First graders in Maine getting lessons on transgenderism

Remember the good old days when school was all about “reading, writing and ‘rithmatic?” Now it’s all about progressive indoctrination and yes, sexuality. Even in FIRST GRADE.

A listener to Sean Hannity’s radio show forwarded an email she received from her seven-year-old son’s teacher at Horace Mitchell Primary School in Kittery Point, Maine that made her jaw drop. And it makes me weep for our nation.

The teacher’s email reads: “Last week our guidance counselor, Dana Richerich, read a book to the class called ‘I am Jazz’. It is a children’s book about a girl that is transgendered. (Born a boy, but identifies as a girl). The book/discussion went really well. (I stayed for the lesson so I would know what the class was covered/discussed).”

According to Hannity.com, “the mother was less than pleased to learn that this book was involved in the class curriculum and says, “I feel like my thoughts, feelings and beliefs were completely ignored….My right as a parent to allow or not allow this discussion with my child was taken from me. It is very upsetting to me that I didn’t have an option at all.”

The book, “I am Jazz” is based on the life of now 14-year-old Jazz Jennings who, although born a boy, claims to have identified as a girl since he was two-years-old.

A blog post by guidance counselor Richerich stresses the importance of LGBT rights and claims, “Some may think primary school students are too young to worry about addressing issues surrounding gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) students. Not so, experts say. It’s never too early to begin teaching children about respecting differences.”

Yes folks, we have come to the point in this nation where transgenderism is just FINE to discuss with seven-year-olds – and even more mind-boggling, that public school time – funded on your tax dollars — should be spent on this subject rather than ensuring children know how to read, write, add and subtract.

“The concerned parent says her son had many questions for her after she asked him about the book. For instance, he asked his mother if he was “transgender” or not and also whether or not he could be “a girl in love with a girl.” The mother says that up until the time the topic was brought up in school, her son had never said anything like that before. “I was taken aback by it,” she said. “Being seven, once you put something in their mind they don’t forget so easily.”

But you must remember, it’s “never too early to begin teaching children” these sorts of things. If you’re a progressive.

never to young to indoctrinate children with Christianity,, huh?
telling little kids who have no critical thinking skills that they are lost…
and need to be found,,, that they are sheep,,, who need to be led,,,
they are broken,, and need to be fixed,,,
that they are unworthy,,, and need to be saved,,,
yea,, that’s the ticket…
teach children about everything,, and raise them good,, and let them form their
own opinions

“birds born in a cage think flying is an illness”


do you really believe the stuff that comes out of your mouth?
birds born in a cage will still be born with instinct.
Instinct to spread their wings and instinct to fly.
Children born into Christian families are not sheltered as you might think.
They are nurtured, as all children should be … and they are also taught right from wrong and yes, they are taught lessons from the Bible.
But if you seriously think that THAT would go against them as a productive person in society?
You don’t know anything.

“telling little kids who have no critical thinking skills that they are lost…”

So you are outright calling us stupid and now you expect a respectful response?

“By training children to accept that which cannot be proven, especially
by an adult, they become accepting of an entirely fabricated world view,
fantasy and myths mixed in with reality…….”

You are free to debate my kids anytime you wish. But if you try to groom them for pedophile sex, I will shoot you dead! >:(

Baloney.
As a young child in Sunday school, we sang such terrible songs as “Jesus Loves Me.” We did not learn about sin and the need for salvation until teenage years, and only when the pastor thought we were ready.

sorry major, your argument is invalid. Parents have every right to teach their children about Jesus. They also have the right whether or not to divulge that there are people out there born with penises who think they are girls and so forth and so on. At my daughter’s middle school, sex ed was going to be taught and a month beforehand, parents received a permission slip. If parents didn’t want their children to sit in on the class, then the children didn’t sit in on the class. This school took it upon themselves to just inform these children at… Read more »

The difference between atheists and Christians is that the latter are aware of their sinful nature and the need to repent. Atheists are entirely unable to see their own shortcomings.

