PODCAST: Carol Dansereau is fighting gender identity ideology in schools

While kids once would learn about their changing bodies, puberty, sex, and reproduction as part of “sex ed,” what is now being taught in schools has changed suddenly and rapidly, without consultation with parents or consideration for the impact on kids. Today, students are no longer learning about sex, but about “gender” and “gender identity.” They are being taught that it is possible to be “born in the wrong body” and that “male” and “female” are social constructs, and that how one feels or dresses is in fact what determines whether one is a boy or a girl.

Many are concerned about the impact this will have on kids and their understanding of bodies, sex, reproduction, and sexual orientation, as well as on their developing minds. One of those people is Carol Dansereau — a parent and grandparent who worked for nonprofit environmental organizations for over 25 years as an attorney, organizer, and nonprofit director. She started digging into these new curriculums in Seattle, and was disturbed by what she found, leading her to produce a series of videos outlining what is being taught to kids in schools across the US, under the guise of “inclusion.” In this episode, I spoke with her about what she discovered, why we should be concerned, and what we can do about it.
