just feel oppressed and want some attention from us serious folks. When a society abandons it's own culture to the whim of deviants, real or imagined, what is left to define it as a society?
