TRENTON, NJ – After Governor Phil Murphy’s Department of Education were caught with their hands in the progressive cookie jar of gender education and indoctrination in the public school system, Murphy now says he’s willing to talk about it a little.
New Jersey just had a gender education reveal party, and it’s not a boy or girl. It’s a major problem for Democrats in the upcoming election.
After being blindsided by a Fox News report outing the state’s 2nd and 3rd-grade gender studies, which the right has labeled gender indoctrination, an avalanche of bad press followed. Parents across the state woke up to the woke agenda and voiced their opposition.
Murphy now says those parents should be heard after defending the importance of gender education in the public school curriculum.
“I think there’s some sort of sense that parents have no say, and I would just say emphatically that parents deserve absolutely to have a say in this sort of stuff – Along with all other interested parties, but probably none are more interested than parents,” Murphy said when pressed by reporters.
Murphy will also work to make sure the ill-timed gender curriculum reveal fiasco doesn’t become a political flashpoint in the upcoming midterm elections.
“I don’t like the fact that some are using this as an opportunity to score political points and to further divide us,” Murphy said. “I say that on behalf of the LGBTQIA+ communities. Let’s everybody not use this to divide us.”
Under the proposed curriculum, teachers will tell students, “
“Gender identity is that feeling of knowing your gender. You might feel like you are a boy, you might feel like you are a girl,” the lesson plan states. “You might feel like you’re a boy even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are ‘girl’ parts. You might feel like you’re a girl even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are ‘boy’ parts.”
Murphy did not say how or when he will take input from parents across New Jersey to possibly modify the curriculum.
