“Dispelling Myths” About Male/Female Gender, New Goal for CA Kindergarten Health Lessons

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The California Department of Education is asking parents to review its proposed K-12 health curriculum framework, which seeks to radically transform the way public school students think about gender and sexuality. This written set of goals and objectives, revamped in light of the state’s new LGBT affirming sex education law (the Healthy Youth Act), will guide curriculum development over the next decade. Yet children of Christian and other conservative minded parents will find many of the new health lessons in conflict with the values taught at home. (Parents have until Friday, January 11 to submit their comments. See below for details)

“Dispelling myths about gender expectations in kindergarten can lay the groundwork for acceptance, inclusiveness, and an anti-bullying environment in schools,” the proposed framework states. “Gender non-conformity and physical characteristics are often at the root of many forms of bullying.”

Chapter 3: Transitional Kindergarten Through Grade Three

So what are these myths about gender that even kindergarteners must unlearn? Not just the color, toy, and activity preferences the two sexes tend to be attracted to, but “stereotypes” that involve dress and body parts. The framework encourages teachers to read students books like, “My Princess Boy,” about a boy who likes pink dresses and to invite adults, who identify as transgender, to the class as guest speakers.

When it comes to health lessons about body organs, the framework tells teachers to dispel the myth that male and female reproductive organs are different.

The framework states:

When providing instruction on sexual and reproductive organs, teachers can introduce the concept that gender does not always match the sexual and reproductive organs described. For example, teachers may share, “In the classroom, we may use the term ‘female reproductive organs’ but some people who identify as male have these organs. The actual anatomical name for organs is utilized.

Chapter 3: Transitional Kindergarten Through Grade Three

While these new gender lessons start in kindergarten, they are reinforced in every grade. The entire proposed K-12 health curriculum framework, you can read here, consists of nine chapters with several appendixes. It includes 842 mentions of the words “sex,” “sexual,” and “sexuality; 239 mention of “gender,” with “67” in the 4th -6th grad framework alone; and 2 mentions of “abstinence” in the entire 1,000-page health framework.

Although Christian parents would find many objections within this framework, listed below are some of the most objectionable sections.

  • The framework recommends a K-3 book on gender identity titled, “Who Are You?”, which introduces kids to the gender spectrum. According to the lesson plan for the book, kids get to work the three layers of “The Gender Wheel” and learn how “grown-ups look at a baby’s body when they are born and make a guess. This is the sex assigned at birth: male or female. (Sometimes people get this confused with gender. But gender is much more than the body you were born with.) ” Chapter 3: Transitional Kindergarten Through Grade Three
  • The framework introduces high school kids to the dangers of “spiritual abuse” listed among other types of abuse (emotional, sexual, physical) teens must avoid. Examples of religious abuse include, “Forcing others to adhere to rigid gender roles… . Not allowing a partner to do things they enjoy.” Chapter 6: Grades Nine Through Twelve
  • The framework tells middle school teachers to use gender neutral language for romantic relationships and to eliminate words that imply teens have only one sex partner at a time. “In order to be inclusive: the term “partner” should be used in place of or in addition to “boyfriend/girlfriend” or “husband/wife” to avoid assumptions about gender and sexual orientation. Some students may be non-monogamous and the term “partner(s)” may also be used to be more inclusive. Chapter 5: Grades Seven and Eight
  • The framework introduces high school students to sexual terms such as polysexual, pansexual, and asexual. Chapter 6: Grades Nine Through Twelve
  • The framework encouraged middle school teachers to invite abortion providers as class speakers. “Guest speakers from your local public health department sexual health clinic, or local nonprofit organizations, such as Planned Parenthood, may have well-informed sexual health educators and age-appropriate materials to support comprehensive sexual health education.” Chapter 5: Grades Seven and Eight

  1. This curriculum is developmentally inappropriate for young children therefore it is emotionally abusive in that it may put child in a place that is contrary to their family’s values.

  2. This change to K-12 curriculum is inappropriate for this age children. Curriculum should be basic education of writing, reading and arithmetic and leave the rest to their family’s beliefs and values.

  3. This is not an issue to be addressed at this level. Parents should have the option to opt out as they do for sex education.in later grades. Teaching people to love each other and be kind to each other even if they are different than you or have a different opinion than you would be more valuable. Diversity is more than gender preference, it is color, race, religion, political views, and sexual preference. It would be better to teach and insist upon kindness.

