Transsexual janitor in MA elementary school

School sends letter to inform parents that male employee is now a "woman"

Says it will tell children in "simple, straightforward" manner

Feb. 5, 2009

The radical transgender agenda is proceeding quickly into the schools, now reaching the youngest of children. What was completely unthinkable just a few years ago is now being forced as mainstream by public officials. And as usual, no one cares how this affects the fragile psychology of children. Pushing the political ideology as fast as possible takes precedence over everything. (Well, actually GLBT activists know that this will affect little children profoundly.)

At the beginning of this school year parents at the Clara Barton Elementary School in Oxford, MA received a mind-numbing letter from the principal and Superintendent.

Written simply in an eerie informational style, the parents were told that one of the male custodians will now be coming to school dressed as a woman, and is now considered a "woman", and that parents should inform their children of this because the school intended to tell them if they asked about it. "The best thing to tell them is that our custodian used to be a man. She has changed her gender role and is now a woman," the letter said to parents. It's extremely Orwellian.

Dear Clara Barton Families,

Welcome back to a new school year! I hope that you all had a safe, rest filled and refreshing summer. A lot of work has taken place over the summer to get the school ready for this year.

Although we do not usually make formal announcements about our employee's [sic] personal lives, a matter has come up that has the potential to impact the school environment. We believe that it is important to inform everyone openly. Our night custodian has informed us of his decision to change his gender and, as we begin the school year, he will begin living and working as a woman. He has been a valued employee of the Oxford Public schools for many years, and we expect his exemplary performance to continue as he changes gender roles.

The custodial uniform is the same for men and women. However, our students may notice and ask about the differences in our custodian from last year to this. If they ask at school, they will be given a simple and straightforward answer. The best thing to tell them is that our custodian used to be a man. She has changed her gender role and is now a woman.

This can be a difficult topic about which to talk and likely a conversation that no one expected to have. Included with this letter are some resources that provide information about transgender issues that will be helpful should you choose to learn more.

Whether or not one agrees with or supports the decision of our custodian, it is important to note that the Oxford Public Schools does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or disability. We expect our custodian to be treated with the same respect as every other employee. We teach respect by demonstrating respectful behavior.

If you have any questions or concerns that are not addressed by this letter or by the resources provided, please do not hesitate to contact either one of us.

Notice that the school is taking upon themselves to describe this to children in the way they have chosen, whether parents like it or not.

Links for parents to radical transgender websites

Also, on the back of the letter, the parents were given links to "helpful" resources about "transgender issues" to help them "learn more."

These "helpful" links are particularly distressing. They lead to some very radical homosexual / transgender sites. This is apparently what the elementary school principal and superintendent - the people teaching your young children - have studied and consider normal!

Here are the links included with the letter for parents, with quotes from their websites. NOTE the links that also describe CHILDREN changing their sex. That's next.

Center for Gender Sanity - "A refuge from male/female dichotomies, sex-based stereotypes, and other gender madness . . . "

TransKids Purple Rainbow Foundation - "Dedicated to funding research and education about transgender issues to build a brighter future for all TransKids. Our children aren't pink or blue - but rather - various shades of purple."

International Foundation for Gender Education - "Transgender tapestry" [headquartered in Waltham, Mass.]

Gender.org - "Gender Education & Advocacy provides a large selection of freely downloadable materials that you can use in your local area to educate others on gender issues."

The World Professional Association for Transgender Health -
" . . . to promote evidence based care, education, research, advocacy, public policy and respect in transgender health."

Working with a transsexual

This is where the homosexual movement is taking your children. It's like a science fiction movie. And they tend to back it up with legislation. The upcoming "Transgender rights and hate crimes bill" (discussed below), which we warned people about, would make descriptions like ours constitute a "hate crime" in Massachusetts.
