Transgender kiddies in Alberta

From Wayne J. Ottenbreit in NDP Alberta at MercatorNet:

As the governing party was changing, media attention found a cause célèbre in the provincial capital. The family of a seven year old boy-identifying-as-a-girl filed a complaint with the Alberta Human Rights Commission that he was denied use of the girls’ washroom at his school. The child was quoted as saying, “When I have to use the everybody washroom it makes me sad.” Bureaucracy and its insidious cousin, fear-of-liability, overtook common sense and the managers of this Catholic school caved to pressures real, perceived, and feared.


Hitting closest to home, a younger daughter confessed to feeling “guilty” because she didn’t want to use the girls’ washroom at her junior high school when one of the boys is in it. In discussing this tremendously valid concern with the principal, my wife was initially told that the best solution might be for our daughter to use the “transgender washroom”. The principal, whether by sincere conviction or sensing a need to be thus convicted, explained that all the students at the school are comfortable with the young man’s assumed identity (though this principal-manager was careful to reference him as “her”). Another daughter, having friends at that same school, informed us that the students are not in fact comfortable, but neither do they feel able to share this openly. More.

Reality check: Never mind that, scientifically, child transgenderism is utterly without foundation. If it can be enforced, that’s science to you! One pities only those who did not vote for it.

Critically, the progressive revolution must go on and on because progressives are at war with reality and there are always new realities to assault. Of course, we could just not vote for it.
