I was always under the impression that the purpose of preschools, was to teach children how to socialise and interact with other children. Turns out I was wrong. The real purpose of them is to be a sort of “reverse conversion therapy”, where heterosexual kids are brainwashed into becoming LGBT.
A University of Michigan instructor recently claimed that preschool classrooms are rife with “heteronormativity” that perpetuates “inequalities related to gender.”
Now just watch as she fails to back this up with any actual meaningful points, instead just relying on buzzwords and personal opinions.
Heidi M. Gansen, a Ph.D. student who teaches sociology at UMich, advanced these claims in a July 14 article that examines the prevalence of “heteronormativity” in a set of nine Michigan preschool classrooms she visited.
And this is why the value of a college education keeps on declining. The fact that a deranged Marxist ideologue like this woman is actually paid to teach people, is absolutely hilarious. Or at least, it would be hilarious, if it wasn’t so tragic. To any unfortunate student who was naive enough to sign up for this class, I just want to wish you good luck trying to pay off your tens of thousands of dollars of student loan debt, especially while working at the one job you’re likely to get, with a qualification such as this.
Defining “heteronormativity” as a culture in which “heterosexuality is always assumed, expected, ordinary, and privileged,” Gansen then argues that the issue is especially important to her research because preschools contribute to the “reproduction of inequalities pertaining to gender and sexuality,” such as gender roles and gendered feelings.
Does all that sound like a bunch of nonsensical, confusing, gibberish to you? If so, then good, that’s exactly the point. It’s supposed to be confusing for the average person to comprehend what this all even means. Basically, this woman is complaining that heterosexuality is presumed to be the “norm” in society, just because the vast majority of people, happen to be heterosexual. Because most people happen to be heterosexual, most other people will naturally presume that others are heterosexual, because statistically speaking, about 96% of people, will be, unless they’re specifically told otherwise. However, she seems to think that this way of interacting with one another marginalises the remaining 4% who aren’t, and therefore, we need to change our natural behaviour, and act as if there’s a 50/50 split between gay and straight people.
“Preschool is a good place to begin this examination, because practices that facilitate heteronormativity in classrooms become more engrained in later years of schooling,” she explains.
It’s a good place to begin the examination, because the best way to brainwash people into accepting your deranged world view, is to target them when they’re young, and their brains aren’t fully developed yet. That’s what it’s really all about. She wants to perpetuate her Cultural Marxist bollocksology, and who better to promote it to than young kids who haven’t yet developed the ability to think critically?
Accordingly, Gansen spent ten months observing childhood behavior at a set of nine Michigan preschools, finding numerous ways in which heterosexuality is “produced” and “enforced” by students and teachers.
Wait, I’m confused. Heterosexuality is “produced” now? But I was under the impression that one of the leading arguments of the LGBT rights lobby, was that you’re “born with your sexuality”, and that you can’t choose or change it. So I don’t understand how she can then make the claim that these teachers are “producing heterosexuality”.
In all seriousness, I’m of the believe that sexuality is determined by a mixture of nurture and nature, rather than just one or the other. I’ve heard it suggested before that both homosexuality and transgenderism is similar to diabetes, in that there’s a “Type 1” and a “Type 2”.
Much like with diabetes, someone with type 1 homosexuality or transgenderism, will be someone who was just born that way. I do believe that there are people who are just naturally born to be gay or transgender, and nothing in the environment will change that. However, just like how people get type 2 diabetes, due to their life experiences, I believe that life experiences in the time before puberty (and by extension, before sexuality has developed) can impact how a person’s sexuality develops. Just look at this study for example:
“Forty-six percent of the homosexual men in contrast to 7% of the heterosexual men reported homosexual molestation. Twenty-two percent of lesbian women in contrast to 1% of heterosexual women reported homosexual molestation. “
Look at the variance there. 46% of gay men interviewed for the study, claimed to experience homosexual molestation as a child, compared to just 7% of straight men, and there’s a similar variance between the experiences of lesbians and straight women. When looking at information like that, is it really hard to consider the possibility that having such experiences before they reached adolescence, and while their brains were still developing, could have warped their perceptions of sexuality somewhat. As I’ve said, I’m by no means suggesting that every single gay person is someone who was “turned gay from molestation” as a child, as I do believe that plenty of gay people are just born that way, but it’s still something that needs to be acknowledged.
