Unhinged “teachers” pushing kids to use “transition closets” at school and keep secrets from their parents

Are you familiar with “transition closets?” In simple terms, they are the primary reason why parents need to homeschool their children.

PJ Media, citing a report in the Epoch Times, reports that the so-called “trans closets” have been making an appearance in public schools throughout California and elsewhere.

For people who opposed gay marriage when it was legalized by the Supreme Court years ago, there was a concern that this was only the first step, that the alphabet mafia would take this small victory and continue pushing their radical agenda. “Love is love” is one thing…targeting our kids is a far different conversation.

For example, as PJ Media notes, last year, a group called the “San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus” got itself in a jackpot after it released a song whereby the chorus bragged that:

“We’ll convert your children…We’re coming for your children.” This was a clear warning that the radical LGBTLMNOP were targeting children. As we have seen over the past year, nothing could be clearer.

Back to “transition closets.” In a piece in PJ Media in March, Megan Fox explained the idea behind them.

“The whole point of a trans closet in a school with minors is to allow students to hide their ‘gender identity’ from their parents.”

In other words, little Johnny gets dressed for schools in clothing appropriate for little boys.

However when he gets to school, little Johnny, with full approval by the public schools goes into a “trans closet,” changes into girls’ clothes and spends the day playing make believe as a “girl.”

At the end of the day, Johnny goes back to the “trans closet,” changes back into his gender appropriate clothing and goes back home, his parents none the wiser that the school for which they pay taxes has contributed to their child’s psychological decline.

Here is Amaure Rousch, CEO of The Transition Closet:

Unhinged "teachers" pushing kids to use "transition closets" at school and keep secrets from their parents
Amare Roush, CEO of The Transition Closet. These people help influence your kids.

The fact of the matter is, public school teachers (oh, it happens in private schools too, make no mistake about it) aren’t even trying to necessarily hide what they’re doing any longer. A teacher in California on TikTok (where a collection of social misfits congregate) said exactly what they are up to:

“The goal of the transition closet is for our students to wear the clothes that their parents approve of, come to school and then swap out into the clothes that fit who they truly are.”

In other words, public schools are engaged in circumventing the will of parents and are actively working to engage in nothing less than child abuse. Yet, they get away with it.

Last week at a White House event, our delusional “commander in chief” actually said the quiet part out loud, when he asserted that children don’t belong to parents “when they’re in the classroom.”

“They’re all our children. And the reason you’re the teachers of the year is because you recognize that. They’re not somebody else’s children. They’re like yours when they’re in the classroom,” Biden said, according to Yahoo News.

Later in his remarks, Biden railed against politicians “trying to ban books, even math books.” What he failed to mention is the books that some are attempting to ban may indeed be “math books,” however they relate math to concepts such as critical race theory or LGBTQ indoctrination. They are clearly being used to push a radical left agenda.

According to PJ Media, the teacher in the TikTok video isn’t just a wacko low-level teacher. His name is Thomas Martin-Edwards, founder of an organization called the “Queer Teacher Fellowship,” and is listed on his Twitter page as the assistant principal of San Ramon Valley High School. However it is believed he may in fact have moved on, since Epoch Times has him listed as a Spanish teacher in the Oakland (CA) Unified School District.

Epoch Times notes that Martin-Edwards “is also transgender. He has posted himself in the classroom showing off the stilettos he wears to school.” The question is, why? Why do these teachers find it necessary to discuss what they do in the privacy of their homes with their students? Do straight teachers discuss their sexual adventures with their students in the classroom?

We would submit that if they did, the police would be knocking on their doors and they would also be seeking new employment. Why is it different with the alphabet community?

A more important question is why are teachers and school administrators trying to hide what they’re doing from parents? If what they are doing is indeed “normal” as they assert, why are they doing so in secret?

According to Amare Roush, who founded The Transition Closet claims the secrecy is being implemented for the students’ “protection:”

“We do provide a safe space for kids whose parents are not accepting, because it’s known to help lower the suicide rate. These kids are going to do it anyway, we just want a way to provide them with a way to do it safely to where they’re not wearing clothes that are too small for them, or doing so in a way that’s going to get them hurt by their parents.”

Did you get that? They’re trying to “save” the kids from their parents. Unbelievable.

