I’ve been thinking about the longstanding practice of Christian protest outside abortion clinics, with established legal protections. Now that Woke gender ideology pervades the public schools, I wonder if it might be time for brave activists to start employing the “abortion clinic” playbook outside schools, welcoming any publicity and controversy this creates.
I envision a free pamphlet on “Gender and the Body” handed out to 12+ year-old kids at 3 pm, laying out in simple terms the Christian/traditional view of the body (God-given, male and female, geared toward loving and fruitful marriages and children) versus the Woke view of the body (26 genders, pansexuality) that they’re already learning every day. This subject is usually taught under the radar, in classroom discussions, so parents have no clue what their child is being told or how pervasive postmodern gender ideology is at school.
The pamphlet could explain that all major religions view the body and sexuality as sacred: “Ask your parents what your family’s religious tradition teaches about men and women, sex, and marriage.” It would accurately characterize Woke gender ideology as a brand-new pseudo-religion that has nothing hopeful to offer and nothing to do with their own family/cultural history, whether Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, etc.
Liberal parents and teachers would go ballistic about Christians standing outside public schools trying to “indoctrinate” their children about sex and gender. But this is exactly what the school is already doing within its walls, aggressively, and many parents would understand that and appreciate some pushback. It would, as they say, launch a national conversation.
