The Washington Post reported that a kindergarten teacher in Massachusetts said that he exposes children to the terms transgender and gender-queer, though he does not provide complete definitions since that would be too much for kids in kindergarten. The outlet reported that the educator wished to remain anonymous since his district had not cleared him to talk publicly.
The teacher discusses anatomy but does not categorize parts as being specifically male or female, according to the Post. "We don’t say a penis belongs to a man," the teacher remarked — it goes with a human, he noted. The kindergarten educator teaches that if a physician declares a baby to be a boy when he is born, that child is not necessarily a boy. "Someone who was born a boy may not feel they are a boy."
The Post also reported that biology teacher Sam Long of Denver South High School, who is transgender, said that "LGBTQ identities are a naturally occurring facet of human variation, and that is why we need to learn about them in the context of biology and human anatomy."
Issues surrounding radical leftist gender ideology are highly controversial and remain the topic of significant debate throughout the country. Many parents do not want their kids to be exposed to the reality-defying gender-bending dogmas peddled by the left.
"There's years of research that demonstrate that curriculums that include respect for others regarding their sexual orientation and gender identity are more effective," director of the division of adolescent and school health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Kathleen Ethier stated, according to the Post. "When you make a school environment safe and supportive for the most vulnerable youth, you improve the school environment for everyone."
The U.S. government has been celebrating the LGBT movement by recognizing June as so-called pride month. President Joe Biden issued a proclamation declaring "June 2022 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to recognize the achievements of the LGBTQI+ community, to celebrate the great diversity of the American people, and to wave their flags of pride high," he said in the proclamation.
Government entities, such as the Treasury Department, have even hoisted pride flags to celebrate the cause du jour.
