My kids’ school is teaching them to be ‘progressive’ feminists.

Public education and a national curriculum are failing our kids. The following propaganda piece was emailed to parents from my local high school this week:

“YEAR 12 MODERN HISTORY – STUDIES OF CHANGE – FIRST WOMEN’S MOVEMENT IN GREAT BRITAIN

Our Year 12 Modern History class has been studying First Wave Feminism in Britain for Term 1.

They are investigating the origins of the movement, the status of women up to the 19th century, the emergence of the suffrage movement, and notable suffragettes and the way in which Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) leader, Emmeline Pankhurst, and suffragettes carried out peaceful protests, demonstrations, civil disobedience campaigns and controversial militant action to achieve suffrage (the right to vote) for women throughout Britain.

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated around the world on the 8th March and is a day to reflect on the sacrifices women, and men alike, have made to enfranchise women.

Our Year 12 students will also take time this week to reflect on the women’s movement and how far we still have to go to achieve gender equality.”

Are you serious? A whole term of senior high school history education dedicated to feminism? How is that not just a single hour as part of a broad survey of significant political developments over recent centuries?

Sure, women’s suffrage is an objectively important milestone in the pursuit of equality for all, but why the enormous leap from observation of historical movements to participation in contemporary contentions?

I emailed back to the school, copying in my local Liberal Party federal MP and the Liberal federal Minister for Education.

“Thank you for your newsletter, including the notice of the political propaganda you’re teaching in a publicly funded school. I’m sure in the minds of many this is not controversial and may have slipped by unnoticed, but that may be evidence more of groupthink than academic rigour.

I quote, “Our Year 12 students will also take time this week to reflect on the women’s movement and how far we still have to go to achieve gender equality. “

In subscribing to the ‘progressive’ narratives of “gender equality”, I wonder how sincerely those teaching this political opinion have considered the criticism of their position.

For example, can you cite any Australian law or public policy which unjustly treats either gender as ‘less than’ the other? I will fight beside you to change that.

Do you advocate for equality of outcomes in combat deaths, workplace deaths, homicides, suicides, homelessness or incarceration? Is invariable, universal equality of outcomes really what you’re wanting to teach impressionable minds to promote?

Check your White male privilege boys

Are you equally celebrating men in any way? Is your presumed public indifference on equality for men conspicuous by its absence?

What message does that send to the young men and women you’re charged with educating?

I suggest you stick to the facts of history and not the subjective ideologies you prefer which may or may not have the intellectually honest foundations every sincere educator should value above all. After all, we are teaching our children how to think, not what to think… aren’t we?

Putting the “Fun” into Fundamentalist Marxist/Leninist dogma

For the record, my philosophy is to oppose all injustice where I encounter it, not just favouring one gender or ethnicity, or excluding any. I celebrate equality under the law for both genders and all ethnicities.

I am, however, concerned by the school’s public and transparent subscription to a partisan narrative as a government funded school.

If you can’t see the inherent problems and potential for abuse of power in this scenario, then further study of history may be required.

I look forward to the Principal’s response and assurances that ‘progressive’, feminist narratives will no longer be taught as unquestionable fact.

Either than, or else a reasoned explanation why our children should continue to be indoctrinated.”

Feminism hasn’t been relevant since women got the vote and equal pay under law. It has struggled for purpose and relevance ever since.

It has morphed into a toxic struggle not for justice, but power. It is wilfully ignorant & dismissive, if not derisive, of the injustices suffered by men, especially when women are the powerful perpetrators.

While 82% to 85% of Americans believe in social, political and economic equality of the sexes only 18% to 20% are willing to call themselves feminists.

You can define feminism however you want in theory, but the evidence suggests that nobody believes it is only about the struggle for “equality” any more.

Equality before the law has been achieved, and now those desperate for something to be angry about demand more. They make unreasonable demands seeking equality of outcomes.

Yes! We are all individuals.

Actress Michelle Williams is a great example. She is whining about not being paid as much as Mark Wahlberg, claiming her work is equal to his – a ridiculous claim uncritically repeated by the leftist media complex.

The pay you can demand from an employer is not a statement of your personal value or even compensation for time away from your family, but a reflection of the economic benefit you can bring them.

An athlete is not worth more to the community than a childcare worker, but an athlete can help sell 50,000 expensive tickets.

White male Wahlberg is not worth more than oppressed female Williams as a person, but the name Wahlberg on a movie poster can help sell a whole lot more movie tickets.

It is materially relevant that the actor’s worth isn’t just their acting performance. It is their ability to attract ticket sales.

Movies featuring Wahlberg have grossed a total of $6.44 billion while movies featuring Williams have grossed a total of $2.74 billion.

Wahlberg was ranked number 7 amongst the highest grossing domestic box office stars in 2014. He was ranked number 5 in 2015, 13 in 2016 and 4 in 2017 when this film was made.

Williams wasn’t even ranked in the top 100 until 2017 when she debuted at 98. To say both actors had the same value to the studio, and should therefore have the same pay, is just plain ignorance.

This ignorance is what the public education system is now peddling as indisputable. This failure is impossible to escape though, because there is no competition between the states to see who can produce the best education outcomes.

All that matters, apparently, is that the outcomes are seen to be equal, not matter how miserable they may be.

