As I studied about endtimes and the signs by which we would recognize them, there are many things that upset me. One such point I remember, which can no longer be found in the Bible, was the statement that in the last days men would be blood thirsty. I thought, yuck, surely not Lord. Surely we have progressed far beyond such disgusting things. But, sure enough, with the rise of witchcraft and satanism we have already witnessed modern vampirism, adrenachrome, ritual sacrifice along with even women and children partaking and eating human hearts. YUCK! YUCK!
One passage that really hits hard is the one that says the laat days will be worse than any before or that will ever be again. WOW! That is pretty harsh, when you think about some of the times in history that were extremely horrendous.
19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. Mark 13
“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Matthew 24:21
For years I was very consoled by the fact that our world had not yet fallen into that great a state of depravity. Afterall, I would remind myself, the bible says that when Lot took the two Angels into his home in Sodom, ALL the men of the City, infact it says all the people of the city, were pounding on Lot’s door and demanding that he deliver the two up to them so that they could “know” them (as in have sex with them). WHOA! That is serious. I mean, EVERY Man, even EVERY PERSON was so perverted they would tear down Lots house to get to them. We were far from the level of depravity.
BUT, here we are in this Postmodern, Godless era. This very thing could happen today. There are likely cities in the World today where every single person is that depraved.
How do you think a society gets to that point? Well, I am here to tell you that the very same demonic spirits that were working in Sodom and Gomorrah are working today not only in America but all across the Earth! People are being driven, coached, educated, deceived, corrupted and tempted into the very same mindset, attitudes, addictions and sins. It is being done very methodically and directed by spirits who know EXACTLY how to produce the affect they desire. They have repeating this same process over and over throughout the history of Earth.

Legislators in Congress as well as at the state and local level should heed the concerns of parents who oppose the imposition of SOGI curriculum through legislation, including through the Equality Act.
Parental Rights and Education
The Constitution protects parents’ fundamental right to control their own children’s education and upbringing. The Supreme Court has recognized and repeatedly reaffirmed this right. In the 1923 case Meyer v. Nebraska the court struck down a law prohibiting foreign language instruction in schools under the principle that parents’ wishes regarding their children’s education should trump the dictates of the state.
This decision was reaffirmed in Pierce v. Society of Sisters, which upheld the right of parents to send their children to religious schools. The court stated in this case:
The fundamental theory of liberty upon which all governments in this Union repose excluded any general power of the state to standardize its children…. The child is not the mere creature of the state; those who nurture him and direct his destiny have the right and the high duty, to recognize and prepare him for additional obligations.
Pierce v. Society of Sisters, 268 U.S. 510 (1925) at 535.
It is the prerogative of parents, not the state, to determine what children are taught about fundamental moral, religious, and philosophical issues.
Parents’ right to direct their children’s education has been recognized as particularly important with regard to sensitive topics such as sex education. To this end, 38 states and the District of Columbia require school districts to allow parental involvement in their sex education curriculum, 35 states and the District of Columbia allow parental opt-out, and four require parental opt-in prior to such instruction.
National Conference of State Legislators, “State Policies on Sex Education in Schools,” March 21, 2019, http://www.ncsl.org/research/health/state-policies-on-sex-education-in-schools.aspx (accessed April 24, 2019).
Details of opt-out laws vary by state, but Minnesota state law provides a good model. Parents are allowed to review educational materials and to arrange for alternative instruction if they object to its content.
Further, schools cannot penalize students for opting out or require parents to pay for alternative instruction.
Minn. Stat. 120B.20 (2018), https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/cite/120B.20 (accessed April 24, 2019).
Students, too, have constitutional rights to freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion. Schools may not force them to engage in activities that violate their consciences or endorse messages they find objectionable. Parents, not the government or schools, have the right to decide how and when to teach their children about topics such as gender and sexuality, and to teach them in accordance with their own moral or religious values.
The Equality Act Could Hasten the Nationwide Implementation of SOGI Curriculum
Around the country, five states and the District of Columbia have begun mandating SOGI curricula in sex education and history, while 10 others have explicitly prohibited it. If Congress enacts a federal law, it would usurp the states’ authority on the issue and undermine parental rights.
The law in New Jersey requires schools to include the “political, social, and economic contributions of…lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people” in “an appropriate place in the curriculum of middle school and high school students.” This means that it could be history—but it could be in other subjects as well.
The New Jersey initiative follows a California law which passed in 2012.

The Illinois state legislature recently also passed a history curriculum bill, evidence of a growing trend at the state level.
John Bowden, “Illinois House Votes to Require LGBT History Curriculum Be Taught in Schools,” The Hill, March 16, 2019, https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/434397-illinois-house-votes-to-require-lgbt-history-curriculum-be-taught-in (accessed April 24, 2019).
SOGI curriculum requirements have also been extended to sex education in numerous states and school districts. Since 2013, Colorado has required instruction on homosexual and bisexual conduct in sex education. A bill currently being considered by the state legislature would strip away the law’s exemptions for certain schools—and prohibit discussion of moral and religious perspectives and the promotion of abstinence.
Stephanie Currie, “Colorado Sex Ed Bill Would Force Kids to Learn LGBT Ideology, Ban Talk of Abstinence,” The Daily Signal, April 17, 2019, https://www.dailysignal.com/2019/04/17/colorado-sex-ed-bill-would-force-kids-to-learn-lgbt-ideology-ban-talk-of-abstinence/ (accessed April 24, 2019).
A common thread binding these laws is their lack of opt-out protections for parents or schools who object. The goal is to impose a particular ideology about sexuality and gender and silence dissent. If a federal law like the Equality Act passes adding sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classes in the 1964 Civil Rights Act, all 10 state laws currently prohibiting SOGI education could be overridden.
Section 5 of the Equality Act would amend Title IV in the Civil Rights Act, which required the desegregation of public education.
Equality Act, H.R. 5, 116th Cong., 1st Sess., https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/5 (accessed April 24, 2019).
The law currently prohibits segregation or discrimination against students in public schools on the basis of race, color, religion, or national origin. The Equality Act would add sexual orientation and gender identity as protected characteristics. The Civil Rights Act’s provisions on education were intended to address the demonstrated harms inflicted on African American students by racial segregation. In order to remedy this situation, courts in various desegregation cases required schools to remove racially biased educational materials, expand curricula to include black history, and remove other disparities.
See United States v. Bd. of Sch. Comm’rs of City of Indianapolis, Ind., 332 F. Supp. 655, 671 (S.D. Ind. 1971), aff’d, 474 F.2d 81 (7th Cir. 1973); Liddell v.

