And it is not sexist to point out that it is largely women we see, being as schools have become unsafe workplaces for men. Going back in time just a short way and we saw the ladies as eminently suited to the teaching profession. Caring, nurturing, filled to the brim with empathy and 'conflict resolution skills' and of course naturally endowed with superior verbal communication skills. Just the ticket for teaching kiddies. They talked us into it.
But what have they brought us other than spinless acquiesence to and implementation of soul and mind-damaging curricula.
There are some sections of society that are constantly complaining that they are victims. They complain about sexism. They complain about genderism. They complain about 'privilege'. They complain about racism. They complain about 'oppression'. They complain to Our Kids. That they have full access to every week day.
But it is they who are guilty of all of the above list of woes. They project their warped perspectives onto others so as to condemn them. And they teach our children.
Several instances were brought into Tavern conversations. Rebecca Urban in the Oz Bar and Tony Perkins in the US Room gave some examples. So did Pete Baklinski in the Canadian Room. So, ladies first and let's hear from Rebecca.
Victorian schools adopt ‘anti-privilege’ feminist clubs
Schoolyard “feminist collectives” are springing up across the country as young women are presented with a grim picture of gender equality by a new wave of education programs that place “white, male privilege” and“hegemonic masculinity” at the root of family violence.
Northcote High School, Brunswick Secondary College, Suzanne Cory High, St Helena Secondary College and the independent Korowa Anglican Girls School in Melbourne have followed Fitzroy High School in establishing feminist collectives or clubs in recent times. South Australia’s Glenunga International High School also runs a feminism club that is offered to students as a co-curricular activity.
No 'potentially' about it m'dear. It is designed to do that and has been succeeding for a while now.Meanwhile, schools throughout Victoria and the ACT and internationally in Argentina, Brazil and Berlin have taken up the Fitzroy High School Feminist Collective’s teaching resource, Fightback, despite concerns it simplifies the issue of violence in the community and potentially alienates boys and men.
As The Australian reported on Wednesday, teachers are being encouraged to develop feminist collectives as part of the Victorian Labor government’s $21 million Respectful Relationships program to tackle family violence, which promotes Fightback as a classroom resource for students from Year 9 upwards.
No. It is indoctrination. It is AgitProp. It is a betrayal of the children, the parents and society. But what would anyone expect those two to say any differently.While heavily criticised by Victoria’s opposition, as well as several education experts, the program has attracted the support of Greens MP Adam Bandt and federal Labor deputy leader Tanya Plibersek, who said yesterday that “getting students talking about respectful relationships, including from a feminist perspective, is a great thing”.
Restart old battles? Hello. This is the same old one-way war that has been raging non-stop for two friggin' generations.Mr Bandt said he was proud that young women in his electorate were behind the program. “Instead of trying to restart old battles, culture war conservatives would do well to remember that even Malcolm Turnbull calls himself a feminist now,” he said.
It is feminist 'negative attitudes' from start to finish.Designed to educate students about “negative attitudes ... that contribute to high rates of sexism and discrimination, and ultimately, violence against women”, Fightback paints a worrying picture of inequality in Australia.
Oh yes, the pay gap statistics. They ought to be prosecuted.In one activity, students are told there are “common perceptions” about equality, including that women are already equal, that we are in a post-feminist era or that men suffer inequality too.Students are shown statistics on the pay gap between the sexes and women’s representation in politics, business, sport and film and are asked: “So, are we equal?”
A recurring theme throughout the program, as with Respectful Relationships, is the notion of “privilege”: that some groups have advantages over others because of their birth identity.“Being born white in Australia, you have advantages,” the guide says. “By being born male, you have advantages … that you may not approve of or think you are entitled to, but that you gain anyway because of your status as male.”
Racism. Sexism. Hello.
Would he encourage students passionate about being boys, or white? Pig's arse he would.The Fitzroy High School Feminist Collective started in 2013 as a lunchtime book club that, according to its website, “revealed a sense of anger and frustration about gender inequality”.Education Minister James Merlino praised the program. “I always encourage students to pursue interests they are passionate about and to lead student projects and organisations,” he said.
