Good morning and welcome to another day of insanity here on TheRalphRetort.com. I figured I would start off with something to lift your spirits. OK, no. I didn’t. Instead, let’s jump directly into the deep end of the crazy pool, courtesy of the Brighton and Hove City Council in the United Kingdom. Instead of letting kids be kids, they’ve sent out a questionnaire asking about the gender identiy of four-year-olds.

Not 7. Not 12. FOUR-YEAR OLDS.

Brighton and Hove City Council wrote to thousands of parents asking them to confirm their primary school places this week.

It wrote to parents urging them to support their child’s choice of “gender identity” and asked them to leave the form blank if the child had “another gender identity” altogether.

Brighton and Hove City Council reportedly wrote: “We recognise that not all children and young people identify with the gender they were assigned at birth or may identify as a gender other than male or female, however the current systems (set nationally) only record gender as male or female.

“Please support your child to choose the gender they most identify with.

“Or if they have another gender identity please leave this blank and discuss with your child’s school.”

Tory MP Andrew Bridgen told The Sun the letter was “utterly ridiculous”.

He said: “Schools should be teaching kids to read and write, not prompting them to consider gender swaps.”

Council Leader Warren Morgan defended the letter, tweeting: “I’m proud my council is leading on #Trans work. If it helps even one kid be themselves or tackle bullying, then headlines don’t matter.”

Don’t get me wrong, it wouldn’t really be any better if it was 7-year-olds, but the age here just highlights the absurdity of it all. As Rick Gervais just said on Twitter, he wanted to be a cat when he was 4. I think I would have preferred to be Batman, myself, but the point remains the same. Even entertaining this question with someone that young is the height of irresponsibility. I can’t imagine being proud of such a thing, like Ms. Morgan claims to be, but that’s the state of the world in the current year, 2016.

What did you want to be when you were 4? Did any of you question your gender identity? What would you do if your child was sent home with such a letter? So many questions, so little time. Personally, I might be looking to change my residence if my local councillors were as creepy as the ones in Brighton and Hove City. But, that’s just me. Sound off about what you might do if faced with such an utterly ridiculous situation.

  1. Form: What is your child’s gender identity?

    My response, “Are you off your nut, mate?”

  2. This is the madness that is allowed to seep into our lives. i believe that Brighton is run by the Greens, which just goes to show that those kooky Greens got nothing better to do then sexualise young children.

    1. The ranks of these progressive parties, think-tanks, NGOs and other orgs are filled w/ degenerate pedos in need of a helicopter ride.

  3. it was on BBC2 discussions today most of the callers thought it was nuts, even some trans person.
    another person apparently knew when they were 3, i call absolute bullshit it on that. kek who the fuck remembers anything from that age clearly

  4. I’d be more concerned with my prospective child’s vaccination, literacy skills and behavior than some dumbass “gender identity” bullshit. But I’m weird like that.

  5. Ok this is wonderful, so many things to note.

    Not only is the Government telling parents how to raise their kids, it’s telling them to support their kid’s gender choice, at 4 years old.
    And to top it all it follows the multiple genders (more than 2) line of thought.

    This being the UK, where they are already prosecuting people for rude social media posts, how long until they start bursting into people’s homes and taking their kids away because an “anonymous tip” told them the kid was being misgendered at home?

  6. How many four year olds can even pronounce the word “identity”?. A kid that age doesn’t even have an individual identity, their entire world view is intrinsically tied to their care givers and they don’t see themselves as separate or independent entities from their parents and/or family unit. They generally struggle to understand the concept of mortality and they certainly have no conception of sexuality.

    The education systems in the west are fucked. they’re getting overrun by crazy people who don’t even understand how children work.

  7. Today my 6 year old son was a brown Husky puppy called Oscar. Yesterday he was a snow leopard called Reuben.
