Government-funded teacher organization vows to protect ‘trans kids’ from their parents

The Daily Mail came out with a story yesterday revealing facts about the LGBT movement in education that even the most paranoid conspiracy theorist couldn’t have imagined. The federal government, it turns out, supports teachers that want to talk to schoolchildren about queer sexuality as early as elementary school and try to change their genders without parental knowledge or consent, even if it’s illegal in their district.

Don’t believe me? Take it from the hosts of a teachers’ conference at the Midwest and Plains Equity Assistance Center, a group that has received funding from the Department of Education since the 1960s. In the leaked video of the presentation, they made their intentions clear with comments that they probably didn’t expect to become public.


“We’re working with our record-keeping system so that certain screens can’t be seen by the parents … if there’s a nickname in there we’re trying to hide,” said a staff member for a K-12 school in Michigan about a child’s transgender identity.

Supporting “trans youth” in schools, an Ohio-based teacher said, “requires working subversively and quietly sometimes to make sure that trans kids have what they need.” She also warns the group of roughly 30 attendees that they must discuss “sexuality” with elementary students in ways that do not present “reinforced heterosexuality as the norm.”

“At no point in the session did any teacher say parents might know what’s best for their own kids, nor question whether affirmation-on-demand was the only way to help a trans-identified student,” the Daily Mail noted.

These employees are not outliers. A parental rights organization reported this month that thousands of school districts consider it a matter of policy to keep potentially difficult parents uninformed on these matters.

Sending a child down the path of LGBT indoctrination without guidance from their parents has proven to be dangerous. When a Virginia school secretly helped a 14-year-old girl identify as a boy, she was groped and assaulted in the boys’ bathroom. After staff encouraged her to explore gender-related resources online, she found herself on websites that adult strangers used to kidnap and rape her. She eventually decided she wasn’t transgender at all, as most children with gender dysphoria tend to do later in life.

Interfering with a child’s natural development with cross-sex hormones and puberty blockers can also have harmful effects, most notably sterilization, as insiders to gender medicine have acknowledged. If children take these substances and still don’t feel satisfied despite adults in their life insisting they’re transgender, they often become convinced that they must pursue more transformative procedures. This may lead to an irreversible surgery by adulthood or even earlier, which many come to regret.

Parents who wish to have their own influence in this process might not succeed if secretive teachers have a head start. Their predatory strategy is to slip in at a young age to earn a child’s trust, appealing to their naturally rebellious nature by telling them that their parents are misguided or “transphobic” for disapproving of what they think they want at the time. The delusional ideologues behind this do not care about the child the way a parent does, nor will they have to live with any of the destructive consequences of isolating the child from those who do care about them.


Those who don’t want any of this to happen have used the democratic process to elect politicians who have passed laws against it. But activist educators, as one declared in the video conference, have their “own right code of ethics,” which “doesn’t always go along with the law.”

President Joe Biden’s DOE decided in November that this organization deserved 8.5 million of our tax dollars. If you are a loving and protective parent, know that your own government is actively working against your interests and the well-being of your child.
