The New York Post is reporting Saturday that an elementary school on Staten Island has scrapped its traditional father-daughter dance this coming weekend over new Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Student Guidelines from the Department of Education.

In a March 2017 policy update, the Department of Education ordered schools to eliminate any gender-based activities unless they serve a clear educational purpose.
“We have clear guidelines in place that require school-related events to be inclusive of all students,” said DOE spokeswoman Miranda Barbot.
“Father-daughter dances inherently leave people out. Not just because of transgender status, just life in general,” said Jared Fox, the DOE’s LGBT community liaison. “These can be really uncomfortable and triggering events.”
Trying to figure out if this is a joke or not. Wow. https://t.co/XnugpVhLrP

Shutting down father-daughter dances is now a necessary part of the fight for gender equality. But it’s for the greater good, guys… https://t.co/qiHPZmm02G
