In Part I, I looked at why teen girls have been adopting a gender-ideology worldview and considering for themselves if they could be transgender. Now I want to look at our current culture and where the enormous cultural influencer (public school system) stands on the issue. 

A Detransitioner

The California Teachers Association, the National Education Association, and the Biden administration have stood up and fully backed ‘the gender-affirming care.’ Biden’s Assistant Secretary of Health, Rachel Levine said, “There is no argument among medical professionals – pediatricians, pediatric endocrinologists, adolescent medicine physicians, adolescent psychiatrists, psychologists, etc. – about the value and the importance of gender-affirming care.” She added, “Adolescence is hard and puberty is hard. What if you are going through the wrong puberty?”((efn_note]Christenson, Josh. “Detransitioner tells Congress her ‘childhood was ruined’ by gender reassignment.” New York Post, nypost.com, 27 July 2023, https://nypost.com/2023/07/27/detransitioner-tells-congress-her-childhood-was-ruined-by-gender-reassignment/))

Last week Chloe Cole, a detransitioner, spoke to Congress. She is just one of a quickly growing number of women speaking out against the insanity of medical professionals who inject puberty blockers, testosterone, and cut off perfectly healthy breasts of young girls. Cole said, “We need to stop telling 12-year-olds that they were born wrong, that they are right to reject their own bodies and feel uncomfortable with their own skin.((Christenson, Josh. “Detransitioner tells Congress her ‘childhood was ruined’ by gender reassignment.” New York Post, nypost.com, 27 July 2023, https://nypost.com/2023/07/27/detransitioner-tells-congress-her-childhood-was-ruined-by-gender-reassignment/))

Cole explained to Congress when she was a girl; she felt uncomfortable when she entered puberty. She even told her parents she wanted to transition to a boy. Cole continued, “We need to stop telling children that puberty is an option. That they can choose what kind of puberty they will go through just [like] they can choose what clothes to wear or music to listen to.”((Christenson, Josh. “Detransitioner tells Congress her ‘childhood was ruined’ by gender reassignment.” New York Post, nypost.com, 27 July 2023, https://nypost.com/2023/07/27/detransitioner-tells-congress-her-childhood-was-ruined-by-gender-reassignment/))

She now recognizes the tragic results and life-long irreversible procedures that gender-affirming care delivers. “I speak to you today as a victim of one of the biggest medical scandals in the history of the United States of America,” Cole went on. “I speak to you in the hope that you will have the courage to bring the scandal to an end and ensure that other vulnerable teenagers, children and young adults, don’t go through what I went through.”((Christenson, Josh. “Detransitioner tells Congress her ‘childhood was ruined’ by gender reassignment.” New York Post, nypost.com, 27 July 2023, https://nypost.com/2023/07/27/detransitioner-tells-congress-her-childhood-was-ruined-by-gender-reassignment/))

The Sliding Scale

There have always been women who broke the rules of decorum and pushed the boundaries within their culture. Eric Metaxas wrote about several in his book, 7 Women and The Secret Of Their Greatness. Other examples, such as Harriet Tubman, Amelia Airhart, Rosa Parks, and Sally Ride, took on leading roles and stepped up to meet a need in a male-dominated world. Yet none of them considered themselves a man. Sally Ride, a lesbian, kept it a secret, recognizing the significance of being the first woman in space and did not want to subtract from that historic moment. 

California, New Jersey, Colorado, and Illinois have mandated LGBTQ history curricula in public schools, and more states will follow. This new agenda speaks to these extraordinary women but in terms that subtract from who they were. Now children learn strong women are not entirely female, but more on the male side of the spectrum.((Shrier, Abigail. “The Puzzle.” Irreversible Damage, Regnery Publication, 2021, p. 62)) Imagine a sliding scale, 80% female and 20% male, or 60% female and 40% male, etc. The more successful, the more influential, the more noteworthy she is, the more male she is. How does that give credit where credit is due? Women who were leaders, strong, powerful, influential, and trailblazers were more of a man than a woman. Does that help you ladies? 

