Yeah... they'd better start thinking about...

...building a new "Circle of Friends University" to go along with this.

-- STOCKHOLM -- At the "Egalia" preschool, staff avoid using words like "him" or "her" and address the 33 kids as "friends" rather than girls and boys.

They've have adopted the genderless "hen," a word that doesn't exist in Swedish but is used in some feminist and gay circles.

To even things out, many preschools have hired "gender pedagogues" to help staff identify language and behavior that risk reinforcing stereotypes.
What kind of parent is willing to experiment on their own child?

My take on this? These kids get to a real-world institution... it ain't gonna be pretty.

You don't see it catching on? It's just insane enough that in ten years and it will be the norm. Look at the changes in Canada and attitude towards things like sexual orientation, abortion, etc. The liberal swing in attitudes was swift and dramatic and yet people are inclined to talk about the *old* attitudes as though they are ancient and not less than one generation in the past.

"Sexual orientation", you say?

When did pedophilia, necrophilia and bestiality become okay? I must have missed the memo...

It won't matter what they do, some little girl will try to make a pretend doll to hold and (horrors) some boy will make a pretend gun out of his pointed finger. Can you imagine the thought police coming down on these little preschoolers? Yup all they are making is a broken society where nurturing by the females and defense of the family by the males will be nonexistence and the "primitives" will take over.

yup... as anybody who actually has children is all too aware.

gotta love the lunatic left, though... they sure don't give up easily.

From an intense aversion to PC Speak. Left-wingers like Canadianna (and sadly, at least one Blogging Tory still trying to pretend he is a conservative) seem to think that the words "sexual orientation" now refer exclusively to homosexuality or heterosexuality. They do not. The meanings of those two words remain exactly the same as they have alway been.

I also refuse to use the nonsensical word "homophobia" out of respect for our Latin roots. Fear of "the same", you say? Same what? Same breakfast cereal every morning? As above, if you mean homosexual then SAY homosexual!

Language evolves, sure (what exactly does "meme" define that wasn't already covered by one or more English words?)...but the outright bastardizing of it for political purposes just pisses me off.



("going forward"? oh, please...)

They mean what they have always meant
