Any parent of a boy will find this story — rightfully — absolutely infuriating. CBS in Seattle reports:
A kindergarten teacher in Washington state is banning the use of Legos among her male students in the name of “gender equity.”
Bainbridge Island Review reports that Captain Johnston Blakely Elementary teacher Karen Keller doesn’t allow male students to play with the blocks in order to encourage use among females. She even makes up excuses sometimes to set her agenda in order.
“I always tell the boys, ‘You’re going to have a turn’ — and I’m like, ‘Yeah, when hell freezes over’ in my head,” Keller told the Bainbridge Island Review. “I tell them, ‘You’ll have a turn’ because I don’t want them to feel bad.”
Keller explains that she does this, denying children the toys they want to play with in order to fit some warped sense of justice, because boys were playing with blocks and girls were playing with dolls. Despite the fact that more girls than boys attend college, that’s not enough for feminists like Keller, who insist on total gender equality. Men and women weren’t created the same, despite that, liberals seem to believe gender is just a “social construct” instead of a biological reality.
What is even more frightening than Keller’s denial of toys to small children in order to fit her political beliefs is the fact that her bosses have backed her up. The Washington Examiner published an update to their story on the teacher with comments from the school district. She wrote:
Blakely Elementary Principal Reese Ande said the school does not “promote access or opportunity through any forms of exclusion” and that Keller is “a passionate teacher who cares deeply for each and every one of her students.”
Keller also stated that she “only” denies blocks to male students the first month of school and that her “when hell freezes over” remark was off-the-cuff and not meant for print. Mothers and fathers of sons in Keller’s classroom must be wondering what else Keller thinks and how many other ways she allows her politics infect how she teaches.
