Skip to comments.How schools are pushing transgenderism to children. More radical and aggressive than ever.
Posted on 06/06/2014 7:48:29 PM PDT by massmike
We are suddenly seeing more and more "transgender" children in schools across America. How is that happening? How do kids get these ideas, and why do they embrace them?
It doesn't happen by accident. The homosexual-transgender movement is working hard to indoctrinate schoolchildren that "transgenderism" and cross-dressing are normal and just another way of becoming "who you really are."
This is the third part in our series on this year's annual GLSEN Conference in Boston which brought together LGBT teachers, activists, and supportive administrators to outline their latest tactics for the schools. Part II revealed their plans to push "gay clubs" in middle schools.
But Massachusetts (along with California) has enacted the most extreme legislation and regulations in the nation on this issue, forcing "transgenderism" into schools throughout the state. This is reflected in the GLSEN conference. Other states are certain to follow this path.
As the Conference reflected, bringing the concept of "transgenderism" to schoolchildren is a high priority of the LGBT movement.
Although most of the conference dealt with the transgender agenda in some way, three workshops had it in particular focus - showing it's a top priority.
2.1 Supporting Transgender Youth in Schools This workshop will serve as both a Trans* 101 and a resource for those looking for more knowledge about the rights of transgender students in schools. Presenter(s): Ryan Ambuter, Paulo Freire Social Justice [sic!] Charter School
1.5 When a Teacher Makes a Gender Transition We will share the successful experience of a faculty member's gender transition at Milton Academy, K-12, as well as communications strategies, documents, and lessons learned. Presenter(s): Marshall Carter & Sam Landau, Milton Academy
3.2 Queering the Classroom: Providing a Safe Learning Environment for All Providing a safe environment for GLBTQ youth promotes a more comfortable, creative environment for all students. Resources and discussion will address your classroom needs. Presenter(s): Marie Caradonna, WAGLY (West Suburban Alliance of GLBTQ Youth)
The conference covered techniques and strategies regarding (1) reinforcing the concept of transgenderism in the minds of students; (2) bringing the full agenda into the schools; and (3) threatening legal action to force reluctant school districts to accept it.
As with much of the other material we've exposed in this series, most parents have no idea what is being presented to their children by radical activists when they send their children to school. And each year, it seems to get more radical, outrageous, and psychologically intrusive.
(1) "Queer Theory": Reinforcing transgenderism as a normal, healthy "identity" The way schools do this should be very frightening to parents. Using so-called "queer theory" constructs that contradict reality, the radical activists manipulate the psychology of vulnerable children.
This poster -- distributed at the GLSEN Conference -- encapsulates the propaganda being told to students. Keep in mind that in Massachusetts (and many other places), this is being paid for largely with taxpayers' money:
Another example is a pamphlet distributed to youth in schools. It's particularly perfidious because it has the American Psychological Association (APA) logo on it. Most people don't know that the APA, like the American Medical Association and professional organizations, caved in to the homosexual movement years ago and now has major LGBT-dominated committees within it with virtually no accountability, publishing material for the public that's more political than scientific.
This pamphlet unfortunately includes much of the same pseudo-science and unhealthy advice that the rest of the homosexual-transgender movement pushes on society, dressed up as "medical fact."
(2) Bringing the full agenda into the schools This 60-page booklet given out at the conference gives techniques for persuading non-compliant adults to accept the transgender agenda. Titled "Welcoming our Trans Family and Friends" it is written and distributed in the schools by the well-funded national homosexual organization PFLAG (Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays).
It includes a section on "Tips when working with schools" that helps activists and radical teachers re-focus these techniques into the public schools.
In addition, the GLSEN Conference makes liberal use of the recent directive by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education outlining what they consider necessary steps by schools in order to obey the state's "transgender rights" law and provide a "safe" school environment for transgenderism.
