NJ Grade Schools Makes Kids Dress as Women for Woman’s History Month — Yes Even Boys

To celebrate women’s history month this year, grade school boys are being forced to dress up like women at the Maple Shade School District in Burlington County, New Jersey and some parents are none too happy about it.

According to Beth F. Norcia, Principal of the Maude Wilkins Elementary School, the cross-dressing scheme was set up as a contest to celebrate women’s history month among the Burlington County schools.

The idea, says Principal Norcia, is for the kids to dress up as women through various periods of American history. When a nonplussed parent called the school to inquire about the dress-up day, the Principal seemed unperturbed by it all saying that women wear jeans, too, so boys didn’t have to wear a dress unless they wanted to.

The cross-dressing day is to take place April 16 to coincide with the gay activist’s school event called “Day of Silence,” a nation-wide effort ostensibly meant as an anti-bullying program. However, the real purpose of the event is an effort to spread the homosexual agenda in our schools. Singer Lance Bass, who “came out” not long ago, is featured in one of the videos sent to schools to get kids interested in the event and several prominent gay groups are pushing the idea. The Day of Silence event was created by a gay advocacy group named GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network).

According to one parent on FaceBook, the district has been indulging a politically correct agenda for quite a while. In order to excise Christian references in the school, they’ve renamed St. Patrick’s day to “Leprechaun Day,” renamed Christmas to the “Winter Holiday,” and renamed Good Friday to “Spring Day.”

Parent Janine Patterson Giandomenico asks some salient questions.

How is dressing like a woman from any era going to teach him about history? Why not let him do a report, poster, or other project on this subject? If he was attending a vocational school in the field of textiles, women’s fashion, etc, then it would make sense. My son is adamantly opposed, and I don’t see how forcing my 9-year-old to cross-dress in front of the entire school body is going to teach him anything about Women’s History.

This is a pretty outrageous school event. Forcing grade school boys to dress up as women makes no sense whatever. Pushing the gay agenda while feminizing our young boys through a cross-dressing day? This isn’t your parent’s grade school celebration, for sure.

And people wonder why homeschooling is growing so fast? Stuff like this most certainly should answer that question.

UPDATE

The school has canceled the cross-dressing event. Apparently once parents found out things did not go so smoothly for the school!

There is a bit of rear-end covering going on from the school’s principal in canceling the event, however. In the initial letter home to parents, it was pretty clear that the school intended for the boys to dress as famous women, or in representative fashion of women of American history. Yet in the letter that announced the cancelation of the cross-dressing day, principal Norcia claims that they never intended “to have boys dress up as women.” It is hard to reconcile the two letters, however.

In the original letter home it says, “If your child is a young man, he does not have to wear a dress or skirt, as there are many time periods where women wore jeans, pants and trousers. However, each child must be able to express what time period their outfit is from.”

This clearly is saying that boys should choose a time period where women might have worn “jeans, pants and trousers” but must still be portraying a woman.

In the cancellation letter, however, it also seems clear that Principal Norcia is contradicting the original letter. Principal Norcia says, “It was never our intention to have boys dress up as women. There are many different time periods that had women and men dressing in pants, suits, and even sweat suits. as a time period, not as a woman.” Norcia went on, “Students were just asked to dress as a time period, not as a woman. The Children were then being asked to identify their time period of dress.”

It really is hard to reconcile the two letter.