On this sliding scale, girls who excel at math or wrestling would not be what we used to call path-breakers, but they are now considered ‘gender-expressive.’ They should consider their gender beyond ‘just’ female, but something more, male. 

Abigail Shrier, the author of Irreversible Damage, writes, “While all this sexual identity politics marches through the front door, a large-scale robbery is taking place: the theft of women’s achievement. The more incredible a woman is, the more barriers she busts through, the more ‘gender nonconforming’ she is deemed to be. In this perverse schema, by definition, the more amazing a woman is, the less she counts as a woman.”((Shrier, Abigail. “The Puzzle.” Irreversible Damage, Regnery Publication, 2021, p. 62))

Woman Of The Year

But it gets worse. The world was shocked when in 2015, Caitlyn Jenner, formally Bruce Jenner, was namedWoman of the Year by Glamour Magazine.

James Smith, who lost his wife when she rushed into one of the twin towers on 9/11, had something to say about it; frankly, he was livid. Glamour awarded his wife the ‘Woman of the Year Award’ posthumously. As a New York police officer, she had rushed into the twin towers to save who she could and consequently lost her life, bravely trying to save others. 

James Smith promptly pulled the award off a shelf, which was to honor his wife, and returned it to Glamour. Smith wrote, “Was there no woman in America, or the rest of the world, more deserving than this man?” Smith wrote. “At a time when we have women in the armed forces fighting and dying for our country, heroic doctors fighting deadly diseases, women police and firefighters putting their lives on the line for total strangers, brave women overcoming life threatening diseases . . . the list of possibilities goes on . . . is this the best you could do?”((Celona, Larry. “Husband of 9/11 hero send back award over Caitlyn Jenner.” New York Post, 15 November 2015, https://nypost.com/2015/11/15/family-of-911-hero-refuses-award-over-caitlyn-jenner/. 27 July 2023))

Fast forward, and now we have Lia Thomas nominated for the NCAA Woman of the Year. The last season Thomas competed as a member of the men’s team; he was ranked:

  • 554th in the 200 freestyle
  • 65th in the 500 freestyle
  • 32nd in the 1650 freestyle

As transgender swimming against women, Thomas ranked: 

It is undeniable making the shift from men’s competition to women’s, made an enormous difference in the success of Thomas, a biological male competing against biological females. 

You Can Change Your Race

Of course, if you can change your gender, you should be able to change your race. Do you think I am joking? Thousands of teens are practicing “race change to another” or RCTA. NBC reports, “Practitioners of what they call “race change to another,” or RCTA, purport to be able to manifest physical changes in their appearance and even their genetics to become a different race. They tune in to subliminal videos that claim can give them an ‘East Asian appearance’ or ‘Korean DNA.'”((Tuyetnhi, Emi, T. “Inside the online world of people who think they can change their race.” NBC News, 1 August 2023, https://www.nbcnews.com/news/asian-america/race-change-to-another-trend-online-rcna93759. 4 August 2023))

One high school girl, Alisa, has been practicing RCTA using ‘subliminals.’ Some creators of this material on TikTok and Youtube have hundreds of thousands of subscribers and millions of views. Alisa claims her vision has cleared, her eyelids have become smaller, and her hair is darker. Alisa said those who practice RCTA are not harming anyone, “We only live once, so I think we should do everything we want to do in life, even if others think it’s not OK or you can’t achieve it.”((Tuyetnhi, Emi, T. “Inside the online world of people who think they can change their race.” NBC News, 1 August 2023, https://www.nbcnews.com/news/asian-america/race-change-to-another-trend-online-rcna93759. 4 August 2023)) That quote represents the mindset of millions of youth today who have unlimited access to their phones. “…should be able to do everything we want to do in life, even if others think it’s not OK…” 

Many experts point out it is impossible to change your race, but others push back and saying race and culture are synonymous. 

