SHAME.  ON.  THE UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATION.

The want publicity from a freak rather than support student-athletes.

All the real women who have to compete against this Frankenstein need to just step down from the blocks at the starter's pistol, rather than legitimize the unfairness.

        "In the midst of a national furor over a sexually explicit graphic novel, the school has proclaimed it has the duty to expose children to pornographic imagery — to support free speech."

Vermont school commits to kiddie porn as enlightening for children

Vermont's Essex-Westford School District, which includes the town of Essex that last year fired a high school lifeguard for merely questioning Critical Race Theory, has done it again.  In the midst of a national furor over a sexually explicit graphic novel, the school has proclaimed it has the duty to expose children to pornographic imagery — to support free speech.

It is axiomatic that free speech rights do not extend fully into schools — they never have.  For example, the First Amendment protects quite a shocking variety of pornographic materials, including bondage and rape videos.  Are those acceptable, protected school teaching materials?  School administrations are supposed to be answerable to the appropriate needs of children.

But ESWD has declared itself the champion of the minuscule percentage of children afflicted with gender dysphoria, which not only is rare, but most often disappears with adulthood.  All children must be sacrificed at Essex-Westford.

The book in question, Gender Queer, created a national controversy not because the subject of the book is a "non-binary" student (a multitude of such titles abound, as all informed parents are now unavoidably aware), but because the book features "pages of explicit illustrations depicting oral sex [sic]."  The school's defiant letter to parents avoids mentioning this fact, instead proclaiming itself the defender of constitutional values:

Essex High School recently learned that a gender-affirming book in our library is being discussed on various websites. There is a long history of certain books being banned in the United States, so this is not a new conversation.

This sentence marks the beginning of a perverse justification for distributing pornography to children.  The rationale employed would serve to groom children sexually for adult sodomy as a child's "right."  The rights-defending hero-school fails to observe that there is not a long history of providing sexually explicit graphic novels to schoolchildren by public schools — this is very much a novel conversation.

Defying a request to remove the book, the school instead weaponized the GBQLT etc. movement as an excuse:

At Essex High School ... we know how critically important it is within our curriculum ... to have a representation of a plethora of lived experiences. Our students have a right to well-balanced library collection, including Gender Queer ... which is one title sitting among numerous titles featuring cisgender, heterosexual relationships which, on a side note, are not being targeted.

        "Race-shaming kids is not “teaching students” about race or history. It’s bullying and racism. It’s immoral, unethical, and schools should not be spending your money to ensure the teachers they hire with your tax dollars will promote it."

School Districts are Using Screening Software to Ensure Teaching Applicants Are #WOKE Enough to Hire!

As parents push back against the bullying and race-shaming of their kid’s School districts are filtering teaching applicants who are precisely that. Districts are partnering with Teacher-hiring software company Nimble (as in paying them with your money) to identify #Woke Candidates for their classrooms.

Experts say that school districts are increasingly asking teacher candidates questions about cultural competency, race, and equity during the application and interview process. And although districts are trying to diversify their teaching force to better match their students, it’s slow work.

“Now that we’ve become a little more aware of the concept of anti-racism and maybe a little more woke as a culture, I do think that districts have started to emphasize these questions a little bit more,” Dachille said. “They might be more common, they might be more explicit.”

These districts are filtering in favor of educators who will promote Critical Race Shaming Theory – in violation of NH State Law, by the way, though we do not know if any NH Districts are paying Nimble for this service.

That’s your job. No matter what state you reside in or where your district is, start digging. Find out if schools are using this or anything like it to pre-screen candidates for the classroom.

Nimble, a teacher-hiring company that uses artificial intelligence to determine applicants’ “cultural competency” by examining their applications and answers during the interview process.

Race-shaming kids is not “teaching students” about race or history. It’s bullying and racism. It’s immoral, unethical, and schools should not be spending your money to ensure the teachers they hire with your tax dollars will promote it.

December 24, 2021 - ONTARIO, CANADA

      "The court ruled that because non-white teachers are less likely to pass the math test, it should no longer be required."

       And because aerophobes are less likely to land a plane safely, airlines should no longer take that into consideration.

Ontario Schools Will No Longer Require TEACHERS to Pass Math Proficiency Test Due to ‘Racial Disparities’

The Ontario Superior Court of Justice has deemed math proficiency tests for teachers “unconstitutional” due to “racial disparities.”

The court ruled that because non-white teachers are less likely to pass the math test, it should no longer be required.

As one social media commentator aptly pointed out, Ontario teachers no longer need to pass basic math in order to teach basic math. ~~~~~~~~~~

The Daily Caller reports that “schools in Ontario had previously offered candidates the opportunity to retake the test multiple times, but the court ruled that ‘racialized teacher candidates who have been disproportionately unsuccessful on the MPT should not have to keep retaking the test.'”

Obviously, as was pointed out in court, students learn more from teachers who understand the subject that they are teaching. However, the court ruled that it was more important to have diversity in the classroom.

