    Wisconsin elementary school cancels reading about transgender teen after anti-LGBTQ group threatens lawsuit

    A Wisconsin school district cancelled its reading of "I Am Jazz" after a Florida group threatened to sue.
    A Wisconsin elementary school called off a scheduled reading of a children’s book about a transgender girl after a Florida-based non-profit threatened to sue.
    The Mount Horeb Primary Center had planned to read “I Am Jazz,” a book based on the real-life experience of Jazz Jennings, a 15-year-old transgender activist.
    The principal sent home a letter to parents on Nov. 19, in advance of the reading, according to the Minneapolis StarTribune.
    "We believe all students deserve respect and support regardless of their gender identity and expression, and the best way to foster that respect and support is through educating students about the issue of being transgender," the letter said.
    Then, religious activists stepped in.
    Liberty Counsel, which the Southern Poverty Law Center classifies as a hate group, responded with an angry letter — and a threat to sue.
    The Liberty Counsel letter accuses the school of waiting till the last minute to send the letter in order to “catch parents off-guard, to prevent them from opting their children out of this reading and subsequent discussion.”
    The letter claims that the school would violate parental constitutional rights “to direct the upbringing of their children” and threatens suit if the reading results in any harm, including “gender confusion” or “violations of restroom privacy.”

    "I Am Jazz" is the story of real-life transgender teen Jazz Jennings.
    In response, the district caved and cancelled the reading, according to the Madison Capital Times.
    On Tuesday, the district’s director of student services offered a statement acknowledging "the need for parents to be given the opportunity to consider and discuss information we provide to their children.”
    The following day, the district issued a press release, announcing the reading cancellation.
    “Please know that our continuing goal is to protect all students from any bullying, harassing or intimidating behavior at school so that all of our students may learn together in a safe and caring environment,” the release said.
    Brian Juchems, senior director of education and policy at the Gay Straight Alliance for Safe Schools, told the Madison newspaper that schools have a responsibility to address differences and support all students.
    "We should welcome students as they are, not how we want them to be or how we'd like to them be," Juchems said.

    If being labeled a religious nut for fighting to keep this being taught in schools is what's crazy.

    If it was a Wisconsin group that had an issue it would be more credible, a bunch of loons in Florida are just looking to stir shit.

    Not all of Florida is party city. Northern Florida is all native people and right next to Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina and other places like that.
    Think of the population of Florida as being the U.S. upside down.

    A school doesn't need to foster tolerance anymore than it needs to encourage intolerance. Just teach math and science and let kids figure out the world for themselves. This obsession with trying to "teach" kids how they should feel about anything is insidious. Leftists need to create some sort of "Sunday School" for their children if they want to teach worldviews.

    kids shouldn't be learning that being mentally deranged is normal behavior.

    sex change surgery should include a straitjacket and padded cell, never to be heard from again

    as the moral compass of this forum, i am disappointed in many of you in this thread

    I imagine it's like CA as well, the further from the coast the less progressive it gets. The inland bayou boys like to keep their gay shit in the outhouse and out of the schools.

    Was in Florida once. Had to attend a family funeral in Dothan Alabama (south east corner) My brother who lives in St Pete also drove up. Afterward I asked him how far the Fla state line was, and he said 15 minute down that road. Took a ride for 45 minutes into Fla to kill time, and it was just like Alabama. Saw more palm trees in Ala. Almost ran over an armadillo.
