“A little child shall lead them,” painting by James L. Johnson.
And a little child shall lead them: There appears to be increasing evidence that it isn’t just the parents that are becoming aware and opposed to the queer and Marxist agenda that the public schools and leftist governments have been force feeding down children’s throats for the past decade. It now appears the students themselves are beginning to rise up in rebellion.
This story from May 29, 2023 illustrates the point:
Lakeridge High School in Oregon recently ran into an interesting problem: boys were ripping tampon dispensers off the walls of their bathrooms and dumping them in the toilet. The school has formally asked the boys to stop destroying the free menstrual products they are being provided with, and gave parents resources on “menstruation, menstrual products, sexuality, and health” in order to help them explain to their children that menstruation is normal for a “person that has a uterus.”
Why are there tampon dispensers in the boys’ bathroom to begin with? Oregon’s 2021 “Menstrual Dignity Act” requires all public schools to provide all students regardless of “gender, age, ability [and] socioeconomic status” with menstrual products in order to promote “privacy, inclusivity, access and education.” The educational impact of putting tampon dispensers in boys’ bathrooms, of course, is to inform children that boys can have periods, which is to say that girls can be boys.
Apparently, the boys at this Oregon school find this claim not only insulting, but absurd, and have been expressing their dissent quite forcefully, even though they know that the entire fascist leftist queer culture that runs their state will come down on them like a ton of bricks should they be caught.
Fortunately, there are no surveillance cameras in the boys’ bathroom, yet. This provides them a safe place to express their protest without being identified. (Consider how far we have fallen as a free nation: Not only do these students fear retribution for expressing their opinions, it is no longer considered ridiculous to someday expect surveillance cameras in bathrooms.)
Nor are these protests unique. The article at the link describes similar but far more public protests against the queer agenda in three Canadian schools. In one case, a student ripped down the queer flag to the cheers of hundreds of fellow students. In the other case, the one third of the student population boycotted an elementary school on the day the queer flag was raised there. And in the third case, students put together a petition demanding that all queer flags and posters be removed. To no one’s surprise, school officials refused, but then, these educators no longer are there to teach reading, writing, and arithmetic, but queer propaganda.
Last year I documented a number of similar protests by American students against mask and COVID jab mandates. There is also the recent case of a 12-year-old standing up to school officials when they tried to deny him his first amendment rights.
Unfortunately, though such examples are appearing more and more, their number remains rare. In every case, however, it appears that the protestors have had the quiet support of their peers. As noted by that 12-year-old whose shirt offended several school officials for stating simply that “There are only two genders,”
“Not one person — staff or student — told me that they were bothered by what I was wearing. Actually, just the opposite,” Liam said. “Several kids told me they supported my actions and that they wanted one too.”
I don’t think Liam’s experience is rare. Among the kids, I think there is a growing defiance to the sick agenda of the LBGTQBIPOQZQYXXX political movement, especially because the kids are seeing their parents becoming enraged and opposed to it as well.
In the end, this is the only solution to the cultural rot that now dominates our society. We adults can fight it, but in the end it is the next generation that must solve it. We adults must do everything we can to fan the flames of that growing student defiance, so that the flames become a roaring firestorm. Only then will the future be made truly secure.