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a leading activist organization, already asserts that LGBT students “have been denied equal access to educational opportunities in schools in every part of our nation” and explicitly draws comparisons to the Civil Rights Act’s protections for characteristics such as race, sex, and national origin.
Human Rights Campaign, Student Non-Discrimination Act, December 21, 2018, https://www.hrc.org/resources/student-non-discrimination-act (accessed April 24, 2019).
This language, along with the Equality Act’s provision regarding the desegregation of schools could lead to incorporation of SOGI ideology into classrooms on a nationwide basis.
Federal courts could wrongly apply the same reasoning they used to mandate black history curricula to require curricula on sexual orientation and gender identity. Currently, LGBT activists argue that students who identify as transgender are being unfairly “segregated” in public school bathrooms and locker rooms from other students who share the same gender identity.
However, after Congress passed Title IX of the 1972 Educational Amendments to the Civil Rights Act, a regulation was issued, which states a school “may provide separate toilet, locker room, and shower facilities on the basis of sex”—and specifies only that “such facilities provided for students of one sex shall be comparable to such facilities provided for students of the other sex.”
C.F.R. Part 106, § 106.33, https://www2.ed.gov/policy/rights/reg/ocr/edlite-34cfr106.html (accessed May 5, 2019).
Similarly, the Supreme Court in United States v. Virginia recognized the legitimate need for sex-specific facilities due to privacy and safety. In her majority opinion that ordered the Virginia Military Institute to admit women, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote that it “would undoubtedly require alterations necessary to afford members of each sex privacy from the other sex in living arrangements.”
United States v. Virginia, 518 U.S. 515 (1996).
Neither members of Congress nor policymakers considered sex-specific intimate facilities unfairly discriminatory. However, they did recognize that segregation of bathrooms, locker rooms, and changing rooms by race was illegitimate because there is no rational basis for separation of the races. The only basis for racial segregation of intimate facilities was racial supremacy.
However, there are rational and commonsense reasons for separating the sexes. As Ryan T. Anderson has written, distinctions that are made on biological differences between male and female are based on valid privacy and safety concerns. They should not be conflated with laws requiring racial segregation, which are based on irrelevant distinctions between blacks and whites and serve no valid purpose.
Ryan T. Anderson, “Just Because Liberals Call Something Discrimination Doesn’t Mean It Actually Is,” March 2, 2017, https://www.heritage.org/gender/commentary/just-because-liberals-call-something-discrimination-doesnt-mean-it-actually (accessed May 5, 2019).
Should activist judges misappropriate the rationale from the civil rights cases mandating black history curriculum, they could also order schools to teach curriculum focusing on LGBT history or promoting transgender theory. Schools would, in effect, be forced to propagate the view that traditional beliefs regarding marriage, sexuality, and gender are bigoted and discriminatory, regardless of objections from parents.
Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) – Gov
Activist Groups and SOGI Curricula
A number of prominent national LGBT activist groups advocate the development and implementation of SOGI curricula. They further provide a significant amount of educational material, such as lesson plans for use by teachers and school districts. A substantial infrastructure is already in place for a potential federal expansion of SOGI curricula requirements. Many of these curriculum materials tout their alignment with Common Core requirements and other national standards, while the National Education Association—which wields considerable power over federal education policy—is a notable partner in the HRC’s efforts.
Elliot Kozuch, “HRC and NEA Sponsor National Day of Readings Supporting Transgender and Gender-Expansive Youth,” Febraury 7, 2019, https://www.hrc.org/blog/hrc-nea-sponsor-national-day-of-readings-in-support-of-trans-gender-ex (accessed May 13, 2019).
A project of the University of Colorado at Boulder’s School of Education dedicated to helping educators “queer” their teaching provides a revealing example of the eventual goal of these efforts. The group, which goes by the name “A Queer Endeavor,” states on their website: “To create school cultures that are not only ‘safe’ (as in, not dangerous), but also affirming of gender and sexual diversity, our approach moves beyond the anti-bullying discourse and works toward systemic change.” A teacher-contributed presentation directed at fellow educators specifies the importance of “incorporating gender and sexual diversity in THE CURRICULUM.”
“Gender and Sexual Diversity Teacher Institute,” https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/11Dbd4vAZ-3iGI3a8qNGJTIaE2OpiMCEpHpRSYsh_zwI/edit#slide=id.p9 (accessed April 24, 2019) (emphasis in original).
The goal is not equality or respect but forced ideological conformity via the content of the curriculum.
Sex education serves as the primary point of entry for incorporating SOGI ideology into curricula. A brief co-authored by the HRC; the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network (GLSEN); Planned Parenthood; and several other groups advocates that sex education include “information for all students about sexual orientation and gender identity that is medically accurate and age-appropriate.”
Human Rights Campaign et al., “A Call to Action: LGBT Youth Need Inclusive Sex Education,” https://www.hrc.org/resources/a-call-to-action-lgbtq-youth-need-inclusive-sex-education (accessed April 24, 2019).
The push to expand SOGI curriculum elements to other subject areas is evident from the same publication, despite its ostensibly narrow focus on sex education: Teachers are advised to incorporate SOGI ideology into other subjects “in order to better support LGBT students.” In addition, the GLSEN raises concerns that laws prohibiting LGBT sex education prevent teachers from including any positive portrayals of LGBT people or lifestyles in other subject areas.
GLSEN, “Laws that Prohibit the ‘Promotion of Homosexuality’: Impacts and Implications,” 2018, https://www.glsen.org/sites/default/files/GLSEN%20Research%20Brief%20-%20No%20Promo%20Homo%20Laws_1.pdf (accessed April 24, 2019).
If the Equality Act is signed into law, parents can expect to see this radical ideology incorporated into schools across the nation—beginning with sex education, and then extending further across subject areas.
It is clear that these groups mean to extend their efforts beyond sex education, which is subject to close scrutiny and protected by parental opt-out policies, in order to more effectively integrate their ideology across curricula. The HRC attempts to justify the inclusion of controversial material throughout the curriculum, claiming that “when educators discuss family diversity, they are not talking about sexuality––they are talking about understanding the importance of family, love and acceptance for everyone.”
Human Rights Campaign, “Responding to Concerns about LGBTQ Topics and Schools,” Welcoming Schools, http://www.welcomingschools.org/research/responding-to-concerns/ (accessed April 24, 2019).
Lesson plans and materials are provided for a wide range of subjects. Suggestions include highlighting LGBT history, which frequently involves dubious claims about the sexual orientation or gender identity of historical figures. For example, the GLSEN suggests that teachers “[a]cknowledge the gay identity of Francis Bacon (creator of the Scientific Method) or Frieda Kahlo’s bisexuality when studying their works,” though Bacon’s homosexuality is disputed and the relevance of Kahlo’s sexual orientation to her art is questionable.

Reading lists of LGBT-themed books are provided for all grade levels. Picture books such as I Am Jazz and Jacob’s New Dress explain to kindergarteners that it is possible for a girl to be born in a boy’s body, or vice versa. Even math and P.E. teachers are encouraged to seek opportunities to “combat binary ideas of gender” by including a variety of family structures in word problems

Also available are numerous lesson plans intended to teach students more directly about SOGI ideology, with alternative views presented as backwards and hateful. Graphics such as the “Gender Unicorn” (variants include the Genderbread Person and the Gender Snowperson) display gender, biological sex, and sexual orientation as existing on a spectrum, with students encouraged to mark their own self-identified location along it. Lessons on “family diversity,” rather than focusing on tolerance and respect for all students and families, paint as bigoted the belief that marriage is the union of a man and a woman and that children need a mother and father.

