What sparked the following epic and righteous rant? More disturbing news from our public schools.
Weasel Zippers reported on the story, including this snippet from CBN News:
The workshop for 13 and 14-year-old girls focused on homosexuality and gender identity. They were also taught words such as “pansexual” and “genderqueer.”
Parents say their daughters were told to ask one another for a kiss and they say two girls were told to stand in front of the class and pretend they were lesbians on a date.
“She told me, ‘Mom we all get teased and picked on enough. Now I’m going to be called a lesbian because I had to ask another girl if I could kiss her,’” parent, Mandy Coon, told reporters.
It was an anti-bullying presentation, natch. And parents were not given the option to opt their children out. In fact, they weren’t even warned that this “workshop” was being given, according to parents. The superintendent claimed it was “focused on improving culture, relationships, communication and self-perception.” Further, the workshop was reportedly organized with the help of Bard College students. Case closed.
But, hey, they may give notice to parents in the future.
Like the foul Melissa Harris-Perry, evidently they believe “all your children belong to us.” Like Sarah Palin said, it is the new “you didn’t build that”: You didn’t birth that.
Keep your hands off.
Ace of Spades was outraged and rightly so. Pedagogy this.
Exactly! Aren’t we to look to the smarty pants and oh-so-cultured Europeans? What happened to that whole “citizen of the world” thing? It must include schooling.
Another Twitter user points out an eerily apt quote.
That seems to be the plan, doesn’t it? Our schools have become places of indoctrination, not learning.
Ace of Spades HQ has more:
A small taste, but you really need to read the whole thing:
You cannot demand that someone afford you the right of liberty while in the same movement stealing that very thing from everyone else.
How about this for an insane idea: Just as people have the right to be gay, other people retain their right to not be gay.
Or is that to “extreme” a position?
Seriously, read the rest.
And don’t forget the words of advice about school choice.
