Elementary mom furious over cross-dressing ‘Transgender Day’

With the reelection of Barack Obama, the most liberal U.S. president in history, there’s little argument that the far-left is as emboldened as ever in pushing its agenda on the country.

Inevitably, this chutzpah will be their downfall.

Case in point is the Tippecanoe School for the Arts and Humanities in Milwaukee, which dubbed Friday “Switch It Up Day” – a time for students to come dressed as members of the opposite sex, according to EAGnews.

That’s right, little boys coming to school dressed as little girls and vice versa.

Deidri Hernandez, a parent of a 7 year old student at the school, said it was originally billed as “Gender Bender Day,” but school officials made the name change after she called and complained.

“I didn’t have a problem with the title. I had a problem with the activity taking place,” Hernandez says.

According to Hernandez, when she called called Principal Jeffrey Krupar with her concerns, she was told the day was chosen by the school’s student council and is only meant to be fun — students are pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.

“They might as well call it ‘Transgender Day,’” Hernandez says.

In truth, is that not what this is all about? Is it not an example of school officials finding creative ways to bring this behavior into the norm?

Tony Tagliavia, a spokesman for Milwaukee Public Schools, told EAGnews that “this is an idea created by students as one in a series of school spirit days” and participation is not mandatory.

Hernandez kept her child home and she knows of at least one other parent who did the same.

To summarize, we are to believe that the students came up with this idea on their own, to include the original name of “Gender Bender Day,” without any nudging, and that school officials readily agreed that it was a “fun” idea?

Or have public schools truly become indoctrination centers that exist solely to shape the “progressive” values of the far-left upon our impressionable young children.

    parents need to research/reconsider the curriculum and activities of their kids' public school. It appears that John Dewey's socialism has reached some work-ability now-days.

    • karen nilsson

      we called it opposite day! Was no problem!

      • Amie

        Remember, with Obama president, everything is a liberal conspiracy.

      • Anne

        Really? What do you have boys or girls? What types of activities transpired during the course of the day? What was the EDUCATIONAL value of the day?

      • http://facebook Mary Liz Danuser

        Amie,

        Call it what you must

        ,but if your children are in public schools……………………………..pull them immediately out.

        Teachers will indoctrinate

        the younger generations ideas/thoughts.Liz

        Karen Nilsson, you have a SICK MIND. This is FRICKIN' DISGUSTING.

      • Eyeswideopen

        This is soooo wrong I think my head is going to explode. My kid would be going to school dressed the same as any other day and if anybody had a problem with that than he would not ever be going back. Why in hells name would you want to mess with a child's mind like that.

  • Diane

    What is wrong with the teachers and the principals saying no this is not something that is necessary. What does it have to do with school spirit? There are other ways to have fun and show school spirit. Totally inappropriate. That is another thing that is wrong, everything has become acceptable when it is not.

    • Anne

      There is nothing wrong with them saying no. This is an act of desperation on the gay community.

      • Sam Page

        There used to be a saying in America, back in the era of John Wayne, etc., when we would say, "you've just crossed the line," or "He just crossed the line."

        Today, the simple fact is:

        There is no longer any 'line' to cross.

        There are no lines of morality with these people –– absolutely none. No boundaries, no conduct of ours (theirs) could ever promote feelings of being ashamed. The very concept of shame is unknown to them.

        Do you think we're 'grieving' The Holy Spirit?

        I believe we are.

      • Eyeswideopen

        Exactly, there is a very twisted individual in charge in that school that is trying to mess with your kids heads, and that person needs to be removed from ever working with children again…

  • http://veryinkyfingers.blogspot.com/ Mary Gray Whitcomb

    As the principal I would have been concerned that this was the students way of mocking transgendered people. I home-schooled. I suggest more people do it! Children will get enough indoctrination when they hit college. Try to fill their minds with as much truth as possible while they are young.

