All this SJW business has actually increased bullying and violence all through out the states.

You actually have to be really young.


I'm gonna go with that.

I've watched the world changing for too many years. Distorted vision is not coming from me.

That's exactly what this is - recruiting!!! Sadly, a lot of parents will leave their kids in those schools.

It should always be the parents who teach their children, and children 5 years old shouldn't be taught about sex, nor transexualism... They are children... But that choice should rest on the parents and not the State.



Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda.

Sex Ed is taught in public school because parents chose for their kids to be ignorant.

Recruitment??? Really?

So, if we teach kids about math, we're trying to turn them into accountants?

Sometimes, what passes for logic here is stupefying.

Gender identities exist. Discussing it in school might make someone, somewhere, sometime have a bit more informed conversation on the subject than we've seen here.

The idea that knowing that different gender identities might make a kid different points to a fundamental ignorance about the way things are.

It is certainly not because of that... It is happening because for decades socialist ideals have been implemented in order for the elites to gain all control. You don't see it because you don't want to "think outside your little box".


Gender Regimes During and After Socialism: Bulgarian Women’s Experiences of Employment

Conference Proceedings – Thinking Gender – the NEXT Generation
UK Postgraduate Conference in Gender Studies
21-22 June 2006, University of Leeds, UK
e-paper no. 27
Gender Regimes
During

Socialism: Bulgarian Women’s
Experiences of Employment
Mariya Stoilova

Abstract:
The paper explores the gender regimes in Bulgaria during the periods of state socialism and the post-1989 democratisation with a particular focus on women’s employment. Discussion of continuity and change in the regimes illuminates the potential positive and negatives outcomes for women’s circumstances and positioning in Bulgarian society. The paper draws upon democratisation literature on gender and findings
from resent qualitative research and outlines where women stand in relation to historical change and how their generation influences their experiences, senses of self, and agency.

But such "social justice" never started with socialism, socialism simply takes over and imposes the will of the State by using whatever "social reform" is en vogue at the times.


Marxism, feminism and women's liberation

socialistworker.org...

What you don't know, because you have been indoctrinated to think the opposite, is that the fight for women's rights in the United States started with Republican women. Yes, Republican women like Susan B. Anthony... But this movement was taken over by socialists like Margaret Sanger, because that's what socialists do.

Now women's rights are a thing of the past and transgender rights are more important, and of course the State has to indoctrinate the children from an early age about this life style, and the State has to impose more mandates to show that the State controls it all, even what people can think and how they should live...

No, having the State teach children about sex, etc, is how the State imposes it's will over parents. The State is more important than how, and what parents should teach their children is what they are showing...

Don't you love being presented with sources that have NOTHING to do with the discussion at hand?

Thankfully, the attitudes of the public are rapidly changing. Acceptance of different gender identities i.e. accepting people for who they are, is on the rise.

We've seen the same progressive movement in equal rights for more than a century. We have been a mixed economy from the beginning of the United States. The very idea of "public education" was opposed by some, who have an interest in keeping people ignorant.

As you point out, times are changin'. Some people always hate that fact.

Yes, we all know the paranoid reasons for getting rid of public education that passes for reality in the spheres of wingnuttery.

You apparently believe that that parents who wish their children to remain ignorant or who wish to inculcate their kids in backwards superstitions should be allowed to do so. The majority disagrees with you.

However, you do have the option to educate your children as you wish. Public school is not compulsory, hasn't been for about 50 years.

Really? showing that in the past socialism has also used "other social reforms to impose the will of the state" has nothing to do with the State now imposing once again it's will over people's?...

Euphemisms and doublespeak, the same tools used by "socialist/Marxists" in the past being used today to "impose once again the will of the State". What's new under the sun? Nothing. History is once again repeating itself.

Yes, I'm saying that presenting information that happens to include the word "gender" in pre-and-post Communist Bulgaria (but has to do with women in the workplace) has ZERO to do with whether kids are taught about gender identity in school in the USA in 2016.

Further, the obsessive false equivalence of anything performed by a government with socialism/communism is absurd.

Another thing the Marxist in power in government and his thugs wants to change...


The fate of Uwe and Hannelore Romeike – along with their six children – now rests with the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. In 2010 an immigration judge granted the family political refuge, but the Dept. of Homeland Security objected and argued they don’t deserve asylum.

Neither the Justice Dept. nor the Dept. of Homeland Security returned calls seeking comment.

The Obama administration is basically saying there is no right to home school anywhere,” said Michael Farris, founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association. “Its an utter repudiation of parental liberty and religious liberty.

Americans Warned: Home Schoolers Stripped of Rights

BERLIN -- Recently, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has said that home schooling is not a parent's right. It is a statement some are saying should frighten American parents.

Nations like Germany and Sweden show that when governments take away home schooling rights, it's a slippery slope to no parental rights.

America the Refuge or Not

The Romeike family came to the United States from Germany five years ago hoping to find refuge. They wanted to home-school their children in freedom and a federal judge granted them asylum.

But now the Obama administration has been trying to deport them, arguing that home schooling is not a right. The case is currently before a federal appeals court.

The German government prevented Uwe and Hannelore Romeike from teaching their five children at home instead of sending them to government-run schools, fining them and threatening to prosecute them if they don't obey.

I'm more interested in having my questions answered...

How the hell do we know whats going on in a childs mind at 5 as a parent if they decide they are the opposite sex?

Whats the proper way to handle that situation and were do we draw the line between allowing them to think and do whatever they want and instilling discipline and common sense?

The lines are really starting to blur lately.

This is really a complicated thing, there is so much information and when it is new or unfamiliar, it is confusing or hard to believe. I've made a couple of posts explaining this and one of them can be found here. There's a few videos there of parents with their own transgender children. Basically, when a kid says they ARE a boy or a girl, not that they wish they could be a boy or a girl but they ARE, this is commonly a sign of gender dysphoria, the medical diagnosis for this condition. What clinicians look for is this behavior is expressed consistently, persistently and insistently over time.