  6. This is horrible. It is just more brainwashing of our children. 5 year olds do not need to know about this crap. Let them be kids and know the truth. If you have a penis you are a boy. If you have a vagina you are a girl! Later in life you may decide you want to be the opposite and that is ok..

  7. I totally disagree with this! School is meant to teach reading, writing, math, language, history and the arts. Leave the sex education to the family. God made male and female. I don’t want my grandchildren being taught anything differently and I know their parents feel the same. This is pure brainwashing!

  9. I call this propaganda or indoctrination of innocents minds and the public school has no business interjecting their beliefs on any child!!! Kindergarteners only need to know about kindness, how to get along and work with each other and reading, writing and arithmetic and that’s it!!

  10. Sex instruction is not for elementary school students. Children should be allowed to grow up without dealing with adult issues. Values should be addressed in the home. This will drive even more children from public schools and into Home Study programs that are not always best for children. Home schooling is done well by many parents — but not all. Parents should not feel forced to make this decision, but elementary sex”education” may do just that

  11. This age group does not know what all of this is all about. By the time they understand what it is, they do not remember it was even mentioned. It is a way to manipulate children, to believe in something they may never believe in. Train a child the way it should go ….. this is not the way I want any of my children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and so on to be trained. Only what I believe or the parents of my next generations are in authority to train believes. This becomes more and more that the government tells parents what the belief in households supposed to believe. Too much involvement of the Government and freedom of speech dictated.

  13. Thanks for making me homeschool my kiddos. You just helped me make that decision. I promise this won’t help your schools getting funded if they see less and less kids showing up to school.

I’m not going to let you take away the right to preserve my babies innocence, away from me as a Mom and as a Parent.

  14. This is why I fear for the moral fiber of our country in years to come. It is also why my wife and I ( a male/female relationship in all respects! ) support our children who either home-school or send our grandchildren to private schools not under the thumb of the California Dept. of Education.

  15. These notions of gender are a theory and not science. They destroy innocence and are not age appropriate. For the sake of the rare one whose parents have not helped recognize his gender identity, you pollute the innocence of the many. The whole idea of pushing a political agenda in a public school is totally inappropriate. Schools should have codes of conduct for bullying issues but they are not arbiters of moral codes or indoctrination camps and shouldn’t be allowed to do this. Teach the children to read, write, spell, and stay out of their heads and pants.

  16. The sick twisted parents that are forcing their children to believe they are the opposite gender, need to be see the inside of prison walls for child abuse. Now the CA Department of UnEducation is going to force feed the children the same abuse and call it good for the child? Shame on you supposed adults trying to distort children.

    • Who is distorting? Negligence is not educating and teaching tools. Read the framework and might find that “abstinence is the most effective prevention” for risky behaviors is mentioned over and over.

    “The state ranked 41st in conditions that help children succeed, 39th in school finance, and 30th in achievement.” -The Mercury News

    California is 1.3 trillion dollars in debt wtih no end in sight, yet the biggest push that state legislaters and the LBGTQ community is obsessed with is behavorial gender conditioning for children in K-12. It is no surprise that such radical leftist doctrines for gender identitiy is being proposed. Education is no longer about education in the state if CA; it is about proselytizing children to brainwash them into thinking of themselves as neutral human beings with no gender. No gender fits all human beings on the planet. Biological facts mean nothing. Menstrual cycles mean nothing. Men have reproductive organs. Women (young girls) can have penises. There are truly no differences between men and women: there are no gender differences.

    Ultimately, the Leftist movement in CA caters heavily to the LBGTQ commumities because they have tremendous backing, and they have control of the state legislature (both LBGTQ persons and their supporters). The next step will be to infiltrate all aspects of society to declassify gender as male and female (police suspects, medical doctor patients, etc.) The infiltration is endless.

    Parents, you must fight for the rights of your children because they cannot fight for themselves. They are the most vulnetable and susceptible group of our society (to brainwash) and the Left knows this completely. Why do you think the LBGTQ wants to start in kindergarten?

    Wake up parents or all of your sons and daughters will be brainwashed into believing that “no gender” constitutes a world, a society of androgenous beings whose genitalia is adaptable and useless through a basic means of “thinking that they are so.”

  18. This is totally inappropriate for children, especially in Kindergarten. This is indoctrination disguised as “anti-bullying” and “tolerance”. We need to pray for our schools, and those in government (local and state) who oversee the schools. This kind of indoctrination cannot be allowed.

  20. As I have stated before; the homosexual activists want to indoctrinate our children as young as possible into the homosexual life style. This will only get worst with the new governor.

