‘It has happened again. A library book readily available to minors across Iowa has been flagged for its content by Big Tech.
Nobody would consider Google or Facebook “far-right book burners” or “conservative book banners.” Yet Google and Facebook clearly are not comfortable with the content of the books.
Google flagged images of “Gender Queer” and now “Let’s Talk About It” for containing adult sexual content. Yet librarians, educators and Democrats support these books containing adult sexual content being in libraries. These books are in the “teen” section as well.
Google’s ruling on “Let’s Talk About It” comes even though images from the book were edited by The Iowa Standard.
Facebook restricted another individual’s account for posting photos from the book “Let’s Talk About It” because the photos violate Facebook’s community standards on sexual activity.
So, the obvious question — if these books are too sexual for Google and Facebook, why are they accessible to minors in Iowa libraries?’https://theiowastandard.com/google-flags-lets-talk-about-it-library-book-as-adult-sexual-content/
Boy, am I glad I am old. When I grew up in Iowa none of this Wokeness was around!
‘Parents Defending Education filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court against the Linn-Mar Community School District on Aug. 2. Defendants also include the superintendent and members of the Linn-Mar School Board.
The lawsuit is a result of Linn-Mar’s policy of allowing students to create “gender support plans” without parental knowledge or consent.
The lawsuit says Linn-Mar is “flouting” constitutional guarantees that parents have a constitutional liberty interest in the care, custody and control of their children and that students do not abandon their First Amendment rights at the schoolhouse gate.
The policy allows school officials to work with students as young as seventh grade to create such plans for gender transition without parental involvement. It also forces peers to acknowledge preferred gender identities of classmates.
Per the lawsuit, the district can:
*require all employees and students to address the child by a new name;
*require all employees and students to address the child by a new pronoun;
*have the child’s name changed on numerous government documents, including identification cards, yearbooks and diplomas;
*allow the child to use the restrooms, locker rooms and changing facilities that correspond with the child’s gender identity;
*allow the child to participate in PE classes, intramural sports, clubs and other events that correspond with the child’s gender identity;
*allow the child to room with other students who share the child’s gender identity.
“These actions can happen without any knowledge or input from the child’s parents,” the lawsuit states. “Instead, these decisions will be made solely by the child and ‘school administrators and/or school counselors.’”
The lawsuit states the district will withhold the information even if it is specifically requested by parents.’https://theiowastandard.com/parents-sue-linn-mar-over-secret-gender-support-plans-for-students-as-young-as-seventh-grade/
When school boards promote filth what may one then expect from the students? Garbage in; Garbage out!
‘Waukee Northwest High School has another book containing sexually explicit messaging. The district previously decided to pull “Gender Queer” from the school library due to its vulgar content, which Google calls adult sexual content and Facebook says violates its community standards for sexual activity.
A book called “Flamer” is available at Northwest High School. This book, like “Gender Queer,” is a “graphic novel.”’ The article gives some of what is in these books which should be offensive to any parent but if you desire to see for yourself you may follow this link https://theiowastandard.com/more-filth-waukee-northwest-library-has-sexually-explicit-teen-graphic-novel/
‘A Florida school board cut off a dad’s microphone, saying that the content he was reading was “pornography” as he tried to expose the materials he said were in schools.
The Clay County School District dad, Bruce Friedman, told Fox News Digital, “These books are so vile that reading any excerpt that I captured will end this interview.”
“Somebody failed drastically in their mission to protect children,” said Friedman, the president of Florida’s No Left Turn in Education, a group focused on exposing indoctrination in U.S. public schools. “As soon as I announced that I was going to read from some books that parents… found in the public school libraries that are clearly pornographic, [they] had the mic cut off.”‘https://www.foxnews.com/media/florida-dad-speaks-after-school-board-cut-mic-reading-pornography-books-found-in-district
These people are unsaved and totally NUTS! ‘A Virginia school district will suspend students from fourth grade on up for using the wrong pronouns to designate transgender peers, igniting a fierce backlash from parents during a Thursday school board meeting.
The Fairfax County School Board voted eight to four to approve guidelines that will discipline students who engage in “malicious misgendering,” “malicious deadnaming,” or use a slur based on a classmate’s “gender identity,” “gender expression,” or “sexual orientation.” The board approved the rules as part of next year’s school handbook. Four board members who objected did so for reasons unrelated to the suspension provision, preferring to debate a run-of-the-mill cell phone policy for an hour after fielding heated questions from parents.
