Well, this just about sums up intersectionality in a nutshell.
This school has attracted controversy for asking students who should survive a doomed earth based on things like religion and ethnicity…but where has everyone been for the last decade or so?
Intersectionality is an ideological caste system in which people of supposedly “marginalized” groups, which is always in the context of Western Judeo-Christian culture, of course, are assigned worth and virtue based on how many proverbial victim points they get.
So the natural conclusion of that, of course, is that if only a certain amount of people could “stay on the lifeboat”, obviously this would be based on their intersectional status, right?
The school was Cuyahoga Falls Middle School in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, and Cleaveland 19 got a copy of the assignment:
The school-issued assignment states that due to space limitations, only eight individuals can go.
The list identifies people by race, religion, sexual preference and physical disabilities.
The assignment gives each students five minutes to decide who is “most deserving,” then asks students to form a consensus in a group in which they decide the eight “passengers” who will make the trip.
This is what your children are learning in school, whether it’s this blatant or not. This is what they’re being taught by the movies they watch, the music they listen to, and the magazines they read.
Intersectionality is everywhere, and it has permeated our culture to the point that a teacher actually thought it would be OK to share with Middle School students (or at least important enough to risk a backlash from).
It’s blatantly biased racism, sexism, and classism, and it’s being normalized every day in our culture.
But just because it shouldn’t surprise you doesn’t mean it should make you mad. We absolutely need to push back against this caste system and return to our roots as a biblical nation based on equality, not hierarchical structures of victim status.
Who’s with me?