Another resource encourages teachers to answer young students’ questions about the meaning of terms such as “pansexual,” “non-binary,” and “sex assigned at birth” according to SOGI orthodoxy and use them as “teachable moments. (I want to know in what nightmare world are young children even exposed to this kind of terminology?)

Harms of SOGI Curriculum
While teaching students to treat others with dignity is a worthy goal, the true aim of SOGI curriculum is not to encourage respect but to inculcate a particular ideology regarding sex and gender, risking confusion and conflicts with parents’ values. The promotion of gender ideology to children as young as five understandably leaves kindergarten students confused about what it means to be a boy or a girl, as illustrated by an incident in Rocklin County, California.
As part of a kindergarten boy’s transition to a female gender identity, a teacher read two transgender-affirming children’s books to her kindergarten class, leading up to the transitioning student’s reappearance dressed as a girl. Parents were not notified or allowed to opt out, leading to outrage at a subsequent school board meeting. Parents reported that after being subjected to this material, their children came home distressed and confused about their own sex and whether they could choose their gender.
CBS News, “Transgender Reveal in Kindergarten Class Leaves Parents Feeling ‘Betrayed,’” August 22, 2017, https://www.cbsnews.com/news/transgender-reveal-kindergarten-class-rocklin-academy-parents-upset/ (accessed April 24, 2019).
It is difficult to discern any educational value in teaching young children such age-inappropriate and scientifically dubious concepts.
Parents are reasonably concerned that the promotion of radical gender ideology through school curriculum may also lead to an increased possibility that their children will experience gender dysphoria via social contagion. Brown University researcher Lisa Littman’s groundbreaking study documents the growing phenomenon of rapid-onset gender dysphoria (ROGD), in which youth who have shown no prior signs of discomfort with their biological sex suddenly identify themselves as transgender.
Lisa Littman, “Parent Reports of Adolescents and Young Adults Perceived to Show Signs of a Rapid Onset of Gender Dysphoria,” PLoS One, Vol. 13, No. 8 (2018), https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0202330 (accessed April 24, 2019).
The condition is primarily manifested in teenage girls, often with groups of friends coming out as transgender in close succession. Parents report that increased use of social media sites such as Tumblr and YouTube, which host large amounts of content promoting transition, preceded their children’s announcements, which were followed by increased hostility toward and isolation from parents. Littman theorizes that ROGD may in fact be a form of peer contagion or a maladaptive coping mechanism to normal stresses of teenage life.
This theory is supported by the increasingly common occurrence of a single school or region suddenly reporting a significantly higher than average percentage of transgender students.
The introduction of SOGI curricula, which promote the idea that gender is fluid and subjective, will exacerbate this situation, with vulnerable teenagers being taught that they can change their sex at will and that doing so is a sure path to acceptance among their friends and support from teachers and administrators.
Research shows that gender dysphoria in children and teenagers frequently resolves on its own over time. According to the American Psychiatric Association, up to 98 percent of pre-pubertal boys and up to 88 percent of pre-pubertal girls who experience gender dysphoria will naturally resolve their dysphoria as they mature.
See American Psychiatric Association, Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th ed., 2013, https://www.psychiatry.org/psychiatrists/practice/dsm (accessed March 22, 2019), and American College of Pediatricians, “Gender Ideology Harms Children,” September 2017, https://www.acpeds.org/the-college-speaks/position-statements/gender-ideology-harms-children (accessed March 22, 2019).
However, another study showed that nearly 100 percent of those children who begin puberty-blocking hormones go on to take cross-sex hormones.

However, transgender activists and transgender-affirming medical professionals advocate radical hormonal and surgical interventions for children exhibiting signs of gender dysphoria. This includes cross-sex hormones starting at age eight and “gender-confirmation” surgery at 18.

There is evidence that girls as young as 13 have been given double mastectomies in an effort to “reassign their sex.”

Contrary to activists’ claims, these experimental procedures are not, in fact, harmless and easily reversible. In reality, they can lead to sterility and increased risk of cancer, among other potential issues.
This, in turn, will lead to increased pressure on parents to approve “gender-affirming” medical treatment, with the threat of state intervention for those who dissent. The Equality Act could also ban any counselor from helping children who struggle with gender dysphoria to become comfortable with their own bodies. Section 7 of the Equality Act’s findings label such counseling discriminatory “conversion therapy.”
“The discredited practice known as ‘conversion therapy’ is a form of discrimination that harms LGBT people by undermining individuals[’] sense of self worth, increasing suicide ideation and substance abuse, exacerbating family conflict, and contributing to second class status.” See Equality Act, H.R. 5, § 2 (a)(7).
In one case in the United States, the parents of a 17-year-old girl in Ohio lost custody of their daughter due to their refusal to allow her to undergo a medical transition, including the administration of testosterone.

In a recent case in Canada, a father was prohibited from referring to his 14-year-old daughter using female pronouns or seeking to persuade her to abandon cross-sex hormone treatment on pain of being found guilty of “family violence.”

Rather than promoting greater tolerance and respect via SOGI curriculum, the Equality Act would push children into ideologically motivated “gender-affirmative treatment” and punish parents who dissent.
Successful Parental Opposition to SOGI Curriculum
In states and school districts that have already mandated the use of SOGI curriculum in schools, parents have protested. School districts in Northern Virginia have provided a laboratory for a number of these educational experiments.
A representative incident occurred earlier this year in Arlington, Virginia. Ashlawn Elementary School invited an activist to read a children’s book promoting transgender ideology to a kindergarten class shortly after a similar event at a nearby school was cancelled due to parental objections. Ashlawn parents were given less than a week’s notice of the reading, were not afforded the opportunity to opt out, and received the notifying letter only in English, despite the fact that a significant portion of Ashlawn parents are not native English speakers and bilingual communication is standard.
The district is further considering implementing a wide-ranging SOGI policy that includes access to restrooms, locker rooms, and sports teams based on gender identity rather than biological sex, as well as requiring SOGI curriculum in all schools.
Maria Keffler, “Gender Politics Don’t Belong in the Classroom, But Title IX Protections Do,” The Washington Post, April 5, 2019, https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/local-opinions/gender-politics-dont-belong-in-the-classroom-but-title-ix-protections-do/2019/04/05/1cd1a156-5561-11e9-9136-f8e636f1f6df_story.html?utm_term=.c3a44e632977 (accessed April 24, 2019).
Many attempts have been made in the U.S. and internationally to implement SOGI curriculum similar to that which could be mandated by the Equality Act. In some instances, vocal opposition from parents led to substantial changes to or reversals of the offending policies. In California, parents have recently protested a proposed framework for sex and health education that provides information and ideology they describe as “too much, too soon” and its lack of effective opt-out opportunities.

Similar scenarios have played out across the country. The similarity of two incidents in different states three years apart reveal an ongoing pattern similar to the one on display in Arlington County.
In Wisconsin in 2015, one school district was forced to cancel a reading of I Am Jazz planned as part of a transgender student’s transition due to a threatened lawsuit from parents who were given insufficient advance notification.

Three years later in Michigan, parents protested a videotaped reading of the same book, which had been conducted with little advance notice and no opt-out.

