(LifeSiteNews) - Attempts by the LGBT movement to indoctrinate children are now so brazen it is breathtaking. A recent example posted to Twitter by Abigail Shrier is one of the creepiest videos I have ever seen. A man in drag with a smile resembling a leer, lipstick, nail polish and green eye shadow announces that he wants to speak to the children.
"Parents, watch the video and then hand the video over to the young kids," the activists announced. "Hi there! I get asked a lot: ‘Are you a boy or a girl?' I love that question, and so I wanted to just tell you sometimes human beings are more than boy or girl. Sometimes we're something else. Sometimes we're both. Sometimes we kind of float in between and sometimes we're a boy and sometimes we're a girl. Because human beings are creatures and we're wild and exciting
"Hand the video over to the young kids." You can't get a more explicit ask than that, can you? Hand the video over to the young kids so a drag queen can confuse them about gender and teach his ideology to your children. Absolutely disgusting.
But a quick survey of current media coverage proves that this is not an aberration. Consider this garbage, from NPR:
Calvin was always a boy - but the world did not recognize him that way.
That's the story in the new children's book Calvin. Authors JR and Vanessa Ford show how their young protagonist navigates the complicated feelings of being a transgender kid and how he comes into expressing who he really is, with illustrations from Kayla Harren.
The Fords are also parents to two children, one who is trans and inspired this book. Ellie first raised the topic shortly after their 5th birthday - the family is now six years into their journey.
NPR then quotes Vanessa Ford describing the first time they introduced their 5-year-old to the term transgender:
[W]hen we finally used the word, Ellie's breath took out all the air in the room and they said, "That's who I am. There's a word for who I am." And so some of this is that our children may not have the language to describe how they feel or how they identify, and sometimes having that language can be incredibly empowering.
Count me skeptical. A 5-year-old breathlessly gasping "there's a word for who I am" and realizing they are transgender? Yeah, right.
But this is happening with thousands of kids across the United States and Canada. The reality is that for the first time in the history of Western civilization, children are being told that their genitals may be irrelevant to their gender. They are being told - "hand the video over to the young kids!" - that "sometimes human beings are more than a boy or a girl." They are told that there are endless options, and that they can choose for themselves. They are told they can be whoever they want to be, even if it is not who they are.
As Abigail Shrier has detailed in her bookIrreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, we are doing incalculable and life-long damage to the youngest and most vulnerable members of our society. We are allowing drag queens, LGBT activists and an assortment of eunuchs and cross-dressers to teach our children about sexuality and gender.
Do not give your kids phones. Monitor their Internet use. Pull them out of public school. Check which books they take out of the library. And recognize that trans activists want access to your kids so that they can teach the children their ways. This is not a conspiracy theory. This is their stated intention.
