Are We Heading Towards the End of Innocence?

“When parents, voters, and political leaders understand the true nature of Drag Queen Story Hour and the ideology that drives it, they will work quickly to restore the limits that have been temporarily—and recklessly—abandoned.”

From The Real Story Behind Drag Queen Story Hour

I don't have kids.

I’ve never had to concern myself with what children are learning in school or in the media, and when I started hearing rumblings about sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI), I didn’t pay much attention.

The pronoun thing didn’t bother me in the beginning either.

If someone wants to announce that they are a he/him, well, affirm away.

I will say that the choice to use they/them did offend my sensibilities, but only as a writer — I took issue with the grammar, not the gender.

But allowing people to be who they are?

Vive la difference.

We’re Canadian.

Respecting each other’s choices is what we do (or used to do).

What consenting adults do is their own business.

But it is this very tolerance that has been manipulated and is being used against us.

In his eye-opening film, Plandemic 3, Mikki Willis calls it “weaponized compassion.”

We all know at least some of the horrific ways in which people have historically been “othered” and oppressed.

People come to Canada to escape this oppression and we take pride in our acceptance of them.

Of course, it wasn’t always like that.

And I’m old enough to remember a time when gays and lesbians were ridiculed and persecuted.

Pride culture came out of a need to assert the rights and freedoms of everyone, regardless of sexual orientation.

Growing up in downtown Toronto near the gay village, I attended a few pride events and enjoyed the midnight drag queen show at a local latin dance club on Saturday nights.

These seem like such innocent events compared to what’s happening today.

“The drag queen might appear as a comic figure, but he carries an utterly serious message: the deconstruction of sex, the reconstruction of child sexuality, and the subversion of middle-class family life.”

From The Real Story Behind Drag Queen Story Hour

In those early days of gay rights, I could never have imagined that Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) would become a thing.

That men dressed like hyper-sexualized women would be reading queer stories to kindergarten children.

That books promoting butt plugs and fisting would be readily available for young people.

I’m no prude, and I wouldn’t want to foist my values on anyone any more than I’d want someone else’s foisted on me.

But when we promote sexualized storytelling and gender ideology to unsuspecting children and their parents, even the most liberal-minded among us need to stop and re-evaluate.

What is actually taking place in our society?

Are we so caught up in our political leanings, our ideological “side,” that we’ve lost our ability to question and discern?

And worse, are we incapable of stepping outside of our opinions and standing up for what’s right and true regardless of our tribal affiliations?

I decided to explore for myself.

I recently came across this highly credible short video from Nadine Ness, a child sexual abuse survivor and mother of 4 with an earnest and dedicated commitment to protecting children.

As a former RCMP officer who was trained to profile child sex offenders, Ms Ness has a keen understanding of the tactics and history of pedophilia, as well as past attempts to normalize it.

Wait, what?

What does the 2SLGBTQIA+ rights movement have to do with pedophilia?

Turns out, more than you might think.

In this video, she discusses the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) and their connection to the current multi-lettered sexual agenda.

She even points to a government-funded organization with logos arguably identifiable as pedophile symbols.

Contrary to what those supporting DQSH would have you think, Ms Ness is not transphobic, nor is she promoting hate speech.

In fact, she points out that this radicalization of what used to be an issue of inclusivity is causing a decrease in support for the very community its perpetuators purport to represent.

Rather than some “extreme right wing” suppression of healthy sexuality, she is calling out shocking content that young people are being exposed to in our schools.

(Seriously, I’d never even heard of the sexual practice she reads about from materials provided to grade 9 students.)

If you think that the rise against the SOGI doctrine really is some reactionary fascist homophobia you absolutely need to listen to and watch this short video.

It turns out that it’s not just heterosexuals that take issue with the direction of sex education and indoctrination.

Gays Against Groomers is a non-profit with this statement on its homepage:

“We are an organization of gays and others in the community who oppose the equalization, indoctrination and medicalization of children.”

If you want to get into the more academic side of things, here’s an excellent introduction that shines a light on the not-so-innocent history of drag queens and queer theory.

