Genderless school?

Not sure if you saw this in the local newspaper, but it is a really sad story - a genderless pre-school in Sweden where children are not refer to as him or her but rather "friend", where no child is channel into any particular role, where all "stereotypes" are removed . . . they can be anything they want.   God created us to be different, to have different roles, to see the world differently, to have different emotions . . . is anything wrong with that . . . we should, and must embrace this differences.  Why are some people within society so afraid of the differences between boys and girls?  We should be proud of our unique strengths rather than be ashamed of them.
AT THE Egalia preschool in Stockholm, gendered pronouns are out. Staff avoid using words such as ''him'' or ''her'' and address the 33 children as ''friends'' rather than girls and boys.

From the colour and placement of toys to the choice of books, every detail has been carefully planned to make sure the children don't fall into gender stereotypes.

''Society expects girls to be girlie, nice and pretty and boys to be manly, rough and outgoing,'' says Jenny Johnsson, a 31-year-old teacher. ''Egalia gives them a fantastic opportunity to be whoever they want.'' . . . . .
Egalia is unusual, even for Sweden. Staff try to shed masculine and feminine references from their speech, including the pronouns him or her - ''han'' or ''hon'' in Swedish. Instead, they've adopted the genderless neologism 'hen', used in some feminist and gay circles.
 ''We use the word 'hen' when a doctor, police, electrician or plumber or such is coming to the kindergarten,'' Ms Rajalin says. ''We just say, 'Hen is coming around 2pm.' Then children can imagine both a man or a woman. This widens their view.''  Read more: link
I do have to wonder how confused these children will be when they grow older and meet the real world and get treated cruelly. Tragically, these children are more likely to feel far worse about themselves than children who are taught to embrace God’s design and purpose for their lives.

PS I have to wonder what will happen when they are in a shopping centre and need to use the public toilets? Will their parents let them choice male or female?



  1. This kind of thing makes me sick. It seems to me that the world is getting worse than in the days of Noah, worse than Sodom & Gomorrah... and you start to wonder how God can put up with it and when the Lord will return. This is seriously messed up! I'm SO glad I can raise my children in an environment of my own making, where girls can be girls and boys can be boys, where tolerance of anything and everything is unacceptable, and God's Word stands. I feel so blessed.

  2. I have one word for this phenomena: ugh! :(

  3. Any and all boundaries must be removed in order for sin to be rationalized and acceptable. If there are no boundaries to be crossed, then anything goes.

    It is sad, sick, perverted.

    Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly not sitteth in the seat of the scornful nor walketh in the way of sinners. But his DELIGHT is in the law of the Lord and in this law doth he meditate DAY and Night. Psalm 1.

  4. It is terrible what is happening in governments schools today. This is why we have chosen to pull them out. Children as young as kindergarten are being indoctrinated by the homosexual, transsexual, bisexual agenda.

  5. Jo: the public toilets in many European countries are unisex. Not a good idea to my mind, but they are anyway. I had some problems in France because of this.

    People are not genderless. To deny this is to deny reality & like you I think these kids will have huge issues later & no sle~esteem because they have not been taught to embrace who they are; which like it or not starts with gender acceptance.

  6. I agree this is a sad and harmful idea for the children themselves but also others around the. I too beleive in the differences in the sexes and that this is to our advantage....God is God and has done this for a reason.

  7. Hi Jo~ just came across this article that talks about "gender" issues. Pretty good.

    Love, Laura

  8. Mrs Santos, thankyoubfor that link. If gender wasn't important, God wouldn't have created it. All things are important if created by God.

    In Gods grace

  9. I read this on another blog I follow too, what can I say other than it's very very disturbing!!!

  10. Mind Boggling in the extreme.
