In the Department of Veterans Affairs: Staff are taught the concepts of “gender identity” and “gender expression” with a diagram of a “Genderbread Person.” They are instructed to examine “personal ‘biases’” and told that having “military experience,” a “light-complexion,” no criminal record, being “straight,” “Christian,” “cis-gendered,” and more are elements of “privilege.”

In NASA: Executives learn how to become “allies” who “use their privilege” to help “marginalized people.” The agency laments that an “over-reliance on data” disproving left-wing narratives in society threatens to “invalidate diverse people’s experiences.” It also describes “Color Blindness” as a “microaggression” and advises to “get intimate with your own bias and racial identity.”