In Arlington County, Virginia, as referenced above, children were exposed to material promoting transgender ideology with no opt-out provided. Maria Keffler, a former teacher whose children attend Arlington Public Schools, penned an op-ed for the Washington Post addressing the controversy, stating “Parents—not school systems—should hold authority over what their children learn about sexuality and gender and when.”

Incidents abroad provide both a glimpse of the possibilities for schools affected by legislation such as the Equality Act—and the potential for concerned parents to challenge them. In 2015, a controversial sex education curriculum that required students to be taught about sexual orientation and gender identity was implemented in Ontario, Canada. This sparked protests across the Canadian province, both from conservative religious groups and Canadians of Middle Eastern and Asian descent who raised cultural and religious objections. A number of parents organized a strike, pulling their children from the schools affected by the policy. The outcry led to the eventual reversal of the policy in 2018.

Similarly, the implementation of SOGI curriculum was delayed in Birmingham, England, after hundreds of Muslim parents withdrew their children from school for a day in protest. School officials agreed to consult with parents regarding the age-appropriateness of the content as well as considering the religious beliefs of students.
Nazia Parveen, “Birmingham School Stops LGBT Lessons After Parents Protest,” The Guardian, March 4, 2019, https://www.theguardian.com/education/2019/mar/04/birmingham-school-stops-lgbt-lessons-after-parent-protests (accessed April 24, 2019).
In each of these cases, the informed and persistent opposition of parents was key to raising awareness of the potential harms of SOGI curriculum in schools—and in many cases succeeded in forcing a reevaluation of the planned lessons.
The Equality Act attempts to impose a one-size-fits-all model for SOGI curriculum across the nation, driven by activist pressures rather than the needs and preferences of students and parents. Members of Congress, state legislators, and local school boards should listen to parents who oppose bills like the Equality Act that would impose radical ideology on the country’s most impressionable population—students.
Editor’s Note: The staff member who wrote this article is a former school teacher and understands the challenges educators and school librarians face. To clarify, we are not against books that represent diverse points of view in any way. We simply believe that pornography in books can be just as harmful as pornography in videos and that books in school libraries should not contain pornographic material. If a passage cannot be read out loud at a public forum because it contains obscene and graphic descriptions of sex, we don’t think that content should be available at a school library. We stand for a parent’s right to speak up and this article encourages civil and respectful discourse.
In the past year and a half we’ve seen a rise in parents speaking up against sexual content in school books–on the shelves of school libraries, in electronic libraries, on recommended reading lists, and even on required reading lists.
In this article we’ll cover:
- sexual content found in books in school districts across the nation,
- the responsibility of school districts to provide age-appropriate materials,
- the harms of exposing children to sexualized content,
- tips for previewing books,
- talking points for discussing this topic with your child, and
- suggestions for speaking up.
Sexual content in school books
In January, The New York Times reported “Parents, activists, school board officials and lawmakers around the country are challenging books at a pace not seen in decades. The American Library Association said in a preliminary report that it received an ‘unprecedented’ 330 reports of book challenges, each of which can include multiple books, last fall.”
A quick internet search will yield dozens of news stories from the current school year about how parents are objecting to the sexual content in books at their children’s schools. (Hallelujah!)
Here are a few examples:
- Virginia Fairfax County school system pulled two books from their library shelves after a mother questioned the school board about why sexually explicit books were available at the school library. As reported in U.S. News, the book Lawn Boy, ”…an illustrated memoir, contains explicit illustrations of oral sex and masturbation.” Gender Queer “…contains graphic descriptions of sex between men and children.” As the mother read excerpts to the school board to prove her point, the school board members interrupted her when she read the graphic passages aloud because it was inappropriate for a school board meeting. They immediately removed the books. Then, as they do with all challenges, the school board created a committee to review the books. Unfortunately, the committee made the decision to reinstate these two books to school library shelves–available to kids in grades 7-12.
- Indiana Parents of Carmel Clay Schools spoke up at a school board meeting regarding books with sexual content available to all kids–including Kindergartners. In an interview with a local television station, one dad said, “If I were to read it to you, you would not be able to air it because it would be against FCC obscenity laws.” He said parents did read passages during the school board meeting and that “…everyone was uncomfortable–and these were adults.”
- Texas A mother in the Leander Independent School District spoke up against books on a list of recommended options for student-led book clubs. The books in question “…feature strong profanity and obscene sexual scenes.” One of the books, In the Dream House, is “…a very detailed memoir about a violent same-sex relationship.” Another book, Lolita, “…is a 1950s-era book about a 37-year-old man’s obsession and inappropriate relations with a 12-year-old girl.” After the school board meeting, a petition was started. One signer commented, “As a healthcare professional, I’ll just point out the obvious: The above content presented to a minor constitutes sexual abuse and should be reported as such.”
The list goes on and on as parents across the nation take a stand.
Schools should provide age-appropriate material
While many of the stories in the news are calling for more widespread banning of books that present diverse viewpoints, we are not calling for a ban on books that present ideas or values that are different from our own. We are merely asking for age-appropriate learning materials.
All educators take classes in childhood development. Providing age and developmentally appropriate materials is critical in education.
One mother in Texas stated, “We are asking for age-appropriate reading material that advances independent thought and critical thinking. … Netflix uses maturity ratings and classifications so that viewers can, and I quote, ‘make informed viewing choices for you and your family.’” We are asking for no less than that for our students.
One dad in Montana stated that the books in question in his district constitute pornography. “If I stood outside of that school and handed out pornographic materials, I would go to jail. And it seems odd to me that these books would be in our school libraries for everybody to access.”
The harms of exposing children to sexually explicit materials
Pornography is most often thought to be pictures or videos of nudity or sexual acts. But the depiction of those sexual acts in animated content (such as cartoons and video games) and in literature is also pornography.
The American Bar Association states that “Exposure to pornography harms children and youth by normalizing sexual violence, creating unrealistic expectations for intimate partners and relationships, and increasing the risk of addiction.”
That happens whether it’s a graphic video or an explicit passage in a book. To find out more about the harmful effects of erotic lit and pornography, see these articles:

