    His child is 6 and "was born with a penis." Nonetheless, "he tried to raise (his) daughter as a boy. Complete with blue walls and Tyrannosaurus rex pajamas. I gave her my father's name. Took her to church on Sundays." (Not sure why that's gender-specific.)

    The tale of one father's quest to let his transgender kindergartner pee pee with the girls:

    Lots of these stories on social media up here.

    Our province has 2 school systems, public and Catholic, both funded by the government. Catholic systems are up 9n arms about having to accomodate Transgender kids.

    The local Catholic bishop is doing more harm than good with his fight as there seems to be a consensus building about defining the Catholic system.

    We have had this issue in our high schools. I still wonder if the kids themselves have a problem or if it's all the parents.

    My 3-year-old girl watched the Daytona 500 yesterday. Which bathroom should she use?

    Trick question. She should go in the yard.

    I think his son suffers for lack of a male role model.

    There are a lot of things that are ridiculous about the current social justice movement, but pushing society to become accepting of transgender people - kids in particular - is not one of them.

    The kid is 6. It is bothersome to me that a 6-year-old is considered "transgender."

    It's conceivable that gender identity is innate.

    I like big boots, and I cannot lie.
    I like small penises and mustaches; I'm not sure why
