Warning: This article covers sexually explicit and disturbing material.
The scoop: Chicago’s largest children’s hospital has partnered with four local school districts to promote radical gender theory and sexually explicit topics for children, according to leaked insider documents. The material has been circulated to staff in middle schools and high schools for employee training, according to a whistleblower.
Gender theory: A 50-page document titled “Beyond Binary: Gender in Schools” blames oppressive “western society” for “transphobia” and “cissexism” and calls for traditional ideas of gender to be torn down.
Policies for an “affirming” school environment: The training tells schools to “avoid gender segregation” in bathrooms and locker rooms. If a student “comes out” to a teacher, they are advised to conceal it from parents if the student so desires.
Endorsing shocking websites: The hospital has promoted, among other resources, a “kid friendly website for gender-affirming gear” and an “LGBTQ friendly sex shop for teens,” recommending them for children as young as 11. The sites sell chest binders and artificial penises, as well as “dildos,” “vibrators,” “harnesses,” “anal toys,” “lube, condoms, & oils,” and more. A “kink & BDSM” section advertises “collars and leashes,” “nipple suckers,” and gives graphic descriptions of sadomasochistic sex.