Defending our kids from sexual content in books at school
One mom had a goal when her children were young that she would preview every book before her kids read it. But when her oldest started reading on his own, she quickly realized that her voracious reader consumed books far faster than she could possibly keep up with.
Her goal then became to at least read reviews of each book before he read it. But he would often check out a book at school, read the entire thing during the day, then return it and check out a new one before ever coming home.
It was soon obvious that she could not possibly screen every book he read. It was not a sustainable ideal. But what if he picked up a book with inappropriate content? We’ve learned that even the school library shelves can’t be trusted.
While we do encourage parents to pay attention to what their kids are reading, it’s a nearly impossible task to keep up on it all.
So what are parents to do?
Tips for previewing books
Though it’s not possible to read or review every book your child ever reads, it’s still ideal to have an idea of what your kids are reading.
Here are a few tips:
1. When possible, look at book reviews for required and recommended reading lists. Ask your children to bring books home that they are reading in class. Flip through the book and skim a few random passages.
2. Do random checks of the books your child is bringing home from the school library or reading electronically.
3. Ask your child questions about the book. See our talking points below.
Talking points for discussing books with your child
Again, if your child loves to read, it’s nearly impossible to read every book they ever read. Even if you manage to read reviews for every book, review sites don’t always have the same definition of what’s age appropriate as you do.
That’s why it’s so important to empower your child with a warning about sexual content in books and a plan for what to do when they encounter it.
Here are some talking points:
1. Talk to your child about pornography in an ongoing conversation. Kids need to be equipped with these 3 defensive tools: an age-appropriate definition, a warning and a plan. Emphasize that they are not bad and won’t be in trouble when they are exposed to pornography.
Not sure how to start? Here are some resources to help you approach this topic in age-appropriate ways for kids ages 3-12 and beyond:
- Our most popular free guide How to Talk to Kids About Pornography
- The best-selling Good Pictures Bad Pictures series of read aloud books
- Our parent and teacher-approved Brain Defense: Digital Safety course
2. In your discussions about pornography, be sure to emphasize that it’s not just pictures and videos. Pornography includes animation, video games, and written stories. Come up with a plan for what to do if they are reading a book that has sexual content. The above mentioned resources will help you make a plan with your kids.
3. Ask your kids about the books they are reading. Use language that’s appropriate for their age. For example:
- What’s this book about?
- What’s happening in the story?
- Tell me about the main characters.
- Is there anything you’ve read in the book that makes you feel uncomfortable?
- For older kids, ask directly if the book contains depictions of sexual acts.

“Parents are desperate for concepts and language like this to help their children. They would benefit so much from this program – and I think it would spur much needed conversations between parents and children.” –Jenet Erikson, parent
What can parents do if they find sexual content available at their school?
We want to make clear here that we love educators. They are increasingly overburdened with responsibilities. Just like you can’t read every book your child reads, teachers and librarians can’t read every book on the shelves at the school. They rely on approved reading lists from the district or state level and on online reviews. Are there educators who are crossing the line? Probably. But please give the benefit of the doubt and approach educators with kindness when addressing this issue.
Tips for speaking up against sexual content in school books:
1. Be involved at your child’s school before there’s a problem. If you have the time, volunteer at your school in some capacity–help in your child’s classroom, chaperone field trips, be part of the PTA/PTO, help with a club or sports team or a single event at the school. When you’ve established a good relationship with people at the school, it’s much easier to bring up a concern and they’re more likely to take action. We understand many parents can’t spend a lot of time at the school, but anything you can do to have positive interactions there before bringing a complaint will be to your advantage.
2. Calmly and kindly speak with the teacher, advisor, librarian, or administrator.
- If the book is required reading for a class or club, calmly express your concerns to the teacher or advisor. Ask if the book is required by the district or school curriculum or if it is a book the teacher chose themselves. Request an alternate assignment.
- If the book is on a recommended list or found in the physical or electronic library of a school, speak with the librarian. Ask who chooses the books for the list or collection. Express your concerns about the book. Ask for a specific remedy. “Can this title be removed from our school library?”
- If you speak to the teacher in person, be sure to send a follow-up email copying an administrator so there’s a record of the conversation.
- Have a follow-up conversation about the book with the school’s administrator. If the book was chosen by a teacher or librarian at the school, ask for the book to be removed. If they refuse to do so or if it is part of a district-approved curriculum or on a district-approved list, then your next step is to address it with the school board.
3. Do your homework
- Note specific pages and paragraphs that aren’t age-appropriate.
- Enlist other parents to help you look at other books in the course, program or library where the material was found. Talk with the school’s PTA/PTO presidency to see if they will get involved.
- Find out what your school and/or district’s policy is for reviewing books used in classes and libraries. Is there a district-wide approved reading list or can teachers assign any book?
- Start a petition asking for a committee to review the books in question as well as to create a district-wide approved list if there isn’t one already. There are many online petitions available–like Change.org–that make gathering signatures easier than ever.
4. Address your school board
- Find out the date and time of the next school board meeting where you can make public comments. Register to comment ahead of time if needed.
- Enlist other parents to sign up to speak on the topic as well and others who will just come to show they support your statements.
- Prepare and practice your statement. Public commenters are often limited to only a couple of minutes. Be sure to clearly and calmly articulate the problem and cite specific examples. Reading the actual passages makes people uncomfortable and that only strengthens your argument. Watch videos of other parents commenting on this topic as you prepare. In addition to some that were in the news stories we referenced at the beginning of this article, here’s a great example from a mom in Dallas.
- Share your petition asking for a committee to review the books and to create a district-wide approved list. Request to be on that committee.
- Follow up. Return to future meetings and ask what action has been taken to correct this problem.
Demand better for our kids
Books containing graphic, violent sexual content normalize harmful sexual behaviors, and we owe it to our children and our communities to speak up. It’s amazing what one motivated parent can accomplish.
To defend the kids in your life against graphic sexual content in books, remember–
- Converse with your child about the books they read.
- Speak up with civility, grace and conviction when you find books that have sexually harmful content.
- Enlist other parents to help you address the school board.

THIS IS CALLED GROOMING & THEY’RE USING PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO DO IT. PARENTS SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR TURNING A BLIND EYE TO THIS EVIL. THEY WILL ANSWER TO GOD FOR IT ALL ON JUDGEMENT DAY.🔥🔥🔥
REVELATION 21:8But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
1 CORINTHIANS 6:9-10Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
EPHESIANS 5:5For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.✝️✝️✝️

