  1. The real reason so many Dems are quiet about the so-called “culture” wars is because we are parents & grandparents & we know that teaching K-5th graders about sex, especially transgender issues, is totally inappropriate, but we do not want to play into the GOP’s hands. There is very little we can do about this.

    Many of us came of age at a time when we did get comprehensive sex education in school, starting in fifth grade & continuing through 12th grade. I remember getting classes in birth control. Gender ideology wasn’t a thing then but we all knew kids who were different & except for the bullies amongst us (& there will be bullies always), we accepted these kids. Most of them grew up to be homosexual men or lesbian women or, like myself, bisexual … not trans. Ya know why? There was no pressure on them to be trans. They were allowed to move through the chaos & crisis of puberty (which all teens experience, regardless of sexuality & identity) & then grow into their true selves. If they chose to transition as adults, well, that was THEIR CHOICE AS INFORMED ADULTS.

    I do wish the Dems would get a backbone about this issue & many other issue but I’m old enough to realize that I might as wish for the moon. Meanwhile, trans rights are being trampled under trans ideology & everyone suffers, especially our children.
