As we start the 2019/2020 school year in Washington State we will see the 2nd attempt by Democrats and the State Superintendent of Schools Chris Reykdal to pass legislation that will REQUIRE teaching gender identity starting in kindergarten. HB 5395 was stopped this past spring when hundreds of parents turned out in Olympia…however…they are getting ready to try again. When Mr. Reykdal ran for State Superintendent of Schools in 2016 he made it clear he’s a “social warrior” and fully supports LGBTQ’s agenda and, as part of his reforms, wants gender discussion to be part of the sexual education curriculum…which will start in kindergarten.
Today we bring you an article that cites a recent situation where a teacher decided that “he” should teach students about gender. He handed out a popular visual called the “gender unicorn” and asked them to complete it. You need to know that the “gender unicorn” has been used locally in Southwest Washington. Is it being used in your school district? You need to ask.
Give this article a read. We came across it mrcNewsBusters written by Brent Bozell and Tim Graham
We have shared other articles on the subject of “gender” in public schools as part of the curriculum efforts. Prior to this article we have had twelve (12) you can read at: https://swweducation.org?cat=1367 We ran a specific article about local use of the “gender unicorn” in the Vancouver School District: https://swweducation.org?p=3855
Public schools are reopening for business across America, meaning it’s time to get back to reading, writing, arithmetic….and revolution.
As usual in matters such as these, California is leading the way.
On the first day of classes at Denair Middle School near Modesto science teacher Luis Davila Alvarado handed out worksheets from a transgender advocacy group titled “The Gender Unicorn” asking students about their “gender identity,” “gender expression,” and their sexual and emotional attractions.
These are children. And yet the teacher did not ask permission to hand this out. Most parents were outraged. The school estimated about 50 children received the worksheet. It turns out Alvarado was educating the children about his own life. He declared he rejects the term “Mr.” and prefers to be addressed with the newfangled “Mx.,” pronounced “Mix.” A school official quickly put a stop to it, but the damage was done.
In California, waiting until middle school for this boatload of propaganda is actually inappropriate! In May, the California Board of Education established a set of guidelines insisting schools should begin discussing “gender identity” in kindergarten. “While students may not fully understand the concepts of gender expression and identity,” the guidelines insist, “some children in kindergarten and even younger have identified as transgender or understand they have a gender identity that is different from their sex assigned at birth.” Schools apparently must leap to address the “harm of negative gender stereotypes.”
Public schools aren’t just undermining parents with the curriculum. When children “decide” they “might” be transgender, parents better not object or else they will be treated as a threat to their own children’s well-being.
On August 12, USA Today published a chilling op-ed from Jay Keck, a parent in the Chicago suburbs, about how his autistic teenaged daughter – who “showed no signs” of being unhappy with her gender — suddenly decided in 2016 that she was male and wanted to be addressed with male pronouns.
She first “came out” at school, and the school immediately addressed her with male pronouns and provided access to a gender-neutral bathroom. When Keck and his wife found out, they insisted the school address their daughter by her legal name – and they were ignored. They met with an assistant superintendent, who asserted the school had to “follow the law” – a non-binding directive from the Obama administration which was repealed by Team Trump.
According to Keck, surprise, surprise: the ACLU has sent threatening letters to schools telling them that “students have the constitutional right to share or withhold information about their sexual orientation or gender identity from their parents, teachers, and other parties.”
Then the real nightmare kicked in. Put yourself in the position of the Keck family.
Keck said his daughter told him that the school social worker was advising her about halfway houses. “The social worker confirmed this when I scheduled a meeting with him to discuss it. This felt like a horrifying attempt to encourage our daughter to run away from home.”
When Keck had his daughter evaluated by a psychologist approved by the school district, he said “it was very clear that our daughter’s sudden transgender identity was driven by her underlying mental health conditions, but would only share his thoughts off the record, because he feared the potential backlash.” When his daughter graduated high school, parental wishes that her birth name would be announced were again ignored.
This growing gender-bending orthodoxy is what Pope Benedict called the “dictatorship of relativism,” or, if you prefer, “the tyranny of tolerance.” Dissent – even from parents – is being condemned as bigotry, cruelty, and hate speech.
This will not stop until the nuclear family is destroyed. Or until parents stand up as one and declare a commitment to destroy this movement.
