New Jersey to teach ‘gender identity’ lessons to 1st and 2nd graders

In fall 2022, the New Jersey Education curriculum will include teaching gender identity to 1st and 2nd graders. To put things in perspective, these are six- and seven-year-olds.

A sample lesson plan from New Jersey says, “You might feel like a boy even though you have body parts that some people might say are girl parts.”

The New Jersey Education lesson plans call for the graphic use of language (describing) certain parts of the body which we will not detail here; yet they plan to use these words to teach your six and seven year olds.

It’s not about older Americans making personal decisions based on their own gender identity. How can responsible adults believe this is the appropriate age for a six or seven year old?

Still, all of this should take place legally under New Jersey state sex education guidelines that go into effect in September 2022.

The standards list “performance expectations” for
second-grade students, which include discussion of “the range
ways people express their gender and how gender
role stereotypes can limit behavior. reported that “a state school district has distributed sample lesson plans indicating first-graders might learn they can have ‘boy parties’ but ‘feel like’ a daughter.

Fox News reports on this topic continued:

A lesson plan titled “Purple, Pink, and Blue” indicates
teachers talking to their first graders about gender
identity, and its first objective is to ensure that students
be able to define “gender, gender identity and gender
role stereotypes.

He further asks these very young children to name “at least two things they have been taught about gender role stereotypes and how these things can limit people of all genders.”

“Gender identity is that feeling of knowing your
sex. You might feel like a boy, you might
feel like a girl,” the lesson plan reads.
“You might feel like a boy even though you have a body
parts that some people might tell you are “girl” parts.
You might feel like a girl even though you got body
parts that some people might tell you are “boys” parts.

New Jersey State Senator Holly Schepisi received the so-called educational materials from concerned parents.

Schepisi told Fox News that as a “mother and legislator, I can understand the need for students to receive an age-appropriate education, but that’s beyond pale.”

“We knew when Governor Murphy used the cover of
the pandemic to pass these new standards
that something was terribly wrong, and now we can
see clearly why they needed to do it in secret. the
the agenda swung up to the left in an attempt to
sexualize our precious children as parents are
fight back,” Schepisi said.

“Based on the overwhelming reach I have
received from parents, Democrats should expect a
counting that fall,” Schepisi said.

New Jersey Sen. Michael Testa weighed in, telling Fox News that this sex ed lesson plan for six- and seven-year-olds is “abuse.”

“We fought to get the kids back to school in person. Then we had to fight to get our kids’ masks off.”

“Now we need to watch our elementary school children, who have already fallen behind thanks to Murphy lockdowns, learn about genitalia and gender identity?” Testa said. “It’s abuse, pure and simple.”

Testa concluded by saying, “every Democrat in the
vote this fall. ahead of a widely predicted Republican wave, to “prepare for the army of parents who won’t sit around and watch you steal our children’s innocence without a fight,” Testa said.

REMARK: We take no position on the legitimate issue of gender identity. This is a singular focus on the age appropriateness of exposing this graphically sexual content to six and seven year olds.
