We have all heard about the North Carolina "Bathroom Bill" which was a response of the state to block Charlotte's local government's attempt to allow men who self-identify as women to use the "Ladies Room" and/or locker room if they so desire.
Now the Charlotte public school system is suggesting that its teachers eliminate gender-specific language altogether. The story was posted by ABC news.

"CHARLOTTE (WTVD) -- A Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools presentation to principals and counselors recommends children are not to be referred to as boys and girls, but instead as scholars and students.
READ THE COMPLETE DOCUMENT: CMS transgender student presentation (.pdf) (warning, my porn blocking software wouldn't let me open this)
Eliminating boy and girl references is one of several policies included in the CMS bully prevention regulations, WSOC reported.
One policy allows students to participate in extracurricular activities and overnight field trips based on their gender identity. A student who identifies as a girl would be allowed to participate in an 'all-girl' overnight trip.
Another policy says CMS must evaluate all gender-based activities and 'maintain only those that have clear and sound pedagogical purpose.'
Another recommendation is to avoid lining up students by a boy/girl/boy format, instead using an alphabetical, birth month or favorite color designation."Don't expect the Episcopal bishops of North Carolina to weigh in on this. They have been outspoken opponents of protecting the privacy of our youth (see their letter opposing the "Bathroom Bill").
My guess is that children who are raised in such an environment will be at a greater risk of gender confusion as they enter their teenage years.
Perhaps that is the goal. After all, homosexuals cannot reproduce by any other means.
I am advising all of my friends who live in Charlotte to home-school or to enroll in a private Christian school.
