Svensk børnehave afskaffer drenge og piger
Børnehave i Stockholm vil undgå stereotype kønsroller med særligt legetøj og debat.

Man kan også gå for langt i sine bestræbelser på at sikre ligestilling mellem kønnene.
Sådan lyder det i Sverige, hvor en børnehave er blevet genstand for en heftig diskussion, skriver nyhedsbureauet AP.
Personalet i Egalia-børnehaven, der åbnede sidste år, undgår bevidst at omtale børnene som piger og drenge, men refererer i stedet for til børnene som 'venner' eller det kønsneutrale 'hen' i stedet for han eller hende.
Forskellige kønsroller er ikke problematiske, så længe de ikke bliver værdsat forskelligt
Tanja Bergkvist, blogger
Og den tankegang går igen overalt i børnehaven, hvor såvel bøger, indretning af lokaler og legetøj er udvalgt, så man undgår at børnene udvikler stereotype billeder af kønnene.
»Samfundet forventer, at piger er søde og kønne, mens drenge skal være mandige, hårdføre og udadvendte«, forklarer den 31-årige Jenny Johnson fra børnehaven.
»Egalia tilbyder dem en fantastisk mulighed for at være lige præcis dem, de selv ønsker at være«, siger hun.
Ansætter køns-pædagoger
Den skattefinansierede daginstitution er for børn i alderen et til seks år. Den ligger i Södermalm-distriktet i Stockholm.
Institutionen er et billede på, hvor langt vore svenske naboer er gået i bestræbelserne på at sikre ligestilling mellem kønnene.
DEBAT»Kvindeundertrykkelse eksisterer ikke længere«
Kontroversiel. Leder af Egalia Lotta Rajalin fortæller, at personalet blandt andet er blevet truet på grund af den særlige, kønsneutrale pædagogik i børnehaven. Foto: AP.
Det sker blandt andet ved i børnehaver og på skoler at ansætte kønspædagoger, som hjælper personalet med at opdage sprog og opførsel, der risikerer at skabe stereotype kønsroller.
Tiltag som det i Egalia-børnehaven har fået nogle forældre til at stille spørgsmål ved, om man er gået for langt i korstoget for ligestilling. De frygter blandt andet, at børnene vil få en skæv opfattelse af virkeligheden uden for børnehaven.
»Forskellige kønsroller er ikke problematiske, så længe de ikke bliver værdsat forskelligt«, siger den 37-årige blogger Tanja Bergkvist, der er en af de mest markante stemmer i debatten om det, hun betegner som 'køns-hysteriet' i Sverige.
Mandlige giraffer kan også få unger
Kritikken bider dog ikke på ledelsen i Egalia. Her leger børnene med det samme lejetøj, drenge som piger.
Lego-kloderne er for eksempel bevidst placeret lige ved siden af institutionens køkken for at sikre, at børnene ikke udvikler mentale barrierer mellem det at kokkerere og at konstruere.
Institutionens leder, Lotta Rajalin, siger ifølge AP, at hun lægger særlig vægt på, at børnene udvikler tolerance for homoseksuelle, biseksuelle og transseksuelle, allerede fra de er helt små.
SIGNATURNu ryger mændene på møddingen
Som eksempel fremdrager hun en bog fra bogreolen i daginstitutionen om to mandlige giraffer, som er kede af, at de ikke har fået unger - lige indtil de falder over et efterladt krokodilleæg.
Lignende historier går igen i alle børnebøgerne i institutionen, mens man til gengæld går forgæves, hvis man leder efter eventyret om 'Snehvide og de syv små dværge' eller 'Askepot'.
Ligestilling. Lucia-bruden kan naturligvis også være en dreng, som 'Kalle' i historien her. Foto: AP.
Børn skal vælge selv
Ifølge Lotta Rajalin har institutionens kontroversielle metoder ført til trusler fra racister, som er harme over, at børnene leger med sorte dukker.
Alligevel er det både en eftertragtet arbejdsplads, ligesom svenske forældre står i kø for at få skrevet barnet op til en plads.
44-årige Jukka Koppi forklarer AP, at han og hans hustru valgte Egalia for at »give alle vores børn alle de muligheder, der eksisterer, på baggrund af dem, de er og ikke på baggrund af deres køn«.