This week, thousands of taxpayer-funded K-12 school librarians across the state gathered in Fort Worth at a conference that celebrated hazardous sexual behaviors and defended offering sexually explicit books to students.
The Texas Library Association’s annual conference this week hosted a variety of eyebrow-raising activities, with featured speakers such as Dr. Ibram X. Kendi (an apologist for the hotly contentious critical race theory ideology), as well as adult entertainers Justin Johnson and Joseph Hoselton. Johnson and Hoselton headlined TLA’s “After Hours Keynote” and “Drag Queen Story Hour” events.
“WE LOVE @AlyssaEdwards_1 at @TXLA!!! #TexasQueen #TxLA22,” tweeted public elementary school librarian Carolyn Slavin.
“The @AlyssaEdwards_1 After Hours event was exactly what I needed,” added high school librarian Rachael Welsh.
It’s unclear if TLA—the largest state library association in the U.S. with more than 6,000 members from taxpayer-funded school and government libraries—considered showcasing any other “adult entertainers” in addition to the crossdressers.
TLA’s conference also included sessions on promoting LGBT sexual behaviors and keeping controversial pornographic materials on kids’ school bookshelves. One such book is “Gender Queer,” a graphic novel aimed at young adult readers and depicting explicit illustrations of two adolescent boys performing various sex acts.
“Maia Kobabe’s Gender Queer is 2021’s most challenged book. Winner of an Alex Award and a Stonewall Award. Find resources to defend this graphic novel in your schools and libraries,” posted American Library Association’s “Office for Intellectual Freedom,” which presented on the topic at the conference.
“Why would you defend this?” replied one citizen, who shared obscene screenshots from the book.
Additionally, TLA instructed librarians how to teach young children to be “fluent in the language and ideas of social justice”—a buzzword for leftist ideologies such as critical race theory, which states that individuals should be promoted or punished because of the color of their skin.
Meanwhile, outside the conference hall, parents across Texas are asking school officials to do the exact opposite: stop forcing LGBT sexual conduct and racist ideologies on kids, and remove books that graphically illustrate or depict pedophilia between teachers and students, incest, rape, sex acts between minors, and other explicit scenes.
“These are not nonfiction sex education books; these pose no direct educational use. These are books that should be in an adult section of Barnes & Noble, but unfortunately, they’re in our libraries,” said Fredericksburg parent Tara Petsch, who recently organized the community to speak out to the school district.
“We’ve never asked for book banning. We’ve never asked for book burning. We’ve asked for book boundaries. We want age-appropriate books in our children’s libraries. That’s all we’re asking,” Tara continued, adding, “Newspapers can’t print this material, and you’d be arrested if you gave it to a child on the street. So, why is this in our children’s library?”
The TLA also started a “grassroots coalition” to keep such materials available to kids at school. It’s unclear whether the organization would again recruit drag queens to host those story times.
Citizens concerned about their local school districts sending librarians to the TLA conference on the taxpayers’ dime may contact their local school board.
As the LGBTQ agenda has been front and center during Pride Month in June, the American Family Association (AFA, afa.net) is alerting parents about the concerted effort to normalize homosexuality, same-sex marriage and the transgender lifestyle to the country’s youngest citizens.
“Parents beware,” said AFA President Tim Wildmon, “the LGBT social-political agenda is out there. We all see it every day, but it is targeting our children and teenagers, and the agenda is being promoted in the mainstream popular culture. These recruiting efforts are aimed at children and teens because they are impressionable. Many adults may not change their minds on the issue, so the agenda is being pushed through previously unconventional means, such as kids’ television programming, clothing, shoes, teen magazines, blockbuster movies and even public libraries. Leaders and advocates of this agenda have been thinking ahead for many years, ultimately working toward the end game of having young people eventually vote for pro-LGBT policies at the ballot box.”
AFA is pointing to several examples of an agenda-driven assault on young Americans:
This spring, the tax-funded PBS Kids aired a gay marriage on the Arthur cartoon. For its season premiere, the animated series revealed that one of its longtime main characters and Arthur’s teacher, Mr. Ratburn, was gay and getting married.
Target department stores are not only offering clothing and accessories for both adults and children to celebrate the gay lifestyle, but the company has also pledged to donate $100,000 to the Gay, Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN), an organization whose primary focus is instructing school-aged students about how to create “gay” clubs in public schools across the nation. For more than two years, AFA has led the #BoycottTarget initiative due to the retailer’s dangerous ill-advised restroom and fitting room policy that opens the door to voyeurs in the name of political correctness.
Converse exploited an 11-year-old boy, Desmond, who describes himself as a “drag kid,” to show the company is “connected to the LGBTQ+ community” and to promote its “Pride Collection.” Child Protective Services investigated the boy’s family after a video of him performing in drag at a gay club in Brooklyn surfaced. This comes at a time, reports AFA’s blog site, The Stand, when children are being bombarded with the idea that they have the right to control their “sexuality.” For instance, Teen Vogue recently published an op-ed on “Why Sex is Real Work” in an attempt to glamorize prostitution.
A gay character was seemingly shoe-horned into a scene in the blockbuster Marvel film Avengers: Endgame to satisfy the LGBT agenda and reach a younger audience.
Drag Queen Story Hours have been planned at local public and school libraries nationwide over the past year. The disturbing events involve men dressed up as garishly adorned women who read LGBTQ-themed books to young children under the guise of performing a public service. Some drag queens have admitted their goal is to “groom” the next generation.
“Christian parents and grandparents, we must remain vigilant,” Wildmon added. “If you have young children or teenagers even, be aware that these kinds of attacks are coming from mainstream media products like magazines, movies, music and more, often in a subtle and underhanded way. We must pray for our young people—that they will stay close to the Word of God and its never-changing truth.”
“And the Lord rained upon Sodom and Gomorrha brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven.” —Genesis 19:24
“But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea.” —Matt. 18:6
One of the most egregious crimes of the radical Left and other over-tolerant individuals in the West is the sexualization and LGBTQ+ brainwashing of young children. Not only are children being pushed by teachers and mentors and even parents into self-mutilation and sexual perversion in the name of “love,” but any detransitioners who try to return to guiding their lives by biology and morality are mocked, censored, and marginalized. I wanted to highlight a few awful stories of adults abusing children in the name of Tolerance.
This first video is so sick. It’s creepy when adults give money to scantily dressed drag queens, let alone when an innocent baby does it:
A heart-breaking picture of “trans” mastectomy on a young girl:
“[Breitbart] On an episode of America’s Newsroom, Fox News reporter Bryan Llenas highlighted the story of Ryland Whittington, a young girl whose family embraced her transgender transition to male when she was five years old. . .Llenas described Whittington as ‘a typical southern Californian teenager,’ during the segment’s introduction. According to her mother, Hillary Whittington, Ryland told her parents that she was a boy before she could even speak.
‘I could see it. It wasn’t him trying to be a brat. It was like painful. It was painful for him to have to wear feminine clothing and for us constantly telling him that you are a girl,’ Hillary Whittington said.”
What the heck does that even mean? Your toddler found feminine clothing “painful?” How do you diagnose something like that? I wonder if this sick mother interpreted normal baby behavior like throwing off clothes or resisting getting dressed as “transgenderism.”
“Both of Whittington’s parents fully supported her decision when she allegedly came out as transgender at five years old.
Despite the Whittington family’s ‘conservative faith,’ Whittington’s mother believes God ‘created Ryland just the way ‘he’ is.’
Llenas’s coverage included statistics from the Trevor Project that indicated more than half of transgender and non-binary children engage in self-harm.”
Perhaps that’s because being “transgenderism” violates biology and reality, not because of a lack of affirmation in perversion. Homosexuals tend to have high rates of depression and suicidal thoughts, too.
“At the segment’s conclusion, [Fox’s] Llenas praised the Whittington family for being public about transgender issues in today’s political climate. He also commended the family for displaying ‘extraordinary courage.’”
Fox News is despicable, not loving, for advertising this insanity. As G.K. Chesterton said, “Tolerance is the virtue of the man without convictions.”
Another sad story from Libs of TikTok:
According to the tweet thread, the mother claims her child was acting transgender from the age of 2. How does that even make sense? The only way you could possibly interpret a two-year-old as wanting to be the opposite sex, which is impossible and preposterous anyway, is if he or she does things that are stereotypically associated with the opposite sex. And I thought stereotyping was sexist?
There are countless examples of LGBTQ+ events advertised and geared toward kids in recent months, but I want to highlight just two of them. I reported in June for Newsbusters:
“Google sponsored a disturbing LGBTQ+ ‘Pride’ and drag event in Austin, Texas, which was billed as ‘family-friendly,’ according to the Rainbow on the Creek web page.
The ‘Rainbow on the Creek’ event in Austin’s Waterloo Park said on its official webpage that it is ‘a free family-friendly celebration that connects, educates, and celebrates Austin’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQIA+) community.’ The webpage also prominently announced that the event was ‘[s]ponsored by Google.’
Performers at the event June 11 included multiple drag queens, including ‘Pelvis Wrestley’ and ‘Roxxxy Andrews of RuPaul’s Drag Race’ as a featured performer… A[n] independent journalist [revealed] that scantily-clad drag performer ‘Heyonce The Vocalist’ was caught on video performing suggestive dance moves at the event while children watched.”
Possibly even worse is this sex “workshop” I reported on in July:
“A school board director in Washington state not only owns an ‘adult store,’ she has hosted and will host programs for kids [as young as nine years old] about ‘sexual anatomy for pleasure’ and LGBTQ+ ‘pride.’ Meanwhile, Netflix is planning a new show about ‘sex rooms.’ There’s nothing like pedophile educators and sexual perversion for entertainment!. . .Bellingham Public Schools school board director Jenn Mason advertised ‘Uncringe Academy,’ a ‘sex education summer program’ at her supposedly ‘identity-inclusive’ and ‘not creepy’ adult store [WinkWink].”
Topics covered in the workshops included “Gender and sexual identities, Sexual anatomy for pleasure and reproduction, What IS sex? Kinds of solo and partnered sexual activities, Safer sex practices for all kinds of sexual activities, [and] The ethics and realities of sexualized media and pornography.”
Because nine-year-olds definitely need to be learning about porn, details of various “sexual activities,” and “sexual identities.” The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis for their sexual perversions comes to mind.
It should be illegal to take little children to pride events of any sort. Sexual perversion is evil enough when adults are involved in it but seeing children at such events reminds me of when Jesus said in the Bible (Matt. 18:6), “But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea.”
Parents who force the unscientific, perverted, unnatural LGBTQ+ agenda on their little ones should take heed to the warning of Christ.
Even the children’s heart’s are cooling off, because their relationship with God is cooling off… 💔 Where are these kids parent’s… To teach them right from wrong… Who will teach them about Jesus… When clearly these kid’s parents don’t care… To into the world… Lovers of pleasure, rather than lovers of God… It’s very clear now… Time is so very short… ⌛ Even shorter if you have taken the serpents poison… 🐍 It’s time to Repent… Call on the name of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ… ✝ Ask Jesus into your hearts today… ❤ Pray & don’t be deceived… 🙏 Be filled & led by the Holy Spirit… 😇💪 Run towards Jesus now… 🏃 while you still can… ⌛ 🚨🚫💉🚨*Where there is RISK there should be CHOICE…*Freedom Not Force…

