Every day I read stories about liberal brainwashing and mentally ill social justice warriors, and every day I ask myself it will get any worse. Well, folks, it just got worse…a lot worse.
A kindergarten teacher at Captain Johnston Blakely Elementary has recently banned male students from playing with Lego’s, in order to “fight gender stereotypes,” and give women an advantage in STEM fields.
According to the Bainbridge Island Review:
“In Karen Keller’s kindergarten classroom, boys can’t play with Legos.”
“They can have their pick of Tinkertoys and marble tracks, but the colorful bricks are ‘girls only.’ ”
“I always tell the boys, ‘You’re going to have a turn’ — and I’m like, ‘Yeah, when hell freezes over’ in my head,” she said. “I tell them, ‘You’ll have a turn’ because I don’t want them to feel bad.”
“Although her approach might anger some parents, Keller is sticking to her guns: It’s all part of a plan to get girls building during ‘free choice,’ the 40 minutes of unstructured play time embedded at the end of every school day.”
Right off the bat, Karen Keller is advocating for “free choice,” but only for girls. She claims she’s doing this for the sake of “equality,” but it certainly doesn’t sound like equality to me. She claims that for years, her “boy students flocked to the building blocks while her girl students played with dolls and crayons and staples.”
So, in other words, the boys wanted to build things, which boys normally do, and the girls wanted to play with dolls and color, like they usually do—what’s wrong with this? There’s deeply ingrained biological differences between boys and girls, but apparently this California State educated teacher can’t wrap her head around this.
“Further, female STEM role models are few and far between, and part of the reason for their underrepresentation, Keller believes, are the gender stereotypes women are socialized into from an early age.”
“She faults toymakers for reinforcing those roles — “the stuff LEGO is marketing for girls is just so limiting;” ‘girl’ sets replete with themes such as baking, cooking, care-giving, homemaking, decorating and hair styling — but she also faults teachers for not taking action.”
“ ‘I just feel like we are still so far behind in promoting gender equity,’ Keller explained.”
“Which is what led Keller to her classroom experiment.”
“If girls were given the opportunity, would they develop different play preferences? She thought so, and she could cite a study or two to back the claim up.”
Of course it’s the toymakers fault, right? It couldn’t possibly be that boys and girls just want to play with different toys, could it? These liberal lunatics are so high up in their ivory towers that they can’t even see reality anymore.
In addition to this, Karen Keller has also just bought a new 1,907 piece Lego set…and she’s refusing to let the boys play with it.
“ ‘I had to do the ‘girls only Lego club’ to boost it more,’ she explained. ‘Boys get ongoing practice and girls are shut out of those activities, which just kills me. Until girls get it into their system that building is cool, building is ‘what I want to do’ — I want to protect that.’ ”
This teacher is an incredibly selfish, arrogant social justice warrior, who’s using her class of innocent children as a damn social laboratory. Enough is enough!
