Toronto District School Board's Calendar Shocks 6 Year-Old's Dad

This story from a few days ago is really sick stuff:

TORONTO - This Toronto dad is just not ready to explain to his first-grade son about transgender people, prostitutes, AIDS or female genital mutilation.

So one can imagine his shock when he found these issues listed as special days of recognition in his son's Toronto District School Board 2011-12 daily planner.

"I was looking through this thing and was shocked by the kind of days they are marking as 'days of significance,'" he said.

The first one that jumped out at him, under a headline that said "equitable and inclusive," was Nov. 19's Transgender Day of Remembrance.

Then came Dec. 1's World AIDS Day, followed by Dec. 17's International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers. There was also Feb. 7's International Day of Zero-Tolerance on Female Genital Cutting/Mutilation and Feb. 12's International Sexual and Reproductive Health Day.
"It's just bizarre," said the outraged dad. "He's six. I want him to enjoy being six."

The dad in Toronto has every right to be alarmed, but parents right here in America should also be alarmed ... because the very same thing is going on at schools throughout the U.S.A., as well.
