In the current year, impressionable middle school students are learning all about gender, sexuality, and transgenderism from an animated anti-science “Genderbread Person.”
According to Baptist News, the “Genderbread Person” is “a model for understanding and teaching gender and sexual diversity introduced by Sam Killermann, a social justice comedian and activist who lives in Austin, Texas, and author of ‘The Social Justice Advocate’s Handbook: A Guide to Gender Paperback.’”
As you can see, gender is completely detached from biological sex. What’s more, even biological sex is on a spectrum of female-ness and male-ness.
And now it’s made its way into the public-school system. Yay!
In November, a teacher from Cambridge, New York, was suspended for using the “Genderbread Person” to teach seventh-graders about explicit sex, gender, and transgenderism, including hormone treatments, trans surgeries and how to stuff a sock in your underpants.
An irate father who found such materials from his son, 11, took to Facebook Live to express his outrage.
“Genital reconstruction surgery,” said the father, Sirell Fiel. “Is that really something an 11-year-old kid should be learning and knowing about? No. I don’t think so.”
“It should not be allowed or tolerated. Period. It’s not your right to take the innocence of my kid like that at that … age,” he said.
The teacher, Jacqueline Hall, was subsequently suspended with pay.
Apparently, Hall “brought in a member of the Pride Center of the Capital Region, an LGBTQ group, to speak to her 7th grade and 10th grade students,” notes Fox News. “The speaker brought with her a four-page handout for seventh-graders that listed LGBTQ terminology. The handout asks students to match terms like homophobia, intersex, polyamory, pansexual, bisexual and cisgender to their definitions, according to the paper.”
The “Genderbread Man” nonsense, as you might suspect, has been used in Canada as a tool to teach elementary students since at least this past summer. CBC reports:
Angela Plaunt, a teacher at Sir James Dunn elementary school in Wawa, Ont., has been approaching gender issues in a unique way. She has incorporated “The Genderbread Person”— a gingerbread, gender-free cutout— into her lessons on human sexuality.
Plaunt hopes that by using a character familiar to most kids, the gingerbread man, they can approach complex issues in a simple, straightforward way, and start thinking of gender as something beyond sexuality.
“We display Genderbread Person on the overhead, then talk about how this is a cookie,” said Plaunt. “We all know the gingerbread man, we’ve all decorated one and put it on the Christmas tree.”
“Your brain [is] what tells you what to identify with— I’m a man or a woman, boy or girl,” continued Plaunt. “And your heart is your expression of love, and if you express that in a masculine or feminine way.”
“Your genitalia is what determines your sex, and your expression of gender is the outward expression — how you dress, or if you put makeup on,” she added.