I’ve been telling parents to take their kids out of the brainwashing communist school system since shortly after the war broke.
If you are STILL sending your kids to school, you are a BAD PARENT!!!
Forget about the fake virus scamdemic, schools have been mind controlling your children (I admit I didn’t know this when I raised my son) for over 100 years if not longer.
And now with the evils’ agenda to make EVERY CHILD TRANS or GAY, are you fucking kidding me???
Plus, schools all over the world are death jabbing these kids without the parents even knowing it, and I said from almost day one that they will turn the kids against the parents.
Actions speak louder than words!!!
I give credit to each video and the channel I got it from or sometimes the original uploader. That’s assuming I get it from one of the 4 major video platforms, as sometimes I get the videos from Telegram or FB so there is no link.
For both Truthers and Normies… the ONLY way we are going to fight this thing is IF you finally recognize that you have power within.
Please PLEASE start releasing your childhood trauma. We all have some.
This is why it’s so easy for the evils to control us, because they have harmed us psychologically for hundreds of years through all sorts of trauma – war, poverty, death, sickness through their poisons, physical and sexual abuse, all sorts of EMFs, RFs, MFs, etc., AND brainwashing and mind control.
Then our parents pass that trauma down onto us and unless you clear most of it, you will pass it to your children and so on.
Then we need to learn how to tap into our inner power and reach our higher self.
Looking outside yourself for saving is exactly what they want you to do, to think you have NO POWER.
Also, so long as our vibration is constantly low, they can bring us further down, so we all need to learn how to raise it as much as possible.
I know it’s not something we can do all of the time. We need to protect ourselves from these evils.
I’ll upload more tools as I find them.
As of April 7, 2021, you can find all of my videos on these 2 censorship free platforms.
I’d also like to hear your thoughts on the video with a comment.
If you are serious about helping save yourself AND humanity, join our Think Tank by contacting me on my site. We need to strategize on what to do, not just blindly do what everyone else is doing.
We MUST work together to not only save us from this war, but also change our world for the best. We can’t do it without you.
Never give up HOPE, because we can resolve this problem if we just stick together, strategize, and follow Natural Law practices.
And if you can help support my work which I’ve been doing full time for free since the war started, that would be much appreciated. You can even just click on links and buy things you need so I get a commission. It costs you nothing other than what you needed anyway.
This will help keep you up-to-date with what is going on so you can learn the truth and pass the information along to others.

