Middle School Assignment Asks Kids To Calculate Their ‘Privilege’
Ah, privilege – that magical unicorn fart theory that the Cult of Social Justice concocted in order to shut up people who belong to the census box categories that they don’t like. I’m actually surprised that it’s taken us this long to hear about a school assignment where a teacher forces students to categorize themselves into “The Groups That Progressives Think Should Roll Over And Die Already.”
According to this, a Spanish teacher at Monroe Middle School in Tampa, Florida gave this assignment to seventh-grade students wherein they had to circle the categories that they belong to. Things like race and gender were covered, but it also included religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, and disability. Which, quite frankly, is NONE of the teacher’s blankety-blank business!
Leaving aside that this has NOTHING to do with learning Spanish (since when has subject-relevancy stopped liberals from being bigots?), do twelve-year-olds even KNOW what all these Cult of Social Justice terms mean? The student whose mother posted this to Facebook obviously had to ask what “Cisgender” and all that other bullcrap was and take notes in the margins…. read more here

It’s really sad that parents now, in addition to all the safety lectures, have to teach their children how to recognize when their teacher or an assignment is asking them to reveal personal information that is none of the school’s business. How on earth does it help kids or society? No one should feel guilty for the way they were born or raised. The message being sent by surveys and assignments like these still implies that there is some segment of society that is “less than”, and it worsens relationships between people when there is this mass hysteria to point out all of those who are “less than”. In my mind it’s like sitting on a park bench with your child and making a big scene by pointing to every person that walks by who is a little different. “Look Johnny, there’s a black person… see, see, see!! And look Johnny, there’s a person in a wheel chair… see, see, see! and Look Johnny, there’s a homeless person, see, see, see!” All of those supposedly “less-than” people may be living a life that they like just fine, but now they are being put under a magnifying glass and being told that their life isn’t good enough because it’s not like these “privileged” people over here. Instead of spending all this effort to get the “privileged” people to “see” the “less than” people, simply offer the “less-than” people options to be all they can be without trying to put a guilt trip on the “privileged” people just because of the way they were born or the circumstances they were raised in.
