"Toronto Catholic school board votes to include gender identity, expression in code of conduct"

At a marathon meeting that lasted until nearly 2 a.m. Friday, trustees voted eight-to-four in favour of a motion to add four terms to the board's code: gender identity, gender expression, family status and marital status.


Why anyone would think gender dysphoria is a sin is beyond me.

Why anyone thinks there's a bearded man in the sky deciding these things is beyond me.

Why we would ever allow the people who think there's a bearded man in the sky to run schools is beyond me.

That's true. I saw her quite clearly one rainy evening just as I was wiping out on my Kawasaki.

No.  Don't forget to take every opportunity to point out that The Rebel and The Post Millennial didn't bother to send a reporter to the school.

F*** these people... if they can't complain without lying then shame them until they either learn or shut up.

The Post-Millennial reported a Tweet from a Canadian politician that had gone viral.  They contacted the school (by phone) for comment.  They posted an update when the teenager in question explained that they'd actually been suspended for posting anti-LGBT posters all over the school, not for refusing to wear a rainbow poppy pin.  And they posted another update when Cyara Bird apologized and conceded that she had the facts completely wrong.

People were certainly lied to by Cyara Bird and her niece.  There's an argument to be made that Post-Millennial shouldn't have reported on the tweet at all, but if this was a controversy that had already gone viral on Twitter, then I don't agree.

Yes.  That is the argument.  You don't post stories on unverified tweets.
