If you’re wondering how fast Western Civilization is hurtling itself towards the edge of a cliff, simply look at the news coming out of Britain:
Dorothy Stringer School, in Brighton, has had 40 pupils between the ages of eleven and 16 who do not identify with their biological sex. A further 36 pupils identify as ‘gender-fluid’.
Over the past five years, the number of children referred to the NHS’s gender clinic has risen by 700 per cent.
I work with young people on a daily basis here in the United States as a public high school teacher. The temptations and tests are different these days for kids and teenagers, but the pressures are the same as they’ve always been: identity, acceptance, recognition, belonging. Childhood and adolescence has always been a confusing and exciting stage of life, but one that we have historically understood requires guidance from older, wiser voices.
The tragedy of Western Civilization is that such voices have evaporated into the ether and have been eclipsed by the loud, aggressive, indignant, and angry voice of the activist. There is great reason to be alarmed at such a development given that the activist cares about his cause, not ultimately the subject he uses as pawns to advance it. Never has that been better evidenced than it is with the LGBT revolutionaries that control pop culture.
One mother found her daughter visiting websites where strangers were telling her what to say to get doctors to prescribe her hormones.
YouTube activists urge young listeners to “just do it”, with very little mention of the damaging consequences.
Writing for The Sunday Times, Andrew Gilligan said: “In thousands of Instagram posts, Tumblr messages and YouTube ‘vlogs’, impressionable young people, largely girls, are told by upbeat, pretty folk slightly older than themselves how transitioning can be an escape route from uncertainty, autism, friendlessness, abuse, the pains of puberty, or homosexuality.”
Consequently, we have a generation being blindly led into life-altering body mutilations, as well as chemical poisoning that yields infertility and other complications, and it’s all being done in the name of tolerance. And like all effective activism, those voices in the medical community or the general population that express concern over what amounts to a deadly fad that is overwhelming our children’s innocence are shouted down by accusations of bigotry and prejudice.
In Brighton, LGBT charity Allsorts Youth Project asserts that parents who question their child’s wish to transition could be referred to social services.
The group has been highly active at Dorothy Stringer School, which now has 76 gender-confused students.
Think about that: 76 gender-confused students in one school. The LGBT sexual revolution breeds the confusion; they provoke it, encourage it, then thrive on it and use it to their advantage. And in a decade’s time, when mutilated, infertile, depressed and suicidal young adults look back with regret and ask us, “Why did you let me do this to myself?” it will be too late.
One of the Brighton school teachers interviewed for this piece admitted that “many” of the school’s teachers are worried about what is happening, but that “nobody wants to speak up” and face the character assassination from LGBT activists that would surely follow.
At some point men and women of virtue must accept the pop culture persecution and stand up for our children against those who are poisoning their minds and bodies for the sake of politics.
