A newspaper in Asheville has written a glowing report about a transgender kindergartner in Asheville. The boy, who identifies as a girl, and his parents are seeking special treatment for him, although denying reality only confuses and emotionally damages the other children in the school. This is a blatant attempt to gloss over the problems created by denying reality in a classroom of kindergarteners.
From the USA Today:
A chart hangs in a hallway between the bedrooms of a sister and her two brothers. Their parents – as many parents do – have etched lines marking the height of each child over the years.
The smallest among them is Colton, the third son of Amy and Kevin. The blond-haired, green-eyed baby loved to snuggle, said the child's mother.
Each mark represents a year of memories, she said. As the children reach new heights, they develop their own personalities and transform in ways beyond a parent's control.
By age 6, the name "Colton" had all but disappeared from the chart. It had been replaced by “Emma,” a name the child gave herself as she began to discover her gender identity and her parents decided they would not force her to be someone she is not.
