“Human Rights Club” Approved
by West Bonner School Board
In September, the Beacon reported on a “Human Rights Club” recently approved by the school board. This lunch time “club” was touted as an opportunity for students to “talk about different cultures or races and focus on origins,” I recently had an opportunity to review the “Heritages” they plan to “respect and learn about” and was appalled. These “Heritages” include: Hispanics in September, People with disabilities in October, Native Indians etc, in November, Men and LGBTQ in December, Middle East in January, African American in February, Women in March, Asians in April, and “European (Irish, Polish, etc.)” in May.
The document states the “Names of races are identified as seen in the US Census.”
When did LGBTQ become a “race?” As far as I know it refers to sexual preferences, and nothing else. Why is LGBTQ grouped with “men”? What kind of a slant will this club give to kids about men? Why isn’t this club focusing on men as head of the family, instead of as LGBTQ? Are “women” a heritage? Is the club going to discuss women in the home, or only push an agenda of women in the workplace? “European (Irish Polish)” in May? What about the English, French, Germans and Scandinavians from which most of us are descended? Why is there not a monthly focus on our origins, instead of on aberrant sexual preferences? Is this an agenda that we want as a “club” for our high school students, a club that is offered over lunch so it will attract more students?