How much is this new woke educational system actually contributing to the so-called “gender confusion” these kids are experiencing? As PJ Media notes, would kids even give this stuff a second thought “if teachers weren’t presenting it as something good and acceptable and even heroic in the face of parental opposition and obstinacy? Would they do it if doing it weren’t celebrated and lauded everywhere?” We propose probably not. But since this now appears to be the “cool” thing to do, the shiny new object, obviously kids are attracted to it.

The presence of these trans closets is fairly new in the K-12 world, however, have been apparently available on college campuses for years. Epoch Times notes that “Marshall University, the University of Arkansas, Penn State, and the University of California are among colleges that have been operating trans closets for years.”

While our primary adversaries in the world—Russia and China—are on the move academically and militarily, the United States is engaged in woke transgender indoctrination of our youngest and most vulnerable. What does this portend for the future of our country?

Rome, anyone?

The following includes editorial commentary which is the opinion of the writer. 

WESTFIELD, NJ- While Florida has taken steps to protect children (at least up to age nine), liberal hell holes such as New Jersey have gone in the opposite direction.

According to the New York Post, second graders in New Jersey will be required to take classes including discussions in “gender identity” because six and even-year-olds apparently don’t need to concentrate on learning to read and write, as well as other skills that will actually help them.

According to Fox News, children in the second grade will partake in a 30-minute lesson called “Pink, Blue and Purple,” which will teach the children to define “gender, gender identity, and gender role stereotypes. But fear not…they’re not trying to “trans” the kids or anything.

Moreover, the lesson includes instructions for teachers to advise their students that no matter whether they have a penis or a vagina, their sexual identity is up to them, based on materials handed out to parents at a Westfield Board of Education meeting in February. The materials were also posted online.

The lesson plan told children that they “might feel like” they’re a boy “even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are ‘girl’ parts.”

“You might feel like you’re a girl even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are ‘boy’ parts. And you might not feel like you’re a boy or a girl, but you’re a little bit of both. No matter how you feel, you’re perfectly normal.”

Sorry, but this is sick and it is evil. Want to know why parents are pissed off and have had enough? Right here should tell you. It is amazing that taxpayer money funds this BS for a group that accounts for less than 1% of the population.

How long is it, given the slippery slope we’ve been heading down especially over the past year, that schools start teaching children that it’s ok for “minor attracted persons” to touch their private parts?

Think it couldn’t happen? If you were told two years ago that kids would be instructed in public schools that a child’s sexual identity is not a matter of biology but feelings, would you have believed it? Not likely.

Time was, teaching children about the “birds and the bees” was up to parents, but that is clearly no longer the case. It started out with “sex education” in high school and over time, that started to trickle down to younger students. And now here we are.

Another lesson plan for children in second grade is called “Understanding Our Bodies.” That includes illustrated discussions of human genitals for kids as young as seven so they can use “medically accurate names” for their private parts. Not happy to leave well enough along, the lesson also says:

“Tell students: ‘There are some body parts that mostly just girls have and some parts that mostly just boys have,’” it says. [emphasis added]

The note to teachers further says: “Being a boy or a girl doesn’t have to mean you have those parts, but for most people that is how their bodies are.”

Contrast this nonsense to the Parental Protection Bill passed by the Florida legislature and signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis, which  forbids this satanic nonsense being taught to children up to age nine, which truth be told should still be older. But at least it’s a start.

The planned lessons in New Jersey are supposed to go into effect in September, however some parents and New Jersey lawmakers are appalled by the content.

“I am honestly appalled at this curriculum,” Maria DeMaio-Esposito told the Asbury Park Press. She is a mother of two.

“I am debating whether to place my child in a private school if I can afford it. Is this curriculum really necessary? Children need to stay children. Their innocence is beautiful and I do not want their little minds filled with this very adult topic.”

While parents have the ability to opt their children out of taking the lessons, some parents feel such a policy will leave kids stigmatized.

“My granddaughter is going to be entering eighth grade, if she opts out of a class, she’s going to be looked at by her peers in a different manner,” Paula McCarthy-Mammana said, noting the curriculum “makes me sick.”

“She may be bullied or harassed and I don’t agree with a child being targeted because of family moral issues.”

Meanwhile, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) blasted the curriculum, telling Fox News: “I think this is just a further indication of crazy liberal policies of my successor, Phil Murphy, who is in the progressive movement.”

