Isabella Burgos is a boy who identifies as a girl and started using the girls’ bathroom this year. A few weeks ago, a mother of one of Isabella’s classmates allegedly confronted the student inside the school twice in one day.

“She approached my daughter and, right to her face, pointing in her face with her finger, said, “You’re not allowed to use the girls’ bathroom anymore,” recounts Dale Burgos, the student’s mother.

The school has told Isabella to use the gender-neutral washroom. The River East Transcona School Division, which governs the school, says that approach follows the rules set out by the Manitoba human rights commission, which says that transgender students should use their schools’ gender-neutral washrooms.

Actual girls have a right to privacy away from boys who identify as girls.

  1. “Eight-year-old Isabella Burgos was born a boy.”

    He was born male, and is a boy.

    A few weeks ago, a mother of one of Isabella’s classmates allegedly confronted the student inside the school twice in one day.

    “She approached my daughter and, right to her face, pointing in her face with her finger, said, “You’re not allowed to use the girls’ bathroom anymore,” recounts Dale Burgos, the student’s mother.

    If her “daughter” was born male, has a penis and testicles, why should female students have to share a restroom with this boy? There is no way anyone can prove that this eight year old boy’s “gender identity” is more important than the personal right to privacy, human dignity, and potential emotional suffering of female students. Some of the female students might be emotionally triggered (past sexual abuse, etc.) by the presence of males in the girl’s restroom, and most girls would be embarrassed by having to share a restroom with a boy. There is a basic human right to privacy, and there is also the issue of female students being potentially emotionally triggered by males in their personal space such as restrooms and locker rooms. All of this is just as important as “gender identity” in an eight year old boy.

    “She approached my daughter and, right to her face, pointing in her face with her finger, said, “You’re not allowed to use the girls’ bathroom anymore,” recounts Dale Burgos, the student’s mother….The school has told Isabella to use the gender-neutral washroom.”

    I say good for this mother who has the courage to stand up for the rights of female students.

  2. Look, the bottom line is that the school is correct. They’re not infringing on this individual’s rights by asking them to use a neutral bathroom . Unless one can ONLY truly be a “girl” by being allowed access to females , regardless of their feeling on the matter? I dunno, the reasons for being trans are complex, and often children aren’t trans at all but folk can’t find another label for gender non conformity..hell..people do like their labels.
    And heaven forfend a child may simply be gay.
    But access as affirmation? I think THAT should be the decision of those being “accessed” and their guardians, NOT the person desiring that access.

  3. Has anyone considered the possiblity that parents could be damaging their 8 year old children by labelling them “trans” at such an early age, or insisting that 8 year old male children are “girls” because they are different from other boys? Also, no one is allowed to look at the family dynamics. We are supposed to take at face value that 8 year old boys know that they are “girls”. It could be that the mother saw something about transgender on t.v., or read something online. Or, the mother really wanted a girl instead of a boy.

    Everyone just goes along with the idea that a 8 year old boy somehow a “girl” as if there is no subtle coaching from parents or others. I’m not buying it, and it smacks of child abuse. The mother of Coy Mathis, the 6 year old “transgender” kid in Colorado, gave birth to her triplets in a kiddie pool in the living room. It’s true, and she admitis it. Coy, born a boy, was one of triplets. Mothers of triplets on some blogs say that Coy’s mother sure does love attention. No one is allowed to look at the family dynamics or cultural influences (what parents see on t.v., read online about transgender, etc.).

    I still say the “transgendering” of children smacks of child abuse. Because this 8 year old boy is different than other boys doesn’t mean he is a “girl”, and it certainly doesn’t give him the right to violate the privacy rights of girls.

    Finally, can anyone predict with certainty how this 8 year old boy will feel when he is 18, or 21? Studies that go back decades clearly show that most children grow out of “gender dysphoria”.
