‘Gender inclusive’ school district says drop ‘boys and girls,’ call kids ‘purple penguins’

Editors Opinion – At the end of this year I will ask the readers to vote on the stupidest schoolstupidity.com story.  I think my head will explode if this one doesn’t win the prize and the reason is simple.  If anything in the next few months ends up being more completely moronic, I just think I will lose what little faith I have left that anyone in our education system has an IQ over 75!  I have nothing more to say, this level of stupidity speaks for itself.  I really had to double check to make sure this story wasn’t really something from TheOnion.com sadly though, this is a factual story.

I will only add this one statement, to the people of Lincoln Nebraska, if a single member of this school board who supported this idiocy remains in office after your next elections, you too are idiots!

The fine folks who run the school system in Lincoln, Neb., are on a campaign to make their classrooms gender-inclusive. And that means teachers will no longer refer to boys and girls … as boys and girls.

“Don’t use phrases such as ‘boys and girls,’ ‘you guys,’ ‘ladies and gentlemen,’ and similarly gendered expressions to get kids’ attention,” reads a handout from the Lincoln Public Schools that was given to teachers.

The handout was part of an effort to educate teachers and administrators about transgender issues, educators told the Lincoln Journal Star.

“The agenda we’re promoting is to help all kids succeed,” Brenda Leggiardo the district’s coordinator of social workers and counselors told the newspaper. “We have kids who come to us with a whole variety of circumstances, and we need to equitably serve all kids.”

So instead of asking boys and girls to line up as boys or girls, teachers have been encouraged to segregate the children by whether they prefer skateboards or bikes, or whether they like milk or juice.

“Always ask yourself, ‘Will this configuration create a gendered space?’” the handout stated.

    Social Darwinism in effect. I’m interested in seeing what kinds of people will result from this moronic experiment.

    If you read the whole article their is a clue everyone should notice. Their is a official named Russ Uhing. When I read it I mentally miss said his name. I thought it said for a moment it said unhing as in unhinged meaning not mentally right.

    Now this gender neutral stuff is just dumb. Boys are boys and girls are girls. Until they are many many years older and understand that they like the other gender or the same gender as they are that is a choice to be made as adults and not children barley out of diapers. This neutral stuff will just confuse them. They need to know it is OK to be a boy or a girl. After all all children are born with certain body equipment that tells everyone that they are a boy or a girl. Until the day comes were all children are born blank slates with no gender at all until they chose a gender. Once that happens you can use neutral gender terms until a child picks a particular gender be it a boy or a girl.

    Greetings from Lincoln.
    There was a strong enough negative response from parents to cause the school board to backpedal on the issue, at least publicly. Will this issue carry over to the next election? I doubt it. Lincolnites are generally an apathetic bunch with short memories. Yup, we’re idiots.
