comrade-tweet

Well guess what?

Teachers’ union urges schools to host drag shows, use ‘comrade’ instead of ‘boy’ and ‘girl’

EDMONTON, Alberta, November 4, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — Parental rights advocates are up in arms over a just released Alberta teachers’ union resource to help teachers discuss LGBTQ issues that recommends staging “drag” shows in schools, referring to students as “comrades” rather than “boys” and “girls,” and having students take part in letter-writing campaigns to advocate LGBTQ rights internationally.

Turns out satire is impossible after all.
