New Jersey to Require Youngest Students to Be Indoctrinated in Gender Ideology

New Jersey will begin teaching its youngest students this fall that it is “normal” to “feel like you’re a boy even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are ‘girl’ parts.”

In June 2020, New Jersey LGBTQ activists, including abortion industry giant Planned Parenthood – now the second largest provider of transgender hormone treatments in the nation – praised Democrats for approving sex ed standards that indoctrinate young elementary students into the dogma that the science of biological sex is subservient to activist-invented gender ideology.

Planned Parenthood has been working with LGBTQ activists for years now to achieve nationalized sex ed standards that indoctrinate children into a culture that normalizes transgender ideology and abortion on demand.

Monica Cline, a former Title X family planning instructor who was trained by Planned Parenthood and taught at sex ed conferences for teens, now runs It Takes a Family, which seeks “to encourage parents to ‘Reclaim Parenthood’ and become their children’s greatest advocates and educators.”

“The government and others who support this kind of anti-science and anti-child agenda are trying to redefine humanity and destroy the innocence of kids by manipulating children as young as possible to indoctrinate them into their worldview,” Cline told The Star News Network.

The New Jersey sex ed standards were modeled after the National Sexuality Education Standards for grades K-12.

At that time, the group promoting the gender ideology indoctrination said in a statement at Insider NJ that sex education is now an “equity issue”:

As our nation reckons with the systemic racism and violence against Black communities that is a part of all of our institutions, including our education systems, we take pause today to consider how sex education is an equity issue … A young person’s ability to receive high-quality, comprehensive sex education should not depend on their district, their school, or their teacher.

The LGBTQ activists wrote that, while they “commended” the State Board of Education for their “updated” sex ed standards, “there is still more work to be done.”

For example, the activists said they wanted “all New Jersey students” to be required to be instructed in “affirming sex education,” and also for state lawmakers to pass legislation “that repeals outdated statutes that require stressing the failure rates of contraception and that over-emphasize abstinence instead of educating young people without shame and judgment about all of the ways to protect their health.”

As Fox News reported, in Westfield, New Jersey, the Board of Education gave parents lesson plans associated with the new sex-ed standards in February.

In a lesson plan titled “Purple, Pink and Blue,” for example, first graders will be expected to “define gender, gender identity and gender role stereotypes,” and to “name at least two things they’ve been taught about gender stereotypes, and how those things may limit people of all genders.”

Teachers are instructed to ask first graders, “How do you know what gender you are?”

The instructions add:

Responses will vary, but may include:

  • “My family told me”
  • “I know because of my body parts”
  • “I just know it”

If a student says something like, “I just know it” or “I feel that way on the inside,” explain that knowing what gender you are is called “gender identity.” Put the sign that reads “gender identity” up (or write the phrase) on the board. Ask students to repeat it with you. Point out that the word “Identity” begins with an “I.” Say something like, “Identity starts with an I. That’s how you can remember it. ‘I’ feel, ‘I’ know.

Teachers are instructed to continue with the indoctrination that “feeling” like you are a gender that is incompatible with your biological sex is “perfectly normal”:

Gender identity is that feeling of knowing your gender. You might feel like you are a boy, you might feel like you are a girl. You might feel like you’re a boy even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are ‘girl’ parts. You might feel like you’re a girl even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are ‘boy’ parts. And you might not feel like you’re a boy or a girl, but you’re a little bit of both.

“No matter how you feel, you’re perfectly normal!” teachers are supposed to say to six-year-old children.

In a second-grade lesson plan called “Understanding Our Bodies,” teachers are told to tell students “there are some body parts that mostly just girls have and some parts that mostly just boys have.”

“Being a boy or a girl doesn’t have to mean you have those parts, but for most people this is how their bodies are,” teachers are instructed to tell second graders. “Most people have a vulva and a vagina or a penis and testicles but some people’s bodies can be different. Your body is exactly what is right for you.”

“The very foundation of their worldview revolves around pulling the floor out of from under the family,” Cline explained to The Star News Network about the activists behind this sex ed curriculum. “They are trying to erase the uniqueness and God-given identity of mothers, fathers, and children.”

“It’s no wonder kids are having mental health issues in schools, that they are depressed and having trouble expressing emotion,” she added. “These kids don’t have the ability to cope with confusing and backwards instruction like what these people want. They are being mentally abused by Big Education.”
