During his confirmation hearings in 1991, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was accused of saying, "there’s a pubic hair in my coke,” to a 26-year-old female staffer, and that was used to show he created a hostile work environment and should disqualify him from sitting on the Supreme Court. Ironically, the Senator who led that charge to disqualify Justice Thomas on the grounds of inappropriate sexual language in the workplace is now the President of the United States where our public schools are talking to minors about gender transition, surgically removing breasts, cutting off penises, oral sex, anal sex, fetishes and sadomasochism. School personnel are helping students to transition their genders without the knowledge or consent of their parents. So, to Joe Biden, saying “pubic hair” to a grown woman is a hostile act, but completely sexualizing young children should be encouraged. We have completely lost our minds. No adult should ever talk to a child about sex. It does not matter what the environment or the context is.
How many inappropriate or even criminal sexual relationships between teachers and students need to occur for us to realize that teachers should not talk to their students about sex, ever? The sex discussion should be handled at home. The parents should teach their children about sex. I’m sure there are plenty of teachers in America today who would take their assignment of teaching sexual education to their students seriously and respectfully, but they are far too many teachers who will use that opportunity to sexualize and exploit the students or try to indoctrinate them into their perverse sexual belief system.
According to SESAME – Stop Educator Sexual Abuse Misconduct & Exploitation – an organization created to help prevent the abuse of students by educators, in 2015, just under 500 educators were arrested for sexual misconduct with children. In a survey of 8th through 11th graders, 3.5 million students (7% of those surveyed) reported having had physical sexual contact from a teacher or a coach, ranging from unwanted touching of their body, all the way up to sexual intercourse. The statistics increase to about 4.5 million children (10%) when considering other types of sexual misconduct, such as being shown pornography or being subjected to sexually explicit language or exhibitionism.
It is apparent that the school systems and the teacher’s unions do not want to do anything against the teachers who violate the trust of children. They continually side with and defend the teachers over the students. There is a male teacher in Canada, who is teaching his class not only dressed as a woman but dressed as a woman with ridiculously oversized prosthetic breasts. It is a painfully obvious attempt by this teacher to sexualize his students and draw them into his alternative sexual lifestyle, and not only is the school not doing anything to stop the teacher from dressing this way, it is defending the teacher’s right to behave that way in front of his students. What about the students’ rights? Don’t they have the right to go into a classroom that is not a hostile sexual environment? In 2021, the Loudon County, Virginia school system covered up the rape of a 15-year-old girl by a “gender-fluid” student in the girl’s restroom, because they were protecting their LGBTQ agenda.
Democrats do not care about children, no matter what they say. The same people who cried about supposedly putting kids in cages, are advocates for sexualizing children, cutting off their genitals, and ripping healthy babies out of the womb. Children are pawns to Democrats to push their far-left agenda. After a year, we still have a severe baby formula shortage. 3-month-old babies are not getting the nourishment they need to grow and develop, and our Secretary of Transportation is focusing on “racist roads.” If children were really important to Democrats, fixing the baby formula shortage should have been the priority from day one to the Biden administration, and almost a year later, it still has not been resolved.
There are over 4,000 public schools in the United States that are teaching radical gender theory, pushing gender transition on their students. Very few kids are comfortable with the dramatic changes that occur to their bodies in puberty – going from a child’s body to ultimately an adult’s body. It is a very confusing, awkward, and often times scary part of a young person’s life. So, when we have teachers talking to kids about taking puberty blockers that would stop the onset of puberty which is a confusing and scary time to them, kids may be interested in taking them because they don’t want to go through these dramatic changes. But they don’t realize that preventing those changes from occurring will be very damaging to them in the long run. And not only don’t we have teachers and adults advising them not to transition, they are encouraging them to. When public figures go through a gender transition of their bodies, our society calls them brave and courageous, and we give them awards. Do you think that has an influence on our children’s thinking?
Imagine a 12-year-old boy trying to figure out what’s going on with his body as he enters puberty, the changes that are occurring that he’s trying to process and understand, and his teacher, one of the adults he’s told to listen to and respect, is talking about boys having their penises cut off. Do you think that would be pretty traumatic for him? Imagine a 13-year-old girl who is unsure and even uncomfortable with the changes that are occurring in her body, trying to understand how and why her body is developing, and her teacher is talking about girls having their breasts removed. Do you think that would be traumatic to that child? Do you think that would constitute a hostile environment for students? Do you think that maybe some of these kids may suddenly start thinking that getting these types of surgeries could be the answer to the confusion of puberty that they’re struggling through?
We spent decades believing that any mention of sex in the workplace, even the most benign reference to grown adults, constituted a hostile work environment and the person who engaged in that behavior should be severely punished. There are CEOs of companies who have been fired for making sexual references a fraction as explicit as fourth grade teachers say to ten-year-olds on a weekly basis in our public school system. At some point, we need to start putting children first, and understand they are children, understand what point of life they are in, and stop pretending that if we, adults, can understand and process certain concepts, that means children can. If we continue to treat children not as children, many of these children will be destined to live a very confusing, sad and painful adult life.
