• Fairfax County Schools Will Add ‘Gender Fluidity’ To Curriculum

    Farifax County Public Schools in Virginia, one of the largest school systems in the nation, will start teaching kids lessons on sexual fluidity—the idea that there is no such thing as a human gender and that we are all open to “gender fluidity.”

    The school board of Fairfax County voted to include gender identity in the district’s non-discrimination policy last week and will implement the change within their family life curriculum for grades 7 through 12, despite strong opposition by parents.

    The school board  released a new Family Life Education Committee report outlining the new policy on Monday.

    “Students will be provided definitions for sexual orientation terms heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality; and the gender identity term transgender,” the document states. “Emphasis will be placed on an understanding that there is a broader, boundless, and fluid spectrum of sexuality that is developed throughout a lifetime”

    The board will formally introduce the changes on May 21.

    School Board spokesman John Torre said the proposed curriculum has nothing to do the school board’s recent vote to allow transgender students and employees to use the bathrooms and locker rooms of their choice.

    The board voted 10-1 to adopt the policy.  Elizabeth Schultz, the only board member to vote against the policy amendment, claims the district is suddenly adopting the policy because of state and federal pressure.

    The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights has been telling schools around the nation that transgender students are protected under Title IX, which outlaws gender discrimination in schools and threatened to withhold millions of dollars’ worth of funding from schools that don’t cooperate, Schulz said.

    “If we don’t implement policy according to the federal government’s whim, they are going to come and take our Title IX money, our students with disabilities money, our free and reduced lunch money,” she said.

    Schulz claims the main culprit at the state level is Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring.

    “He wrote a legal opinion at the beginning of March that flew in the face of eight previous attorney general opinions, regarding whether local governments and schools could extend protected class status for sexual orientation or gender identity,” she said. “All of the sudden one board member puts this on our agenda within hours of Herring’s opinion.”

    Critics argue the school’s new anti-discrimination policy is more like unadulterated sex indoctrination.

    “The larger picture is this is really an attack on nature itself – the created order,” said Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council. “It’s only going to create more confusion in the minds of young people who don’t need any further confusion about sexual identity.”

    The school district is not yet able to provide the textbooks and scientific data they will be using to instruct the children that there are dozens and dozens of possible genders.

    Sprigg says the school board can’t produce a textbook about fluidity because “It’s an ideological concept, it’s not a scientific one.”
