Current educational codes, tracking liberal-Left, are perpetuating illusions aboutWow. Substituting "American history" for "sex and gender" was my edit, but it is still spot on. More to come on that topic in my next post.
sex and genderAmerican history.

*That view is antithetical to the Founding Fathers who believed man was inherently evil (which is what the Bible teaches) thus their emphasis on limiting powers and distrust over centralization of power, i.e., "...in questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the constitution..." ~ Thomas Jefferson
