Colorado School Official Wants Trans Kids Castrated [View all]

When a school official advocates for trans kids being castrated before they’re allowed to use the gender facilities that align with their identity, you know something has gone terribly wrong. Sadly, that’s a reality in one Colorado school.

Delta County School Board member Katherine Svenson has made international headlines for transphobic comments she reportedly made during an October school board meeting.

“I would like to pass out something that shows people what is going on in the rest of the country,” she is quoted as saying. “Massachusetts and California have passed laws relating to calling a student, irrespective of his biological gender, letting him perform as the gender he thinks he is, or she is, and I want to emphasize, and they’re actually talking about joining girls sports teams going in the girls locker rooms and bathrooms, and I just want to emphasize not in this district. Not until the plumbing’s changed. There would have to be castration in order to pass something like that around here.”

Nevertheless, Svenson stands by her comments. In follow up remarks to NewsChannel 5, Svenson said:

“I don’t have a problem if some boys think they are girls, I’m just saying as long as they can impregnate a woman, they’re not going to go in girls locker-room.”

Sounds shockingly familiar to some things I am reading as of late.
