A school in Colorado has been very accommodating to an 8-year-old student who was born as a male but identifies as a female. The child will begin attending class as a girl and the school has provided information about the switch to the students and families of the students to promote tolerance, as well as providing unisex bathrooms.
Some parents in the above video say that it is a difficult concept to try to explain to their children, classmates of the transgendered child. I wonder if it actually will be that difficult. I think kids of that age are prone to accepting things that older generations might not understand. If someone told me at age 8 that my classmate who was a boy would now be a girl I think I would just say “Yeah whatever, that hussy had better bring a good present to my birthday party.”
Oh who am I kidding? I didn’t have any friends when I was 8. Nothing changes, hey guys?
Anyway, good for the school! And watch the interviewer struggle to remain objective in the video above.
