I would imagine any school funded by the state, the state has the right to make the rules.

All the catholic schools in the states I'm aware of are private (self funded) and therefore can make up their own rules. Provided they do not grossly fly in the face of the constitution or violate a law.

Private "clubs" can basically set their membership rules.

well in the 19th century it was common for young boys & girls to both wear dresses & long hair, in fact there is a rather famous picture of FDR as a young child looking like a little girl.
here's an idea, let people dress how they want & worry about things like teaching them how to read, write & do math.



Indeed:

Call me crazy, but I don't think someone that believes it was important that elves roamed middle earth with hobbits and defeated Sauron, can call anything crazy.

Can we all at least agree that we're all equally nuts in our own special way?

Correct me please Frank,  you don't actually believe in Middle Earth other than as a rather good allegory.....  Do you?

I think it's more like some kind of extensive parable than an allegory per se.

In a true allegory, ideas are symbolized by people, like the Olympus gods who each represented a set of natural phenomena, like youth, love, sleep etc...

Well I have a soft spot for Tolkien too, although I have not read him for years... Don't want to,  really,  might take the gloss off the memory.

Tolkien is rather unique to me as an author.  His mastery of the language lends an almost musical quality to his writing.  Even though I know his stories back and forth, hearing Tolkien tell them in his own rhythm and tempo is like listening to Bach or Beethoven to me. 

It's possibly an apt comparison.  I understand that in the Silmarillion, Middle earth was created out of music or something, haven't read it.  Music plays a central theme in the story though certainly.  Tom Bombadil was nominally a bard, nearly always spoke or sung in stress-timed metre: 7-beat lines broken into groups of 4 and 3.  Why did Tolkien add this mysterious character?  Speculation has it Tom more than just a bard but also a god on middle earth.

Tom Bombadil is the bedrock, everything revolves around his reality.


Like The Stranger in The Big Lebowski.

Well that's a few things to unpack for you, my American friends.

1. A State-funded Christian school

2. State rules say that the school must accept the transgender child as trans.

3. Censure of parents removing their children from the school as a result.


Untangle THAT.

If RWB and Wally and that dumb prick Stu comment, could you please try to keep it on topic rather than your boring usual shtick?

Thanks so much.


Maybe it is unclear due to my lack of understanding of how the school system works there, but what consequences do the parents face in removing their child from the school?

Because that would be my response.  Remove the child from the school and let the school do what it will.
