VANCOUVER, Canada — In Canada, the fight is on over a radical sex education curriculum being pushed in public schools by LGBTQ advocates. Many parents fear their children will become confused and even brainwashed, while supporters claim the program is about allowing students to be their “true selves.”
It’s called Sexual Orientation and Gender Identification, or SOGI, a curriculum that teaches public school students across Canada to celebrate the homosexual lifestyle and that gender is fluid. In other words, your gender is not dependent on what parts you were born with but rather what you feel like in the moment.
One female teacher in Canada told her young class, “There are people who are boys, there are people who are girls, there are people whose gender might be a little bit of both or might even be neither.”
Lessons include books about transgender children, such as 10,000 Dresses, and songs like “The Rainbow Song,” which includes the line, “Gender won’t decide the choices we make. Some boys like dressing up; some girls like catching snakes.”
The SOGI curriculum started in British Columbia in 2016 and is quickly spreading throughout Canada.
“And I just thought, who decided that this was OK to teach our children?” said Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson, a leading opponent of SOGI.
Tyler Thompson, an author and inspirational speaker says, among other things, SOGI mandates children as young as kindergarten age be told they can be a different gender than their actual one.
“And we are seeing the results of that now because some kids are reacting very emotionally and saying, and they’re in fear, will I suddenly struggle with feeling like a different gender inside of my body?”, Tyler Thompson said.
Kari Simpson of Culture Guard – another leading opponent – calls the curriculum nothing short of child abuse.
“So all those beautiful qualities that make young girls beautiful girls and women are being basically vilified, the things that make our boys, boys, are being taken from them, so equating young men to be strong protectors, is something that’s now evil,” Simpson said.
But Morgane Oger, a transsexual and SOGI supporter, claims it’s about acceptance – not indoctrination.
“The idea is to teach kids that there are gay kids and there are trans kids and there are trans parents and gay parents in our society and everybody is wanted and desired – after all, that’s what our Human Rights code says and it’s the role of schools to teach the following of our laws, right?”
Simpson disagrees, saying she see SOGI’S real goal as:
“Altering our culture from a hetero-normative society into one where anything goes, no boundaries, no values, no morals, it’s a hedonistic cult basically,” she said.
Drag Queen Story Hour
Another blaring example is Drag Queen Story Hour – It’s happening in Canada and America, where some public schools and libraries invite Drag Queens, some dressed like horned demons, to read to young children.
“It’s a social deconstructionist agenda, they’re using little 5 year olds to accomplish this and then raise them up to be radicalized social justice warriors and parents are waking up and saying no.”
