Oregon will begin implementing its progressive agenda in Kindergarten. According to Breitbart, it now requires children to be imbued with gender ideology that includes developing “an understanding” of their own gender within what they call “ethnic studies.”
The 2021 state social studies standards integrated with ethnic studies now include a civics and government education standard for five-year-olds that among some of the guidelines requires them to:
* “Engage in respectful dialogue with classmates to define diversity comparing and contrasting visible and invisible similarities and differences.”
* “Develop an understanding of one’s own identity groups including, but not limited to, race, gender, family, ethnicity, culture, religion, and ability.”
Regarding the Geography standards, children will now receive indoctrination regarding race and cultures, with an emphasis on what progressive and leftist ideology famously trumpets as the ‘marginalized’. The item specifies that children should:
“Examine culturally significant traditions, celebrations, days, and places including those from cultures that are currently and historically marginalized.”
One criticism of this progressive agenda actively pushed in Oregon came from a former Trump-era official.
Candice Jackson, the former Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights at the Department of Education during the administration of former President Trump, tweeted a screenshot of the new teaching plan to be implemented in the state, with the comment:
“Example of how Oregon is blending genderism into every aspect of what passes these days for “education.” Kindergarten social science standards instruct public school teachers to help your 5 year old “develop an understanding of one’s own identity groups including … gender.”
Gender ideology is part of the Democratic agenda. In the states where they govern they have been actively pushing it in schools, and it has penetrated all levels of education.
Children are being victims of an ideology that attacks their innocent nature and will cause confusion in their thoughts, emotions and perceptions, thus affecting their normal development.
Gender ideology is pushing them from a young age to doubt, and even to have a certain aversion for the sex they were born with. As a result, cases of gender dysphoria among children are becoming more and more common and are associated with anxiety disorders and depression.
In Schools aligned with this perverse progressive agenda, hormone and puberty blockers are being promoted at early ages to begin the “gender transition.”
Regarding this, Dr. Quentin Van Meter, president of the American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds), said in an interview with LifeSiteNews, that the use of puberty blockers in children is a practice of “child abuse.”
“We said in our policy statement that it is child abuse for all intents and purposes,” he said. Adding “and that it is taking a very healthy, intentionally designed part of life where a child goes from being a non-reproductive individual to becoming a reproductive individual in a time frame and an age frame where the physiology is there to change the physical body in terms of bone structure, in terms of organ structure, in terms of brain maturation.”
“If you are interrupting that with clearly the intent of never having it go the direction that nature intended, with biological males ending up as adult males and biological females ending up as adult female, if you interrupt that, you are basically setting up a disease state,” the pediatrician continued. “And then on top of that, the purpose is clearly in the vast majority of kids that get on puberty blockers, they will not be allowed to go through their own natural puberty. They will be held back and then given cross-sex hormones.”
“So it’s a conveyor belt. And once that patient is placed on the conveyor belt of puberty blockers, they are carried down the assembly line to cross-sex hormones. And then at the end, have an option to do surgery to mutilate their bodies to appear like the opposite sex,” Van Meter explained.
