STOCKHOLM (AP) — At the "Egalia" preschool, staff avoid using words like "him" or "her" and address the 33 kids as "friends" rather than girls and boys.

From the color and placement of toys to the choice of books, every detail has been carefully planned to make sure the children don't fall into gender stereotypes.

Romans 1:26-30

[26] For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. [27] And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error. [28] And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient; [29] Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness, full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity, whisperers, [30] Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

[26] "God delivered them up"... Not by being author of their sins, but by withdrawing his grace, and so permitting them, in punishment of their pride, to fall into those shameful sins.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Pride, the root of all sin and the chief sin of the sodomites.

"Egalia gives them a fantastic opportunity to be whoever they want to be."

Of course that's nonsense.

Egalia gives them the opportunity to be what their perverted "teachers" want them to be.

Liberals see Sweden as a role model. So, enjoy this look into the future.

They don't protect their women.
They have no interest in protecting their children, either.

Yeah, I can see that.

We had to remove our mental barriers between cooking and construction when I remodeled our kitchen last year. Can’t say how much gypsum, sawdust and paint we got in our food.

Jukka Korpi, 44, says he and his wife chose Egalia "to give our children all the possibilities based on who they are and not on their gender."

Ahhh, come on Jukka! Admit it! When you think the wifey isn't around, you succumb to the urge to stand when you piss! (But probably scours the seat so that she won't know)...

In other news- Sweden continues to be hit by major earthquakes that have been traced to thousands of ancient Swedish Vikings rolling over in their graves.

boys and girls play together with a toy kitchen, waving plastic utensils and pretending to cook.

So if they are sooo “egalitarian” why no guy activities? Where are the running viking pillage games,[ like playing army]?

When I was about 4 or 5 a playmate and I negotiated to try the two mom thing. Immediately there was a fight over who picked the food for dinner and we decided to play stepmother/fairy godmother and Cinderella instead.

I wonder if they place equality on wrestling, faux sword fighting and car racing or are those even encouraged?

On the plus side, after they eliminate all possible nurture and environmental biases, and the children still gravitate to what they consider "gender stereotypes", then they will have no choice but to accept that male and female really are different.

Nah, who am I kidding? They'll just use it as further evidence that they weren't trying hard enough to instill "equality".

“could make the children confused and ill-prepared to face the world outside kindergarten.”

The entire purpose of liberalism.

You got that right. After reading one of the books by Stieg Larsson and Reg Keeland that takes place in Sweden, I couldn’t live in that God forsaken country. Socialism has gone amok. This is the kind of crap our liberals try to ram down our throats.

An ideal environment to emasculate all masculinity of the boys and to turn them into homosexuals. Simultaneously, they nurture the girls to be masculine lesbians.

“Different gender roles aren’t problematic as long as they are equally valued,” says Tanja Bergkvist, a 37-year-old blogger and a leading voice against what she calls “gender madness” in Sweden.

One Kewpie Doll awarded for a Moment of Brief Mental Clarity.

Bergkvist noted on her blog that the state-funded Swedish Science Council had granted $80,000 for a postdoctoral fellowship aimed at analyzing “the trumpet as a symbol of gender.”

Gee, if the US job market proves too tough nice to know I can always move to Sweden and get paid big bucks to study sexist trumpets or some other such nonsense. Do the Swedes realize that the rest of the world is laughing at them?

“Comrade”? Seems gender neutral terms are the words of Communists.
