You bigot. You assume she's still a dog just because he once was one.
Well phrased!

Used to be Chaim's brother. Now Chaim's sister.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

It's real. It was posted on Facebook

Real because someone posted it on Facebook allegedly in his name?

Those were two separate statements, where it was posted was not intended to be a proof of authenticity.

I am obviously not willing to put my name onto this to vouch for the authenticity, but I will say that the author of the letter did reply to the post and give permission for it to be shared publicly.

I obviously have a DDF account but I would like to not be associated with this under my real name.
In what regards are you associating yourself with this ?

I know the author and many people know that I know him, and I would like the ability to comment freely on the issue in general, should an intelligent discussion appear.

I strongly disagree with the opinions voiced in the letter but I respect the author and have a basic understanding of some of the events that led up to this, and I know that he has not had an easy time.

What are the events surrounding this, aside from what he wrote that he has a transgender child?

I'm not sure why this is the main point here...

He did not post anything else publicly and I do not feel it is appropriate to share additional details.

What is there to be afraid of, when commenting using your real username ?

If people know him under his username...duh! Why did this whole thread turn into a "bash-the-OP-for-not-using-his-real-username" thread? Give him a break!

Okay, let's discuss.

He wants a yeshiva, whose job it is to teach Torah, to accept and make special accommodations for a child who is in open violation of the Torah.

I think this thread is too personal about an individual and should be deleted.
