What is the purpose of brainwashing kids with queer ideology?

Sadly, it's not as simple as "they just want to diddle kids". There's a lot of cultural Marxism involved in demoralizing, then falsely remoralizing your kids — and it is deliberate.

What is the purpose of brainwashing kids with queer ideology?

This is an edited version of a Twitter thread by @joshdaws.

I'm seeing a lot of people on the right share this meme. While it may be a strong satirical response to those who get lost in nuance, it fundamentally fails to recognize why the left wants to talk to your kids about sexuality. Let's connect some dots.

The left doesn't want to diddle kids [ed.: well, not all of them].  What they want is to create little revolutionaries. To do that they need to sever the bond between students and the parents they believe are raising their children to be hateful bigots.  They state so themselves — proof:

This is a good explanation of Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed. Freire considered traditional education to be oppressive. He offered an alternative method designed to awaken a critical consciousness in students, i.e. make them woke.

The whole goal of education, according to Freire, was the transformation of reality through critical reflection and action. In other words, turning students into social justice warriors. The left understands the power of education to direct political action.

This isn’t a new phenomenon. Remember all those Linda Ellerbee specials on Nickelodeon in the 90s. Those were designed to turn kids into agents of political change. That sort of education has moved into the classroom.

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way

Those aren’t just cheesy song lyrics to the left. Children are the key to societal transformation.

Pedagogy of the Oppressed is the most influential book in modern education and predates Critical Race Theory by about 20 years. CRT is the flashpoint in this debate but the problem is much much deeper.

All educators have an educational philosophy. As parents we have a responsibility to know what that philosophy is and ensure it aligns with what we want our kids to be learning at school.

In order to sever the bond between parents and their children, the left is using a two-pronged approach. Critical Race Theory and radical gender ideology (properly known as Queer Theory) are not two unrelated sets of ideas. They are two parts of the same strategy.

CRT is usually the first set of ideas to be introduced. This is often enough to radicalize racial minorities, but it's merely step one for white (or white adjacent) students.  CRT instills in these students a negative self-identity as they're taught to believe they're recipients of enormous privilege that was stolen from others and that they are complicit in historic and ongoing injustice. In child terms, they're taught to believe they're bad.  Apart from the shame and guilt, this also gives them a worldview at odds with the one their parents grew up with and are trying to pass on to their kids. Step one is complete.

Once CRT is done tearing down these kids and leaving them with a negative self-identity, Queer Theory (QT) is introduced and offers them a wide assortment of positive self-identities to choose from.  Instead of living with the shame and guilt of being a member of the oppressive dominant culture, these students can be celebrated for coming out as gender nonbinary or pansexual.  In an instant, these kids can trade their negative self-identity and all the accompanying guilt and shame of being an "oppressor" for a positive self-identity as a much-venerated "oppressed" minority.

At this point, the left desperately wants this new identity to stay at school so it has time to be cemented before the parents find out. In the guise of helping these students, schools withhold this information about their child's new identity from mom and dad.

Once the parents do find out about their child's new identity it's firmly in place and an adversarial relationship between the child and parents has been manufactured. It takes extraordinarily deft parenting to repair the relationship once it has reached this stage.  The parents' tendency will be to overreact and push the child further into the arms of the woke radicals who now have the little revolutionary they wanted from the beginning. The bond between parents and child has been severed ending the perpetuation of hate and bigotry.

The left is determined to replicate this process in as many families as they can using whatever means at their disposal. It's not about diddling kids. It's about capturing the minds of impressionable children.

Unfortunately, this creates environments where actual predators can thrive. When young children are isolated from their parents, encouraged to adopt different beliefs, and keep secrets from their parents, they are made easy targets for abusers.

"But my school has Christian teachers and a Christian principal. They couldn't possibly have this agenda." Aha. This is where we turn to @joe_rigney
and connect another dot.

Hear me loud and clear on this. Most teachers love the kids in their classrooms and want only the best for them. They have had their empathy for these students weaponized against them by leftist activists promoting educational programs that sound nice and caring.  Highly empathetic teachers are being used to promote this agenda unaware of its insidious purpose.

