This is just getting fucking ridiculous now.
One of the nation’s largest public school systems is preparing to include gender identity to its classroom curriculum, including lessons on sexual fluidity and spectrum – the idea that there’s no such thing as 100 percent boys or 100 percent girls.
You see, everything we’ve known and learned about sexual differences over the hundreds of thousands of years that our species has existed have apparently been all wrong. We’re not going to show the scientific evidence that proves this. We’re just going to say it and claim that anyone who disagrees is just a hate filled bigot.
Fairfax County Public Schools released a report recommending changes to their family life curriculum for grades 7 through 12. The changes, which critics call radical gender ideology, will be formally introduced next week.
I will say that at least this is being aimed at older children (from ages 12 and up) rather than at kindergartners like these types normally try to target. Hopefully older kids will be less easily indoctrinated by this insanity.
“The larger picture is this is really an attack on nature itself – the created order,” said Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council.
“Human beings are created male and female. But the current transgender ideology goes way beyond that. They’re telling us you can be both genders, you can be no gender, you can be a gender that you make up for yourself. And we’re supposed to affirm all of it.”
I completely agree with this guy. It’s completely ridiculous to expect people to just roll over and accept this insanity. As I’ve pointed out time and time again, even if you believe in that ridiculous “sex and gender are different” argument, your biological sex is still an undisputed, objective, reality. A small minority of people feel as if their “gender identity” doesn’t sync with their biological sex, and as far as I’m concerned, that’s fine. They shouldn’t be picked on for it and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect as fellow human beings. However, pretending that it’s anything other than an abnormality and abolishing the whole concept of gender altogether just so we don’t risk hurting their feelings is completely ridiculous.
The plan calls for teaching seventh graders about transgenderism and tenth graders about the concept that sexuality is a broader spectrum — but it sure smells like unadulterated sex indoctrination.
Get a load of what the kids are going to be learning in middle school:
“Students will be provided definitions for sexual orientation terms heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality; and the gender identity term transgender,” the district’s recommendations state. “Emphasis will be placed on recognizing that everyone is experiencing changes and the role of respectful, inclusive language in promoting an environment free of bias and discrimination.”
I think children need to learn proper sex education at some point. If they don’t learn about the consequences of acting on their biological urges without the proper precaution, things can go bad.
Eighth graders will be taught that individual identity “occurs over a lifetime and includes the component of sexual orientation and gender identity.”
“Individual identity will also be described as having four parts – biological gender, gender identity (includes transgender), gender role, and sexual orientation (includes heterosexual, bisexual, and homosexual).”
The district will also introduce young teenagers to the “concept that sexuality is a broader spectrum.” By tenth grade, they will be taught that one’s sexuality “develops throughout a lifetime.”
“Emphasis will be placed on an understanding that there is a broader, boundless, and fluid spectrum of sexuality that is developed throughout a lifetime,” the document states. “Sexual orientation and gender identity terms will be discussed with focus on appreciation for individual differences.”
This on the other hand just seems unnecessarily confusing. If there are transgender kids dealing with specific transgender issues, they should deal with them with their parents and with their doctors. The school can still provide a supporting role for these children, but they should have respect for other students and their parents by not forcing them to have to deal with these issues as well.
As you might imagine – parents are freaking out.
“Parents need to protect their kids from this assault,” said Andrea Lafferty, president of Traditional Values Coalition. “Who could imagine that we are in this place today – but we are.”
Last week, the school board voted to include gender identity in the district’s nondiscrimination policy – a decision that was strongly opposed by parents.
I don’t agree with the parents condoning discrimination against transgender students, but I do understand that they want to protect their own children. I’ve never understood why there can’t be a middle ground reached that is, not bullying transgender students but at the same time, not changing everything about society just to conform to them.
Lafferty, who led the opposition to the nondiscrimination policy, warned that the district is moving towards the deconstruction of gender.
“At the end of this is the deconstruction of gender – absolutely,” she told me. “The majority of people pushing (this) are not saying that – but that clearly is the motivation.”
Unfortunately, she isn’t just scaremongering. The abolition of gender is indeed the end goal of all of this. We need only look at our old pal Sweden to see the future.
School Board spokesman John Torre told the Washington Times the proposed curriculum changes have nothing to do with last week’s vote to allow boys who identity as girls to use the bathrooms and locker rooms of their choice.
He would have us believe it was purely coincidental.
To make matters worse, Lafferty contends parents will not be able to opt their children out of the classes because the lessons will be a part of the mandatory health curriculum.
That is ridiculous. What happened to the good old days when schools were used to teach children useful things like reading, writing, maths, science, history etc? Now, they’re just used to indoctrinate kids into following ideologies, instead of giving them the chance to develop naturally and form their own ideologies.
However, Torre told me that parents will indeed be able to opt out of those classes “including the sexual orientation and gender identity lessons.”
“They are not being forthright with the information,” Lafferty said. “They are not telling people the truth. They are bullying parents. They are intimidating and they are threatening.”
Of course they’re bullying and intimidating. That’s what these far left thugs always do. They’re completely incapable of using logic and reason to get their arguments across (and they always have been right back to the time when their ideological comrades, the Bolsheviks came to power in Russia). They always have to resort to bullying tactics whether it be hate speech legislation (thus getting opponents put in prison), ruining the careers of their opponents, or just by using words like transphobic, sexist, racist etc to vilify their opponents. I know people refer to these people as liberals, but I don’t think that’s a fair assessment, because the classic definition of a liberal was someone who is open minded and willing to try out new ideas… ie, the exact opposite of what these people are like. They are some of the most hate filled and close minded people out there, so it’s ridiculous to refer to them as liberals.
I must confess that I’m a bit old school on sex education. I believe that God created male and female. My reading of the Bible does not indicate there were dozens of other options.
OK…I think this is a bit much now. I’m willing to respect religious beliefs, but when it comes to making arguments, I think religion is as irrelevant as political correctness. Hard science is all that matters.
However, I’m always open to learning new things – so I asked the school district to provide me with the textbooks and scientific data they will be using to instruct the children that there are dozens and dozens of possible genders.
Oh, I stand corrected. Fair play to you. I’m glad to see that unlike those who follow the religion of political correctness, you’re willing to believe in possibilities beyond what your religion tells you is the truth. That’s refreshing to see.
Here’s the reply I received from Torre:
“Lessons have not been developed for the proposed lesson objectives,” he stated. “Because of the need to develop lessons, the proposed objectives would not be implemented until fall 2016.”
In other words – they don’t have a clue.
Of course they don’t because it’s not based on actual logic or reason. It’s all just feelings and reactionary nonsense, rather than carefully considering the consequences of their actions.
And the Family Research Council’s Sprigg said there’s a pretty good reason why they can’t produce a textbook about fluidity.
“It’s an ideological concept,” he told me. “It’s not a scientific one.”
He warned that Fairfax County’s planned curriculum could be harmful to students.
“It’s only going to create more confusion in the minds of young people who don’t need any further confusion about sexual identity,” he said.
The board will introduce the changes on May 21. Lafferty said she hopes parents will turn out in force to voice their objections.
And this is exactly what I’ve been saying the past few months every time I’ve written on this topic.
