Michigan school district cancels proposed lesson on ‘tree,’ ‘ze’ pronouns after backlash

A Michigan school district canceled a proposed optional lesson for first graders about novel gender pronouns, including “tree” and “ze,” citing security concerns. “The goal of the voluntary mini-lesson was to help promote Dewitt Public Schools’ vision of a safe, nurturing, and supportive learning environment where all learners can succeed,” DeWitt Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Shanna Spickard wrote in a message on April 19 to the district’s families and staff. “Unfortunately, it has become a major disruption and distraction to that vision in which our staff, administrators, and students feel unsafe.” Schavey Road Elementary School in DeWitt, Michigan, had sent a letter on April 11 informing parents of the school’s plans through the optional lesson to “help students share and explore pronouns through discussion and literature to embrace differences and promote acceptance.” Following the announcement, Spickard said staff members had received inappropriate, angry and threatening phone calls, emails and social media messages, and the lesson was canceled for safety reasons. POWERFUL TEACHERS UNION UNVEILS LGBTQ TOOLKIT WITH ZE/HIM PRONOUNS IN THE CLASSROOM: ‘CRITICAL’ “While the vast majority of these inappropriate communications have originated outside of our community, several staff members have expressed feeling anxious, stressed, and even afraid to go to school,” she wrote. “This is unacceptable. We are in contact with local law enforcement regarding these communications and have increased both police and administrative presence as precautionary measures.” Spickard told Fox News Digital that she did not have any additional comment or information. Republican House candidate Tom Barrett, who’s running in Michigan’s 7th Congressional District, which includes the school, and had spoken out against the lesson, expressed gratitude in a statement. “My wife and I have four young kids, so it was shocking to learn that a local school was teaching alternative pronouns to first graders right here in mid-Michigan,” he told Fox News Digital. “It’s already incredibly difficult to protect our kids from inappropriate content, so the last place we should have to worry about them is in elementary school. While I’m grateful that common sense prevailed and this lesson was canceled, it was an unnecessarily close call that is becoming far too common.” The proposed lesson planned to use the book “They She He Me: Free to Be!” by Maya Gonzalez, which includes cartoon pictures of men and women using interchangeable pronouns and teaches kids to embrace nonbinary gender terminology, including “ze” and “tree.” MICHIGAN HOUSE PASSES BILL THAT COULD MAKE USING WRONG PRONOUNS A FELONY FINEABLE UP TO $10,000 “On the inside, you may not feel like a he or she at all,” the book reads. “Maybe they feels most free or you may feel like both she and he.” Children are taught they can “claim” their pronouns outside “he and she” by creating the way they want to be addressed. “You can use your own name as a pronoun,” the book says. “You can change pronouns from he to she or she to he. You can use new ones like ze or create your own like tree! Some people use they, which is a perfect way. There are many more pronouns waiting to be discovered and used.” The book also instructs kids to use the pronoun they observe a playmate saying and if they do not hear a pronoun, the child can always use “they.” Children are also instructed to “play with pronouns” by imagining how characters feel on the inside and changing their pronouns. Spickard said the goal of the lesson was to help promote a safe, nurturing and supportive learning environment where all learners can succeed. She added she and the school board did not make the decision lightly but ultimately elected to listen to staffers’ safety concerns. PARENTS SUE CALIFORNIA FOR ‘MISLEADING’ BRANDING OF PARENTAL NOTIFICATION POLICY ON NOVEMBER BALLOT: REPORT Before the lesson was canceled, Spickard released a statement to Fox News Digital that said the “optional mini-lesson is not part of the core curriculum but is a supportive measure to promote inclusivity, a core value of our district.” CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP Fox News’ Hannah Grossman and Maria Lencki contributed to this report.

