    The bottom line

    SOME KNOWLEDGE IS TOO HEAVY FOR CHILDREN. When they are older and stronger, they can bear it. It would be a pretty poor parent who would ask his kindergartner to carry such a “THINK GENDER” heavy load. For now children must trust their parents to carry it for them.”

    REMEMBER WHEN SCHOOL WAS ALL ABOUT READING, WRITING, AND ARITHMETIC?

    NOT ANYMORE.

    Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, Washington state will teach elementary school students about “gender identity” and “gender expression.”

    In the “Sexual Health” portion of the “Washington State K-12 Learning Standards” packet, teachers are given guidelines for each grade.

     Under a section labeled “Self-Identity,”each grade is to learn the following:

    KINDERGARTEN

    “Understand there are many ways to express gender.“

    FIRST GRADE

    “Explain that there are many ways to express gender.”

    SECOND GRADE

    “Understand there is a range of gender roles and expression,” and “Understand importance of treating others with respect regarding gender expression.”

    THIRD GRADE

    “Explain that gender roles can vary considerably,” and “Understand importance of treating others with respect regarding gender identity.”

    FOURTH GRADE

    “Identify how friends and family can influence ideas regarding gender roles, identity, and expression,” and “Define sexual orientation.”

    FIFTH GRADE

    “Describe how media, society, and culture can influence ideas regarding gender roles, identity, and expression,” and “Identify trusted adults to ask questions about gender identity and sexual orientation.”

    In the “Health Education Glossary,” “biological sex” is defined as:

    “Based on chromosomes, hormones, and internal and external anatomy.”

    While “GENDER” IS DEFINED AS:

    “A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT BASED ON EMOTIONAL, BEHAVIORAL, AND CULTURAL CHARACTERISTICS ATTACHED TO A PERSON’S BIOLOGICAL SEX.”

    FURTHER, GENDER IS BROKEN DOWN INTO THREE SUBCATEGORIES:

    GENDER EXPRESSION: “THE WAY SOMEONE OUTWARDLY EXPRESSES THEIR GENDER.”

    GENDER IDENTITY: “SOMEONE’S INNER SENSE OF THEIR GENDER.”

    GENDER ROLES: “SOCIAL EXPECTATIONS ABOUT HOW PEOPLE SHOULD ACT, THINK, OR FEEL BASED ON THEIR ASSIGNED BIOLOGICAL SEX.”

    The Daily Caller spoke with NATHAN OLSON, A COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER FOR THE STATEWIDE OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION (OSPI). HE CLAIMED THE STANDARDS WEREN’T AN IMPOSITION OF BELIEF SYSTEMS:

    “Standards help students become familiar with concepts that education experts feel are essential for all students to know. Standards are not used to impose belief systems.”

    However, when DC asked OLSON IF STUDENTS WHO “[REJECT] THE IDEA THAT GENDER IDENTITY IS DISTINCT FROM BIOLOGICAL SEX” COULD SUFFER ACADEMICALLY,

     OLSON PIVOTED, SAYING SUCH ISSUES WOULD BE HANDLED AT A LOCAL LEVEL.

     HE THEN ADDED:

    “We don’t exactly know what a school would do if a student failed to complete an assignment because he/she opposed the materials being taught.”

    Washington state’s decision has troubled many conservatives:

    I removed …offensive comments by  promoters of this agenda.

    THIS IS INDOCTRINATION.

    ——————————————————————————-

     INDEED, Some knowledge is too heavy for children.

    (I found this quotation online)

    “And so seated next to my father in the train compartment, I suddenly asked, “Father, what is sexsin?”
    He turned to look at me, as he always did when answering a question, but to my surprise he said nothing. At last he stood up, lifted his traveling case off the floor and set it on the floor.
    Will you carry it off the train, Corrie?” he said.
    I stood up and tugged at it. It was crammed with the watches and spare parts he had purchased that morning.
    It’s too heavy,” I said.
    Yes,” he said, “and it would be a pretty poor father who would ask his little girl to carry such a load. It’s the same way, Corrie, with knowledge. Some knowledge is too heavy for children. When you are older and stronger, you can bear it. For now you must trust me to carry it for you.”