  • Sweetbrandigirl2004

    I'd like to say I think you people are way over reacting. First dressing up as the opposite sex one day doesn't make someone transgender or transsexual. Being diagnosed as a transsexual is a medical condition and has NOTHING to do with what clothes someone wears that is dictated by society. nor is it going to make anyone want to be the opposite gender. It's more of a dress up day like halloween is and it just may help your child be a more considerate and understanding of what its like to be the opposite sex and make them better adults. For the only way we can fully understand what someone else goes through is to walk in their shoes wouldn't you agree ?…….So chill out there little kids and to them it's just dress up play and nothing more, it's you adults that are freaking out and acting all stupid and over reacting.

    • dave

      being diagnosed as a pedifile is a medical condition and should be treated the same as transsexual/homosexual. wouldnt you agree? Adult sex with kids will be the norm soon, also beastiality may come next.

      • Doug Hanks

        And after bestiality….?

      • Marsha

        Dave, you need to seek help, one has Nothing to do with the other. I am Transgender, actually more specific " GenderQueer " I'm a respected member of my community, I'm very open and everyone knows, my family, my church, my employer who happens to be a school district, I've been nominated for employee of the year 3 times, and have won it once, served my country in the Persian Gulf during Desert Storm & Desert Shield, can you say half as much?

        • uselogic

          You can have a great resume in cyberspace.

        • Anne

          So why do you feel the need to broadcast sexual preferences? Is it not sacred to you that you pour out your personal choices to everyone when it should not be relative to community functions UNLESS your community functions are all about orgies?

          • Marsha

            AT Anne, I did NOT say anything about "sexual preferences"! I only spoke of my "Gender", again two entirely different and unrelated topics

            "Gender" refers to the "socially constructed" roles, behaviors, activities, and attributes that a given society considers appropriate for men and women, and therefore are naturally unrelated to biological sex.

            "Gender Identity" represents a person’s core sense of being male, female, or within a continuum that exists between male and female.

            “Gender Expression” is the physical manifestation of one's gender identity, usually expressed through clothing, mannerisms, and chosen names. Transgender people usually have a gender expression that matches their gender identity, rather than their birth sex.

            “Transgender” is an umbrella term that can be used to describe people whose gender expression is nonconforming and/or whose gender identity is different from their birth assigned gender.

            “Genderqueer “ refers to people who do not identify as, or who do not express themselves as completely male or female.

        • Laurie

          For the love of God, stop blaming the "far left" for everything. The far right tries pushing their hypocritical "Christian" agenda down the nation's neck as much as the left. Did anyone ever think that the kids really did pick this theme? Without "nudging"?

      • amanda hunter

        being a pedophile has nothing in common with being transgender or gay/lesbian where the hell are you getting your informatio. Adult sex with kids will be the norm soon are you nuts there was a group pushing that yeras ago but they disapeared to much negative press,everyone was against them. and where do you get the idea pf beastiality may come next. I would not want to have sex with a child or an animal its just creapy. one last thing i'm a transsexual woman

      • Driverdale

        This is not aligning up to where I hit the reply button. Dave, Apparently you don't know ancient history, where the average life expectancy was about 30. 12 and 13 year old girls were being married off, in fact how old was Jesus's mother reported to be? In fact the stories don't report Mary as giving consent to the act that created her pregnancy. Besides pedophilia is not the norm in today's society. As it shouldn't be. There are laws identifying the age required to have consenting sex. If you are of age and agree to have sexual relations and are not coerced, shouldn't matter who your partner is. When an animal can say they agree to a sexual relationship and they had a say so, you may have a point about beastiality.

    • Anne

      We can only HOPE it's that innocent, but something tells me NOT. The education system has already coming up short, we don't need to waste anymore time on nonsense.

    • Judy Shain

      Sweetbrandigirl2004 and all the others that think this is acceptable have sick warped minds. This conduct and way of thinking is destroying this country. SICKOS!

  • Colleen

    when you call it "gender bender" day – it is not just "kids dressing up" – it's an agenda –

    • uselogic

      Spot on.

    • Eyeswideopen

      You are right , It's an invitation to something that is NOT normal…

  • LeftiesAreDopes

    A few years ago my friend refused to let her kids participate in a "Wear Pajamas" day at her school. Now it's cross dressing time?

