Is saddens me that the shibboleth that gender can be taught or proselytized is still so prevalent. I recently had a conversation with a seemingly perfectly reasonable and educated person, during which she objected to her daughter “being forced” to wear pride colors for school. That her daughter was being “indoctrinated” into a lifestyle. I was horrified. I tried to explain to her there was no forcing of anything, that the only intention of pride day was to teach tolerance, and to fight prejudice… what children SHOULD be taught at a young age. She didn’t get it… her religion teaches that we are an abomination. So so sad… we have lots of work to do for sure.
