FOX NEWS – Admiral Levine, assistant secretary for health for the Department of Health and Human Services, praised an Alaska gender clinic which promoted revisionist ideas about biological sex, including eliminating the word mother from K-12 science classes.
Levine visited the Identity Alaska on August 6, stating, “These inspiring people work tirelessly to create a more equitable future, where all those living in the U.S. have equal access to lifesaving medical care.”
Identity Alaska actively promotes radical ideas about biological sex in its resources section called “gender-inclusive biology.”
The gender-inclusive biology curriculum – catered for science teachers – recommended “child-friendly definitions” of terms relating to gender and sexuality.
It said kids as young as kindergarten should learn about how doctors “assign” the gender to babies by making a “guess” and also included guidance on how to speak to the age group about sexual attraction.
It recommended teachers inform students about “using accurate language for body parts and functions without assuming that there are only two sexes and that everyone within a particular sex is the same. It’s important to be able to communicate about our bodies in accurate ways.”
Instead of saying, “when the mom gives birth,” the terms should be “when the baby exists the womb.”
Similarly, a child shouldn’t be told they have genes from their mom and dad. Instead, it should be phrased as, “You received a mix of genes from sperm and egg.”
The gender-inclusive curriculum goes so far as to recommend avoiding the biological sex terms – male and female, including when referring to hormones produced.
Instead of “male hormones” and “female hormones,” the correct terminology would be using the terms “testosterone or estrogen,” according to the guidelines. Likewise, “male reproductive organs” should be spiked and with only “penis and testicles.”
The correct terminology for men and women is also “those with ovaries” and “those with testicles” … READ MORE.
