BC sneaks "gender fluid ideology" into sex-ed curriculum

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

On Wednesday's episode of The Gunn ShowLaura-Lynn Tyler Thompson of the 700 Club and Laura-Lynn and Friends, joined me to discuss British Columbia's new sex-ed curriculum SOGI 123.

Teachers and school trustees weren't even made aware of plans to implement the new curriculum, which introduces kindergarten students to "gender fluidity" indoctrination

WATCH my interview with Laura-Lynn to see how the province is forcing their radical gender dogma into schools despite the unanimous opposition of parents from multiple faiths and backgrounds.

Andrew says in part, " things that you, personally, are uncomfortable with…"

I am personally uncomfortable with it being forced on our children in the public schools we pay for or that it is presented as normal. Its not.
-It exists
-We should be compassionate
I acknowledge it and I will be kind, that’s it, that’s all you get, that’s all society is responsible for.

Andrew asks, “Under that definition, wouldn’t teaching a strictly traditional model of gender also be indoctrination?”

No, the answer is no because, the biology is black and white Andrew. Everything else is dress up and brainwashing and/or a response to trauma.
The norm has always been heterosexuality. Most people on earth are men or women and have sexual relations with the opposite sex. That doesn’t mean that aberrations, deviations, or what ever variation you can come up with don’t exist in the population. It just means they should not expect to dictate sexual norms in schools to children. Anything other than heterosexuality is not a sexual norm and has entirely too much attention paid to it.
Having said that, no instruction on how to be heterosexual is needed in schools.
Not the place of government , period.

Well said, and says it all.

Identity politics Andrew….that’s my point. Also, Marxism undermines the family, extended family and community; fostering group think and looking to the state to take care of you.

You don’t have a clue re: child rearing and developmental psychology, and, fail to recognize the APA position which confirms gender fluid ideology is harmful for children. Additionally, you seem to overlook this ideology creates anxious and confused children, who later become angry children….

Your needle is stuck….

Have a nice day!

Again, personal responsibility and independence are separate issues, not mutually exclusive, to gender identity. I don’t really see your point on this one.

Treating with compassion and respect requires acknowledgement of the existence of a phenomenon, which is all the curricula in question do. And, no, there’s no evidence whatsoever that telling them that homosexuality or gender fluidity exist, turns them gay or trans. What it does do is allow people that are already that way, to be comfortable exhibiting what they already are.

Whether you think it’s “delusion” or not is irrelevant. Your prerogative to think what you want, but that prerogative only extends as far as it infringes on other people. In a free and just society, people have the right to live as they want, and they have the right to do so without fear or discrimination – and yes, that door swings both ways. Teaching students to respect everyone is hardly “indoctrination”.

One final comment, your claim of “delusion” is not scientifically supportable at this time. The psychological basis is controversial with no consistent findings at best. Empirically, at least, it’s real enough to be a described medical phenomenon – gender dysphoria is well known, though now there are questions about whether it should be pathologized the way homosexuality once was, vs simply being an acknowledged, normal variation.

Oh dear, our resident Marxist has trouble recognizing when the State should stay out of matters.
Nothing hyperbolic about rearing a child in such a way he/she is encouraged to take personal responsibility; becomes independent; becomes a contributing member of society.

Gender fluid ideology explains for you a personal set of circumstances, it also claims to address those who may be in a state of confusion, I object to introducing this ideology & confusion into the school system and creating a whole appeasement strategy to ignore a range of problems for a minority of society. Treat the individual with compassion, and don’t expect society to participate in delusions, whatever they may be from day to day.

So, in my opinion, the shifting goal posts should not imposed on children via schools , and, it doesn’t much matter to me if you are offended by it.
commented 2018-03-03 13:56:40 -0500
I deliberately didn’t address it, since it’s little more than hyperbolic posturing. The “state” probably does “know best” when teaching kids about phenomena they will inevitably have to deal with in the real world. This is the entire point of education. And, yes, sometimes that will be things that you, personally, are uncomfortable with, since the real world isn’t all rainbow unicorn farts.

