transgender education for five yr olds, and laws that prove the law is an ass

This is an update to an earlier post along the same line.  Sex ed for toddlers. Or so I view 5 year olds.  OK, maybe not strictly speaking toddlers but kind of young I would think for this.  Transgender classes for five year olds?  What next? 
Glad I’m not a parent.  I’d really be stressed. Above and beyond my present state.

Something else in the article here that proves how stupid things can get.  Apparently if you kill a transgender person due to hate of that state of being, you will get 30 years in the slammer.  I guess as opposed to just killing someone cos you felt like it or were angry at them. Or killing in a robbery or home invasion. BUT,
if the crime were done out of hate, that’s much worse.  WTF?  Dead is dead period where the victim is concerned.  Talk to the families of victims and it’s doubtful they’d feel any better knowing their kin was murdered but hey, the killer didn’t hate the victim. Oh, well that’s alright then. 10 years off in five for good behavior.

A 19-month-old toddler called Fletcher was punched to death by his father, because he would not stop crying in his cot. Daddy was sentenced to nine years. Presumably, if he’d killed a transgender person his sentence would have been much higher.

Fraken idiots.

Transgender lessons for pupils aged five: Classes will ‘overload children with adult issues’, say critics


Children as young as five could be given lessons on ‘transgender equality’ under Government plans.

Information about transgender people is set to be included in the curriculum for personal, social and health education lessons, which are taught in thousands of primary and secondary schools.
The proposal is part of a Coalition policy programme entitled ‘Advancing transgender equality – a plan for action’, which was published yesterday.

In it, ministers warn a wide range of steps are needed to combat ‘transphobic bullying’, which is defined as the taunting of children who express ‘gender variant behaviours’.

‘Tackling transphobic bullying helps to address unacceptable behaviour and ensures that our society becomes more tolerant.’
As part of its review of PSHE, the Department for Education will consider adding ‘the teaching of equality and diversity, including transgender equality’ to the curriculum.

But critics said there was a danger that children were being overloaded with ‘adult issues’ as a result of such lessons.
Margaret Morrissey, founder of campaign group Parents Outloud, said: ‘These are adult issues and we should leave it until children are older or until they ask.

‘The problem is we are overloading our children with issues that they should not have to consider at a young age. PSHE is already overloaded with other issues.
‘We have given them sex education and teenage pregnancies have risen year on year.

‘We have told children about drugs education and we have a serious problem with drugs. We have told them about drinking and cigarettes and we have more children with alcohol problems and smoking.’

Also announced yesterday were longer jail terms for murderers who are motivated by hatred of transgender people.
The basic sentence for anyone convicted of such killings will be 30 years, Kenneth Clarke said. 

Similar attacks on disabled people will also face the same tough minimum term.
The Justice Secretary said that offenders ‘should be in no doubt that they face a more severe sentence for these unacceptable crimes’

Here’s a comment from a Daily Mail reader.

The basic sentence for anyone convicted of such killings will be 30 years, Kenneth Clarke said. The public want the basic sentence FOR ANY KILLING TO BE THIRTY YEARS not just those motivated by some sort of hatred towards a particular group. By making these comments he is effectively saying that a transgenders death is more worthy than an heterosexual persons death. I could not care less what a persons sexual orientation is but equality does not mean treating these groups more favourably or punishing those who commit crimes against them more severely no matter what the motive.If I was mugged the police would simply give me a crime number and that would be it but under Clarkes new rules If I was transgender and stated the crime was a hate crime more effort would be put in to catch the mugger .

  1. Also announced yesterday were longer jail terms for murderers who are motivated by hatred of transgender people.

    - but, but Holder and Corzine both said that ‘intention’ was the key - they aren’t guilty because they never intended to lie or steal. So how are these wizards of smart going to prove what the INTENTION was of a bully, ‘hate crime’ person?

    And in that vein, since we have imam after imam on tape (not to mention tape/still pictures of various muslim protesters) saying Death to Infidels, Death to America and of course Death to Jews - aren’t the radical extremists who happen to be islamic - perpetrating ‘hate crimes’ all the time - even attacking hollyweird (like DC, probably the most appropriate places for them to attack)?

    Just a thought for those of us who actually use the gray matter between our ears.
