New Jersey plans to indoctrinate elementary school students about ‘gender identity’ in lessons that might leave some kids confused about their sex or what sex means. For example, sample lessons suggest that you can have “boy parts” yet be a girl. And teachers were told “Being a boy or a girl doesn’t have to mean you have those parts.”
New Jersey public school second graders will be getting lessons related to gender identity this fall under state sex education guidelines that will take effect in September.
The standards listed “performance expectations” for second graders, which include discussing “the range of ways people express their gender and how gender role stereotypes may limit behavior.”
Educators in the Garden State are preparing to carry out the teaching standards, which were established in 2020 but not required to be enacted until Sept. 2022.
One school district in the state distributed sample lesson plans indicating first graders could be taught they can have “boy parts” but “feel like” a girl.
“Planned sex education lessons for first-graders in New Jersey will include discussions of gender identity — outraging some parents and Republican politicians,” reports the New York Post:
A 30-minute lesson called “Pink, Blue and Purple” aims to teach the 6-year-olds to define “gender, gender identity and gender role stereotypes”… It also includes instructions for teachers to tell students that their gender identity is up to them, according to materials …. posted online.
“You might feel like you’re a boy even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are ‘girl’ parts,” the lesson plan says.
“You might feel like you’re a girl even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are ‘boy’ parts. And you might not feel like you’re a boy or a girl, but you’re a little bit of both. No matter how you feel, you’re perfectly normal!”
A lesson plan for second-graders, titled “Understanding Our Bodies,” includes an illustrated discussion of human genitals … “Tell students: ‘There are some body parts that mostly just girls have and some parts that mostly just boys have,’” it says.
A note to teachers also says: “Being a boy or a girl doesn’t have to mean you have those parts, but for most people this is how their bodies are.”
