‘Gender Bender Day’ at school

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Girls dress as boys and boys dress as girls. Gender switching is what a group of young school children are learning at one Milwaukee school, to the dismay of at least one parent. Despite the complaints, the event will go on as planned – although it did get a slight name change. Glenn had the story on radio today.

“I want to leave you with a story this hour of Deidri Hernandez,” Glenn said. “She has a 7‑year‑old son she’s not sending to school today. She has a 7‑year‑old son that goes to Tippecanoe School For the Arts and Humanities.”

He continued, “They are holding their Switch It Up Day. Now, this was originally billed as Gender Bender Day, but Tippecanoe officials made the name change after they called the principal. She said, ‘I don’t have a problem with the title; I have a problem with the activity.’ She says, ‘it’s ridiculous and creepy to ask elementary boys to come dressed as girls and girls to come dressed as boys. Having the students dressed as transvestites is not what I’m sending my child to school for.'”

“But apparently in Milwaukee, it is, according to school officials,” Glenn said.

“Switch It Up Day. They changed the name. It’s no longer Gender Bender. It’s Switch It Up Day,” he said.

    Interesting, because I do clearly remember Mr. Beck making the comment on the Bill O’Reilly show back in August 2010  “If it doesn’t break my leg nor pick my pocket, then what difference is it to me?” in regards to Gay “marriage”.   Perhaps his opinion has changed??? 

    Glenn Beck also, on that show, stated that he did not devote much time to discussing abortion because he did not think it was that important in relation to other issues.  Interestingly, earlier this week I finally did hear Glenn speaking very strongly against abortion.  I pray for Mr. Beck to continue to wake up and cover in depth the moral issues that are leading to the inevitable upcoming breakdown of Western Civilization.

    Faith and the Family are the true core and foundation of our country.  Mary Eberstadt in her new book “How the West Really Lost God” makes the case that Faith and Family form a double helix that is the foundation of Western Civ.  As this double helix becomes unraveled, so does civil and moral society.

       So, you need to criticize before you make a point? By criticizing you lost the chance to make a very valid point. I don’t understand, did it make you feel good? You are no better than the “politically correct” masses.
      Not a good example when you are trying to make a cause for Faith and Family. I believe Glen has a big leap on you with that topic!

    If this activity was just for fun, and voluntary, like dressing up for Halloween, I see no harm. However with the original theme of “Gender Bender” I do question the motive behind this activity.

    Kids have a difficult time as it is growing-up normally in today’s society. They sure don’t need weirdos influencing them with perverted ideas.

    Good for you, Deidri Hernandez, for standing up to this liberal indoctrination!

      I put Halloween (witchcraft) into the same basket as Gender Bender, because they are both immoral to God according to His Word. The reason for this immorality cropping up in our North American education system (USA & Canada) is that we’ve traded the Ten Commandments off for the 10 planks of the communnist manifesto. The school act is the result of the 10th plank of the Communist manifesto. We need to realize where the truth of these matters lie behind this kind of perversion. The people of our Western Nations have been deceived by the control-mongering Pharisees (Religious & Political) of the NWO. http://corniebanman.com

         halloween is about free candy.  if God doesn’t like free candy then I’d rather chill with the Devil

          I feel sorry for you. it is a fact of history that halloween is presently celebrated by people involved in various types of witchcraft and dates back to origins in Celtic and druid occultic practices of western Europe in millenia(s) past. good luck with the chillin like a villian thing.

    For your 3 sins and 4, I condemn you.  You have practiced human sacrifice with abandon and called it choice.  You have practiced all manner sexual promiscuity and called it liberation.  You have turned my holy Name into a profanity.  You have rejected a day to rest and reflect that I gave to you for your good.  You have belittled the wise and exalted the foolish.

    You have turned on me and on one another.  I will hand you over to one more violent and vile than yourself.  The muslims will rule over you and eat the fat of your land and humiliate you.  They will rape your wives and daughters, making them fit for their harems.  They will castrate your sons and turn them into jihadis.  Your bodies will be piled to the heavens and buried in mass graves.

    Return to Me and be healed, says the Lord.

    This is just stupid. What is the point with this? This is what liberalism looks like. Instead of teaching little Timmy how to read they are teaching him to wear a dress and we wonder why our school system is so screwed up.

      if you don’t teach children how to read and write then you can control them! the li beral socialist agenda! and when I mentioned uniforms for children to concentrate on learning instead of clothes to the school the board said it was up to the PTA and it was the PTA that wants the name brand clothes! they do not teach the teachers anything anymore. my son knew more than the staff…twelve years of kindergarten. the teachers didn’t even know atlas shrugged or citizen kane…my son taught himself like Glenn

        I came from a good school that was run by good people. You only get that out here in the boonies but it sure beats the other stupidity of big towns and city schools where they care more about liberal propaganda instead of the truth math reading and history.

      it wasn’t some liberal lesson, it was optional fun and goofy school spirit thing chosen by the student council.

