👇🏻 A great example of the manipulation of language to gain access to children. #dragqueen #storytelling #children #safeguarding #SafetyFirst
What is a "rich experience"? I do believe they are 'story telling'. What does "interactive" mean? An 'understanding of different communities' is used to manipulate, as is 'can reduce inequality'. A healthy positive start in life for children is one withOUT sexualization
Note how they use language & words to make the audience believe that teaching them about drag, etc. gives children a 'positive start' in life. This is manipulation. Exposing children to drag is going to 'reduce inequality' or normalise drag? #linguistics #questions #manipulation

⚠️⚠️We need your attention to one of the child campaigns organized by @87films!

As many families live together in peace with their families and friends today, families in Afghanistan are praying day and night not to lose their children due to malnutrition. (1/3) Image
The number of malnourished children is rapidly increasing, and children are the primary victims of this unprecedented crisis.

This is a must read, and I will die on this hill: #Children must be protected from #SARSCoV2 #COVID19 - Guest column: Don't be fooled by the myths about kids and COVID flourishing on social media… via @theadvocatebr
"(Before 2019) Preventable disease and death were just that, preventable. There was no acceptable pediatric body count." and "Of all the myths associated with COVID-19, one of the earliest was that the virus is harmless for children." #SARSCoV2 #COVID19
"Risk mitigation is key to reducing preventable disease and death in childhood...Masks and vaccines are the metaphorical equivalent of seat belts and car seats...We may be done with COVID-19, but COVID-19 isn’t done with us."

Unknown #Hepatitis in #children: From my point of view as a clinical virologist, there are many aspects that speak against #Adenovirus, with important implications for treatment. Why? Viral loads in the cases reported to be low. Normally viruses causing hepatitis are massively
found in the blood. Hepatitis virus A, B, E, when causing fulminant clinical hepatitis: very high viral loads (C rarely causes this). Same for other viruses with hepatic tropism (eg Yellow fever). Viral hepatitis with pronounced clinical picture but low viral loads doesn’t exist
Now in the children with hepatitis no Adenovirus was detected in the liver biopsies, and viral load in blood was low. In some cases, Adenovirus DNA only in whole blood but not plasma. Again: a virus that is replicating in liver should be found everywhere: plasma, serum, biopsy

.@vosdscott was talking about #homelessness about 35 minutes into the VOSD podcast from a few days ago. I've spent some time thinking through what he & @andy_keatts were talking about.
I read about/ hear most people reducing #unhoused people to abstractions and dismissing what is obvious about living #homeless: the stress of not having your own residence makes you kind of crazy. It's natural.
People with means and a few rungs up on Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs are blind to where the homeless are.…

The importance for quick data sharing & finding the cause for unclear #hepatitis in #children is also for the right treatment. Huge difference if it needs antiviral treatment (that only makes sense when there is actually virus) or treatment for an immune-mediated pathogenesis.
Since this is ongoing since a while, I would love to see some early data, even if preliminary (biopsy findings). And yes, transparent communication on #SARSCoV2 #COVID19 serology would also help against speculation of any kind. There are aspects for & against each theory.
Since parents were re-assured by governments & MANY health professionals that catching #SARSCoV2 #COVID19 is not a big deal for children (& therefore few - no efforts to mitigate transmission), any link, however low the plausibility, deserves a thorough & transparent assessment

Of the increasing number of initiatives setting out in recent years to challenge heteronormativity in education, the 2006-2009 No Outsiders project has arguably been one of the #MostInfluential
Conducted across 15 primary schools in England, #No Outsiders
Conducted across 15 primary schools in England, No Outsiders was an action research project that sought to disrupt heteronormativity through critical pedagogy, gaining widespread academic and media attention in the process
In spite of its prominence, though, there has been a lack of research exploring the ways in which #children have incorporated this work into their everyday understandings and doings of #gender and #sexuality.

Made worldwide news…practitioners & policy makers across UK

Thank you for reporting on the difficulties faced by the #NoOutsiders project team ("Gay education in primaries climbs back into the closet" (TES, October 17)

The project's aim to challenge homophobia & transphobia in & thru primary education was always likely2 be controversial
The project's aim to challenge homophobia and transphobia in and through primary education was always likely to be #controversial, but we have no intention of being stopped in our tracks even by the #extremity of #opposition to this #groundbreaking work from certain groups

Really interesting 168-strong survey, though a shame that only 2 surrogate mothers responded, so with an unintentional focus on those who benefit from #surrogacy it collects key data with balance provided. Our analysis follows. Epic 🧵 1.
2. Same sex respondents (9), 5 admit to using ‘legal loopholes’ to access #commercialsurrogacy in #Ukraine – laws there only permit infertile heterosexual couples to apply for #surrogacy
3. Reason for choosing #surrogacy: #adoption was restricted or not available (this refers to other countries, UK does not discriminate legally against same-sex couples) but #surrogacy can be either expensive or cheap.

You know how groomers & CRT lovers always say “It’s all just taught in college?” Well they’re right. Here are current books aspiring teachers are studying.

What do you think these activists will be bringing into the classroom?

