Seems to me, and I submit I could be wrong not being omniscient, that any title/label is meant to separate. Not bring together...


Of course. It's a means of identification. I don't know if the movie Single White Female would have been as been as successful as Single White Person.

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


Perfectly stated.

Now why have we allowed this insanity to take over?

I tripped up on a show on Hulu the other day, called Senses 8. Homosexuality and group sex seems to be its primary theme. I pray no children or teens watch this show.

Then again maybe that is the plan. Remove the titillation, the taboo and the excitement from sex, so they can make that final leap to total mind control.

That sounds suspiciously like Common Core math, Beezzer.

And I thought you were against it.

Does it really bother you to use other ways besides "boys and girls" to split kids into groups?

Why you care so much about their bits?

Or how they feel about their bits.

Worry about THEIR BRAINS.

If we're ever invaded by alien forces trying to take over the planet, we have to be able to get over the fact that not all of 'em are evil and maliciously hell bent on overrunning the planet into a big fractal-gendered paradise of chaos and debauchery.

Ya know, I'm one of these people who doesn't "act" like my genitalia and social standards prefers to dictate....big freaking deal. I do my part for the greater good in my own way. At least I try. I usually keep my opinions to myself over issues like this, but it's starting to get to me.

I agree that we shouldn't "bow before the muti-fractal sexuality" because I think humans are too focused on sex, sexual identity and sexual roles. The world is full of people who abuse others for being different and not living up to their preferred porn fascinations and fantasies.

I don't like living in that kind of world....and guess what....a lot of other people don't like it either.

They're just coping and dealing with it differently than I do.

So it goes.

This isn't Ken and Barbie world, this is freaking Earth.

I bet you have a problem with those amphibians who spontaneously change genders when the population get imbalanced or do you not understand the big picture and how Nature Finds A Way.

Does not being in control frighten you guys?

Does the thought that there are forces out there in the Universe (and here on this planet) that you don't understand completely terrify you to the point of needing a Mickey Mouse night light in order to sleep soundly at night?

Seriously.
Think about it.

It's a control issue isn't it?

Maybe it won't harm, I don't know. I'm not omniscient.

I'd kind of like to know, in your opinion, what is the difference? You're still labeling...just using differing criteria. In what way is that an improvement over boy, girl? It's still grouping by differences.

...and not so rare as you might think. There's always a noisy minority that won't shut it, while the rest quietly go on living and let live.

What's insane about how other people refer to themselves?

What's insane about using alternative descriptions of separating kids into groups?

I'm not following your logic ... are you saying that if homosexual sex is no longer taboo, then everyone is going to want to do it?

Yeah, I'm old enough to remember some folks separating whites and blacks.

You want division?

Separate people into groups.

Change nothing and let them continue to be so.

Yes, there are kids who identify in other ways, so why take away all identity? I thought we were supposed to make it safe for them to identify NOT make the world a place where no one can.

I don't see how this takes away identifying with anything? What it does take away is being identified as something by someone else based on external perceptions while discounting an individual's self-identification.

Maybe I don't understand your point?

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.

www.hrc.org...

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."

Perhaps we can just start addressing each other as "comrade" and be done with it.

And when the teacher stands in front of the room and says, "Ok boys and girls!" Who is possibly being divided or left our by that? Surely no matter how someone identifies, they are covered in that statement one way or another.

Not every use of boy or girl is meant to divide.

And not only that, but here we are trying to celebrate all the so-called diversity of gender and sexual orientation, but now we are being told that it's wrong to point all that out by using labels?

Cognitive dissonance.

Either we are different in these ways or we aren't, but we need to make that decision and go one way or the other and stop demanding that people should understand and respect all this diversity out one side of our mouth and then start agitating to shut that vocabulary and its use down with the other.

Life is too precious a gift to give away so easily!
You must stay alive so you too can argue over silly crap like gender pronouns while we pollute our way out of existence and the rich rape everyone.
Get with the times brother!

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".


BTW, it's the title of the article. We are to use the actual title on ATS. Or should that change to make it more PC?

"1. Avoid Using Gender to Divide and Address Students"

Nice way to say we want it banned isn't it?

Now, what about those intersex individuals (by the way, the percentage of people who differ physically from male and/or female is 1 in 100)?

Small number, I know, that 1%. Probably not enough to worry about, right?

Yet, 10 percent of the population is left-handed, and we have left-handed desks and the world hasn't fallen apart.

I just don't see the harm in the suggestion. Kids who are intersex are going to have enough problems in their lives.

I'm gay and I even think this is stupid. I don't even like being lumped into the LGBT community. Being gay is not all of who I am, its not my total identity. I don't always agree with what they are pushing.

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.

SAD


Isn't this what Jaden Smith, Will Smith's son is pushing? Maybe it is just a rumor, but I heard somewhere that he is into wearing dresses, and pushing the asexual agenda.

His father is supporting or should I say endorsing, maybe even investing, in his lifestyle plans.