For example, Kevin Nadal, a professor of psychology at City University of New York, says, “There is a privilege in being able to change your race or to say that you’re changing your race. There are many people who would be unable to ever change their race. Particularly, Black people in this country would be unable to say all of a sudden ‘I’m white’ and be treated with the same privileges that white people have.”((Tuyetnhi, Emi, T. “Inside the online world of people who think they can change their race.” NBC News, 1 August 2023, https://www.nbcnews.com/news/asian-america/race-change-to-another-trend-online-rcna93759. 4 August 2023))

Early Indoctrination

The California Education Board provides a book for Kindergarten teachers to read to their students. The title is, Who Are You? The Kid’s Guide to Gender Identity by Brook Pessin-Whedbee. The author writes, “Babies can’t talk, so grown-ups make a guess by looking at their bodies. This is the sex assigned to you at birth, male or female.”((Pessin-Whedbee, Brook. Who Are You? The Kid’s Guide to Gender Identity, Jessica Kingsley Publishers, 2016))

There is no guessing involved; every adult in the room can clearly see the sex and gender of the infant, but now we are told adults assign their gender and sometimes get it wrong. You would think that after eight years of medical school, the OBGYN could tell the difference between a baby boy and a baby girl. 

Teaching twenty years ago, children learned how to line up, share, write their names, color within the lines, and trust adults outside of their families. Now these adults teach them about the sliding scale of gender identity so they can begin to pick their own place on the rainbow spectrum. 

Gone are the days of story time when the teacher would read Curious George, Goodnight Moon, Love You Forever, Moo Baa la la la, Rainbow Fish, Dr. Seuss, and countless other titles that never once suggested to a child to consider what their gender is. It is ludicrous to place the topic of gender identity on children that young. 

Be Informed

If you are a parent or grandparent of young children, look into what books are in their school library. Ask what books the teachers will read to students during the school year. You should also see if your school district has policies that district personnel can or should keep a student’s transgender status hidden from parents or guardians. And for the locals who read my blog, yes, Sonora HighSonora ElementarySummerville HighSummerville Elementary, and Curtis Creek Elementary, are on the list. If you would like a complete list of California schools, look here

Furthermore, look at your school calendar to see if they celebrate various LGBTQ+ days. There are lots to choose from. October is LGBTQ+ history month which includes ‘Coming Out Day’ and ‘International Pronouns Day.’ November follows with ‘Transgender Awareness Week’ (in case you forget what occurred in October), which includes ‘Transgender Day of Remembrance.’ In March, you will find ‘Transgender Visibility Month and April includes ‘Day of Silence/ Day of Action.’ In May, we find Harvey Milk Day, and finally, we have Pride Month in June to kick off the summer festivities.((Shrier, Abigail. “The Puzzle.” Irreversible Damage, Regnery Publication, 2021, p. 69))

Seventeen Thousand and Counting

Instruction and persuasion do not end in the first few years of school; it continues into Jr. High and High School. Almost eighteen thousand U.S. schools have policies restricting parents’ knowledge of their child’s decision to consider or pursue a transgender status. 

Positive Prevention PLUS is a widely used health curriculum in middle schools that engages gender-identity instruction. Students are encouraged to imagine themselves as a different gender. Teachers ask students what changes in their life would take place. How would they feel being another gender? What would be fun being another gender? These questions and other instruction dovetail into students asking themselves if they are entirely female.((Clark, Kim. Ridley, Christine. Positive Prevention PLUS, LLC, Positive Prevention PLUS, Sexual Health Education for America’s Youth. https://positivepreventionplus.com/))

Why The Big Push for Pro-LGBTQ+?

There is no doubt that LGBTQ+ students are, and have been, bullied by their peers and teachers, some to the point of suicide. 

In 2019 the CDC examined dozens of school districts in 19 states and found higher rates of violence and self-harm by transgender high school students. Other LGBTQ organizations and activist groups confirm the statistics.((Shrier, Abigail. “The Puzzle.” Irreversible Damage, Regnery Publication, 2021, p. 72))

Teachers who are on the front lines with these students need to be aware and watchful for behavior that would fall into bullying. These students need to know they are loved and appreciated, no matter how they feel and who they think they are. Any student who bullies another student for a difference, be it physical, sexual, religious, or political, should be dealt with immediately.  

