The LGBT curriculum mandate is still on schedule to be implemented in the upcoming 2020-2021 school year. I want to share with you this dangerous agenda each week by exposing the lesson plans of Garden State Equality. They are using the power of government coercion to force radical sexual and political beliefs onto students.
My forthcoming weekly emails will include images of actual lessons Garden State Equality has developed and are offering to schools. This information will help to explain why these lessons have no place in our public-school classrooms.
Please download and share the weekly resource that is linked to the email to parents, educators, legislators, and others.
We believe public schools should be neutral in their presentation of religious beliefs, worldview, and political ideology.
This week’s GSE lesson reveal is on “Transgenderism and Gender Identity”
GSE Curriculum Revealed: Transgenderism
THE LESSON: Presentation of Transgenderism and Gender Identity to Parents
These slides present a subjective view of sexual ethics and gender identities
1) GSE’s FAQ’s teach against millennia of human knowledge — that sex presents itself as male and female — is a social falsehood that oppresses everyone who disagrees. This “gender ideology” actually forces already vulnerable students to question their own identities which causes great unnecessary confusion and distress for students who already struggle with anxiety or confusion about their bodies or sense of self.
2) GSE’s FAQ’s teach “gender identity” is how one feels about their sex, even if that is opposite to their biology. They also teach “gender expression” is based on “appearance, behavior, or mannerisms.” According to GSE one’s sex, gender identity, and gender expression might all be different. These lessons would force a boy student, for example, who has interests in traditionally “feminine” things, to reconsider his “gender identity” and “expression”. These radical social ideas are unscientific beliefs about human sexuality and should not be forced into the public-school classroom. GSE regards any dissension or disagreement as discriminatory and oppressive. Here is a link to a video GSE shares as a resource for teachers to help explain gender identity to students.
THE PROBLEM: Disregard of science and documented health risks
First Problem: Studies show that 80-95% of children suffering from confusion about their gender identity, that do not receive medical intervention outgrow these feelings by the time they reach adulthood. Yet, 100% of children who receive medical intervention will have gender identity disorders persist into adulthood. Tragically, after sex reassignment surgery, people are 20x’s more likely to die from suicide. GSE’s curriculum teaches students it is good and healthy to ask themselves if their “gender identity” matches their “biological sex” in spite of all medical evidence to the contrary.
Second Problem: GSE’s dangerous agenda persuasively convinces children to deny objective reality in exchange for a falsehood. The lesson teaches and encourages all children to question biological reality and consider whether they are living life as their true selves. The view that people can choose their “gender” is wildly controversial and has no basis in science. Radical social ideology should not be in our classrooms.
THE HARM: Indoctrinates our children
This so-called inclusive view of gender identity indoctrinates our children forcing them to “rethink” their understanding of the biological differences of male and female. GSE’s curriculum teaches the very real concepts of male and female is arbitrary and has no basis in anatomy or genetics—the exact opposite of what is true! In their eyes, the historic, global, and scientific view of human sexuality is ignorant and bigoted and this is taught to our children. GSE’s curriculum demands students become allies, if not activists, to promote a new sexual ethic despite their prior beliefs.
Worldview: GSE’S curriculum instructs students to adopt a postmodern worldview of human sexuality and gender identity. Postmodernists question the fundamental meaning of words like “boy” and “girl” and the role of language in how our children think. GSE’s curriculum is thoroughly postmodernist and tells our students they must break down the relationship between a word and its meaning, in order to understand the world. This is senseless. For example, if you claim a boy is not a boy what truth have you left our students with? None. For postmodernists objective truth does not exist and feelings, not facts, determine personal reality and truth.
THE SOLUTION: Parental Rights in education
Support the right of parents to opt their child out of lessons and materials that violate their religious or moral beliefs regarding sex, sexuality or gender identity. Email email@example.com to sign our petition and to contact NJ Legislators to pass legislation to protect families from this dangerous agenda.
I want to encourage you to join one of our legislative district mobilization teams to contact elected officials about this curriculum. Please email me your interest at firstname.lastname@example.org. Finally, I urge you to share this email or the downloadable lesson file with your network of friends and pastors.
Together, we can make NJ better,
Director of Advocacy
