(Newser) – When Issak Wolfe walks in his Pennsylvania high school's graduation ceremony Friday, he won't hear his name read aloud as he accepts his diploma. Instead, he'll hear his legal—female—name, Sierra Stambaugh, the York Dispatch reports. Wolfe is transgender, and Red Lion Area High School has refused his request to read the male name he now uses, despite Wolfe's backing from the ACLU. The district's position: A diploma is a legal document and needs to carry a legal name; Wolfe is legally changing his name, but hasn't completed the process yet since he just turned 18 in April.
But Wolfe hoped that, even if his diploma carried his birth name, his chosen name could be read aloud. The principal rejected his request, so the ACLU took the issue to the school board, which last week decided to uphold the principal's decision, the Patriot-News reports. (Wolfe was accompanied by more than 50 supporters and a petition bearing 2,000 signatures when he attended the board meeting, NBC Philadelphia reports.) The district will, however, allow Wolfe to wear a black cap and gown with the rest of the male students, rather than the yellow one worn by the female students. Wolfe was previously in the news in April, when his principal listed him on the prom queen ballot, rather than the prom king ballot as he had requested.
Life used to be so much more simple.
She needs to grow a pair and get over it!
Which, as we all know, has now replaced God as the ultimate authority on social mores.
Of course “he” won’t hear “his” name ... he’s a she, was at the instant of her conception, and will be until she’s dead ... no matter what manner of mutilations she hires surgeons to perform on her.
Should read “rather than the Prom King ballot which she DEMANDED.”
Should read “rather than the Prom King ballot which she DEMANDED.”
I bet if someone punches her in the mouth, she’ll go back to being a girl.
The useless article did not specify what it was born with between its legs, so if it has ovaries and the plumbing that goes with it, then she is a female and nothing can ever change that fact. She can attach whatever she wants to her hips but she ain’t ever going to be a he. Gender is in your genes, not your head. What a waste.
There is no such thing as "transgender". It is a made-up concept to cover for someone who has a sick mind and unnatural desires (the Bible is pretty clear about those unnatural affections/desires).
There are a relatively tiny number of folks who are born with a chromosomal issue where they might have some sex traits of both genders - but still, they are at the root, fundamentally one gender or another. But again - this is extremely rare.
This is not one of those cases. This is a case where a girl isn't happy being a girl, so she wants to be treated like a boy. Period.
I am glad this school is sticking to the law.
These people are delusional. Being born a particular sex means that IS the sex you are. You can 'decide' you're another sex, but it doesn't change it. You can surgically mutalatee yourself into the appearance of another sex, but is still doesn't change what you are.
So the question becomes-
If these people are delusional into believing they are something they are not, why are we forced to be enablers to their delusion?
You are correct in that the left has redefined the language.
“Transgender” is nothing more than the recipient of expensive cosmetic surgery in the extreme, and a cross dresser in the milder cases.
Fine! Apparently someone else will have to correct Evann Gastaldo’s writing because no one at Newser is capable of doing so:

There. I have removed some of the ‘stupid’ for everyone.
Why would a woman want to be a man in this day and age. Men are marginalized, castigated, wussified, and dismissed.
yep, and we’re supposed to be liberal and let this boy/girl/it make any demands, because the ACLU is involved. And because the trans/whatever people are an officially recognized aggrieved group.
i wonder if its parents are liberal, and if its parents encouraged this and got the ACLU involved.
Why does the issue of gay rights, trans rights, have to be forced into every area of society? it has to be forced into school graduations now. Liberals love this kind of stuff. why?
And in both cases the individual is mentally disturbed, and the commies trying to tip over the apple cart of society think it’s fun to encourage them, for the community agitation it provides, and the destruction of the traditional family unit. A twofer if you will.
Let me guess; “he” hasn’t had “his” ovaries, uterus or breasts removed.
STAN: Or woman.
REG: Why don't you shut up about women, Stan. You're putting us off.
STAN: Women have a perfect right to play a part in our movement, Reg.
FRANCIS: Why are you always on about women, Stan?
STAN: I want to be one.
STAN: I want to be a woman. From now on, I want you all to call me ‘Loretta’.
LORETTA: It's my right as a man.
JUDITH: Well, why do you want to be Loretta, Stan?
LORETTA: I want to have babies.
REG: You want to have babies?!
LORETTA: It's every man's right to have babies if he wants them.
REG: But... you can't have babies.
LORETTA: Don't you oppress me.
REG: I'm not oppressing you, Stan. You haven't got a womb! Where's the foetus going to gestate?! You going to keep it in a box?!
Actually Gender is in your grammar, Sex is in your genes. :)
Democrats love chaos. They can’t stand the idea we have a nice stable mom and pop society. All these science fiction movies where they display these utterly chaotic societies, that’s their vision of the future.
Note some of the rooms the ‘star’ characters live in. In the latest version of ‘Total Recall’, notice the walls and the rooms in particular. It’s total filth. I wouldn’t live like that.
You have to wonder what motivates these folks. I’ll bet they don’t live like that. Do they honestly expect us to? Frankly, I think the answer is yes. They expect large portions of society to degenerate into that.
if it’s not her legal name, it’s only a nickname, and it should not be read or put on her diploma. i sure didn’t hear “absolootezer0” read when i crossed the stage.
she should also remember that for many legal documents, job applications, if she’s arrested.. she’ll still have to put her birth name as an AKA. she’ll always be known as having had that name.
HER legal name IS FEMALE. IF SHE wants to have a male name, go to COURT AND CHANGE IT.
Then they will read your name.
“Wolfe is transgender,”
She is mentally ill.
But the perpetual adolescents who are passing themselves off as adults, go along and encourage these fantasies just as they have been “educated” to do. Perception trumps reality in LaLa Land.
To play this tranny game is like talking to the man who “hears” voices. To him, they’re real, he’s actually hearing them even though the rest of us can’t because they don’t exist outside of his head.
If we acknowledge his reality as being equal to true reality (there are no voices) then everything becomes mud.
Nothing’s true and nothing’s false.
What do you do then?
You call it moral relativism and celebrate peversity!
Poor mixed-up girl.
She’s wishing to grow a pair, but since God didn’t give her male genitals, she just can’t seem to manage to outdo Him. It’s silly to try, because even when we do change His plan, we muck it up pretty seriously.
There is no medical procedure to add or remove those little things!
Yepper! You speak the truth!
No such thing.
The district will, however, allow Wolfe to wear a black cap and gown with the
rest of male students, rather than the yellow one worn by the rest of the female students.
There fixed it.
He’s probably accepting donations for an addadictomy.
Another completely deranged freak claiming to be what it is not after undergoing genital mutilation butchery.
It is not a “he”.
Yeah the proper term is disfigurement.
High school kid?
What parents would consent and fund such atrocity?
Males XY, Females XX. One copy of the X is typically inactive. Trying to fake having a Y with hormones is just that...fakery. The development process that determines male or female is influenced by testosterone during early fetal development. There are phenotypic changes to bone structure and brain development. Changes you can't undo on a whim. The pelvic configuration and skull structure will be female.
Boy George had a son! Or is it daughter? whatever
Abibify or other antipsychotics can make those voices go away. I wonder if there’s a drug that works on transgender delusions?
