[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.

Washington State Next to Offer ‘No Gender’ Birth Certificates | Truth Revolt

A proposed change in the state of Washington will allow parents to choose the non-binary gender classification of “X” for their children and officially add it to new birth certificates. The law already states that anyone born in the state can petition to change their birth certificates to their preferred gender du jour. | TChildren can also make the change with “consent of their parents and with a doctor’s note,” according to KUOW.

A proposed change in the state of Washington will allow parents to choose the non-binary gender classification of “X” for their children and officially add it to new birth certificates.

The law already states that anyone born in the state can petition to change their birth certificates to their preferred gender du jour. Children can also make the change with “consent of their parents and with a doctor’s note,” according to KUOW.

If approved, the change would happen as early as next year. So far, about 1,000 comments have poured in to the state department of health with messages for and against the radical measure.

The health department’s Christie Spice said they are just following the societal changes happening around the country:

“[M]ore people are identifying as a gender other than a male or female and there’s growing demand for non-binary sex designations on all identity documents, including birth certificates.”

Washington is also considering giving the “X” designation for state ID cards, following in the footsteps of other states before it.

Nearby Oregon added the gender-neutral option earlier this year to its state-issued ID, as did Washington D.C. To no one’s surprise, California is leading the pack by offering non-binaries their coveted “X” on both driver’s licenses AND birth certificates. More proof that California is wokest of all.

Seattle ‘antifa’ fails.  Low Turnouts at Seattle and  Nationwide ‘Refuse Fascism’ Protests| Breitbart

The much-hyped, nationwide Antifa protests are off to a slow start, with a few hundred demonstrators in NYC and far smaller groups elsewhere.

Refuse Fascism, the group behind this weekend’s multi-city Antifa rallies, claims to be “organizing millions of people to drive out the fascist Trump / Pence regime.” Actual turnout on the first day of their nationwide rallies was far lower.

The group, founded by Revolutionary Communist Party chairman Bob Avakian, took out a full-page ad in the New York Times to promote the rally, and has enjoyed free press in the national media in the past few days.

Despite the press attention, turnout was low at many of Refuse Fascism’s rallies, which were scheduled to take place in 20 U.S. cities. The exception appears to have been L.A, where local news reported that close to 2,000 protesters gathered.

There were no reports of violent incidents, although a woman accused of deliberately splashing her drink on a Trump supporter was reportedly arrested at the Refuse Fascism march in New York City.

The Chicago protest later grew to a small crowd.

Boston saw an even smaller crowd of protesters.

In the Antifa stronghold of Seattle, local observers estimate an attendance of about 50 during the afternoon. Many protest signs can be seen lying on the ground, untouched and unused.

One protester in Seattle turned up with a Soviet flag. I can only assume that the New York Times, the Washington Post and CNN, all of which hate murderous totalitarian ideologies, will give it the same kind of coverage they devoted to the swastika at Charlottesville. That’s how it works, right?

There was also a man with an American flag, which is not totalitarian at all. Unless you believe the left.

There was also a man with neither an American flag nor a Soviet flag, but a trombone. Tooooot.

The largest rally appears to have been in New York City, where pictures and footage from the ground indicated a crowd of several hundred people.

As Usual, Patty Murray Doesn’t Get It | American Thinker

Back in the dreadful days of the patriarchy and plantation slavery, Dr. Johnson famously said that patriotism was the last refuge of a scoundrel.

But what do you say about Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) arguing that the ruling class should use its First Amendment rights to shut down extremists? She says:

Here is the issue worth discussing today: how can we protect this constitutional right [of the First Amendment] while also making sure that our colleges and universities are places where everyone can feel safe, learn, and respectfully debate ideas. And — as a part of that conversation, we need to discuss how elected leaders, community members, and college and university administrators, can best exercise their First Amendment right to do everything in their power to push back against those driving an agenda of extremism, racism, bigotry, xenophobia, and misogyny. And — we also must speak out against groups and organizations that are looking to use their right to free speech to divide us, to attack the most vulnerable among us, and to feed on people’s fear in the service of hate.

I’d say that “scoundrel” is too mild a world for Sen. Patty.

