Having decreed that God did not invent marriage, our culture has moved on to a new cause célèbre: the claim that neither did God invent gender.
Last week Fairfax County Schools (where I live) is considering a measure to no longer teach that there are two genders, but rather that gender exists on a spectrum, as well as to move the curriculum out of the science department and into the health department so that parents can no longer opt their students out. This all follows their vote a few weeks ago to allow cross-dressing teachers and essentially end gender segregated bathrooms.
By the way, Fairfax is one of the ten largest public school districts in the US.
This sort of vote is becoming more common, and legally enshrines all manner of gender nonsense. A school in Washington State (Evergreen State College) has a 46-year-old male enrolled in class there, but who spends much of his time in the women’s locker rooms. A few years ago he decided to “identify” as a woman, and start using the women’s locker room, which the school also shares with a nearby day school and local swim clubs. When grade school students began to complain about seeing an adult male walking around nude, the school said that they had no choice but to allow the student to use the women’s locker room. Had they intervened, they would have risked violating the Washington State Constitution, which bans discrimination based on gender.
