And the last of the video clips from the latest Gilford School Board:
During this whole meeting I kept thinking one thing: Does the School Board even know that Gilford sports coaches have approached me on this topic? Do they know that the Normal public sees this as being totally unfare?
People aren’t upset that there is a trans-student in the District; they ARE upset that their elected Representatives are powerful enough to turn their worlds upside down. That THEY are now the bigots. That THEY are the ones that show no compassion. That THEY are not caring people.
They are. What they are upset about is a School Board that has rushed this policy through with little input from them. They are upset that, like many others in similar situations, that ONE student / family can throw the whole District into chaos. That the School Board has now picked sides in the Culture War (like it or not, they have – this is not just a legal affair with SB263).
