Mothers in Pennsylvania as well as other residents in the state ripping the department of education for its ridiculous suggestion that kids start using insanely ‘woke’ pronouns that make absolutely no sense to rational people.
The department is recommending that kids use ‘non-binary’ pronouns like “ne, ve, ze/zie and xe” so as not to ‘offend’ anyone through the use of an ‘incorrect’ assumption about their gender.
“In addition to the traditional pronouns (he/him, she/her, they), some people prefer to use gender-neutral pronouns, such as ne, ve, ze/zie and xe. If you don’t know a student’s preferred personal pronoun, it’s always best to ask,” the Pennsylvania DOE said, according to Fox News.
The website goes on to push the biologically false claim that there are more than two genders, defining “binary gender” as the “faulty concept that there are only two genders: male and female.”
The outlet went on to note that the Pennsylvania DOE website’s ‘recommendations’ stem from a 2013 article by Carrie Kilman titled, “The Gender Spectrum,” in which the author claims that “some kids know their gender identities and birth sexes don’t match almost as soon as they begin to talk,” while adding that kids can identify as ‘gender fluid’ as young as three years old.
“This article shares research and insights on how gender identity differs from biological sex, and how educators can help support students who are gender non-conforming or gender expansive,” the Pennsylvania DOE website says, citing the article.
Mothers and other concerned residents of the state are furious.
“This is grooming of our children,” said Veronica Gemma, a parent and chair at the PA Economic Growth PAC, Fox News reported. “[W]hen it comes to sexuality, whatever they identify as, that’s their personal business. And it’s not academics. It doesn’t belong in the classroom.”
“They need to focus on the terrible reading scores in this state, the terrible math scores in this state… [Instead,] they’re focused on indoctrinating this next generation to change the fabric of our country,” she added.
Another mother, Megan Eileen, asked in May, “As a Pennsylvania parent, I’d like to know what qualifies them to call the concept of biological gender as faulty?”
“Why do they feel that it’s appropriate to teach this to a third-grader? It’s not appropriate. So many children in Pennsylvania are struggling with grade competencies, particularly after the long COVID-19 mitigation disruptions,” Eileen said.
“As a mom, my children know who they are and they were created in God’s image. So God created a man and a woman and that’s it. There’s only two genders,” Gemma said.
“The [Pennsylvania Department of Education] needs to stop spending money and classroom hours on leftist indoctrination and focus on academics. I think that’s something most parents and teachers, regardless of political affiliation, agree on,” she added, according to Fox News.
Pennsylvania state Rep. Barbara Gleim said she believes she knows where a lot of this insanity orginates.
“I think that a lot of this is coming down from the Biden administration through his executive orders,” she told the outlet.
“I’m not anti-trans, but these discussions have a time and a place. And I don’t think that elementary school [and] middle school are the time or the place for these discussions,” she added.
Meanwhile, Kara Kowalski, a resident of York, Pa., told Fox News: “I’m not a parent, but I have three nieces who are young. They’re eight, six and three. And I pretty much spend every day and every second that I can with them. I’m gay myself. But I don’t align with all of this.”
Feminist writer of “The Abolition of Sex,” Kara Dansky, who has regularly spoken out against the gender identity movement, told the outlet: “I think that what we’re seeing is a vicious combination of woman hatred and greed.”
“I absolutely think that our society should be accepting of people who do not wish to conform to sex stereotypes. That’s a good thing. We have been saying for decades that women especially, ought to be able to transcend sex stereotypes. And we should champion and accept that,” she said.
“But that’s very different for a school or an education department trying to persuade children that they actually are the opposite sex,” she added. “That’s extremely dangerous.”
“It may seem unrelated, but these efforts to use different kinds of pronouns are deliberately designed to make us dissociate our minds from the material reality of biological sex,” Dansky said. “It may seem like just a nice thing to do to refer to someone using their ‘preferred pronouns,’ but the problem with it is it desensitizes us. And… it dissociates our minds from the material reality of sex.”
