Last I Looked 2 X Chromosomes Meant a Girl, An X & a Y, a Boy

The more I read about all this PC education that tries to eliminate "gender" the more I am convinced that it is aimed at telling God where to stick it. OK, I know that sounds a bit harsh, but I mean it.
Let's look at Genesis 1:27 & see what it says: " And God created man to his own image; to the image of God he created him; male and female he created them." 2 points to remember, 1st we are all made in the image of God. 2nd He created male & female, not male or female. Male with an X & a Y chromosome. Female with 2 X chromosomes. Again, this time quoteing from Genesis 5:2 "He created them male and female."
Next stop is Genesis 2:24 where we read: "Wherefore a man shall leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they shall be two in one flesh." Not a man shall cleave to another man, or a woman to another woman, but a man & a woman get married & become one. Something Jesus clearly reminded us of (Mark 10:6 & Matthew 19:4) when he was teaching on divorce.
Gender is not optional, it is a part of how God made us in His image & likeness. & God's plan was for man & woman to be married to each other.
This isn't about accepting people because they are people made in the image & likeness of God, this is about telling people that a lifestyle contrary to God's will is acceptable. & in doing so, telling God we don't want to listen to You.
Yes, everyone is made in the image & likeness of God. Yes, some people struggle with same sex attraction. But this is saying rather than practicing chastity/celebacy as is the way God wants it, it is OK to sin by acting on that attraction. To be fair, it also implies that any form of sexual activity is OK, whether married or not, gay or straight.
Our sexuality is a gift from God. & there are proper ways to live that out. Pope John Paul's Theology of the Body teaches us what those ways are. However, what Ontario is promoting is anything but.

HAMILTON, Ontario, November 19, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Ontario government’s new all-day kindergarten curriculum, developed to be in harmony with their equity and inclusive education strategy, expects teachers to combat “preconceived notions” about the “gender” of five-year-olds.
“This is lunacy,” said Jim Hughes, national president of Campaign Life Coalition. “Are we going to allow teachers now to plant in the minds of four-year-olds the idea that they don’t have to accept being a boy or being a girl?”
A kindergarten draft document explains that all children, parents, and other school community members are to be welcomed and included "regardless of ... gender identity [and] sexual orientation,” in addition to categories such as ancestry and socio-economic status.
The document states that "preconceived notions about children's ... gender ... create barriers that reduce engagement and equitable outcomes.”
All full-day kindergarten programs in the province, it says further, are to be based on the expectations that it outlines.
The document conforms to the Ministry’s highly-controversial and all-encompassing equity and inclusive education strategy, which aims to shape all curricula and practice to the Ministry's ideals of equity and inclusion. These ideals have been sharply criticized for promoting alternate conceptions of gender and the notion that homosexuality is a normal lifestyle choice.
Pro-family activist Dawn Stefanowicz, who was raised by a homosexual father amidst the gay sub-culture, warned that pushing gender identity theory on kindergarten-age kids will seriously damage them.
“Government-mandated, explicit promotion of diverse sexualities, gender identities, and diverse family units in all-day classes exploits young children, creating confusion around their own innocent same-sex play with other children,” she explained.
The equity strategy, she said, “assumes that very young children have sexual feelings and thoughts, will sexually act out, and can provide sexual consent with whomever or whatever they choose.”
“This is ugly and divisive propaganda meant to control our precious children and separate them from the moral and religious upbringing of their parents, families of origin, and ethnic and faith communities,” she said. “In other words, this is state usurpation of parental rights and consent while taking control of our children.”
The draft document is available on the website of the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board, which directs those interested in their program to it.
Patrick Daly, the board’s chair, emphasized that the board had nothing to do with its writing and insisted that they do not “necessarily espouse everything in it.”
“Everything that’s taught in our schools is keeping with the teachings of our faith,” he told LifeSiteNews.
“I urge all parents to rise up and stand against this insanity,” said Hughes. “Protect your little boys and girls from being taught that they may not be little boys and girls after all.”
