I ran across an article this week published in the Christian Post reporting that young boys and girls in Sweden are slated to be referred to as “hens.” The gender neutral language is less offensive and the proponents of the idea think gender roles are outdated.
Earlier this month, the gender-neutral pronoun “hen” was proposed by lobbyists to be used in public schools instead of “he” (han in Swedish) and “she” (hon). The decision came shortly after the publication of Sweden’s first ever gender-neutral children’s book, Kivi och Monsterhund (Kivi and Monsterdog). It tells the story of Kivi, a child who wants a dog for “hen’s” birthday. Jesper Lundqvist, the author, also introduces several gender-neutral words in the book. ~Chistian Post
What’s so important about the social issues of Sweden? I had recently seen the following videos and when I saw this story about the children of Sweden, I realized, as in America- something evil and diabolical is going on. The people of Sweden who do understand are helpless. The social issues parallel much of what is happening here in America. The following video is a very sad representation of what is left of Sweden due to socialism and immigration.
Rape of Christian girls is not uncommon in Pakistan. See this report at Persecution.org Lest we think it could not happen here in America… so they thought in Sweden. Now look what has happened.
WARNING… in the following video there is one instance of vulgarity and a couple of gratuitous stills of bikini clad girls; but the importance of the message makes this worthy to view. We Americans need to wake up now. Support ACT for America.
And this from BBC News.
And finally a recent article on violence against young women in the US and concern about honor killings.
