Trans the Kids with Professional Development
How teachers are trained to engage your children with Gender studies.
Gender expression (how a person publicly expresses or presents their gender) is a function of time, and location: Ancient Egyptian Men and women both wore eye makeup; in 1600s in France women wore corsets for beauty; men wore animal skins and feathers in the Zulu tribe; in the 1920s, American men had to wear hats because it was only proper; women today in Afghanistan wear a full niqab or burqa because it’s the law.
So it’s not surprising in an ever changing world that you will see American women wear blue jeans today that were ONLY made for men in the 1870s. I spent my college years in blue jeans, ponytail and sweatshirts with no makeup, dressing the same as all the boys in the math department. Never thinking about how I expressed my gender because I was worried about passing partial differential equations and how I was paying for my car insurance.
Today things are different. We are overly focused on gender and how we present that to other people, not recognizing that it changes with time and location. And this unhealthy over-focus on gender is right in New Jersey public schools. We have teachers that want to foster the “healthy gender development” of your YOUNGER child, even in elementary school. In fact, teachers in Lawrence Township Public Schools in K-6 could take a professional development course from Dr. Lisa Dinella about that exact topic.
Dr. Dinella is also known for her papers on “Gender-typing of children’s toys: Causes, consequences, and correlates. Sex Roles: A Research Journal”, “Cognitive theories of gender development”, “Children’s gender-typed toy interests: Does propulsion matter?”-Archives of Sexual Behavior” “Sex-typed personality traits and gender identity as predictors of young adults’ career interests”- Archives of Sexual Behavior”. All of which over focuses on how parents and society impacts gender development in children, which is just creepy to me. Equally creepy, was article she wrote for the layperson:“It’s Never Too Early To Teach A Toddler How To Be A Strong Woman”. And here, I just was worried about keeping my active, rambunctious toddler alive to become a woman.
Dr. Dinella’s article reads like a complete overcorrection on how to raise a girl and all could I read was “girls rule and boys drool.” I should read her other articles but I just can’t. From a person who doesn’t subscribe to male/female gender roles as pushed by American society in 2023, it just looks like intellectual rubbish to me.
No thank-you. No thank-you for the parenting advice, and no, I don’t want the teachers to be involved in my child’s gender development either. You are going to get it all wrong and screw the kids up, just like you are doing now. Too many teens are already gender confused, you don’t need to add to it and make things worse.
Also, I don’t want the school teachers taking lessons like “Understanding sexual orientation and gender identity is key to reaching non-conforming students and providing a safe and successful learning environment.” You need to stay away from my kid’s sexual orientation, non-binary outfits and for God’s sake, do not engage my child in “identity play.” Teachers are NOT there to develop my child’s self identity. You are there to teach math, reading and writing. I’m not even sure if I trust you with history and science anymore from the things I see coming out of the public schools.
I don’t know enough about education to understand what they are trying to do, but I know enough about parenting to understand what they are actually doing. They are crossing healthy boundaries and stepping into my role as parent. It is my job to identify and explain gender roles, not yours. It is my job to guide and nurture my child’s identity, not yours. If my non-confirming child needs something special for the classroom, I’ll give you a call for a 504 meeting. If my child wears all black and skulls (which she did, just like I did), it is not your job to find out if this reads into something about her sexual orientation.
Believe it or not teachers, we have it covered. Just because you took any of these classes doesn’t make you a better parent to my child than I would be.
I can't even comment anymore. Its renting to much space in my head. If parents keep allowing children to participate in these so called schools, then they will get what is being thrown to their kids. Most might never recover. Can't talk resilience children are committing suicide because others are beating up on them and raping of them. Bus drivers and administration ignoring everything for the sake of MONEY. Esser funds, paychecks.
If parents don't start doing more, this will continue and we will never get out from under. This should have been squashed long ago, just like other things no one paid attention to, yet here we are with generations of children being persecuted, its a ritual thing.
Bravo! Love the expression “intellectual rubbish.” Every morning, before my child leaves for the re-education camp, oops, I mean public high school, I say “don’t let them mess with your head.” Being puzzled together over how seemingly well-functioning human beings can get suckered into this shit-show has strengthened our bond.
