Do not be surprised, butYoung children are being taught that they can choose to be a boy or a girl -- or both.
Boys, for example, should be comfortable wearing girls' clothes and nail polish, etc. And there aren't just two genders, there can be a range. And, of course, the school does not allow parents to opt their kids out.
Redwood Heights Elementary School in Oakland, CA has hired a "gender coach" from "Gender Spectrum," a radical gender group, to go into the classrooms. As Fox News observed, Gender Spectrum's mission is to "create more gender-sensitive environments for kids." As the San Jose Mercury News reported:
On Monday morning, children in Cynthia Bagby's kindergarten class discussed whether there were, in fact, "girl colors" and "boy colors." Some giggled when Joel Baum, the trainer from Gender Spectrum, read "My Princess Boy," a nonfiction children's book by Cheryl Kilodavis about her son who liked to wear dresses and a tiara.
Not surprisingly, in these tough economic times the program is being paid for by the California Teachers Association (CTA).
As the Fox News report shows, the effort to intimidate any criticism of the programis in full gear. The program is being sold as a "necessity" to help kids, and anyone against it is being labeled as someone who wants to allow kids to commit suicide. This Fox report below features a man who is "the legal director for the Center for Lesbian Rights (at left below, and who we suspect is heavily hormone-induced "transgender" woman) defending this elementary school program. As it turns out, she/he(?) appears to be lying more than just a bit, about what it really is.
How dangerous is this power of suggestion to young minds? Very.The real question is, what can you do about it?
Nothing like this could stand on its own, even in California or Massachusetts. Thus, we see the same old lies, misrepresentations, skewed facts, and disinformation being used to silence critics -- which neither public authorities nor the mainstream press ever seriously question.
Phony reasons meant to intimidate. We're told that these "gender" programs must be implemented in elementary schools--without an opt-out ability--because:
- Parents at home aren't doing their job, aren't supporting kids' choices, and are even throwing kids out of the house if they say they are "transgender".
- This is absolutely necessary to stop bullying, which "transgender" kids suffer from more than others.
- We must have respect for differences.
- "Transgender" kids are committing suicide, and these programs must be done school-wide to stop that.
- We need everyone to feel welcome and safe.
- (And our favorite:) If you're against this, then you're in favor of teaching children to hate.
As the Mecrury News reported:
"Really, it's about reducing and dispelling stereotypes and prejudices so kids can show up to school and feel like they can learn and thrive without being stigmatized or teased," said Brett Bradshaw, a Redwood Heights parent who is also chairman of the school's LGBTQ Affinity group.
Who ever heard of an elementary school having an official "LGBTQ Affinity" group? Don't laugh. Yes, it's madness. But it's probably closer than you think. This kind of thing is common for activist parents to do to push agendas in their schools.