But when bullying involves a transgender, it falls into a completely different level of consequence. Suppose, for instance, classmates teased a student wearing a Jewish skullcap or yarmulke, pronounced “yamaka.” Typically you would hear from the teacher, “Knock it off. Treat people the way you want to be treated. Do you even know what that hat symbolizes? You have detention. Go to the office. Go see the principal.”

Yet we don’t find schools embedding Jewish beliefs into elementary, Jr. High, and High School curricula. Grades K-12 do not offer instruction on Jewish customs and theologies. Students are not required to believe in Yahweh or study the Old Testament. Nor do students have to participate in and celebrate Pride Month, oh, I mean Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. 

What Can You Do?

I have read multiple accounts where the health professional told the parent they have two choices. Parents can continue to push back and fight the child’s desire to transition from girl to boy, but if they commit suicide, it is the parent’s fault. The choice? You can have a dead daughter or a healthy boy. This option is called a false dilemma and deceitfully limits the available options. 

Teenagers are trying to figure out who they are, and this sudden epidemic (a 1000% increase) of adolescent girls saying they are a boy should alarm anyone with a young girl in their family. Question the narrative, and don’t be bullied into acquiescing to the gender ideology prevalent in our schools. 

You are the parent, and *they* are your responsibility. Take what steps you need to extend the timeline of adolescence to adulthood. Most importantly, remove them from their peer group, schools, and online communities that continually point them toward this self-destructive behavior. Cut out the carte blanche access to the smartphone. Some families have taken a sabbatical and traveled for a year. Others have unplugged and moved into a community that shares their values. 

These are drastic measures, but not a single family who has found success has regretted making the hard choices to save their daughter from a life of pain and regret. 

Not a Flaw

Girls are different; they are not defective boys. When girls, and boys for that matter, go online, they bathe in propaganda. Parents have to get a handle on what their children view and limit their exposure. Coupled with that, have conversations with them about the gender-ideology craze and lay out the facts. Don’t isolate them from what is going on, but innoculate them. Give them facts, candid conversations, and show them the man behind the screen. That way, she can make thoughtful decisions like the scarecrow, be compassionate and understanding like the tin man, and bravely face the culture that will ostracize her for not marching with the wicked witch of the west.

“Puberty is a rite of passage to adulthood, not a disease to be mitigated.” Chloe Cole

“A young woman’s unruly emotions in her teenage years – the whirlwind fury and self-doubt of female adolescence – may be a feature, not a flaw.” Abigail Shrier

Freedom of Speech

Freedom of Speech

Can You Speak Out?

Many universities and college classes foster ideological clubs, students who are quick and eager to devour any that oppose their views. Unfortunately, this has become the norm as opposed to a free exchange of ideas and opinions that cultivate thoughtful dialogues and debates. Moreover, many students, especially the minority conservative students, fear voicing their opinion because of the cancel-culture prevalent in today’s liberal universities. 

This problem goes well beyond our universities. Elon Musk has been very critical of the mega social platforms and their censorship. Musk has almost 8 million followers on Twitter, and he asked them if a new social platform was needed. “Given that Twitter serves as the de facto public town square, failing to adhere to free speech principles fundamentally undermines democracy. What should be done?”((Khaled, Fatma. “Elon Musk Asks if ‘New Platform’ Needed as Twitter Slammed on Free Speech.” Newsweek, 26 March 2022. https://www.newsweek.com/elon-musk-asks-if-new-platform-needed-twitter-slammed-free-speech-1692192. 1 April 2022))

Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube (owned by Google) yield massive power over American citizens and their freedom of expression.

The recent controversy over the transgender Penn State University swimmer Lea Thomas((Johnson, Greg. “Thomas concludes spectacular season with national title.” Penn Today, March 20th 2022. https://penntoday.upenn.edu/news/thomas-concludes-spectacular-season-national-title. March 23rd 2022)) is a perfect example I addressed in a previous post. School officials told the girls on the team if they spoke negatively about the controversy, they would be removed from the swim team and never get a job offer. 

