Really?! Professor Slams Preschools for Being too 'Heteronormative'
That's right. There is a college professor who claims preschools are too heteronormative. Meaning, preschools aren't gay or trans enough for leftists' delicate sensibilities (see Parents Encourage 7-Year-Old “Transgender” Boy to Live as a “Her” and VMA’s Ditch Gender Categories, Adopt Stupid Social Justice Awards).
The tots only seem to recognize two distinct genders, and they accept them as being different. Heidi M. Gansen, a Ph.D. student who teaches sociology at UMich, sees a problem with that.
Defining “heteronormativity” as a culture in which “heterosexuality is always assumed, expected, ordinary, and privileged,” Gansen then argues that the issue is especially important to her research because preschools contribute to the “reproduction of inequalities pertaining to gender and sexuality,” such as gender roles and gendered feelings.
Playing “house,” for instance, is one area in which Gansen observed “heteronormativity” in the in the preschool setting, noting that only girls would imitate mothers while only boys would play fathers. If a girl asked to be the husband of the household, she would be quickly rebuffed by her peers, Gansen observed, lamenting that “children did not allow cross-gender roles.”
Meanwhile, teachers apparently make similar mistakes when they refer to “same-gender signs of affection or homosocial behaviors as friendly” as opposed to romantic, with Gansen arguing that the teacher’s interpretation of the friendship makes no concession for the fact that some students might be gay or queer.
So, there's a problem with the boys' wrists not being limp enough and the girls not aspiring to be bearded truck drivers? Boys being boys and girls being girls might be strange and "heteronormative" in leftist-land. But, everywhere else, we have a word for that: normal.
Leftists, like this sociologist, are a bunch of screw-loose sickos with your tiny tots in their sights. They're already indoctrinating them with Marxism and in-depth sex-ed instruction. Now, this "not enough gay tranny 4-year-olds" gobbledygook. For the left, it's problematic for boys and girls to like each other. It's even worse when they're complacent with their naughty bits.
I hate to break this to leftists, but being "heteronormative" has a purpose. Namely keeping the human race alive. There's a reason why 99% of preschoolers behave like they do. Good, old-fashioned biology. Little boys and girls grow up to be big boys and girls. Then, they bump uglies and make more little boys and girls, and so on and so on.
Leftists can decry being straight as "offensive" and "problematic" all they want. But, none of their whining will ever change the truth about biology and human nature. The sooner they realize that, the better.
Speaking of that.
