1. I don't know how I feel about this

 

Even if children show signs of gender confusion, they are not ready to handle these concepts. Another thing that concerns me is that they may not really be transgendered. For instance, cross-dressing men may have had the urge since childhood yet not wished to take it past dressing in private. So why not just be accepting of their wishes as parents and explain the situation to the teacher so the teacher can make sure that the child isn't bullied.

But the reality is that kids get bullied for EVERYTHING: wearing glasses, being too fat, not having namebrand clothing...
