Planned Parenthood To Toddlers: ‘Some Girls Have Penises’

Planned Parenthood now advise teaching children that "your genitals don't make you a girl or a boy. Some girls have penises."

Remember when, as a child, you were taught the differences between the sexes and how babies are made? In 2017 Planned Parenthood have thrown all of those biological facts out with the bathwater. Instead of explaining to children the biological differences between the sexes, Planned Parenthood now advise parents to teach that “your genitals don’t make you a girl or a boy. Some girls have penises. Some boys have vaginas.

The Weekly Standard reports: Both the old and new Planned Parenthood recommendations for talking to preschoolers include explicit explanations of how a woman becomes pregnant. However, unlike the new, detailed discussions of multiple subjects over dozens of paragraphs, the old guidelines consisted of only two additional possible preschooler questions, and the answers were relatively anodyne:

Q. What’s that? (pointing to a woman’s breast, or other body parts.)
A. That’s a breast. Women have breasts. Men don’t. Would you like to know anything else about that?
Q. How come I have a penis and you don’t?
A. Boys have penises and girls have vulvas. I’m a woman — a girl who is all grown up — so I have a vulva instead of a penis. And you’re a boy, so you have a penis instead of a vulva.

From there, the advice jumps into a discussion of gender, giving a nod to the traditional definition, but taking great pains to incorporate the latest thinking about “gender identity“:

While the most simple answer is that girls have vulvas and boys have penises/testicles, that answer isn’t true for every boy and girl. Boy, girl, man, and woman are words that describe gender identity, and some people with the gender identities “boy” or “man” have vulvas, and some with the gender identity “girl” or “woman” have penises/testicles. Your genitals don’t make you a boy or a girl.

You can say that most girls have vulvas and most boys have penises/testicles. You may want to emphasize that it doesn’t matter too much what parts someone has—that doesn’t tell you much about them. But you can make that decision based on your values and how you plan to talk with your kid about gender as they grow up.

The organization’s website includes recommendations not just for preschoolers, but gives pointers for talking to children of all ages about their bodies, gender identity, relationships, sexuality, and reproduction. The new guidelines are quite extensive, delving into each topic for each age group far deeper than previous iterations and break new ground, even for an organization known for progressive attitudes about sex and sexuality.

Throughout the guidelines, the underlying message regarding a child’s gender (sex) is that it is unknown and unknowable at birth. Parents are told that “your kid figures out what their gender is really early on—and they’ll usually tell you. So in preschool and in early elementary school, trans kids are starting to realize that they’re not the gender everyone said they were when they were born.”

While Planned Parenthood encourages talking to children about most everything related to their bodies, sexuality and reproduction, the guidelines make one big exception: “Gender identity isn’t about what kind of anatomy you have—and asking transgender and gender nonconforming people about their bodies is NEVER okay.”

While Planned Parenthood links to a number of websites related to the topics covered, the website itself does not indicate the medical or scientific sources used to formulate the guidelines, recommendations, and information on gender identity versus biological sex.

    So creepy and sooo pervertedly PC. Western values have been taken over and destroyed by perverts: boys who prefer to have sex with other boys (which does NOT make either one a “girl” or “woman”, and girls who have sex with other girls (also which does NOT make either of them a “man”). Russia has it right in prohibiting public advertising or display of homosexual depravity and nonsense. And it IS depravity.It ruins people and societies.

    Having a sexual PREFERENCE of one kind or another DOES NOT CHANGE ONE’S SEX! And having body mutilation surgery (ie: “sex change” surgery) does NOT change your DNA or your genes. Simple. Look between your legs. If you were born with and have a penis, you are a male, if you were born with and have a vagina, you are a female. If you were born with either of these and have had them mutilated via surgery, you still are what you were before the mutilation. Your DNA doesn’t lie nor does it change with surgery, no matter how many operations you have. However, you do make the medical and pharmaceutical industries rich and you help destroy western cultures.

    Teaching these perversions to children and young people should be a crime. The people that promote these perversions should be barred from getting anywhere near children and should be barred from teaching or any other position of authority because they are psychopathic. The Perversion Club of LBGTQXYZetc. should never be exalted and treated specially – it is a PERVERSION and NOT NORMAL.

