Re: “Gender Blender

ferret lady --- I do not disagree with this. If you can be born with both sets of genitals, of course you can be born transgender. We are swimming in toxic chemicals as people and as babies and those same chemicals are hormone disruptors. There was a 17 year old I read about that had testicles up inside of her, and she was a girl. Of course, this is reality. But not being able to wear pants as a cheerleader is NOT discrimination.

IF this young person had been treated badly I would be one of the first to jump up and down and chastise the school --- one of the first. I am all about underdogs, but THIS is nothing more than an emotional young person picking a fight over nothing.

Re: “Gender Blender

This is not a case of discrimination. There were 3-4 gay students on the cheerleading sqaud and ONE cheerleader asked to be different and was turned down. This is NOT discrimination, this is how it works folks. As a woman I can't be a top level bullrider, that's not discrimination, that's just life. As far as the name change, really? Big ever loving deal. How many kids have a step-dad's name and a legal name. How many kids would like to be called something else? A lot. Wow.

If the school had let her stay as she was hiding under a table and she did hurt herself or someone else they'd have been sued. Sorry, but I was one of the parents last year watching her, talking to her briefly, and listening to the other kids about her and they were kind words said about her. I was told AS A PARENT, "yes, she is different, but she's also very cool and we like her." I was even told to call her Nico by the kids. She didn't need this on school docs to be who she was, she wants the attention and now she's getting it.

She was never mistreated at that school that I am aware of.

She was never mistreated at that school and I really do not appreciate the bad publicity as if we are some sort of heathen rednecks.
