    I see your shifting gaze, that disgusted glance. I know you’re questioning my parenting from across the elementary school assembly.

    Let me tell you a little story about the kindergarten student with bright purple hair, my little Raven Marie…

    A month before school started she decided to play hair stylist with the craft scissors, and to save what was left I had to opt for a pixie cut. She was absolutely devastated. It was about three hours before she stopped her harsh sobbing and hiccups.

    Why?

    She has thought that the length of a girls hair was what made her “girly”. I know I’ve personally had many hairstyles around her before, including a purple mohawk, which many people criticized as not being “girly” enough. Media, other children, other parents, and society made it worse. She would randomly burst in tears while out in public for the first week of her new style, screaming that she looked like a boy. That everyone would think she’s a boy.

    At one point she took off her bow in her hair, threw it at a cashier and screamed, “I DON’T NEED THIS BOW TO TELL YOU THAT I’M NOT A BOY, BECAUSE I’M NOT”

    Proudly stomping away in her blue jean overalls, head held high.

    Once we edged closer to the first day of school she kept asking questions like, “Do you think the other kids will like me? Do you think they’ll be my friend? Will they think I’m a boy? Will they pick on me because I have boy hair?”

    So I went to the grocery store, bought some dye, and spent the whole night transforming my bright blonde little girl into a plum punk rock fairy. I then assured her that if any of the kids didn’t like her, they were just jealous.

    As for you, mothers and teachers with the wandering eyes filled with disgust and judgement, I’m in the business of raising a free spirit.

    Here’s to you, Raven Marie. I love you.

    You might think you are so radical and oh such a great parent for teaching your kid to be a nonconformist but all you are doing is limiting your child’s potential and brainwashing it.

    Take it from an educator : kids need conformity, they need to fit in, they need to belong. Why do you think some get bullied and others don’t? At a young age our minds work on a semi primitive level. The group keeps us safe, are friends are those who are like us, we are different because our group is different. Those that stand out get bullied, get cast aside. You are setting up your kid to be judged and ridiculed.

    Furthermore you teach her liberalism, feminism and other political non sense that matters to you but has no business polluting a child’s mind. Kids MUST discover things themselves, you as a parent have the OBLIGATION to take care of your kid and that includes giving them COMPLETE FREEDOM OF CHOICE. If your girl wants to fit in, to have long locks and be a house wife one day then you let her do that.

    You DO NOT preach feminism to a kindergarten kid. You DO NOT push your agenda on an impressionable mind. You DO NOT set up your kid to be the school’s freak.

    In other words, you are a bully to your own child. You are unfit to have a kid simply because you fail to understand basic human behavior. You know close to nothing about a child’s education and frankly the one that needs to go back to kindergarten is you.

    they said it so well up there… kids will grow up and have their own time to have these phases and it will be by their own choice (like it or not of course lol) I’ve seen it first hand many times what happens when a child doesn’t fit in… like once there was this little boy who was always dressed in really weird hipster clothes (like a little suit and even a red bow) and it was hell for him. and of course it was my fault I didnt stop all the bullying but it’s not all my fault… it has to start from home. and I know its unfair but the world,the society is not fair. there is something what majority calls normal depending on country and culture and you need to just take it for the sake of your child… like said there will be day and time they can do whatever they want.

    OH MY GOD HER HAIR IS PURPLE

    CONFORMITY
    PATRIARCHY
    ABUSIVE HOME
    BAD PARENTS

    OH NOOOOOOOOOOOO
    ~Eugene

    You dyed her hair.

    You dyed a little kid’s hair. 

    With paint containing dangerous chemicals that can cause cancer.

    A little fucking kid. 

    Are you fucking insane?! 

    There’s been fucking research that links an increased risk of cancer to dying a child’s hair at too early of an age. 

    What the fuck is wrong with you. 

    Y’all do realize there’s hair dye you can literally eat? Won’t harm that kid more than going outside. She looks awesome.

    It’s a hair colour. So fucking what. What’s the difference between her having it that colour or brown or black or blonde or ginger? The hair dyes used to get those colours are vegan - harmless.

    The post was about the child and their own identity. Which is wonderful. So fucking what if their hair colour is a vibrant colour. Kids shouldn’t have to force themselves to ‘conform’ so they aren’t bullied, kids should know to accept individuals as they are and NOT bully.

    I will teach my child feminism from the day they are born.
    Why?? Because I don’t want a shitty kid that believes my daughter needs a man’s approval to be beautiful.
    I was taught patriarchy since I was a child and made me submissive and confused.
    So fuck you. I will teach my child equality.

    Reblogging purely for that ^

    Oh my fucking fuck…
    Did you actually READ what she wrote AT ALL ?????
    Her child cut her hair herself. Instead of leaving it all uneven, she gave her the BEST HAIRSTYLE SHE COULD. Her daughter being unsure of being recognized as a girl, she dyed it in a girly color…

    People are so fucking quick to judge… “As an educator”… Well let me tell you, I’m happy as all fuck you aren’t anywhere close to my kids ‘CUZ YOU SUCK. Teaching kids to fit the mold is the best way to bring about bullies. Because NOT EVERY KID FITS YOUR GODDAMN MOLD. Some are deaf, some have diseases, some have handicaps, some have a different color of skin or language or way to dress… and to teach these kids to appreciate those differences is what will help make bullies a think of the past.

    And I work with young kids, pre-school age.

    There needs to be more teachers as passionate as you. ^

"Vancouver School Board Introduces Gender-Neutral Pronouns"

"Students and teachers in Vancouver can now use the gender-neutral pronouns "xe," "xem," and "xyr." The move is designed to accommodate students for whom "he" and "she" does not fit or is deemed inappropriate…
"The newly coined pronouns — xe, xem, and xyr — are pronounced to rhyme with the genderless plurals "they," "them," and "their," and all starting with the "z" sound. So phonetically speaking, they’re pronounced "zey, "zem", and "zare.""

the article doesn’t do the issue justice.
the issue regarded policy change, where the vancouver school board’s (VSB) LGBTQ+ advisory committee re-wrote existing policy to protect staff and students falling on the queer and trans spectrums. 
the policy revision includes
-they/them/their and non-traditional pronouns being recognized by the school system
-required used of preferred names and pronouns by all staff and students
-preferred names/pronouns on all school records
-gender-accesible washrooms and change rooms available to those who require them
-disciplinary action taken against those who act in a discriminatory or hateful manner towards students, staff, and families falling on the queer and trans spectrums
—————-
the consultation was the longest ever done by the VSB, with over 120 speakers spread across 3 meetings. 
the process also resulting in two school board trustees being ejected form their party’s caucus, due their discriminatory actions and arguments.
