It wasn’t long ago that two stories, in particular, tied the Dems up in knots. One was Desantis fighting Disney over anti-groomer legislation, the other was Virginia’s parents rising up against the school boards.
The ‘groomer’ controversy.
The left got their talking points out in both of those stories, wrapping their message in the language of victimhood and blame. DeSantis’s legislation preventing the sexual instruction of the lower grades was magically transformed into the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill (despite exactly Zero references to questions of sexual preferences), and the Virginia parents were ‘dangerous’ to teachers and trans students.
When the truth about both of those stories came out (including the school’s coverup of the rape of not one but TWO teenage girls by the same male student in a skirt) the right started fighting back by using ‘groomer’ as a counter-punch pejorative to describe people who insisted on sexualizing the school environment.
Before long, Big Tech was calling this phrase ‘hate speech’ and silencing social media accounts that called out perverts for an unhealthy interest in inculcating children in a particular sexualized worldview. (More on that, later.)
With that as a backdrop, let’s look into a new report from the Progressive stronghold from which Obama himself began his presidential run:
Sexual Misconduct Report in Chicago…
Chicago’s municipal office of inspector general (OIG) released a damning report documenting the behavior of adults in the school system toward children as the new year came upon us.
Chicago Board of Education Inspector General Will Fletcher reported 470 sexual complaints against Chicago Public School employees from students in 2022.
The report details students being abused, groped, groomed, assaulted and threatened by school officials.
One investigation found a former Junior ROTC staff member had sex with a 16-year-old high school student for a year. When he learned there was an investigation, the staff member threatened to kill the girl and her family if she cooperated with investigators.
A high school teacher exposed himself to a female 11th-grade student when the two were alone during driver’s education. The student told two other staff members about the incident, but both failed to alert administrators as mandated reporters.
Administrators only learned about the altercation because the girl took to social media when nobody believed her, and another student came forward with allegations against the same teacher, who now faces criminal charges and has since resigned. — IllinoisPolicy
The report also revealed an account accusing a high-school teacher of grooming five female students.
“The teacher pressured the students into sexual acts (including kissing a student in the teacher’s classroom), solicited sexual acts from them, and sexually harassed them with overtly sexual comments, frequent telephone calls and social media communications, and inappropriate intimate physical contact,” the report claimed.
These were listed as instances that had loopholes by which the accused could not be charged, including delayed reporting, the victims’ inability to cooperate, the conduct being determined “non-criminal”, and jury acquittals. –TheGuardian
That enumerates hundreds of instances of impropriety in a single city.
We all know how the public piles on, demanding heads roll, when similar allegations came against a religious figure or denomination.
Where is that pious outrage when the secular school system — which has far more vulnerable people under its care — is caught in acts of perfidy?
Could it have anything to do with the teacher’s union being one of the Democrat party’s most powerful support networks, and a media afraid to bite the hand that feeds them?
It really doesn’t matter who the person in a position of trust is, anyone who betrays it needs to have the book thrown at them, and any corrupted institution needs to be ripped down to the foundation and rebuilt.
Can we call them groomers NOW?
Will Big Tech let us use the very same word that government watchdogs used to describe predator teachers who were intentionally wearing down the natural barriers to intimate contact with adults?
That is, after all, the definition of grooming. A ‘Sexual Abuse Lawfirm’ (that’s the web name) gives this helpful list:
THE SIX STAGES OF SEXUAL GROOMING
Stage 1: Targeting a Victim
Stage 2: Gaining Trust
Stage 3: Filling a Need
Stage 4: Isolating the Child
Stage 5: Sexual Contact
Stage 6: Maintaining Control
How does this relate to Drag Queen Story Hour?
In case you were wondering whether the rabid interest in the sexualization of education has anything to do with creating a culture of sexualized children (ie: the end game of sexual ‘grooming’) we can go back to the philosophical origins of the Drag Queen story hour phenomenon itself:
…But while the drag queen might appear as a comic figure, he carries an utterly serious message: the deconstruction of sex, the reconstruction of child sexuality, and the subversion of middle-class family life.
This ideology’s foundations start with queer theory, the academic discipline born in 1984 with the publication of Gayle S. Rubin’s essay “Thinking Sex: Notes for a Radical Theory of the Politics of Sexuality.” Rubin sought to expose the power dynamics that shaped and repressed human sexual experience.” Modern Western societies appraise sex acts according to a hierarchical system of sexual value,” she wrote. “Marital, reproductive heterosexuals are alone at the top erotic pyramid,” whose bottom tier includes the “lowliest of all, those whose eroticism transgresses generational boundaries,” she wrote.
Rubin’s project was to subvert this sexual hierarchy and usher in a world beyond limits. Where does this process end? With the abolition of restrictions on the behavior at the bottom end of the moral spectrum—pedophilia.
Rubin denounces fears of child sex abuse as “erotic hysteria.” — Christopher Rufo, City Journal
