    Please no flaming. If you are in NYC and are the parent of a trans ID'ing teen or tween, yet you are not affirming and are skeptical of the movement in general. If you are worried about the medicalization of children and/or your child's school gender-studies curriculum, I am interested in speaking with you.

            tbh it led me to look into the subject elsewhere although I know 0 trans people including transgender children...but these issues are coming up in the high school where my dc are zoned. a lot of things I have read are interesting, baffling, and have made me think a lot. anyway I am just warning you this is not a friendly place to question anything relating to trans activism

                Plenty of parents whose kids are not trans ID'ing are worried to. 1 million parents in Peru just marched to turn back a transgender curriculum in the schools. People are concerned--with good reason.

              I am schooled in the Orwellian trans discourse. I know a lot about the subject; I am living it. I am a new poster here. If parents are skeptical (and a lot of doctors, teachers and parents secretly are but are afraid), they need a voice. I am raising my conscience at my kid's school b/c we have had three trans speakers in the course of 1 year. No radical feminists. No one training the teachers on race. This is the "woke" subject du jour. Anyone who questions this theory is called a transphobe--but there is too much at stake for my kid and others'. I won't be silenced. If anyone wants to join in common cause, please write to me here or privately. Our numbers are growing nationally and in the UK. Thanks!

    sit next to her at lunch and bribing girls w/ candy and an invite to her bday party if they refuse to walk home w/ dd. There are five other fourth grade girls in our immediate neighborhood and I asked these other moms if their dds had said anything and their dds all confirmed it and this one girl is just being super mean to dd. What would you tell your dd when she is sobbing that she doesn't want to go to school tomorrow? And, this is all new tome - came pouring out of dd this morning - I checked w/ other moms - and learned this has been going on two weeks.
