Where to start with this one. We have a nominee for the Supreme Court who can’t define what a woman is. We have Disney employees staging walk-outs because their CEO wasn’t quicker in denouncing a bill that would keep discussions of sex and sexuality out of kindergarten through third grade. People have fought back, though, and started calling those opposed to the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill “groomers.” Why is it so important that kindergarten teachers lead class discussions of sexual orientation and gender identity?
Just as they did with critical race theory, they’ll say that no one is teaching second graders about gender identity. But Libs of Tik Tok has posted some “core concepts” for Illinois school children. By the end of second grade, students should be able to define gender, gender identity, and gender-role stereotypes, as well as be able to discuss the range of ways people express their gender and how gender-role stereotypes may “limit behavior.” It’s not until grades six through eight that students should be able to explain a range of identities related to sexual orientation: heterosexual, bisexual, gay, queer, asexual, and pansexual. The curriculum seems wanting, as Duke University covers the whole LGBTQQIP2SAA spectrum, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, queer, intersex, pansexual, two-spirit, androgynous, and asexual.
Oh, and grades nine through twelve should be able to define “reproductive justice” and explain its history and how it relates to sexual health.
Illinois education standards says grades K-2 should learn about gender, gender identity, and gender stereotypes. Grades 3-5 learn about masturbation, puberty blockers, and trans children. Literal grooming.

Its for school yr 2022-2023. All districts should be adopting into curriculum. I’m in Illinois and have read the whole document. It’s insane.

I used to think that public education in this country was the best you could find, of course nothing was and is perfect, but your parents had the opportunity to find you a good education so that you would have great opportunities in your life…

but now this is what the public schools of this country can offer.

I wish I could say that this is unbelievable, but, sadly, it's not.

Why do third graders need to know about masturbation?

And if they do, why is this a task given to government employees?

This is disturbing, but not surprising. Which makes it even more disturbing.

This is why we left. I loved my time in Chi-town, but when my daughter came home from Kindergarten and told us they had them stand up and ask if they were boys or girls, we got the hell out of there.

Literally 95% of all of the people that are supporting this don't have kids. Seriously, if you don't have kids, stay out of the discussion about how to teach and raise kids. And that includes childless teachers.

Except there are the activist teachers who don’t think they’re “your” kids.
Notice how by second grade kids are supposed to be able to describe how they’re “limited” by their gender roles — they’ve got to understand early that gender roles are a bad thing.
