You sure you want to move to Canada even if Donald Trump is elected President? Because it is not much better in Canada, and quite frankly, much worse. The Alberta Teachers’ Association (ATA), Alberta’s teachers’ union, has released a 150-page document called “Prism Toolkit for Safe and Caring Discussions.” It aims to assist teachers in creating LGBTQ-inclusive classrooms and curricula, according to CBC news.
The toolkit recommends an activity titled “Drag 101” for cosmetology and drama students, in which local drag queens would be invited to schools to teach makeup techniques and organize drag performances for the school.In another activity titled “Gender Swap”, students would be asked to “select a piece of writing that is typically strongly associated with a particular gender, but one that is not the gender they identify with” and “perform their selected piece”.
Do any schools teach, reading, writing and arithmetic any longer? It seems the system is more concerned with “feelings” then the more important things. And then this takes the cake, Rather than relying on the traditional terms such “boys” and “girls,” the toolkit suggests using other terms like friends, folks, or “comrades”. Yes, the magic word associated with the old Soviet Union. I can assume 20th century history is not taught, because if it was the word comrade would not be in any westerner’s vocabulary. What do you think?