I can tell you by five or six, I never had any doubts in my mind that I was not a boy. Think back to when you were that age, wasn't your sense of your own gender pretty well cast in stone? I wasn't confused, except why I had a boy's body and I have never been confused about or questioned who I was. I have also never changed my "gender" or my behavior or my personality and have never known myself as anything other than a girl and then a woman and this goes well beyond my own self perceptions as from my very first day of school, the whole world saw that I was different and never let me forget about it.

Had I been more outwardly a girl during school, who I was as a person would have made so much more sense. I had never been a boy and there was no way in hell I was ever going to grow up to be a man and it didn't take a rocket scientist or some shrink with a piece of paper hanging on their wall to know this. I said earlier that when I graduated high school and my parents started using my proper name and pronouns it was a relief for them. That was in 1973. There was actually some hope then that I would grow up and have a normal life and that's exactly what I did and I've never thought about being any other way. Just as my own sense of knowing what I was at five, that has been consistent and persistent for a lifetime, I do not have any knowledge or memory of ever feeling any different regardless of how hard the outside world tried to make me something I was not.

My parents did every sort of encouragement, programming, cajoling, bribing, shaming and whatever to guide me to be a "normal" boy and nothing changed who I was or made a damn bit of difference except to make me feel bad about myself and a tad obstinate. I began seeing child psychiatrists when I was 10 (1965) which became a regular event throughout my school years. Doctors knew nothing about this back then and my parents had no idea what to do with me because I was out of place and very dysphoric about it. An incident of brutal homophobic violence, because I looked like a girl and acted like a girl, happened my sophomore year of high school which was when my parents began to finally get it but what were they or I going to do about it in 1970? School as well as my body was a living hell and I won't elaborate further on my emotional state or what my life was like. I've done that here plenty in other places. Go through my post history.

In my experience, being born male was a huge mistake and the parts that made me male considered to be a birth defect that I was fortunate enough to have surgically corrected into something wanted and usable. I never knew quite how this was going to happen when I was a kid but I always knew it was going to happen one way or another. I have no explanation why I was born male but grew up to be a girl. It's the stupidest thing I ever heard of if that makes any difference and if this hadn't been my life, I might have a hard time believing it too.

A few more links below. You are also welcome to ask me questions if you are polite and respectful about it and I will try to answer as best I can. I've shared more of my story because a personal narrative may have a better chance of getting through than links? The people I know and work with in real life do not know of my medical history. I am funny, happy and well liked but I am not "out" about having changed sex and people can't tell by looking even if I were to be butt ass naked swinging from the treetops. When I was young, crazy and living dangerously in my 20's, I even had sex with a few guys that didn't know but when I met my husband when I was 29, he knew and didn't care at all and he was a very rugged manly hetero dude so when people call me "he" because of invisible chromosomes, it just makes me laugh. He, his, him has nothing at all to do with my life and never has. If I called you a SHE, wouldn't you kind of go WTF?

i really want to know when its time for me to reinforce my childs behavior and when its time for discipline...

how the hell am i suppose to figure that out as a parent?

These are common questions of parents with gender variant children. As had been suggested, get professional help, join a support group and talk to other parents, learn everything you can. Join a private forum like the one at Gender Spectrum that helps parents navigate these difficult questions. I would suggest before disciplining a child for gender atypical behavior, you learn some of the better ways of dealing with these things because if you do have a transgender kid, your misguided parenting will leave scars and you really don't want to do that to kids.

Difficult Conversations

When we first put the pieces together when our daughter was 4 and had been asking us for months when her penis would go away, the distinctions between gender non-conforming and transgender were very important to us. We were desperate to try and figure out what we should do, foresee the future and not make a wrong decision. We were asked by other parents if our child was transgender or gender non-conforming and it felt like we had to have a diagnosis to know what the next steps were. I’ve since realized that at the age of 4, when no decisions are permanent, this was unnecessary stress.

No, I don't think inside your little conspiracy box.

I was actually there, in school, in the 1950s. SexEd was basically a health lesson. Girls (boys too) were still naive about sex. It was still something not discussed. Parents didn't talk about it. What we learned, we learned on the playground from other kids. SexEd was definitely not SexEd. There was a need for real SexEd.

Lots of controversy, angry parents, and a school board that wouldn't back down because they knew kids needed it. Just like what's happening today with the transgender issue.

Not really.

Public School LGBT Programs Don't Just Trample Parental Rights. They Also Put Kids at Risk.
by Walt Heyer
within Education, Marriage, Sexuality

June 8th, 2015

No matter what well-intentioned teachers and administrators believe, LGBT acceptance programs designed by GLSEN and funded by the CDC are designed to encourage kids to question their gender identity and sexual orientation.

Through his executive appointments, President Obama has helped expose American schoolchildren to activism that places them at risk.

On May 19, 2009, a few short months after his inauguration, Obama gave the green light to Secretary of Education Arne Duncan to appoint Kevin Jennings to a top position to influence school policy: the post of Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools, also known as the “safe schools czar.” Jennings, a powerful LGBT rights activist who is himself a gay man, was the founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). GLSEN is one of the largest LGBT activist organizations in the nation and is devoted to promoting homosexuality in K-12 schools. Jennings served as “safe schools czar” from 2009-2011.

The are a Leftist propaganda site, run by a couple, and proven to lie on many issues. Not a credible source.

On another note........did you actually claim that boys DON'T have a penis and girls DON'T have a vagina??? You stated that was not an accurate statement.

I am thinking a lot more biology needs taught here, and a lot less social engineering......
