The connection between CRT and the trans/gay agenda

Some things, such as optical illusions, can hard to see at first, but once seen are clear. I came across a very clearly written post that connects some of the political / activist left’s action plan in a way that makes a whole lot of sense. The scariest part of it is that most of the average people pushing each of these things are basically good, well-meaning people, they will not see it, and think they are unrelated, and have no idea how much damaged they are doing. I’m including the full text as well as the links to the original posts, as it is more than likely one or both at some point will get nuked at some point.

The original Gab that lead me to it. The source thread.

Here is the text of the Josh Daws post, w/o comment:

I’m seeing a lot of people on the right share this meme. While it may be a strong satirical response to those who get lost in nuance, it fundamentally fails to recognize why the left wants to talk to your kids about sexuality. Let’s connect some dots. 🧵 1/23

The left doesn’t want to diddle kids. They want to create little revolutionaries. To do that they need to sever the bond between students and the parents they believe are raising their children to be hateful bigots. 2/23

[link to Twitter post that says]:
I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way🎶
Those aren’t just cheesy song lyrics to the left. Children are the key to societal transformation.

In order to sever the bond between parents and their children, the left is using a two-pronged approach. Critical Race Theory and radical gender ideology (properly known as Queer Theory) are not two unrelated sets of ideas. They are two parts of the same strategy. 3/23 
CRT is usually the first set of ideas to be introduced. This is often enough to radicalize racial minorities, but it’s merely step one for white (or white adjacent) students. 4/23 
CRT instills in these students a negative self-identity as they’re taught to believe they’re recipients of enormous privilege that was stolen from others and that they are complicit in historic and ongoing injustice. In child terms, they’re taught to believe they’re bad. 5/23 
Apart from the shame and guilt, this also gives them a worldview at odds with the one their parents grew up with and are trying to pass on to their kids. Step one is complete. 6/23 
Once CRT is done tearing down these kids and leaving them with a negative self-identity, Queer Theory (QT) is introduced and offers them a wide assortment of positive self-identities to choose from. 7/23 
Instead of living with the shame and guilt of being a member of the oppressive dominant culture, these students can be celebrated for coming out as gender nonbinary or pansexual. 8/23 
In an instant, these kids can trade their negative self-identity and all the accompanying guilt and shame of being an “oppressor” for a positive self-identity as a much-venerated “oppressed” minority. 9/23 
At this point, the left desperately wants this new identity to stay at school so it has time to be cemented before the parents find out. In the guise of helping these students, schools withhold this information about their child’s new identity from mom and dad. 10/23 
Once the parents do find out about their child’s new identity it’s firmly in place and an adversarial relationship between the child and parents has been manufactured. It takes extraordinarily deft parenting to repair the relationship once it has reached this stage. 11/23 
The parents’ tendency will be to overreact and push the child further into the arms of the woke radicals who now have the little revolutionary they wanted from the beginning. The bond between parents and child has been severed ending the perpetuation of hate and bigotry. 12/23 
The left is determined to replicate this process in as many families as they can using whatever means at their disposal. It’s not about diddling kids. It’s about capturing the minds of impressionable children. 13/23 
Unfortunately, this creates environments where actual predators can thrive. When young children are isolated from their parents, encouraged to adopt different beliefs, and keep secrets from their parents, they are made easy targets for abusers. 14/23 
“But my school has Christian teachers and a Christian principal. They couldn’t possibly have this agenda.” Aha. This is where we turn to @joe_rigney and connect another dot. 15/23
Hear me loud and clear on this. Most teachers love the kids in their classrooms and want only the best for them. They have had their empathy *for* these students weaponized *against* them by leftist activists promoting educational programs that sound nice and caring. 16/23
Highly empathetic teachers are being used to promote this agenda unaware of its insidious purpose. An example: I recently saw a teacher at a Christian school announce that she would no longer be using the words “mom”, “dad”, or “parents” in her classroom. 17/23
Her reason? She had just read a paper on the importance of making kids from non-traditional families feel included. She suggested replacing “Donuts with Dads” with “Bagels with Buds” or something of the such. 18/23
This sounds like a very considerate thing to do for kids who might feel different because they don’t have a dad or live with their grandparents, but its purpose is to subtly chip away at the very idea of the normative nuclear family (a stated goal of the BLM organization.) 19/23
Christians who think that we can embrace the ideas from CRT and reject radical gender ideology need to realize how the former is used to prepare kids to accept the latter. 20/23
These are your kids we’re talking about. The left wants them. They would love to sever your bond with them. They think your appeals to childhood innocence are an attempt to force heteronormativity on them. Seriously. They write papers on it. It’s not a secret agenda. 21/23
@mentionshas recorded a three-part series walking through this entire agenda by looking at primary sources. I highly recommend all parents invest the time to listen to them. 22/23
The meme I opened this 🧵 with is an easy response to the insanity we’re seeing today, but it’s not a great explanation. We should take the time to help people see how nice-sounding programs are being used in the classroom to create little activists and put kids in danger. 23/23

