Teachers Learn New Alphabet

Teachers Learn New AlphabetA flyer promoting “LGGBBDTTTIQQAAPP Inclusiveness Training” was posted in an Ontario school by the local teachers’ union chapter. It suggests up to half of the public is “secretly LGBT.”

Elementary school teachers in Witby, Ontario, were recently asked to take part in “inclusiveness training” to teach them how to deal with LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP peers and students.

The new acronym is the politically correct Canadian “all inclusive” version of LGBTQ. The various letters stand for:

  • Lesbian
  • Gay
  • Genderqueer—“a person who does not subscribe to conventional gender distinctions but identifies with neither, both, or a combination of male and female genders.”
  • Bisexual
  • Demisexual—“a person who does not experience sexual attraction unless they form a strong emotional connection with someone.”
  • Transgender
  • Transsexual
  • Twospirit—“a hermaphrodite, a person who has both male and female sexual organs or other sexual characteristics.”
  • Intersex—“a person who is born with a sexual anatomy that does not conform to either sex.”
  • Queer
  • Questioning—“a person who is unsure of his or her sexuality.”
  • Asexual—“a person who has no sexual feelings or desires.”
  • Allies—also referred to as “straight allies,” people who are heterosexual, but are LGBTQ activists.
  • Pansexual—“a person who is not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity.”
  • Polyamorous—“a person who desires intimate relationships with more than one other person, openly, with the knowledge of all involved.”

The training program was offered by the local Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario chapter, the local teachers’ union. According to a flyer announcing the training session, the goal was to “become more familiar with current language, sensitive to current issues, and to share best practices in supporting our LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP peers and students.”

It continues:

Fewer than 1 percent of EFTO members are open with their identities, though some surveys suggest as much as half of the public secretly identifies as LGBT to some extent. If we want students to succeed, if we want to reduce staff anxiety and stress, we need to create a much more welcoming and accepting environment.

University of Ontario Institute of Technology criminology professor Barbara Perry conducted the training. According to her university biography, she has written “extensively” in the area of hate crime, with her recent focuses on “Islamophobia” and “LGBTQ hate crimes.”