    What a bunch of sophomoric so-called progressive lying BS that this is good to "help kids be more considerate of what it's like to be the opposite sex". This is important because….? Let ADULTS wear bras and athletic cups if they want to know what it's like. Dear Lord!

    I would never let my kids go to public school.

    • Anne

      You're right, and people had decency to keep those things to themselves. It's an excuse for the devil to get his foot in the door, what else?

  • Leann

    For those of you who apparently woke up to what was going on in the world when Obama was elected, these sorts of events have been going on for decades.

    Letting a boy dress in a dress for a day will turn him into a girl just as all those women who put on a pair of pants in the 50's and 60's instead of the dresses they wore did. Transgenderism is determined well before kids go to school! It is determined in utero!

    • uselogic

      No, "these sort of events" have not been going on. Didn't happen when I was in public school. Didn't happen when my kids were in public school.

      • Anne

        That was just a "Loud admission" that Obama is behind this but 'don't blame him'. I went to school when the education was good, children knew their place, and so did adults, men knew they were men, women knew they were women. There weren't too many questions, but alas, no one knows who they are anymore or where they belong. Especially even, that THIS does NOT belong in the classroom, or the church or boyscouts. There is a function and a purpose for everything, and there is a serious conflict of interest.

  • Kellee

    Having another day to dress in a costume is the same as Halloween. It is an opportunity for the children to play a little and dress a bit different if they chose. Transgender are really great people with the same feelings as everyone else. Transgender individuals have their brain gender wired contrary to body sex by nature before birth. Therefore transgender is part of Gods plan and should be accepted as such. "Switch it up day" is nothing to fear and likely to be safer for the children the Halloween.

  • AbbyB

    Wow, apparently the bigot community has completely forgotten about the powder puff football day and all that sort of thing. Get over it righties, the world isn't an episode of "Leave it to Beaver:!

    • dave

      it use to be like leave it to beaver until society accepted homosexuality, abortion,taking God from schools and everyday activities…etc.

      • Anne

        Exactly, many people going to hell in a handbasket. What kind of sacrifices do you make? They can't impose on adults who know better. There is a word for those kinds of people; CHILD PREDATORS. Also, cowards, sneaks and liars. They will lose the argument to an educated person, or a caring parent, or grandparent, so they will introduce it to innocent children in a classroom and identify it with something else.

        Child predators is exactly what it is.

      • JPauline Baker

        "it used to be like leave it to beaver…" Are you kidding or are you from another planet? Real life has NEVER been like "Leave it to Beaver" or "Father Knows Best" either. Yes, the 50's were sort of "innocent" but things were kept hidden more too. For example, a family of 5, mom, dad, 1 girl, and 2 boys could appear very much like "Father Knows Best" but in reality the father was molesting the daughter, beating the younger son, verbally/emotionally abusing the mother, and the older son was left to his own devices. Then the 60's came with Vietnam and all hell broke loose. Women's lib, protests, Kennedy's, MLK, Johnson, drugs, Nixon, etc. Roe v. Wade in 1973 and you know how the rest goes. What I'm trying to say is there was never a time that life was like it's presented in the movies and/or TV. I am saddened with today's morals, education, politics, government, and everything else that has deteriorated our way of life. I have mixed feelings about this article and the function at the school. Halloweenish yes, but. I do know it really makes me heartsick and extremely sad, that children are being forced to learn about sex and all the different realities of it starting in kindergarten. Children should be allowed to be children for as long as they can…within reason. After-all, this is the 21st century where some are still living with Ma & Pa until they're in their 30's for one reason or another. lol

    • uselogic

      And apparently the lefty troll community has gotten its marching orders on this one. Make you $10 from OFA yet?

    • Driverdale

      If you look at many yearbooks, from a generation or two ago you would see pageants where the boys would dress up in evening gowns and make-up.

  • jim

    This is absolutly SICK….Was it Halloween? NO! People are getting sicker and sicker. Children being exposed to such behavior BY ADULTS no less what are they thinking? would take my kid out of that school alltogether.
