The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a group which earned its reputation fighting racist organizations like the Ku Klux Klan but now brands mainstream nonprofits as "hate groups," has also launched a program for teaching children to view LGBT identities as good and healthy, even going so far as bribing teachers to push this messaging.
"Binary notions of gender, biology and sexual orientation exclude large swaths of human diversity," the SPLC's "Teaching Tolerance" program explains on its website. "This diversity can be better understood by using spectrum-based models. Spectra make room for anyone whose experiences do not narrowly fit into binary choices such as man/woman, feminine/masculine or straight/gay."
The "Teaching Tolerance" program, launched in 1991, "provides free resources to educators — teachers, administrators, counselors and other practitioners — who work with children from kindergarten through high school." The program aims to "reduce prejudice, improve intergroup relations and support equitable school experiences for our nation's children."
