New Jersey is going in the opposite direction from Florida’s Parental Rights bill, with the state mandating that second-graders be brainwashed about gender identity starting this fall.
According to Fox News, one of the lesson plans being circulated teach children that…
“Gender identity is that feeling of knowing your gender. You might feel like you are a boy, you might feel like you are a girl. And you might not feel like you’re a boy or a girl, but you’re a little bit of both. No matter how you feel, you’re perfectly normal!”
These lessons are being required by the state.
New Jersey public school second graders will be getting a lesson in gender identity this fall under state sex education guidelines that will take effect in September.
According to the standards, New Jersey students should, by the end of second grade, understand the “core ideas” that all “individuals should feel welcome and included regardless of their gender, gender expression or sexual orientation.”
Additionally, the standards listed “performance expectations” for second graders, which includes discussing “the range of ways people express their gender and how gender role stereotypes may limit behavior.”
These teaching standards were established back in 2020 are are only going into effect now:
Educators in the Garden State are preparing to carry out the teaching standards, which were established in 2020 but not required to be enacted until Sept. 2022.
I find this pretty incredible given all the angst and criticism from the left about Florida’s parental rights law. The entire reason Florida created their parental rights law was to prevent what is happening in New Jersey from happening in Florida.
But the critics kept claiming that Florida’s new law was in search of a problem that didn’t exist, that there was no curriculum that taught gender identity and sexual orientation. Of course they were referring to Florida, but now we see that this toxic brainwashing plan in New Jersey has been in the works since 2020. Meaning, it was only a matter of time before it made its way to Florida. Thank God for DeSantis and Republican legislators who knew this and refused to bow to the mob, passing the law and protecting both parents and children.
One school district in New Jersey is even considering teaching some of this to first-graders:
One school district in the state distributed sample lesson plans indicating first graders could be taught they can have “boy parts” but “feel like” a girl.
Absolutely abominable. This is exactly what happens when Democrats are in control of an entire state. These educators are going to ruin the lives of so many children by teaching them this garbage. I can only hope parents in New Jersey make a lot of noise and take back their state from these leftists.
