If you’re awake to what’s going on in government schools, you probably want your kid as far away from the clutches of the unhinged Woke Mafia that now controls them as possible.

Girls can’t go to the bathroom in some of these schools anymore without the possibility that boys might be watching them go to the bathroom - provided the boys “identify” as girls, which makes it their right, among the Woke, to be in the girl’s bathroom.

Boys also apparently have the right to join the girl’s track team and compete against girls - and take college scholarships away from girls - provided they “identify” as girls. Like Selina Soule, who lost her scholarship to a him who identified as a her - and set a new record for the women's 55 meter dash.

Taken to its logical conclusion, a 45-year-old male high-school teacher who “identifies” as a teenaged girl should be able to take one of his teenage male students to the prom. What's the harm in that, right?

Is it not the same thing in principle as giving biological boys the right to use the girl’s bathroom - or to join the girl’s track team - so long as they identify as girls?

Some actual girls - chromosomally identified - have had enough of biological fungibility.    

In Loudon County, VA, 8th grader Jolene Grover - an actual girl - had the guts to tell the Loudon County School Board that a boy isn’t an identity. A “gender” - something you pick - as opposed to sex, which is what you are.

A hairstyle - or clothes - as opposed to what's underneath them.

Everyone knows what a boy is,” she told the adults. “Even you.”

Grover’s mom removed her from the Loudon County Government School system to teach her at home precisely because the Woke adults who control it pretend not to know - but want to teach.

“My guidance counselor’s response to my concerns about bathroom privacy and safety was: ‘Well, there’s stalls in the bathrooms.’ "

Because that makes it ok.

“Now boys are reading erotica in the classroom next to girls and you want to give them access to girl’s locker rooms and want to force girls to call those boys ‘she.’ ”    

“You do this in the name of inclusivity while ignoring the girls who will pay the price.”

Physically - in terms of their safety. And psychologically, in terms of their being expected to deny objective reality - in the way Orwell described in his novel, 1984. The main character, Winston Smith, is tortured because he refuses to state that he believes his tormentor is holding up five fingers when he can see there are only four.

Of course, it is more than just the actual girls. The actual boys are paying the price, too. They are being Culturally Revolutionized to regard their biological maleness as intrinsically pathological - and are browbeaten over their supposed “privilege,” especially if they do not “identify” as trans, bi or gay or Klingon. 

Worst of all, if they are white - and straight and the product of... gasp Christians or Jews.

Basically, don't look like Jeff Spicoli. 

If they dare to object, it is because of their "fragility." 

The browbeating occurring under the auspices of Critical Race Theory - which is becoming the core curriculum in many government schools across the country, most of them in red states or red areas of otherwise blue states, as in the case of Loudoun County, Virginia. 

Its central tenet is that there is "systemic" racism saturating everything, kind of like a secret club that only whites are members of - yet it specifically singles out white kids, who are being punished, set apart and denied the same opportunities as other kids because they happen to be white. That seems pretty  . . . systemic since it is an actual policy, of a piece with the Whites Only policies that no longer exist in fact because they are no longer permissible in law.

Keisha King of Duval County, Florida, pointed out exactly that and more out to the Florida Board of Education. "It is sad that we are even contemplating something like critical race theory, where children will be separated by their skin color and deemed permanently oppressors or oppressed in 2021," she said. Noting that the kids being oppressed haven't oppressed anyone and that it is vicious to punish them for doing what they haven't done.

"CRT is not racial sensitivity, or simply teaching unfavorable American history, or teaching Jim Crow history. CRT is deeper and more dangerous than that,” she said. “CRT is a teaching that there is a hierarchy in society where white male heterosexual able-bodied people are deemed the oppressor and anyone else outside of that status is oppressed. That’s why we see corporations like Coca-Cola asking their employees to be less white, which is ridiculous. I don’t know about you, but telling my child or any child that they are in a permanent oppressed status in America because they are black is racist, and saying that white people are automatically above me, my children or any child is racist as well.”

Of course, a Woke response to her criticism of CRT could simply be that "oppressed" could identify as "oppressors" - in the manner of a boy identifying as a girl to watch girls go to the bathroom, or a man who identifies as a girl in order to take a boy to the prom.

In Woke government schools, anything goes. Including a commencement address read out to the graduating class of Justice High School in Falls Church, Virginia. The graduates were told by Fairfax County School Board member Abrar Omeish that they were about to enter a world filled with "Racism, extreme versions of individualism and capitalism and white supremacy.” It seems the school’s administrators lacked the puissance to prevent a nearly ululating jihadi from giving a high school commencement address.

It probably explains why more and more parents are waking up to the need to get their kids out of these schools.

And some states are waking up to the danger. Iowa just banned the teaching of Critical Race Theory, on the basis of theory that schools ought to be places where learning takes place, rather than "discriminatory indoctrination." 

Others will hopefully follow. Else we risk falling into the abyss, kids first.
