Sex & Gender Theory is a product of Critical Theory, an ideology which seeks to divide people into various oppressed and oppressor groups. As played out in the public schools, Sex & Gender Theory divides children into groups based on their sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI). The Genderbread Person graphic promoted by ‘It’s About Metrosexual,’ is one such tool used in public schools. Another popular teaching graphic is the Gender Unicorn. The goal is to change how our children perceive biological sex. They are being taught that biological sex at birth is separate from gender identity. The motto of ‘It’s About Metrosexual‘ is: “Breaking through the binary: Gender explained using continuums.”
This Marxist influenced worldview tells students that if they do not check one or more of the LGBTQIA+ boxes, they are “CIS” gender, a perjorative term that gender theory activists have coined to mean “privileged” heterosexual person whose sexual identity matches their “sex assigned at birth.” Identities other than “CIS” are taught as oppressed or victimized. Schools then teach that kids who hold to these identities need school-wide support by encouraging empathy and promoting and participating in pride celebrations. They teach children how to become “allies” of their oppressed peers, and cloak these actions as ways of being good and kind.
Currently, self-identifying as “non-binary” has become a social contagion where it’s “fashionable” to be a member of an oppressed identity group. The public schools are advancing the culture wave and Critical Theory by encouraging non-conventional sex and gender identification. According to Newsweek, “Among Millennials, 30 percent identify as LGBTQ, more than three times that of the rest of the adult population, and when the researchers broke out the youngest of the group, ages 18-24 (which some call Gen Z), they found 39 percent called themselves LGBTQ.”
Here are just some of the ways that schools are participating in this unprecedented wave:
To learn more, we recommend Abigail Shrier’s book, Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters. Shrier is independent Journalist and former writer for the Wall Street Journal. Her book investigates why and how so many young girls and women are making the irreversible and regrettable decision to undergo medical treatments to affirm gender dysphoria. She provides statistics to show that this is a social contagion and not an organic culture shift. Her book also reports on many de-transitioners, who, over time, have come to deeply regret the medical procedures that left them sterile, mutilated, sexually dysfunctional, depressed and unable to recognize either gender in themselves. (Watch detransitioner, Chloe Cole, recount her story here.) In some cases, these stories of gender ‘transitioning,’ lead to suicide, which ironically is the common argument behind the medical establishment’s push to affirm gender confusion via medical interventions. Recent studies are beginning to show a significant correlation between gender ‘transitioning’ and suicide. Initially after medical interventions, there seems to be a euphoric “honeymoon” period when peers and mentors praise those transitioners as brave for affirming their “gender identity.” In time, however, many become disillusioned when they realize that hormones and surgical mutilation can never truly change their sex and they struggle to recover any semblance of their authentic self.
The Heritage Foundation released a corroborating report stating that: “Lowering legal barriers to make it easier for minors to undergo cross-sex medical interventions without parental consent does not reduce suicide rates—in fact, it likely leads to higher rates of suicide among young people in states that adopt these changes.”
In the Daily Wire article, How Do Gender Transitions Impact Children? Here’s What The Science Says, Miriam Grossman, MD and board-certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist writes, “There is a risk of suicide in gender-questioning teens, but there is no evidence that transition lowers that risk. One study showed that following genital surgery, transgender patients were 4.9 times more likely to attempt suicide and 19.1 times more likely to have died from suicide, after adjusting for the presence of psychiatric comorbidities.”
Despite overblown claims of the radical activists, and medical and media establishments, pharmaceutical and surgical interventions affirming gender dysphoria, DO NOT improve outcomes, but only further compound the problems of a troubled population of youth.
