Gender Identity Course for 1st and 2nd Graders

A New Jersey State Curriculum Model provided to parents in the Westfield School District and released by State Senator Holly Schepisi (R-39) suggests that students should start learning about identity gender from the first or second year.

Transgender activists believe that gender identity is different from biological sex and that individuals can change sex. Although this idea is increasingly tolerated by adults, including in Supreme Court decisions, many Americans believe it should not be introduced to young children, for whom discussions of sex, gender and sexuality are inappropriate.

As Breitbart News reported earlier this week, Senator Schepisi released the educational materials, as reported:

“Although I voted against legislation making some sex education classes compulsory for even the youngest children, I took a measured approach and waited to comment further until I saw what was proposed,” Senator Holly Schepisi said in a post on the site. Save Jersey website. “Today I went through all of the Model School teaching materials and I really think New Jersey has lost its mind.”

“While some of the lessons I agree with, many are completely overdone with scathing details for young children and some go so far as to unnecessarily sexualize children,” Schepisi said. “For me, the most outrageous part is that teachers are responsible for promoting an Amaze website and its YouTube channel to children as young as 9 years old to get extra information about sex education. “

“I encourage all parents to take a look and decide if this is something they feel is appropriate for children of this age,” she said.

Schepisi posted the documents on Dropbox for the public to view.

While some materials may be considered broadly acceptable – such as telling kindergartners that it is okay for some children to have two mothers or two fathers – others touch on more sensitive topics.

In one set of materials for Grade 1, students are to learn to ‘define gender, gender identity and gender role stereotypes’. In another, for second graders, students should learn that “there are certain body parts that most girls have and some that most boys have. Being a boy or a girl doesn’t necessarily mean you have these parts, but for most people, that’s how their body is.

Additionally, Schepisi pointed to material for fifth graders, which includes a link to a website called Amaze. The Amaze YouTube channel includes a separate video (not linked in docs) promoting pornography:

Fox News reported, “A spokesperson for Westfield Public Schools told Fox News Digital that the instructional materials were not planned by the school district. The school principal told Fox News Digital that the material presented to parents at the February school board meeting was a “sample resource list” aligned with state policy. The district also said the standards suggested by the state were not mandatory.

The Biden administration opposes efforts to restrict teaching about gender and sexuality to younger children, such as the new Parental Rights in Education Act signed into law by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, which prohibits this type of material from kindergarten to third grade.

Earlier this week, when Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary Jen Psaki if the Biden administration thought children in kindergarten through ninth grade should receive “in-class instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity,” she replied, “Do you have any examples of schools in Florida that teach preschool sex ed? »

PSAKI argued that the law was simply meant to stigmatize transgender “youth” and did not address a real issue.