Murray is making three points here, and every one of them is wrong. First, she seems to think that protecting the First Amendment somehow conflicts with feeling safe, learning, and respectful debate. No, Patty. We have the police to keep people safe. The problem with our schools is that you liberals won’t let the police police lefty thugs like Antifa and BLM.

Then Patty thinks that the First Amendment is needed for powerful leaders and administrators to lecture the deplorables. No, Patty. No ruling class ever needed a First Amendment. You will note, Senator, that in Europe where there is no First Amendment, the ruling class, bless its heart, has no problem getting the word out — or in prosecuting deplorables for hate speech.

Then Patty writes that the ruling class should unite against people that want to divide “us.” No, Patty. Divide and conquer is your game, the ruling-class game that every military or political leader sucks in with her mother’s milk. Your problem is that regime opponents are uniting to break up your game and hive off people that have unreflectingly supported Deep State politicians like you without realizing that you don’t care about people like them; you only care about “elected leaders, community members, and college and university administrators” and other bribed apologists of the ruling-class. People like you, Patty.

Now let us check the text of the First Amendment.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Now, Patty, on my view, your idea of the powerful pushing back against “extremism” is the reason we have the First Amendment in the first place: to make it difficult for the ruling class to silence dissenting voices. Every ruling class wants to silence their opponents. Some rulers call them deplorables and “extremists.” Others go straight to the point and call them “saboteurs and wreckers.” Every ruling class hates its critics.

And do you see that bit at the end, Patty, about “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances?” It says nothing about exceptions in case of “extremism, racism, bigotry, xenophobia, and misogyny.” In fact, I’d say that any anyone peaceably assembling, down the ages, has without exception had to face the scorn and the pejoratives of ruling-class place-men and place-women like you.

Let me repeat: words like “extremism, racism, bigotry, xenophobia, and misogyny” are notable today only as pejoratives that ruling-class pooh-bahs like you, Patty Murray — and your violent Antifa and BLM stooges on the street — use to bully and silence any dissent from ruling-class ideology.

If you believe, as I do, that there is no such thing as justice, only injustice, then the First Amendment makes complete sense. On this view, the point of the First Amendment is to give people that are experiencing injustice — no matter how deplorable and mistaken the ruling class judges them to be — a chance to make their grievances heard in the public square. And since Government is Force, it stands to reason that every ruling class in history presides over a blazing Triangle Shirtwaist manufactory of injustice.

Let me say this again. The point of the First Amendment is precisely to let “white supremacists” like Richard Spencer into the public square. It doesn’t matter that he is a monstrous extremist. The point is that “we” — whether the ruling class or worthier, nobler folks like AT readers — need to hear from people that think they are suffering under injustice, whether they are “right” or not.

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.]

Rantz: Despicable abuse of power on safe injection sites

Campaigners for Initiative 27 submitted the required signatures to put on a ballot a ban on safe injection sites. But that doesn’t matter to the King County Council.

Source: Rantz: Despicable abuse of power on safe injection sites

[Ed.: “Abuse of Power” doesn’t quite do this action justice. This is downright dereliction of duty, malfeasance and misfeasance. Rantz is absolutely spot-on in his analysis of this action. It’s delaying and a completely tone deaf response to the concerns of citizens who have not been impressed with the results that Vancouver, BC is getting with this sort of facility.

I’m glad there’s an “equal protection” clause in our Constitution so that the law is always meted out equally and fairly. These people need to be locked up for their lawlessness.]

Lawsuit seeks to block vote on safe-injection sites | KIRO-TV

SEATTLE (AP) – A group of public health experts and others are challenging a proposed King County initiative that would ban safe injection sites for drug users.

[Ed.: Oh, is polling telling you that your precious, stupid liberal idea is going to go down in flames if you don’t sue and have the initiative quashed before you get to de facto legalize heroin in King County? Any judge who looks at this with a skeptical eye toward any health benefits of this crackpot program has to side with the sane people who do not want supervised injection sites because it doesn’t work and it draws a criminal drug element.]

Email trail linked to Seattle minimum wage study is ‘not pretty’

A trail of evidence shows just how much collaboration there was between the City of Seattle and a university that published a pro-minimum wage study.

[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!]