    People with these ideas need to be helped, not by reinforcing their delusions, but by helping them understand their feelings and their roles in society.

    IMO, people with non-traditional relationships should be barred absolutely from adopting children and bringing them up in a perverted sexual relationship of two men or two women. The child is ultimately ruined for life. The child and society both suffer.

    What happens when the LGBTQXYZetc. crowd start demanding “equality” for adults obsessed with sex with children as has already started? Does society just add one more letter to the bullsh*t that is the Perversion Club? And add one more color to that rag of an ugly flag? And how about a letter for animals or inanimate objects? Can we add another few colors for those as well?

    Where do we, as a society, draw the line? No wonder the birth rate has deteriorated so sharply in the west (along with IQs it seems). Make no mistake: promotion of the Perversion Club agenda is being done by those who want to divide and conquer the world, starting in the west, by creating confusion, illiteracy, inability to think critically, animosity and division in cultures that are millennia old, with the purpose of destroying them utterly so that the oligarchs can reign as they please over the resulting ignorant, in-fighting serfs.

    The people of the west have fallen victim to the whims and machinations of a select few psychopathic elite self-styled “masters” who want to shape the planet into their own perverted world view. It’s time to stand up and resist!

    More failed feminist logic ITS’ ORIGINS….and uses.

    Fat women are really thin.

    Size 24 Sweat pants are sexy.

    Armpit hair and “glitter pits” empower women.

    “Free the nipple” to end female objectification.

    “Slut-shaming” must, and will end via “SlutWalks.”

    Peeing your pants for equality

    Free-Bleeding to protest the oppressive “tampon-tax”

    A campaign to “shout your abortion” was launched via social media in effort to rid the stigma from the act of abortion, echoing the false feminist mantra, “my body my choice.”

    Protesting mistletoe because it “perpetuates” the well-exaggerated “rape culture.”

    Honorable mentions (because there just weren’t enough spots available):

    The much exaggerated “rape culture” must be stopped even if innocent men come as collateral

    “Baby it’s Cold Outside” is sexist

    Rush Boobs are Sexist, Free the Nipple is not

    Seductively reading the Bible combats misogyny…

    The word “Too” is sexist and must be stopped

    “Women are an oppressed class. Our oppression is total, affecting every facet of our lives. . . .

    “We identify the agents of our oppression as men. . . . All men receive economic, sexual, and psychological benefits from male supremacy. All men have oppressed women.”

     — Redstockings, “Manifesto,” 1969

    “Feminist consciousness is consciousness of victimization . . . to come to see oneself as a victim.”

     — Sandra Lee Bartky, Femininity and Domination: Studies in the Phenomenology of Oppression (1990)

    “Defining feminism as a commitment to gender justice means it cannot be reduced to a matter of personal ethics, choice or style. Instead, feminism is a commitment to social change. . . . ‘The personal is political’ was a powerful slogan expressing radical insights. These included the insights that one’s so-called personal life can be a site of injustice and domination whose inequities stem from social arrangements rather than individual personalities. . . . Although these insights were, in their time, revolutionary, accepting them does not entail that feminism can be equated with ‘lifestyle’ choices. To the contrary, taking seriously these insights suggests another popular slogan of second-wave feminism: ‘There are no individual solutions.’ ”

     — Alison Jagger, Just Methods: An Interdisciplinary Feminist Reader (2013)

    Feminism inherited from Marxism a collective worldview. Instead of seeing life as a matter of individuals each seeking to improve their own lives, the Marxist sees only the class struggle between the toiling masses and the demonized bourgeoisie. Likewise, feminists don’t see the individual man and woman, but rather perceive them only in their collective roles in the system of “male supremacy,” where men are oppressors and women are victims. Declaring that this systemic “injustice and domination” is universal, as Professor Jagger says, feminism insists that “individual solutions” are impossible, and that only a collective “commitment to gender justice” can bring about “social change.”

    Feminists Are Useful Idiots, And Doomed.

    Feminists and other leftists are useful idiots who serve only to destabilize the society. When the goal is reached, they will be “lined up against the wall”.
