Private Christian School Teaches the Joys of Transgenderism
A Christian school in Virginia is providing materials to students saying that gender is a state of mind and that "genderqueer" is a natural self-identity. St. Stephen's and St. Agnes in Alexandria, Virginia, is associated with the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia and teaches pre-K through 12th grade.
The Episcopal school features artwork displayed in the hallways pertaining to “The Genderbread Person.”
The St. Stephen's and St. Agnes “Genderbread Person” has a gingerbread man shaped cookie with a rainbow colored brain. It contains a heart-labeled orientation, and a symbol in the genital regions labeled sex, which identifies as male, female, and both. This poster is hanging in the halls of the school. The poster also provides St. Stephen's and St. Agnes students the URL www.itspronouncedmetrosexual.com, where they can peruse articles like “30 Examples of Heterosexual Privilege” or a “Comprehensive List of LGBTQ+ Vocabulary Definitions.”
The poster hanging in St. Stephen's and St. Agnes also contains four continuum topics: Gender Identity, Gender Expression, Biological Sex, and Sexual Orientation.
Under "Gender Identity," the poster says “Gender Identity is what you, in your head, think about yourself." Under Gender Expression the poster says “Gender expression is how you demonstrate your gender (based on traditional gender rolls) through the ways you act, dress, behave and interact.”
Complaints by parents to school administrators about the poster and teachings were rebuffed.
St. Stephen's and St. Agnes employs two “Health and Sexuality Educators,” including Laura Ambrose, a former yoga instructor and Peace Corps fellow. The high-school curriculum taught by Ambrose includes “Feminism and gender inequality,” “Health disparities at home and abroad,” “Eastern and alternative medicine,” and “Yoga and stress relief.” The school also pushes "safe spaces" and appoints "safe space ambassadors."
St. Stephen's and St. Agnes also has materials displayed in the halls from a student organization called the Gender, Sexuality and Romantic Minorities Alliance, or GSRMA. Complaints by parents about this poster being displayed in a Christian school were also rebuffed:
