The state of Washington recently made a decision, without consulting or notifying parents, to begin children on a new, liberal teaching track about gender, starting in kindergarten. Life Site News reports: "Elementary students will be taught transgender theory – the notion that gender is a “social construct” rather than a biological reality – beginning in kindergarten, under new educational standards quietly adopted by Washington state."
Kindergartners will be taught that there are "many different ways to express gender." By fourth and fifth grade, students will be taught that gender identity and sexual orientation are two distinct and fluid concepts. For example, you can be born a boy, but identify as a girl and be attracted to boys. Students will be heavily indoctrinated with the idea that you must respect and be tolerant of all expressions of gender and sexuality.
Critics rightly point out that this puts students in a position where they will be academically and socially "wrong" if they hold traditional religious values. “Parents should be concerned about whether these standards are age-appropriate, as well as whether the manner in which these topics will be taught may undermine the values held by their family,” the Family Policy Institute of Washington said. “It is frightening to think that students who hold traditional beliefs about gender and sexual identity may have to choose between accepting politically correct talking points or failing assignments and being ostracized by school administrators.”
