50 years ago… 20 years ago… heck, even 2 years ago under Trump… Would you ever have imagined, in your wildest nightmares, that radical leftist activists calling themselves teachers would be setting up secret areas at school for children to undress and change into trans outfits? And in middle school, no less?
Well, unfortunately, that’s exactly the hell that America has found itself in. It’s 2022, Joe Biden is President, parents are labeled terrorists while the actual terrorists are handed billions in high-tech weapons, and schools are allowing teachers to create and maintain “secret gender transition closets” that are used to encourage children to change their clothes along with their gender, behind their parent’s backs.
So-called ‘safe spaces’ for gender transition originally started in colleges, and, like all other radical education theories and tactics, these trans closets – a room stocked with transgender clothes and accessories – are now appearing at middle schools and high schools across the country.
However, since these are younger children in this scenario and not college students, the trans closets are being used for a much more nefarious agenda – hiding the trans behavior and indoctrination from parents. Instead of simply providing an array of clothing options to wear, the students are told to change into their preferred clothing when they arrive at school and change back out to what they arrived in before going home – that way their parents are kept in the dark about their child’s trans identity.
Not only are these children being indoctrinated with a radical sexual ideology that has no basis in reality, but they are also being taught to keep things hidden from them.
The Epoch Times provided several examples of these “secret gender transition closets,” which they say are popping up “more” of late, especially in the wake of the “don’t say gay” hullabaloo over Florida’s new Parental Rights bill. In one example, Thomas Martin-Edwards, a transgender California teacher and founder of the “Queer Teacher Fellowship,” explains the true goal of these secret areas in a recent TikTok video.
From the Epoch Times:
“The goal of the transition closet is for our students to wear the clothes that their parents approve of, come to school and then swap out into the clothes that fit who they truly are,” the teacher said.
The California Family Council and others eventually confirmed the identity of the teacher as Oakland Unified School District Spanish teacher Thomas Martin-Edwards, who is also the founder of “Queer Teacher Fellowship.”
Martin-Edwards, the teacher who runs the trans closet, is also transgender. He has posted videos of himself in the classroom showing off the stilettos he wears to school.”
As for the school? They are apparently just letting it happen. Neither the district nor the teacher responded when asked for comment by the Epoch Times.
Another example comes from Colorado, where another trans closet was found to be in operation at the Denver Conservatory Green Middle School after it was exposed on social media. Naturally, parents and people in the community were outraged, with many tweeting their displeasure at the school, which, like the other one, did not respond when asked for comment.
Furthermore, the school is demanding nearly $2,000 to produce public records related to the trans closet.
The Epoch Times had more:
“‘This is grooming,’ Tweeted one Colorado man, ‘Police should come to the classroom and arrest whoever the teacher is in this classroom.’
The original post about the Denver trans closet was made by ‘Buy Nothing Central Park’ and refers to the closet for transgender students as being started at “our school.” It also asks for clothing for the trans closet being dropped off at the school.
Megan Fox, a freelance columnist for PJ Media and co-host of the weekly YouTube show “Exposing Family Court Corruption,” recently raised $1,650 through gofundme.com to pay for documents relating to the trans closet at a Colorado school.
Fox recently wrote in her column that the school told her she had to pay $1,650 to obtain the documents, which she requested via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). According to Fox, the school said the bill was based on 55 hours of staff time at $30 an hour to fulfill her request.”
Like all other movements on the left, the increase in these secret areas is far from an organic occurrence – it’s a widely-implemented and calculated agenda.
Case in point, an Arkansas-based nonprofit group called “The Transition Closet” is pushing these grooming spaces in schools all across the country and was directly tied to the example above in California.
In a recent post on its Facebook page, the group championed the school for its new partnership.
From The Transition Closet’s Facebook post:
“We are extremely excited to begin our journey in working with Fremont High School of Oakland, California, along with our favorite teacher of TikTok/@justaqueerteacher.”
In case there were any doubts about the true nature of this agenda, the founder of the nonprofit group, Amare Roush, doubled down on the “goal” to keep the spaces hidden from parents, because if not – you guessed it – the children will die or get beat up by their parents.
Just like Psaki, Buttigieg, and the rest of the leftists who yell ‘you’re a murderer’ every time someone disagrees with their radical hysterics… The same clowns who screech in favor of abortion.
These people have no shame.
From the Epoch Times:
“Amare Roush, founder of The Transition Closet, told The Epoch Times that her organization does support keeping the existence of trans closets at schools secret from parents, because of the abuse she says children often face at home if they disclose to their parents they are transgender.
‘We do provide a safe space for kids whose parents are not accepting, because it’s known to help lower the suicide rate,’ said Roush who is also a certified advocate for domestic violence victims.
‘These kids are going to do it anyway, we just want a way to provide them with a way to do it safely to where they’re not wearing clothes that are too small for them, or doing so in a way that’s going to get them hurt by their parents.’”
Thankfully, not everyone in California is completely off their rocker. The Christian Conservative group California Family Council published a scathing rebuke of the secret trans closets popping up in their state.
From The CFC:
“California schools have taken their effort to subvert parents a step further. An Oakland high school is creating a “transition closet” where students will be allowed to change out of the clothes that their “parents approved of” and into clothes that align with their gender identities.
This is completely inappropriate and deceitful. In addition to gender ideology madness, this school is teaching children that it is acceptable to defy their parents.
They are teaching children that their personal thoughts and feelings should surmount the guidance of their God-given authorities. This dangerous sense of individualism threatens to destroy our country.
OUSD and the Transition Closet should be denounced and punished as firmly as possible.
This is one of many stories in which schools are attempting to subvert parents and even hide information from them, especially regarding students’ gender identity. The California Teachers Association even held a conference instructing teachers on how to undermine parents and indoctrinate students with progressive gender ideology.”
