The degree to which the liberal left has taken political correctness has just gotten simply insane. A school district in Lincoln Nebraska recently conducted teacher training where they were coached to refrain from using gender terminology with the children for fear of offending them. Teachers were encouraged to use terms like “hey campers” and, yes you’ve guessed it, “purple penguins”! They were encouraged not to have the children line up as boys and girls but as perhaps, even and odd birth dates.
Wow; ok kids, which is probably offensive as well because a “kid” is a baby goat so let me get in the genre, “purple penguins”, let’s go to the bathroom! Everybody line up by odd or even birth date. How’s that work’n out for ya parents?
The degree to which these obtuse gender hounds go to try and create an environment where no one feels comfortable talking to anyone about anything without first consulting their left-wing cannon of politically correct terms is simply incomprehensible!
Having raised five children and having six grandchildren I have learned that gender is just a fact of life. It has nothing to do with equality, nothing to do with ability, nothing to do with intelligence, nothing to do with drive or determination! It has everything to do with how God made us! The Bible tells us that God forms us in the womb; “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you” Jeremiah 1:5. So to take the gender of school children to this degree of insanity is simply off-the-charts-polito-phobic madness!
If you have children in school let me know what you think.
