No adult involved in trying to foist this propaganda on school children should be allowed anywhere near a child.
A one-hour elementary school lesson on gender diversity featuring all-girl geckos and transgender clownfish caused a stir in Oakland on Monday, with conservative legal defense organizations questioning the legitimacy of the topic and providing legal counsel to parents who opposed the instruction.
So, fourth- and fifth-grade students learned about the crazy world of gender within the animal kingdom with lessons about single-sex Hawaiian geckos, fish that switch genders and boy snakes that act “girly.”
“That’s a lot of variation in nature,” Gender Spectrum trainer, Joel Baum, told the students. “Evolution comes up with some pretty funny ways for animals to reproduce.”
And that same kind of diversity applies to people too, said Baum, the education director for the San Leandro nonprofit. For example, some boys can act like girls; some girls can have boy body parts; and some biological boys feel like a girl inside their hearts, he said.
“It turns out that there are not just two options,” he said.
And that, said representatives from the conservative Pacific Justice Institute, was the problem.
These Oakland children will be told there are more than two genders, the organization advised the media in a press release last week.
“This instruction does not represent the values of the majority of families in Oakland,” said attorney Kevin Snider in a statement.
These crackpots might as well be teaching children that they can become sea otters if they wish for it hard enough. It’s that loopy. In a better world, people who ran around talking about how there were more than two genders would be institutionalized. Instead, we’re giving them access to children.
Thank you, liberalism!
