Taking a page straight out of George Orwell’s 1984, the Chicago Public School (CPS) system released new guidelines mandating all students and employees to use the pronouns and names requested by the transgender and “gender non-conforming” individuals, or face consequences. Trans and gender non-conforming students may also use the restroom and locker-room of their choice.
The CPS system released two sets of extremely similar guidelines; one for “Adults” and one for “Students.” Both explicitly state that “appropriate consequences” will be divvied out if an individual “intentionally” fails to use the requested pronouns of another individual. Kindly, they gave us examples of “common” pronouns: “’they,’ ‘their,’ ‘ze,’ ‘he’ and ‘she.’”
Per the student guidelines: “[T]he intentional or persistent refusal by students or school staff to respect a student’s gender identity (for example, intentionally referring to the student by a name or pronoun that does not correspond to the student’s gender identity) is a violation of these Guidelines, the Student Code of Conduct, and Comprehensive Non-Discrimination, Title IX and Sexual Harassment Policy. Such violations will result in appropriate consequences for offending staff and students.”
Similarly, per the adult guidelines: “The intentional or persistent refusal by school staff or students to respect an individual’s gender identity…is a violation of these Guidelines the Student Code of Conduct, and Comprehensive Non-Discrimination, Title IX and Sexual Harassment Policy. Such violations will result in appropriate consequences for offending staff and students.”
As The Daily Caller notes, “Under the guidelines, schools cannot require transgender individuals to obtain a court order or gender change before forcing the new vocabulary upon students.”
So, on Monday, when Johnny claims to identify as Gabrielle, and wants to be referred to by such name, and by the pronoun “ze,” the teacher and students must capitulate or face “appropriate consequences.”
Plus, Johnny—I mean Gabrielle—can use the girls’ locker-room and restroom, too.
Oh, and the school can’t inform Johnny’s parents about his new “identity” without the “student’s permission.” “[W]hen speaking with other staff members, parents, guardians, or third parties, school staff should not disclose a student’s preferred name, pronoun, or other confidential information pertaining to the student’s transgender or gender nonconforming status without the student’s permission, unless authorized to do so by the Law Department,” read the guidelines.

America has taken sin and wrapped her so delicately with layers of protections and regulations that basically it is illegal to speak the truth. Essentially, reading the Bible will soon be put in the same context as ‘extremist materials’ promoting bigotry and religious intolerance.
And while you ask, how will America do this? Through the Pope. The Pope has said that to be a Christian, you essentially don’t need a doctrine. So Christians in America, or at least Catholics in America should not use a doctrine to promote bigotry, but recognize everyone else, gay, lesbian, atheist, transgender as another Christian.
The end is here.