“He’s on the left of the progressive movement, and this kind of stuff should not be going on.”

Also weighing in was New Jersey State Senator Tom Kean Jr. (R), who slammed the Garden State’s “outrageous” gender studies push.

“Parents rightfully were angry at these standards and stood up across New Jersey, Republicans and Democrats, alike to make sure that their kids have the education—core curriculum education—that they deserve,” Kean told Martha MacCallum on America’s Newsroom on Fox.

The backlash has New Jersey’s far-left governor rethinking whether the leaked curriculum is appropriate for second-graders.

That didn’t placate Kean, however, who called Murphy “out of touch,” noting that he was only “reassessing” the curriculum but had yet to mandate any changes. Murphy accused his opponents of “misrepresenting” the lessons, but what we addressed above came right out of the curriculum. It seems pretty clear they are attempting to indoctrinate young children in transgender ideology.

“We need to make sure that the parents’ voices are heard,” Kean Jr. said. “I’ve started a website yesterday called parentsvoicecoalition.com, so we can continue to advocate for the parents to make sure these educational standards never see the light of day in New Jersey for kids as young as kindergarten through second grade.”

Meanwhile State Sen. Holly Schepisi told Fox News, “as a mom and a legislator, I can appreciate the need for students to receive age-appropriate instruction, but this is beyond the pale.

“We knew that when Gov. Murphy used the cover of the pandemic to push these new standards through that something was terribly wrong, and now we can clearly see why they needed to do this in secret,” she said.

“The agenda has swung so far left in an attempt to sexualize our precious children that parents are fighting back.”

The superintendent of the Westfield schools, Raymond Gonzalez attempted to downplay the curriculum to Fox News, claiming that the lessons were “a sample list of resources aligned to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards to be considered as school districts work on revisions to the health and [physical education] curriculum.”

“We made it clear at the meeting and subsequent meetings that these are resources only—they are not state-mandated—and that the district is in the process of developing its revised curriculum to meet state standards.”

Perhaps Attorney General Merrick Garland and his Department of Justice should re-focus their assets on the institutional child abuse that is being propagated by state legislatures and complicit school boards across the country instead of harassing parents who are concerned about that very thing.

TALLAHASSEE, FL- America’s governor strikes again! According to the New York Post, the Florida Department of Education has engaged in a housecleaning of math textbooks which concern themselves more with indoctrination of kids than teaching math concepts.

That indoctrination includes inclusion of critical race theory, along with a number of other prohibited subjects.

The Post noted that the FDE rejected some 41 percent of publisher submissions under a range of reasons, including “references to critical race theory” and adherence to Common Core standards.

“It seems that some publishers attempted to slap a coat of paint on an old house build on the foundation of Common Core, and indoctrinating concepts like race essentialism, especially, bizarrely, for elementary school students,” said Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

The Florida DOE had invited publishers to submit math materials for inclusion in the state’s public school math curriculum in 2021.

According to the DOE, 21 percent of the titles rejected were booted “because they incorporate prohibited topics or unsolicited strategies, including CRT.”

DeSantis famously banned CRT as a component in the curriculum of Florida schools, noting that it is corrosive, focusing on racial differences while minimizing “individual agency.”

“We won’t allow Florida tax dollars to be spent teaching kids to hate our country or to hat each other,” the governor said when he announced the legislation last year.

The Washington Examiner noted that the Sunshine State rejected 54 of 132 math books submitted to be included in the 2022-23 math curriculum.

The DOE announced last week that a majority of the rejected books were for elementary students in grades K-5.

“Despite rejecting 41 percent of materials submitted, every core mathematic course and grade is covered with at least one textbook,” the DOE said.

“I’m grateful that Commissioner Corcoran and his team at the Department have conducted such a  thorough vetting of these textbooks to ensure they comply with the law,” DeSantis said.

Common Core was eliminated in Florida by DeSantis in 2019 via an executive order. Common Core set a number of sometimes confusing and bizarre standards in math and English and has been widely criticized by parents as being extremely confusing.

Meanwhile last year, the DOE informed publishers that school textbooks would be required to align to state standards and avoid references to so-called “unsolicited strategies, such as social emotional learning and culturally responsible teaching.”