    ——————————————————————

    THE POWER OF SUGGESTION?

    Suggestion is the psychological process by which one person guides the thoughts, feelings, or behavior of  another.

    NOTE: The power of suggestion must involve at least two people

    LIKE A WA STATE PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER TEACHING TRANSGENDER TO AN IMPRESSIONABLE FIVE YEAR OLD KINDERGARTNER

    Aim: to investigate whether people have self-serving attributions, and why they do it?

    —————————————————————-

    Self-Fulfilling Prophecy:

    NOTE: Self-fulfilling prophecies must involve at least two people

    Aim: to investigate whether people have self-serving attributions, and why they do it?

    Process by which one’s expectations about another person eventually lead the other person to behave in ways that confirm these expectations

    Self-Fulfilling Prophecy DefinitionSelf-fulfilling prophecy is defined as any expectation, positive or negative, about a situation or event that affects an individual behavior in such a manner that it causes that expectation to be fulfilled.

    Example of self-fulfilling prophecy

    The bottom line

    SOME KNOWLEDGE IS TOO HEAVY FOR CHILDREN. When they are older and stronger, they can bear it. It would be a pretty poor parent who would ask his kindergartner to carry such a “THINK GENDER” heavy load. For now children must trust their parents to carry it for them.”

    WA STATE PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS AND FAMILIES  MUST DEMAND THE REMOVAL OF THIS COMPLETELY INAPPROPRIATE “COMMON CORE PUBLIC SCHOOL, SEXUAL INDOCTRINATION PROGRAM” AT ANY AGE OR GRADE LEVEL. PERIOD.

    Scientific Transgender medical and psychological studies

    According to a study conducted by the National Center for Transgender Equality and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, it’s not going well.

    The study found that a staggering 41 percent of transgendered people say they’ve attempted suicide. And apparently, permanently changing their sex doesn’t help either.

    A 2011 Swedish study found that people who undergo sex-change surgery start experiencing increased mental difficulties about 10 years after surgery.

    In fact, their suicide mortality then rises to almost 20 times greater than the comparable non-transgender population!

    A case in point is a Belgian woman who underwent sex reassignment surgery and then last year chose to be euthanized.

    Apparently, the self-hatred that drove her to become a man persisted after her sex change. Just like she couldn’t accept herself as a woman, she couldn’t accept herself as a man, either. “(N)one of these operations worked as desired,” Nathan (born Nancy) Verhelst said. “(W)hen I looked in the mirror, I was disgusted with myself. My new breasts did not match my expectations and my new penis had symptoms of rejection. I do not want to be… a monster. ”

    According to Dr. Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, people with transgender feelings experience psychological distress because they suffer from “body dysmorphic disorder”: just like someone suffering from bulimia wrongly believes she is fat, so a person with transgender feelings wrongly thinks he or she is a sex that doesn’t correspond to reality.McHugh says most of those who elect to have sex-reassignment surgery describe themselves as “satisfied.”

    However, studies found that “their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn’t have surgery.”

    As a result, Johns Hopkins Hospital has stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery. As McHugh puts it, “producing a ‘satisfied’ but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs.”

    Instead, McHugh says, diversity counselors function much like “cult leaders,” often encouraging these confused young people to distance themselves from family and anyone who challenges the legitimacy of their feelings.

    So, our public high schools, by promoting this unproven gender-bending agenda may actually be hurting those they purport to help.

