Escape from Obama’s Transgender School Bathrooms
Barack Obama’s transgender regime has officially carried its demands for your child’s compliance with sexual deviancy to the level of an imperial directive:
Public schools must permit transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their gender identity, according to an Obama administration directive issued amid a court fight between the federal government and North Carolina.
The guidance from leaders at the departments of Education and Justice says public schools are obligated to treat their transgender students in a way that matches their gender identity, even if their education records or identity documents indicate a different sex.
The Department of Justice, which apparently now means primarily “social justice,” aka cultural Marxism, is joining the Department of Education—a thoroughly anti-constitutional entity the continued existence of which represents the greatest failure of the Reagan presidency—to complete American compulsory schooling’s true, original, and essential mission: the reduction of the population to a confused, helpless mass of spiritually unindividuated “worker units” for the benefit of a permanent corporate-political ruling elite.
The sudden (but long-anticipated and well-prepared) drive for transgender bathrooms in public facilities is part of progressivism’s final assault on modesty and personal privacy. Train children from an early age that sexual behavior is a harmless physical gratification, no more important than scratching an itch; teach them that there are no consequences of sexual activity that cannot be prevented or “taken care of” with a visit to the doctor; teach them that marriage and family are mere lifestyle choices no different from any other, and in no essential way related to the erotic impulse; and teach them that nothing but the old school morality of racists, sexists, and homophobes stands between their bodily urges and a dream world of polymorphous pleasures—teach children all of that, and you have destroyed the soul of man, sapped a generation of its vital energy, and dried up the primary sources of civility, personal responsibility, and moderation.
Advanced progressives for a century have known two things with perfect certainty: (1) that delayed gratification, sexual modesty, and in general self-restraint, are the chief moral obstacles to the compliant, state-dependent collective required of democratic socialism (i.e., populist totalitarianism); and (2) that government-controlled schools are their ace in the hole, the progressive poison in the civic well which ensures that, in spite of all private resistance, the population will eventually, gradually, succumb to materialism and amorality.
Here’s a prediction that I am very confident in making: thousands of parents who are shocked and disgusted at the thought of their young daughters being forced to share a shower room with boys are going to be in for an even bigger shock when their daughters mock their concern with, “What’s the big deal, Dad? I mean it’s just bodies, after all!”
This transgender assault is being pursued now because generations have been prepared for it. They have been prepared in public schools, which teach—both in explicit lessons and, more importantly, through their social structure—that sexuality is “no big deal,” that modesty is for prudish grandmothers, that sexual differentiation is sexist. Eros—nature’s delicate thread linking our bodily urges to our essential purposes, our souls to the stars, our petty existence to being and eternity—is being deliberately snipped, in order to leave us stranded on this earth, with no hopes or aspirations beyond immediate physical comfort and pleasure. In other words, nihilism.
Men left stranded on earth, without a sense of the divine, including the divine spark within themselves, are primed for a material savior, a new divinity to replace the one toward which Eros and nature had previously pointed us. They are ready, willing, and eager to submit to the State.
Nothing less than that—creating the moral (or rather amoral) platform for progressive authoritarianism—is the true significance of Obama’s imposition of transgender bathrooms in public schools. Though inherently absurd, this absurdity is an indication of how far the progressives know they have traveled toward their ultimate goal.
The good news, for those still able to hear it, is that the solution to this final degradation is both available and actually quite obvious.
Get your children, your children’s children, and your friends’ children, out of public school now, and keep them out.
If thinking of your nation’s girls and boys being submitted to this degradation—and even worse, thinking of them learning to accept this degradation—is not enough to shake you out of your well-trained adherence to the fool’s dream of “improving the public schools,” then perhaps you are unreachable.
If, on the other hand, these thoughts are able to move you, then it is beyond time to get serious about unraveling America’s, and the entire world’s, most insidious entitlement program, public education. (If you are in this latter group, I explain all of this—what modern public education is, how it came to be, what it causes, and what to do about it—in my book, The Case Against Public Education, available right here.)
On a personal level, the immediate solution, for most families, is fairly simple. It does, however, require long-term commitment, a lot of mental effort—and a genuine love for your children and grandchildren that supersedes petty concerns about practical inconvenience and reduced income potential. If you understand that hearing a thirteen year-old girl say, “What’s the big deal, it’s just bodies!” is the Rubicon progressive totalitarians have been aching to cross, and that they are literally months away from crossing it on a nationwide scale, then is there really anything left to debate about?