“It is unfortunate that several publishers, especially at the elementary school grade levels, have ignored this clear communication and have attempted to slip rebranded instructional materials based on Common Core Standards into Florida’s classrooms, while others have included prohibited and divisive concepts such as the tenants of CRT or other unsolicited strategies of indoctrination—despite FDOE’s prior notification,” the state’s Board of Education said.

Meanwhile as expected, Democrats railed against the DOE’s action, with Democratic state Rep. Anna Eskamani leading the way.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if Florida Republican leaders are preparing to ban Algebra from high schools,” Eskamani tweeted. “They object to the subliminal use of [brackets] as an indoctrination to the concept of inclusion, they don’t like the equal sign, and they hate solving problems.”

Ah yes, saw what you did there. LOL.

Funny, the only ones we’ve seen wanting to ban algebra are leftists, led by a liberal professor from Queens College back in 2016.

The Examiner noted that publishers can appeal the rejections and may also revise their submitted textbook bids.

Want a few examples of how CRT and other leftist ideology is being injected into school curriculum, including math?

Here ya go!

Following the early October announcement from the Department of Justice to target parents opposed to aspects like critical race theory who’ve allegedly engaged in “harassment, intimidation and threats” against various school boards across the country, a concerning connection has come to light regarding AG Merrick Garland’s daughter.

The U.S. Attorney General’s daughter happens to be married to the co-founder of a company that peddles resources to schools to foster more “equitable” school environments – a term that often accompanies CRT proponents.

According to a 2018 article from the New York Times, Rebecca Garland married Xan Tanner, which Tanner happens to be one of the co-founders of Panorama Education.

According to the company website’s “About” page, their products are already being used to “support over 13 million students in 21,000 schools, 1,500 districts, and 50 states.”

Products that are offered to school districts include educational progress dashboards called “Student Success”, another dashboard called “Social Emotional Learning”, and “Feedback Surveys” that schools can utilize to address all matters ranging from student to staff concerns and desires.

What has the potential to raise some eyebrows would be the “Social Emotional Learning” product sold by the company run in part by the son-in-law of AG Garland, as it seems to have elements of CRT basked into the product sold by the company.

According to the topics listed within the “Social Emotional Learning” section of the product information, some of the “topics for students, teachers and staff” address the following:

  • Diversity and Inclusion – How diverse, integrated, and fair school is for students from different races, ethnicities, or cultures.
  • Cultural Awareness and Action – How often students learn about, discuss, and confront issues of race, ethnicity, and culture in school.
  • Social Awareness – How well students consider the perspectives of others and empathize with them.
  • Cultural Awareness and Action (Student Focus) – How well a school supports students in learning about, discussing, and confronting issues of race, ethnicity, and culture.
  • Cultural Awareness and Action (Adult Focus) – How well a school supports faculty and staff in learning about, discussing, and confronting issues of race, ethnicity, and culture.

These aforementioned areas all are part of CRT-based efforts, creating a hyper-focus on aspects like race and ethnicity that many parents across the country have voiced concerns over their propensity to foster identity politics in a school setting.

And as mentioned earlier, AG Garland released a statement on October 4th in light of parents attending and voicing concerns at school board meetings all over the United States that alluded to said acts as being instances of “harassment, intimidation and threats of violence.”

While the Department of Justice release proclaimed that they’re only responding to a “rise in criminal conduct directed toward school personnel”, this alleged criminal conduct the Justice Department aims to address stems from the hyperbolic claims made by the National School Boards Association in late September.

In a September 29th letter to President Biden from the NSBA, the association claimed that parents voicing opposition to CRT or mask mandates in school is “the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.”

While a singular instance in their September 29th letter noted that one person “in Illinois for aggravated battery and disorderly conduct during a school board meeting,” every other complaint lodged in the letter pertained to things like angry letters, being called mean names like “Marxist”, and dealing with “anti-mask proponents” who cause “chaos during board meetings.”

Revealed: Verizon promotes anti-police speakers and pushes Critical Race Theory in employee training

(Originally published August 30th, 2021)

The following article contains editorial content written by a current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.

According to a report from City Journal, Verizon has put together an internal program that is pushing the likes of critical race theory on employees, as well as championing ideas like defunding the police and the concept of “white fragility”.

Investigative journalist Christopher Rufo was able to obtain some of the internal documents from a whistleblower from the company, outside of the already heavily populated “Race & Social Justice Action Toolkit” Verizon hosts on their website pushing similar concepts.