    The Gender Agenda – Coming to a School Near You! | Julie …

    Four years ago, if you had predicted that the end-game of the LGBTQ community was to destroy all gender and sexual boundaries, many would have labeled you an extremist on a witch hunt. I know because I made that prediction. And, in response, I received many angry denials from members of a local high school’s Gay Straight Alliance (GSA). “You seem to believe that the LGBTQ movement wants to spark a gender-reformation. How could one reform a biologically accurate thing? Well, it’s not possible…” Another wrote: “The Gay Straight Alliances have done nothing of the sort… They merely have decided… to show that there are so many beautiful people out there that society has not tolerated for the longest of time.” However, two articles published about a week ago in a suburban Chicago high school newspaper show that’s precisely the LGBTQ movement’s intent. The articles appeared in the Statesman, the tax-payer funded student newspaper of Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Illinois, where my husband teaches math. One article entitled, “How vast is the gender spectrum?” argued that limiting gender to male and female is too restrictive. “Nothing is written in black or white,” the article asserted. “In fact, the world is filled with many gray areas. Nowadays, our gender identity is not restricted to two choices: boy or girl.” This is a shocking statement given that Genesis – the foundation for two major world religions – states very clearly in black and white that only two genders exist. Genesis 1:27 states, “God created mankind in his own image… male and female he created them.” Other religions affirm this understanding, as well. In fact, it’s been the established societal view since the beginning of human history. But, in one fell swoop, this article declared this age-old, religious understanding obsolete. And, it asserted this falsehood, not as opinion with attribution, but as fact! A second article in the Statesman further deconstructed traditional and religious sexual mores. When identifying their “sexual orientation,” it encouraged students to think beyond sexual stereotypes – not just heterosexual ones, but homosexual ones too. “I think there are infinite sexual orientations,” a Stevenson student named Cameron said. “There are so many labels. It’s impossible to number them…” Wow. “Infinite sexual orientations”? In my wildest imagination, I could maybe come up with several dozen, but infinite? And, what about the moral legitimacy of these orientations? Cameron went on to say, “There is nothing wrong with however you are. If you like boys, girls, anyone in between, or none of the above, that’s okay.” Seriously? All these infinite orientations are morally acceptable? Is this what they’re teaching students these days? What if you’re attracted to animals? A family member? The dead? (Yes, it exists. It’s called necrophilia.) One has to wonder where students get these ideas. Perhaps, it’s from English teachers like William Fritz, also the GSA faculty advisor. In the article on gender spectrum, he says, “The gender of the person you truly are can be different from (your physical features). We are not a one size fits all species.” One has to wonder how this English teacher came to this epiphany. He offered no evidence to support his claim. In fact, neither article presented any evidence for their wild assertions. They didn’t offer any dissenting opinions either. Instead, they relied solely on LGBTQ activists and their disciples – Mr. Fritz; a staff person with the national GSA; a 17-year-old “gender studies” blogger; and high school students, presumably members of the school’s GSA. Apparently, LGBTQ activists at public schools are getting bolder – and school administrators are affording them special privilege to proselytize openly. Certainly, if a Christian would try to distribute literature at Stevenson explaining the biblical understanding of gender, the administration would immediately shut him down. Yet, here gay activists are given carte blanche to spread their propaganda right in the school-sponsored newspaper! One of the people quoted repeatedly in the article on the gender spectrum is teenage blogger Kathryn Tenbarge. “To break free from conforming stereotypes is a very courageous thing to do,” Tenbarge said. “It means you have reached a level of understanding yourself that most people haven’t.” Really? So, those of us with a Judeo-Christian understanding of sexuality are simply unenlightened? The article concludes, “For now, Fritz, (another student) and Tenbarge agree there is nothing to lose from expanding the strict labels and categories our society tries to squeeze everyone into.” Again, this is just another wild assertion without any basis in fact. With all due respect, how can these self-appointed gender experts know this? To date, the traditional family model has served as the foundation for all Western Civilization. Though many today express disdain for this great civilization, one can’t deny that it’s produced some of the most prosperous and stable societies the world has ever known. But, now we are moving into new territory with unpredictable results. Yet, early indications show that this anything-goes sexuality may have devastating consequences. One woman whose husband left her for his gay lover, and took their children with him, writes in Public Discourse: “Behind the happy façade of many families headed by same-sex couples, we see relationships that are built from brokenness…. I represent hundreds upon thousands of spouses who have been betrayed and rejected.” This is tragic and certainly will have widespread ramifications for the children raised in these devastated homes. But, this is what results when one’s attractions du jour trump marriage vows. The author of the article also notes that “Every same-sex family can only exist by manipulating nature.” Unlike traditional marriage, which naturally produces children, same-sex couples must rely on “assisted reproductive technologies such as surrogacy or sperm donation to have children. Such processes exploit men and women for their reproductive potential, treat children as products to be bought and sold, and purposely deny children a relationship with one or both of their biological parents.” Again tragically, it’s children who suffer.

