'I do not want to send my son to school dressed like a girl'
It was part of a week of school spirit festivities in Milwaukee that included theme days such as Crazy Hair Day and events were routine for students and parents until the schedule hit “Gender-Bender” Day.
Then parents reacted. “I do not want to send my son to school dressed like a girl,” one parent told Fox 6 News, which reported on the dispute.
The fight focused on the idea that school officials should not be telling students of grade school age to dress like the opposite sex. The report from Fox said the school, when confronted by concerns about a “gender-bender” day, did decide to alter the name to “Switch it up.”
