“Gender Fluidity” Confusion

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, June 5, 2015 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

Not too long ago, we learned that the terms gender and sex have different definitions. In this culture, the word gender indicates sexual behavior, but sex biologically identifies as male or female humans, animals, plants, and other living things. However, the politically correct phrase, “gender neutral,” was coined to propagate the false notion that no one is male or female, man or woman, boy or girl.

Alongside the attempt at gender neutrality comes another term called “gender fluidity,” meaning gender is not settled or fixed, which conveniently provides “wiggle-room” for males who claim to be females and females who claim to be males, and cross-dress, either temporarily or permanently, day-by-day or forever.

Before you decide that’s too absurd to be true, consider this May 15th FoxNews.com report. “One of the nation’s largest public school systems is preparing to include gender identity in its classroom curriculum, including lessons on sexual fluidity and spectrum – [promoting] the idea that there’s no such thing as 100 percent boys or 100 percent girls.” Continue reading

PONO Choices, Sexuality Curriculum in Hawaii

Pono Choices. In the Hawaiian language the word “pono” means “the right way” or “doing what is right,” but parents have informed appropriate officials that this curriculum is not “right” for their children.

poneShown in the photograph is Representative Bob McDermott of Ewa Beach, Hawaii, displaying a reproduction of a chart from Pono Choices, Hawaii’s highly controversial sex education curriculum used with 11-, 12-, and 13-year-olds in public middle schools.

As a legislator and parent, he is outraged that the state Department of Education refused to release a copy of the taxpayer-funded, almost-ten-hour sexuality training already experienced by some 1,700 public middle school students.

On December 16th, 2:00 p.m., Mr. McDermott requested a copy of the teacher’s guide, curriculum guide/overview, student work book and other materials to be delivered to his office by December 17th.

However, at 3:24 p.m. this response was sent: “We are not releasing the curriculum or associated materials to anyone who has not gone through the Pono Choices training. However, we can arrange for a time to meet so that you can review the curriculum and associated materials. Please get back to us and let us know if you would like to arrange a time to meet.”

Hard Core for Kids

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, November 22, 2013 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

Good morning, Jim. After President Obama said, “Sex Ed for Kindergartners Is the Right Thing to Do,” I remembered that sex education in Georgia was a big issue in 1992 when the Georgia Sex Education Review Committee met stiff opposition against mandatory K – 12 sex education that was based on community standards, at that time.

But, in 1994, the national Centers for Disease Control went far beyond community standards to publish a five-volume sex education series that adopted international standards and dropped sex education that was based on traditional morality of abstinence until marriage. Their focus was on safer sex that would avoid pregnancy, sexually transmitted disease and AIDS.

Now, in 2013, a campaign spokesman said the curriculum Obama mentioned is the one produced by the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS) that was organized in 1964, shortly after an international symposium about universal sex ed. By 1977 health educators in the United States had scrapped the customary health and hygiene lessons based on traditional morality and had adopted international sex ed based on the situation ethics of humanism.

“Navigators,” Facilitators for Obamacare

Caution! Verify that you are dealing with an appropriately-licensed individual
before sharing any personal information on Healthcare.Gov.
– Office of Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens, Consumer Alert November 8, 2013

Although the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare as constitutional, that decision allows states to decide (a) whether to create a state health exchange (Georgia did not.) and (b) expand Medicaid (Georgia did not.). Expanding Medicaid could cost states up to $53 billion over the first ten years.

Does Obamacare-compliant health insurance have a deductible before it begins paying?

Obamacare-compliant health insurance will have government assigned “in-network” doctors and hospitals for each policy level – bronze, silver, gold and platinum.
Projected Deductibles: Before insurance begins paying for healthcare, individuals may pay up to $6,3501 out-of-pocket, while out-of-pocket payment could be double that for families.

Will Obamacare premiums be uniform across the state?

Georgia is divided into 16 insurance regions, with premiums depending on where you live. Individuals age 26 – 35 paying $316 per month in Atlanta, would pay $4 more in Macon, but in southwestern Mitchell County the same coverage in the same age group would cost $466.

Why did 34 states reject a state exchange?

An exchange would cost each state between $10 million and $100 million per year, leading to tax increases. Also, state-created exchanges provide an avenue for HHS to impose one-size-fits-all rules on insurance products sold in the state, making it easier for the federal government to regulate individuals and businesses, collect more fines and taxes for redistribution, deny care to the elderly and increase insurance premiums.
