DAILYKENN.com -- The questions we should ask are: First, why are they doing this and, second, who is doing it?
The first answer is derived from the cultural Marxist cult that has permeated every aspect of Western culture, but seems to be particularly intense in the education arena.
The apex of morality in the Marxist model is absolute equality.
Marxism views wealth disparities as the nadir of morality.
Natural aptitudes are largely responsible for wealth disparities. That poses a problem for Marxism. To resolve it, Marxism simply ignores nature and declares aptitudes to be the outcome of social influence.
That is: Females earn more than men because males are impacted by society differently than females.
Oddly, the Marxism who bear the stolen valor of feminism care little for gender inequality imposed by the Islamic religion.
That divergence strongly suggests that Marxism isn't truly concerned with women's rights, but is more accurately focused on destroying Western culture and its traditional family.

Following State regulations to counteract traditional gender roles, a number of Swedish preschools have begun experimenting in innovative ways to blur the differences between boys and girls.
The Swedish government has been committed to the deconstruction of gender for decades, and in 1998, added a requirement to its national curriculum that all preschools “counteract traditional gender roles and gender patterns” and encourage children to explore “outside the limitations of stereotyped gender roles.”
At preschools across the country, toddlers are addressed by gender-neutral pronouns, encouraged to play at games commonly associated with the other sex, and forced to overcome natural tendencies toward aggression or passivity, according to a March 24 article in the New York Times.
The State curriculum “urges teachers and principals to embrace their role as social engineers,” the Times article declares, despite the fact that the effect of this teaching method on children “is still unclear.”
At the Seafarer’s Preschool outside Stockholm, for instance, teachers remove gender-specific toys like cars and dolls and have the boys play kitchen while the girls are made to shout “No!”
In attempts to teach gender fluidity, teachers are told to treat the boys and girls alike in every way, with no exceptions, and even to curb behavior generally associated with their sex.
The school has its own “in-house gender expert,” who periodically reviews progress on “gender objectives” for the students, aimed at breaking down gender stereotypes received from families and society.
The teachers begin with the premise that there is no such thing as something that is “for boys” or “for girls” and they try to inculcate this gender neutrality in every schoolchild.
At the Seafarer’s Preschool, the male children’s natural tendency to boisterousness and physicality is intentionally counteracted and they are encouraged to be more passive and quiet, and to engage in activities such as painting. The girls, on the other hand, are denied their desire to be picked up and held, and are instead made to shout and assert themselves.
“Sweden is really the pioneer,” said Lann Hornscheidt, a professor of gender studies and linguistics at the Humboldt University’s Center for Transdisciplinary Gender Studies. “No other country has made such an effort to break down gender barriers among children.”
The godfather of Swedish gender-neutral preschools was a man named Ingemar Gens, who was hired by the town of Trodje as “equal opportunity expert” in 1996. Gens’ background was not in education, but in journalism, though he “dabbled” in gender theory and sought to break down the norm of Swedish masculinity.
