Monday's HOT MIC
This is just mind boggling.
A transgender day camp for kids ages four through twelve in California is boasting triple enrollment since its founding three years ago, reported the Associated Press.
The pre-schoolers and elementary school kids who attend the “Rainbow Day Camp” start each morning by choosing which pronoun they want to use for the day, according to the AP. Campers can choose, “he”, “she”, a combo of “he/she”, “they”, or opt to write undecided or nothing at all.
The San Francisco Bay Area camp has made it its mission to cater to “gender fluid” and transgender children. Founded in 2014, the camp is currently the only one to offer a transgender program of sorts to such young children. The camp has about 60 attendees, up from 20 in its first summer.
“A decade ago, this camp wouldn’t have existed. Eventually, I do believe, it won’t be so innovative,” the camp’s founder Sandra Collins told the AP. “I didn’t know you could be transgender at a very young age. But my daughter knew for sure at 2,” she said, crediting her daughter as inspiration for starting the camp. Collins has also founded “Camp Kickin’ It” for transgender kids ages 13-17.
If an adult wants to claim their gender is something different that what their biology says, that's none of our business -- unless they demand "rights" that don't exist and government protection from ridicule. Then it very much becomes our business and the business of the taxpayer.
But, pray tell, how can a 2 year old "know for sure" that she was transgender? Madness. Obviously, the parents led the toddler to her belief that she was not a little girl. How can that not be child abuse?
This entire "gender fluidity" thing is getting out of hand. The gender activists and their allies in the media and academia are pushing, pushing, and pushing against common sense and the culture.
At age 63, I probably won't live to see the day when it will be a crime if you use the wrong pronoun for someone. But that's where we're headed. "You will be made to care" - even about irrational issues like being able to choose your gender at will.
