Out to Pasture, Gender Unicorn — the University of Arkansas Serves Sweeter Sex Ed

Run, run, fast as you can — it’s hard to keep up with the culture.

Case in point: Just as you’ve adjusted to the Gender Unicorn, there’s a new symbol of hope in town.

I first covered the unicorn in August of 2019, via the story of a California 7th Grade teacher.

The man gave a graphic to his ready-to-learn girls and boys…about girls and boys.

Also others.

In fact, the teacher informed his class they should call him “Mx” — a designation that’s ditched the land of Mr. and Ms. and struck out on its own.

And he handed the young skulls of mush a Gender Unicorn flyer from Trans Student Educational Resources.

Not all parents were thrilled.

Moreover, given our age of noun-self pronouns referencing animals, one mom on social media evidently thought the teacher identified as a crocodile.

“What a crock of s***!” she wrote.

Regardless, the unicorn’s been here to help.

And it isn’t only the pimple-faced that need schooling.

In August, I wrote about the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s instructions on what restroom to use.

In centuries past, such direction to 18-year-olds wasn’t required.

But times have changed, so the unicorn assisted anyone yearning to urinate but unsure of precisely how.

The mythical horse seemed a perfect companion to sex instruction — he/she/it was colorful, creative, and horny.

But now comes a competitor, and I assume its directives are delicious.

Ladies and gentlemen, and other folx, I give you the Genderbread Man Person:

Can said nonbinary individual be sold as the revolution’s new rep?

Well, at the University of Arkansas, they’re biting.

The college has co-opted the sweet snack to explain sexuality.

It seems sensible — per the baked good’s webpage, it “[breaks] a complicated concept into bite-sized, digestible pieces.”

Definitions are supplementally served:

Anatomical Sex

Sex (sometimes campuscalled biological sex, anatomical sex, or physical sex) is comprised of things like genitals, chromosomes, hormones, body hair, and more. But one thing it’s not: gender.

Gender Identity

Your psychological sense of self. Who you, in your head, know yourself to be, based on how much you align (or don’t align) with what you understand to be the options for gender.

Gender Expression

The ways you present gender, through your actions, clothing, demeanor, and more. Your outward-facing self, and how that’s interpreted by others based on gender norms.

Attraction

Like sex, attraction isn’t really a component of gender. However, we often conflate sexual orientation with gender, or categorize the attraction we experience in gendered ways.

The Genderbread Person was employed as part of U of K’s recent two-hour “Safe Zone Allies” training, which — as relayed on the session’s site — addressed “terminology around gender and sexual identities, community cultures and norms, policies that impact the LGBTQ+ community, heteronormativity, oppression and allyship.”

And there was a prize in the box:

After attending the session, participants can self-select to be a University Safe Zone Ally and will receive a window/door Safe Zone Allies sticker recognizing the commitment to being a safe space and place for all and will be added to the Microsoft Teams Community with other University Allies.

The woke workout’s stated goals:

  • An increased awareness of the issues that impact the LGBTQ+ community.
  • A foundational knowledge of terminology and common language.
  • A deeper awareness, understanding and comfort with LGBTQ+ topics.
  • An understanding of advantages society affords non-LGBTQ+ people.
  • An opportunity to be an ally to LGBTQ+ community on campus.

A slide obtained by Campus Reform disseminates the following:

Agreements for Today

  • Respect other lived experience and truths
  • Take responsibility for your own learning
  • Be willing and open to learn, unlearn and relearn
  • Say OOPS and acknowledge when you may unintentionally say something and wish you had not
  • Say OOPS and acknowledge when you may unintentionally say something and wish you had not
  • Say OUCH when someone’s words or actions may hurt you
  • Keep the highest level of confidentiality with private information of others. “Vegas Rule.”

Are they teaching academics in schools anymore? It seems unclear.

But institutions are surely trying to create a monolithic society.

If I may say so, if you need someone to tell you what you believe, then you’ve learned nothing from the information.

Secondly — putting wholly aside the notion of allyship — public education is coughing up counsel such as that above to students generally. If you need others to teach you about your sexuality, you’re not ready to be sexual.

And if you need information concerning your own identity or the things that attract you, you understand neither identity nor attraction.

Sex and attraction are the most instinctive things in the world.

If I’m wrong, however, the University of Arkansas is cookin’ up something constructive.

Even so, since there appears to be a battle over gender and issues of sex, left-wing leaders may want to consider something other than a Gingerbread Man allusion.

Those waging cultural war might want to remember that the Gingerbread Man dies at the end of that story.

And he meets his demise…in the jaws of a Fox:
