Nebraska Teachers Told to Drop “Boys” and “Girls” and Use Gender Neutral Term “Purple Penguins”….

Moonbattery carried to ridiculous levels….

kids(Via NRO) A Nebraska school district has instructed its teachers to stop referring to students by “gendered expressions” such as “boys and girls,” and use “gender inclusive” ones such as “purple penguins” instead.

“Don’t use phrases such as ‘boys and girls,’ ‘you guys,’ ‘ladies and gentlemen,’ and similarly gendered expressions to get kids’ attention,” instructs a training document given to middle-school teachers at the Lincoln Public Schools.

“Create classroom names and then ask all of the ‘purple penguins’ to meet on the rug,” it advises.

The document also warns against asking students to “line up as boys or girls,” and suggests asking them to line up by whether they prefer “skateboards or bikes/milk or juice/dogs or cats/summer or winter/talking or listening.”

“Always ask yourself . . . ‘Will this configuration create a gendered space?’” the document says.

The instructions were part of a list called “12 steps on the way to gender inclusiveness” developed by Gender Spectrum, an organization that “provides education, training and support to help create a gender sensitive and inclusive environment for children of all ages.”  (read more)

    Pray tell how do you create gender sensitive environment by demanding that there be no gender specific references , or gender inclusivness by demanding gender oblitaration?

    Who comes up with this stuff???

      LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A senior Twitter engineer hailed as one of the most important gay or transgender people in the tech industry was sentenced on Tuesday to three years probation after pleading guilty to domestic violence charges, San Francisco prosecutors said.

    I sense LGBT activists behind Gender Spectrum. The idea seems to be to pretend the 97% is not real so the 3% can pretend they’re the norm? There’s a difference between acceptance and distortion of reality. I’m really alarmed at the Progressive’s mind bending, starting in grade school. It’s what we’ve discussed here before: Change language and you can change thought processes and behavior. I don’t mean in this case that such re-labeling is going to make a child gay, transgendered, or bisexual. It’s simply designed to condition kids to believe we’re gender neutral beings and that there is no predominance of sexual preference or identity in our nature (or as an evolutionary trait), when plain facts say otherwise. But then, Progressives argue from feelings. not facts.

I weep daily over what my grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews etc. are facing. And to think, my biggest fear growing up was “how is this desk I am under going to protect me from a nuclear blast”. Now, the threats are EVERYWHERE from so many sources and MUCH more likely. I do appreciate your “timely and pertinent” comment, which illustrates precisely where we are today, but I wish we had a solution other than our “dark humor”. Not faulting you my friend, just with facing my own impending mortality, I feel impelled and helpless….it is a condition in which I cannot find relief. The Treehouse though is my comfort in this world gone mad. God Bless you Yak, and all who perch here.

          I turn to the Bible when I get to the point that I want off the turning world. I don’t know that we can stop this because it is further proof of what God told us would happen. IMHO II Timothy Chapter 3 perfectly describes what we’re seeing today.

          II Timothy Chapter 3: 1-9
          This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
          For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
          Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
          Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.
          Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
          For of this sort are they which into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
          Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
          Now as Jan-nes and Jam-bres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
          But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

          II Timothy Chapter 3:12-13
          Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
          But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

    A teacher “friend” shared this with me last week:

    “Ohio’s Department of Education embraced 85 words that each senior should know inside and out by the time they graduate. Yes, 85 words. We as teachers have to submit all kinds of paper work to our district. Our district sends it on to the state for certification. Now this is the truth. I had to submit a document that explained how I will include these 85 words in my lessons. All of us had to do this.”

    In other recent thread there were several people claiming that low IQ causes foolishness. I would be willing to bet good money that those who came up with this particular foolishness have high IQs.

    I call it foolishness because that is what it takes to look reality square in the face and attempt to deny it.

    Furthermore, as a reminder and warning:

    No one should doubt the intellectual sophistication of the National Socialists. Elie Wiesel discovered that, contrary to the myth that the Nazis were uneducated brutes, most of the killers of the death squads had college degrees, including some with Ph.D.s in philosophy, literature, and even theology. Jaroslav Krejci likewise found that while fascist movements in general tend to draw heavily from the lower middle-class, in those countries where fascism has been most successful—namely, Italy and Germany—students and the university-educated were strongly represented. One study of a local Nazi party organization shows that 43.3 percent were university students.

A true opium for the people is a belief in nothingness after death–the huge solace of thinking that for our betrayals, greed, cowardice, murders we are not going to be judged.”
