A minority of the commenters, like former teacher Melody Bolduc whose filed to run for school board, said transgender students should be accommodated on a case-by-case basis only. She’s afraid boys who aren’t transgender will enter girls’ bathrooms.
“I don’t know who here, out of all the men in this audience are willing to say, ‘You know what, I would have done some crazy things as a teenage boy.’ I am a teacher. I have studied a great deal of adolescent psychology,” she said.
Oy vey that’s a lot to unpack there. First I think the amount of men who would either admit to or were deviants when they were teenagers isn’t as great as Mrs. Bouldc thinks. Also if she would have studied the policy as much as she says she studied children she should know that some kid can’t just show up one day and go, hmm I think I am a girl now.
Instead it sounds to me like she has studied a great deal of right wing fear mongering and not adolescent psychology.
Where were her complaints about the policy for the last 8 years? The answer is along with Jason Fischers they were nowhere because trans kids using the bath room they identify with wasn’t a problem until those on the right decided to make it a problem.
Mrs. Bolduc is either ignorant or pandering to the bigoted and ignorant and the district 7 race is to important to consider somebody who would do either.
We do have serious problems in the district, this however is not one of them.
