My issues with catholic schools just dropped a few points :D . has it got to the stage where the ramblings of most post modernist cultural Marxists have become "facts" to be passed on to kids. It would be interesting to see the background of the group that put this together?
Is there any risk of this nonsense spreading to Ireland or does the Catholic ethos of most schools actually prevent the rubbish coming out of US gender studies hitting the Irish classroom?

or am I wrong and I should check my privilege? :lol:

Victorian students will be taught about “male privilege” and how “masculinity” encourages “control and dominance” over women, as part of a mandatory new school subject aimed at combating family violence.

The Victorian government will push ahead with the rollout of its $21.8 million respectful relationships education program, despite claims the program fails to consider the multiple and complex drivers of family violence, ignores male victims and amounts to the brainwashing of children.

Evidence has emerged the program risks alienating men — by presenting all men as “bad” and all women as “victims” — a point highlighted in a report evaluating a pilot of the program in 19 schools last year.

As part of its broader campaign against family violence, the Andrews government has released a series of new resources aimed at kindergarten through to Year 12 classes designed to complement a “whole-of-school” approach to violence prevention.

The Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships learning materials aim to encourage gender equity in relationships and challenge gender stereotypes, which are key drivers of ­violence against women, it is claimed.

While the program refers to “gender-based violence”, the overriding emphasis is on men being the perpetrators of violent acts. Proposed lessons will introduce students to the concept of “privilege”, which is described as “automatic, unearned benefits bestowed upon dominant groups” based on “gender, ­sexuality, race or socio-economic class”.

“Being born a male, you have advantages — such as being overly represented in the public sphere — and this will be true whether you personally approve or think you are entitled to this privilege,” states guidance for the Years 7 and 8 curriculum,” it says.

By Years 11 and 12, students are asked to examine their privilege and ways that “equity” can be encouraged, such as catch-up programs, special benefits or entitlements for those who are not considered privileged.

“An awareness of the existence of male privilege is critical in understanding why there is a need for feminist perspectives, and education on gender at all,” the curriculum guide points out.

It also introduces students to the term “hegemonic masculinity”, which is defined as the dominant form of masculinity in society that “requires boys and men to be heterosexual, tough, athletic and emotionless, and ­encourages the control and dominance of men over women”.

Why not castrate all male children at birth? Or would that be a step too far... for now?

Another step on the road to destroying manhood. If only the intersectionalist non-binary idiots knew that they are just being used. If there are any men left in Australia they should fight this by any means necessary.

You can bet that is the end game for many of the liberals. These scum should be fought by any means available - they have declared war on not just males but straight white people of both genders. They should be shown no mercy in return.

Consent should be taught in all schools.
Privilege (able bodied, gender, sexuality, race, settled) would be a useful add on for transition year.

Sheila says to Bruce, "Just for once, cant you make me feel like a woman?"

So Bruce takes off his shirt, and says "Here you go, darlin'. Iron this." :)

Whatever the rights and wrongs of the proposed curriculum, I'm extremely impressed by this... who would have that that Australians of all people would be the first to invent a time machine?

Next week: Roman centurions to get lessons on postcolonial theory.

I predict most of the comments in this thread will demonstrate a need for similar education over here.

indeed, I have no problems with differences between the sexes being highlighted that men occupy both ends of the bell curve whereas women ted to be closer to the median. but this one sided approach is just about an attempt to break or control men by a very small group that have wormed their way into the right circles.

That might not work on grounds of genital mutilation which is a hot potato right now. Far better to give female babies strap on dicks so they grow up feeling well hung and comfortable with the sense of entitlement that brings.
