University of Kansas to Facilitate ‘Feminist Parenting Group’

“raising awareness of critical issues related to gender and sexism”

The goal is apparently to produce ‘intersectional’ children. What could go wrong?

Campus Reform reports:

University facilitates ‘feminist parenting group’

This fall, the University of Kansas will be facilitating a “feminist parenting group,” where participants will learn “strategies for raising intersectional feminist children.”

KU’s Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equality will be hosting at least three meetings this fall meant to “support student-, staff-, and faculty-parents as well as other interested individuals in exploring strategies for raising intersectional feminist children.”

The Center explains its purpose as practicing “intersectional trans-inclusive feminism” in order to “challenge the status quo and promote gender equity by raising awareness of critical issues related to gender and sexism, providing opportunities to translate awareness into action, and empowering individuals to advocate for themselves and others” by approaching subjects “through a social justice lens.”

The Center also prides itself on providing “education, involvement opportunities, and tools” that “challenge stereotypical notions of gender and barriers that inhibit students’ academic success, persistence to graduation, and ability to thrive in the workplace.”

The Feminist Parenting Group program seeks to “empower parents and caregivers to raise children who challenge gender stereotypes and kyriarchy; support equity and social justice; show compassion for themselves and others; respect diversity and difference; and live authentically with vulnerability and empathy,” the center explains, promising that “At each session, participants will learn of at least one new skill or resource useful for nurturing intersectional feminist youth.”

    It’s been way past a long time for the taxpayers to rise up and demand the closure of the grievance studies departments and courses.

    Taxpayer-supported schools should only be offering courses of study where the graduates will have the potential to be gainfully employed people who stand at least some chance of supporting, through taxes, the very institutions they went to. Feminist / women’s studies, black / “African-American studies, and queer / gender / LGBTQEIEIO studies are all nonsense majors that contribute nothing to society.
