There has been ample media discourse over red states in the US moving swiftly to prevent gender ideology and LGBT activism from being implemented in public schools and spaces with young children. The bulk of the narrative has been highly critical, with conservatives being accused of “blowing the issue out of proportion” and oppressing the rights of trans people. A standard refrain from trans activists is that “no one is coming for your kids, so stop being paranoid.”
And yet, these people just can't seem to keep a secret. A New York pride march says the quiet part out loud as they chant "We're here, we're queer, we're coming for your children."
Far from being a natural inclination among people towards gender dysphoria that they feel they need to express for the sake of their mental health, the trans movement is mostly composed of “trans trenders” - People joining a political movement simply because they want to feel like they belong. The effects of this trend are becoming increasingly obvious in blue state public schools.
The state of New Jersey has been one of the most aggressive blue havens by far when it comes to gender ideology in education. NJ started out with district rules that they said were designed to prevent discrimination against “trans students.” These rules included the use of preferred pronouns being encouraged by staff. Eventually, the policies expanded to include numerous gender based lesson plans and programs, and restrictions on teachers requiring them to keep student trans identities a secret from parents.
The proof is in the pudding – NJ's student population polled anonymously started 2019-2020 with only 16 trans identifying kids. Three years later after gender ideology programs were widely introduced, the trans population of students skyrocketed to 675; that's a 4000% increase.
Gender based lessons in NJ have been accused by parent groups of being anti-biology as well as graphic and inappropriate for the age groups they are aimed at. NJ schools have been exposed in the past for engaging in sexualized lessons and gender ideology propaganda for kids as young as kindergarten. New Jersey standards mandate that:
By the end of the second grade, students should understand the ways people express their gender and how gender-role stereotypes may limit behavior.
Fifth graders learn about romantic and sexual feelings, masturbation, mood swings, and the timing of puberty.
And eighth graders should know the definitions of vaginal, oral, and anal sex and identify short and long-term contraception and safer sex methods.
In Oregon, multiple school districts now require children from kindergarten age to go through gender identity and sexual orientation training. The lessons align with statewide standards, though some school districts are resisting the curriculum.
In California, school districts are now encouraged to promote pornographic LGBT content in books such as 'Gender Queer'. Democrats say the books are meant to help students "explore their sexuality," but is this something that teachers and district leaders need to be concerned about?
The bottom line? When a predatory person or group tells you who they are and what they want, believe them.
