‘Drag Queen Story Hour’ Praised By K-12 Teachers

Published

on

Chickpeas Preschool teacher Katrina Green says “Drag Queen Story Hour allows preschool children to deepen and complicate their ideas about gender at the exact age when they are often developing rigid ideas about this concept,” according to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

And this is where I get angry. You can tell that Katrina is perfectly aware that she is force-feeding kids Marxist dogma at the very age when they’re most vulnerable. No! Bad Katrina. So let’s take a look at one of the stories these kids are having read to them.

Here’s “Jacob’s New Dress” by Sarah and Ian Hoffman. “Jacob loves playing dress-up, when he can be anything he wants to be,” says the Amazon description. “Some kids at school say he can’t wear “girl” clothes, but Jacob wants to wear a dress to school. Can he convince his parents to let him wear what he wants?”

How about: can he restructure the brains of the rest of society so that they don’t see him as a bit odd? There’s a reason why people used to — I’m not sure if they still do — dress up as the opposite gender for costume parties. When confronted with something unusual, people are going to respond with surprise, skepticism, and even laughter. It’s not because they’re bigots; it’s just because whatever they’re experiencing is out of the norm. I don’t think you can PURGE those natural instincts and do you really want to?

School Freaks Out Over White Hooded…Monk Robe

Published

on

Lower Merion School District, a school system in a pretty wealthy Pennsylvanian county, sent an email to families of high school students after a photo of a student in a white hooded robe raised some eyebrows, according to The American Conservative. The school district said:

“The robe is part of a monk costume from ‘Romeo and Juliet.’ The monk’s costume — along with many other costumes — were to be used by 9th grade English students to act out the Shakespeare play. The photo appears to have been taken as a student was returning to class for a performance.”

The spokeswoman said “As soon as the teacher saw that particular costume, she realized it could be misinterpreted and that its imagery was disturbing. The costume will not be used in future enactments of “Romeo and Juliet.”

Shouldn’t you be trying to make a white hooded robe represent a monk instead of the KKK? I mean, this is almost like shielding the KKK from cultural appropriation. And regardless of your intention, you realize what this unhinged paranoia does, right? It creates a never-ending cycle of trolls who spread fake news about milk, the OK-hand, and Pepe the frog somehow being neo-Nazi dog whistles, just to see the media outrage.

But this isn’t the first time Lower Merion School District has thrown a bit of a hissy fit. Last month, students at the district’s Harriton High School tried to host an event called Mr. Harriton, an annual competition that raises thousands for charity. But the school told students that they would need to change the name to a gender-neutral “Mx. Harriton.”

A few years before that, the district sent parents a consent form that they could sign to allow students to eat an Oreo. Students were apparently going to use the Oreo for a science lab and the teacher sent home a permission slip reading “the students may eat the Oreo after the investigation if this is okay with you. The students do NOT have to eat the Oreo if they do not wish to do so.”

Just a reminder that the craziness doesn’t always start at college.

Teacher Evacuates Class Over MAGA Hat

Published

on

A high school teacher told a student to take off a Make America Great Again, or MAGA, hat.

Apparently wearing a hat and learning are mutually exclusive. Something tells me political diversity wasn’t on the syllabus.

When the student refused to take off the hat, the teacher and other students apparently just left. Now I know some of you might be saying “hold on, Shimshock, how do you know this was political discrimination? The school could’ve just had a dress code that banned hats.” 

The school seems to have a dress code, but the teacher suggested that those rules are pretty flexible. It sounds like the kid would have been fine if he had worn just any old hat. But the teacher said he took it “further by being provocative,” which suggests that it was the specific nature of the hat that triggered both the supposed rule violation and the rest of the class.

Now, as you saw earlier, the young chap with the MAGA hat wasn’t the one who filmed this video. The guy who did film the video has refused to identify the school. His name on YouTube is Frank Sharp, although there are quite a few of those out there. But if you have any info on the school or teacher, feel free to submit a tip to CampusUnmasked.com or just get in touch on Twitter.

Teachers In Trouble For Mexican Border Wall Costume

Published

on

The Middleton School District in Idaho found itself at the center of a media firestorm after its Facebook page hosted one photo appearing to show some employees dressed as the Statue of Liberty, an eagle, etc. holding parts of a border wall with President Trump’s slogan and another photo with employees wearing stereotypical Mexican costumes, according to The New York Times.

Josh Middleton, the district superintendent, said that while he doesn’t think the employees wore the costumes out of malice, he thinks that wearing them showed poor judgment. He said that he was “deeply troubled by the decision by our staff members to wear those costumes that are clearly insensitive and inappropriate….We are better than this….We embrace all students. We have a responsibility to teach and reach all students — period.”

The school placed the employees on paid leave but here’s the thing: people don’t actually know the purpose of the costumes. If we’re lazy leftists, we can just point the finger and cry racism. But first of all, stereotypes, where hyperbole meets pattern recognition, aren’t necessarily racist and second of all, what if the employees WERE acting on their responsibility to teach?

Two parents apparently said that the faculty was holding a costume competition in which teachers dressed as countries and, let’s be honest, the border wall is probably one of the first things that come to mind when you think of Mexico, whether it’s in a positive or negative light, SHEERLY by Trump and the media talking about it so much the past few years.

Oh, and, if a petition to reinstate the teachers is to be believed, no students were actually present during the display of the costumes, according to KTVB.com.
