Liam Morrison, a seventh-grader at Nichols Middle School in Massachusetts, was sent home on March 21 for refusing to take off a t-shirt that read, “There are only two genders” Morrison said he was told the slogan on his shirt was “targeting a protected class” — apparently referring to transgender and nonbinary people — and was a “disruption to learning.” The 12-year-old pushed back against those claims in his address to the school committee.
“Who is this protected class?” he asked. “Are their feelings more important than my rights? I don’t complain when I see Pride flags and diversity posters hung throughout the school. Do you know why? Because others have a right to their beliefs, just as I do.” “No one got up and stormed out of class. No one burst into tears,” Morrison told his audience. “I’m sure I would have noticed if they had.” “I experience disruptions to my learning every day,” he added. “Kids acting out in class are a disruption, yet nothing is done.
Why do the rules apply to one yet not another?” Morrison pointed out that before he was booted from the school, “not one person” complained to him directly about the words on his shirt — and he said some students had even expressed their support for him. “I know that I have a right to wear a shirt with those five words,” Morrison said.
“Even at 12 years old, I have my own political opinions and I have a right to express those opinions. Even at school. This right is called the First Amendment to the Constitution.”
You are totally correct not only on your right of free speech, which its purpose is to protect minority opinions, as the beliefs of the majority do not need protection for obvious reasons, but also in the scientific facts supporting that they are indeed only 2 genders, male and female, different obviously in their anatomy, but also in their DNA.
There is no such thing as transgender, or any of the made up names made by a movement whose only purpose is the destruction of our values, and takeover of our right of free thinking.
There is though, an extremely rare disorder used to be called transsexuality, and now gender dysphoria, a broader and more political term.
In all serious studies the prevalence of this condition is less than 0.005% of our population.
The rest is a ruse. What is currently called Trans women and/or men in these times are only true men and women disguised as the opposite gender.
Over 10 years ago, I warned about this idea, at that time a mostly unknown, movement, but only received criticism mainly because it was told by colleagues that it would never be believed!!
I referred to you as Mr. Morrison to make a point that you, a seventh grader have more “cojones” that most adults, that agree with you but are afraid to speak.
Excerpts of my previous opinion on subject
The tacit acceptance, as now has caught on with our media and television, of sexual fetishes, perversions, psychological disorders, mental illness and criminal behaviors as being “trans”, and thus “normal”, has to be understood as another way of destroying the very fabric of our society.
The ultimate goal of this movement is to abolish the biological determinant of two genders, male and female, and establish a “gender neutral” society.
Already we face fewer unions of couples, and more “open marriages” and hedonistic life styles.
When instincts and the pursuit of pleasure become dominant in the population, it becomes the beginning of the end of its existence.
Traditions and morals might vary in different cultures, but no civilized society has been able to survive without rules that control excess on its behavior, and where amorality rules.
We are presently facing this danger.
