    Imagine a scenario in which your child comes home from school and tells you that they now identify as “pansexual.” Or, while telling you about the school day, your child mentions that he or she was told he or she was gay based on a test a teacher gave them. Or you discover he or she was recruited by a teacher to lead a gay and transgender student club but was instructed not to tell any parents because “what happens in the student club, stays in the club.” These are the alarming contents of a packet distributed by the California...

    The U.S. Army is facing difficulties finding enough recruits and hopes increased bonuses will lure them. The Army for the first time is offering a maximum enlistment bonus of $50,000 to highly-skilled recruits who join for six years. Maj. Gen. Kevin Vereen, head of Army’s Recruiting Command,said difficulties stem from schools shuttering during the pandemic and a competitive job market. “We are still living the implications of 2020 and the onset of COVID, when the school systems shut down. We want to promote the value of serving your country. But we also know it’s all about compensation, too.” The recruiting...

    (Excerpt) Just as we got settled, our elementary-schooler pointed in the direction of oncoming floats, raising an eyebrow at a bare-chested man in dark sunglasses whose black suspenders clipped into a leather thong. The man paused to be spanked playfully by a partner with a flog. “What are they doing?” my curious kid asked as our toddler cheered them on.The pair was the first of a few dozen kinksters who danced down the street, laughing together as they twirled their whips and batons, some leading companions by leashes.At the time, my children were too young to understand the nuance of...

    There’s growing evidence that Nickelodeon’s hard push to promote the LGBTQ agenda to children is having a negative impact on the network’s ratings. In the last two weeks, both Nickelodeon and its preschool-targeted network, Nick Jr., have released videos championing “trans,” “queer,” and “pansexual” inclusion. One video that sparked mass outrage depicted a cartoon version of drag queen Nina West singing about various LGBTQIA groups “[loving] each other so proudly” on “Blues Clues and You,” a show for two- to five-year olds. That same video showed a female-to-male transgender beaver who appeared to have post-operative surgical scars on its chest....

    The "Rugrats" reboot — a 1990s Nickelodeon staple — features an openly gay main character, much to the chagrin of some viewers who say the move is "performative wokeness." The show's reboot made its Paramount+ debut Thursday. What are the details?According to Newsweek, cast members said that the show's new CGI version introduces a variety of diverse changes. One character, Betty DeVille — mother of twins Phil and Lil — is now openly gay, for example. In 2020, voice actor Melanie Chartoff, who voices another character, admitted of the reboot, "One of the characters is now a lesbian." Chartoff added,...

    Republican state Sen. Shannon Grove tried out a new hashtag on her Twitter account this week: #SaveOurChildren. It was a phrase she hadn’t used before Tuesday, and just a few weeks ago, it would have seemed harmless enough. But these days on social media, #SaveOurChildren has been almost entirely taken over by a movement connected to the baseless and sprawling conspiracy theory known as QAnon. Conspiracy theorists have latched onto the phrase "Save Our Children" and others like it in recent weeks to promote the belief that a government cabal is protecting Satanist pedophiles hidden among society’s elite, with President...

    The House of Representatives on Thursday voted against the passage of an amendment spearheaded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that would bar the United States military from recruiting via game streaming site Twitch. Ocasio-Cortez brought the amendment to a vote as part of the H.R. 7617 Department of Defense Appropriations Act. The House voted to block the amendment, with 292 votes against compared to 126 in support of it. The amendment came after a July 15 report in The Nation that detailed the military’s recruitment tactics on Twitch, which include unspecified gaming hardware giveaways. The Army, Navy, and Air Force each...

    By 2021, schools in the country will include courses on "inclusion" and "history" of the LGBTQ "movement" in their curricula.[This is a translation of a piece published by the German edition of iFamNews – Ed.]In many Western countries LGBTQ groups celebrate June as “Pride Month.” This gives rise to more aggressive rhetoric, propaganda and initiatives by LGBTQ lobby groups. England is not spared from these escapades. Although the “joy” of “sexual diversity” was buffered due to coronavirus-related restrictions, the LGBTQ lobby in Great Britain can still celebrate an ill-fated victory. Scotland will be the first nation in the world to...

    An outraged California mother announced on Facebook that she would be pulling her children from public school after receiving an email advertising an online “LGBTQ+ Safe Space Web Hangout” for “LGBTQ+youth ages 13-25.” According to the advertisement, which was e-mailed to middle-school children by government schools in California's Gilroy and Morgan Hill school district, this “Safe Space Web Hangout” is “private” and by “invite only.” They happen every Wednesday at 4 PM, the email said. The hangouts are hosted by “The LGBT Youth Space,” a self-styled “community drop-in center” funded by taxpayers for “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and...

    After a seventeen-year production hiatus, PBS has rebooted its enduring favorite, Clifford the Big Red Dog, but with one jarring change: The series now features a child with two lesbian “moms.” In the episode where the lesbian characters are introduced, “The Big Red Tomato/Dogbot,” the women are not identified as overtly lesbian, but in subsequent installments, the two are both called “Mom” by Samantha, the new friend of Emily Elizabeth, who remains the central character in the show along with her loveable gigantic red dog, Clifford. One Million Moms (1MM) director, Monica Cole, sent out a call to action to...

    SUBTITLE: Lawmakers in Missouri and Tennessee have introduced bills that could put librarians in prison for hosting Drag Queen Story Hour events at public libraries. On Monday afternoon, nearly 100 kindergarten students crowded into the Tompkins Square Library in New York City’s trendy East Village neighborhood as two glamorous drag queens read them children’s books during a Drag Queen Story Hour event. Jackie Cox and Jan — two contestants from the upcoming season of VH1’s hit show “RuPaul’s Drag Race” — fielded questions such as “Are you a boy or a girl?” and “Why does your voice sound like that?”...

    It started as just one rogue Wisconsin school, showing its LGBT pride. Now, five years later, it’s a national movement in public schools—and most parents have no idea it’s happening. Do you want your child to be psychologically manipulated at school Thursday? Most moms and dads would say no. But on Thursday, the Human Rights Campaign and its pals at the powerful National Education Association are teaming up to promote “Jazz and Friends National Day of School & Community Readings.” “We want the listeners to know,” Family Research Council’s Meg Kilgannon told me on “Washington Watch,” “This could be happening...

    Opponents criticized an Iowa bill that would require schools to notify parents before teaching LGBTQ content to children. Lawmakers introduced the Republican-sponsored House File 2201 in January, a bill that would require schools to annually notify parents about any kind of material that discusses gender or sexual orientation. This would then give parents the opportunity to inspect such material and pull their children out of certain classes. The bill is one of 13 pieces of legislation introduced in the Iowa state Legislature that opponents are calling anti-LGBTQ, CNN reported Friday. Republican Iowa state Rep. Jeff Shipley says that the bill...