Seriously, Christianity has been under attack in this country for awhile now. More so in the last several years.
With all the civil discontent and youth violence against law enforcement, I would have to question the effectiveness of self-selective morals…

The_Old_Geezer
Guest

Morality was born out of the very earliest tribal associations. There is more than ample support of that in anthropology. Stone tablets predating both Judaism and Christianity written by those of ancient Samaria not only touches upon but laid down what we know as the Ten Commandments. Organized Religions have virtually nothing to do with humans adopting common sense rules by which to live.

“Morality was born out of the very earliest tribal associations.”

Who also engaged in warfare. Opps! You forgot that part, sir genius!

The_Old_Geezer
Guest

Well certainly tribes engaged in warfare. Typically over hunting territory. Not much different than wars among nations over the last 400 years, when populations exceeded existing territories ability to supply food. If not food over other resources. Nothing much has changed over thousands of years except we now define our tribes by national boundaries or belief factions within tribes which have created sub-tribes. We often still seem to embrace nothing more than Caveman mentalities.

Ebenezer
Guest

Of course not. But you need something to define what is good and moral. Aside from the Bible, which is still relevant even if you don’t believe, what is there for guidance of a young person?

majorwiblit
Guest

as a parent,,, you could not figure out what is good and right to teach a child??
with out the help of a bible?
I would teach them the Bill of Rights,, I would teach them about science,, good science,,, and to question everything,,,even you!
and then let them grow,,, and be there if they stumble..

Parents who were raised by the reading of the Bible are often led to read to their children as well. This is a generations long happening. Anyone who was not raised with familiarity of the Bible simply wouldn’t understand why it is so important to BELIEVERS that their child be exposed to such. There are guidelines in the Bible, that’s true. But when it boils down to soup, I believe that God gave us all a soul and that soul and a conscience are one and that listening to one’s conscience is choice.

So parents who don’t want prayer in schools do have a point after all.

In our multicultural civilization, perhaps mandatory school prayer is not a good idea, but the powers that be don’t even want voluntary morning prayer before school. Of course if Muslims demanded prayer, the schools would fall all over themselves to accommodate.

and that’s it,,, they won’t sit down with their child and explain to them

In my home, it would be explained that these beliefs do happen but it is NOT acceptable and against our beliefs as a family. I would not bring up the subject until it was mentioned. Being a parent is guiding your child in the direction I CHOOSE not the school, television, or internet.

I took them from day one. They grew up hearing the Word of God preached and when the time came and they were under conviction, they sought out God and prayed through and He saved their soul.

You either have your children under 24 hour survaliance or they are already aware of many of these things long before you feel they are ready to talk about it. One of the downsides of the Internet and if you are absolutely positive that your child has never discovered this on their own then one of their friends at school probably has. This information is teaching children earlier that is why it is being discussed earlier. One other thing “pure heart” childhood innocence is beautiful precisely because they exist without all of the prejudices that adults gain later in life.

I am extremely saddened by these comments and hope most of you don’t pass these judgmental beliefs on to your own children, God forbid you have any. This book, as told by Jazz herself, is about accepting people who are not like you. It is in no way shoving transgenderism down childrens’ throats. It’s telling children that even if there’s a boy who likes girl things, they should not be looked down upon, and they are not a burden in any way. If a child comes home with questions, it is up to the parents to answer them. Children ask… Read more »

But this is not about boys playing with dolls, or tomboys. It is about a boy living with the delusion that he is a girl. The former usually grow out of it.

“I hope that it will be a big impact on kids who are struggling to find out who they are, or help kids accept their friends and peers who are different.” -Jazz’s words exactly. This is a nonfiction children’s book about acceptance.

