School nurse suspended after revealing 11-yr-old on puberty blockers, outing trans-complicit teachers

Kathleen Cataford, a 77-year-old school nurse in Connecticut, was suspended after posting a message to social media revealing that a young student was on puberty blockers, while outing another dozen students as “non-binary” according to an exclusive story by the Daily Mail.

The comment, which is being deemed “transphobic” by critics, was posted as a warning to parents. Cataford claims that the school teachers, as well as social workers were trying to keep the children’s gender identification a secret from the parents.

“Buyer beware. Investigate the school system curriculum … CT is a very socially liberal, gender confused state … As a public school nurse, I have an 11yo female student on puberty blockers and a dozen students identifying as non-binary, all but two keeping this a secret from their parents with the help of teachers, SSW and administration,” Cataford wrote.

“Teachers and SSW are spending 37.5 hours a week influencing your children, not necessarily teaching your children what YOU think is being taught,” she continued. “Children are introduced to this confusion in kindergarten by the school SW who ‘teaches’ social and emotional regulation and school expectations.”

“Science tells us that a child’s brain continues development into the early 20s, hence laws prohibiting alcohol, tobacco, vaping and [cannabis]. But it’s okay to inject hormones into confused prepubescent children and perform genital mutilating surgery on adolescents! How incongruent is that thinking!” Cataford concludes.

Unfortunately for Cataford, the mother of the aforementioned 11-year-old came across the comment and reported it to Hartford School District officials. She also confirmed the contents of the comment to Daily Mail, but refused to discuss the matter further, citing privacy concerns.

Hartford Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Leslie Torres-Rodriguez condemned Cataford’s remarks in a statement on the incident.

“Hartford Public Schools strives to provide an inclusive environment where all students feel seen, valued, respected, and heard. We uphold all of our staff to a high standard, entrusting them to be caretakers and leaders in the community. We as a school district are responsible for the health, well-being, social and emotional development, and safety of ALL of the children entrusted to our care. It is our responsibility to support our students’ growth, personal experiences, and social-emotional development,” it reads in part

An investigation into the comments will determine whether Cataford is allowed to keep her job at Richard J Kinsella Magnet School.

Despite the negative response from her own employer, Cataford is enjoying much more support on social media, where like-minded folks have banded together in refusing to condemn her words:
