Good news, everyone. The government continues to demonstrate there’s no problem it can’t invent. Educators striving to create gender-inclusive classrooms now can benefit from a new guide, “Creating Supportive Learning Environments for Girls and Boys: A Guide for Educators.”

Gender and education specialists reportedly spent two years compiling the guide, which is a shame, because it’s already woefully outdated and littered with meaningless and offensive labels like “girls” and “boys.”

Compounding matters, the guide is a free download, but not only is gender a required field — it’s a drop-down menu with only three choices. Other? What year is this, 2014?