It should be required reading for anyone supporting the multi-lettered movement under the guise of inclusion and tolerance.

I can’t believe that parents exposing their children to this agenda actually know what’s going on.

I don’t believe that they’re okay with the move to blur the lines of childhood and to normalize sex with children.

“…as the queer pedagogist Hannah Dyer has written, queer pedagogy and, by extension, drag pedagogy seek to expose the very concept of “childhood innocence” as an oppressive heteropatriarchal illusion.”

From The Real Story Behind Drag Queen Story Hour

But don’t take my word for it.

Follow this well-researched article down the trans rabbit hole and decide for yourself.👇

We have become a society of sides.

Many on the so-called “left” are being manipulated and mobilized inside of a false narrative that parents speaking out against this sexualization are promoting transphobia and hate.

Since when did wanting to protect children’s innocence become a sign of phobia?

Since when did asserting the right to raise one’s child with one’s own values become an expression of hate?

And since when did encouraging kids to keep secrets from parents become an acceptable part of the education system?

On Wednesday, September 20th, parents and grandparents will be protesting the SOGI agenda and the move to push parents out of the way of direct indoctrination of children across the country.

The “One Million March for Children” will be taking place in multiple locations that you can find on the organizers' websites HERE and HERE.

As what promises to be the largest protest by parents in Canadian history gathers momentum, those in support of SOGI policies are gearing up for counter protests.

In the past couple of days, a secretly recorded video from labour organizers was leaked.

One has to ask, why are unions organizing protests against people protesting for their rights?

Why are labour organizations protesting around a children’s education issue?

And don’t the heterosexual majority of these unions' members have the same rights as their 2SLGBTQIA+ members to peacefully protest?

In this disturbing discussion, the unions avow their support for trans members and repeat the unsubstantiated slander of parental rights protestors as fascists and transphobic promoters of hate.

The organizers profess to be all about love and positivity, and yet encourage tactics to intimidate, demoralize, and even cause fear.

If they believe, according to their own words, that they are the side of communication, why, in their own posters, do they tell their supporters not to talk to cops or engage in a dialogue with those they oppose?

There are many more questions to ask, and perhaps this is the best part about what’s happening.

People are beginning to question and not just go along with anything and everything they’re being told to believe and to do.

If parents don’t have the right to choose what their children are exposed to, who does? And where could that lead?

We can’t just assume that everything the "progressive" movement does is in the best interest of society — any more than we can assume that what the establishment does is in our best interest.

We no longer live in a world where we can assume that someone else is taking care of us.

And we certainly can’t assume that the kids are alright.

The left and the right are the same. Both sides have little or no intention of forgiving or regret poor decisions; or learn of their history. Theology left from common speak around the 1400s-1500s and it was the desire for wealth, trade, and lordship that wasted our nations.

These extreme events will continue until enough people become righteous in nature. It’s truly the idea of ‘wealth’ that puts the darkness in our hearts. It’s said that William of Duvenwoorde (1290-1353) enjoyed an annual income of some 70 000 livers.

The only thing I believe the left and right can agree upon is wealth. Even the Indians walked home naked after trading with the Europeans. Because they desired what they didn’t…

Very interesting argument. Thank you. I agree that the left/right spectrum is irrelevant. When the left attacks the working class and their right to protest and the right attacks Big Pharma and the corporatocracy, everything is upside down and old allegiances make no sense. We will need to come together. The March was an excellent example of this.

Do we really know ourselves and them like we'd like to think we do? If you know your limitations and your allies' limitations and never go outside their expertise, you are already guaranteed to win at least half of your battles. If you know the limitations of the enemy and of their handlers and backers, you may very well never have to worry about the other half.

The disturbing part about the counterprotest strategy is that they, too, are very earnest. They too think they are on the right side. They too think they are standing up for positive things. Listening to their call was really disheartening for me. These people believe they are on the side of good, but have been given very bad intel about the parents and families who are participating. Just like with the Convoy, they bought the narrative about extremist haters. I have seen none of that -- neither with the Convoy participants nor with the Million March organizers.