“Those who call for censorship in the name of the oppressed ought to recognize it is never the oppressed who determine the bounds of censorship.” – Human rights activist Aryeh Neier

The Penn State officials displayed cancel culture at its best. It took former Olympic medalist Nancy Hogshead-Makar to speak out for the young women on the Penn State swim team. The girls told her that if the media reached out, they were warned by school officials not to talk to them. Through the Olympian, the girls said, “We support Lia’s mental health, and we ask Penn and the Ivy League to support ours as well.”1 

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” – George Orwell

Yes, this is a complex issue. However, it should be evident to all that have given this any consideration; men should compete against men, and women should compete against women in sports. Sounds logical and straightforward; yet, universities and our government create policies that do not consider the consequences of transgenders competing. Who is paying the price? The athletes who are not transgender, in particular women. 

Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy. – Proverbs 31:8-9

But imagine for a moment if you had a good friend or family member who is transgender; most of us would approach the issue differently because it is not an issue anymore but a person. When faced with that person, it should change your heart, but not your theology. 

Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person. – Colossians 4:6

Simple Science

What is the solution for this complicated topic? It is not to allow women carte blanche to compete against women; the transgenders who are in the process of hormone therapy and taking testosterone will have a significant advantage in competitive sports. 

The Mayo Clinic reports women to expect the following when taking masculinizing hormone therapy. 

  • Stopping your period. 
  • Voice deepening. 
  • Facial and body hair growth.
  • Body fat redistribution. 
  • Clitoral enlargement and vaginal atrophy. 
  • Increased muscle mass and strength. 

“You’ll begin masculinizing hormone therapy by taking testosterone. Typically, your doctor will prescribe a low dose and slowly increase the dosage over a period of months. Testosterone is given either by injection or a gel applied to the skin.”2

I am not sure what the solution is concerning transgenders in sports, but I know it is not to shut down the opinions and thoughts of anyone who disagrees with you. 

Have I then become your enemy by telling you the truth? – Galatians 4:16

“This is slavery, not to speak one’s thought.” – Euripides

The system of inclusion and tolerance espoused by the left threatens women to remain silent, which should tell you something is dreadfully wrong, and most Americans know it. Progressives know they dare not define what a woman is for fear of retribution, but also, since they define gender as shifting, fluid, adaptable to the individual, they can’t explain the label of a woman

“The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use them.” – Philip K. Dick

This became glaringly obvious when Senator Marsha Blackburn asked Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown to define what a woman is; Judge Brown couldn’t. Senator Blackburn responded, “The fact that you can’t give me a straight answer about something as fundamental as what a woman is underscores the dangers of the kind of progressive education that we are hearing about,” she said. “Just last week, an entire generation of young girls watched as our taxpayer-funded institutions permitted a biological man to compete and be a biological woman in the N.C.A.A. swimming championships. What message do you think this sends to girls who aspire to compete and win in sports at the highest levels?”3 

For some, the answer is as unmistakable as a penis caught in a zipper (granted, only 1/2 of my readers will truly appreciate that example), but Judge Brown couldn’t answer the question. Why? Because you can’t pin gender on anyone, it is fluid and is entirely up to the individual, according to liberal progressives. I would then ask, how can we create laws to protect women’s rights if we can’t even define what a woman is? Yet this fundamental truth is a severe dilemma for the progressives, but they will not even acknowledge it. Furthermore, if you quote the science of XX chromosomes in the gender debate, you will be silenced for hate speech and then shamed into submission. 

“I may not agree with you, but I will defend to the death your right to make an ass of yourself.”– Oscar Wilde

Diminishing Freedoms

A new poll by the New York Times and Siena College found cancel culture, or more specifically, the diminishing freedoms of our First Amendments rights, conscious in the minds of Americans. For example, only 34% of Americans feel all Americans fully enjoy the freedom of speech.((The Editorial Board. “America Has a Free Speech Problem.” New York Times, New York, 18 March 2022, https://www.nytimes.com/2022/03/18/opinion/cancel-culture-free-speech-poll.html. 24 March 2022)) Furthermore, 84% said the lack of free speech has become a ‘very serious’ or ‘somewhat serious’ problem. “Americans do not speak freely in everyday situations because of fear of retaliation or harsh criticism.”4

PragerU  has certainly experienced that on Youtube, now owned by Google. Here is the list of videos that Youtube has removed.  PragerU is not alone in this; Youtube has removed many conservative videos because they don’t fall in step with the party line. 