Ebenezer

Yatta yatta. Weasel words.
I grew up with a kid who swore he was a girl. Even the guys showed him that he had the same peepee as the rest of us, he held to his guns. By the age of 12, he was being sodomized by grown men, and when he began to bleed from his anus, thought he was pregnant. Eventually he grew out of the girl phase, he lives as a fairly well adjusted homosexual man. (Even goes to church.)

howdisgusting
Guest

That sucks that that happened to him.
Why are you judging absolutely everybody based on one person? There are plenty of people who say think they’re homosexual, but they end up being straight and it was just a phase in their life, yet there are plenty of actual homosexuals out there. Just like there are actual transgender people, like Jazz.

Ebenezer

I have little or no issue with homosexuals. I do have a lot of issues with grown men who prey on confused and vulnerable young boys (and girls) to exploit them.

There is no such thing as transgender. It is a lie. You are either male or female or one of the rare ones who are both.

Transgender people have existed for a long time. It was never as big as it is now, but it was there. It is most definitely not a lie.

Ebenezer

Gender identity.
I don’t like the word gender. It seems odd to me that the proponents of this use a word from the Victorian age, when they would not use the word “sex” in polite company. In its modern iteration, it is used not for modesty’s sake, but to expand the categories from the male/female dichotomy to an almost infinite number. Have you seen the list? Genderqueer my eye!

howdisgusting
Guest

While I do think many of the things people identify with today are kind of ridiculous (ie. catkin, otherkin, dogkin, etc.), I believe transgender is very real. And even though I do think those other things are a bit ridiculous, I’m just going to let people do what they want, and not get mad about it, or teach my children that they’re odd.

Guinivere
Guest

would you consider transgender a mental dysfunction? If it truly is, as people claim, beyond their choice … that they were born that way, then it can only be explained scientifically as a genetic abnormality. Otherwise, there would be a much larger population of transgender people. Or do you believe that it is indeed a choice that they make?

howdisgusting
Guest

Transgender people, like homosexuals, are born that way. It is not a mental dysfunction. However, it is their choice on whether or not they transition.

Guinivere
Guest

Transition.
You mean act on their sexual desires.
I agree.
I have seen people go without having friends of the opposite sex and also never act on their lifestyle with someone of the same sex. They choose to remain alone. They choose to adhere to their beliefs that it is wrong. Free will. Choice.

howdisgusting

I mean get surgery to get a vagina or penis, and add or remove boobs, and take supplements for needed hormones. Some people don’t feel comfortable with the body that they’re in, and we now have the technology and science to help them with that.

Ebenezer

Unfortunately the taxpayer will get stuck with the bill, when some seniors can’t get eyeglasses or dentures! And what they get is not a vagina or penis, but a rather artful mockup. The real tragedy is that these people who are unhappy with their bodies will continue to be unhappy. Poor Jill Monro.

Oh … well of course that’s their choice. Who else can make it for them? I don’t know why they would undo the work of God, but then their very thought of something so unnatural goes against God as well.

But God made them didn’t he. So the options are…
1. God messed up
2. God did it as a challenge which seeing as he is all knowing he would know they could not overcome.
Or
3. God was fine making them that way because he knows there is nothing wrong with it.
Do we have other options?

God doesn’t make mistakes.
If a person is born with a penis, that person is a male.

So accepting people who are different from yourself is trash now? The school is not pushing anything onto the children. They read a children’s book, partly written by a child, to children. Nothing to do with the system, or shoving beliefs in childrens’ faces. The book is about how children should accept their friends and peers even if they’re different.

Znoopyz

So a 7 year old shouldn’t be tought lessons about accepting others especially those who are different? Instead you would be perfectly ok with a parent pushing blind disgust for an entire group to their IMPRESSIONABLE 7 year old? They way I see it its 2 groups trying to push their beliefs on the next generation the only difference is that one preaches tolerance and the other hate. As for me I’ll root for the side of tolerance so whenever my opinions or life choices are outside of the majority maybe people will show me the same level of acceptance

Parents of ‘transgenders’ are to dang lazy to teach their children the reason they are a boy or a girl and that they will have ‘different’ feelings from time to time but that the world and life is not based on feelings.
