Abigail Shrier: how activist teachers recruit kids

I saw this article posted on Abigail’s substack page. You might have heard of her. She wrote a book warning parents about how their daughters get pulled into transgenderism in the schools. I’ve noticed that she’s becoming more and more conservative about other issues as well. Anyway, the article below caught my eye, and I thought that you might be interested, too.

Here’s the article.

Last month, the California Teachers Association (CTA) held a conference advising teachers on best practices for subverting parents, conservative communities and school principals on issues of gender identity and sexual orientation. Speakers went so far as to tout their surveillance of students’ Google searches, internet activity, and hallway conversations in order to target sixth graders for personal invitations to LGBTQ clubs, while actively concealing these clubs’ membership rolls from participants’ parents.

Documents and audio files recently sent to me, and authenticated by three conference participants, permitted a rare insight into the CTA’s sold-out event in Palm Springs, held from October 29-31, 2021. The “2021 LGBTQ+ Issues Conference, Beyond the Binary: Identity & Imagining Possibilities,” provided best practices workshops that encouraged teachers to “have the courage to create a safe environment that fosters bravery to explore sexual orientation, gender identity and expression,” according to the precis of a talk given by fifth grade teacher, C. Scott Miller.

Several of the workshops advised teachers on the creation of middle school LGBTQ clubs (commonly known as “Gay-Straight Alliance” clubs or “GSA”).  One workshop—“Queering in the Middle”—focused “on what practices have worked for successful middle school GSAs and children at this age developmentally.”

They hid what they are doing from parents – especially conservative parents:

“Because we are not official—we have no club rosters, we keep no records,” Buena Vista Middle School teacher and LGBTQ-club leader, Lori Caldeira, states on an audio clip sent to me by a conference attendee. “In fact, sometimes we don’t really want to keep records because if parents get upset that their kids are coming? We’re like, ‘Yeah, I don’t know. Maybe they came?’ You know, we would never want a kid to get in trouble for attending if their parents are upset.”

The advice to those who run middle school LGBTQ clubs is: keep no records, so you can plead ignorance of the membership with the members’ parents. In fact, middle school teacher Kelly Baraki can be heard in the same session describing having named her club “the Equity Club,” and then, “You be You,” rather than the more ubiquitous “GSA.”

Caldeira and Baraki – both middle school teachers – led a workshop titled: “How we run a ‘GSA’ in Conservative Communities.” The audio recording of their lecture was sent to me by a conference attendee. In that address, the speakers describe the challenges for activist teachers working in the context of a politically mixed community in Central California with many conservative parents.

I found a picture of one of the teachers at Granite Grok:

That’s what these teachers look like.

Abigail’s article made me think of a recent study about how and why children get into this lifestyle.  This article at The Federalist had a few examples to illustrate the conclusion of the study. I’ll pick two.

The study includes other eye-opening information, such as case studies of several children’s stories.

  • “A 14-year-old natal female and three of her natal female friends were taking group lessons together with a very popular coach. The coach came out as transgender, and, within one year, all four students announced they were also transgender.”

  • “A 14-year-old natal female and three of her natal female friends are part of a larger friend group that spends much of their time talking about gender and sexuality. The three natal female friends all announced they were trans boys and chose similar masculine names. After spending time with these three friends, the 14-year-old natal female announced that she was also a trans boy.”

[…]“Great increase in popularity among the student body at large. Being trans is a gold star in the eyes of other teens,” wrote one parent on the study response form. Another wrote, “not so much ‘popularity’ increasing as ‘status’ … also she became untouchable in terms of bullying in school as teachers who ignored homophobic bullying …are now all at pains to be hot on the heels of any trans bullying.”

If you have young children in the schools – public or private – make sure you know what’s going on. If it were me, I would pull my kids out of schools. The teachers and administrators and school boards are just too far on the left to be trusted.

I’ve noticed that a lot of parents don’t want to get informed about these things. They just say “oh well, they will grow out of it and everything will be OK”. I don’t think that they are saying this because they know what is going on. They don’t know, because they are too lazy to have to put any work into raising their children. They say everything will be OK so that they can get back to doing what is best for them. But you can’t avoid a threat by wishing it away.

