Should transgenderism be taught as an alternative lifestyle in the schools?

Certainly not. They should be focusing on teaching pupils have to read, write,and add up before anything else.
Most of them now are as thick as bricks. Yet go on to get "Degrees". No wonder the world is in a mess.

not as an alternative, but one of many different genders and sexual orientations. education should not be positive or negative education, it should be neutral education.
this is what having a world-outlook means; positive, negative, neutral, outlooks all have different connotations.
tinging and coloring education has often been pointed-out to be racist politics or racist religion.
the gay community LBTG+ needs to have equality and this educational representation, as a gender identity.
pushing a sex-stereotype onto everyone lacks insight into what it is to be "human".
modern "psychology of sex and gender" identifies over 147-different self-identities. human being form their own identity, including consciousness of life. we are aware of this since s. freud recognized the existence of the subconscious and the oedipal complex about 100-years ago. psychology has progressed quite a lot in 100-years.
today, "sociology" recognizes gender identity, gender roles, and gender-membership, sexual-membership, sex-roles, and sex-identity.
but psychology explains the development of our own personalities and the formation of our consciousness, as well as observing that there are 147-different self-identities.
there are seven "gender-identities": heterosexual, bi-sexual, homosexual, transsexual, inter-sexed, omni-sexual, and a-sexual.
there are three types of self-identity based on sex-genitalia: male, female, and inter-sexed. these are known as " sexual-identity".
when we think "sexual-orientation", it is often based on attraction to a gender identity, so these are used to identify seven types of sexual-orientation: heterosexual, homosexual, bi-sexual, transsexual, inter-sexed, omni-sexual, and a-sexual.
on a punnet-square we can organize these into 147-types of sex-&-gender, as well as observe in our own society these 147-different types of identity.
7-types of gender X 7-types of sexual-orientation X 3 types of sexual identity = 147 types of self-identity.

ABSOLUTELY NOT! That whole culture needs to be shoved back under the rock it was hidden under.

No. It should be taught in biology class or sex education by someone who actually knows the subject.

No need to TEACH about any alternate lifestyle, other than perhaps one lesson explaining that they do exist. No need to include LGBT in THAT lesson though, as they are not lifestyle choices. The LGBT discussions belong within basic sex education lesson plans.

Transgenderism is just part of the human condition. Children need to be taught to treat all people with respect, even if they are different than yourself.

It doesn't need to be taught. Kids pick that up in the 3rd or 4th grade by the grape vine.

no because its not a "lifestyle." people should just be allowed to know that trans people exist, and that's that. if someone isn't trans, they won't suddenly become trans just knowing about it; they'd just become more accepting. which is a good thing, contrary to what some of you cretins here seem to think.

There could be a gender studies elective course offered in public schools. I have no problem with that.

No, because it is not an 'alternative lifestyle'.
