Over the weekend, this story lit up the NBC25 Facebook page with comments.
Brittany Reger-Bucy says, "That should be out of the schools. They can't teach about God but they'll teach about something like that?? I'd be furious!"
Michael Moore states, "Wow once again I am reminded of the ignorance of that which is mid-michigan. Why can they not teach about transgenderism? All of you here are basically saying "let's not teach about diversity or tolerance in schools!" - I can't believe this. I am not transgender but I can't imagine the pain of being bullied by society each day because of who you are. People, when will you learn tolerance and love? Sigh*"

A website says there's a transgender agenda in certain public schools.
Massresistance.org says "gender coaches" are teaching children in California that sometimes you can feel like a boy and sometimes you can feel like a girl, or both.
Supporters of the curriculum say it is an anti-bullying campaign. They say it more clearly defines the idea of gender.
Opponents say it is indoctrination of other agendas and that it confuses children about gender.
