The Fairfax Virginia School District,in Fairfax, Virginia has released a report suggesting that the schools in their jurisdiction should begin making changes to their school curriculum that would include teachings about gender identity that would begin with the school year 2016.
Eighth graders will be taught that individual identity “occurs over a lifetime and includes the component of sexual orientation and gender identity.”
These changes include teaching that gender is not an issue. That anyone can be any gender, they could be both genders, or they could not even have a gender.
The Fairfax Virginia School District serves 186,785 students. This school district is ranked 10th in student enrollment within the United States. Click here for more info.
Does this issue bother anyone but me? I do not understand why this is even a school’s place to be teaching about gender identity.
Currently the new changes suggest that 7th graders will be taught about this transgender ideology, with 10th graders learning more about sexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality, transgendered sexuality, and the like.
Are you comfortable with your children learning about this stuff in school? I see this as one more area where our country’s current stance on biblical principles and morality is under attack.
I am a firm believer that Male and Female were each created to serve their specific purpose and that much of the change in the morality of America’s standards on this issue is due to the recent rise in those accepting homosexuality, transgenderism, and bisexuality, as a normal moral issue. America, sadly, is learning to just accept the sin. Instead we should accept the sinner, but help them to deal with the sin. Not even God wants that in their life.
Here are a few biblical foundations upon which I firmly stand, agree, and share with you today. Adam and Eve can be found in Genesis chapters 1 & 2, and a biblical look into the thoughts of sexual immorality, homosexuality, lesbianism, and such may be found in Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13, as well as in Romans 1:20-32.
I liked the following quote included within the article at The Christian Examiner:
I must confess that I’m a bit old school on sex education. I believe that God created male and female. My reading of the Bible does not indicate there were dozens of other options.” Todd Starnes
