Why Nearly 40 Percent of Gen Z Identify

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 2/16/2022 3:37:22 AM

I was shocked not long ago when I read a piece on the Newsweek website. The headline read “Nearly 40 Percent of U.S. Gen Zs, 30 Percent of Young Christians Identify as LGBTQ, Poll Shows.” (snip) That tells you a lot about the state of America today. (snip) It’s guaranteed that you won’t find this absurdity in nations where people struggle for food, water, shelter and freedom (snip) we have 40 million or more young people who have the luxury of navel gazing themselves out of the most basic of biological truths.

It's all quite silly. One of my young daughter's friends says she's bisexual. Child has never so much as held hands with anyone much less had sex. They say it because they have been taught you're special if you're an alphabet soup person. Who doesn't want to be special?

It's not silly, it's indoctrination. This is about the only thing our schools teach effectively today.

Kids havent changed. They want to be different, but not TOO different. They want to keep it inside the limits of what is considered normal, but still edgy. When we were kids, being gay was outside the limits of normal so nobody faked it. There were a few really gay kids and life was rough for them, but at least normal kids werent pretending to be just to be different. So, in order for the pedophiles to get fresh meat, they move the goal posts on what is normal. By the time the kids figure out they really arent a weird rainbow kid, they are either used up or have committed suicide. Either way, problem solved for the pedos.

This is shocking, but at the same time I am not surprised. Culture rot is real and it is being championed by the left. It seems they enjoy out weirding each other. Whatever is trending is the influencer. Apparently now, even sexual proclivities. We have been taught to be accepting of just about anything regardless if it is right, good, or moral. Pursuing a Godly life in this world is under attack because there is a clear delineation of right and wrong when you take that path. One word we don’t hear very often is sin even in many churches. It has become lost in the desire to be nonjudgmental. It makes us uncomfortable and we do not like discomfort of any kind. We bristle at the least bit of criticism. Our psyches just can’t take it so we navigate toward a group of people who are like minded and will not challenge us. However, that same group can be viciously critical of anyone outside their circle. Humans for the most part are social creatures. We enjoy being a part of something. The challenge today for traditional parents is finding a group of friends for your children at a young age who have your same values. The best decision my parents ever made was taking me to church and encouraging me to get involved. Many of the friends I made then are still my very dear friends. Our family has been rooted in the church and we have seen our children and grandchildren walk this same path. It is not a guarantee but it has been so very important when you are faced with a culture that is pulling you away from your foundational truths. That grounding in faith is crucial in that it gives a child a basis, a reason for having the courage to walk a different path. This is what has worked for our family. There have been bumps along the way but at the end of the day those values and truths that were instilled in our children we now see being passed down to their children. It is heartbreaking to see so many kids today who are rudderless. They have no core values or beliefs. When you are that kid, you are ripe for influencers who have very little to offer but emptiness. Be an influencer in your kids’ lives. Live out Christ in your life. You will never regret it.

For years they have been taught IF IT FEELS GOOD, DO IT! Now kids have no moral absolutes. Boys are girls, girls are boys, and it I'd cool to not be straight because that is being judgemental. They do it to fit in. .any outgrow it, but many are scarred for life, co fused as to what they need to be to be accepted.

Randi Whinegarten let the cat out of the bag a few days ago, claiming it's not about the science, it's about feelings. The schools have been pushing this nonsense for a few decades now, so it's not surprising that they've indoctrinated a generation of confused twits. But it's all really simple: XX = female, XY = male. Period. End of subject. I follow the Science.

Like marijuana, promoted by Soros and his evil minions, this was spread by those paid by him to corrupt the future of the West and the collapse of any society other than feudal. Everyone knows for decades now that he is the devil incarnate. In a just world, he, his family, and his minions would be sent back to he%%.

There is no moral code because parents don't take kids to church or synagogue. Ask them why they celebrate Christmas and Easter. It's because it is what you do, not for religious reasons. Going along with the crowd to fit in. The only moral training left is from the schools and look where that gets us. Same thing is happening with patriotism.

