100 Days of Change

100 Days of the Obama Presidency

It is amazing what the power of one can do.  One man, one set of choices—and nearly unbelievable repercussions.

Gender Agenda Moves Forward

A young man in a northern CA district is suing because a girl was in his locker room while he changed. Whose harassing whom? The following excerpt is from a website for the San Francisco School District.

How are schools expected to implement the SFUSD Board Policy which Prohibits Gender-Based Harassment?

* Names/Pronouns
Students shall have the right to be addressed by a name and pronoun corresponding to their gender identity that is exclusively and consistently asserted at school.
* Official Records
The District shall change a student’s official records to reflect a change in legal name or gender upon receipt of documentation that such legal name and/or gender have been changed pursuant to California legal requirements.
* Restroom Accessibility
Students shall have access to the restroom that corresponds to their gender identity exclusively and consistently at school.
* Locker Room Accessibility
Transgender students shall not be forced to use the locker room corresponding to their gender assigned at birth.
* Sports and Gym Class
Transgender students shall not be denied the opportunity to participate in sports and gym.
* Dress Codes
Students shall have the right to dress in accordance with their gender identity that is exclusively and consistently asserted at school, within the constraints of the dress codes adopted at their school site.
* Gender Segregation in Other Areas
As a general rule, in any other circumstances where students are separated by gender in school activities, students shall be permitted to participate in accordance with their gender identity exclusively and consistently asserted at school.

This school policy reads like something eerie out of a sci-fi novel.  I read a quote by Joseph Stalin recently that touched on public education.  It said:

‘Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.’ —Joseph Stalin

Those with an agenda are using our schools to push social change.  It isn’t the time or the place, yet there it is.  We’ve got to be aware that this does happen, and can happen in our local schools.  It’s not just San Francisco anymore.
