    Part of the bill is about transgender issues, but this part? Oh my. Does anyone have a link to an end times prophecy that mentions this kind of thing? Or is it listed in the DSM (psychological problems classification manual)?

    Don't identify as human? North Dakota schools don't want you

    A new bill would ban schools in the state from accommodating students who believe they are “any animal species other than human.”

    Six Republican members of the North Dakota Legislature introduced a bill Wednesday that would send a clear message to nonhuman-identified students: You’re not wanted in the Roughrider State.

    The two-page bill, which is primarily a measure seeking to prohibit schools in the state from accommodating transgender youths, includes a subsection aimed at a different — and theoretical — category of students.

    “A board of a school district, a public or private school, or a teacher in a public or private school may not … Adopt a policy establishing or providing a place, facility, school program, or accommodation that caters to a student’s perception of being any animal species other than human,"...
    ...
    This section of the bill appears to be connected to an urban myth about litter boxes in U.S. schools that spread among conservative Republicans ahead of the November election. An NBC News report published in October found this myth — about schools providing accommodations, like litter boxes, for children who identify as cats — to be untrue.

    While the North Dakota bill does not mention litter boxes, one of the bill's sponsors, state Rep. Lori VanWinkle, said her state does indeed have students who don't identify as human.

    The people who introduced this pointless bill are barking up the wrong tree.

    Wait... maybe they identify as dogs and bark accordingly? The plot thickens. :eek:

    This will backfire.

    If this passes, there will be students (otherkin or not) who claim to be a different species specifically to get out of school.

    Otherkin is nonsense and backlash against it is equally nonsensical. It's a non-issue and shouldn't get any attention whatsoever.

    While I do identify as a seven headed dragon with twelve wings and thirteen halos… I have vowed to embrace the nature of my current corporeal form as much as possible.

    That said.. the whole “furry” thing at times does get kind of ridiculous. Do what you Will in your private life, have fun and be as crazy as you like at parties or in the bedroom. However… when you come crawling into the gym in a dog suit, or showing up to class barking… I mean come on. You aren’t doing yourself any favors.

    My son would have got into trouble. At one stage he told me he self-identified as an attack helicopter.

    By the way, Rough Rider is a design of condom, isn't it? :D

    Good question. I think, but I think it might also be the style.

    Here they are: Rough Rider Condoms

    They strike me as a bit uncomfortable.

    Have any students actually requested such accomodations, or is this just another straw witch for the hunt?

    Hey, the lawmakers who came up with this bill are putting taxpayer money to good use. It's those commies who are overspending state money.

    Does identifying as a ghost count? If so, that would be my excuse to get out of school.

    Actually it's a traditional practice of some cultures.
