Gender Is Nothing But a Stereotype

They say ignorance is bliss. They say that because ‘they’ are ignorant. There is actually no excuse for ignorance of anything these days. We live in a world of information quite literally at our fingertips. Ignorance is not bliss my friend, it is apathetic, and it does nothing but foster deception. The road of deception leads to enablement, and when one enables the deception one takes part in their own destruction.
To say that ‘gender is nothing but a stereotype’, or a label, is tantamount to believing that humanity itself is an irrelevant stereotype, or just a label that means nothing. In a society where gender means nothing but a label, we are creating ignorance and deception. The same philosophy would make humanity no different than the animals or plants. Moreover this ignorance of gender makes us worse than the animals, at least they are informed enough to know what they are.
Today we can choose who and what we are. If we were born a male we can chose to become a female. But what if we ignorantly chose to go a step farther and force people, or in this case, force school children to become the opposite gender then it is no longer even a choice, its programming robots. Well it is happening in a town in northern Italy and is coming soon to a town near you. And it’s called ‘reprogramming’ disguised, (it’s always disguised) in this case as ‘teaching respect’.
Parents from the north of Italy have organized a massive , (It’s in Italian, you can go to Google translate here) it’s called “Defend Our Children,” against gender ideology in schools, which will be held this Saturday in the Saint John Lateran Square in Rome. The demonstrators will be protesting Italian educational programs that are meant to blur or make the sexual identity of children irrelevant.
In the northern Italian city of Trieste, parents are in uproar over a taxpayer-funded elementary school program that includes dressing little boys as girls, and little girls as boys to overcome or desensitizing so-called “gender stereotypes.” Schools are calling the exercise “the game of respect,” which purportedly adopts many guidelines from the European standards on sex education, attributed to the World Health Organization. Here in America we have Communist Core, a standardization program attributed to the illegal unconstitutional department of education/indoctrination.
The so-called “game of respect” consists of a box containing several cards, presenting the figures of different working roles: male and female housewives and husbands, male and female plumbers and firefighters, with the figures represented in exactly the same way to show that males and females are completely interchangeable. In other words neutered.
Then, there is also a card game called “If he were a she and she were a he,” where boys and girls are expected to exchange the clothes they are wearing with someone of the opposite gender: the boy dresses as a girl and the girl as a boy, and they discuss how they feel in their new “role of gender reassignment.” I mean it is just a label right…it doesn’t mean anything - or does it?
It is already confusing to me…on the one hand males are interchangeable with females and on the other hand they are regarding them as opposite. If I’m confused I am sure that the children are confused. But then this is indoctrination not education my friend, nothing needs to make sense, it just needs to be accepted...that why it’s called programming.
Parents are especially up in arms over the school district’s attempt to conceal the program and its contents from them. (Why would they do that unless they knew it was wrong?) The father of one of the children, Amedeo Rossetti, said that in early February, he attended a PTA meeting where the program for the second semester was presented. When Rossetti posed specific questions on issues of gender, school administrators categorically denied the presence of gender-based activities at the school.
One of the goals of the protesters is the enforcement of the “informed consent,” whereby parents can ask the school to be informed before their children are introduced to courses with themes like those regarding gender theory. Well as I said it is no longer a choice it is mandatory.
Parents are also protesting a sex education program for kindergarten students intended to highlight the similarities and differences between boys’ and girls’ bodies. The program involves one child lying down and the others placing their hand first on the child’s heart to feel how it beats, then on the diaphragm to feel it rise and fall of breathing. The text reads that “obviously in the genital area children can see that they are made differently from one another.” Though the text does not specifically state that the children are to touch each other in the genital area, parents are complaining that it is “understood.” But it doesn’t mean anything, if it is just a label.
Rossetti says that the upcoming demonstration in the Italian capital is “absolutely essential,” since it is “up to us as parents” to defend our right to oversee the education of our children. The primary responsibility for our children’s upbringing and education “depends on us and we cannot delegate it,” he said.
Then why have we done so? The fact that we are on this road proves that we have delegated it. Talk about ignorant deception…
The spokesman for the protest, Prof. Massimo Gandolfini, (Again in Italian) said that Saturday’s demonstration was organized “to protect our children from the propaganda of gender theories that are appearing surreptitiously and in an ever more worrying way in schools.”
The event, he said, will defend the institution of marriage as composed of a man and a woman, the child’s right to have a mother figure and a father, without having to suffer as kindergarteners the propaganda of gender ideology that Pope Francis has defined as “an error of the human mind.” As I said ignorance. And aren’t we a little late and a dollar short?
Just this past Sunday, Pope Francis (I’m sorry again it’s in Italian) spoke out yet again against gender ideology and the right and duty of parents to guide their children’s education, telling them that they are the ones “primarily responsible” for their children’s formation.
The Pope said that children today “are beginning to hear strange ideas, a sort of ideological colonization that poisons the soul and the family: we must act against this.” Well Francis I don’t know about just “beginning to hear strange ideas.” It’s been going on for decades, you are just now “beginning” to pay attention to it.
Pope Francis cited a recent case where a good Christian couple with children in the first and second grade had to “re-catechize” their children in the evenings, to counteract what they were receiving “from some teachers of the school or from the textbooks that they were using.” Boy’ does that sound familiar, I had to do that with my son more than 25 years ago! Today it is a thousand times worse.
“This ideological colonization,” the Pope said, “does great harm, and can destroy a family a society, or even a country.”
So true! Moreover, 'it is’ doing great harm…
THE BOTTOM LINE: It is obvious to me that the governments around the world are all investing in future tyranny. We are being desensitized from everything so that whatever comes our way we will not be surprised and just accept it like good little programed robots.
If gender is an irrelevant stereotype, then soon ‘you too’ will be irrelevant. And unless you don’t care my suggestion is that you get up off your apathetic couch and do as the Italians are doing now before it gets here.
Oh! I’m sorry, it’s already here…
