WA TEACHER BARS BOYS FROM LEGOS FOR GENDER EQUALITY
« on: May 10, 2018, 08:35:23 AM »
I swear, the left is so nuts, it deserves another forum dedicated to exposing these loons, maybe call it the Maxine Waters Forum?

Kindergarten boys in Washington state are not allowed to play with LEGOs, at least in Ms. Karen Keller’s classroom. The progressive teacher at Captain Johnston Blakely Elementary on Bainbridge Island got the bright idea that girls were not given a fair opportunity to learn how to build and decided the best way to go about offering them the chance was to forbid the activity to the boys.

According to Keller, the children have a 40-minute time slot known as “free choice” where they are allowed to play with whatever toys they’d like. She said the boys gravitate to LEGOs while the girls seek out dolls and crayons.

Keller at first tried to encourage the girl students by purchasing pink LEGOs, but that didn’t work. The girls still sought out their favorite toys and seemed to have no interest in playing with the building blocks. So, the crafty teacher decided to form an all-girls LEGO club where the boys were not allowed to play with their favorite toys. And to make matters worse, the caring teacher who is so interested in protecting and promoting good, healthy interaction and growth with her students, openly admitted she lied to the boys:

“I always tell the boys, ‘You’re going to have a turn’ — and I’m like, ‘Yeah, when hell freezes over’ in my head,” she said. “I tell them, ‘You’ll have a turn’ because I don’t want them to feel bad.”

Keller’s reasoning is certainly flawed. Not only did she elevate one gender over the other, she corrupted free-choice time, practically forcing girls to play with toys they didn’t necessarily care about while forbidding the boys their favorite past-time.

“I had to do the ‘girls only Lego club’ to boost it more,” she explained. “Boys get ongoing practice and girls are shut out of those activities, which just kills me. Until girls get it into their system that building is cool, building is ‘what I want to do’ — I want to protect that.”

So why does she hate boys so much?  That was my first thought.  My second thought is why are you forcing the girls to do (play) with something they are not interested in?   You want equality?  Then allow them to make their own choices whether you (the teacher) thinks it is right or not.

My child - I would be having a one on one with her asking these questions and then removing my child from her classroom.

It's been proven over and over again: boys like to build and break things (Lego) and girls are nurturing (dolls).

There are two different genders for a reason: boys have penis and girls have vagina. That's why they like different things. A boy in a dress is still a boy and a girl not in a dress is still an ugly girl.
First Amendment isn't just Freedom Of Speech, it's Freedom Of Conscience.

Who made you the arbiter of morality? You are not Government but you sure are acting like one.
