At transgender camp in El Cerrito, children as young as 4 find safe space

EL CERRITO, Calif. (Jocelyn Gecker/AP) – In some ways, Rainbow Day Camp is very ordinary. Kids arrive with a packed lunch, make friendship bracelets, play basketball, sing songs and get silly. But it is also extraordinarily unique, from the moment campers arrive each morning.
At check-in each day, campers make a nametag with their pronoun of choice. Some opt for “she” or “he.” Or a combination of “she/he.” Or “they,” or no pronoun at all. Some change their name or pronouns daily, to see what feels right.

  1. This is absolutely horrible and these parents should be arrested and put away for failure to be a parent and parent ignorance and stupidity. If a 4 year old child is confused about gender someone needs to take a harder look at their parents and what they are doing and allowing behind closed doors. At 4 years old most children have a hard time deciding what cartoon they wanna watch and at the perfect age to figure out how to get what they want and what kind of fit to throw. This over whelming lack of parental responsibility in raising children is destroying everything everywhere. This camp is just another way for parents to get out of being a parent and allowing some stranger to teach their child who know what. Any father who would allow there son to dress like a girl should be ashamed of himself and is obviously no man himself and should be locked up along with the lazy ass wife or mother who allows it as well. All this liberal ignorance is destroying the entire civilized world. Yes woman should think for themselves and have their own mind but at the same time a woman should want to take care of her family and be a woman of her home. Men need to return to the family and be husbands and fathers. The Family unit as a whole needs to return. When everything got to lazy and family became unimportant is when everyone started getting confused. When families were families and parents were involved loving around and the family structure was solid so was our society.
    no i am not a man I am a 36 year old straight married woman who is dedicated to her family to my 2 children my 4 step children and my grand children. I take care of my home and my family just as my husband does, but i also love and support my race and folk and spend my days educating and run my own business. But my husband doesn’t go with out a meal when he comes home from work and the kids always have someone at anything going on with them . A family can be successful, happy, solid, and close at the same time. family values need to return or the life we all want to keep will disappear as we know it just like our race.
