It was part of a week of school spirit festivities in Milwaukee that included theme days such as Crazy Hair Day and events were routine for students and parents until the schedule hit “Gender-Bender” Day.
Then parents reacted.
“I do not want to send my son to school dressed like a girl,” one parent told Fox 6 News, which reported on the dispute.
The fight focused on the idea that school officials should not be telling students of grade school age to dress like the opposite sex.
The report from Fox said the school, when confronted by concerns about a “gender-bender” day, did decide to alter the name to “Switch it up.”
But the focus remained the same, said critics.
One mother who held her son home from school that day suggested it created an impossible situation for students – either to go along and dress up as the opposite sex, or to refuse to participate and be pointed out as someone who did not do anything...........................
Meanwile, back in the Peoples' Republik of Kal-ee-Fornication:
There is a long history of introducing and teaching highly charged sexual material to children in America’s public schools. Probably the biggest promoter of such concerns is the public school industry in California.
In fact, California parents were urged to keep their children home from school on May 22, the state’s official day for conducting “exercises” to honor the notorious homosexual activist and reported pedophile Harvey Milk.
In 2009, then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law a day for schools to commemorate the San Francisco activist, who was California’s first openly homosexual man to be elected to public office. Earlier that year, President Obama posthumously awarded Milk the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
But SaveCalifornia.com, a non-profit pro-family organization founded by Randy Thomasson, warns Milk is no “role model” for schoolchildren.
Citing a biography of Milk by homosexual San Francisco Chronicle writer Randy Shilts, which served as the basis of a film about the activist, SaveCalifornia.com points out Milk “repeatedly engaged in adult-child sex [and] advocated for multiple homosexual relationships at the same time.”
In fact, the book describes Milk’s romantic relationship with 16-year-old Jack Galen McKinley (when Milk was 33) and explains the activist “always had a penchant for young waifs with substance abuse problems.”
SaveCalifornia.com consequently urged fathers and mothers to demand that teachers, principals and school board members refuse to honor Milk or else they’ll keep their children home that day or exit the government schools entirely.
“Parents who hear about ‘Harvey Milk Gay Day’ are disgusted that this teen predator and sexual anarchist is now the new role model for their children, and schools aren’t even notifying them that this happening,” Thomasson said in a statement. “Parents must keep their children home from public school on May 22 to guard their kids from the bad influence of ‘Milk Day.’”
Yet SaveCalifornia.com warns “Harvey Milk Day” is only one example of how “progressive” politicians are advancing a sexual agenda in California schools.
Among other Democrat-led initiatives was the recent strategy that requires schools to let boys play on girls’ athletic teams and utilize the ladies’ locker room if they gender identify as girls – or vice-versa for girls identifying as boys.
The bill’s author, openly homosexual San Francisco Democrat Tom Ammiano, has been an activist for lesbian, “gay,” bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, issues for decades and reportedly became in 1975 the first San Francisco public school teacher to make his homosexuality public. Ammiano later co-founded an LGBT organization with Milk.
Ammiano told the Los Angeles Times some parents may be uncomfortable with their children sharing bathrooms with students of a different sex, but he said, “It’s also important to protect our children from prejudice.”
By a vote of 46-25, carried without any affirmative votes from Republican lawmakers, the California Assembly passed the bill, AB 1266, which amends Section 221.5 of the state’s Education Code as follows: “A pupil shall be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.”
The bill would affect not only interscholastic sports, but also sex-segregated physical education classes.
Others cited by SaveCalifornia.com as being on a radical sex agenda include:
In addition, majority Democrats in the California legislature have turned back plans like Assembly Bill 1861 that would have made it a felony if any teacher or employee of a public or private school “engages in a sexual relationship or inappropriate communications with a pupil.”
If you don't think this is all part of amuch larger, organized effort, then you're not paying attention.....