Its not true.While you see an upotick in kids professing some alpabet soup designation, in no way is it 40%. Look at your kids and their friends. Is it 40%with them? If not, then its more than 40% somewhere else. Its like the 10% strictly homosexual lie from thirty years ago. Numbers to promote complete acceptance. If the real number was shown, we could all say that it was an abomination. At "40%" the nitwit will say "Well evryone is doing it so i should just keep quiet",

Its not just age. Political inclination plays a part too. An elderly friend of mine over 75 insisted that over 10% adult males are homosexual (or gay as he put it). When I showed him how mathematically impossible that was based on published CDC numbers. He started arguing against CDC (who he rabidly supports on COVID) and finally the math. There is no convincing them.

It's the same reason so many kids in my generation smoked. Followers follow the leaders who represent what ever happens to be the "in" thing to do at any given time. The vast majority of us are followers and seek acceptance and the criteria for acceptance are established by the leaders of the cool kids club. Sadly a subset of what's currently an acceptance criteria involves perversion and mutilation. Another factor making this trend particularly harmful is the death of the grownup. (shamelessly stolen term from Diana West) Perpetual childhood has removed the adult resistance to dangerous pursuits of all things cool since the parents are still doing it themselves.

Yet another consequence of nth wave feminism (a. k. a. Frankfurt School/Gramscian cultural marxism). Delude our impressionable children that boys should be feminized, girls should be masculinized and to advance the lie that the nuclear family is a patriarchal instrument of oppression. No wonder "Gen Z" is so confused. Consider this: The Chinese Communist Party is keenly observing and taking heed what is culturally unfolding in the West. CCP official organs warn against raising a generation of emasculated boys and espousing sexually vague terms. To their credit, they realize boys will grow up to be men, husbands and fathers. Men that must do the heavy lifting (sometimes literally) in any society: dirty jobs, construction jobs, war fighting. Girls will grow up to be women, wives and mothers. Women must do the heavy lifting of raising children and running a household. To reject these truths is an invitation for societal suicide. While China (and Russia) will exploit the West's societal decline and fall, they are taking notice NOT to allow the alphabet nonsense to take root in their own culture.

That 40% stuff tells me that there are a lot of Gen Z kids looking for companionship. These people live with their phones and social media. They'll say anything to gain attention and belong to a group. It's like a click in high school. Ten years from now, they won't have the same ideas or convictions. As long as they believe they belong to a group, they won't view themselves as being lonely.

Humans tend to be herd animals, despite the romantic images of the loner in the wilderness many of us grew up on in movies, TV and books. We, largely, want to be a part of the accepted and acceptable, we want to know our place and to fit into it. We have allowed our school system to be take over by the Woke who teach our children to be LGBT and all the other alphabet soup, we teach our children that socialism/communism is the "fair" political system. Despite all the evidence that biologically there are two genders we teach them to pretend they can be what ever their imagination or sexual fantasies, regardless how perverted from either evolution or God's design, they want to be. Then we wonder why we are where we are as a nation and culture.

Given God's feelings in both the NT and OT regarding the misuse of our bodies like this, I just cannot consider willful living this kind of lifestyle being Christian. Mocking God is more like it. God loves all His creation, but He does not embrace or support their sinful ways. I blame a lot of this confusion the younger folks have on the indoctrination centers called public schools. Not just that, but the mental health profession has also had a hand in a lot of this problem as well.

It is not possible to ban all religion in education or public life... because even imposing the lack of an official religion is itself the establishment of a religion by default (atheism, nihilism, hedonism, universalism, secular humanism, etc. etc. etc.). The only real choice to be made is which religion will be 'official.' I suggest it is well past time for America to reimpose Christianity, the religion that made it the beacon of freedom and prosperity for the entire world... and stop this insane cultural experiment with sexual insanity.

Don't get overwrought by any described LGBTQ movement. The actual number of people is a tiny minority that contributes no money, elects no leaders, and is not politically active. How the left takes over everything. They put community organizers in front of the press and politicians claiming to represent groups. They are similar to Ray Krepps leading the way. Leftist infiltrators. A few follow along, not because of any support, but because they are detached, and curious, like the J6er's. The left takes over everything by these types of measures. As for todays youth, there a lot of good youth. There are a lot of wonderful parents. Times are changing. Boy and girl roles are no longer rigidly black and white. Women are police, men are nurses. Some people are discovering electing women to public office is not going to save the world. Men and women can be equally bad. In any case, roles have changed, and the world is changing. It will work out. I hope women will reject the tattoo's. It can't come soon enough. In short, those LGBTQ leaders are communist organizers of the Ray Krepps variety, and there is no 40% of youth in any movement. That is all another fraud.

