    More idiocy and absurdity. Parents should take their children out of these 'woke' schools. It may be a long struggle but nonsense like this will eventually be reversed.

    School Districts Are Hiding Information About Gender-Transitioning Children From Their Parents. This Is Unconstitutional.

    Excerpt:

    American law has long recognized the importance of parental rights. A parent’s right to oversee the care, education, and control of his or her child is guaranteed by the 14th Amendment, and was confirmed by the Supreme Court in 1923, in Meyer v. Nebraska, and as recently as 2000, in Troxel v. Granville.

    To raise and educate a child as parents see fit is—and always has been—on a par with the other fundamental, constitutionally guaranteed rights.

    Worryingly, one school district in Maryland is acting like parental rights are no longer valid.

    In Montgomery County, Maryland, educators are actively keeping information about something as critical as a student’s gender identity preference hidden from parents—an action in direct contravention of legally guaranteed parental rights, and in violation of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.

    In response, two families have sued the Montgomery County Board of Education. The suit aims to enforce their rights to access information about their children’s gender identity, which is generated and retained by Montgomery County schools pursuant to a 2019
    policy.

    This policy enables Montgomery County Board of Education personnel to evaluate minors about sexual matters, allows minors of any age to transition socially to a different gender identity at school without parental notice or consent, and requires personnel to facilitate the transition with the use of the child’s “preferred pronouns.”

    It also permits students to use the restroom that aligns with their “gender identity,” stating that while “some students may feel uncomfortable with a transgender student using the same sex-specific facility,” that “discomfort is not a reason to deny access to the transgender student.

    School administrators and counseling staff members, the policy states, should work with students to “address their discomfort to foster understanding of gender identity and to create a school culture that respects and values all students.”

    Certainly, the parents of students made to share sex-specific spaces with students of the opposite sex would want to know this information. But the Montgomery County Board of Education policy forbids it.

    At least 181 K-12 educators, including four principals, were arrested on child sex-related crimes in the U.S. in the first six months of 2022, ranging from child pornography to raping students.

    Link

    Youngkin took the Virginia governor's election away from McAuliffe in large part because of his reaction to girls being raped in school by an "identifies as" who merely got transferred to another school to do it again after his first rape.

    We have no watchdogs.
    There is no oversight.

    I look at it like this. As the sociopaths in power reveal more of their bizarre agenda and their corruption, more everyday Americans will turn against them. It may not look like it but we are winning and they are scared.

    My favorite Eastwood movie is Hang 'Em High.

    I agree.

    The challenge is that we are just living our lives, and they live to destroy. That puts "normal" at a disadvantage. Relative numbers are irrelevant.

    They set the precedent for that vulgarity when they began hiding pregnancies and abortions from parents, and the government, as well as the courts, allowed for it. It's all a part of tearing down the moral fiber of the nation so that they can build back better although it will only be better for those who desire to rule over us.

    That's true except for mostly honest elections. We can get some of the minor players out that way.

    "They" have the money, the power, the media, the politicians, the doctors, the banks, the military, the corporations, ... ... ...

    so how on earth would the remaining "everyday Americans" win other than when "they" permit it for 'show'.?

    Haven't most 'Americans', whether everyday or not everyday types, given in to do what the 'state' says to do, and at least 50% are relying on the 'state' for their daily bread !? (so they won't oppose the 'state' because it risks losing their food, water, and home; as already happened to millions of actual citizens (not recent immigrants who are given everything they need, legal or illegal).

    I posted a long reply answering your post in detail but I somehow lost it because of some mistake logging in or some other thing that I can't fathom.
    The gist of my reply was that your categorizations, such as 'money', 'power',media', etc. that the common people seemingly don't have control of, are not distortions, exactly, but widely misunderstood, let's say. We might have an idea of who holds power in this world but that idea ain't necessarily true. Total reality is beyond human ken.
    The upshot of my reply to you about the several was this, as simplistic as it sounds - there are more good people than bad and if those good people band together, they can't be beaten. The actions of satan or of God may supersede any human effort, but I know that good will prevail. I don't claim that my opinion here is rational nor documentable, just that I know it to be true in the depth of my heart.

    But what good is it if good people fo not involve themselves with this new age madness? I have lots of opinions but no answers as most of you here know.

    THe answers are from God, and are in Scripture, when God reveals His Word, and to those only to whom He reveals His Word.
    His Word, unchangeable, perfect, forever, says clearly that the wicked far outnumber the good people.
    Just like in the days of Noah, and like in sodom and gomorrah.
    The "good" people, such as they be, won't outnumber the bad until the bad are taken away, when God executes His Just Vengeance and Wrath. Until then, "we all are slaughtered like sheep daily" .

    Arkansas Ban on Gender Transition Treatments for Minors Hits Federal Court
    Reason Magazine
    October 17, 2022

    In 2021, Arkansas passed the Save Adolescents From Experimentation (SAFE) Act. It prohibits doctors from providing "gender transition" care—which includes surgical procedures as well as less invasive options like puberty blockers and hormone treatments—to people under age 18. The ACLU of Arkansas gathered up a group of "doctors," parents and confused kids and successfully challenged this in U.S. District Court, which put a temporary halt to the law. The state appealed to to the 8th Circuit Court and lost: "The 8th Circuit panel agreed transgender children would suffer irreparable harm if the law took effect. The appellate panel also agreed that the law likely discriminated against Arkansans on the basis of sex." [Note the insanity that denying a minor access to genital mutilation would be causing "irreperable harm."]

    The case is now back before the same judge in U.S. District Court, with the trial expected to last throughout this week. Fifteen other states are contemplating similar legislation. I gotta think this will head to SCOTUS.

    Some left wing judges try so hard to be a King. My favorite was that Japanese sucker in Hawaii that tried to block everything any Republice put fourth. He was an Obummer chosen tool.
