Most of us remember when we thought the opposite sex was icky. “Don’t touch her she has the cooties.” Little did we know that in a few short years you would do anything to get the same girl’s attention?
I remind you of this to remind you how confusing the whole thing can be at seven or nine. We have questions and no one to give the answers. We either did not know how to ask or who we should ask.
The government in Britain is stepping in to solve this problem. But like most government solutions, it is sure just to make things worse.

A controversial new book on gender is set to be introduced as a resource in some British primary schools later this month, and it’s already causing an uproar. It’s called “Can I Tell You About Gender Diversity?”
The book’s subject, a 12-year-old “transitioning” from female to male, uses puberty-blocking drugs to undergo a sex change. Jessica Kingsley Publishers says that the book is the first to “explain medical transitioning for children aged seven and above.” The book is set to be distributed by the government-funded organization, Educate, and Celebrate, for use in schools.
Besides the fact that this book takes for granted that most children struggle with gender, there is another problem. The problem is the person footing the bill, the taxpayers of the UK. So not only is the government confusing the children, they are charging their parents for the privilege.
Americans should pay attention. How often have well-meaning parents defended the government-sponsored sex-education in our schools? But, now we see once they get started, who will determine what is and what is not healthy for our children to learn?
It seems the same lefty nuts that we gave them to in the first place.
