4-H camp, sleeping arrangements, and “the gender you identify with”
We already told you about an inquiry by lieutenant governor candidate Allen Mashburn into DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) propaganda at statewide training sessions for 4-H counselors. The Montgomery County Republican (and pastor) raised his concerns with a number of legislators as well as state agriculture commissioner Steve Troxler.
Well, Mashburn appears to be doubling down with a new missive aimed at the same group PLUS state 4-H program director Dr. Mike Yoder.
This latest communication from Mashburn includes some curious extra detail:
[…] Further, there is much concern about the overnight housing stance that 4H has apparently adopted. The understanding is that you plan to allow kids to house with the gender they identify with rather than the biological gender of the child. This is reason for great concern on many levels.[…]

Christian children need not apply for 4H summer camps. Children are no longer a protected class. At least NC has one Republican willing to fight for what are legitimate concerns. Meanwhile, waiting for current leaders to respond might take awhile.
NC Extension Programs and 4-H are part of North Carolina State University, which has the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity devoted to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). Training and practice is imbedded in the Extension and 4-H programs. Their leaders show their preferred pronouns in signature lines. As a long time and active member of Extension, I dropped out when this became part of their programs and training.
NC needs legislation moving the 4H program to the Ag Dept. Universities are heavily infiltrated by the far left and not to be trusted. We also need to do what Florida is doing under deSantis and defund DEI in the university system.
This legislature under Moore and Berger defund DEI programs in NC Colleges and Universities???
This is the legislature that is putting people. on the boards of NC universities who are IMPLEMENTING these DEI programs.
People are so gullible.
So, is it going to be that NC 4H is going to be educating the future vegan beef growers? Say it ain’t so!!!!!
It’s interesting to see the level of concern that Lieutenant Governor candidate Allen Mashburn has regarding DEI propaganda at statewide training sessions for 4-H counselors. However, I’m curious about the additional detail he includes in his latest communication about the overnight housing stance that 4-H has apparently adopted. While I understand the concern about allowing kids to house with the gender they identify with rather than their biological gender, I wonder what the potential solutions are for accommodating all children in a safe and inclusive manner. Is there a way to balance the needs and comfort of all children, while still respecting their individual identities? It’s an important conversation to have and I hope that a resolution can be reached that ensures all children feel safe and welcome in 4-H programs.
As the British National Health Service advised its doctors last year, most gender confused children grow out of it. Pushing them to freeze that temporary confusion is damaging. The NHS advised UK doctors not only to avoid surgery and drugs for gender confused children, but also not to even suggest different names or pronouns to them.
This “identity” and “inclusion” crap is just nonsense that is very damaging to children. The most productive thing to do is help encourage them to grow out of it and lead happy and productive lives as what they really are.