No offence Mum.

The UK Has Left the EU. Did Anyone Notice? A legal challenge has been mounted against Theresa May’s extension of article 50, which determines the date of Brexit. The new date, set at April 12, has no legal validity, because it is not supported by the required Act of Parliament. Therefore the original leaving date of March 29 stands, and the UK has departed from the EU, without a deal. This development has already made it into the MSM. The Daily Mail was the first newspaper to pick up on this story, and the Express followed. http://tapnewswire.com/2019/04/tilbrooks-legal-challenge-hits-main-media-first-off-the-blocks-the-mail-online There are other… Read more »

UPS is now partnering with Merck to deliver vaccines to your home, then inject you with those vaccines in your own living room.

Ahhhh, edumacation! Way back when I began my career as a primary school teacher, 60% of NSW public primary school teachers were male. A few decades later the tide had turned along with the push for “equality”, and 6% were male. There was a push for more women in promotion positions too. After a few years in the system I applied for promotion and was told I was wasting my time, not because I wasn’t capable but because the available positions in the inspectorate had to be filled by women. I didn’t apply again. I watched as women lied, prostituted… Read more »

She was “only thinking of me,” she said, and suggested that I go down to the Senior Center and hang out with the folks. I did this and when I got home last night, I decided to play a prank on her.

Been a bit of a struggle, but finally got access to PP. I’m rapidly coming to the conclusion that it’s an anti social act to be classed as a white heterosexual male. Some time ago, our Academic Teaching staff was infiltrated (with a large help from the Unions) by Teachers and Tutors with definite Socialist and Non Gender preferences. The result of this infiltration is that students are being brainwashed by those who we trust to educate our young and we are becoming a Nation of soft cock wishy washy sooks.

We covered this subject in the 1950s in primary school in one lesson and the study was confined to the movement in England.. Last year of primary by memory. It didn’t feature as an exam question that year but the abolition of child slavery (hah! yet to be achieved) did. Nothing I have learned since about the movement, mainly through reading and watching fiction, has changed one variant of the facts taught, or, if the fiction was different, research showed it was wrong.

No wonder our children are not ‘life ready’ when they leave school.

Janice Atkinson interviews Brexiteers who were protesting the United Kingdom’s refusal to leave the European Union on time. One man said that the crowd was there to “stand for England” and her culture. That same day, UKIP leader Gerard Batten told the protesters to expect more betrayals from May’s government, and Tommy Robinson screened his documentary about fake news, Panodrama, for the crowd.

From the Friday Funnies : When one tries to “reason” with a lefty democrat, remember you are dealing with a person that believes that a man can be a woman and a woman can be a man and that such a delusion should be encouraged, not discouraged. Discouragement of the delusion is considered immoral and bigoted. Thus our society has unnecessary dilemmas concerning bathrooms, athletic competition at all levels, and “pronoun” controversies subjecting ourselves to all manner of laws, rules, regulation and more needless government control. Here is a suggestion to break the left’s ridiculous gender ideology and denial of… Read more »

British Govt Gives More Away in Foreign Aid than It Spends on Police

The British government is giving away more money through the foreign aid budget than it is spending on police forces, despite the violent crime wave gripping the country.

Crime in the capital city of London, under the mayoralty of Labour’s Sadiq Khan, appears to be particularly out of hand, with homicides at a 10-year high and particularly striking issues with knife crime and moped-enabled crime, as well as once rare and shocking incidents such as acid and machete attacks.

Feminism is destructive, evil, rips up the cohesive fabric of advanced societies and should never be taught as a struggle for equality subject to students. If ever taught, its should be portrayed as a negative force that undermines everything that makes great nations and peoples.

FEMINISM —- Feminism is a false strategy that was introduced into this world by the dark side. It pretends to be a rescue of women from abuse by men. It isn’t. It is dark power, disguised as enlightenment, disguised as the way forward for women. It is a destructive movement. Feminism has no love. Nothing good can grow without love. Feminism grows nothing, it turns women foolish enough to adopt it cold. It turns normal women into destructive women. Feminism tramples men into the dirt. It heals nothing. It rectifies nothing. It is dark. It is an enemy of all… Read more »

The Sky Fell last month, but almost nobody noticed. The sky fell on Hawaii last month, all because carbon dioxide levels peeped above the much-hyped 400 ppm hurdle. Chicken Littles all over the world squawked into their friendly media megaphones about numerous imminent global warming disasters. One warned: “the fate of the world hangs in the balance.” (Similar alarms were rung when the 350 ppm level was passed). But nobody else noticed anything scary. Four pieces of well-established evidence say that 400 ppm of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is not a concern. Firstly, there has been no increase in… Read more »

Is there a theme brewing? ‘Is There Anybody Out There?’ for the next article pleading for a politician willing to put law and order above PC and virtue signalling.

All alone, or in two’s
The ones who really love you

Some hand in hand

The bleeding hearts and the artists
Make their stand

Some stagger and fall, after all it’s not easy

On Friday, a jury of seven men and five women found Curran guilty of seven charges and not guilty of two charges after deliberating for almost two days. The Crown applied for Curran to be remanded in custody ahead of his sentencing, but he will remain on bail after his barrister argued Curran needs time to “get his affairs in order”.
