Boy or Girl: Texas School District Will Not Recognize ‘Pronouns’
A north Texas school district just made a controversial decision. The Grapevine-Colleyville district, which is located between Dallas and Fort Worth just approved two new policies targeting gender identity on Monday night:
Teachers will not be forced to address students by the pronouns that match their gender identity even if a parent asks them to, and transgender students will be barred from playing sports after the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District board approved two new policies targeting gender identity on Monday night. With the new policies in place, individuals in district schools can only use the bathroom that aligns with their sex assigned at birth. The board voted ended 4-3 in favor of these policies and several others. If you go to this school district you are a boy or girl. End of story.
According to an article published by mysanantonio.com, the school board meeting lasted nearly eight hours, and more than 150 parents and North Texas residents signed up to speak about the proposals before the board was expected to vote. Of course, you have parents for and against the new policy.
The new school district policy states: “the district will not promote, require, or encourage the use of titles or pronoun identifiers for students, teachers or any other persons in any manner that is inconsistent with the biological sex of such person” as listed on a person’s birth certificate.
And if a student, parent, or legal guardian asks the teacher to address the student with pronouns that match their gender identity, the district policy leaves it to the teacher’s “discretion” as to whether a teacher will do so.