“Racialized students benefit from being taught by racialized teachers,” the court decision stated. “The deleterious effects of the MPT on racialized teacher candidates who have been unsuccessful in the test outweighs its benefits.”

       We can see from this data that COVID is not all bad. If it keeps your children out of these leftist indoctrination centers, it might even be life-saving.

Enrollment in Universities Across the Country Is Down Significantly Since COVID

Universities in Michigan and across the country face declining enrollments over the past few years since COVID. An analysis by Bridge Michigan shows that enrollment of first-time students is down at 12 of the state’s 13 public universities that have made their numbers public. The numbers are as bad for community colleges. ~~~~~~~~~~~

A report at Bridge Michigan stated:

Nationwide, the number of 2020 high school graduates who enrolled in college in the fall of 2020 dropped 22 percent from the previous year, driven primarily by a decline in low-income and urban student enrollment.

As Bridge Michigan reported, first-time enrollment at the state’s four-year public universities dropped more than 7 percent between 2019 and 2020, and first-time enrollment at the state’s community colleges slumped between 8 and 10 percent.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

With the declining enrollments, there is space available on campus.  This space is now being used by the federal government to house Afghanis who were shipped to the US this past year.  

MLive reports:

Hundreds of Afghanistan refugees are finding temporary homes on Eastern Michigan University’s campus in Ypsilanti.

According to the Associated Press, private and U.S. State Department-sponsored flights out of Kabul have been ongoing since the Taliban took over in August and the U.S. left the county after two decades of occupation. Of the approximately 73,000 Afghan refugees who made it out in the initial August evacuation, many still are finding places to stay in the U.S., officials said.

EMU, alongside Jewish Family Services of Washtenaw County, has secured housing for about 300 of these Afghan refugees in EMU apartments on campus, university officials said.
 
JFSWC had helped several of the families find extended-stay hotels throughout Washtenaw County, and has assisted in the organizing of background checks, medical tests and COVID-19 vaccinations, officials said. In the last month, the organization informed EMU of the need to find living space for these families outside of these hotels, which the university “expressed an immediate willingness to help,” officials said.

        "The statement for women then is you do not matter, what you do is not important, and little girls are going to be thrown under the bus by all of this,"

USA Swimming official who resigned over trans swimmer Lia Thomas says athlete is 'destroying women's swimming'

Lia Thomas previously competed as a man at Penn for two full seasons, most recently in 2019. A USA Swimming official who resigned in protest of transgender swimmer Lia Thomas told Fox News on Monday that she can't stand by and watch as girls are "thrown under the bus" by "biological" male competitors.

Cynthia Millen stepped down last week after officiating USA Swimming meets for over three decades. Her decision came days before the U.S. Paralympics Swimming National Championships in Greensboro, N.C.

"The fact is that swimming is a sport in which bodies compete against bodies. Identities do not compete against identities," Millen said in an appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight." "Men are different from women, men swimmers are different from women, and they will always be faster than women."

 
Parents who were outraged at the NCAA for allowing University of Pennsylvania transgender swimmer Lia Thomas to compete and dominate in women’s competitions wrote a letter to the college athletics’ governing body demanding a rule change.

In her resignation letter, Millen said that she felt University of Pennsylvania transgender athlete Lia Thomas's record-setting dominance of collegiate women's swimming was grossly unfair, writing that she can "no longer participate in a sport that allows biological men to compete against women."

Thomas previously competed as a man at Penn for two full seasons, most recently in 2019. NCAA rules dictate that transgender players must partake in one year of testosterone suppression before they can compete as women. 

"It’s horrible," Millen said. "The statement for women then is you do not matter, what you do is not important, and little girls are going to be thrown under the bus by all of this," Millen said, telling Fox News guest host Sean Duffy that Thomas is "going to be destroying women’s swimming."

Trans swimmer's teammates wanted to boycott meet, but feared dire consequences

Frustrations surge as Lia Thomas takes over women's record book

A man who has decided to portray himself as female, and has been competing on the University of Pennsylvania's women's swim team after several years on the men's team, already has caused disruptions in the sport.

It was reported that an official with USA Swimming resigned in protest over the new agenda from Lia Thomas, who competed as a male for three years before identifying and competing as a woman. He also has destroyed a long list of women's records for swim events.

WND columnist Dennis Prager said, "Perhaps the most obvious moral and intellectual absurdity of all is the notion that Lia Thomas, a member of the University of Pennsylvania's women's swim team, won fairly in the team's recent meet against the Cornell University women's swim team."

"You see, Lia Thomas was a man until two years ago, when he announced that she is really a woman."

He explained, "Now, neither I nor most fair-minded people care if Lia Thomas considers herself a woman. Many of us are even prepared to refer to Lia as 'she' – especially if she dresses, acts and looks like a woman. (For the record, most people who watch Lia's interview online and did not know that Lia claims to be a woman would assume that they are watching a man.) But no fair-minded person can accept that Lia should be allowed to join a women's swim team and compete against female teammates and against other women's swim teams."

