And here is the final step. From the black/white divide, the rich/poor disparity to:

No boys, girls, men, women...just obey and we'll all be equal. What do I say? We're not all equal, were never equal and are not meant to be equal.

Some people are straight, gay, TG, rich, poor, lazy, strong, weak, athletic, non-athletic, ugly, fat, skinny, tall, short, disfigured...some of us even smell funny. And thanks for all that we are because what a boring World we are entering into.

1. Avoid Using Gender to Divide and Address Students For generations teachers have separated students according to their gender for activities or to line up for lunch. However, this can leave some students feeling out-of-place, making them distracted or isolated and not able to focus on learning. For example, when lining students up for lunch, rather than saying, “Girls line up first,” try saying, “Anyone wearing a green shirt can line up,” or “If your name has an ‘E’ please line up.”

Similarly, instead of addressing your class using “boys” and “girls,” try something new. Words like “friends,” “students” or “scholars” allow all students to feel included, expand student vocabulary and model inclusive language and behavior for other students and teachers.

One comment from whatreallyhappened.com... : "Let's stop using the word "human" as that discriminates against our furry friends, and it's been a long time since we acted human anyway!
"

Next step? All citizens will wear the same non-gendered clothing of the same color depending in which social class you fall into.

Sums it all up IMO.

"In other news, the new gender friendly bathroom signs in our public schools are...um...Aw hell, I don't know what it is."

But then how can they be divided by their green shirts or lack thereof?

That was the joke made when someone complained about a costume piece that was offensive in an old MMO I used to play. If we removed everything about this that offended someone, we would all be playing featureless, shapeless gray things in indeterminate, shapeless gray clothing or maybe not because clothing might offend the nudists.

Depends on whether you take the red pill or the blue one I guess.

So we have these labels LBGT'___'LOLETC but "boy" and "girl" isn't acceptable? That's outrageous.

Yeah, they can label themselves to stand out and be special but the rest of us are just not worth a label.


Ironic isn't it?

I wanna label!

Funny thing is, I've been seeing online ads about how "unisex clothing" is the next big thing... just like you said. The powers that be (or SOMEONE writing the checks to those inpower) are pushing for this and actually expect regular folks to comply and go along with it.

Just start calling kids "Thing One" or "Thing Two".
After all, who doesn't love Dr. Seuss?

Personally, I'd address my class something to the effect :

"Young initiates. Someday you will be the Chosen One in the district of your choice. It will be up to you to keep things in order and your communities from falling into decay and disrepair. Some of you might have less visual positions, but you are all equally important. Learn your skills. Discover your trade and calling in life. You will be required to pass many tests this term. From the scholarly to the craft to athletic process. Some of you will excel at all, some will excel at one or two. Be not discouraged, but whatever you do.....do your best. Welcome, Young Initiates you are the Future of America."

Then I would hand out a questionnaire and encourage them to be as creatively HONEST with their answers, warning them that whatever they wrote as a response would forever dictate the future of their life's direction. Ah yes, Permanent Records. Forever joy.

They may only address one and another as "Brother (name)" or "Sister (name)".
It fortifies a sense of greater cohesion between individuals as part of a Greater Family.

At least, that's how things would go down in my classroom...IF I HAD ONE.

And for those wearing that line of clothing, the new bathroom sign:

In 100 years, at this rate, it will be a legally actionable offense to identify as 'straight' or 'cis-anything'.

Seems like an over sensationalized OP aimed to provoke a knee jerk reaction from a certain demographic.

But go ahead and get all worked up about a BS story.

I guess it will be the final step if it is law.

Does sound ridiculous though, taking it to far here.

You guys really need to drop the word "ban" from your lexicon until you go reread what it actually means. No one is pushing a ban in your article. They are suggestions for readers to make your time at school easier and happier for all. No one is FORCING anyone not to say anything, nor is anyone suggesting that it be forced.


HRC’s Welcoming Schools has compiled a list of tips to help start the school year. It’s easy to create a classroom where students aren’t limited based on gender stereotypes and where all students can reach their full potential this year.


I don't know about any of you, but I normally don't equate the word "tips" with "ban".
