Read About How I Infiltrated a SOGI Education Information Session
Joanne Joyce is on the case
If I may, I’d like to direct you over to a recent mini-investigation I did for Gender Dissent where I attended a SOGI parent presentation via Zoom for the British Columbia Sea to Sky School District #48: Parents revolt in BC Schools SOGI Information Session.
It was… quite an experience.
Here is an excerpt to pique your interest!
School District No. 48 superintendent Chris Nicolson, an out gay man, then jumped in and proceeded to ratchet up the rhetoric.
He started by acknowledging the differences of opinion on the topics being discussed but instantly compared the concerned parents to parents who were against the end of racial segregation in schools.
“This is no different than ensuring that we are supporting students of diverse needs,” he said, “when we stopped segregating and brought our kids up from the basements and into regular classrooms, when we had racial segregation and we were worried about the contagion of the black skin making other people black, right? And now we have those fears about making folks gay.”
“I’ve seen some things on the chat about an ideology,” Nicolson continued, “I would remind you that we are a public school and we are beholden to human rights and as was shared, in 2016 it was put into law that we have policy and procedures to be inclusive of the LGBTQIA+.”
