“Parents and their children don’t have to believe differently or agree with what is being taught. You can still have your personal beliefs but in the schools, we expect people to be respectful of each other and this is one of the ways we have that conversation,” Juchems said.
“It is our primary responsibility to provide a safe and nurturing environment for all of our students.”
Really? That’s the primary responsibility, not teaching academic skills? I’d say Madison schools’ see their primary responsibility as indoctrination.
1.6 percent of Americans identify as gay or lesbian, and 0.3 of those identify as transgender, but what about another confused segment of the population, “otherkins”, who believe themselves to be descendants of elves, stars, or animals? Do Wisconsin’s public schools recognize their responsibility to provide a safe space for these people? Does that include recognizing their need to have sex with animals, as the “furry” sub-division insists on?
And what about the “plushies”, a sub-sub division of the furries, who get off on sex with stuffed toys? Must kindergartner plushies be given a private room in which to express their natural sexual self?
In Madison, sure. Maybe not yet in the rest of the country.