The author's first mistake was to believe these statistics from a phony, fake, fraudulent media outlet like Newsweek, are actually credible. They lie about everything in an effort to get those of us who remain skeptical, to recognize we might be responsible for these events. Are we supposed to feel guilty just because they imply so? Although all in all, it's total crap. As an example: the mainstream media keeps touting 'statistics' that white Caucasians constitute 62% of the American population (these are specific numbers I've heard & read). Other articles I've read say minorities (Black, Asian & Hispanic) when added up, constitute less than 20% of the US population. How is this possible when 100% is the final goal? It isn't. Apparently, the media believes us to be stupid & we can't add or subtract the numbers. It's an out & out lie. Period. It's been my understanding hated white people in America constitute more than 70% of our population. Why would they lie? Touting collective guilt to make stupid white folk feel responsible & so that we back off from calling them out on the lies they continue to tell us. Indoctrination is quite nasty & when seen, quite ugly.

Every homosexual claims, "Everyone is a latent homosexual!" That is basic "Projection" and illustrative of a delusion. This is why homos get the crap beat out of them when they mistake human kindness/manors for a willingness to queer around. If homosexuality were "normal" there'd be some who choose to remain "virgins," until married.

Believe it..!! The School Teachers Union has been poisoning our grandchildren quietly for years. I've seen it first hand. I used to pick up my granddaughter and her friend from high school, which also was a charter school. One day on the way home, they were talking about learning that there were 30 new genders. WHAT! The evil forces that have infiltrated our schools are being paid to twist the minds of children and doing it with impunity. Parents found out about what their little darlings were learning by watching, seeing and hearing them being home schooled during the pandemic. It may have been a blessing in disguise. My granddaughter graduated from HS in 2020. She survived this poisoning and fortunately was not been effected but has suffered knowing her friend is thinking about transitioning. She is nineteen years old and these feminazi teachers have done a good job in destroying this girl. It makes me sick to think that Americans have unknowingly let this happen right before their eyes. In an ugly way, the pandemic has revealed a lot and the American people have paid a heavy price for it. History is not taught anymore. Instead it has been replaced with limitless transgender study. Eliminating the Dept of Education and the Evil School Teachers Union from the federal government should be some of Trump's top priorities, when he is reelected to the White House. Plus, he can assist in getting School Choice approved. If I was a young mother today, I would not send my children to any public school without of those changes being made.

Another GREAT DEPRESSION will straighten things out-- The Great Reset is in the works and has been ever since Nobama was elected in landslides because the Republicans put RINOs at the top of the ticket. No more "its their turn" candidates for me! Somewhere in the mid-1950s more persons were living in the city than on the farm, and have NO IDEA of "hard living". Now we have all of this nonsense of "metrosexuals" and neutered men with 'man buns' and little character. This latest generation of kids has gone way off from John Wayne to way off from even Pee Wee Herman!

From the closing weeks of 2020 through February 1, 2022, more than sixty percent of the world’s population was injected with Covid-19 vaccines. This means that in a period of less than fourteen months more than 4.7 billion people received at least one Covid shot. Tens of millions received as many as four doses. (snip) To begin administering a vaccine to the general population within such a short trial period was wholly unprecedented in the annals of modern medicine. To establish that a vaccine is safe, extensive long-term testing must be carried out.

You couldn’t miss the headlines: The annual percentage increase in inflation clocked in at 7.5%, making it the worst increase in 40 years. (snip) real inflation is probably even worse than the accelerated rate suggests. That’s because, in 1990, the government changed how it calculated inflation (something it also did in 1980). John Williams’s Shadow Government Statistics calculates inflation as it would have been calculated before 1980 and before 1990. According to his numbers, inflation would have been over 15% using pre-1980 metrics and over 10% using pre-1990 metrics. You don’t need the numbers, though, to tell you what you already know.