As if Oz was bad, look at Canada. Look at the US. That is a larger population with greater scope for infiltration and destruction of minds. And they can be quite blatent about it.Opposition education spokesman Nick Wakeling said he had reservations about such programs and they would be scrapped by a Coalition state government.Federal Education Minister Simon Birmingham said “the No 1 focus of our classrooms” should be on core skills, starting with literacy and numeracy.
The Canadians come right out with their criminal teachers and give them conference platforms. Here,Pete Baklinski tells of a particularly boastful pervert teacher:
Lesbian teacher: How I convince kids to accept gay ‘marriage’, starting at 4 years oldA primary grade lesbian teacher from an Ontario public school revealed in a workshop at a homosexual activist conference for teachers earlier this month how she uses her classroom to convince children as young as four to accept homosexual relationships.
Sick. She has her sexual proclivities and insists on forcing them onto captive kiddies. And she, along with so many other female teachers is alowed to get away with it because.... well,,, she is nurturin' innit?“And I started in Kindergarten. What a great place to start. It was where I was teaching. So, I was the most comfortable there,” Pam Strong said at the conference, attended by LifeSiteNews.
And so to that other Melbourne in sunny Florida. At least they have triple-lane highways full of lawyers seeking work. Tony tells:
Florida School Up to Its Necklace in Legal Trouble
Making a fashion statement wasn’t the point of a 9th grader’s cross necklace in Florida. Making a statement of faith was. And to her LGBT activist teacher, that was the problem. At Riverview High School in Hillsborough, a freshman girl barely set down her books on her desk when Ms. Lora Riedas pointed to her small cross pendant and said, “I need you to take your necklace off.” Stunned, the girl asked why. The teacher refused to answer and instead barked that it was “disrespectful” and repeated her demand. Not wanting to seem disrespectful, the teenager did what she was told.
Upset, her parents contacted our friends at Liberty Counsel who sent a letter to the superintendent explaining that it was the teacher who was disrespectful. “In banning cross necklaces from three different students in her classroom, Ms. Riedas has ‘intentionally violate[d] or den[ied] a student’s legal rights.’
The right to wear a cross necklace is clearly established. There is no question that students have the right to wear religious jewelry, despite any specious claim of ‘gang affiliation’ by Ms. Riedas. Subsequent to her cross ban, Ms. Reidas has subjected at least one of the students ‘to unnecessary embarrassment or disparagement,’ in singling the student out for false allegations of student behavior violations.”This is exactly the kind of anti-faith hostility that flourished under the Obama administration.
Of course, one look at Ms. Riedas’s classroom and it’s obvious where that hostility stems from.
Plastered with rainbow flags, buttons, and propaganda, the teacher is a forceful LGBT advocate. At the beginning of the year, Liberty Counsel points out, she even put rainbow stickers on her students' folders without their permission. When one student peeled hers off, she noticed that she was treated with more hostility than her peers. Talk about hypocrisy!
This teacher is banning crosses on one hand and engaging in “wholesale LGBT activism” on the other.
If anything’s offensive, it’s that!
“Ms. Riedas has further engaged in impermissible LGBT political activism in the classroom, and has indicated her intent to further do so during instructional time,” the letter claims. “Ms. Riedas is planning to promote GLSEN’s ‘Day of Silence’ coercive political activities during instructional time in her classroom this April 21, 2017.”None of this is a surprise to Ms. Riedas’s Twitter followers. The teacher’s feed is full of advice about “how to talk to kids about what it means to be an LGBT ally” and how to engage on the transgender bathroom issue. And according to school policy, posting these things isn’t the problem — posting them during class hours is. As Liberty Counsel reminds Riverview High, “It is the policy of the Board that students, staff members, and District facilities not be used for promoting the interests of any non-school agency or organization, public or private, without the approval of the superintendent.”
Ahhhhh. And the teacher's beliefs? I am not one for making schools 'belief-free zones'. I am not even against teachers wearing crosses.Together with her attorneys, this brave 9th grader is asking for the right to express her faith, which is already guaranteed to her by the Constitution. Students should never have to check their beliefs at the school house door — or anywhere else for that matter.
I am against the coercion of children into homosexuality. I am against schools persecuting christians.
I am not 'Tolerant' on such matters.
Where's my whetstone.
Have a drink.
Drip some on your blade.
