[Editor’s note:  This is why we home school.  Five year old’s don’t have anywhere close to the mindset to comprehend an issue a complex as this.  This is why the leftist cretins seek to get their idiotic and destructive ideas in a that early age – to indoctrinate at an early age.   We are doomed.]

 

 

Beginning in fall of 2017, all Washington state public schools will begin teaching kindergartners that gender is a “social construct” and there are “many ways to express gender” as part of its newly-approved “self-identity” curriculum.

One of the “core” areas in Washington state’s new health education learning standards is sexual health, components of which will be introduced to children starting in kindergarten, including the idea of gender “self-identity” and the difference between “safe” and “unwanted touch.”

The new standards require that kindergartners be taught to understand that “there are many ways to express gender.” Gender, as The Daily Caller’s Peter Hasson notes, is defined by the state’s health education glossary as “a social construct based on emotional, behavioral, and cultural characteristics attached to a person’s assigned biological sex.” Gender expression is defined by the state as “the way someone outwardly expresses their gender.”

In its “safe” versus “unwanted touch” lessons, the state will teach kindgartners to “[r]ecognize people have the right to refuse giving or receiving unwanted touch.” When TheDC asked Nathan Olson, a communications manager for the state’s Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), if that meant they were teaching kindergartners about the idea of consent, they got no response.

In third grade, children will learn that they should respect others’ self-determined “gender identity,” an idea that will be elaborated on in fourth grade, when they will be taught to identify “how friends and family can influence ideas regarding gender roles, identity, and expression,” along with lessons on HIV prevention. In fifth grade, children will be taught about the ways “media, society, and culture” influence the “social construct” of gender and how to “identify trusted adults to ask questions about gender identity and sexual orientation.” In seventh grade, students will be asked to distinguish “between biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.”

Despite the massive controversy over ideas surrounding “gender identity” versus biological sex, OSPI insisted that through its standards it was not attempting to “impose belief systems” on children.

“Standards help students become familiar with concepts that education experts feel are essential for all students to know,” Olson told TheDC. “Standards are not used to impose belief systems.”

Asked about what a school would do if a student failed an assignment due to opposing the premises of the material, Olson said “we don’t exactly know” and that it’s up to the school.

Evergreen State College pays up to settle suit by Prof. Bret Weinstein | American Thinker

Professor Bret Weinstein, a leftist, refused to participate in the evacuation of white people (only) from the campus of Evergreen State College and sued the college for the hostile work environment he alleged that he and his wife subsequently suffered. Without admitting that charge, the state-supported institution that already faces a $2.1 million deficit and layoffs, is going to cough up a cool half million bucks to avoid the expense, spectacle, and risk of a jury trial.

[Editor’s note:  So the taxpayers of Washington will now need to cough up half a million dollars to settle the claim.   Is the “University” administration to suffer any consequences for their idiotic policies?  No, they get to enjoy their inflated salaries, benefits and can look forward to their generous pensions, all the while continuing their war on the civil society by indoctrinating another generation of ignorant social justice warriors.]

On July 30th, 1945, a Japanese submarine launched a pair of torpedoes at the USS Indianapolis, sinking it in minutes and resulting in the greatest loss of life in the history of the US Navy.

[Ed.: Is it any wonder that the City of Seattle needs to cook the books to make the $15 Minimum Wage story jive? Of course it doesn’t work because it’s ECONOMICS. Oh wait, you have a councilmember that’s a PhD in Economics that should know this wouldn’t work like it was pitched. What? She’s the one that was actually pushing for doubling the minimum wage in Seattle? Someone needs to have their credentials taken away because clearly any real college or university wouldn’t teach this sort of drivel. Yes, I’m talking to you NC State Wolfpack!]