Just before the elections of 2020, both Twitter and Facebook censored the New York Post on the story of Hunter Biden’s laptop and financial dealing in Ukraine and China. Now, two years later, the censored story we find had teeth. 

George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley said there is a “view that an indictment against Hunter Biden is likely.”5He was reacting to The New York Times story confirming the legitimacy of the Hunter Biden Laptop. Did you hear any of this on CNN, NBC, USAToday? 

The New York Times reported, “…prosecutors had investigated payments and gifts Mr. Biden or his associates had received from foreign interests, including a vehicle paid for using funds from a company associated with a Kazakh oligarch and a diamond from a Chinese energy tycoon. Prosecutors also sought documents related to corporate entities through which Mr. Biden and his associates conducted business with interests around the world.”6 The Times also reported, “Those emails were obtained by The New York Times from a cache of files that appears to have come from a laptop abandoned by Mr. Biden in a Delaware repair shop.”6

As the social media powerhouses Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter continue to filter to fit their view, ensuring political correctness, our freedom of speech slowly evaporates. 

“Political correctness is tyranny; just tyranny with manners.” – Charlton Heston

The New York Times reported when Russia blocked Facebook and Twitter last month, it startled Chinese Internet users. Many did not realize that Russia allowed that kind of Western influence in their country. “When Russia blocked Facebook and limited Twitter this month, many Chinese internet users were surprised. Wait a moment, they said: The Russians could use Facebook and Twitter? Both social media platforms have been banned in China since 2009.”7

“Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.” – Harry S. Truman.

Just a few years ago, Russia began to learn from the best (China) on how to control its country’s population and suppress undesired thoughts or words that some of the more independent thinkers might consider. Unfortunately, the invasion of Ukraine has only hastened the desire and implementation among the Russian Olgargy and government authorities. 

In 2015 China’s censorship czars spoke to leaders in Russia on how to control social media and the flow of information. Lu Wei told his audience at the forum, “Unlimited freedom can lead to terrorism,” and Fang Binxing known in China as the father of the Great Firewall said, “If borders exist, they exist in cyberspace too.”7

Under Xi and Lu, China has advanced the “doctrine of cyberspace sovereignty,” which would see the Internet turned into national Internets, in other words, country-specific, each with its own controls and boundaries. In large part, many countries have already experienced that, and our own country is making inroads toward that model. Lu Wei has since fallen out of favor. Found guilty of corruption in China, he took millions in bribes, but his ideas continue to influence China’s policies.((Griffiths, James. Jiang, Steven. “Former Chinese internet czar Lu Wei sentenced to 14 years in prison for bribery.” CNN. 26 March 2019, https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/26/asia/lu-wei-china-sentenced-corruption-intl/index.html 26 March 2022))

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 2:12

The editorial Board of the New York Times and the Pew Research Center reports that America is experiencing a “…a crisis of confidence around one of America’s most basic values. Freedom of speech and expression is vital to human beings’ search for truth and knowledge about our world. A society that values freedom of speech can benefit from the full diversity of its people and their ideas. At the individual level, human beings cannot flourish without the confidence to take risks, pursue ideas and express thoughts that others might reject.”8

“The only thing that should be upheld at all costs and without qualification is the right of free expression, because if that goes, then so do all other claims of right as well.” – Atheist Christopher Hitchens

I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speakMatthew 12:26

Have you experienced this yet? If not, your time will come. Here in America you are losing our fundamental right to speak out against what is considered mainstream thought. If your opinion does not fall in step with what is deemed tolerant, politically correct, inclusive, and gender-free, you will be silenced, shamed, and shunned.

We can’t debate bad ideas with good ones without freedom of speech. Abolishing the freedom of speech is the tool of dictators, oppressors, and tyrants. You should be concerned with our country’s direction concerning freedom of speech. If not, the time will come when you are concerned it will be too late, and your voice will be silenced. After that, your vote.