There was a time where new hires and employees at a company would go to work and be trained on work-related tasks, company policies, and other areas relevant to ideal job performance.

Verizon is of course a wireless network operator – meaning the company’s bread and butter comes from various iterations of wireless phone services. Yet, City Journal contributor Rufo found that Verizon is dipping its toes into indoctrinating their employees for matters not related to the work Verizon does:

“According to documents that I have obtained from a whistleblower, Verizon launched the ‘Race & Social Justice’ initiative last year and has created an extensive race reeducation program based on the core tenets of critical race theory, including ‘systemic racism,’ ‘white fragility,’ and ‘intersectionality’.”

According to one of these crash courses being taught to Verizon employees, dubbed as “Conscious Inclusion & Anti-Racism”, employees are asked to “deconstruct their racial and sexual identities and, according to their position on the ‘privilege’ hierarchy, embark on a lifelong ‘anti-racism journey’”:

From there, employees are reportedly asked to list their race, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, religion, education level, profession, and their sexual orientation on this official company worksheet.

Apparently, then employees are supposed to take that information on the worksheet and apply it to the theory of intersectionality, which is a huge part of critical race theory that determines whether someone fits in the category of the oppressed or that of an oppressor.

This is what some people jokingly coined as the Oppression Olympics, which simply reduces an individual to their immutable characteristics to see who could be thought of as more oppressed.

Basically, this train of thought would deduce that a straight black male is of higher victimhood status than perhaps a gay white female, but a black trans woman would trump them both on the victimhood status.

Needless to say, it’s not only shoddy social science – it’s dangerously divisive rhetoric that needlessly segments people into group identity, which leads to group-think.

In one of the videos related to the Verizon curriculum around this effort, former Global Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion officer Ramcess Jean-Louis is featured on a video titled “Let’s talk about privilege”, where he asserts the following:

“As a black man in [America], we are viewed as less than. We are viewed as inferior. We are viewed that our life is not as valuable as anyone else.”

The sort of rhetoric Jean-Louis is peddling in the video is an instance of speaking in absolutes, which is the habit of describing a feeling or a circumstance in concrete and absolute terms – such as when he’s saying all black Americans “are viewed as less than”, “viewed as inferior”, and “viewed that our life is not as valuable.”

This is absolutist nonsense, as it completely shows a cognitive bias that’s characterized by completely ignoring nuance – because it asserts that all non-black Americans see black Americans as lesser.

Rufo’s report noted that Verizon is also teaching employees about “microaggressions” and how they may be unconsciously doing harm to coworkers by engaging in actions or speech that no normal person would recognize as offensive:

“The diversity trainers explain that employees should not commit ‘microaggressions’ and ‘microinequities,’ defined as ‘indirect expressions of racism, sexism, ageism, ableism, or another form of prejudice’ that are ‘seemingly innocuous’ and often ‘unconscious or subtle,’ but make members of certain racial and sexual classes ‘feel different, violated, or unsafe.’ Members of the privileged classes must instead engage in the ‘lifelong process’ of demonstrating ‘accountability with marginalized individuals.’”

In a sense, Verizon is warning employees to stop doing/saying potentially offensive things that no reasonable person would raise an eyebrow at – as both the concepts of microaggressions and microinequities aim to address general non-issues or non-inflammatory language.

For instance, a prime example of what a “microaggression” would be is someone talking about a date they had not going well because their date seemed “kind of dumb” or “air-headed” – well, in the world of microaggressions, that would be an infraction showing one’s “ableism”.

And Verizon also hosted another contentious topic with this social justice indoctrination: police defunding. According to Rufo’s report, Verizon hosted a criminal justice reform speaker that championed defunding the police.

Adrian Burrell from Verizon’s speaking event stated the following about policing in America:

“I feel like over policing doesn’t work. And I feel like those same resources that are aimed towards hiring [police officers] with racist biases…need to be aimed at bringing more resources to the community at a at a root level, and then you just won’t need so many police.”

“If you want to call that ‘abolishing the police,’ or if you want to call that ‘defunding the police,’ so be it.”

So, not only are Verizon employees learning how to do their job, but they’re also learning that they’re either oppressors or oppressed, that America is systemically racist, and that police should be defunded.
