Infant School in the UK for Transgendered Kids

This is sad:

‘The school appreciates that a boy may prefer to be known as a girl and have a girl’s name and similarly a girl may have a girl’s name but wants to dress as and be a boy,’ an Ofsted report said.

The unnamed school, where a quarter of pupils in reception class have same-sex parents or close family members in same-sex relationships, also acts as a hub for transgender pupils at other schools, hosting them at after-school clubs.

What I find sad is the obvious self-rejection in transgenderism.

If you're a boy, you should accept that you are a boy.

If you are a girl, you should accept that you are a girl.

If you are a girl and want to be a boy, or vice-versa, that suggests that you do not accept who you are.

You want to be something else.

And someone else.

And even if there will always be boys who are sensitive and girls who like to play sports, what I find dumb about one of the schools is that they let a boy wear a tutu all day.

Run-of-the-mill girls do not wear tutus all day in school.

On top of messing with their heads about gender, these schools are poorly socializing their pupils. What parent wants their kid to ignore the basic social conventions? These are part of one's education as well.