Psychologist becomes first person in Peru to die by euthanasia after legal battle

NEW DELHI: Peruvian psychologist, Ana Estrada, who battled an incurable disease that gradually debilitated her muscles and made her bedridden for years, passed away by euthanasia, according to her attorney on Monday. This event marked the first instance of euthanasia in Peru, where such practices are prohibited by law.Estrada had long fought through legal channels in Peru for the right to choose her own end, gaining attention in the conservative nation where both euthanasia and assisted suicide remain illegal. In a landmark decision in 2022, Peru’s Supreme Court made an exception for Estrada, affirming a lower court’s ruling that granted her the authority to determine the timing of her death, with assurances that those who assisted her would not face legal repercussions.Throughout her legal battle, Estrada’s plight gained widespread attention, shedding light on the debate surrounding the right to die with dignity. Suffering from polymyositis, an irreversible muscular condition that afflicted her since adolescence, Estrada gradually lost her ability to walk, eventually becoming confined to a wheelchair by her twenties.Despite her physical limitations, Estrada pursued a career in psychology, achieving financial independence and establishing herself as a therapist. However, as her condition deteriorated further in 2017, she found herself increasingly confined to her bed, grappling with respiratory issues and surviving bouts of pneumonia.Communicating through transcription software due to her inability to type, Estrada maintained a blog titled “Ana for a death with dignity,” documenting her struggles and advocating for euthanasia as a means to end her suffering. She emphasized her desire for autonomy over her own life, expressing the wish to bid farewell to her loved ones peacefully when the time came.Estrada’s legal victory paved the way for a broader conversation about end-of-life rights in Peru and beyond. While euthanasia remains illegal in most Latin American countries, Colombia legalized the practice in 2015, and Ecuador decriminalized it in February.(With agency inputs)

London Marathon runner completes race after tasting 25 glasses of wine

A London Marathon runner tasted a different glass of wine each mile of the race. Tom Gilbey, who is a professional wine seller, drank 25 glasses of wine during the 26.2-mile route, while also trying to guess the country of origin, producer and year. He was able to guess seven wines perfectly, and on 14 occasions he was partially correct. Despite stopping to sample the wine at every mile, he still completed the race in less than five hours. Mr Gilbey was raising money for the Sobell House Hospice Charity in Oxfordshire, where his mother Caroline was nursed during her last days.

ITV Emmerdale fans ‘solve’ Tom King’s downfall in Belle Dingle twist after camera scene

Emmerdale fans are wondering if a scene in the latest episode gave away Tom King’s looming downfall. The villain carried on targeting wife Belle Dingle and her pal Vinny Dingle in the latest episode of the ITV soap, amid a coercive control storyline on the show. But something Tom pushed forward with in his attempts to control wife Belle might lead to his downfall, while a recent lie could also give the game away. A recent faked break-in at the house saw Tom claim he had reported the theft to the police, when he had not. He told Belle the officers said there wasn’t much that could be done, and they might not find out who did it. He knew full well he had trashed the house in anger at Belle for staying out with her work pals, after she’d lied to him about working late. She has no idea he is tracking her on an app on her phone, while he also installed a camera “for the puppy” to watch her when she is at home. Tom also attacked Vinny recently and left him for dead, after Vinny came close to the truth about him spying on Belle. Since then, Tom has remained undetected and has been taunting Vinny, belittling him while also trying to stop the pair spending any time together without him there. Belle was awkward this week when Tom asked her about turning the puppy camera off, before he suggested Vinny’s attacker could be the same person who trashed the house. Trying to scare her once more into feeling unsafe in her own home, Tom suggested they needed to install cameras in the house, which she was not keen on. But Tom managed to manipulate her into agreeing with him, using the fact the police were doing nothing about the break-in, and Vinny’s attack, as reasons. On Tuesday, Belle commented that the company were heading to the house that day to install the new security cameras. With Tom once again bringing up the fact there had been no news with the police and the case had gone cold, fans wondered whether he would finally let slip his own guilt. Given he still has Belle’s rings somewhere after taking them, some fans wondered if these would pop up in Tom’s possession – so might he accidentally reveal them on camera and forget he is being recorded? Might Tom be exposed for his behaviour another way on the cameras, perhaps when he’s stalking Belle or if he turns violent with her as reported? Then there’s the fact that at any point, Belle could go to the police about the break-in and demand more be done, only to learn Tom hasn’t actually been to them at all. Questioning this latter theory, one viewer posted on X: “I hope Belle gets a chance to talk to the police alone no tetchy Tom there then finds it not even reported the crime.” Will this lead to Tom’s lies unravelling, and might she figure out he caused it? Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7:30pm on ITV1 and ITVX, with an hour-long episode on Thursdays.* Follow Mirror Celebs and TV on TikTok , Snapchat , Instagram , Twitter , Facebook , YouTube and Threads .