Good Stuff

...down the street, towards them. "Look who it is", he says. "It’s the stranger". "Alright lads", I say, weaving through the crowd of massed drinkers on the pavement. "Have a good holiday?". What do you think?”. “Just what we expected”, laughs Jack. “I‘ll see you in a moment“. I walk into the pub and wait at the bar. It’s quite empty in here. There are posters for a band on the wall, who go by the name of The Tonics, a four piece in sharp suits with floppy haircuts, who I decide might be worth checking out later. In a few moments, I’m served, with an ice cold pint of Peroni, and am heading back out onto the street. RINGING IN MY EARS is the unmistakable sound of Hammond organ, which sends a shiver down my back and a buzz into my heart and tells me that the magic carpet ride has just begun. Jack turns, as I rejoin them. “Good time in Ibiza, was it?”, he asks. “Marvellous“. “It’s alright for some”, he says. “Jetting off somewhere hot. Well, you’re looking well on it, I have to say”. “Nice of you to say so”. “Bring me back a tan like that next time you go”. “I’ll see what I can do”. We laugh. It's warm tonight. For England. I stand and sip my lager and survey the scene. Girls are standing, alone and in groups, boys are leaning against the wall, gangs are hanging round, looking for something to take their attention. Some of them are talking on their mobile phones, others are texting. “So what’s been happening here?”,I ask. "You've not missed a lot, if I'm honest...

Persuasive Essay On Year Round School

...School Hours Essay Yes, Schools in America should be year round for the following reasons. Year round school is in the best interest of communities because it saves money, increases learning, and is a comfortable schedule for students. First, we need to establish why the nine month schedule was established in the first place? The nine month schedule was made when the U.S. had mostly agriculture in the communities and the schedule let the kids be able to help their parents on the farms over the summer when they were needed. Now that most communities aren’t rural anymore this schedule is no longer needed. Next, the year round schedule saves money. How is this possible? This is possible because with the year round schedule there could be what...

Fantastic Ticket Sales

...Am I excited about it? Yes. Did I order tickets? Yes. Did I stay awake until 6am and beyond to order them? Yes. But the real question is; did I get a single ticket? No. So here I am, a raging sports enthusiast, without a single ticket. I love the Olympics! I’ve wanted to go since I was just 5 years old; and when it finally comes to London, the 150,000 tickets reserved for Britain, are squandered away to Europe just for more money! Disaster. How can anyone say it’s a remotely good system? It’s an absolute shamble. The ticket sales are more like a lottery and we know that no one ever wins that. Well; unless there are god damn lucky, filthy rich and can afford to bid for every single ticket possible! There could be a multitude of successful systems yet we insist on using this monstrosity! How do we expect to get anywhere when the ticket allocation team can’t even distribute them correctly OR evenly! A friend of mine has been given tickets to two events but here’s the funny part; they both start within half an hour of each other in different parts of London! This ticket distribution is ridiculous. I mean honestly, I could have designed a better system even though I find difficulties in distributing change to people! Why didn’t they just simplify it and have it so that each day a different event goes on sale and you have the whole day to bid, not just at 6am! Oh, and when there is a credit card glitch, the website stops the countdown so that you can actually still......

The Necklace

...The Necklace by Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893) Translators: Albert M.C. McMaster, A.E. Henderson, Mme. Quesada, & others. The girl was one of those pretty and charming young creatures who sometimes are born, as if by a slip of fate, into a family of clerks. She had no dowry, no expectations, no way of being known, understood, loved, married by any rich and distinguished man; so she let herself be married to a little clerk of the Ministry of Public Instruction. She dressed plainly because she could not dress well, but she was unhappy as if she had really fallen from a higher station; since with women there is neither caste nor rank, for beauty, grace and charm take the place of family and birth. Natural ingenuity, instinct for what is elegant, a supple mind are their sole hierarchy, and often make of women of the people the equals of the very greatest ladies. Mathilde suffered ceaselessly, feeling herself born to enjoy all delicacies and all luxuries. She was distressed at the poverty of her dwelling, at the bareness of the walls, at the shabby chairs, the ugliness of the curtains. All those things, of which another woman of her rank would never even have been conscious, tortured her and made her angry. The sight of the little Breton peasant who did her humble housework aroused in her despairing regrets and bewildering dreams. She thought of silent antechambers hung with Oriental tapestry, illumined by tall bronze candelabra, and of two great footmen in knee......

How to Raise Money Essay

...Combinator or individual angels, then (2) raise a few hundred thousand to a few million to build the company, and then (3) once the company is clearly succeeding, raise one or more later rounds to accelerate growth. Reality can be messier. Some companies raise money twice in phase 2. Others skip phase 1 and go straight to phase 2. And at Y Combinator we get an increasing number of companies that have already raised amounts in the hundreds of thousands. But the three phase path is at least the one about which individual startups' paths oscillate. This essay focuses on phase 2 fundraising. That's the type the startups we fund are doing on Demo Day, and this essay is the advice we give them. Forces Fundraising is hard in both senses: hard like lifting a heavy weight, and hard like solving a puzzle. It's hard like lifting a weight because it's intrinsically hard to convince people to part with large sums of money. That problem is irreducible; it should be hard. But much of the other kind of difficulty can be eliminated. Fundraising only seems a puzzle because it's an alien world to most founders, and I hope to fix that by supplying a map through it. To founders, the behavior of investors is often opaque—partly because their motivations are obscure, but partly because they deliberately mislead you. And the misleading ways of investors combine horribly with the wishful thinking of inexperienced founders. At YC we're always warning founders about this danger, and......