Cultural norms are pushing girls to be viewed, to evade overly sexual manner; dangerous to health, society.
Welcome to America and its increasingly bizarre relationship with women’s sexuality.
Did President Barack Obama mean anything nefarious when he praised California Attorney-General Kamala Harris as “by far the best-looking attorney-general… It’s true! C’mon.” I doubt it. Still, he apologized because, however innocent, it wrongly sexualized a woman who ought be judged entirely by her professional performance.
Too many women are hired based on their capacity as window dressing, with places like Wall Street apparently being some of the worst offenders.
But what is a more harmful transgression in the ongoing sexualization of women, a comment about a mature, brilliant, and fully grown female as also being attractive, or one of the America’s most famous undergarment companies targeting teens with green-and-white polka-dot hipsters reading “Feeling Lucky?” Recently a teen girl came to see me. She had been sexually violated by a boy her own age whom she had considered a friend. After reporting the incident to the authorities, she wished to discover how she could recapture her innocence.
“The world I inhabit is all about me and my friends being as sexually alluring as possible for the boys in our class. It felt good to get attention. I never believed it could end in something like this. Now I’ll never trust a man again,” she said.
Now, granted, sexual assault is an extreme manifestation of the increasing sexual exploitation of young girls and, ultimately, regardless of the cultural factors, a man must never harm a woman, and if he does, he must face severe punishment.
But have we no responsibility as a culture for the portrayal of girls as boys’ playthings from an increasingly young age, and do we really believe that the growing degradation of women has no consequences? Victoria’s Secret PINK label, with its new “Bright Young Things” campaign, is a particularly egregious offender. Now, I am no prude and I welcome beautiful and sexy lingerie for women. I want to live in a world where a wife is always attractive to her husband and vice versa (although men wearing lingerie is probably a step too far).
But for goodness sake, do 15-year-olds need thongs with “Call me” on the front? Do they need the words “I dare you” printed on their backsides? Or “Let’s make out” printed on the most private parts of their bodies? Does any of this square with the message we’re trying to send to teen girls that they should be valued for their minds before their bodies? And lest the argument be made that the PINK line is only for college-aged girls, Victoria’s Secret chief financial officer Stuart Burgdoerfer made it clear that the PINK lingerie line seeks to reach a teen audience.
“When somebody’s 15 or 16 years old, what do they want to be? They want to be older, and they want to be cool like the girl in college, and that’s part of the magic of what we do at PINK,” he said.
As a father raising six daughters, I know that young girls are very attuned to the messages that surround them. My missive to my daughters is that I, their father and not some boy, is the one to love and validate them through their teen years. To seek approval and popularity from young men during their development years would result only in the exploitation of their insecurities and vulnerabilities. But if they wait until they are adults they will have the inner strength to choose a man based on virtue rather than desperation. They will find a soul mate who respects them rather than a man who takes advantage (as if their father would ever allow that in the first place).
But it’s everywhere. James Franco’s new film Spring Breakers which I have not seen, is apparently so exploitative of teen girls, depicting them in the most debauched and degrading light, that even mainstream reviewers, not easily shockable, are shocked. Writing in Cinemablend.com, Sean O’Connell said, “Spring Breakers feels like the floor of a Tampa Bay strip club. It’s sticky, slimy, dirty and has seen far more depravity and corruption than one should handle.”
And why should any of this matter? Isn’t it just part of the ongoing campaign on the part of the purity police to demonize the sexual revolution and keep our libidos in chains? But whatever your feelings about how permissive or repressed our society is, certainly not in the ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s ,or ‘90s was their sexualization of women this young. No-one ever dared depict teen girls en masse as slutty and intended primarily for sexual play. No, there was a line that was drawn. That’s why pornography is called “adult entertainment.”
Not any more.
Writing in Slate magazine, Amanda Marcotte defended things like salacious slogans on teen lingerie by noting that the average American has sex by 17 and seven out of 10 are sexually active by 19.
Teenagers “need this time to experiment… there’s no harm giving teenagers a little freedom to do the growing up they need to do.” (That is just it, the “growing up” they need to do has NOTHIG TO DO WITH SEXUALITY!)
But portraying teen sex as something utterly harmless flies in the face of the data retrieved by the National Longitudinal Survey of Adolescent Health which found about 25 percent of sexually active girls to be depressed all, most, or a lot of the time, while only 8% of girls who are not sexually active feel this way. Suicide rates are also significantly higher for sexually active teens. And this is aside from the risks of pregnancy and STDs. Sex conjures up the strongest human emotions and it’s intended for the time in our lives when we are mature and strong.
But while sexualizing teens did not rock her boat, Obama’s comments about Harris deeply upset Marcotte. “It’s a shame to have him undermine his enlightened policies with comments that highlight women’s ever-present decorative duties – especially when we know for a fact that such remarks erode women’s opportunities and even their own sense of deserving equality.”
Surely logic would dictate that however misguided the president’s comments, they are utterly insignificant compared to the ongoing campaign to make our girls into sexually active women well before it is healthy or appropriate for them to be so.
One of the things I remember from my graduate school experience was learning about “Occam’s razor.” Basically, what I recall is that it meant that when competing theories arise, it is best to use the one that makes the fewest assumptions, i.e., the simplest one.
If ever there were a place where there are all kinds of competing theories and explanations today, it’s the study of gender. And while academics (and I have my credentials here, with a Ph.D. in psychology and more than 25 years of research and college teaching) will constantly speak in careful terms, and hem and haw, at least in public, I suspect that, like me, in the privacy of their own homes, or definitely in the privacy of their own minds, things are much simpler. Even if they don’t use Occam’s razor in their public pronouncements, it’s there. Life is too complicated for it not to be.
My title is my attempt to apply Occam’s razor to trends I see all over the academic world and in the media: We are feminizing boys as we masculinize girls.
I have been obsessed with gender issues for more than 40 years — “monomaniacal” about it is the way my younger brother put it a couple of decades ago. But these days the whole country seems to have joined me in my obsession. And in so much of what I read, there is a major message: Masculinity is a problem, so we have to re-educate our boys. (I use the term “re-educate” quite purposely because it does have negative connotations; for example, it has been used to describe what took place during the Cultural Revolution in China.) Whether the title of a piece is “The Stigma of Masculinity: Can Men Still Manly Without Feeling Ashamed?” or “How to Raise a Feminist Son” or “Re-Defining Masculinity,” the message is the same: There is something inherently wrong with boys, or at least in the way they have been raised in the past (and many are still); and we have to do something about it.
What are “masculine” and “feminine” anyhow? In spite of a difficulty with a gender binary that so many people have these days, I strongly believe that there would still be general agreement on terms for each category. One frequently used measure of masculinity and femininity — and “androgyny,” which would be a relatively high score on both sides — is the Bem Sex Role Inventory (or BSRI) developed by Sandra Bem more than 40 years ago (Bem, 1974). Here are just a few items from that 60-item self-administered instrument, where individuals put a number from 1 (“never or almost never true (of me)” to 7 (“always or almost always true (of me).” Among the characteristics associated with masculinity are self-reliant, defends own beliefs, aggressive, acts as a leader. Among characteristics on the feminine side are these: yielding, helpful, sensitive to the needs of others, and gentle.
Another self-scoring test measuring masculinity and femininity (though referred to as “instrumentality” and “expressivity”) is the Personal Attributes Questionnaire (or PAQ), developed by Janet T. Spence, Robert Helmreich, Joy Stapp in 1975. Among the masculine characteristics on that 24-item scale are independent, self-confident, and competitive; among the feminine characteristics are emotional, very aware of the feelings of others, helpful to others.
The problem for boys and men whose masculinity is being subject to attack is that many studies have shown that both women and men who scored higher on the masculinity (than the femininity) scale were more likely to have higher self-esteem (which often correlates with success). The original thinking by Bem and others was that the most highly successful people would be androgynous – defined as scoring above the median on both masculinity and femininity; so it was surprising to many that this was often not the case, but rather that scoring higher on masculinity was frequently the best predictor of success.
I am not saying that extremes of masculinity, which could include violence, are acceptable. But given the association of masculine traits with self-esteem and success, something which our society has now at least tacitly recognized for our daughters, and given the many ways in which boys and young men are lagging behind girls and young women in their education as well as many other ways, it seems unwise to feminize our sons while we encourage independence, self-confidence, and competitiveness in our daughters.
Finally, if evolutionary psychology means anything at all — and there is much evidence that it does — will our independent, strong, and confident daughters ultimately want men who don’t share these traits?
We shall see. Sweden is experimenting with trying to make its pre-schools as gender-neutral as possible, but this necessarily means a reversal of the usual sex roles. The headline of a front page story in the New York Times several days ago reads “In Sweden’s Preschools, Boys Learn to Dance and Girls Learn to Yell.” Is this the wave of the future? If so, decades of research suggest that it is a very uncertain one.
In the Talmud the “HOLY” Book of the SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN teaches pedophilia is kosher.

And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;
And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.
And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.
But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them. GENESIS 19
And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. Remember Lot’s wife. Luke 17
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleannessthrough the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this causeGod gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death,not only do the same, but have pleasure in them.
