In response to the article above:
Here is another case of the growing agenda sweeping our schools. The spreading indoctrination done to submit the 100% to drastic changes, to accommodate the 2.9%.
Sexual preference has become a "race". All of this social-justice-think will only serve to further divide the kids, the schools, and confuse the future. It has nothing to do with equality, or to de-stigmatize an alternative sexual identity, but to morally de-sensitize it. Is that what we send our kids to school for?
We always assumed that schools' duty was to teach students the subjects of reading, writing, math, history, etc. Today "indoctrination" (in this case "gender identity") is a new "subject" being thrust on the minds of your kids, the ones you brought into this world and have been raising. This is but one of the many-faceted subjects they are being taught to embrace. "Schools have a duty to honor a student’s wishes about how they are referred to, whether it’s through the use of pronouns or a new name. However, some have not embraced such concepts. We know there are also people who refuse to use those pronouns and names and what they don’t realize is that they are actually violating that child’s rights” (Jeff Bianco, an openly gay teacher, Northeast Elementary School).
The article states: "The policy addresses issues such as the use of correct pronouns for students, bathroom usage, and reporting and responding to bullying and harassment. It also lays out guidelines for school personnel. For example, staff are directed not to disclose information that may reveal a student’s gender identity, including to the student’s parents."
The question is, how imperative is it for your child to be taught by the school how to process the subject of sexual orientation? To be subject to the biased agenda of those who push their own personal evaluations of character or sexual behaviors? Consider: “The last thing I want is for students to feel uncomfortable with their sexuality, I think there’s a lot of work to do but I think we’re moving in the right direction.” (Jackie Pioli, Board of Education).
There is nothing in this response that is discriminatory. Those who choose to practice their personal sexual identity have the right to do so respectfully . However, those who believe in this right should also respect the rights of others who chose not to have any part. To force this way of thinking against children and their parents through indoctrination is sexual harassment.