    But what about transgendered people? How is expanding the “gender spectrum” working for them?

    According to a study conducted by the National Center for Transgender Equality and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, it’s not going well. The study found that a staggering 41 percent of transgendered people say they’ve attempted suicide. And apparently, permanently changing their sex doesn’t help either.

    A 2011 Swedish study found that people who undergo sex-change surgery start experiencing increased mental difficulties about 10 years after surgery. In fact, their suicide mortality then rises to almost 20 times greater than the comparable non-transgender population!

    Apparently, the self-hatred that drove her to become a man persisted after her sex change. Just like she couldn’t accept herself as a woman, she couldn’t accept herself as a man, either. “(N)one of these operations worked as desired,” Nathan (born Nancy) Verhelst said. “(W)hen I looked in the mirror, I was disgusted with myself. My new breasts did not match my expectations and my new penis had symptoms of rejection. I do not want to be… a monster. ”

    According to Dr. Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, people with transgender feelings experience psychological distress because they suffer from “body dysmorphic disorder”: just like someone suffering from bulimia wrongly believes she is fat, so a person with transgender feelings wrongly thinks he or she is a sex that doesn’t correspond to reality.

    McHugh says most of those who elect to have sex-reassignment surgery describe themselves as “satisfied.”

    However, studies found that “their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn’t have surgery.” As a result, Johns Hopkins Hospital has stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery. As McHugh puts it, “producing a ‘satisfied’ but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs.” Interestingly, McHugh reports that controlled and follow-up studies show that 70-80 percent of children with transgender feelings spontaneously lose those feelings as they mature. School counselors should be challenging these students’ false beliefs about themselves. Instead, McHugh says, diversity counselors function much like “cult leaders,” often encouraging these confused young people to distance themselves from family and anyone who challenges the legitimacy of their feelings. So, our public high schools, by promoting this unproven gender-bending agenda may actually be hurting those they purport to help.

    Perhaps, this is because the reality that billions throughout the centuries have affirmed is actually true! We do not construct ourselves; God constructs us. And, when our confusion and brokenness leads us to deny our God¬-given gender, we only harm ourselves and those closest to us. Instead of encouraging students to pursue whatever feels right to them, maybe administrators and faculty advisors should be urging them to love and accept the person God created them to be? Unfortunately, students in many of our public schools never hear this common sense, Judeo-Christian view. As these student articles show, it’s simply presumed false or too restrictive. You may think this is happening in only liberal suburban Chicago schools, but it’s everywhere. For example, just last week, the media reported that school administrators in Lincoln, Nebraska – hardly a hotbed of liberalism – instructed teachers to no longer use “gendered expressions” such as “boys and girls.” Instead, they told them to use “gender inclusive” terms like “purple penguins.” Seriously – purple penguins! Now that this radical, gender-destroying agenda of the LGBTQ community has been revealed, how should we respond? Do Christians retreat and allow the radicals to distort children’s understanding of their dignity, purpose and God¬-given gender? Do we let high school administrators define our boys and girls as “purple penguins” – and use our taxes to promote propaganda?

    the bottom line…

    Or, do we say enough is enough – and begin reasserting our voice in this society gone crazy? Our children’s future is at stake.

    Why No School Has to Allow Boys in Girls Locker Rooms

    Nov 6, 2015 – Despite the recent ruling by the U.S. Department of Education against a suburban Chicago high school, no school has to allow boys in girls locker rooms, or vice-versa. That’s according to Matt Sharp, legal counsel with the Alliance Defending Freedom, or ADF — a group that offers free legal counsel to any school that adopts its policy on transgender issues and gets sued.

    ONCE PROPERLY INFORMED, PARENTS THEN NEED TO SHOW UP AT SCHOOL BOARD MEETINGS and inform board members about the law, Sharp said. “They need to be equipped with these other court cases, and findings that federal courts have said you’re not in violation of Title IX if you maintain these separate facilities. We’ve found that to be very effective.”

