To Tell the Truth is Human Events News’ press analysis series. These stories will focus on “news” being reported by either The New York Times, The Washington Post, ABC News, NBC News, or CBS News. Despite 24-hour cable broadcasts, and an untold number of internet sources, these established, mainstream platforms continue to influence the majority of American citizens and their political opinions.
The “news” generated by these press outlets is better regarded as “opinion” crafted in a way designed to discourage skepticism and critical thought on the part of the audience. To Tell the Truth will be Human Events News’ periodic effort to help address this bias and restore the skepticism necessary on the part of all Americans to maintain a free society.
Although the effort to normalize the concept of young “transgender” children is well underway within almost all major media outlets, NBC News may so far be the most effective conduit for the indoctrination gobbled up by a certain subsect of the population, susceptible to the belief that children are somehow capable of choosing their own genders.
NBC News’ NBC Out section “showcases feature stories, original videos and other unique content about, and of interest to, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community.”
Last month, the section’s “#Pride30” list highlighted “a new generation of LGBTQ trailblazers, creators and newsmakers,” including figures like transgender swimmer Lia Thomas, and multiple “transgender” children.
The series included a feature celebrating the 11-year-old “trans youth activist” Kai Shappley who wants “to be everything.”
“At 11 years old, Shappley has already become a nationally recognized transgender advocate who aspires to be president and mom to 103 cats,” reports NBC.
"She first started learning about politics at age 5, when the Legislature in her home state of Texas tried to pass a bill that would have prevented her from using the girls’ bathroom because she’s transgender."
“'It’s sad that I had to start learning politics at such a young age, but I had to,' Kai told NBC News. The Texas Senate passed the 'bathroom bill,' but it later died in the House."
"Since then, Kai and her mom, Kimberly Shappley, have become nationally recognized activists. Kai has spoken at Pride rallies and news conferences and has traveled to Washington, D.C., to speak to members of Congress about the Equality Act, a bill that would provide the first federal nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people in housing, employment and many other areas of life. In January, she was named a Time Kid of the Year finalist."
A follow-up piece about Shappley titled “Texas trans activist, 11, flees the state after years of advocacy,” explains sympathetically that her mother started planning the move last year, when the child testified against a bill that “would have made it a felony for doctors to provide trans minors with gender-affirming medical care.”
Featured alongside Shappley in NBC's "Pride" themed list was “Transgender teen Luc Esquivel,” celebrated by NBC because he “is suing Tennessee so he can play golf.”
Of course, Esquivel is not suing Tennessee so “he” can play golf. “He” is suing Tennessee so “he” can play golf with the boys, even though “he” is a girl.
“Luc Esquivel, a 14-year-old rising sophomore who lives in Knoxville, Tennessee, just wants to play golf, but he’s banned from competing on the boys’ golf team at his high school,” NBC reports of the female child.
“Esquivel said he knows he would enjoy competing on a team, because he competed on the girls’ golf team in middle school.”
And then there’s Cameron Samuels, “who uses gender-neutral pronouns.” The NBC headline says he “packed school board meetings to challenge book bans,” but the story itself begins with Samuel’s concerns about the school’s internet browsing filter, which blocks “them” from visiting sites like that of The Trevor Project. NBC describes The Trevor Project as “an LGBTQ youth suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization.”
All of these articles were authored by NBC Out’s Jo Yurcaba (who also, incidentally, goes by “they/them” pronouns). Yurcaba’s work has been featured in this series multiple times before, as “they” seem to have a monopoly on the production of transgender child propaganda at NBC.
An earlier piece in this series highlighted another article from Yurcaba, making the case that it was nothing more than a PR release for The Trevor Project–a child sex change advocacy group, which also happens to be funded by the creators of Lupron, a drug given as a “puberty blocker” to “transgender” children.
But perhaps the most revealing object of NBC’s series is not by Yurcaba, and incidentally not children, but this time about a college professor. Katelyn Cooper, NBC explains, “is making biology education more inclusive for LGBTQ undergrads.”
Cooper, an Arizona State University School of Life Sciences Assistant Professor, “is conducting nationally-funded research” into how to make the subject of biology, in which she has a doctorate, more LGBTQ friendly.
Cooper and her team’s nationally-funded research culminated in a list of recommendations for biology educators. Notable selections include:
“Learn the specific vocabulary around the LGBTQ+ identity.”
- The team provides a glossary of examples of said vocabulary. Including:
- Androgyne: An individual who is androgynous, meaning they identify and/or present as neither traditionally masculine nor feminine.
- Cisgender: A term used to describe someone whose gender identity and sex assigned at birth align (e.g., female and female-assigned at birth).
- Cisnormativity: The assumption that all individuals are cisgender.
- Enby: A gender nonbinary person or someone who does not identify their gender as a man or woman. It is the phonetic pronunciation of “NB” (nonbinary) and can sometimes be used as a term in place of “girl” or “boy.” It should be noted that not all who identify their gender as nonbinary are comfortable with this term.
- Performative allyship: Performative allyship, also sometimes referred to as ally theater, is the practice of flaunting supposed allyship, but not following through with actions indicative of true allyship; in other words, allyship that exists as an occasional public “performance” instead of a continuous, well-informed labor.
- Transphobia: Describes fear, aversion, hatred, violence, anger, or discomfort felt or expressed toward people who do not conform to society’s gender expectations.
- The team provides a glossary of examples of said vocabulary. Including:
Be careful about making jokes:
"Be Thoughtful about the use of Humor and Pop Culture in the Classroom and How That Can Impact LGBTQ+ Students"
“Discuss the full range of gender and sexuality in biology class.”
- "When addressing these topics, we should make clear distinctions between chromosomes, hormones, gender, biological sex, and internal and external genitalia; these topics are often conflated, but each is distinct and nuanced. Because reproductive body parts are often viewed as being synonymous with gender, we encourage instructors to use language in a way that detaches body parts from gender (e.g., stating 'some people have penises, some people have vulvas,” dissociates biological traits from gender identities such as 'girl' or 'boy'). Additionally, instructors should recognize that not everyone has all the body parts associated with their sex when discussing reproduction and development (e.g., having a vagina does not always mean a person has ovaries). When explaining concepts, it is important to be clear about their assumptions (e.g., 'in this example, we’re assuming a breeding population of flies in which all males have functioning testes and all females have functioning ovaries, but of course in reality, things are usually more complex')."
- "Instructors can also intentionally select certain language based on the context of the lesson. When doing a Punnett square and discussing chromosomal movement, 'chromosomal male' could be used, but in discussions of alternation of generations, 'sperm-producing partner' may be more appropriate."
“Overtly support the LGBTQ+ community.”
- “Silence about LGBTQ+ issues may be interpreted as nonsupport.”
To Tell The Truth: While America’s corporations spends the month of June performing their yearly rainbow-colored money grab, America’s news media does the dirty work, and they do it all year round. NBC’s list of "transgender" child heroes and the government-funded professors who make their internalized confusion possible is not an anomaly–but it is a perfect representation of the Mainstream Media’s commitment to pushing the public toward the rejection of biology and in the direction of child sex-change operations.
