Teaching how to be a fruit loop. Proof positive that public schools are indoctrination Centerís for the SJW agenda.

Her job isn't teaching gender identification. It's no different than if she were handing out pamphlets on comparing violins to flutes, and why different people would choose one or the other....but she's a science teacher. It's not relevant to her job, and the school didn't tell her to do it. It's a controversial topic (gender unicorn?).

Read up on this latest example with middle schoolers, "the gender unicorn," and the teacher pushing this agenda on these young kids who demands to be called "Mx." instead of Mr.

Middle school children already have the hormones to be considered sexual. It's legal in some states for kids that age to get married.

While I think the teacher shouldn't have passed those things out, and it's irrelevant to her/his job, as well as controversial, it's not something that is "against" children.

I think just the opposite. It presents a great opportunity to address this issue with the kids, since they'll run across this everywhere. On tv, in schools, with talk among friends, on the internet, and certainly when they enter the work force.

The teacher shouldn't have done that and should stick to his job of teaching his subject(s) he was hired for. But it's not a reason to pull a kid from public school, IMO.

Hey! Teaching is teaching! Get with the program!
Well, if they are an intersex person, then "they" might work!

It would be as inappropriate for a teacher to pass out handouts on guns or gun safety, too, unless he was hired to teach a course in that.

Wow.

I wonder how some of you reacted when Ms. joined Mrs. and Miss in common usage in the early 70s.

Maybe the teacher is a Brit ? That title (Mx) was formally accepted in the UK in 2017.

Transgenderism exists, so I have no objection in theory to it being taught.

The problem is that everyone will want everything to be on that list. Nobody will realistically be able to keep up. I’m trans-and-other-friendly, and frankly if you ask me politely to call you a Pandakin, I’ll happily do it. But let’s be honest and also acknowledge the labeling is out of control.

I've seen this: LGBTQIA and even some longer ones.
