    Reason 16,387 to Home School The Indoctorination of Our Children 

    Gee is it really any wonder that parents are very concerned about the education our children are receiving and many have chosen to take things into their own hands?

    This is from a school in Jacksonville, Florida.  A “teacher” had the students write this sentance after a lecture about the constitution.

    rights for safety

    This comes Wisconsin: A crossward puzzle that says conservative beliefs limits personal freedoms. After all it is conservatives that want to ban certain sized sodas, ban salt, and trans fats.

    crossward puzzle

    From Texas, for 6th graderas:

    Notice socialist/communist nations use symbolism on their flags representing various aspects of their economic system. Imagine a new socialist nation is creating a flag and you have been put in charge of creating a flag. Use symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism on your flag. What kind of symbolism/colors would you use?

      Yes. Conservatives need to wake up and start pulling their kids out if the public school system. Even if both parents are working, there are ways to still homeschool your kids.

    And They Say Conservatives are Anti-Science 

    I have heard many times that conservatives are anti-science.  This is an accusation thrown around mainly in the concept of global warming or climate change, whatever it is being called today.  We are told that the science is “settled”.  Well, that really isn’t true.  There are scientists who say that it isn’t man-made.  So I would say that it isn’t settled.  I don’t automatically dismiss the idea of it, but I think that before we spend boatloads of money we should be sure.  

    I have also been told that homosexuality is a genetic thing.  Sorry, but there is no proof that it is.  It may very well be, but at this point there is no “gay” gene.  From what I have read, the scientific community seems to believe that there are a variety of factors that goes into homosexuality.  

    When all of the work being done to understand causes is put together, the question about what causes homosexuality seems best answered as follows. 

    First, science does not have a firm answer that everyone in the field of science let alone everyone else can agree on. The origins of homosexuality are still not clearly understood by scientists.
    Most researchers agree that homosexuality is multi-causal and complex; many factors contribute to the development of same-sex attraction. Most researchers, including Dr. Dean Hamer, the “gay gene” researcher who is himself a gay man, agree that homosexuality is due to a combination of social, biological, and psychological factors. Dr. Hamer has said, “Genes are hardware…the data of life’s experiences are processed through the sexual software into the circuits of identity. I suspect the sexual software is a mixture of both genes and environment, in much the same way the software of a computer is a mixture of what’s installed at the factory and what’s added by the user (P. Copeland and D. Hammer (1994) The Science of Desire. New York: Simon and Schuster.)”

     So there seems to be choice involved in it.  So I would like to know why teachers in California have decided that they are going to liberate children of gender.  Liberate you from your gender?  Gender isn’t a choice.  It is biological.  This is abusive to young children. They are trying to teach them that biology doesn’t matter.  The goal according to the union is that children should feel liberated from stereotypes.  So do we dress our little boys in skirts to send them to school?  Where exactly is this going to lead?  This is the slippery slope of liberalism.  We take young children who are in the process of figuring out who they are and where they belong in the world, and we confuse them more than they already are.  We get them questioning who they are and the values that they are being taught at home by their parents, who by the way should be teaching those values.  

    Gender is never choice.  It is biological.  There are hormones that are different between males and females, our body parts are different, we have different functions when it comes to reproduction.  Teaching children that is basic science.  Gender is not in your head.  It isn’t a state of mind.  You have a penis or you don’t.  Even if you decide to have surgery to “change” your gender, it cannot be done without changing your hormones.  Which says that it is biological.  It further proves that it is science.  

    We are blurring the lines between males and females and what is the end game here?  It wasn’t all that long ago that homosexuality was considered a mental illness.  That all changed when people started to “normalize” it.  While some may think that I am going a bridge too far with this comparison but I truly believe this is just another step in trying to normalize pedophilia the same way that they normalized homosexuality.  

    If you are the parent of young children in the public school system in California you need to stand up to this nonsense.  The school system has no right to “liberate” your child of their God-given gender.  This is just one more way that the far left is interfering with the parent child relationship and pushing an agenda that is detrimental to the core family unit in this country.  It must be stopped.  

    The only real cure to this is to get a movement going to get more conservatives involved in the school systems, the unions, and the school boards.  We should be teaching our children how to think critically, not that their gender is a state of mind.

      One should be careful about using the mere fact of disagreement as a basis for decrying something as not settled. Scientists, even experts in their field, can be wrong about things. The mere existence of controversy doesn’t mean that the disagreement is valid. Of course, the existence of consensus doesn’t make an opinion valid either. Whilst what the majority of experts think is a useful tool when one doesn’t have the time to fully analyse a subject, at the end of the day the arguments should be taken on merit and not the number of people behind them.

      And one should be careful about concluding homosexuality is a choice based on the fact it isn’t genetic. It isn’t a dichotomy, where a behaviour is one or the other. The brain is perfectly capable of forging connections, resulting in behaviours, based upon non-genetic stimulus without the consent of the owner. Take favourite food as an analogy. The desire to eat stems from a hunger, which has a genetic basis. How one likes to satiate this might be influenced by social factors – a country which has a taboo against pork won’t contain many bacon lovers. There might also be psychological factors; the aforementioned brain connections being forged due to experiences etc. Thus liking bacon isn’t a genetic trait, yet at no point did an individual choose to like bacon.

      Gender is biological and trying to alter that is ultimately folly. However, one must be careful that when one teaches or acts upon such biological differences one is acting upon true differences and not mere stereotypes. Treating girls differently because of their biology is all well and good, teaching them to become secretaries…not so much. Avoiding that is, I think, what California’s aim was whilst it is laudable they seem to have taken it to an degree.
