Plans to teach young New Jersey children about gender identity as a part of sex education classes drew angry criticism as awareness continues to grow over racy material that has been introduced into classrooms by LGBTQ+ activists using their positions to indoctrinate kids with radical “woke” ideology.
Under state education guidelines that will take effect in September, first and second graders will be subjected to training about sexual concepts during discussions about gender identity, in one document entitled “Pink, Blue and Purple,” a 30-minute lesson plan directed at first-grade students is laid out.
“Identity starts with an I. That’s how you can remember it. ‘I’ feel, ‘I’ know. Gender identity is that feeling of knowing your gender,” the document reads. “You might feel like you are a boy, you might feel like you are a girl. you might feel like you’re a boy even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are ‘boy’ parts. And you might feel like you’re a boy or a girl, but you’re a little of both. No matter how you feel, you’re perfectly normal!”
In another document posted online titled “Understanding Our Bodies” that details a 40-minute lesson, second graders are taught about body parts in graphic clinical terms.
“Most girls have a vulva, which is the name for the area between the legs. The vulva describes the whole area including the small hole where urine or pee comes out called the opening to the urethra, the hole below that, which is a little bigger and is called the vagina that is used when a female has a baby, and the hole below that where a bowel movement, or poop, comes out called the anus,” the document reads. “So a person with a vulva has three holes between their legs and a very sensitive little area at the top called the clitoris.”
The lesson plan states that PowerPoint images will be used as visual aids for the kids although it states that they first be shared with a supervisor to “ensure they are acceptable for your use.”
Debate over such sexually explicit material being taught to young and impressionable kids has intensified after the left’s furious reaction to Florida’s parental rights bill prohibiting the sexualizing of kids from kindergarten through third grade by educators, a practice that many have likened to “grooming” and the national attention to the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill has brought overdue scrutiny to what some teachers are up to.
“I am honestly appalled at this curriculum,” Maria DeMaio-Esposito, a mother of two told the Asbury Park Press. ‘I am debating whether to place my child in a private school if I can afford it. Is this curriculum really necessary? Children need to stay children. Their innocence is beautiful and I do not want their little minds filled with this very adult topic.’
Former NJ Governor Chris Christie lashed out, “I think this is just a further indication of the crazy liberal policies of my successor, Phil Murphy, who is in the progressive movement.”
“He’s on the left of the progressive movement, and this kind of stuff just should not be going on,” Christie told Fox News host Brian Kilmeade on his radio show.
Twitter users also expressed outrage over the controversial material set to be taught in the Garden State.
Beyond the glaringly obvious here – the travesty is how many children in NJ cannot read or write at grade level and are woefully behind post covid. Easy prediction: This idiocy make school choice more popular than ever. https://t.co/kO424uny0a

Destroying the innocence of little children isn’t just wrong. It’s evil.

Kids lost 2 years of consistent learning due to draconian lockdowns and masking. Most have fallen way behind in reading and math. Teachers in NJ have to waste even more precious time discussing gender with 7 year olds. Vote these idiots out!@NJGov @GovMurphy

Why is it educators in NJ are so gung ho about teaching 1st and 2nd graders about gender identity when in most cities in NJ 1st and 2nd graders can't read or do basic math?!
Come on NJ, teach the kids to read and write before you try to indoctrinate them!
