Q: 'Wumao of the West', straight from Toronto's classrooms?

http://www.macleans.ca/news/canada/why-are-schools-brainwashing-our-chil...

 

'Last month, Toronto parents were incensed to learn that the Toronto District School Board web page promoting health education included a link to an organization that suggested kids explore their sexuality by experimenting with sex toys and vegetables. The board has since removed the link. Sometimes the social-justice push can just come off as old-fashioned political correctness: the Durham Board of Education in Ontario came under fire for discouraging the terms “wife” and “husband” in class in favour of the gender-neutral “spouse,” and the words “boyfriend” and “girlfriend” in favour of “partner.” And in the name of inclusiveness, some school boards include Wiccan holidays in their school calendars. But because there are no clear guidelines, things can also really go awry. In March, a U.K. school banned “best friends” because that made other kids feel left out. In May, a six-year-old boy in Denver was suspended for singing the pop anthem I’m Sexy and I Know It to a female classmate, violating the school’s sexual-harassment policy.'

 

Wow, that's what they are teaching those 10 years od kids in the classroom these days? So this is where those fanatical SJ warriors come from, the classroom? Pretty soon you can give out bachelor of social science degrees to grade school kids who really, really can 'think independently' !!!

I'm sure happy I went to school 50 years ago. Back then it was about team sports and learning how to make money cutting grass or shoveling snow. I didn't have to decide what sex I wanted to be. Nor did I have to decide if other religions were good or bad. Kids these days are doing way to much homework (in Canada). I have several nieces and nephews and grandkids who don't even have to go to PE class because some teacher thought it wasn't necessary. Kids these days aren't given the chance to be kids anymore. What we have now is a generation of obese kids who think like we did when we were kids. The big difference is politics and political correctness at a ripe age of 9 years old.

Well, if that's the way the civilised world is heading it pretty much confirms what I thought.

 

I'm not suited for society anymore. I should probably go live in a cave in the bush somewhere, grow a long beard and scream at helicopters and planes when they fly over.

Ok - now for the unpopular opinion - from someone who believes everyone deserves to be treated equally (until they've proven they don't deserve it) - and that includes the right to having their lifestyle seen as 'normal' or 'acceptable' (rather than just 'tolerated'....)

 

In trying to find something similar, I found... http://news.nationalpost.com/toronto/toronto-teacher-who-posted-graphic-safe-sex-posters-meant-for-gay-bars-back-in-the-classroom

 

Note the LAST PARAGRAPH.... "Mr. Mackey said parent input led to the posters in the classroom. A survey sent home at the beginning of the school year asked parents to list “hot topics” they hoped would be covered by their child’s education. Mr. Mackey said “high-risk behaviour,” like sex and drug use, was among the most popular responses."

 

(yeah, Mr Mackey.... Tongue)

 

Funnily enough - both conservatives (like the Christian Right) AND the SJW's were against this! However, I'm glad that the school board (and the parents) have the sense to bring up such topics... kids aren't stupid! They know stuff - as much as people try to suppress it!

 

As for the rest of your post... so what? AS for 'spouse' and 'partner' - I see no problem with that - as long as 'husband/wife' or 'boyfriend/girlfriend' aren't being 'banned' or actively discouraged.

 

The song... it's probably crap, so should be banned everywhere! But considering some of the other crap that poses as 'music' today, and the 'lyrics' there in... one area where censors should really step in!!!!
