I recently had an old friend and longtime commentator here contact me about this very issue.
“BOCA RATON, Florida – A South Florida woman was so shocked recently by “woke” and “cancel culture” books being sold in the baby section of Barnes & Noble, she recorded the titles and posted them on Facebook.
“OH MY LORD. Parents please wake up and see what is happening!” says Renee Times, a Republican precinct committeewoman in Palm Beach County.
“I took a trip to #barnesandnoble to buy a children’s gift check out some of these titles and how our children are being indoctrinated into this #woke Cancel Culture we are witnessing right before our eyes.”
“You gotta be kidding me. I’m at Barnes & Noble. Look at these books!” Times says in the video as she peruses titles, even flipping some to see what’s on the back. …”
“Some — usually straight — women I know turn themselves inside out to set a feminist agenda for their children: They refuse to let their kids watch Disney movies and eschew all things pink and princessy for their daughters; they adopt gender neutral wardrobes for themselves and their children; they carefully purchase books starring strong female protagonists. …
Even though some women have reaped the hard-fought rewards of more than a century of feminism — for instance, women as a whole earn more college degrees than men and we sit in more congressional seats than ever before in U.S. history — we can’t seem to rid our homes of the gross inequalities that persist between mothers and fathers, especially in the age of Covid-19, even though men today do more housework and child care than in previous generations. …”
Yes, if you go into your local Barnes and Noble, you will find this garbage on prominent display. They will usually have a display full of “antiracist” books Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility and Ibram X. Kendi’s How To Be An Antiracist out front. There are also books like this in the kids section.
It is never too early to start to teaching your kid how to protest for social justice or why they should hate themselves for being White or why they should resent men or why they are “trans.” Wokeness is a pseudo-religion for college-educated professionals who are atheists. This is their equivalent of devotional literature. The same stores have large sections for Christian books here in the South.
Most Americans are only dimly aware of what is going on in progressive marriages and families. They may have heard about drag queen story hour, but they haven’t heard yet about the trans men who are getting ghosted on dates, polyamory, young men being taught how to wear makeup by Jeffree Star, the trend of non-monogamy, chest feeding progressive dads and people who are raising their children as genderless theybies or how public schools are promoting miscegenation in sex education. Progressive men also have all kinds of bizarre fetishes like letting black men fuck their wives.
Note: It is not just progressives. Jerry Falwell, Jr., for example, liked to watch the pool boy have sex with his wife. This poison like gender fluidity eventually seeps out into the wider culture.