    Why No School Has to Allow Boys in Girls Locker Rooms

    The Christian Post

    Nov 6, 2015 – Despite the recent ruling by the U.S. Department of Education against a suburban Chicago high school, no school has to allow boys in girls locker rooms, or vice-versa. That’s according to Matt Sharp, legal counsel with the Alliance Defending Freedom, or ADF — a group that offers free legal counsel to any school that adopts its policy on transgender issues and gets sued.

    ——————————–
    “We believe (our policy) is legally sound,” Sharp said. “And, to show you how serious we are, if you adopt our policy and you get sued, the Alliance Defending Freedom is willing to represent you free of charge, so that you’re not out-of-pocket for taking a stand on what is right and what common sense says we ought to do.”
    The ADF advocates separate changing facilities for transgender students and sent its sample policy to Palatine Township High School District 211, where a male student, who identifies as female, is demanding use of the girls locker room.
    The school granted the student access to the girls locker room, but required that he change clothes behind curtains. Now, the Department of Education is citing the school and says it must allow the transgender student complete access to the girls locker room. Sharp says this requirement not only defies natural law; it also defies legal precedent and the intent of Title IX.
    “If you look at what the precedent says, and what the most recent courts looking at this issue have found, it’s that schools can have these separate facilities,” Sharp said. “They can take steps to protect the privacy of their students as the Palatine Township School District is doing here, requiring the (transgender) student to change in a different area or a curtained-off area … all with the goal of protecting the privacy of the females in the locker room.”
    Sharp also noted that Title IX specifically allows schools to “provide separate toilet, locker room, and shower facilities on the basis of sex.” So, the Department of Education has zero basis for saying that the Palatine school is violating Title I
    Courts Support Gender-Specific Locker Rooms
    Given the Education Department’s heavy-handed directives, Sharp said many schools feel they must comply and allow students in opposite-gender facilities.

    However, courts have consistently ruled in favor of schools that require students to use facilities that match their biological gender.
    In March, a Pennsylvania federal court ruled that the University of Pittsburgh did not violate the U.S. Constitution or Title IX when it barred a female student, who identified as male, from using men’s locker rooms and bathrooms.

    Similarly, in September, a federal court in Virginia dismissed a discrimination claim by a female-to-male transgender student who sought access to the male bathrooms at a public high school.

    The court ruled that “[n]ot only is bodily privacy a constitutional right, the need for privacy is even more pronounced in the state educational system. The students are almost all minors, and public school education is a protective environment.”
    Still, the Department of Education is threatening to take away all federal funding from the Palatine Township School District if it doesn’t comply with the department’s directive to allow a transgender student access to the female locker room.

    However, before the federal government can strip the district of funds, it must first win its case in court, Sharp said. Given the clear legal precedent, Sharp predicts that the federal government will lose. He added that the school has not contacted the ADF about representing it.
    An Agenda-Driven Administration (supported by Hillary Clinton)
    If District 211 loses, the Department of Education and the American Civil Liberties Union, which is representing the transgender student at the school, will likely appeal the decision. Already, both are appealing the Pennsylvania and Virginia federal court opinions.

    Sharp said the Obama Administration is intent on pushing this issue all the way to the Supreme Court.
    “Their goal is for this to be a national thing,” he said, “that every school district in the country is subject to this same requirement – that you can’t have separate facilities, that you’ve got to allow a student to use the bathrooms of the opposite sex simply by claiming to be transgender.”
    This latest push for transgender rights began last year. That’s when the Department of Education issued a document claiming that Title IX’s sex discrimination prohibition “extends to claims of discrimination based on gender identity or failure to conform to stereotypical notions of masculinity or femininity.
    ” However, in a letter on Transgender Issues, the Alliance Defending Freedom noted that the department’s document is not legally binding. It also noted that the Virginia Court stated in its ruling that the Department of Education lacks the authority to unilaterally redefine Title IX.
    What Parents & School Districts Can Do
    Fighting the federal government can be daunting for local school districts. Yet, it’s a fight Sharp insists that local school districts can win. However, if school districts are unwilling to resist the demands of the federal government, Sharp urges parents to call the ADF for help. He said the ADF receives about 20 calls each month from parents upset about their school’s handling of transgender issues, and the organization is eager to help.
    “We realize this is an important battle,” Sharp said. “This is one that is honestly going to shape the future of America. If you get a generation that grows up being told, ‘You can’t have separate facilities for guys and girls . . .,’ What impact is that going to have on everything our country has long believed – that there are biological differences between men and women?”
    Once properly informed, parents then need to show up at school board meetings and inform board members about the law, Sharp said. “They need to be equipped with these other court cases, and findings that federal courts have said you’re not in violation of Title IX if you maintain these separate facilities. We’ve found that to be very effective.”

