"When A Student Says 'I'm Not A Boy Or A Girl'"

So apparently some schools are now openly brainwashing children--even those in kindergarten--with "trans" ideology. It's astonishing that a theory can go, basically, from being made-up to being imposed upon kindergarteners in about a decade. Even if you're not properly terrified of this particular flavor of insanity, you should be terrified because you don't know what flavor of insanity will come after it. As I've said many times, I personally am of the entirely unremarkable opinion that we ought to push gender on kids less. Some boys aren't going to be particularly masculine, and some girls aren't going to be particularly feminine, and that's just fine. But we basically hopped right over the sane position and went right for the equal and opposite kind of madness.'s not actually equal to and opposite of traditional views about's much, much crazier than them.
  And, look: I'm getting really fed up with hearing people describe themselves as "non-binary." That's not a gender, and it's not a property of people. Gender itself could (annoyingly) be described as "non-binary," given that androgynous could count as a third gender. And people can certainly be androgynous. But people can't be non-binary. Calling a person non-binary is like calling a person a false dichotomy. It's roughly a category mistake.

That last bit sounds like the kind of result which you get if you are a nerd and you have kids.

For example: I explained the terms “true” and “false” to my three year old.

I was subsequently called “Mr. Falsey-Pants” after mistakenly telling them that we had time to play video games when we did not.

“No, YOU’RE a false dichotomy!” strikes me as a similar future probability.
