New lesson plans require NJ first graders to start learning about gender identity

The radical indoctrination of America’s youth is far from a fringe conspiracy theory as a published lesson plan for New Jersey first graders requires discussions on gender identity from an organization contracted through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

With the new school year beginning, young students in the Garden State can expect to be forced to confront a politically driven introspection on the realities of binary gender as distorted by woke queer theory peddling Marxists to satisfy their disruption of societal norms well before coming to grips with some of the most basic principles of reading and writing.

According to a sample plan dubbed “Pink, Blue and Purple” after a thirty minute lesson first graders are expected to be able to “define gender, gender identity and gender role stereotypes…and how those things may limit people of all genders.”

“Gender identity is that feeling of knowing your gender,” the lesson plan instructs teachers to tell their typically six-year-old students. “You might feel like you are a boy, you might feel like you are a girl. You might feel like you’re a boy even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are ‘girl’ parts. You might feel like you’re a girl even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are ‘boy’ parts. And you might not feel like you’re a boy or a girl, but you’re a little bit of both. No matter how you feel, you’re perfectly normal!”

The lesson plan is attributed to the nonprofit organization Advocates for Youth which states its vision is “a society in which all young people are valued, respected and treated with dignity; sexuality is accepted as a healthy part of being human; and youth sexual development is normalized and embraced.” (emphasis added)

As part of their purported “Student Bill of Rights” they also contend that students, of no specified age group, have a right to “have support from caring adults who respect, affirm, and celebrate them for who they are.”

While this may seem like an isolated occurrence for New Jersey based on the state’s performance expectations, the organization is contracted through the CDC to provide resources like this to educators and school administrators.

“Advocates for Youth receives funding from CDC’s Division of Adolescent and School Health to,” among other things, “provide training, follow-up support, and technical assistance to local education agency partners to build their ability to (1) strengthen the effectiveness of instructional materials (guided by a scope and sequence that reflects essential knowledge and skills for reducing sexual risk behaviors within the context of a high-quality health education program), and (2) strengthen instructional delivery in classrooms.”

The organization also promotes youth activism for abortion starting as young as 14-years-old that includes abortion doula training to provide various kinds of support prior, during and after an abortion.

The lesson goes on push an introduction into queer theory by instructing students to separate toys into categories of for boys, for girls or for anyone before the instructor is meant to say something such as, “Pretty much anything can be done by anyone, no matter what gender they are” before later suggesting, “No matter your gender, you can play with any of these toys. You can wear whatever clothes you want, or have long or short hair. Be who you are, and enjoy playing with whatever toys you enjoy playing with!”

As scholar James Lindsay laid out in his research on critical theory and all of its derivatives, “Queer Theory exists, in a nutshell, to antagonize norms, normativity, and the normal–that is, anything that can be considered normal by society (even in accurate, neutral description) and thus that carries or can be construed to imply a morally normative expectation about it, which it deems intrinsically oppressive.”

“Queer Theory wouldn’t merely seek to expand the boundaries of ‘normal’ to include circumstances like homosexuality or, stretching the idea further, intersex conditions but to abolish the idea that ‘normal’ is anything but constraining and oppressive entirely.”
