I realize that it’s not uncommon for some kids to gain an understanding of their own sexual leanings or gender identity as early as six or seven. I was definitely into photos of naked women when I was eight or thereabouts. Then again some kids don’t tap into this stuff until they hit puberty. 13, 14…that’s when it all comes alive. But I think it’s heinous and horrible to prod a toddler into thinking about his/her gender identity when they’re two or three years old.
Should little boys be urged to play with swords and Star Wars stun guns and wear tyke-sized football helmets? Or urged to consider wearing tights and maybe playing with dolls and watching movies about Rudolf Nureyev? My experience is that boys tend to reach for swords and stun guns on their own. (Mine certainly did.) Kids, I feel, should be graciously allowed to find their way into their own sexual feelings and gender identities at their own pace, and in their own way. Some get there sooner; others later.
But parents who try to gently muscle their tykes into considering non-binary identities and consider their possibly fluid sexuality are deranged. They’re doing so out of fear, out of not wanting to seem transphobic. But the parents and “woke” educators who are urging this are, no offense, soft-spoken monsters.
It’s stuff like this that may result in trouble for Democrats in next year’s midterms. Some voters focus more on cultural than political issues, and this is exactly the kind of thing that some people despise about progressive lefties.
