Deep blue Illinois recently passed a law requiring schools to indoctrinate its young school children in radical transgenderism.
Starting in July of next year, Illinois teachers will be forced to teach “LGBTQ history” to all of the state’s public school children.
The state pushed this indoctrination as a net positive.
“Imagine a generation of Illinois students having learned the positive contributions of LGBTQ people to U.S., Illinois, world history,” Brian Johnson, CEO of the radical gay group Equality Illinois, told Illinois Public Media. “I think it’s only going to have a positive effect on our society’s view of LGBTQ people.”
The bill’s sponsor, Democrat state Rep. Anna Moeller, added that the main purpose of the new Illinois rules is to indoctrinate kids into imagining that the gay lifestyle is entirely normal and good.
“This has the potential to change the way society views the LGBT community. Who we decide to talk about and who we include in history reflects the values we have in our society,” Moeller said.
But this agenda is harmful to kids. As The Federalist noted:
A Brown University study last year found indications that an identity politics-saturated environment can fuel a “social contagion” of children identifying as transgender. Scholar Mary Eberstadt has written in great detail about how upending boundaries around sex undermines children’s faith. Loss of faith, as well as sexual profligacy, is correlated with a host of social problems including mental illness, family chaos, government dependence, violence, and lawlessness
The Federalist went on to reveal some of the contents of this new curriculum:
Schock noted that she was teaching LGBT-themed materials before the Illinois law passed because the College Board integrated it into AP history classes in recent revisions. “Schock teaches about the 1969 Stonewall riots for LGBTQ rights in New York City, feminism, and Latino and American Indian rights movements as part of the description of social movements of the 1960s and 1970s. She spends a class period on each topic,” reported the Daily Herald.
This means that even in states that have not mandated LGBT curriculum, bright students are likely to be exposed to it through AP classes, which also influence non-AP curriculum. The Stonewall Riots are also taught to elementary school students as part of LGBTQ+ Equity Week curriculum being taught this week in District 65, a north Chicago suburb.
Adhering to intersectionality requires saturating all classes with identity politics at all times. The district is also making sure children receive LGBT instruction all year long, not just in one week, as the teachers who wrote the LGBTQ+ Equity Week curriculum also developed “modular resources to support teachers who choose to include LGBTQ+ identities in their curriculum throughout the remainder of the year,” according to district documents. Of course, even children parents might keep home from school for this one week are otherwise in class every day with teachers and peers who attended, and children talk.
Parents are also being told they cannot opt their children out of this indoctrination, despite any religious qualms they may have.
The Federalist has a ton of specific examples of the indoctrination kids are receiving to normalize the radical gay agenda and lifestyle.
