Just a quick observation about what is, to me, a perplexing aspect of today’s education environment.
We have a kerfuffle in Florida prompted by a very sensible call to prohibit the radical sexual indoctrination of kids in pre-school through third grade. The “alphabet people,” as one popular stand-up comic likes to call them, have their nickers in a twist over the possibility that other people’s young children won’t be fed a load of malarky regarding their gender identity — won’t be, at least, until they turn nine.
We have stories out of Washington state about schools informing teachers that “Parents are not entitled to know their kids’ [imagined sexual] identities. … That knowledge must be earned.” (Apparently birthing, raising, and protecting the little monsters isn’t enough to earn it.)
In the Commonwealth of Virginia we have (another) instance of the public school system deliberately covering up a horrific act of sexual predation that occurred within the school… because, apparently, parents have to earn the right to know that their kids might end up in the hospital after being sexually assaulted in school by a mob of fellow students. At least we can be thankful that there were no in-school police present, lest anyone feel triggered.
Meanwhile, in “higher” “education”:
A majority of the law students at Yale Law School have gone on record to express their opposition to free speech, after throwing a tantrum that at a more worthy institution would have resulted in disciplinary action but that, for this lot of pampered crybullies, is met with passive acceptance by the emasculated nannies who run America’s Ivy League daycare system.
At considerably less toney Syracuse University, it’s a spot of pro-Russian graffiti that has the administration babysitters scrambling to prevent a meltdown among the undergraduate toddlers. This is hardly the first example of that school’s pathetic pandering to a mewling student mob.
So what I don’t understand is why America’s public elementary and high schools seem to think the sexual misuse and abuse of teens and pre-teens is no big deal, but college administrators think ruffling the feathers of the fragile little chicks enrolled in our universities is a kind of violence.
It almost seems backward, somehow.Published in