Under that definition, wouldn’t teaching a strictly traditional model of gender also be indoctrination? Or is it different for causes you personally believe in? A “critical” examination of the beliefs would include an acknowledgement of the possibility that it’s not black and white. Flat-out denial of the grey because it makes you uncomfortable isn’t very “critical”, is it, Tammie?
commented 2018-03-03 13:22:49 -0500
Oh Andrew, the Marxist in you deliberately forgot to address what else was in that sentence…not surprising!
Quick definition for you… Indoctrination: the process of teaching a person or group to accept a set of beliefs uncritically.
Gender fluid ideology presented in schools is indoctrination.

Andrew, I see that twice again logic and reasoning ability are evading your leftist world view. Walk toward the light. "
How so?

“Walk towards the light” … Isn’t that how bug zappers work?

“Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt commented 2018-03-03 12:35:31 -0500
Andrew’s fine with indoctrinating children”

Indoctrination isn’t the same thing as acknowledgement.
“.the State knows best mentality prevents rearing a child in such a way he/she is encouraged to take personal responsibility; becomes independent; becomes a contributing member of society; in other words a highly functional, rational human being. "
Being a rational, functional human being is not contingent on strictly binary gender identities.
commented 2018-03-03 12:35:31 -0500
Andrew’s fine with indoctrinating children; she doesn’t have any. If there ever comes a day when she does, she’s still fine with it because her Marxist ideology takes precedence over familial ties with a child….the State knows best mentality prevents rearing a child in such a way he/she is encouraged to take personal responsibility; becomes independent; becomes a contributing member of society; in other words a highly functional, rational human being.

I read someone, I think it was Ted Byfield, who said the left are obsessed with sex without procreation and procreation without sex. Must be a self loathing thing.

the preoccupation with genitalia on the left is mind-boggling. Why are they so concerned about what they think needs to be sorted out and that is the development of a child’s sexuality. Should that not be left to nature? Is it wise to mess with gender in five-year-olds? Does anyone think that a kid under 12 would even have a clue about sexual identity? This is a sickness that will haunt us for generations. Isn’t there something about tying brimstone around the necks of any who lead children astray? Then tossing them into the sea or a fire pit or some such ??? Let’s get that brimstone working shall we?

So are non-binary gender identities.

. Sorry but no matter how much you want there to be 32 genders there are not that many"
I think the concept of defining discrete categories in what is clearly a spectrum is specious.

So, you’re saying that the idea that biological traits can be changed via educational “indoctrination” is ridiculous, something completely against all logic and reason?
commented 2018-03-03 10:52:50 -0500
Ted, I agree bout fighting the good fight. People often ask me why I bother. The reason is because it is the right thing to do- stand up for truth and expose the lies before they swallow us up whole.

On the other hand I don’t expect much success because God has sent a deluding influence on the world. His greatest judgement is to give people what they ask for.

Psalm 1
How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.
4 The wicked are not so,
But they are like chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the wicked will perish.

Psalm 2
Why are the nations in an uproar
And the peoples devising a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth take their stand
And the rulers take counsel together
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
3 “Let us tear their fetters apart
And cast away their cords from us!”
4 He who sits in the heavens laughs,
The Lord scoffs at them.

Drew, CTV Ottawa edited the footage of Trudeau yesterday and didn’t broadcast the idiotic PM struggling to remember his lines concerning steel imports and exports. He must have been given a couple of takes….

With the Canadian deep state and the judiciary up to SCOC, plus quasi-judicial kangaroo courts (HRC’s), all populated by cultural Marxists, there is very little chance now to reverse the Canadian slide into depravity.

Here’s how I feel about it: Do not go gently into that good night. Rage, rage, against the dying of the light!

Thank you, courageous Canadians from coast to coast to coast, for fighting to save Canada from this madness!

WHO are these Demented Traitors? This has nothing to do with education and everything to do with indoctrination and control. These people need to be steered into the correct direction for our children, if they were, I’m sure they would respond.
