The father had enough. After hearing from one of his sons that a girl was allowed to use the boys bathroom because she really wants to be a boy, the father and mother chose to keep their children at home and begin homeschooling them to ensure they get a proper education.
According to The Blaze:
The scene of the transgender fracas is Howell, Mich. (pop: 9,489) — about an hour west of Detroit, reports local ABC affiliate WXYZ.
“My son informed me there was a girl in the bathroom with him and the other kids in his class,” the dad, Matt Stewart, told the station.
After the conversation, Stewart and his wife opted to keep their kids home.
“As parents, we decided we were not going to force our children to make the decision between confusion, humiliation, and embarrassment,” Stewart told WXYZ.
School district officials are blaming the Obama administration for its new policy letting girls use boys’ bathrooms — and boys use girls’ bathrooms — whenever they want.
“As has been widely reported, on May 13, 2016, the United States Department of Justice and Department of Education issued significant guidance on the rights of transgender students,” a letter from district officials explains. “This involved the Department’s interpretation of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which is a statute prohibiting sex discrimination in educational programs or activities. Those Departments found that Title IX prohibits discrimination against students based on their transgender status.”
A school district representative said the district sent the letter home to all parents recently.
It’s interesting that school officials don’t realize the absurdity of what they’re asking people to accept as the new normal. What’s surprising is not this father’s decision, but the decision of millions of other parents to keep their children in school despite these bizarre requirements.