The meeting showcased the power liberal school boards wield in America, as the members approved the rules over strenuous objections from parents on constitutional grounds and potentially under threat of lawsuits. While one board member acknowledged the concerns, another board member, Karl Frisch, evaded questions, saying the changes had already been implemented last year, though parents pointed out the school district quietly implemented them during the pandemic. A third, Abrar Omeish, floated the idea of nixing the public question period at the next meeting.
It equally showed parents’ frustration over their lack of influence, and their willingness to pull their children out of public schools due to their ideological drift. In a charged session that stretched late into the evening, many mothers questioned the legality of the new handbook rules as well as their necessity, citing learning loss for their children during the pandemic. One father told the Washington Free Beacon he would withdraw his kids from Fairfax County Public Schools if the “misgendering” rules passed. He mentioned two other parents he knew who had said the same.
Barbara Eckman is a mother of four boys, two of whom are gay. She told the school board she will homeschool her children now to avoid “activist policies” and redress learning gaps, saying she is having to do “the job that Fairfax County couldn’t.”
“I am both a loving mother and an ally to the Pride community,” Eckman said. “The fact that I do not support overwhelming, overreaching activist policies that violate First Amendment rights has nothing to do with how I feel about the gay and transgender community. … I have liberal and conservative friends, and when I discuss your proposed policies—the co-ed family life education and transgender unit in fourth grade, the potential suspensions for misgendering and deadnaming for kids as early as fourth grade—they’re all astonished. So this leads me to one question: Who are you really representing?”
A coalition of parents, conservative grassroots groups, political actors, and one erstwhile Trump administration official rallied before the vote. Many stayed to voice concerns during the open question period, though most left by the time of the vote, expecting unfavorable results. Of the 13 who addressed the school board, 8 rose in opposition to the new handbook.’https://freebeacon.com/campus/tiger-moms-maul-virginia-school-board-over-misgendering-rules/
As a born again Bible believing Christian I see our political system here in Australia and the USA being controlled by that old Serpent, the Devil, which is according to Ephesians 2:2 …the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience. Many of the laws and rules formulated by these politicians in Australia and the USA are anti-God and anti-citizen. Here is one example.
‘The Biden administration announced in May that K-12 schools must allow boys into girls’ bathrooms in order to qualify for federal funds used to pay for school lunches.
The move, which was made by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service, was made based on the interpretation of the prohibition on discrimination based on sex, as detailed in Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, as well as the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008.
As detailed by the USDA, the action is “in line with President Biden’s Executive Order on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation, and is consistent with the Supreme Court’s decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, in which the Court held that the prohibition on sex discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 extends to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.”
In other words, unless schools allow transgender-identifying students to enter the bathrooms of their choosing, schools will be cut off entirely from federal funds and be unable to pay for food served in the cafeteria.
Speaking to the Federalist, a U.S. Department of Education spokesman said that the Biden administration intends to follow the announcement with formal rulemaking in June.
The move has sparked a backlash among conservative organizations, who have condemned the Biden administration for weaponizing progressive politics at the cost of feeding hungry kids.
“It seems to be playing politics with feeding poor kids, which is really unfortunate,” said John Elcesser, executive director of the Indiana Non-Public Education Association in an interview with the Federalist. “Because if a school feels like they cannot participate because it’s in conflict with their mission or values, if a religious exemption is not granted, you’re taking away a program that’s feeding low-income kids.”
As detailed by the publication, the National School Lunch Program fed nearly 30 million kids every school day in around 100,000 public and private schools, and residential care facilities.
Following the implementation of this new policy, establishments that accept food stamps or other federal food funding are required to allow men into women’s private spaces, including showers and sleeping areas.
Additionally, these organizations are to provide training for employees and staff to not “misgender” anyone and use the pronouns of their choice. These organizations are also required to allow male staff to dress as women while working.
The Federalist reported:
“Government schools can receive no exemption. At best, parents and taxpayers can urge school districts to not comply while inevitable lawsuits over the Biden administration’s interpretation work through courts for years.”
“Even if this regulation is ultimately overturned by one means or another, millions of American children will be forced to eat their school lunches with a side of sexual politics.”‘https://www.rebelnews.com/biden_usda_schools_embrace_transgender_deprived_of_food_funds
