It is becoming increasingly apparent that extremely sexualized material, clearly aimed at breaking down all social norms, is being pushed on children across the US in classrooms and in the media they consume at home. Today, instead of teachers and producers being ostracized for subjecting children to this, they are now being applauded and supported by every institution, and it’s only getting worse.
Regardless of how often news outlets brush aside these events, a recent compilation using just a few of the clips from a popular Twitter account provides all the evidence one needs to reveal the seriousness of the current social situation.
When people use the term “culture war,” they are either knowingly or unknowingly referring to social battles for the culture of the next few generations. What better to win this war than to launch a new unchallenged trend of sexual deviancy, and shape the culture of impressionable youth, creating generations of useful ideologues.
As we have reported in the past, this is happening in red states just as much as in blue states, and it is easy to stop. That is of course if we have the courage to do what needs to be done.
Support for same-sex marriage in the U.S. has reached an all-time high of 70%, according to a poll released by Gallup. The rise in support stems largely from a surge in support from Republicans, who for the first time approve of same-sex marriage at 55%.
This change highlights the complete forfeiture by conservatives on these issues, and now we are witnessing the consequences.
According to Gallup studies published in papers like the Guardian, the percentage of adults in the US who identify as LGBTQ+ has also doubled over the past 10 years. The poll results show a record 7.1% of American adults identify as LGBTQ+, jumping from 3.5% in 2012.
The poll also found that 21% of Generation-Z – those born between 1997 and 2003 – identify as LGBTQ, more than double the proportion of the previous millennial generation.
Within just a few years, America went from even Barack Obama opposing Gay Marriage, to it becoming ‘controversial’ to oppose trans kids, drag story hour, and teachers quite literally grooming children.
This is a result of Republicans deciding a long time ago that socially conservative values are not worth fighting for.
What to do at the State Level
The regulation of morality has been a big part of American culture up until 1965. For most of American history, individual states regulated the morality of citizens in some form or another.
There were laws for sodomy and even cohabitation, and for a long time, even exposed breasts were banned from American TV shows. The Hays Code, for example, was designed specifically to reign in licentiousness in American film in an attempt to prevent the chain of events that have culminated in the slippery slope we see the results of today.
It is because we have peeled back these layers of protection that sexual perversion has worsened over time.
Florida recently passed a bill barring teachers from teaching children about ‘sexual identity’ from kindergarten through third grade. Put simply, the bill does not go far enough. Republicans completely control the governments of over 20 states, and schools in these states should not be allowed to promote gender studies, LGBT rhetoric, or have ‘pride’ celebrations in any grade.
Not only is this a major moral battle in the culture war for the next generation, but all of these things are a direct violation of the religious beliefs of Christian students in these schools.
Prayer in schools was just as common as the pledge of allegiance before the 1960s. Following the 1960’s sexual revolution, this all changed and continues to change for the worse each passing year.
In June of 1962, the United States Supreme Court decided in Engel v. Vitale that a prayer approved for use in schools was in violation of the First Amendment by constituting schools an ‘establishment of religion.’ The following year, in June of 1963, the Court disallowed Bible readings in public schools for similar reasons, in Abington School District v. Schempp.
These two landmark decisions, both occurring in June, ultimately changed the face of American civil society, and in turn, helped usher in the last 50 years of the culture wars. Religiosity is all but dead in schools and some conservative pundits say that today, students across America are essentially required to convert to a new religion.
If Christianity is no longer welcome in public schools, why should something that directly violates the religious beliefs of students be?
Because of the police powers under the 10th amendment, individual states with legislatures dominated by Republicans can very easily pass laws that prevent this from happening. The bills must have teeth and prohibit any celebration of LGBT in schools as well as the discussion of gender identity through high school.
Coupled with anti-abortion bills, bills that challenge Obergefell v Hodges, laws that are tough on crime, and pro-gun legislation, this combination will help keep red states red and keep blue state refugees from migrating and taking over conservative areas.
Conservatives need to stop legislating according to the moral framework the left has molded for them, and instead legislate according to the Christian understanding of morality. Usually, when conservatives are courageous enough to stick together on issues they succeed in defending their values. Gun rights and abortion are perfect examples of this.
Randi Weingarten — a lesbian with a rabbi wife and head of the second-largest teacher’s union in America — defended the current situation by saying teaching these things to kids ‘saves democracy.’
What to do at the Individual Level
To go from just a sliver of the population identifying as LGBT to almost a quarter of the next generation indicates a concerning trend. But this is much more than just a harmless new fad among tweens and teens. Psychologists, psychiatrists, medical doctors, and teachers are all forced to affirm this new identity, and for many children, it is causing irreversible damage to their bodies and minds.
It is extremely important for parents to be educated on the history of ‘queer theory‘ — and as we have reported in the past — understand that this sort of content is more prevalent at home than at school.
A tidal wave of gay representation has washed over children’s TV shows and movies, with a 222 percent increase in LGBTQ characters and stories between 2017 and 2019 alone.
According to a study done by journalist Abigail Shrier, much of what we see today is due to the content children consume on social media platforms. Shrier reports that many children who decide to identify as LGBT, or regret their decision to take hormone therapy for transition, say that they learned about it from influencers on YouTube and TikTok.
Parents need to use apps like kidslox to prevent their children from accessing this sort of media as well as prevent access to pornographic imagery which children are accessing at earlier ages than ever before. Parents can also check everything their child watches on any streaming service before allowing them to view it.
Over the past few years – and especially during the coronavirus craze – conservatives in blue states have been fleeing for red states because of policies enforced by blue-state politicians. The problem is that many liberals have followed those conservatives, and they are allowed to comfortably promote their beliefs publicly without anyone blinking an eye.
In addition to pushing your local legislature to pass bills that prevent this, it is up to the individual to peacefully challenge these people on the street either individually or collectively through protests.