An example: I recently saw a teacher at a Christian school announce that she would no longer be using the words "mom", "dad", or "parents" in her classroom.  Her reason? She had just read a paper on the importance of making kids from non-traditional families feel included. She suggested replacing "Donuts with Dads" with "Bagels with Buds" or something of the such.  This sounds like a very considerate thing to do for kids who might feel different because they don't have a dad or live with their grandparents, but its purpose is to subtly chip away at the very idea of the normative nuclear family (a stated goal of the BLM organization.)

Christians who think that we can embrace the ideas from CRT and reject radical gender ideology need to realize how the former is used to prepare kids to accept the latter.

These are your kids we're talking about. The left wants them. They would love to sever your bond with them. They think your appeals to childhood innocence are an attempt to force heteronormativity on them. Seriously. They write papers on it. It's not a secret agenda.

@ConceptualJames has recorded a three-part series [ed. all mirrored below] walking through this entire agenda by looking at primary sources. I highly recommend all parents invest the time to listen to them.

The meme I opened this thread with is an easy response to the insanity we're seeing today, but it's not a great explanation. We should take the time to help people see how nice-sounding programs are being used in the classroom to create little activists and put kids in danger.

Groomer Schools 1 - The Long Cultural Marxist History of Sex Education-tDEP0JGW3c8.mp4

Through brand names like "comprehensive sex education" and one of its parent programs, "Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)," our government schools have been turned into Groomer Schools, and parents are beginning to notice. What many will not understand, however, is that this isn't just a fluke of our weird and increasingly degenerate times. It is, in fact, a long-purposed Marxist project reaching back into the early 20th century. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, join James Lindsay as he explains the long history of the sexual grooming that has come into our schools through Critical Gender Theory and Queer Theory as they have crept into educational programs. If you want an explanation for how sexually explicit materials, gender ideology, pornography, and strippers have made their way into our government schools, including for young children, this is a must-hear.

Groomer Schools 2 - Queer Futurity and the Sexual Abuse of Your Children--OQL1Jja3p4.mp4

In the previous episode of the New Discourses Podcast (https://youtu.be/tDEP0JGW3c8), James Lindsay revealed the long history of the problem of Groomer Schools, and horrible as it is, it barely communicates just how bad things really are. In this follow-up episode, Lindsay reads through an academic paper at the intersection of early childhood education and Queer Theory, two subjects that should never be mixed. The 2019 paper is called "Queer futurity and childhood innocence: Beyond the injury of development" by Hannah Dyer of Carleton University, Canada. In this episode of the podcast, James reads through this paper in full, offering his usual level of commentary and revealing just how insidious and dangerous the agenda in the public schools is (Critical Race Theory is, honestly, among the least of our problems, if you can believe it). Join him and prepare to be appalled at what the Critical Marxists who have taken over our education system have in mind for our children.

Groomer Schools 3 - The Creation of an American Red Guard-P8pHloB5qb4.mkv

More and more people are waking up every day to the fact that our schools have become an undeniable catastrophe, and they're starting to realize alongside that fact that it isn't an accident. It is purposed. It is intentional. It is a strategy, and it uses our children as pawns for achieving a nightmarish agenda, no matter how much damage it does to them to achieve it. In this Groomer Schools series on the New Discourses Podcast, James Lindsay has already walked you through (in Part 1: https://youtu.be/tDEP0JGW3c8) the long Communist Party strategy to use sex education in schools to destabilize society and sever ties between generations and just how specifically grotesque this grooming sexual agenda is (in Part 2: https://youtu.be/-OQL1Jja3p4). Here, in the third part of the series, Lindsay puts these two pieces together, explains their purpose, and illustrates how Critical Race Theory works alongside Queer Theory (grooming) for a blatantly Maoist purpose: to create an American Red Guard meant to overthrow our society and start all over from a new Year Zero. Join him to understand the evil Maoist tactics being employed in our schools to turn our children into Revolutionaries for the purpose of undermining America and the West.
