A transgender teacher in Boston, Massachusetts told Kindergarteners “sometimes the doctor is wrong” when assigning gender at birth.
The Brooke Charter Schools first grade teacher made the controversial comments during an “identity share” Zoom call with K-2nd grade about being a biological woman that now identifies as a man.
“Something really cool and unique about who I am is that I am transgender,” the teacher said.
“So when babies are born, the doctor looks at them and they make a guess about whether the baby is a boy or a girl based on what they look like, and most of the time, that guess is 100 percent correct. There are no issues whatsoever, but sometimes the doctor is wrong. The doctor makes an incorrect guess.”
“When the doctor makes a correct guess, that’s when a person is called cisgender. When a doctor’s guess is wrong, that’s when they are transgender,” the teacher said.
“So, I’m a man but when I was a baby, the doctors told my parents I was a girl,” the teacher said. “And so my parents gave me a name that girls typically have, clothes that girls typically wear, and until I was 18 years old, everyone thought I was a girl.”
