To be a she or not to be a she.....


There is a school district near me that has a teacher that is having a sex change. He teaches high school. He wants to become a she. My questions to you is this:

1. Would you have an issue with this?

2. Would you want your child being taught by this teacher?

3. Would you want this teacher fired or would you want him to stay on.

Now, I am all for people that want to have a sex change. I say do what you want to do. I also know that there are laws that will protect his rights. I personally would probably have an issue with my child being in this class though.

I know I am contradicting myself here but this is why. My kids would be distracted, I think. I dont want my kids exposed to that yet. They will learn soon enough about things like that when they get into the real world. I just think it is too soon in school.

I also think that the teacher is not thinking of the kids, the other teachers, the principal etc. He is putting a lot on them with his decision.

I could go on but I ould like to hear your comments first....

I agree. I live in Greece not too far some that same school district and have maixed feelings too. I know some teacher that work in that school and the headache I have heard from them. I think the teacher on his own should think about the kids first and try to determine if his presence woudl be an unneeded distraction. Maybe he should then relocate so that everyone including himselfe/herself can have a afresh start

I agree with you. He does need to re-locate and be able to dress as a woman at a new school. I totally disagree about what he is exposing the kids to, not to mention the staff at that school.

The very first sex change operation ever performed was a M2F on an economics professor.

It will be a distraction if the children know about it... and the people who are most opposed to it will make sure the children find out about it. They believe, among other things, that it will damage the children, and they want this to be true... so thet'll do what they can to make it true.

The issue here is who leaked this information. Certainly this teacher did not go before the board and announce it, so I'd be looking to someone who had access to the teachers' medical records.

I agree they should get rid of the bad teachers and keep the good ones. If he/she is a good teacher they should keep him. I just would not want it to be an issue with my kids. I think the parents should have a say in wanting that teacher teaching there kids or not. If a parent does not want their kids in that class they should be allowed to have say in that. The school district is not allowing the parents that voice. They are forcing the kids to stay in that class and not allowing them to transfer out.

On the other hand they cant put all the kids in another class. The becomes an issue of teaching your kids to accept people and choices that are made.
