In case you hadn’t recently experienced the urge to drink lead paint and just end all the madness, some liberal genius floating around in Academialand actually came up with a lesson plan to teach young children all about the upcoming “Day Without a Woman.”
(For those who’re too busy doing things like, I don’t know, working and living your lives, “A Day Without a Woman” is a planned strike brought to you by the same shrieking banshees who graced us with the pussy-hat wearing, cardboard vagina-displaying Women’s March back in January. To be held on Wednesday, the “strike” involves encouraging women to stay home from work, avoid shopping and wear red to prove to the world how important it is to not be a straight, white male...or something.)
Less attention has been sought by toddlers throwing blobs of mashed potatoes on the floor.
The accompanying “lesson plan,” posted on the official Women’s March website, advises teachers to explain to small children the following left-wing gobbledygook: “Today some women and girls didn’t go to work or school so that people can imagine what the world would be like without women. They are striking for the same reason many people marched in January.”
The plan then suggests showing a YouTube video collage from the Women’s March, which conveniently omits the event’s more vulgar protest signs and exhibits (although, for the observant seven-year-old, a few “Pussy Grabs Back” signs can be vaguely seen in the background).
According to the curriculum, children should then be told to jot down a list of activities that society expects from people “based on their gender,” following this up with the question, “How does that make you feel?”
Other suggested activities include a “Gendered toy sort,” the gist of which aims to convince little girls to play dress-up in Army fatigues and encourage little boys to ask Santa for Easy Bake Ovens. Children are also asked to “write a thank-you letter to a woman or girl in your life,” send a letter to their senator, or even “make a poster to educate people at our school.”
For “middle grades and up,” the plan suggests having students make “protest art” for the events like the “Why I’m a Feminist Photo Campaign.”
Because nothing says “liberty” like a little forced indoctrination.
