    In an era when they will be teaching that child he can cut off his penis and be a girl, you'd think they would glorify his long gender nonspecific anything goes hair style..

    Seems some schools are resisting the tide.

    Oh please! If he continues down that road, he won't be.

    If you make yourself a target for harassment by not conforming to generally accepted standards, you don't think he will suffer psychologically?

    You really don't know much about kids, do you? They are mean!

    Did you sleep through your own education and not see things like that going on around you?

    I have been a teacher for twenty years. We can stop bullying if we see it, but you can't follow them everywhere. Is that the way things ought to be? Of course not! However, it is reality.

    Don't want to be bullied? Don't have exceptionally long hair if you are a boy. Follow the school's dress code.

    Unless you're native or pacific islander or go to school in Hawaii. Then it's no biggy.

    That's funny, I grew up with kids with long hair. Kids on TV had long hair. Musicians with long hair. THAT was the standard. I think the kid will do well taking care of himself. It is HIS choice what length hair he wears not the schools. And as far as the boy, you were a teacher? Good for you. I have a degree in applied psychology and wrote a book on it.

    Then we know you're a psycho.

    If the school has a dress code that requires short hair on boys, she has the freedom to send him to a different school.

    Good for you! Kids don't usually wear long hair now. In fact, the one student I recently had with incredibly beautiful tresses was so often confused for a girl that I think he just accepted it. As an applied psychologist, I am sure you see no problem with that.

    You wrote a book? What's the matter? Couldn't get a real job? :D

    Ha. You're a laugh.

    Yes she does. And I would! But why would a Kindergarten need a strict "dress code?" As long as the kid is clean and reasonable, whatever happened to that "diversity of expression?" Is it worth messing with the kid's self-image, giving him a complex and holding back his schooling?

    Let me put it this way: Change the story to this:

    MUSLIM CHILD SENT HOME FOR WEARING TRADITIONAL HEADGEAR NOT IN ACCORD WITH SCHOOL DRESS-CODE.

    Had it been a muslim child wearing a face dress or something, not only would the school probably have made an exception, but there would have been 99,000 people coming down hard on the school for discrimination or racial bias had they not!!!

    The difference here is that it was a white kid. Whites don't get the protection of any of the usual arguments saved for everyone else. That is their "privilege."
