Is This a Case of PC Gone Wild or a Promotion of the Homosexual Agenda to School Children?
October 8, 2014 By Jennifer Burke
As students enter their classrooms each morning, they are typically greeted by their teachers. As the teacher begins instruction, he or she very often, especially at the elementary level, addresses the class saying, “Good morning boys and girls.”
Those words, however, have now been deemed to be non-inclusive by Garden Oaks Montessori School in Houston, Texas. School administrators say the words ‘boys and girls’ don’t “convey a sense of inclusive or togetherness.” Therefore, teachers are no longer allowed to use them. Instead, they must say, “Good morning, class” or “Good morning, everyone.”
The school is participating in a campaign called “Welcoming Schools” through the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), which works works towards the legalization of same-sex marriage. Beyond that, the group, which calls itself a civil rights organization, pushes for comprehensive sex education for children of all ages.
“Diversity is a good thing. We all benefit from the unique characteristics that we all have,” says school Principal Lindsey Pollack. She added that the school seeks to “build a culture of inclusivity and understanding and a mindset of being welcoming to everyone.”
According to EAGNews, HRC uses the National School Climate Survey as the basis for their work. The National School Climate Survey happens to have been founded and is lead by Obama’s former assistant deputy secretary for safe and drug free schools, Kevin Jennings.
Jennings has admitted in the past that his objective isn’t really about safety of anyone. Instead, it is to promote homosexuality. He is the author of a book entitled Queering of Elementary Education: Advancing the Dialogue about Sexualities and Schooling.
A group that Jennings founded in 1990 and ran until 2008, the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network, was under fire in the past for the graphic sexual content of books it recommended to students. In one book, a 13-year old boy spoke about tolerating near rape experiences from older men, but that he ultimately enjoyed it. Jennings’ group also held a seminar in 2000 during which they “graphically described unconventional sexual techniques” to students.
