Earlier this month, I noted in this space that LGBT activists have so effectively taken over the curriculum of Canadian public schools that students were now being encouraged to choose different gender identities — including fresh new categories such as “non-binary,” which almost nobody had heard of until very recently
Our school system is not simply providing information about new “gender identities” — it is actively encouraging and facilitating children to push boundaries and question their sex.
Indeed, the effectiveness of this indoctrination is creating a massive spike in children identifying as anything but themselves everywhere it has been implemented—even liberal comedian Bill Maher, long-time supporter of the LGBT agenda, noted the trend: “If this spike in trans children is all biological, why is it regional? Either Ohio is shaming them or California is creating them.”
The last few years have seen the trend escalate. A report by The Post Millennial, for example, highlights new data from Seattle Public Schools shows an 853% spike in students identifying as non-binary over only three years. In 2019, 53 out of 55,417 students identified as “non-binary.” In the 2022-2023 school year, that number was up to 505, including three children in preschool, 16 in kindergarten, 89 in grades 1-5, 125 in middle school and 272 in high school.
