Middle School Gives Kids ‘Genderbread’ Person Handout to Explain LGBT Terms

Kristin TateRebel Buzz Contributor

Once again, schools are doing the job of parents by introducing young children to mature topics. 

But this time, the decision cost a progressive teacher in New York her job. Health teacher Jacqueline Hall was suspended Tuesday after attempting to teach seventh-graders about gender through the use of a “genderbread” person handout.

A teacher has been placed on administrative leave because of a lesson on gender identity that has hundreds of parents outraged.

Kids at Cambridge Central School received a packet of information about sex change operations that included sexual definitions.

One dad was so concerned his child came home with this, he decided to go live on Facebook to alert other parents. Sirell Fiel says his 11-year-old son brought the packet home from Cambridge Central School Tuesday night, labeled gender identity. What he inside saw made him angry.

“It should not be allowed or tolerated period,” Fiel said.

Fiel's son said the material was handed out by a guest speaker and included graphic details about sex reassignment operations and sexual definitions.

“It’s not your right to take the innocence of my kid like that at that such a age,” Fiel said.

The 42-page handout included definitions of words including transgender, homosexual, homophobia, gay, bisexual, lesbian and "coming out." It also included a page titled "The Genderbread Person."

Of course, most public schools offer basic sex ed courses. But it's easy to see how parents may be concerned by schools teaching in-depth lessons on gender transitions. 

This appears to be an example of left-wing educators allowing their political views to seep into what is being taught. Thankfully, there was some accountability in this case because Fiel took to Facebook to tell other parents what their children were being taught. 

This should serve as a good lesson to public teachers -- both at the grade school level and in secondary education. 

Parents should have the right to decide how and when to introduce their own children to mature topics like sexual identity. And taxpayers should expect their funds will subsidize public schools that are responsible and apolitical in their curriculum.

Ms. Stephenson, “but should we not be teaching them to embrace all aspects of adolescence, even it it’s dabbling in LGBTQ matters?”
Go and dabble, and embrace it all you want. This is your agenda.

I have already posted my position.

So, if it’s OK to talk about the physical changes associated with puberty, then why is it “unnatural” to also tell them about sexual attraction? I am not specifying where said attraciton is directed, since it’s not my business, but should we not be teaching them to embrace all aspects of adolescence, even it it’s dabbling in LGBTQ matters?

Andrew Stephenson, speaking to girls about their period and pregnancy is a natural discussion to have with age appropriate details & ongoing discussions; similar discussions with boys as well.
The LGBTQ….agenda is not appropriate and not in their best interest. I have already said this all before.

You read about children and from the sounds of it, you don’t interact with them. Your posts about children have been downright nasty at times. The ghetto background rises to the surface!

So, it’s like your theoretical ownership of EV, you can’t wrap you head around the reality of what is vs what you would like it to be. And no, I’m not saying parents “own” their children, they parent them and hopefully prepare them for living in the world when they grow up. The government is interfering when they introduce a curriculum heavily loaded with socialist dogma and accuse parents of being incapable of parenting their children. Bill-24 in Alberta, Bill-89 in Ontario. You should really read up on Ben Levinson, a confessed child pornographer and the Liberal sex education curriculum in Ontario.

See what a Transactivist is pushing, watch the entire video. This person’s ideology is not uncommon. Forcing this on children is wrong.

Andrew Stephenson, did you grow up in a ghetto & the teachers didn’t inspect textbooks at the end of the year? Again, you don’t know very many 11 year old children and it shows. "

Devine’s Saskatchewan. Actually, just after, before Romanow fixed things. So, yes, ghetto.

Deflections aside, when do you teach them about sexuality? Do you not warn 10 year old girls about their periods, before they start? After they’re having sex? Nothing says “childhood innocence” quite like a pregnant 13 year old. When do you teach them?

Andrew, disagree with your declaration “11 year olds aren’t innocent” I don’t think you interact with very many."

I don’t know about you, but I remember being in grade 6, with math textbooks that were virtually unusable for saturation with obscene drawings.

A good chunk of girls, and a few boys, are already well into puberty by age 11. Typical onset’s about age 10 and 12 respectively now. When do you tell them about such things?

Isn’t this what has been going on in Ontario for a few years now under the McGinty/Wynn years? A sex ed program designed by a man in prison for interfering with a child.

Every day, more and more, educators believe that they are co-parenting, and have even more rights to the children than actual parents. SJWs without bounds or limits. This gingerbread person will reappear a few more times, and schools will not blink as fewer and fewer parents will complain. And then it becomes a norm. And then twelve-year-olds will begin demanding sex changes or become trans without really understanding what it all really means in life.

The beginning of the androgynous society.

Andrew Stephenson, so what are you saying about your 11 year old? Needs therapy? "

That they’re not small children. They have access to the internet, and even if you restrict that, they have friends that do. A good number have already started puberty at that point, so sexuality and identity is topical. “Genderbread” is a bizarre way of teaching it but the underlying topic is appropriate.

Grooming pure and simple, the left has lost any moral high ground to demonize and lie about Priests.

Andrew Stephenson you are an idiot for saying that , and i guess you must hate the Youth Justice act then. Or are they suddenly innocent when it comes to committing a crime?

Junior Grade school children should be taught, Reedin, ritin and rifmutic and that is all.

Never mind the likes of Wynne’s perverted Sex Education BS.

“11 year olds aren’t “innocent”. "

Well not after their first perv encounter in school.

Administrative leave isn’t sufficient, fire her!
Guest speakers arranged by leftist teachers should be carefully vetted along with their materials before entering any classroom.

… Gender confusion is a step in the Left’s anti-life and anti-family agenda. Teaching it to children is true evil.
