We’d thought we’d settled on the fact that you’re born gay, you’re not made that way. So we’re not entirely sure what to make of this fourth-grade teacher who takes credit for a lot of fifth-graders who had her for a teacher being queer. “A lot of them are queer because I am queer,” she says. Apparently, she’s their “safe space,” and they like to visit her classroom after school to play “Queer Guess Who.” We see a lot of teachers featured by Libs of TikTok who seem to have the attitude that the kids’ parents are a danger to them, and when they’re in school, they’re your parents now. President Biden, remembering when he used to “teach classes” at the University of Pennsylvania, recently told a group of teachers that children are “like yours when they’re in the classroom.”
Just an aside: Is everyone on TikTok on something? What’s with all the goofy faces and dilated pupils and helium voices?

This can't be real

So is she saying queerness is a choice? Because ummmmm how are they queer because you’re queer? 🤔

The LGBT lobby hates this so much because it weighs heavily against the narrative of "born this way," which was required to unhinge sexuality from being a choice back when more people identified as religious and the lobby was trying to overcome religious objections.

Look how excited she is discussing sex with fourth graders. All I see here are 🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩

“A lot of students are queer because I’m queer.” Soooo the only reason they know you’re queer is because you tell them, and praise queerness, which convinces the kids to say they’re queer… which means you’re teaching them to be queer. There’s a word for that… oh yes, grooming.

I think, after abolishing the Department of Education, maybe we need mandatory annual psychological evaluations for teachers. I didn’t realize that there was a catastrophic mental health problem in educators nationwide. I see why kids aren’t learning though.

Can anyone explain to me what they mean by queer?

It means "I really need to be part of a group because society has collapsed and this is the least strict one I can opt into."

Education focuses on the student. Indoctrination focuses on the teacher…

Did anyone notice that she's celebrating the kids saying things that we've all been told are "homophobic"?

I remember when I was in 4th grade. Had to drop off a note in the office & walked into the teacher’s lounge. Some teachers were taking a smoke break. That was revelatory enough. Don’t care who you’re sleeping with, help my kid understand math so we can all move on with our lives.

Just seeing teachers talking to each other after school had let out was weird. What were they talking about? Now it looks like they just stay behind and hang out with the children and play Queer Guess Who.
Middle school teacher says ‘I’m your parents now’ and f***k them if they don’t love and accept you for who you are https://t.co/xvMC5o6mTL
