Parents of Gender Non-Conforming Children Speak Out For Tolerance

Author Ann Philips Letter to Mr. Geary

Dear Mr. Geary,
I am shocked by the hateful words of Rob and Arnie on the recent Rob, Arnie, and Dawn show.  As a former therapist and the author of a children’s book addressing gender issues and the targeting of children who are perceived to be different, I can attest to the daily ordeals that young people suffer inside and outside of school. Bullying, threats, violence, depression and suicide are the all-too-serious consequences of the prejudices against gender difference.
Rob and Arnie’s vicious attitudes condone and promote violence against young people, increasing the overall climate of aggressisveness and intolerance in our society. It’s tragic — for the kids and for those of us who parent and care about them.