    But thank God that Trump has selected conservative Christian Judges to the Supreme Court where some of these issues will end up at. That is why Trump is being hammered by the left and liberal democrats and homosexual activists. This is where we can make a difference by supporting President Trump and encouraging him to select more conservative judges.

    We can file lawsuits protesting this attack on our children. During these times we need to seek God’s help, support our President, and do everything to protect our kids. It is a spiritual warfare that we are in.

  23. Students should be taught that they should respect others with different views of themselves and their relationships with others, but to develop curricula to steer someone’s beliefs in a certain direction is inappropriate. The job of the educator is to teach reading, writing and math, not to promote or degrade any social or cultural viewpoint.

Somehow, all of us made our own decisions on being one sex or the other without this agenda being promoted in our many years in public education. As a teacher I do not feel this is necessary. Look at our scores in language arts,and math. They are not where they should be. Concentrate on basics, and teach values and personal responsibility .

If another wants to be liberal about it, then that’s their right as well.

  44. This is some adults pushing sickening outright LIES upon young innocent precious children. This is mass generational brainwashing in public schooling. Brainwashing based on lies. Since the beginning of time, today, and til the end of time your bodily parts you are born with determines if you are a boy or girl. Those that wish to brainwash and emotionally abuse snd confuse children in this regards have NO place working with children or in any affiliatation to working with children. It is time to BAN ALL sexual teaching in all schools under the age of 18.. No sexual education in ANY regards. No talking about any gender besides a boy or girl since that is all that truly exists, NO talking by teachers in school to children about sex, sex toys, STDs, abortion, sex partners….NOTHING. There is no need for any adult besides a childs own parents-family to discuss their sexual beliefs with their own children at age appropriate times.
    Sexual Education classes can always be taught in a public setting that parents may opt to have their children go to. But there is zero need for any of it to be taught in any public school setting. Teaching how it is not OK for anyone to touch you under your clothes and protecting chikdren from sexual harm is OK to teach but that is it. Stop brainwashing children with lies and stop sharing sexual teachings at inappropriate age levels . Ban it from being taught at schools all together, since some adult have sexually perverted minds.

  59. There’s a well-known proverb that reads, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” There’s also a beloved fairy tale called “The Emperor’s New Clothes”. In the tale, a couple swindlers convince the king that his new wardrobe is of made of such fine material that only the wisest of his subjects can see him. The emperor announces his new wardrobe to his subjects, and then leads a parade to show off his new threads Of course, everyone pretends to admire the swindler’s work until a child shout that the emperor has no clothes.
    Needless to say, the proverb accurately illustrates how California’s foolhardy, morally bankrupt Department of Education is following a path that seems right to them, but its end is the way to death. The children they believe they are protecting are being psychologically and physically harmed and abused by their social engineering project, and I predict many will take their own lives or perhaps the lives of their misguided parents.
    We can liken the DOE employees to the swindlers who deceived the emperor. The new K-12 health curriculum framework is meant to deliberately deceive the citizens of California. I pray that not all of us are as foolish as the emperor and that we resist the tragic path the DOE is taking.
    The framework’s recommendation to invite transgenders to speak to five-year olds is an abomination. It tells teachers to dispel the “myth” that male and female reproductive organs are different. They characterize the spiritual foundation upon which our nation was founded as “spiritual abuse” for forcing others to adhere to rigid gender roles. This is lunacy. Our children must be taught the truth in the home and courageous teachers and administrators who have not been misled by such nonsense must continue to teach the truth in our public schools.

  68. Born and raised in California. I have coached young people for many years. We retired to Georgia with our sons and their families. We would not be considered religious. We might attend church just a few times a year. We have 7 grand children enrolled in some of the best free public schools as far as real education goes. This is one of the reasons we left California, for the benefit of our grandchildren. I have worked with members in the LGBT community, and have no problem with whatever identity they align with. That is their decision, but to force impressionable young people to learn this kind of thing at such a young age is wrong. Their plate is full enough in learning to deal with social issues at a young age, as a coach and grandfather, I know this all too well. Gender identity are things that need to be discussed in the home and family environment at the appropriate age, not dictated to by the “State”. The appropriate age depends upon the child as an individual, that may be as a child gets older for some and earlier for others. Afterall, we ARE individuals, develop at different rates, and have differing needs, correct? Stop brainwashing children and teach them the basics. Stop dictating family responsibility. Let their families teach them how to love, live and let live.