Now Thomas' disruptions have extended to members of the school's women's team. The Daily Mail explained swimmers on the team "were so upset over the advantages of transgender teammate Lia Thomas they considered boycotting their final home meet of the season."

But they fear being labeled if they conduct any protest.

A source told the publication, "They've been ignored by both Penn and the NCAA, and there is a feeling among some of the girls that they should make some sort of statement, seize the opportunity while they have a spotlight on them to make their feelings about the issue known."

The team has discussed protesting the Jan. 8 event, but decided against a boycott "for fear that it would keep them out of the Ivy League championship, where the team's top 17 swimmers – out of a total of 41 – will compete in February."

"They're reluctant to jeopardize their opportunity to make the elite Ivy League squad," the paper said the source reported.

The source told the Daily Mail Thomas likely will blow away the competition, but that the crowd probably will cheer more for the second-place finisher than for Thomas.

Teammates have spoken, but only anonymously, about their frustrations of having Thomas in the competition. They cited the final home meet, which traditionally is supposed to be recognition for all the seniors.

~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

"At stake here is the integrity of women's sports," the parents told the NCAA in a letter, a copy of which was obtained by the Mail. "The precedent being set – one in which women do not have a protected and equitable space to compete – is a direct threat to female athletes in every sport. What are the boundaries? How is this in line with the NCAA's commitment to providing a fair environment for student-athletes?"

January 7, 2022 - UNITED KINGDOM

         "Families are the building blocks of our civilization, and we have been tearing them apart for a half-century now from every side. As we are just beginning to see, there will be hell to pay for this."

There'll be hell to pay for the Sexual Revolution's destructive effects on the family

~~~~~~~~~~ Now consider the results of a recent survey commissioned by Topp Morning Casino, released last month. 1,000 British mothers were surveyed, and the survey found that “7.8% admitted to lying over the biological lineage of their children.” In short, almost ten percent of mothers in the U.K. do not know who the father of their children is.

“We were shocked,” a spokesperson for the company stated on their website. “This means that there potentially 2.1 million couples in the UK where the father isn’t the biological one.” According to the New York Post, the 2014 Australian documentary series “Who’s Your Daddy?” stated that “up to 30% of paternities are misattributed,” while a 2005 American study “estimated that 4% of American fathers were raising a child that they did not know was not biologically their own.”

Consider these staggering stats in the context of an entire reproductive industry dedicated to creating fatherless or motherless children. In 2011, a ground-breaking film titled Anonymous Father’s Day was released, detailing the struggles of thousands of people seeking to discover their genetic origins. Conceived through artificial insemination with donor semen from sperm banks, the documentary traces the stories of men and women attempting to identify their biological fathers. It is based largely on a study on the subject called “My Daddy’s Name is Donor.”

In short, the Sexual Revolution has transformed the makeup of families in profoundly primal ways. Children are being born into a world where the ground is shifting beneath their feet.

It will never cease striking me as absurd that it has to be said, but it does: Sex makes babies. Babies are best served by growing up in a family headed by a father and a mother. The Sexual Revolution really was a revolution, premised on the insane idea that we could mess around however we like and still live in a peaceful, functioning society. Families are the building blocks of our civilization, and we have been tearing them apart for a half-century now from every side. As we are just beginning to see, there will be hell to pay for this.

In his massive study, Unwin essentially explains that once the fabric of a civilization has been shredded, it cannot be put back together. Once we have liberated ourselves from responsibility and each other, civilizations collapse as the bonds that tie us together are severed. We really are “in this together”—and when we fail to recognize that, the impact is on a civilizational scale. Because as G.K. Chesterton once wisely noted: “The most extraordinary thing in the world is an ordinary man and an ordinary woman and their ordinary children.”

       I'm all for a new rule where only transgender men are allowed to compete in womens' sports, and only transgender women are allowed to compete in mens' sports. Then we shouldn't have any more of these weird, inexplicable results. Makes sense to me.

Female trans UPenn swimmer Lia Thomas is CRUSHED by male trans competitor, Iszac Henig

Penn's Transgender Swimmer Lost To Yale's Transgender Swimmer In A Hotly  Contested Women's Ivy League 100 meter Race – OutKick

Transgender University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas was crushed twice in a women's swim meet by another transgender competitor who is transitioning from female to male - first in the 100-yard freestyle, where she placed fifth, and then again in the 400-yard freestyle relay.   

Competing against Ivy League rivals Dartmouth and Yale, Thomas won the first of her four races by just two seconds - one month after she shattered two women's records with a 38-second margin against her closest competitor. She also narrowly won the 500-yard freestyle by a second, with bystanders telling DailyMail.com that she seemed to be 'coasting' and 'barely trying'. 

But stunned parents at the meet held at UPenn's pool in Philadelphia gasped as Yale swimmer Iszac Henig easily beat out his opponents in the women's 100-yard freestyle with a time of 49.57 seconds. Thomas finished fifth with a time of 52.84 seconds.
