US: Parents furious over school’s plan to teach gender spectrum, fluidity

One of the nation’s largest public school systems is preparing to include gender identity to its classroom curriculum, including lessons on sexual fluidity and spectrum – the idea that there’s no such thing as 100 percent boys or 100 percent girls.

Fairfax County Public Schools released a report recommending changes to their family life curriculum for grades 7 through 12. The changes, which critics call radical gender ideology, will be formally introduced next week.

“The larger picture is this is really an attack on nature itself – the created order,” said Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council…

    When I read this sort of nonsense I can’t help but think that Islam does have some strong points. I know that’s like saying Hitler wasn’t all bad, he did like dogs, but hey this is craziness.

    I have no problems with this kind of education. The truth is, in the animal world and the human world, there are beings born with ambiguous genitalia. There are people who feel they are the wrong sex. I know many Lesbians who were once married to men (and some the reverse as well). in schools, I see a lot of boys limiting themselves to avoid being called a f@g or a girly girl.
    If there are children born into this world without brains, eyes, missing limbs, attached to their twin, then why is it so hard to grasp that gender and sex is also not something carved in stone?

      Yes, so what? Aren’t students supposed to be in school to learn, you know, math, science, language, etc.? This is what happens when you allow leftist interest group politics to overwhelm you schools.

      Oh, and BTW, I’m sure all those Muslims in Fairfax county will not have to attend these ridiculous indoctrination sessions.

        Gender does have an influence on all these topics you mention:

        Science: male vs. female behaviour and biology
        math: why males seem to prefer math over girls, what kind of problems to use in math class for practice
        languages: masculine vs. feminine nouns in romance languages, use of pronouns, stories like those of Shakespeare when women could not be in theatre

        I’m not sure why those on Blazing Cat Fur seem so threatened by discussions on gender. I don’t like Islam … and two of the reasons are its suppression of women and rigid gender roles.

            I thought it was so we could get a good laugh. Big guitars, small guitars – what was that all about?

          You apparently do not understand the meaning of words such as “gender”, thus your apparent gross confusion. And what you detect as ‘being threatened’ is distain for the intellectually stunted gnomic ones who pop up to receive offense.

            “Distain”? Maybe CLOROX will help.

          I guess we’re just genderphobic. There should be a law or something.

      You clearly know zero about the natural world. I have yet to have a bull that thought he was a heifer or a cow and vice versa. The same goes for rams, bucks and cocks (male chickens for the uninformed). Sex is clearly carved in stone. Yes, among humans there is a small percentage who for whatever reason are attracted sexually to their own sex, but in the animal kingdom any such deviation becomes extinct very quickly should any exist in the first place. Anyway the main point is that none of this has anything to do with education and clearly is not age appropriate.

    “Just agree to Gay Marriage and that will be the end of it”.

    Or just the beginning…

    too much minutia
    Kids need the bare bones and then sent off to the appropriate specialists
    (science is still so young on this yet…they only discovered there is a heart hormone 3 years ago…so don’t go racing down the track yet)
    then get back to learning body parts, germs, how to make a splint etc
    IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT YOU! and every other minority group out there!
    IF you keep paying minority spokes people Gov’t money=THEN THEY HAVE TO KEEP FINDING STUFF TO PROMOTE it’s called job creation!
    minutia is between YOU and your parents/spouse/best friend/psychologist
    Also, you can keep pushing till you push people completely away… there is a tipping point happening and I would hate to see all that you have won get crushed