  1. Don’t forget that the pedophilia and sexual assault rates by teachers is much higher than the more publicized rates by Catholic priests. So, these children are not only being indoctrinated, they are being physically groomed for a deviant lifestyle.

    Really, at this point, can a person be a Christian and send their children to these dens of iniquity? Can a person be a Christian and WORK in the government indoctrination centers? I’ve been asking these questions for over a decade now, and when I first began, the schools were not nearly as depraved as they are now.

    The responses I get are very telling: “My public school is not that bad.” “I’m sending my children in there to be salt and light.” Those answers might have worked 20 years ago, but I’m not sure they hold much water anymore. It’s out in the open now, including with the school boards.

    I’d love to hear from public school teachers who think they are Christians. “Is it not collaboration with Satan to teach in a public school that is indoctrinating students like this – even if you are not PERSONALLY doing so?”

    1. Thank you for this great comment. it’s so interesting to hear what the parents say when they get challenged. I’m not surprised, my parents didn’t care about my education or have a plan. I’ve heard all the rationalizations about why their selfishness was actually praiseworthy. Even today they tell themselves what great parents they were.

  2. Weak, weak fathers. Skakin my head that parents are either not aware or do not care about children issues. My sister says she did the best she knew how. Her young daughter is a fat, multi-color haired lesbo and her son with a wife and children is transitioning…… into a woman.

    1. I think that women today feel threatened by men who have strong religious or moral views. The men who are selected for sex are non judgmental. That’s my experience. They don’t see the value of a man who leads, protects, provides.

  3. As a dad, I’m certainly worried about my kids. Due to overcrowding in our public school, middle school is now fifth grade (fifth through eighth) and I definitely have first-hand evidence that high school (and some middle schools) are promoting GSA — Gay-Straight Alliance.

    (South Middle School in my town definitely has a GSA, the town’s high school has a pretty … ardent and active GSA. Some of the students were proud about having a GSA.)

    I know I’m going to talk with my ten-year old about some of these issues pretty soon.

    I’m seriously contemplating Christian school (it’s less than a mile away although it will be $25k for the three of them).

    And thanks for posting this — your post prompted a talk with my wife about going back to private school. We were doing a Montessori for a bit as our town didn’t offer pre-school and kindergarten, due to overcrowding, was going to be a crapshoot (whether our son got stuck on a bus for an hour each way).

    I articulated that we would be very much swimming against the tide (we don’t live in the Bible belt — we’re very much in one of the most socially-liberal and anti-Christian parts of the US) and, not to just circle the wagons, and it is important to be salt and light — it is just very difficult when one is being hammered with all kinds of anti-Christian messages.

    I know my 10-year old son is having some difficulty sorting through what to believe or not to believe. We’ve talked about some issues in general (and since he lacks the science and the discernment), I’ve had to talk him down on some issues a.k.a., very progressive talking points.

    1. It will be a LOT less expensive, financially and spiritually, if you or your wife just stay home and homeschool, even if that means downsizing your home and cars or moving somewhere safer (like a red state, even though many school districts are still hostile to proper schooling in red states too). I’m the dad and I was the one who stayed home, so I know for a fact that you can do this. I even ran a 6 figure engineering business from my home concurrently, and my children helped me there too.

      Homeschooling was extremely hard work, but it paid off not long after my son took his first job and they immediately promoted him to group lead of engineers that were ten years older than him, and everyone kept coming up to him to ask how to homeschool their children because they said that he was the best prepared person they’d ever seen for the job. All Glory to God, and absolutely none to me. (Special note: I began homeschooling as an atheist and became a Christian along the way.)

      Obviously he’s a very strong Christian, which is the most important thing. Of course you will get pushback for homeschooling, and that includes from family and friends. That’s what it means to be a Christian. It helped prepare me for street evangelism and murder mill work too.

      If I can be of any help, WK has my email address. I sponsor inner city families to homeschool, and if they can do it, you can.