      • Anonymous

        they can claok it in whatever they want, sir. but, the truth remains. the lesson involved girls and boys dressing in the opposite gender’s garb. it’s stupid if not purposely damaging to the innocent youngsters. A Bible verse you may be familiar with states, “man justifies his sin”. it was fun/goofy sure… but why? what is the end game here?

        • Anonymous

          is there an end game to wacky wednesday too? cause this is really just a more specific version.
          it was not a lesson, it was a theme for fun for a day that was optional for the students to participate in or not.

    This makes me so glad we chose to send our son to private, church affiliated schools.  It is shameful and disgusting how the “educational” establishment have experimented on our children over the last few decades.   Then we wonder why school children in many districts graduate without being able to even read at grade level.  The system is broken.

    If it were middle high school, I could see it, possibly if it was intended to be “over the top”. We had a Sadie Hawkins dance where girls asked the guys to go, the girls were the ones who asked the guy to dance, etc.  Everyone wore flannel shirts and jeans or overalls (years before grunge made them the norm).  This dance was held after the annual powder puff football game between senior girls and junior girls.  The guys dress up as cheerleaders, all in good fun.  But somehow I don’t see this as being the case.

    I see this nonsense by the school and the teacher behind it as a covert way of teaching children that it’s OK to be something you are not meant to be, like being homosexual. There is a sinister motive behind this liberal crap. I see home schooling as being more relevant in light of this progressive nonsense.

    Of course you didn’t mention that this event was created/chosen by the students within the STUDENT COUNCIL, and that it was completely optional…

    • George Jackson

      Where did you hear that?  Is there a link to some sort of statement from the school explaining that?  Did local news do a story on it?

      I’m genuinely curious, because it seems like something only someone in direct contact with the school would know.

    If this were happening to my grand-daughters, they would not be attending school that day, and probably not the next school year. At their ages — 13, 11, 9, — and opinion of boys is “Ewww” and I’m sure it is the same of boys toward girls at the same age.  This attempt to be PC is truly disgusting.

    And all the dumbAss parents will still send their kids to school… same old story. Your kids are being indoctrinated and dumbed-down because you have, and continue to allow it.

    This will cease if parents simply keep their child home (or at a friend’s) when this happens.  The school administration/teachers are far more intent on getting their $$$ than on this gender bender agenda. 
    Each day your child does not go to school, the school receives just under $ 10 (perhaps more now) from the federal government.  Keep ’em home and hit them in the pocketbook.

    Cmon! We tell an 18 yr old girl to not have sex with a 14 yr old girl, because of the age issue? What about the age issue for Boy Scouts, I dont care if they are gay or straight, they shouldn’t be having underage sex in the first place, so there is no room to be “openly gay”, they should be “openly virgin”! (at least theoretically, I know kids will screw around but it cant be publically accepted). In a school, there is no room for “transvetite” day, it confuses our children! Would we teach religion and evolution at the same time? No it confuses our children, Schools need to promote science, math, reading and writing, physical activity, foreign languages, ect, but religion and sexual orientation is something that must be promoted at home, NOT SCHOOL. The question is not if its ok or not to talk about gays in school, or transvestits, its a question of “what do our children learn from this”? If we cant teach religion in school, fine, cant wear a cross on school property, fine, but you cant speak or demonstrate your sexual tendancies on school property either! Its like this, if the principal of a school is gay, should he show up to work in a dress? No, his sexual orientation should remain personnal when on school property. Same thing abides to our children.

    This “Gender Bender” behaviour is Very Strong in the USA. I don’t remember this in the USA when I was there.

    it was a school spirit type week activity.  dress up and look goofy, chosen by the student council.  not entirely uncommon.
    it was optional and almost none of the kids did it anyway.

  • Anonymous

    The opposite sex is offensive to 7 to 9 year olds.  They are “icky” and to force them to dress as “icky” people is abusive, not to mention stupid and dangerous.  Fire these people.

    I understand why some students and parents may object to Switch it Up day.  But the theme seems to be just silly and not any sexual or political statement.  Bugs Bunny dressed in drag a lot and people just thought it was funny.  Acting and improvisation is healthy and the story doesn’t imply that this one-day theme is in lieu of academics.  The theme is probably not a good idea anyway since it would make some kids uncomfortable.

    liberals hate men.  they are trying to make sure none of the little boys grow up to be real men – just a bunch of panty wastes they can control and push around.  all real men are despised in the land of the liberal but none more so than the white man.  to them he must be taken out and turned into a hairless nelly who wears skinny jeans and shakes his ass.

  • michele gildroy

    When I went to school, I was not allowed to wear pants because the was part of the male attire. Now days, if you see woman or girl in a skirt or a dress it is very seldom. Why is it we can wear pants just like the boys and we very seldom are frowned on? Put a boy in a skirt and all h— breaks out. Let boys and girls wear what they want and start teaching.