If you think the highest overall inflation rate in 40 years of 7% is bad, get ready for a real shock coming to a pump near you. Oil prices are surging so much that, ironically, even the "Green New Deal" president is begging global and domestic producers alike to ramp up production and pump, pump, pump! And despite his releasing millions of barrels of crude from the strategic oil reserve and pleading with oil-rich nations to increase their output, prices continue to climb. In early December, oil was trading at $65 per barrel. Today, it's over $90

SMETHPORT, Pa. — Some Democrats here in rural Pennsylvania are afraid to tell you they’re Democrats. The party’s brand is so toxic in the small towns 100 miles northeast of Pittsburgh that some liberals have removed bumper stickers and yard signs and refuse to acknowledge their party affiliation publicly. These Democrats are used to being outnumbered by the local Republican majority, but as their numbers continue to dwindle, the few that remain are feeling increasingly isolated and unwelcome in their own communities. “The hatred for Democrats is just unbelievable,” said Tim Holohan, an accountant based in rural McKean County who

Experts are warning that an increase in buried bodies as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic could be having an impact in the environment. In the U.S. alone, the number of people who have died with COVID-19 exceeded 900,000 this month and the number is increasing all the time. Around the world, the death toll is over 5.8 million according to the World Health Organization (WHO), though some estimates of excess mortality—a measure comparing all deaths recorded with those expected to occur—have put that figure close to 20 million. What this means is that burial facilities have faced unprecedented pressure as they attempt to allocate space and resources to store the bodies

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has admitted soaring US inflation is 'not acceptable'—then insisted the American economy would be even worse were it not for the very spending by the Biden administration that has been blamed for soaring prices. Speaking to AFP, Yellen said of the rise in cost of living—which hit 7.5 per cent last month: 'Inflation is clearly a great concern to Americans, and it really needs to be addressed. 'Certainly it's not acceptable to stay at current levels.' Her words were in marked contrast to Joe Biden's, who has repeatedly insisted that surging inflation figures are 'elevated,' and a temporary phenomenon. Yellen—who is America's first female

Hillary Clinton claimed accusations her campaign spied on Donald Trump are a 'conspiracy' tied to his mounting legal issues and slammed Republicans for backing 'coup plotters' and pushing the 'big lie' in her major comeback speech in New York on Thursday. 'We can't get distracted, whether it's by the latest culture war nonsense, or some new right wing lie on Fox or Facebook - by the way they've been coming after me again lately in case you might have noticed,' Clinton told the New York Democratic Convention in response to special counsel John Durham's filing over on Friday.

Although it’s impossible to predict economic crashes with certainty, a key economic indicator suggests the U.S. housing market is on the verge of an unprecedented crash, one that could end up being the biggest in America’s history. Following the 2008 stock and real estate market crashes, the Federal Reserve, Democratic-led Congress, and the presidential administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama began an unprecedented effort to pump new dollars into the financial system — and, to a lesser extent, the economy at large. The strategy behind the flood of quantitative easing, government takeovers, stimulus checks, and government welfare programs that followed

After previously dodging questions about the bombshell revelations in Special Counsel John Durham’s latest filing, Hillary Clinton has finally gone on record to respond. According to the twice-failed presidential candidate, Donald Trump and Fox News are “desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones.” According to a motion filed Friday by Special Counsel John Durham, lawyers for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign allegedly paid a technology company to “infiltrate” servers that belonged to Trump Tower and, later, the Trump White House “for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump.” “Trump & Fox are desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones.

San Francisco Unified School District Board of Education President Gabriela López, who lost a recall election this week, said Thursday those who supported her recall are "aligned" with White supremacists. López and two fellow board members — Vice President Faauuga Moliga and Commissioner Alison Collins — were all voted out Tuesday in a landslide, with more than 72% of voters opting to recall each of them. "So if you fight for racial justice, this is the consequence," López tweeted along with a photo of a Washington Post headline that said she and the two other recalled board members were "seen as too focused on racial justice."
New study casts doubt on ethanol's climate benefits 20 replies

A new study is casting doubt on the climate benefits of using ethanol as a fuel, finding that it may actually contribute more to global warming than gasoline. Researchers found that emissions from changes in land use to account for the growing demand for corn make corn-based ethanol no cleaner than gasoline. In fact, they determined that these changes likely make ethanol’s emissions at least 24 percent higher than those for gasoline, according to their study, which was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. A 2005 law established what’s known as the “Renewable Fuel Standard” requiring a certain quantity of biofuels, a category that includes ethanol,
