Hitler stated, “He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.” The premise is simple, the one who is allowed to mold and shape the thinking of the children of a given society, will rule that society in the future. It will be the ideas planted in the minds of children that will rule the day. This lesson, though taught to us many times through the twentieth century, has been ignored or forgotten. This lesson is soon to be taught us again.
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.
What the children of Fairfax County, Virginia will be taught is that they, no matter their biological and physical make-up, can be any gender that they choose. If a girl suddenly decides that she is a boy, then she will be accepted as a boy until or unless she chooses not to be a boy any longer. And even those who have no “sexual confusion” are not ever completely one or the other because we are never “100 percent anything.”
What exactly will this look like in the classroom?
“Students will be provided definitions for sexual orientation terms heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality; and the gender identity term transgender,” the district’s recommendations state. “Emphasis will be placed on recognizing that everyone is experiencing changes and the role of respectful, inclusive language in promoting an environment free of bias and discrimination.”
“Individual identity will also be described as having four parts – biological gender, gender identity (includes transgender), gender role, and sexual orientation (includes heterosexual, bisexual, and homosexual).”
The district will also introduce young teenagers to the “concept that sexuality is a broader spectrum.” By tenth grade, they will be taught that one’s sexuality “develops throughout a lifetime.”