Schoolboy, 15, accused of murdering Alfie Lewis showed ‘no mercy’ as he stabbed him to death, court…

A teenager accused of murdering schoolboy Alfie Lewis showed ‘no mercy’ as he stabbed him to death in a ‘vicious’ broad daylight attack, a court has heard. Alfie, 15, was killed ‘in full view’ of pupils leaving a primary school in the Horsforth area of Leeds on November 7 last year. The accused teenager, also 15, has gone on trial over the attack and denies murder, claiming he was acting in self-defence. Jurors at Leeds Crown Court today heard that witness John Joseph was driving past on a work errand when he saw ‘fighting in the middle of the road’. He said: ‘I immediately put my hands on my horn. I was beeping my horn rapidly to say “what’s going on here?” I knew it was kids straight away. A teenager accused of murdering schoolboy Alfie Lewis (pictured) showed ‘no mercy’ as he stabbed him to death in a ‘vicious’ broad daylight attack, a court has heard The stabbing occurred outside a school in the Horsforth area of Leeds ‘I thought that would make them wake up and realise they were in road traffic. ‘The fight had already started by the time I got there and put my hand on the horn. ‘I didn’t stop until the person that was doing the stabbing stopped. I didn’t realise he was actually stabbing the person. ‘He looked like he was trying to get some hits in. What I do remember was the amount of time he was attempting to stab the person.’ In a 22-minute pre-recorded police interview played in court, Mr Joseph added: ‘When the guy that was stabbing stopped, it was at that point I saw the instrument in his hand. ‘The first thing I thought was “wow, that’s a big knife, is that”. I’m just guessing, it was about four to five inches long. ‘It’s the way he held it that made me notice it.’ Mr Joseph added: ‘Alfie then got up, brushed himself off, and briefly said “I’m alright”. ‘But by the time he got to the pavement, he just fell flat on his face.’ Mr Joseph added that he then drove after the fleeing boy, who had showed ‘no mercy’ during the attack. He said: ‘Alfie was screaming “stop, stop”, trying to defend himself as much as possible. ‘As I think about it, it was very vicious, the way he was doing it. Police officers at the scene of the stabbing on November 7 last year ‘I can understand if you’re fighting for your life. If a burglar burst into your house and you’re fighting for your life, I can understand that measure. ‘But Alfie was defenceless on the floor and this gentleman was doing as much as he could to inflict some sort of damage to Alfie. ‘He was really going for it. There was no mercy in what he was doing. ‘He wanted to inflict pain, you could tell by the amount of times he did it. Mr Joseph added: “It was merciless in the fact that he kept going back. ‘There was no care in the world. Broad daylight, busy road, parents on the side, school leaving time – he continued what he was doing. He didn’t stop.’ Earlier the court heard the accused schoolboy was his usual ‘bubbly and chatty’ self in his last lesson of the day before stabbing Alfie Lewis through the heart on the way home. The jury heard a statement from one of the defendant’s teachers, who said his behaviour was ‘nothing out of the ordinary’ during the last lesson of the day of the stabbing. He said: ‘He was both bubbly and chatty. He was just his normal self.’ The teacher said the defendant ‘left the classroom quickly’ when the lesson finished, but that ‘so did most of the other students, as is normal’. He added: ‘I can say with absolute certainty there was nothing at all in his behaviour during the lesson that gave me any cause for concern. ‘He gave me no indication of what his intentions were.’ The court also heard evidence from the defendant’s friend, who was walking back from school with him on the day of Alfie’s death. The witness said there had been nothing unusual about the defendant that day, and he had not mentioned Alfie, or being worried about anything. He told jurors that as the two of them were walking, they saw Alfie on his own near a crossing close to a primary school. ‘Normally we just cut through in front of the gate to the primary school but whilst we were walking (the defendant) just cut off me to go to Alfie’s direction. ‘I was just really confused why he just left me, so I just carried on walking.’ The witness said the defendant looked ‘more concentrated’ after seeing Alfie. He told the court that as he was walking away, he heard Alfie shout: ‘Chill out.’ The witness said: ‘I turned round and saw (the defendant) holding a knife and attacking Alfie.’ He said Alfie was walking backwards at the time, adding: ‘After (the defendant) stabbed Alfie, he just ran off.’ Being questioned by Nicholas Lumley KC, defending, the witness agreed he ‘must have missed the start of whatever happened’ as he had his back to Alfie and the defendant. He said he had never seen the knife before and did not know where it had been before it was in the defendant’s hand. The trial is being heard at Leeds Crown Court (pictured) Jurors have heard about two previous incidents involving Alfie and the defendant. Prosecutor Craig Hassall KC said one was in July 2023 when Alfie intervened in a fight involving the defendant, and the second happened on Halloween, when Alfie claimed the defendant threw a firework at him. Mr Hassall told jurors Alfie had been walking down the street to meet friends at the end of the school day when the defendant, who was 14 at the time, attacked him with a 13cm long kitchen knife he had brought from his home. He said witnesses recalled Alfie looking ‘surprised and shocked’ and saying to the defendant: ‘What are you doing?’ as the incident unfolded close to St Margaret’s Primary School, in Town Street, Horsforth, just before 3pm on November 7, 2023. The prosecutor said a post-mortem examination revealed the fatal stab injury was a 14cm deep wound to Alfie’s chest which punctured his heart. He added: ‘As we understand it, (the defendant) will accept that Alfie was killed by the knife from his kitchen drawer at home, but will say that, at all times, he was acting in self-defence.’ The trial continues.