And as for transgenderism, well consider this. In the most gender equal country on the planet, Sweden, the number of children looking to undergo sex changes is apparently doubling each year. Supporters will claim the numbers actually aren’t any higher than they ever were before, but it’s just less taboo now to go public about it, but I’m too cynical to agree. Personally, I believe that there has always existed a very tiny minority of people with gender dysphoria (the type 1s), but what we’re now seeing is a drastic increase in the type 2s, as a result of campaigns to normalise and encourage it. The fact that a country like Sweden of all places, is seeing this increase, only convinces me more that this increase is really a result of environmental stimuli and information that children are being exposed to, while they’re still growing and their brains are still developing.
Anyway, you might be wondering why I went off on that tangent about type 1 and type 2 LGBT people. Well, it connects back to this woman’s comments about schools “producing heterosexuality”. You see, despite the claims they make that all LGBT people are just “born that way”, I believe that they actually know damn well that this isn’t always the case. This woman is angry at schools for “producing heterosexuality”, because she knows that in some cases at least, it is possible to produce homosexuality and transgenderism, and for her own reasons, she wants to encourage that to happen. What her reasons are, I can only speculate. One thing I am certain of however, is that when she complains about “heteronormativity”, it isn’t because she cares about the well-being of any LGBT children.
Playing “house,” for instance, is one area in which Gansen observed “heteronormativity” in the in the preschool setting, noting that only girls would imitate mothers while only boys would play fathers.
Wow. Can you even begin to comprehend? That’s so sick and twisted. Girls role-playing as mothers and boys role-playing as fathers. This is so unfair, because it denies the existence of the millions of girls who become fathers, and the millions of boys who become mothers. Oh wait, I forgot. In real life, “father” is an exclusively male term, and “mother” is an exclusively female term, so that never actually happens.
If a girl asked to be the husband of the household, she would be quickly rebuffed by her peers, Gansen observed, lamenting that “children did not allow cross-gender roles.”
Girls can’t be husbands in real life. Get over it. Besides, while you’re complaining about this, did it ever once occur to you, to consider the feelings of the boy in this scenario? Maybe he doesn’t want to play the wife, and why should he be forced to?
Gansen also cited the reading of “traditional fairy tales,”
Which generations of children grew up hearing, and turned out fine…
engaging in “heteronormative play,”
Which generations of children grew up playing, and turned out fine…
and teachers suggesting that a boy has a “crush” on a girl as other ways in which gender-roles are perpetuated.
Maybe the boy does have a crush on the girl. Seriously, what’s the fucking problem here? These people are obsessed. I can guarantee that if the boy had a crush on another boy, this woman would be celebrating it. It’s just like with their weird desire to completely reverse all gender norms. If a woman chooses the role of a housewife, she’s attacked for doing so. If a man becomes a househusband, it’s celebrated. If a man is highly ambitious and aggressively competitive, he has “toxic masculinity”. If a woman is highly ambitious and aggressively competitive, she’s a “strong, confident woman”. Essentially, men are pathologised for acting like traditional men, women are pathologised for acting like traditional women, but both men and women are celebrated for acting like the traditional version of the opposite gender.
Meanwhile, teachers apparently make similar mistakes when they refer to “same-gender signs of affection or homosocial behaviors as friendly” as opposed to romantic, with Gansen arguing that the teacher’s interpretation of the friendship makes no concession for the fact that some students might be gay or queer.
See what I mean? It’s wrong for a teacher to think that a boy has a crush on a girl, but if the teacher fails to assume that a boy has a crush on his male friend, that’s also wrong.
As a solution, Gansen concludes by outlining “disruptive” approaches teachers can take, which include talking about the legality of gay marriage and showing “acceptance” when students participate in “actions that interrupt heteronormativity.”
A “solution” to a problem nobody ever asked to be solved.
Gansen finishes by complaining that even in the preschools with the most progressive teachers of all the ones she observed, “children still engaged in heteronormative practices with peers,” adding that “these findings demonstrate the importance of teachers actively working to disrupt heteronormativity, which is already ingrained in children by ages 3 to 5.”
Wow if that’s really the case, then how are there any gay people in the world at all?
Campus Reform reached out to Gansen for additional comment on her research, but did not receive a response in time for publication.
Of course not. People like this want to “talk at” us, rather than “talk to”. There’s no point even engaging with her. She should just be ridiculed.
