A public elementary school in Bellingham, Washington is teaching second graders not to assume gender and to refer to people as “they” instead, in an effort to foster a “gender inclusive” classroom.
According to a tip made through Young America’s Foundation’s Campus Bias Tipline, a post made by the school’s Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Instagram page bragged about “How We Introduced Pronouns on the First Day of School in a Second Grade Classroom.”
The post included several slides detailing how pronouns were taught during the day. According to one slide, the students began reading a book and the teacher asked students to guess what it could be about.
Previewing a young girl on the front cover, one student said “I think the girl is walking into her new classroom.” The teacher responded by instructing her not to call the girl as such, despite the character obviously being a girl.
She then told her students to call the character by “they” until her gender was revealed. According to the post “we didn’t find any clues about the character’s gender or pronouns so we continued to say ‘they.’”
Bellingham schools are repeat offenders when it comes to leftist bias. Back in May, YAF reported on a first-grade teacher who subjected her class to a book about a transgender child in an effort to “promote inclusion through understanding and compassion.”
Parent complaints fell on deaf ears as Jennifer Mason, president of the Bellingham School Board and “all ages” sex toy shop owner—yes, you heard that right—refused to take any action.
Children in second grade are 8-9 years old. This is how early on leftist ideology is being thrust upon our children. Students are taught to listen to and trust their teachers—it’s no wonder America has a generation of confused young adults claiming that gender is a fluid social construct.
