Kindergarten Teacher Tells Students When Babies Are Born, Doctors ‘Guess’ The Gender
A first-grade teacher told some kindergartners a fairy tale recently. Once upon a time, when a baby was born – every time, actually – the doctor delivering the baby could guess wrong as to which sex it might be.
None of them must be biologists because they – as we now know, thanks to Justice Ketnaji Brown Jackson – would be able to answer that question.
Years ago, before the institutionalization of stupid, determining sex at birth was so simple that an illiterate peasant could do it. Neither #woke educators nor confused supreme court justice nominees could muddy that water. Is there a stem on the apple?
It’s that simple, and it still is, unless you allow it to get out of control, and we have.
So when babies are born, the doctor looks at them and they make a guess about whether the baby is a boy or girl based on what they look like. Most of the time that guess is 100% correct; there are no issues whatsoever, but sometimes the doctor is wrong; the doctor makes an incorrect guess. When a doctor makes a correct guess, that’s when a person is called cisgender. When a doctor’s guess is wrong that’s when they are transgender.
I don’t care who you were then or what you are now – you can decide to be a giraffe, not my business, but I am curious why this conversation is even happening? Your role is as a teacher, and your job is to teach fundamentals—building blocks of education with maybe a few helpful social prompts. Sit up straight, hands to yourself, wait your turn, no shouting, teach them letters, numbers, introductory reading, math, and motor skills tasks.
Maybe a nap. Nothing quite like naptime.
