SCOOP: Portland Public Schools is now teaching elementary school students to subvert the sexuality of “white colonizers,” acknowledge that girls can have penises, and begin experimenting with “ze/zir” pronouns and exploring “the infinite gender spectrum.” Here's the story. ?

The new curriculum translates the principles of academic queer theory into K-12 pedagogy. The premise is simple: privileged heterosexual “white colonizers” have created an oppressive “gender binary” in order to exploit racial and sexual minorities.

Beginning in kindergarten, teaches give anatomy lessons with graphic drawings of children’s genitalia. The lessons refer to “person with a penis” and “person with a vulva,” because some girls have penises and some boys have vulvas. “Any gender and kid can have any type of body.”

In first and second grade, students are introduced to basic queer theory. “Many people think there are only two genders, girls and boys, but this is not true. There are many ways to be a boy, a girl, both or neither. Gender identity is about how you feel about yourself inside.”

Teachers tell students they can “change their name to match who they are, like their gender, culture, or just what they like better.” They can adopt synthetic sexual identities and experiment with “they/them” and “ze/zir” pronouns. “Only you can know what your gender is.”

In third through fifth grade, it’s pure queer theory. “The culture, systems, and assumptions that everyone is straight and cis is called cisheteronormativity.” This system is a form of “oppression” designed to benefit “white straight cis boys” and to punish “LGBTQIA2S+” people.

Teachers are encouraged to eliminate the terms “girls and boys,” “ladies and gentlemen,” “mom and dad,” “Mrs. Mr., Miss,” and “boyfriend, girlfriend,” and make sure to include information about how to “pause puberty” and use “hormones and/or surgeries.”

By the end of fifth grade, the curriculum explicitly asks students to become political activists make a “commitment to change,” according to the dictates of queer theory. Students receive a list of six commitments:
