The state of Washington is going to start a program to teach gender identity to students from Kindergarten thru high school.

Looks pretty intense and perhaps a bit controversial as well.

Ways to "express" gender is part of the plan.

Looks like a long term agenda.


WA Schools to Teach Gender Identity Curriculum to Kindergarteners


alternate source



Starting in 2017, public schools in Washington State will have to teach children about gender identity beginning in kindergarten.


Beginning in Kindergarten, students will be taught about the many ways to express gender. Gender expression education will include information about the manifestations of traits that are typically associated with one gender. Crossdressing is one form of gender expression.

Third graders will be introduced to the concept of gender identity. These children will be taught that they can choose their own gender.

Fourth graders will be expected to “define sexual orientation,” which refers to whether a person identifies as heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual; they’ll also be taught about HIV prevention. Children in fourth grade will be told that they can choose their sexual orientation.

Fourth and fifth graders will learn about the relativity of gender roles and why such roles are social constructs that are not inherent to who we are as male or female human beings.

Seventh graders will be expected to “distinguish between biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.”

High school students will critically “evaluate how culture, media, society, and other people influence our perceptions of gender roles, sexuality, relationships, and sexual orientation.”

Why are we screwing up an entire generation of children to appease 0.01% of the population?

This couldn't be dubious social engineering at work, could it?

Naaaaah. I'm sure they really have the best interests of the kids in mind. I'm sure they really want them to be able to form healthy, meaningful relationships with other people in their lives.

That's wonderful! I think it is great that gender is discussed long before the issues of sexuality are involved because they aren't the same thing

You do realize both of your sources are from recognized hate groups? It figures.

More Right Wing Family Council type Fear Mongering

However, children definitely need to learn to accept and not discriminate against those who are different - - and those who will be a part of their world growing up.

SNOPES



WHAT'S TRUE: Washington State has released updated curriculum guidelines in 2016 that include directives regarding gender and gender expression.

WHAT'S FALSE: No part of the document suggests that children in Kindergarten will be taught about transgender issues.

Anyone on ATS who doesn't know who Family Council is and what they do - - has been living under a rock.

My ten year old kid is mature enough to recognise the difference between perverts and gays, transgendered and what not.

Seems to me alot of suposed adult poster on ats need to mature a bit faster.

Yes the evil commie muslims overlords will turn our kids gay and transgendered.

Typical mr X bs

LOL

The topic is about the State of Washington and its learning standards.

You always attack the members here to no avail.

I guess teaching math and English and science and history wasn't enough because the US ranks almost 50th in education.

:/

The educational system has to take over the role of parent now.

But WA State has the document right?

It does mention the claims of your supposed biased sources.

What exactly about this could screw kids up? It's no different from teaching kids sex-ed from an early age.

Sounds to me like you just want the right to judge people openly without criticism being a repercussion. If you judge someone unfairly then you should have to deal with people criticizing you about it because your judgement is a criticism of another person to begin with.

I think this is a great idea and will maybe teach some kids that we should accept other people's differences and wishes.

You don't think teaching boys it's ok to be girls and girls it's ok to be boys could screw them up in the head?

I don't even know what to say anymore. It's literal insanity.

You're a reptilian from another planet, aren't you?

Kids are in school about 5 to 6 hours 5 days a week. Those not going to after school care.

What exactly do you suggest, treat them as if they are robots?

SHOCKING - - they are in a Social Environment about 30 hours every week - - without parents.

Let's just ignore that, OK.