This is not so say there are not people who, without any outside influence, would not legitimately have from an organic root cause what the psych-guys call gender dysphoria. But not being happy with yourself to the extent its happening, and in the way it’s happening on a wide-spread basis, and how hard it’s being pushed by so many different left-leaning actors and organizations, and how politically and financially profitably it is being used by those actors, means it is much more likely than not that that the power-people pushing it are taking a page from the military training idea of “you have to break a man down [take away his flaws and weaknesses and make him a relatively blank slate] before you can build him up [make him into a “proper” soldier with the psychological conditioning you want them to have]”. The left is doing that to, attacking the vulnerable, deracinating them and making them hate and despise their own heritage and self, make them ashamed of who and what they are, then offering them a “brave” and “stunning” identity they can have pride in… but is a personal and societal literal dead end.

The fact that this is being pushed far and wide across America in schools everywhere should be noticed, and very concerning. Organically mis-wired people should not be treated badly, or as “special;” they are humans, too, deserving the same basic respect that any human does based upon their actions. People who are gas-lit into this behavior should be pitied and helped to get back on a more normal course. People who claim this and use it deliberately in a maliciously manipulative way deserve all the hate they get, as they are making those who are struggling with it legitimately have a much rougher time, and making it harder for those who realize they’ve been psychologically abused into a self-destructive course to admit they were led astray and get their problems straightened out.

As far as any of this relates to athletics, in my opinion no transgender should be allowed to compete in any athletic competition for score or awards. XX people play on women’s teams, XY people play on men’s teams, anyone claiming to be trans can play on practice squads and intramurals, but never for scholarships, competition teams, or trophies. In the workplace, they should keep their sex life to themselves, just like everyone else. “But it’s a part of my identity!” they may scream… I don’t care, shut up. My wife and kids are a part of my identity, but I have been told by the trans/gay lobby that I can’t talk about them because that would be exclusionary to those who are not married, or can’t have kids, or whatever. OK, fine, then you need to shut the hell up about how you are tucking your genitals until you have surgery, and what your preferred hormone therapy is, too.

If you are trans in the ordinary workplace, present as you’d like, and do so credibly, shut up about your sex life, and do your job competently, don’t make a huge deal out of it or or leverage it for personal gain, and there isn’t a problem. If you want to hit on someone, it’s fraud to not let them know, and don’t be surprised if they react in disgust, as that is their biological reaction that you must respect as a tolerant person.

May add more later…..

  1. I believe that Thomas Sowell articulates it well in his “A Conflict of Visions”.

    My understanding of it is that Conservatives accept that human nature is fixed, to a certain extent. That we will never achieve a perfect society because the people who make it up are imperfect. Therefore we examine systems, institutions, cultures and practices and (hopefully) adopt and conserve those which experience shows to produce better results.

    Progressives or Leftists DO believe that Utopia can be achieved through the perfection of human nature and human institutions. In order to convince people that the change and expense (often measured in body-counts) are justified, they must be convinced that nothing in the past is good. That there is nothing that is worth preserving. Nothing current that is superior to the vision that they offer of the future.

    That is why Progressives are so willing and anxious to denigrate and tear down the traditions that we know work – even if imperfectly – because only then will people tuen to and accept the Utopian fantasy of the Progressives…… that the world will be made perfect if only the power to make decisions is given to the “right” people who will make the “right” decision.

    I also think that Jordan Peterson puts it well when he notes that all those on the Left who excuse the consistent dismal failure of such Utopians by claiming that “it wasn’t done right”, are making the impossibly arrogant claim that *they* would be wiser and more benevolent rulers than all those preceding them.

    1. Yup, good points, all. Sowell may not be perfect, but he does make some very astute observations, and has a knack for turning them into clear language.
