School Teaching ‘Gender Fluidity': Blurring Line Between ‘Boys’ & ‘Girls’
Did you know that there is a fluid spectrum of sexuality that is developed throughout your lifetime?
Did you know that gender identity occurs over a lifetime?
Neither did I.
According to an article on FoxNews.com, one of our nation’s largest public school systems in Virginia is going to start including these ideas in their curriculum for grades 7 through 12.
It is called "lessons on sexual fluidity and spectrum," and this thought process believes there is no such thing as someone being 100 percent male or female.
Apparently, I have mistakenly gone through my lifetime thinking I was a male.
According to the article, “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.”
Is this something that should be taught in our public school systems?
Should this be left up to our parents to possibly figure this out, and, if needed, find help for their children if they are confused?
Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council was quoted in the article stating, “Human beings are created male and female. But the current transgender ideology goes way beyond that. They’re telling us you can be both genders, you can be no gender, you can be a gender that you make up for yourself. And we’re supposed to affirm all of it.”
Some of the ideas that the children will be taught are the following:
Seventh graders will learn about transgenderism.
Eighth graders will be taught that individual identity “occurs over a lifetime and includes the component of sexual orientation and gender identity.”
Tenth graders will be taught the concept that sexuality is a broader spectrum that develops throughout a lifetime.
According to the article, “Emphasis will be placed on an understanding that there is a broader, boundless, and fluid spectrum of sexuality that is developed throughout a lifetime,” the document states.
The article goes on to say, “Sexual orientation and gender identity terms will be discussed with focus on appreciation for individual differences.”
I understand that a very small percentage of children may have questions about their sexuality, but is this something that needs to be taught to the majority of children?
Are they attempting to force their beliefs on children?
Will this help children understand others who are struggling with their own identity or help indoctrinate them into their beliefs?
