college students on laptopsA university professor in Wisconsin wants little boys in elementary schools to be subjected to left-wing propaganda on what maleness should look like.

Campus Reform reports that University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Professor Kathleen Elliott wants to fight "male toxicity," starting with elementary school students as young as kindergartners. The educator claims she wants to promote "healthy masculinity." Julaine Appling, president of the Wisconsin Family Council, believes otherwise.

"One of [liberals'] main goals is to destroy God's image of maleness and femaleness in his highest order of creation, which is human beings – and so I guess this kind of approach would be in keeping with that," she tells OneNewsNow.

In her published article, Elliott explains that "teach[ing] boys and young men to recognize, reject, and challenge simplified, toxic masculinity is essential for creating cultural change."

Appling

That statement, according to Appling, reflects the long-held philosophy among radicals in education that the earlier one can get to children, the more success one will have in shaping their thinking, biases, prejudices, and worldview.

"They're unabashedly zealous about going after the youngest in our society," she adds, "in particular when it comes to using our public schools for their values indoctrination."

Appling argues that God will hold parents responsible for their children's education – and therefore, parents need to look carefully at the school choices they are making.
