What is Sex & Gender Theory?

Sex & Gender Theory is a product of  Critical Theory, an ideology which seeks to divide people into various oppressed and oppressor groups. As played out in the public schools, Sex & Gender Theory divides children into groups based on their sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI). The Genderbread Person  graphic promoted by ‘It’s About  Metrosexual,’ is one such tool used in public schools. Another popular teaching graphic is the Gender Unicorn.  The goal is to change how our children perceive biological sex. They are being taught that biological sex at birth is separate from gender identity. The motto of ‘It’s About Metrosexual‘ is: “Breaking through the binary: Gender explained using continuums.”

This Marxist influenced worldview tells students that if they do not check one or more of the LGBTQIA+ boxes, they are “CIS” gender, a perjorative term that  gender theory activists have coined to mean “privileged” heterosexual person whose sexual identity matches their “sex assigned at birth.” Identities other than “CIS” are taught as oppressed or victimized. Schools then teach that kids who hold to these identities need school-wide support by encouraging empathy and promoting and participating in pride celebrations. They teach children how to become “allies” of their oppressed peers, and cloak these actions as ways of being good and kind.

Currently, self-identifying as “non-binary” has become a social contagion where it’s “fashionable” to be a member of an oppressed identity group.  The public schools are advancing the culture wave and Critical Theory by encouraging non-conventional sex and gender identification. According to Newsweek, “Among Millennials, 30 percent identify as LGBTQ, more than three times that of the rest of the adult population, and when the researchers broke out the youngest of the group, ages 18-24 (which some call Gen Z), they found 39 percent called themselves LGBTQ.”

Here are just some of the ways that schools are participating in this unprecedented wave:

To learn more, we recommend Abigail Shrier’s book, Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters. Shrier is independent Journalist and former writer for the Wall Street Journal. Her book investigates why and how so many young girls and women are making the irreversible and regrettable decision to undergo medical treatments to affirm gender dysphoria. She provides statistics to show that this is a social contagion and not an organic culture shift. Her book also reports on many de-transitioners, who, over time, have come to deeply regret the medical procedures that left them sterile, mutilated, sexually dysfunctional, depressed and unable to recognize either gender in themselves. (Watch detransitioner, Chloe Cole, recount her story here.) In some cases, these stories of gender ‘transitioning,’ lead to suicide, which ironically is the common argument behind the medical establishment’s push to affirm gender confusion via medical interventions. Recent studies are beginning to show a significant correlation between gender ‘transitioning’ and suicide. Initially after medical interventions, there seems to be a euphoric “honeymoon” period when peers and mentors praise those transitioners as brave for affirming their “gender identity.” In time, however, many become disillusioned when they realize that hormones and surgical mutilation can never truly change their sex and they struggle to recover any semblance of their authentic self.

The Heritage Foundation released a corroborating report stating that: “Lowering legal barriers to make it easier for minors to undergo cross-sex medical interventions without parental consent does not reduce suicide rates—in fact, it likely leads to higher rates of suicide among young people in states that adopt these changes.”

In the Daily Wire article, How Do Gender Transitions Impact Children? Here’s What The Science Says, Miriam Grossman, MD and board-certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist writes, “There is a risk of suicide in gender-questioning teens, but there is no evidence that transition lowers that risk. One study showed that following genital surgery, transgender patients were 4.9 times more likely to attempt suicide and 19.1 times more likely to have died from suicide, after adjusting for the presence of psychiatric comorbidities.”

Despite overblown claims of the radical activists, and medical and media establishments, pharmaceutical and surgical interventions affirming gender dysphoria, DO NOT improve outcomes, but only further compound the problems of a troubled population of youth.

Over the past several years, institutions such as K-12 education, academia, major corporations, government and military have all enthusiastically gotten on-board with this dangerous ideology. It begs the question, “Why?” Some are ignorant of the dangerous consequences of such acquiescence. For others there is a serious profit motive. The Federalist reported in a 2018 article, Who Are the Rich, White Men Institutionalizing Transgender Ideology?, that the transgender lobby has mostly been funded by billionaires with greedy conflicts of interest. Once a person undergoes cross hormone treatment and surgical procedures to amputate healthy body parts, they become life-long medical patients, with complicated wounds in need of constant medical treatment and care. The financial lifetime value of these patients represents major ongoing revenue to the gender clinics, which seem to be popping up everywhere.

Others argue that the powerful, wealthy globalist elites benefit from the LGBTQIA+ trend because it’s easier to erase borders when the American youth is largely sterile and our birth rate is upside down. Creating victims in the coming generations means many will rely on government intervention, which justifies massive government spending. It’s clear that “big tech” and “big media” are on board through their prolific positive coverage and harsh censorship of dissent.

Whatever the motive, it’s clear that this is very dangerous for our youth and for our nation. Sex is binary. We are created male or female. This is a scientific and objective fact that cannot be changed with “gender affirming care” protocols that can lead to a lifetime of heartache and regret. When an elite group of wealthy oligarchs decide to push the redefinition of a basic fact accepted by all of civilization for thousands of years, one must ask oneself,  “What are their motives?”
