    Public schools in Washington state and Oregon are teaching topics
    related to gender identity to children as young as 5.

    The Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI),
    which oversees K-12 education in the state, defines "gender" as "a
    social construct based on emotional, behavioral and cultural
    characteristics attached to a person’s assigned biological sex." The
    OSPI set health education standards for all public schools in 2016,
    requiring children in kindergarten and first grade to learn that "there
    are many ways to express gender," while children in second and third
    grade are taught that "there is a range of gender roles and expression."

    Teaching this year after year, and going into more detail each year is
    nothing but pure brainwashing.

    It's liberal idiots trying to force their beliefs on impressionable
    children.

    How would you like it Josh, if the state required that children were
    taught that people who think they are the wrong gender, have mental
    problems?

    The state should keep out of sex education and leave it to the parents.

    This is an old saw that has long since been rejected (e.g., we learned
    about VD in 8th grade). Given there is sex education, schools have to
    take a stand, one way or the other, on gender identity. They choose
    should what the medical profession tells us.

    I am certain you would disagree, but from my evil right wing
    perspective it is clear that an element in your Party is attempting to
    use the education system to indoctrinate children in Left Wing views
    of gender identity -- just another step in what is evolving into a
    scheme of political indoctrination of our school children. Ridiculous?

    Yes. The science of gender identity has nothing to do with politics.

    The Democrat Party is increasingly dependent on identity politics, the
    purpose being to divide us into groups which can be embraced and
    brought into the Democrat fold. CRT and 1619 divide us along racial
    lines, and the sex education initiative identifies and even encourages
    gender differences which can then be drawn into the identity fold. The
    ultimate goal? I doubt there is one at this point, but we can derive
    hints from the contempt of the Left for the founding fathers and their
    vision of democracy.

    Perhaps, but then ...
