I can't even express how much I hate the fact that they encourage students to think about their 'gender identity'. It's not something the average person ever has to think about. If anything this will make young people confused and less self assured because someone is teaching them that a gender identity is something they have and that they should be thinking and talking to other people about. The questions dont even really give the option to opt out and say 'no thanks, I don't have a gender identity'. I mean what is this bullshit?

'The Opinion essay focuses on how the pandemic gave some people time and space to question their identities. Has it been your experience this year that being away from school, and thus mostly removed from the “peer gaze,” has allowed you to be more yourself, whether in terms of gender expression or anything else? If so, how?'

bruh what are u even talking about?