Still think it isn’t wide spread or systemic? ImageImageImage

This is the type of policies being pushed into K-12 school children by radicals disguised as “it’s just about kindness & love”. They’re brainwashing your children with political & gender propaganda all the while telling them to not trust you, their own parents. Take action!

Have we failed in bringing up.our ‘modern’ kids?

A very distressed neighbour shared that he had driven home after a long day at work. As he entered, he saw his wife in bed with fever. She had laid out his dinner on a tray.

Everything was there just as he wanted it. The dal, vegetables, salad, green chutney, papad and pickles… ”How caring,” he thought,
“Even when she is unwell, she finds the strength to do everything for me.”

As he sat down to eat, he realised that something was missing.

He looked up at his grown up daughter, who was watching TV and said,

Beta (child), can you get me my medicine and a glass of water, please?

She rolled up her eyeballs to show her displeasure at being disturbed, but did the favour nevertheless.

Who is Responsible??
An old African proverb says it takes a village to raise a child.

Training children is partnership between the Parents. the School and the society they live in.
The report card that just came out now is the results of parents and the school. My conjecture is that something has messed up these kids at home way before school. School has become a conducive environment for enabling the mixing of bad eggs and blank eggs.
Homes and schools ought to be a controlled environment, where children are shielded from some of the things that society offers. Society sings lewd songs with reckless abandon; the media is bursting with inappropriate age sensitive information that is uncensored.

𝗖𝗵𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗱, 𝗥𝗮𝗽𝗲 𝗼𝗿 𝗦𝗲𝘅, 𝗧𝗿𝘂𝘁𝗵 𝗼𝗿 𝗗𝗮𝗿𝗲! 𝗣𝗮𝗿𝘁 𝟭 Every day, a new crisis trends. Some of us can’t keep up.
I feel it’s important I comment about this issue for a few reasons:
1.Why I took
my kids out of Chrisland,
2.Primary school children having sex which isn’t new, is now a school’s fault?
3.Who is responsible?

When people take to social media condemning schools and parents, it’s good to look inwards, and take lessons to prevent what can happen 𝐭𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮!
Why did I take my children from Chrisland?

I took my kids out of Chrisland about 10yrs ago, as you can guess they are way past that level now. I saw a few signs, added them together and decided to remove them.

TY @innodim for inviting me to speak! My cognitive PEM wouldn’t let me be great but I appreciate her encouragement & summary! Want to be sure my main points are clear in re to Black Maternal #Mental Health, Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders #PMADs, & disparities.#AIMART #BMHW22
I am no expert, so I'll share what I know. Black mothers are more at risk of #PMADs & are less likely to receive treatment b/c the structural social & economic inequities as a result of #antiBlack #racism & #misogynoir in this white supremacist patriarchal society.#BMHW22
“Close to 40% of Black mothers will suffer from postpartum depression [(PPD)]” OR ‘Systemic racism & sexism harm Black mothers which manifest as PPD for a reported ~40%.’ Addressing these risk factors associated w PMAD is key:
Lack of access to high-quality medical care

Therapist day: a 10 year old girl in Australia was put on puberty blockers. She is now 15 and on crutches. Not sure I like my job anymore 😳😳😳 #trans #gender #children #medicaltyranny
Obviously I can’t say much about this case, except that it’s true and it’s due to the puberty blockers 😬😬😬
Also to the therapist nazis, it’s none of your business

Current research on microplastics is the stuff of nightmares-

They’re dangerous, they’re spread through our food, they're in the air... they’re everywhere

Thread 1/x
#health #ClimateCrisis #PlasticPollution #food
Much of the research is trapped behind paywalls, and only reported on in a limited, fragmented pattern

-like so much else when large corporations cause environmental damage and impose widespread health impacts on the public

#health #ClimateCrisis #PlasticPollution #food
The growing risks of microplastics are a direct function of an ongoing push by the same sociopathic corporations that are driving the climate crisis

Remember, there’s been an alarming increase in the number of children~particularly girls~identifying as “trans” throughout the west in the last 5 years. It’s ok to question why. It’s ok to take a watchful waiting approach. It’s ok to refer them to a therapist to explore the 1/
underlying causes for their dysphoria & for their desire to opt out of becoming a woman or a man. For example, child sexual abuse, confusion about sexuality, eating disorders, self harm, autism, depression, internalised misogyny or homophobia. Before the recent escalation in 2/
children presenting to DRs & clinics with “gender dysphoria” it was quite rare for a girl to express incongruity with the her sex & only a tiny number of boys presented. There’s been a 5000% increase in children presenting as “trans” in the last few years.
Why can’t we press 3/

🧵 There is a reason why we have minimum ages for several benefits in our society. 16 to drive, 18 to get a tattoo, 21 to buy alcohol, 25 to rent a car without restrictions. Car insurance companies charge a higher premium for drivers under a certain age.
We all know why. Every single one of us was 16, 18, 21, 25. Seriously think back, how much did you really understand about life?

Are we all seriously going to attempt to “have a conversation” with those who think it’s perfectly fine to sexually confuse 5 year olds?
That life altering hormone blockers & horrific sex surgeries for pre-teens and teens are anything but the desires of evil child abusers?
