Lesbianism Taught at Middle School as Anti-Bullying

Parents at Linden Avenue Middle School of the Red Hook (NY) Central School District are fuming over not being notified in advance that Bard College students with “extensive training” would be teaching their young children about deviant sex and “gender identity,” including forcing girls to kiss each other, all under the guise of a so-called anti-bullying workshop.

At a subsequent meeting with parents, principal Dr. Katie Zahedi claimed the students weren't taught anything that they didn't already know, but said the workshop was necessary because “we do have to protect sexual orientation.”

-- From "8th grade gender workshops ignite furor" by Adam Shanks, Red Hook / Rhinebeck Observer 4/23/13

The school began the program this year in an effort to comply with the 2012 state law called the Dignity for All Students Act. Whether or not this new law, meant to protect students from bullying, requires programs like the one given in Red Hook was the subject of some debate at the meeting.

In the girls class, one parent wrote in a Facebook forum for Red Hook parents, “… they had 2 Bard students come in to talk to just the girls. They [proceeded] to tell them that they can start having sex at their age and there is nothing anyone can do about it, not even their parents.”

In the boys’ class, another parent whose son attended the boys workshop wrote, “Questions were asked about what constitutes girls as sluts, such as what they wear or how many boys they sleep with.”

Part of the program’s purpose, according to LAMS Guidance Counselor Ryan Carney, was to confront gender stereotypes such as “guys never ask for directions,” and for the boys, to tell them “they really can express emotion.”

One of the most contentious issues of the meeting was a page of specific definitions of LGBTQ [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning] that was handed out to the students. One parent commented that she didn’t even know the meaning of “pansexual.” Another pointed out that including the name of the organization ALLY in the title could mean that the school district had an agenda.

Paul Finch, superintendent of the Red Hook Central School District, told the Journal that the workshop focused on improving culture, relationships, communication and self-perceptions. These are issues schools are obligated to address under New York’s Dignity for All Students Act, he noted. Future workshops of a similar nature “may require more notification to parents,” he said.

Bard College spokesman Mark Primoff said the students were volunteers who were invited by the middle school to give a workshop on communication.

Effective in July, the Dignity for All Students Act represents the state’s effort to create a safe and supportive environment, free from discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment and bullying.

“I am furious,” said Mandy Coon, whose daughter was in the class. “I am her parent. Where does anyone get the right to tell her that it’s okay for her to have sex?”

“They also picked two girls to stand in front of the class and pretend they were lesbians on a date,” Coons said.

“I was absolutely furious – really furious,” said the parent of a 13-year-old who asked not to be identified. “They were teaching the boys how to decipher if a girl is a slut.”

The parent told Fox News that boys were also instructed to always have a condom in their wallet.
