The Woke Cult Has Targeted Your Children
The Woke Cult Has Targeted Your Children
Woke: The term of hipsterness we’ve all either snickered at or rolled our eyes over. However, the dreadful cuteness of the “woke” label distracts from the insidious ideology of intersectionality and that its True Believers are after your children.
It’s not like we haven’t discussed this before. Ideologues look for soft targets, people with no firm ideology of their own, to proselytize. In the market place of ideas, adults expect to run up competing points of view and to compare and contrast the merits.
What we don’t expect is to send our kids to public school to learn the three “Rs” and have them subjected to pseudo-religious indoctrination.
Children, in other words, are being taught to think constantly about race, and to feel guilty if they are the wrong one. And, of course, if they resist, that merely proves the point. A boy who doesn’t think he is personally responsible for racism is merely reflecting “white fragility” which is a function of “white supremacy.” QED.
An aside: Welcome back Andrew Sullivan. There was much to disagree on in the past, but for years you wandered the desert as Sarah Palin’s cyber-gynecologist. It’s nice to see you recognize the mugging from the Left has pushed you back to reality.
Sullivan even admits he may have gotten one of his recent opinion pieces wrong.
Last week, I defended drag queens reading stories to kids in libraries. I don’t take back my words. Getting children interested in reading with costumed clowns strikes me as harmless. But when I was directed to the website of Drag Queen Story Hours, I found the following:[DQSH] captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.
However well-meant, this is indoctrination into an ideology, not campy encouragement for reading and fun.
Baby-steps, Sully. Baby steps.
Why has Progressivism and its religious cult of intersectionality only now catching the attention of Liberals like Andrew Sullivan?
And then there is the disturbing “social justice” response to gender-nonconforming boys and girls. Increasingly, girly boys and tomboys are being told that gender trumps sex, and if a boy is effeminate or bookish or freaked out by team sports, he may actually be a girl, and if a girl is rough and tumble, sporty, and plays with boys, she may actually be a boy. […]
I don’t have children, but I sure worry about gay kids in this context. I remember being taunted by some other kids when I was young — they suggested that because I was mildly gender-nonconforming, I must be a girl. If my teachers and parents and doctors had adopted this new ideology, I might never have found the happiness of being gay and comfort in being male. How many gay kids, I wonder, are now being led into permanent physical damage or surgery that may be life-saving for many, but catastrophic for others, who come to realize they made a mistake. And what are gay adults doing to protect them? Nothing. Only a few ornery feminists, God bless them, are querying this.
Actually, if Sully looked beyond his own insular community, he would know that many people are alarmed by the push to chemically alter, or surgically mutilate, children in the name of transgenderism. Some have even lost their jobs for being not being 100% onboard with the “gender affirming” protocols. Such protocols being more politically based than what is in the patient’s best interest.
"It’s a strange kind of liberation to promote trans boy status for teenage girls who don’t fit the feminine norm, who feel pressured by expectations online and may take time to accept they are lesbian." https://t.co/DF86e7w08A @4th_WaveNow @PiqueResProject @genderhq

8. "Parents such as Denise, whose 22-yr-old daughter, Chiara, stopped ID'ing as trans before any medical treatment & came out as lesbian, are dismissed as bigoted, right wing or religious extremists. But anecdote suggests many parents of these teen girls are quite progressive." pic.twitter.com/O7nSa7cMs4

Even if you don’t have children in public school, this is your fight, too. It’s only our future at stake.
