The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a “self-assessment form” that heavily pushes woke inclusivity on educators, school administrators, and school health professionals and urges the avoidance of the words “male” and “female” in sex education.
Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) tweeted a warning about it this week, writing, “Just when you think the agency couldn’t lose any more credibility, Biden’s CDC is urging schools to avoid the words ‘male’ and ‘female’ in sexual health education. With this type of politicization, parents are going to be rightfully skeptical of everything the CDC says.”
The document is apparently a blueprint for schools to promote radical LGBTQ propaganda. It’s called “LGBTQ Inclusivity in School: A Self-Assessment Tool” and is published by the CDC’s Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH). It was released just days after Christmas.
“Creating and sustaining inclusive school environments, policies, programs, and practices that include LGBTQ youth is one strategy for improving the health and academic success of all youth,” the guide asserts. “Inclusive in this context refers to the presence of clear policies or practices that address the needs of LGBTQ students who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized due to factors such as sexual orientation and gender identity/expression.”

“To assist schools and districts in addressing the health and academic needs of LGBTQ students, this self-assessment tool was created to help school and district staff understand current policies, programs, and practices that may contribute to safe, inclusive environments where all youth can be successful,” the document contends.
Educators, school administrators, and school health professionals answer questions using a three-part scale based on a series of multiple-choice questions rated A, B, or C. Answers ostensibly determine how “inclusive” they are on the LGBTQ Inclusivity Continuum. The assessment also has a section for “all users.”

From low to high, the rankings include “Commit to Change” for schools that are “minimally inclusive,” “Beginning to Break Through” for schools that are “moderately inclusive,” and finally, “Awesome Ally” for schools that are “highly inclusive.”
The first question on the scale is revelatory, to say the least, “I recognize that gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation can be complex, are unique to an individual, and can be experienced on a continuum.”
The CDC has lost all credibility with me, and many others that I know.

Other questions ask educators about a student’s gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation; use gender-neutral terms and preferred pronouns; refer to students by chosen names, not birth names; and whether or not they “advocate for LGBTQ inclusive and affirming materials in all school and classroom environments.”
To achieve a high ranking on the continuum, it is evident that the educator must believe in radical leftist gender ideology and be willing to actively push such propaganda in the classroom. They would also need to be active in their school’s Gay Straight Alliance/Genders and Sexualities Alliance (GSA) organizations.
Based on the assessment, the guide provides links to a number of gay and transgender advocacy groups, such as GLAAD, GLSEN, the Human Rights Campaign, and the Gay Straight Alliance Network.

The educators’ assessment encourages teachers to display gay and transgender pride flags and other decorations to signal the classroom is “a safe space for LGBTQ students.”
Administrators are asked about school health policies that include anti-bullying and non-discrimination. The questionnaire asks whether there are policies in place to allow “students to use the bathroom/locker room which aligns to their chosen gender.”
What the heck does this have to do with your Congressionally-granted authority to attempt to contain communicable diseases?!?!?

CDC when created: The Public Health Service established the Communicable Disease Center (CDC) in 1946 to work on malaria, typhus, and other infectious diseases.
CDC today: we instruct schools to make your kids gay, confused, and unstable.

Another question asks if there are policies being implemented to accommodate students “who want their paperwork to present their chosen name and pronouns, rather than their legal name.”
Nowhere in the document does the word “parent” or the phrase “parental consent” appear.
“During sexual health education lessons, I present information on the range of gender identities and sexual orientations which make up the diversity of friend and romantic relationships,” a question for health teachers reads.
The document also disturbingly mandates that during sex education, health teachers must “present information on all types of sex, not centering on penis/vagina penetrative sex,” and avoid the male/female paradigm by using phrases like “a body with a penis” or “a body with a vagina.”
The CDC is funded by American tax dollars but evidently does not answer to parents when it comes to their children’s sex education.
