Call me old-fashioned, or normal, or sane, but I gotta think a two-year-old has no idea about gender identity. But, of course, letting kids just be kids must not stand in the way of Progressivism. After all, social justice is more important than individuals, even toddlers, right Jen Aulwes?
Last spring, when I heard Donald Trump say that Caitlyn Jenner could use whatever bathroom she wanted at Trump Tower, I breathed a sigh of relief. There weren’t many things Trump and I agreed on, but this was one. Surely, I hoped, if he became president, he would extend the same courtesy to my 7-year-old daughter, Henry.
That hope was destroyed Wednesday night, when Trump’s administration rescinded the federal order that protects kids in public schools so they can use the bathroom that fits their gender identity. We had told Henry that she could use whatever bathroom she wanted because the president said so. Well, the former president said so. The new president said no.