Declan Rice’s girlfriend Lauren Fryer deletes all of her pictures after cruel  bullying over her…

Declan Rice’s long-term girlfriend Lauren Fryer has deleted all of her Instagram pictures after receiving a barrage of abuse online over her appearance. Lauren, 25, who is the childhood sweetheart of Arsenal player Declan Rice, also 25, wiped all posts from her Instagram page in recent days after finding herself the target of cruel online trolls. She was taunted for her appearance, with the bullying first starting in December last year when an anonymous account told England international team member Declan he ‘could do better’. Recently, Declan was told he had ‘low standards’ for being in a relationship with Lauren, who is the mother to their 20-month-old son, Jude. While Lauren still has 64,000 followers on Instagram and has kept her profile public rather than private, she has deleted all her pictures and videos amid the abuse, prompting reality star Liberty Poole, 24, to speak out. Television personality Liberty, who appeared on the seventh series of Love Island in 2022 and Love Island All Stars earlier this year, wrote on her Instagram Stories: ‘I think she’s beautiful this is crazy. ‘What happened to celebrating different body types and embracing how we are all individually made. ‘Beauty standards these days are unrealistic and everyone’s gone mad because of social media. ‘I’m going to keep preaching about it till I die. Time for change, this can’t continue.’ Sportsman Declan has been romantically involved with Lauren for nearly eight years, but the couple prefer to conduct their relationship away from the public eye. In August 2022, he appeared to confirm the birth of his first child with partner Lauren by revealing a tattoo dedicated to a newborn boy during a game when he played for West Ham United. He prompted speculation at the time that he had welcomed a son, named Jude, with his long-term girlfriend earlier that month by exposing a tattoo of the child’s name and apparent birth date – August 7. Jude’s star-sign, Leo – characterised as a symbol of self-confidence and attractiveness – also featured within the delicate inking on then West Ham captain Rice’s lower left arm. Despite a preference for privacy, the couple let their hair down during a rare public appearance at the Reading Festival in 2021. They were pictured rubbing shoulders with notorious former Oasis hellraiser Liam Gallagher following his headline performance at the annual event. Rice had previously admitted that his long-term girlfriend is jealous of his bond with Chelsea ace Mason Mount – a childhood friend from their time together at the west London club’s academy. He told The Sun: ‘My missus is quite worried. I’m genuinely being serious. She’s quite worried. Oh she’s just always: “You two . . . you love him more than you love me”. Honestly. We just get it in the neck all the time. But they need to understand the friendship.

