I’m Not Making This Up, You Know

Katherine Timpf reports over at NRO that a

Nebraska school district has instructed its teachers to stop referring to students by “gendered expressions” such as “boys and girls,” and use “gender inclusive” ones such as “purple penguins” instead.

The piece quotes the Lincoln School Superintendent as saying, “We don’t get involved with gender preferences. We’re educating all kids . . . and we can’t be judgmental.”


I wonder what kind of critical thinking skills this sort of accommodation of gender identity disorder will teach the purple penguins in Lincoln.

  1. I live in the south. NONE of those silly things happen here. (How would a teacher deal with it if the students couldn’t say “Yes ma’me?” This is the best application of “state’s rights” and local rule, Anybody tries to call my daughter a “purple penguin” and I’m all over ’em. The basic problem seems to be that having failed at teaching reading, writing and computation, some schools are struggling for a new mission. Whether this is a conscious decision, or not, I can’t tell.

  2. Answer this for me. Are their any children in the room that are not boys and girls? If not then it sounds like that is a pretty accurate term to use.

    Weapons grade stupid.

  3. So, because perhaps .01% of children might have a true gender identity disorder we have to implant a gender identity disorder on the remaining 99.99% of the children in a school. Gotcha!

    Top. Men. Dear lord save us from the crazies that have come to dominate our culture. Please, I beg of you, before our children are completely destroyed!

  4. What.

    No, seriously, that’s my reaction. Flat ‘What’.

    I wish I had more rum. Why is the rum gone?

  5. those people calling the rest of us prudes won’t even admit that boys and girls exist. I bet sex ed in that school district is amazing.

  6. “We’re educating all kids . . . and we can’t be judgmental.”

    Let a kid bring his gun to school and justify his action by referring to the Second Amendment. Watch how fast he gets arrested instead of educated and how judgmental everyone involved becomes.
