    The term woke was originally coined by progressive Black Americans and used in racial justice movements in the early to mid-1900s.

    To be “woke” politically in the Black community means that someone is informed, educated and conscious of social injustice and racial inequality, Merriam-Webster Dictionary states.

    Hoosier stupid. I am so glad my parents got the hell out of there.

    News from yesterday, Democrats in California (where else) have passed a bill to teach kids about misinformation in the media. Right, democrat state, with a democrat-controlled education union will decide which outlets spew misinformation. I’m sure CNN and MSNBC, New York Times, Washington Post NBC etc will be on the hit parade there. Democrats – see how they indoctrinate young people into their socialist style of government that has never worked as promised.

    Woman gets stabbed or shot in a movie? PG-13. She gets beaten and assaulted? R. She has sex? X. Thus, GOP priorities.

    Teachers are busy teaching the subject they are assigned to teach. They don’t discuss sex unless they are teaching sex education. Even then, they might, and I do mean might, mention to older kids that some people are transxsexual. That isn’t a suggestion to the kid to change their sex.

    I have no problem with homeschooling. If you have an exceptionally bright child, it can keep them engaged, whereas public school can’t. I do have a problem with homeschooling when it is used not for academics but instead to program the unsuspecting child with hate-filled religious rhetoric.

    So, the latest conservative way to ‘cure’ alternative life style is by home schooling? Your morning dose of right-wing fear peddling.

    Human history is in no small part a tale of fear and loathing of variations from the majority normative state of being. Not in every society all of the time from earliest history, but almost a universal societal reality.

    Some of these differences have been recognized as just conditions of birth/nature which the individual has zero control over. This is a very recent phenomenon, as are most of the results of the development and application of critical thinking/scientific processes.

    Until shortly after the US Civil War, club foot was regarded as a punishment from “God” for sinful behavior by the family the child was born into. People believed that the left hand belonged to the devil, as he baptized his trustees with his left hand. On the contrary, a good Christian would only use their right hand to make a cross sign. Back then, plenty of superstitions connected left-handed people with supposedly bringing bad luck.

    People with disabilities finally began to receive some legal protections in the 20th Century but societal treatment of them, including extremely common ostracism, remains mostly disgusting. There remain some number of religious people in the USA and elsewhere who continue to believe that any sort of disability, mental or physical, is the result of moral defects. But gradually this “thinking” is perhaps on the decline — although it may be too soon to be certain of this. It’s been less than a century since a majority of the US believed left-handedness was ungodly.

    LGBTQ+ remain a target here in the USA. They are judged by maybe a majority of Christians as “choosing” not to be heteronormative, which defies “God’s” “plan” for them, and therefore Christians are entitled — no, obliged by their faith tenets — to persecute them. Out of love. For their own good. To compel them to stop choosing not to be heteronormative!

    I really doubt that teachers are going around telling kids to change their gender. Many are trying to support the LGBTQ+ and Trans kids they have in class, but, Hey! those kids are just pieces of s—t, so why bother with them, right!?

    Very simple solution, Mr. Varvel. If you want your child to be educated in a manner that only fits with your religion/politics/belief system, then I agree, send them to religious or private school or homeschool them – BUT ON YOUR OWN DIME, not on our tax dollars. You have no right to force your religion/politics/beliefs on every other child in a public school. It’s easy/peasy. But then, when your kid has problems in college/trade school/the workforce in getting along with colleagues because they are intolerant of anyone who doesn’t believe exactly as they do, don’t come complaining to the rest of us.

    First of all, for those of you saying there is only a binary choice for humans, you are wrong. In nature there is more diversity physically than just male/female.


    “If your baby is born with ambiguous genitalia, the doctors will work to determine the underlying cause. The cause helps guide treatment and decisions about your baby’s gender. Your doctor will likely begin by asking questions about your family and medical history. He or she will do a physical exam to check for testes and evaluate your baby’s genitalia.

    Your medical team will likely recommend these tests:

    Blood tests to measure hormone levelsBlood tests to analyze chromosomes and determine the genetic sex (XX or XY) or tests for single gene disordersUltrasound of the pelvis and abdomen to check for undescended testes, uterus or vaginaX-ray studies using a contrast dye to help clarify anatomyIn certain cases, minimally invasive surgery may be necessary to collect a tissue sample of your newborn’s reproductive organs."

    If nature can produce physically ambiguous genders, why not emotionally ambiguous genders, as well?
