A preschool in the Denver area has booted a 4-year-old from its classes, telling her parents her attendance was “not a good fit,” after the parents questioned the cooperative about the books being taught, including those promoting homosexuality and transgenderism.
“I think at this age they don’t know what bias is,” she told the newspaper. “They could have kids from Mars and they would still play with each other. It’s not that she isn’t exposed to diversity, because it is the world we live in, but how are they having these conversations?”
The disagreement arose when the girl’s parents “raised questions about books read in their class, including ones that told the stories about same-sex couples and worms unsure about their gender,” the report said.
Sinclair wanted to opt her daughter out of what she viewed as sex education.
But officials with Montview, who boast on their website that they embrace “diversity and inclusion as essential to a balanced education,” had no tolerance for any deviation from their teaching strategy.
Sinclair reported that she’s uncertain exactly what teaching went on, but said one day her daughter came home and was “worried that her dad might no longer like girls,” the report said.
A meeting with the school followed, and the report said two days later “Sinclair was handed a letter saying it was the girl’s last day in school and that the situation was ‘not a good fit.'”
She explained that her daughter is fully familiar with a diverse community, is part of a biracial family and “has grown up with Muslim and Western culture,” the report said.
“There was no consideration for the bias against my family’s culture, faith and concerns,” Sinclair said of the school, which charges up to almost $800 a month for kindergarten attendance, and lower fees for preschool.
The report said the school dispatched a letter from parent Lance Rushton, a consultant for “inclusion and diversity.”
The letter instructed parents in how they should talk with children about books.
He addresses the inclusion of everyone, regardless of their gender, gender identity, color of skin, cultural identity, religious belief, world view, age, body type, bodily ability, mental ability, family structure, economic status.
He suggested parents find books that interest their child, but screen them for diversity and “an inclusive moral lesson.”
“Pick books that focus on different family structures, belief systems, cultural values and understandings, social position, historical trauma or economic circumstances,” the consultant advised.
The school declined to respond to the Post, or WND, for comment. On Thursday, it had a website statement that it was closed for a school break.
However, the presentation of alternative lifestyles, and a corresponding condemnation of those whose own life choices don’t support those equivalencies, is expanding – even worldwide.
WND reported only a few years ago that an organization in Scotland was delivering DVDs to every primary school specifically to teach children “alternative families.”
A report then from the Christian Institute said Stonewall Scotland, a pro-homosexual organization, had been given almost $20,000 from the Awards for All scheme run by the lottery.
The funding were to be used to pay for DVDs that celebrate same-sex duos, to be delivered to primary schools across the nation.
A related issue arose about the same time in the United States with the adoption in California of a law that allows students to decide which gender they want to be – and to use the locker rooms, restrooms and other facilities intended for that gender.
The conflict moved onto the television cameras, and when a prominen... along with another guest, he provoked outrage by signing off with a respectful, “Hey, good to talk to you ladies.”
The program hostess was a woman. But the other “lady,” despite maintaining the distinctively female XX chromosomes, had “transitioned” to representing herself as a male.
The sign-off came from Randy Thomasson of SaveCalifornia.com, an organization that promotes traditional family values. The group has warned parents for several years already that they should pull their children out of the California public school system because of the sex indoctrination laws the state has adopted in recent years.
Thomasson was on CNN alongside Masen Davis, who works for a transgender-rights group.
Davis had responded: “Thomasson’s attempt to disrespect my own gender identity by referring to me as a ‘lady’ said more about him than me. (I’m not lady, and clearly he is no gentleman),” Davis said. “I am comfortable in my own skin, and proud of my journey as a transgender man. I have heard, though, from many transgender people and allies who are very upset by his shallow attempt to mis-gender me. Failing to honor the gender identity of a transgender person is a common way for anti-equality zealots to try to undermine our credibility and humanity.”
Thomasson offered an explanation.
“At the beginning of the interview, the liberal host calls the woman who is a transsexual activist ‘sir,’ and refers both to her and I as ‘gentlemen,'” he said. “But at the end of the interview I say ‘good to talk to you ladies,’ because both the host and my bearded opponent are indeed biological females. (Of course, the bearded Masen Davis didn’t like this fact at all and she’s complaining to CNN about me – how tyrannical and anti-free-speech!)”
The issue of “open restrooms” for transgenders and others currently is raging both in North Carolina, which adopted a law limiting the progressive political agenda, and in Georgia, where the governor vetoed a bill that had been approved by the legislature on the topic.
Back in 2009, WND reported when Judge Frank Roesch of California’s Alameda Superior Court refused permission for parents to opt their elementary-age children out of a mandatory pro-homosexual curriculum, calling them bigots and refusing to recognize their right to have their own beliefs.
Similar disputes have appeared, literally, around the world, in Estonia, Hong Kong, Finland and more.
Five years ago, California approved a law demanding that schools promote homosexuality and other alternative sexual lifestyles to children – without even telling parents. That prompted critics to express that government schools no longer are morally safe for children.
“We were unprepared for what we encountered. Book after book after book contained stories and anecdotes that weren’t merely X-rated and pornographic, but which featured explicit descriptions of sex acts between preschoolers; stories that seemed to promote and recommend child-adult sexual relationships; stories of public masturbation, anal sex in restrooms, affairs between students and teachers, five-year-olds playing sex games, semen flying through the air,” said the report.
The report was posted online by Jim Hoft at the Gateway Pundit blog after it was obtained from Breitbart.tv co-founder Scott Baker, who said the recommended children’s reading assignments needed attention.
One of the earliest fights over the issue flared a full decade ago, in 2006, when Lexington, Massachusetts, parents were outraged because their second-grade son was read a fantasy book in school about two princes getting married.
Then the teacher told them because same-sex “marriage” was legal in their state at that time there is no way a mother or father can opt out a child from such experiences.
“We are outraged,” parents Rob and Robin Wirthlin told the local Article 8 Alliance. “This is a highly charged social issue. Why are they introducing it in the second grade? And we cannot present our family’s point of view to our children if they don’t tell us what they’re saying to them.”
