Especially in the United States there's a brand of ultra-conservative highly homophobic Christians who, among other things, have loudly sensationalized how homosexuals are trying to convert children into homosexuality.
This conspiracy theory is quite ridiculous, and I have laughed at it as much as anybody else.
I'm not laughing as hard anymore.
Not exactly homosexuals per se, but feminists are finally making that conspiracy theory actually somewhat true. For instance:
80 primary school pupils a year seeking help to change gender
UK Police Target Schoolchildren As Young as FOUR With Tax Payer Funded, Transgender Propaganda
Boy aged 5 returns to school as a girl
It really is happening.
This is not just a question of raising awareness of transgenderism. It's actually encouraging kids as young as four years old into it.
This crosses the line.
No matter what your stance is on gender identity and transgenderism, it can be medically and scientifically argued that a person cannot know their "true" gender until at the very least completing their puberty. Hormones make all the difference in the world. It can change everything. It can even change things back and forth several times.
No matter how pro-gender-fluidity and pro-transgenderism you may be, you cannot deny this medical and physical fact. 4-year-olds cannot know their "true" gender. Not only have they not developed enough mentally to make informed rational decisions of their own, they haven't even reached puberty, which makes all the difference in the world.
Propaganda like this can make kids make decision that they may later deeply regret. In some cases the decision may be irreversible. Messing up kids' heads in this way is not only highly irresponsible, I would consider it outright criminal.
Consider, for instance, this sentence from that third article: "Children can take drugs to postpone puberty as well as hormone treatment, before NHS gender realignment surgery at 18." This is criminal and should be illegal. It is in no way any less horrible than, for example, performing routine lobotomies on children, which was surprisingly common in a few western countries not so long ago.
I have been saying this for a long time, and I will reiterate it here: Feminism is a dangerous and highly toxic ideology. It should be treated like a dangerous cult.