    ———————————————————-
    According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the Williams Institute, four in 10 transgender individuals will try to kill themselves at some point in their life. Yet, as I noted in an article last year, studies also show that 70-80% of children with transgender feelings spontaneously lose those feelings as they mature. This certainly calls into question whether accommodating self-identified transgender students is truly a compassionate course of action or a permanently damaging one.
    “We’re doing a very dangerous experiment with kids and not really sure of the consequences,” Sharp said. “We need to take a step back and make sure we’re not doing more harm than good.”

    Basic Federal Education and Bathroom Laws

    The feds — specifically, the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights — insist that drawing any distinction is sexual discrimination banned by Title IX of the basic federal education law. “The district continues to deny a (self identified?) female student the right to use the girls’ locker room,” charges Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon.

    The feds have given the school 30 days to comply, or face enforcement action.

    3 days ago – FPIW communications director Zach Freeman talked with Gov. Jay Inslee

    —————————————————————————————-
    NOVEMBER 3, 2015 THE FEDS — specifically, THE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT’S Office for Civil Rights — insist that drawing any distinction is sexual discrimination banned by Title IX of THE BASIC FEDERAL EDUCATION LAW. “The district continues to deny a female student the right to use the girls’ locker room,” charges Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon.

    Federal bureaucrats have no business rewriting the law to deny that reality. Nothing in US law suggests these “trans” rights, AND NO ONE COULD POSSIBLY BELIEVE CONGRESS EVER INTENDED TO CREATE THEM.

    Cultural “progressives” have embraced the transgender-rights agenda, but the public hasn’t. Yes, Americans today are more willing to play along with “I identify as” — BUT NOT TO THE POINT OF PRETENDING SEXUAL ORGANS DON’T EXIST.

    Uncle Sam’s insane push for transgender rights in school locker rooms

    Talk about lunatic overreach: The federal Education Department is bullying high schools across America to treat “trans” teens exactly as the sex they “identify” as — all the way up to using the same locker rooms and showers.
    Many schools have knuckled under, since the feds can withhold significant cash if they don’t. But one Illinois district is refusing to go along.
    Mind you, the Palatine, Ill., high school already lets the teen in question play on a girls’ sports team and even change in the same room, but in a curtained-off area. Staff refer to the student as “she,” and so on.
    The feds — specifically, the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights — insist that drawing any distinction is sexual discrimination banned by Title IX of the basic federal education law. “The district continues to deny a female student the right to use the girls’ locker room,” charges Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon.
    The feds have given the school 30 days to comply, or face enforcement action.
    Insanity squared:
    This railroads over other students’ privacy rights. However the kid in question “identifies,” that doesn’t change the reality of what others see in that locker room.
    Federal bureaucrats have no business rewriting the law to deny that reality. Nothing in US law suggests these “trans” rights, and no one could possibly believe Congress ever intended to create them.
    Cultural “progressives” have embraced the transgender-rights agenda, but the public hasn’t. Yes, Americans today are more willing to play along with “I identify as” — but not to the point of pretending sexual organs don’t exist.
    Look: The school has gone the extra mile to be accepting. (Is it fair to other players to let a biological male compete in a woman’s sport?) It’s just showing some respect for the views of other students — and their parents.
    The real offender here is the feds, by sending a strong and demeaning message to the rest of those girl athletes: Your privacy and your opinions don’t matter at all.
