Transgender Toolkit Demolishes Boys and Girls

"Transgender" ideology is taking over the public school system with blinding speed.

By Jennifer Hartline Published on July 30, 2017

Our children are the primary targets of the inhuman sexual devolution presently overtaking the country. We can’t afford to pretend otherwise.

We must also disabuse ourselves of the fantasy that we can happily coexist with this new Gnosticism. We cannot.

Let’s also realize that affirming the truth of the human person is not hateful, intolerant or oppressive in any way. Insisting on sanity is not unloving.

“Transgender” ideology is taking over the public school system with blinding speed. Even kindergartners must be indoctrinated. In Minnesota, a new “toolkit” is being issued for all teachers in all grades, K – 12. 

Teachers can no longer call the kids boys or girls, but only “students” or “scholars.” They are instructed to ask each child what pronoun the child prefers.

The toolkit attempts to ‘ensure a safe and supportive transition’ for children becoming a different gender at school.

See that? It’s settled now. Children can become a different gender. Children — who can barely ride a bike, who may still need help tying their shoes, who generally aren’t allowed to make their own meal choices — can now decide to “become” the opposite gender. And everyone around them must encourage them in that “becoming.”

Are you really a boy, or are you a girl in a boy’s body? Do you want to stay a boy, or would you like to become a girl? Would you rather be no gender at all?

No one is permitted anymore to bring the child back to reality.

What responsible adult would have agreed to this abusive indoctrination 5 or even 3 years ago?

The Minnesota Department of Education encourages parents to have ‘acceptance and support of their child’s gender identity’ if they want their child to perform well at school.

Got that, Mom and Dad? Don’t anchor your child in biological reality. Placate the delusion that Johnny can “become” a girl or Johnny won’t do well in school. Johnny and Jane must be encouraged to construct their lives based only on feelings.

Is It Really That Bad?

The latency period of our children is now being utterly wiped out by a tyrannical sexual agenda that permits no dissent or even neutrality.

This is critical, so stop and ponder that for a moment. The very healthy, very normal latency period of childhood is being deliberately wiped out for the sake of an irrational, scientifically-unsound, and genuinely inhuman sexual ideology.

This mad and insatiable agenda will not allow children to be children. They certainly cannot have sane ideas of male and female and the purpose of sexuality. They must be made to question their own identity and doubt their own bodies before they’ve even learned how babies are made.

They must become good little soldiers in the mission to dehumanize human beings. 

And suppose a young lady is brave enough to object to having to shower with a boy in her locker room? Her “intolerance” will be dealt with:

The department suggests that school officials should segregate students who feel uncomfortable by a biological boy who identifies as a girl joining the girls’ locker room.

Privacy objections raised by a student in interacting with a transgender or gender nonconforming student may be addressed by segregating the student raising the objection provided that the action of the school officials does not result in stigmatizing the transgender and gender nonconforming students. (emphasis mine)

We can single-out the “objecting” student and segregate them. That’s acceptable. The girl who has a healthy and appropriate objection to sharing a restroom or locker room with a boy is the one who has a problem now. She will no doubt be stigmatized as an intolerant, hateful bigot.

So yes, it really is that bad.

So What Are We Going To Do About It?

Our culture is in big trouble, that’s for sure. Our only hope is repentance and conversion.

  • Pray. For your children, for our nation. This is not a battle against flesh and blood, but against powers and principalities.
  • Keep your moral house in order. If we don’t live and model for our children the virtues of chastity, purity, faithfulness, temperance, prudence, and charity, they won’t live it either.
  • Teach your children the natural law. Read What We Can’t Not Know. Learn how to explain to them the ontology (the “is-ness”), the nature of things which reveals to us the purpose of things. Why can’t you sew a dress with a fork? Why would you not eat your dinner with a needle? Is your heart supposed to digest your food? Why not?
    The natural law is also revealed to us in our bodies, created male and female by God, in His image. Our bodies are not independent of who we are. Our bodies tell us who we are.
  • Teach your children logic. Get back to rational thinking based on objective reality, not feelings. Feelings are not facts.
  • Teach your children the fact that biological sex cannot be changed. It is not merely “assigned” at birth. Sex and gender are not independent of one another. “Sex is a physical reality and gender is the social expression of that reality.”* There simply is no such thing as a male woman or a female man. Biology isn’t bigotry.
  • When (not if, when) the tyrannical sexual agenda shows itself in your district, do not passively accept it. We cannot leave our children to shoulder the burden of dealing with this madness. It is unacceptable for teachers or counselors to suggest to a young child that he can reject his physical body and “transition” into being a girl. Our daughters should not have to just shut up and accept having to share bathrooms and showers with boys.

There is no making nice with this sexual devolution. Let’s settle that here and now. There will be no peaceful coexistence. And it shouldn’t be because the deceived advocates of this ideology won’t allow it. It should be because we — the Body of Christ — will not surrender our children to madness.

P.S. If you still think this might be Chicken Little-ish, consider the rapidly rising percentage of teens who now “identify” as “trans” or gender non-conforming. It’s a real safe bet that in 5 years, that percentage will have doubled or more. Our children are being gravely harmed by this madness.

    LOL! Lets see how nice we can be to the perverts, huh? Maybe one of them will come to Jesus!! Meanwhile, the entire country is going down the toilet, your children either become perverts, or have to put up with those who have already taken the plunge into insanity!!! Enjoy.

  • Kevin Carr

    This sets them up to become “god”. The Bible tells us “male and female he made them. Adam the first man had Eve for his wife, not any other arrangement. To change the arrangement is to say God was/is wrong, and now I can change the set up.

    This is the successful assault on American Society through our public school system by Planned Parenthood. Check it out yourself. Schools across the country are using their curriculum. Defund Planned Parenthood TODAY!

    • Paul

      Actually need to defund public school. Parents hand their kids over to an institution that hates all things Christian and is rapidly filling the void with atheism, secular humanism and perversion. The fact an institution is capable of such control over your kids is enough reason to rid ourselves of it. Retreating to private or home schooling isn’t the long term answer either, they will find a way to enforce their insanity there as well if allowed to thrive in public school.

      • D_OK

        YES! The public school system is in the process of promoting evil.

  • Paul

    Jennifer, you say to not passively accept this, to what extremes are you willing to go to defend your child?

    • Eric

      I pulled my kids out of public school and homeschooled them. I know this is not a option for everyone but this worked for me. Pray for Betsy Devos and all those fighting for school choice. School Choice is not a what if scenario anymore, it must happen. The times we live are changing drastically. They demand a drastic way of changing the way education our children. In my opinion, i wish i had the option to train my children the classical way, theology , philosophy , ethics, greek , latin. I want them to learn logic , to make decisions based on reason and logic , not emotion or the way they feel. Others may have a different approach , but in the end we want the same thing and School Choice can make that happen.

    In reality most Christians will choose their comfy lifestyle rather than pull their kids from public schools. Will remain apathetic and sit on the sidelines politically. Will take it and more.

    • Paul

      Apathy is a big part of how we’ve gotten to this point

    • James

      Most churches will choose to build new activity centers instead of affordable schools.

    Outstanding article. Should shake us all.