It is arguably among the most overtly radical documents ever released by a state agency. As outlined in our report from February, 2013, it directs that:
Schools must differentiate between a student's "assigned sex at birth" and his "gender-related identity." Schools must allow students to determine themselves as "transgendered" if this is who they feel they are, and that decision must be respected by the schools. Schools must cover "gender identity" issues in policies, handbooks, written materials Schools may discuss hormone treatments and possible surgeries with students. Schools must address a student by an opposite-sex name if the student desires, and change school records to reflect that new name. Parents can be excluded from the process if student desires. Schools must allow "transgender" students to use opposite-sex restrooms, locker rooms, and changing facilities. Schools must allow "transgender" students to play on opposite-sex athletic teams. Schools must work to remove the concept of "gender"/biological sex from as much of school life as possible. Schools must provide transgender diversity training for children and school staff. There should be no tolerance for other students' discomfort with transgenderism. (3) Threatening legal action to force reluctant schools to accept it When the homosexual lobby goes before the Legislature, a City Council, or other public entity, and asks that a "gender identity" non-discrimination law be added, they always present a very well-honed set of arguments. They talk about losing a job, or being harassed, or being denied service in a store, etc.
What they don't tell you is that they will soon use those laws go into schools and threaten them with lawsuits or other legal action if they don't accept the broad transgender agenda. We have seen that scenario take place from Maine to California.
This strategy has been so successful across America that two national pro-homosexual organizations -- GLSEN and the ACLU -- have teamed up to train activists, radical teachers, and "gay" students how to threaten and intimidate school officials that don't fully comply with their demands.
Their new pamphlet, handed out at the GLSEN conference, is relatively short and concise but effectively guides LGBT activists to everything they need to force the full transgender agenda into a school, under threat of legal action. They are quite focused in this regard. It's all very well planned and executed.
What can parents and citizens do? As described above, most of the population only sees the end results of the homosexual and transgender activism in the schools. They have no idea what is going on inside the walls, and certainly not what's in the planning sessions and conferences.
It's hard for most people is to grasp the fact that there are people in our schools who expend so much energy perpetrating this abuse on other people's children, purposefully without parents' knowledge or consent. (After all these years, WE still have trouble understanding it.) Some people might call this "evil." We agree with that assessment.
MassResistance sees two of our most important jobs as (1) informing people what's really happening, and (2) helping them to effectively fight back. That usually means confronting the Legislature or other public officials in the schools, etc.
Shockingly, there is still more to report from this year's GLSEN Conference. We are preparing (at least) two more installments.

“Queering the Classroom:”?
isnt that child abuse in so many words???
Let’s see if I got this straight, we shouldn’t be genetically modifying foods because it’s dangerous and may be contributing to the obesity and diabetes epidemic, but it’s normal, healthy, empowering, etc for people, not just supposedly mature adults but minors as young as 5 to have their own genders re-engineered, and that’s natural? Am I missing something here??!? Maybe it’s me, but I see a HUGE contradiction.
These days,sending kids to public schools AT ALL is borderline child abuse!
I BET that there is no dad in his home, not for YEARS.
He is doomed.
Transgender my arse. A qu$$r by any other name is still a qu$$r.
Amen to that.
Hey! Quit sugar-coatin' it and tell us how you REALLY feel!
Neo pagan decadence on full display.
I simply cant wrap my mind around any of the pandering to homosexuals...
School is not supposed to be about learning why johnny thinks he’s a girl...until maybe MEDICAL SCHOOL were some level of lab work on abnormal psychology might be appropriate
And this gutter garbage is surprising how? The goal is to reduce the population of Human Beings by whatever method available.
These people aren’t “stupid”, they have a very specific agenda.
Back in the day we would have beaten his arse back into the closet were he belonged. Just say’n
I can’t be the only FReeper whose children attend public school.
Are we all guilty of “child abuse”?
Schools are all about the agenda now.
Look at science education — do they cover botany? Predator/prey paradigms? Hibernation? Not so much. That’s not the focus. It’s all Evolution, all the time. Genetics and adaptation and biological transition as seen in the fossil record.
And if you raise a question about that emphasis, they say — “You cannot know anything in Biology unless you understand Evolution. There is no hope of anyone having a future in the field unless they know this stuff.”
Upper level biological research, I can maybe see that. But kids in 7th grade trying to learn about basic science and the scientific method? It has to be All Evolution All The Time?
It’s all about the agenda. And the agenda is: “God is unecessary.”
Don’t forget adult same-sex incest is next, then comes adult opposite-sex incest because they love abortion!
.”There is no hope of anyone having a future ....IN JUNK ACADEMIA...in the field unless they know this stuff.....
lots of jobs as “evolutionist consultants out there?...../sS
“we dont got to cho ju no steenkin facts!” THEES is settled psuedo science
When are they going to push reading, math, science...you know the stuff that actually means something?