Don’t negotiate with terrorists! MAUREEN CALLAHAN demands: Defund the Ivy League NOW… before this…

Defund the Ivy League. In a disgusting, shameful, cowardly appeasement of ‘pro-Palestinian’ students who are pledging fidelity to Hamas and bullying, threatening, and attacking Jews on campus, university presidents — led by Columbia’s Minouche Shafik — are doing nothing. On Sunday, the day before Passover began, Columbia Rabbi Elie Buechler warned Jewish students to stay home. ‘The events of the last few days… have made it clear that Columbia University’s Public Safety and the NYPD cannot guarantee Jewish students’ safety in the face of extreme antisemitism and anarchy,’ he wrote in a WhatsApp message. ‘It is not our job as Jews to ensure our own safety on campus,’ he continued. ‘No one should have to endure this level of hatred, let alone at school.’ Columbia’s president clearly begs to differ, issuing a morally reprehensible open letter on Monday that paid tribute to the ‘many views across our diverse university’. In giving equal weight to antisemites and her own persecuted Jewish students and faculty — in refusing to corral, punish and expel these pro-Hamas hatemongers — Shafik sends one very clear message: She doesn’t care about Jews on her campus. She doesn’t care that, as student David Jonah Lederer told CNN on Tuesday morning, he and his brother had been attacked by these ‘pro-Palestinian’ protesters, one throwing a rock at his brother’s head, no security anywhere. Shafik should be fired immediately. She should hang her head in shame. Columbia has a $13.64 billion endowment and around 300 Jewish students. Shafik can clearly afford to provide one-on-one security for any Jewish student or faculty member who wants one. Billionaire donors should follow alumni Robert Kraft’s lead and divest from Columbia. Board members should resign en masse. Jewish students should withdraw and demand that their tuition be refunded in full. A class action lawsuit surely awaits. Still standing are what CNN politely calls ‘Gaza solidarity camps’ on the Columbia quad, where students screaming for the elimination of Israel and the birth of another Holocaust are also, per a cheerful dispatch from New York Times, ‘in a rather upbeat mood, noshing on donated pizza and snacks’ — organic snacks at that. Of course. One must not skimp on proper nutrition while persecuting Jews. ‘An impromptu dance party had even broken out,’ the Times reported. How wonderful! Are these protestors also fully committing to the misogyny, rape, torture, and honor killings so central to Hamas? There’s nothing like seeing privileged students of the Ivy League, young women especially, wearing keffiyehs in solidarity with a terrorist group that would throw them and their most beloved gay, non-binary, trans, agnostic, atheist friends — anyone not identifying as a fundamentalist Muslim dedicated to the death of the West — off the roof of the nearest building. Allying themselves with a terrorist group that kills women who have been raped for bringing ‘dishonor’ to their families. That sells off girls as young as 6 into marriage for $2,000. That tortures, rapes and murders women who do not cover their heads. A group that embeds itself in schools and hospitals, and uses civilians as human shields. Yet at Columbia, ‘Trans People 4 Palestine’ have joined the pro-Gaza encampment, as have ‘Lesbians 4 Liberation’. How about they spend their summer vacation with their pals in Hamas? Take a little trip, see what it’s really like. At best, the ‘pro-Palestinian’ protestors are useful idiots of Islamism — doubtless recruited through TikTok, which recently gave birth to the Gen Z ‘awakening’ that Osama bin Laden had some really good points. One would think the presidents of top universities would be despondent and outraged — if not by violent antisemitism, then by such gross, jaw-dropping stupidity, by such a deficit of critical thinking among America’s ostensible best and brightest. Then again, Columbia countenanced over 100 of its professors signing an open letter of support for students who backed Hamas’ ‘military action’ against Israel, arguing that they merely sought to ‘recontextualize the events of October 7’. The university also did nothing in February as fliers depicting Jews as skunks — echoing Nazi propaganda during World War II — went up all over campus. ‘If any other group was depicted as animals,’ assistant Columbia professor Shai Davidai wrote on X, ‘the school would have already called the FBI to investigate.’ Davidai, who is Israeli-born and an outspoken pro-Israel voice on campus, said Monday that his Columbia ID had been deactivated — and told by university officials that it was for his own safety. Meanwhile, the pro-Hamas protesters on campus had no problem gaining entry and expanding their tent city. If this were any other marginalized group being targeted — black or gay people, trans, non-binary, differently-abled — such hatred and intimidation at America’s top universities would have been snuffed out in its cradle. Coordinated, systemic attacks on any other cohort would be the top story of outrage in every left-leaning outlet. Full-throated condemnations would be heard from such liberal icons as the Obamas and the Clintons. Instead, we get crickets. Instead, we get wall-to-wall coverage of the Trump trial as the true threat to American democracy and freedom. Here is a sampling of the cheers and chants at Columbia: ‘We are all Hamas, pig!’ To Jewish students: ‘Go back to Poland! Get the hell out of here!’ ‘[Hamas] make us proud. Take another soldier out. Burn Tel Aviv to the ground’. And this, claimed by the left to have ‘multiple interpretations’ — but, as they well know, is nothing but a call for the elimination of Israel: ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!’ Imagine if students set up a white supremacist camp, donning white robes and hoods and yelling, ‘We are all the KKK!’ and telling black students to ‘go back to Africa!’ It’s impossible to imagine, because it would never be tolerated. Ever, ever, ever. So far, John Fetterman is the only Democrat, in the House or the Senate, to demand that Shafik resign. ‘These ‘protests’ are antisemitic, unconscionable and dangerous’, Fetterman said. How has this become an outlying position on the left? To wit: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, that bottom-feeding Democratic socialist from New York, praised these pro-Hamas protestors Monday. ‘It is especially important that we remember the power of young people shaping this country today, of all days,’ she said — again, on the first day of Passover — ‘as we once again witness the leadership of those peaceful student-led protests on campuses like Columbia, Yale, Berkeley and many others.’ Tell that to the Columbia students who held Israeli flags while a protester – oh-so bravely masked, as most of them are – stood in front of them, holding a sign that read, ‘[Hamas’] Next Targets’. This rabid, unchecked antisemitism has spread to at least 13 U.S. college campuses, including Yale, M.I.T. (whose Jewish president Sally Kornbluth remains standing, despite testifying before Congress last year that ‘calls for the genocide of Jews’ really depend on ‘context’), Berkeley, Harvard, and NYU, where police arrested more than 150 protestors Monday night. On Tuesday, Columbia announced that all classes would go remote for the remaining school year. Have none of these university leaders learned that you don’t negotiate with terrorists? On this crisis, New York City’s mayor Eric Adams is a lone voice of sanity and decency. ‘I am horrified and disgusted with the antisemitism being spewed at and around the Columbia University campus,’ he said in a statement. ‘Supporting a terrorist organization that aims to kill Jews is sickening and despicable.’ New York has more Jews than any city outside of Israel. If such antisemitism is allowed — encouraged, really — to flourish here, America is in for a summer of hate. It will be a replay of 2020’s BLM mayhem, looting and rioting and violence in the name of social justice, cities on fire while a liberal media tells us all is well. Campus protesters have already announced their next target: the Democratic National Convention. Of course, this has come as a surprise to Camp Biden, an administration that, just three weeks after October 7, announced the ‘first-ever National Strategy to Counter Islamophobia in the United States.’ To those who ask what the federal government can actually do right now — well, a lot. In 1957, amid segregationist protests, President Eisenhower sent the army to protect black female high school students in Arkansas. In 1965, President Johnson federalized the Alabama National Guard to protect Civil Rights marchers led by Martin Luther King. Yet Biden remains cowed by his own party, overtaken as it is by anti-Israel and antisemitic sentiment. It should not be this hard for a sitting U.S. president to stand up for what is so clearly right, but Biden, in more ways than one, is feeble. We are now witnessing the only rational outcome for the woke left, eaten by the monster its own orthodoxy has created. Generations of college students indoctrinated by ‘right think’ and political correctness, a kind of mono-intellectualism that considers morality relative, white people the devil, and America a scourge. This is nothing short of a complete, system-wide failure of academia. And make no mistake: The longer these universities tacitly endorse antisemitism, they are fomenting violence. It’s only a matter of time before something truly tragic and wholly preventable happens — riots, grave injuries, the death of Jews on American soil. And the powers that be, Shafik among them, will have blood on their hands — if not their conscience.
