(StraightNews.org) – A school district in Oregon is teaching kids about “meta genders” and “demiromantics,” among other radical ideas. In a new curriculum aimed at tenth graders, Hillsboro School District is explaining concepts such as “romantic orientation” and “neutral” pronouns, including “ze/zir.”
Documents distributed to schools as teaching guides emphasize the need for students to be able to identify “at least three gender identities” and to respond to questions such as “How do gender stereotypes affect behavior?” It states matter-of-factly that “gender is a cultural construction” and that biology is irrelevant in relation to pronouns, or language more broadly.
It furthermore promotes the notion that a person can be neither male nor female and uses terms such as “cisgender,” “non-binary,” and “meta gender.” The latter apparently refers to a person who is neither cisgender or transgender. It is unclear how this is distinguished from “non-binary,” which has a similar definition.
Oregon is one of the more “progressive” states where gender ideology is concerned. In 2022, the Democrat-dominated legislature introduced a statewide ordinance that required schools to place tampon machines in male toilets. In one high school, the boys hit back and began pulling the machines out of their facilities.
In a photo posted on social media, the boys had taken the dispenser and placed it down the toilet; a move met with applause by many fellow users on various platforms. School officials subsequently sent an email to pupils accusing them of vandalism. “Each time that the dispensers are taken down, the school needs to spend time and resources putting them back up in order to be compliant with House Bill 3294,” the email stated.
Lawmakers passed House Bill 3294, or the Menstrual Dignity Act, in 2021. The legislation was described as necessary to promote and protect privacy, autonomy, personal safety, and inclusivity. “Menstrual Dignity for Students means that all menstruating students, regardless of gender, age, ability, socioeconomic status have the opportunity for safe, dignified self-care,” it declares.
