A teacher taught her young class that there was “no such thing as girls and boys” which led to outrage from some parents.
According to a report highlighted by The Toronto Sun, a classroom full of six-year-olds were told by their teacher that there is “no such thing as girls and boys.”
Parents of the controversial Ottawa school voiced their concern at a teacher who is allegedly shoehorning personal political views into her teaching–to impressionable and confused six-year-olds.
One of the student’s parents have filed a complaint to the Human Rights Tribunal.
The Grade 1 class were made to watch a video on Gender Theory early last year, challenging norms on gender and age-appropriate teaching.
The parents who complained claimed their daughter “kept asking why her identity as a girl ‘wasn’t real,’ wanted to go to a doctor to determine if she was a girl and said she wasn’t sure if she wanted to be a mommy.”
According to The Toronto Sun, the teacher told the class “there is no such thing as girls and boys,” and “girls are not real and boys are not real.”
Post Millennial said the video contained statements like:
- “Some people aren’t boys or girls” and that they don’t “feel like a ‘she’ or a ‘he.’”
- The unnamed teacher apparently kept driving the issue with her class of six-year-olds.
- The teacher reportedly told the kids “there is no such thing as girls and boys,” and “girls are not real and boys are not real.”
The girl’s parents decided to pull the girl from the school to avoid being taught similar themes.
Ontario had flirted with measures to remove trans children from the care of religious parents in the past.
Children referred to trans clinics has risen exponentially in the past few years–especially across the Atlantic in the UK, where referrals for minors suffering from gender dysphoria has led to a two-year backlog, forcing doctors to make Skype consultations with their patients to scythe through demand.
Homeschooling in Canada has been on the rise across the board, with the exception of British Columbia, in the last ten years, indicating a falling level of trust in public schooling or a shift in values among parents amid a progressive, politically-charged, curriculum which often fails to stay under the radar.
The same Ottawa school district recently announced that it would be collating data, from kindergarten-age and up, on sexuality and gender identity.
The survey collecting this data was dubbed “demonic” after having gained negative attention for the sensitive nature of the information it wished to extrapolate.
A high-schooler was recently suspended for rejecting a Remembrance Day poppy containing an LGBT rainbow within its design as the student believed the action was disrespectful to the dead.
The school urged the student to keep silent following the decision to exclude her from the classroom until Remembrance Day was over.