Well,if something like this is going on in someone’s school system,and mom and dad aren’t there the next day raising holy hell about it...
Of course,to be fair,look what happens when parents DO raise hell.....

Sending your children to government school truly is child abuse.
Well, which is it? ALL public school, or with qualifications?
Seriously, I’ve seen this charge so often here, and it needs to be addressed.

Seriously, Ive seen this charge so often here, and it needs to be addressed.
You're the one that must answer the question in your circumstance.
Does you public school system insert socially engineered liberal agitprop into seemingly innocuous curriculum? Well, what public school system nowadays does not?
This is just another aspect of a sustained assault intended to destroy America’s Judeo-Christian heritage by indoctrinating our children with endless moral relativism.
Unfortunately many Americans will accept having their free-speech and property rights diminished if they feel their sexual “freedom” is being enhanced.
She would do a fine job, fighting against the Germans in Normandy. What is the problem, you Xenophobes, Racists, Hermaphrodaphobes..... /SARC
WHAT HAVE WE BECOME? Is there somewhere we can retreat? Can we give the Statists 56 states, and all of us retreat to Texas?
...and also keep it in mind any time you hear Tisei on the radio with his pal Howie Carr, another stain on the republican party.
...and I’ll be shocked if the Ma GOP DOESN’T run him for governor in 4 years......unless they can talk Charlie Baker into going 0 for 3!
I’m trying to count the number of parents who will make any difference in the expanding danger to their own kids left in public schools. Depressing laxity. Tax dollars at work.
Good point. Modifying food is wrong, but modifying bodies is A-OK.
What does TRANS- mean anyway?
G-d is against it, since He said don’t dress as the opposite sex. Can’t believe...never mind. G-d knew what we were capable of.
Sick political minds running this country
Are we all guilty of child abuse?
Shhhhh don't tell anyone but there are about 20-25 of us conservative members of FR that actually teach at public schools.
We actually believe that it is better for the students to have some conservative role models, rather then leaving it all up to the libtards.
But seriously don't tell anyone we wouldn't want certain members to find out.
Ah the progressive wave of the future to screw up humanity.
That's exactly right. But the charge is always leveled that every public school, every public school teacher, every where, in every circumstance, is deliberately conspiring to turn my children into transgender Obama-worshipping zombies. Do I believe it happens? Apparently it does. Does it happen uniformly across the country at every school, in every district, to every community? That's ludicrous.
"Child abuse" is not a phrase FReepers should toss around so casually.
You fail to see that it is happening everywhere through calculated incrementalism.
Salami slicing refers to a series of many small actions, often performed by clandestine means, that as an accumulated whole produces a much larger action or result that would be difficult or unlawful to perform all at once. The term is typically used pejoratively. Although salami slicing is often used to carry out illegal activities, it is only a strategy for gaining an advantage over time by accumulating it in small increments, so it can be used in perfectly legal ways as well.
In politics, the term salami tactics has been used since the 1940s to refer to a divide and conquer process of threats and alliances used to overcome opposition.
With Salami Slice tactics, an aggressor can influence and eventually dominate a landscape, typically political, piece by piece. In this fashion, the opposition is eliminated "slice by slice" until one realizes (too late) that it is gone in its entirety. In some cases it includes the creation of several factions within the opposing political party and then dismantling that party from the inside, without causing the "sliced" sides to protest. Salami tactics are most likely to succeed when the perpetrators keep their true long-term motives hidden and maintain a posture of cooperativeness and helpfulness while engaged in the intended gradual subversion.
The deployment of this tactic warrants that each incremental change locally is only to the point that it will be tolerated by the local community. California will see more progress than Kansas.
Please try not to keep your head buried in the sand.
Transgender agenda bookmark.
Once homosexuality equals normal, then anything goes and they know it. Homosexual activists going back to the late 50s and early 60s planned on being a vanguard for all sexual minorities.
The key to winning this one is to kill the government schools and, even more importantly, get government out of the education business. Keep in mind that even private schools end up buying liberal curricula because government decides what is an education and buys it with our money. Private schools cannot afford to dodge around this and math, spelling, grammar, reading and history are all propaganda tools.
