Elementary Principal Comes Out as Transgender; Demands Students Respect New Gender



How long are we going to entertain the full-blown cultural insanity that is the transgender movement? How long are we going to confuse young children and wantonly leave irreversible impressions on their young, impressionable minds that gender is fluid and malleable?

Every day there’s a new case of completely irresponsible and self-centered adults forcing young children into this mass delusion, and if you’re anything like me, you’re downright sick of it.

The latest example is the principal from Stanley Elementary School in Swampscott, MA, who recently announced in a letter to the parents of his young students that he is (*poof!*) now a woman.

Just like that.

Here’s the insane part: this is being reported as if, in fact, Principal Tom Daniels legit just up and turned into a woman. Because he said so.


In an article entitled Massachusetts elementary school principal announces she is transgender, USA Today covers the decision this adult made to suck his school community into his own mental illness referring to Principal Daniels using the pronoun “she” from the start of the article.

A Massachusetts elementary school principal has announced that she is transgender, telling her school community in a letter she has “never felt completely happy or at peace.”

Shannon Daniels, previously known as Tom, is the principal at the Stanley Elementary School in Swampscott, a prosperous town northeast of Boston.

“I got to the point that I thought I would never be able to reveal my true self,” she said in the letter. “Frankly, the prospect of doing so was terrifying. … That has changed.”

In the letter, 52-year-old Daniels, who transitioned from her gender assigned at birth (male), said she identifies as both male and female. She now plans to present herself as female and use her middle name, Shannon, as her first name.

This is a reputable, well-established, mainstream news source, and it’s using the patently false terminology of the radical left. Gender is not “assigned at birth”. It is determined by every single cell in our body. Literally.

Well, Daniels obviously doesn’t think so, and was thrilled to announce to his school community that he is now, proudly, sharing his gender identity with his (again, elementary-age) students.

He explains this decision in the text of the letter he sent to parents:

I have struggled with gender identity since I was in elementary school. I did my best to
suppress those feelings for more than 40 years, and while I was successful to a degree, I have
never felt completely happy or at peace….

After confronting a series of challenges last fall, I let myself imagine the
possibility of being completely honest with myself and those around me . I can now say it: I’m transgender. For me, that means I identify as both a male and female, and I plan to move
toward presenting myself and identifying as female.

So instead of dealing with something as severe as not being sure which gender you are, this irresponsible school administrator is instead involving children as young as 5, and the local school board is fully supportive:

In a separate letter to parents, Swampscott Schools Superintendent Pamela Angelakis applauded Daniels for her “courage, honesty, and transparency.”

“Getting to the point of being willing to share those feelings has been a long and challenging process,” Angelakis said. “I hope you will join me and the entire district leadership team in offering Principal Daniels our acceptance, understanding, and support.”

…The school, which has 280 students from kindergarten to fourth grade, will hold a question-and-answer session for parents on Monday, according to the paper. It will include a representative from the state’s Safe Schools Program for LGBTQ Students.

Your tax dollars at work, ladies and gentleman! The faculty seems far more interested in demanding the community agree with this man’s impression that he can simply change his gender at will, and, as CBS Boston reports, “The letter included resources for parents to talk to their children about transgender issues.”

Daniels, who appears in media interviews and pictures as clearly a middle-aged biological man, told CBS Boston that coming out as “transgender” has been nothing but positive for his life.

“Often times what I hear is, ‘well that must mean you’re gay and that must mean you’re going to get a divorce and get fired,” he said. “None of those things have happened, in fact I feel closer to my wife now.”

Well go figure. This is the world we live in now.

There is no denying that this movement, and the world along with it, has completely lost its mind. This isn’t about civil rights or even simply treating people fairly, this is about flat-out denying reality.

Just as the Satan in the garden told Eve she surely wouldn’t die if she tasted the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, the mainstream leftist narrative is flat-out lying to your face about what determines gender.

But Truth always prevails, and no matter how many people play into this outright delusion, men will always be men, and women will always be women. We can only pray for the generation of children who are growing up being told otherwise.
