Biden's CDC Asks Children About Gender Identity In Tobacco Youth Survey
The Biden administration’s National Tobacco Youth Survey asks middle and high school students to disclose their sexual orientation and whether or not they are questioning their gender identity. You know, because of “science” or whatever.
Each year, the survey is distributed annually by the CDC. In 2020, a change to the survey included asking children if they identified as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or "something else." This year’s version asks directly about identifying as "transgender."
“Some people describe themselves as transgender and/or nonbinary when the way they think or feel about their gender is different from their sex assigned at birth. Do you identify as transgender and/or nonbinary?” the survey asks.
One answer is, "I am not sure yet or questioning if I am transgender and/or nonbinary."
It's not clear as to why a survey is asking these sorts of questions when its sole purpose is to track tobacco usage and corporate influence on youth.
“Sexual orientation is a person’s emotional, romantic, and/or sexual attraction to another person,” the question reads. “There are many ways a person can describe their sexual orientation and many labels a person can use. Which of these options best describes your sexual orientation?”
According to the survey, students could choose “straight or heterosexual,” “Gay or lesbian,” “Bisexual, pansexual, or queer” or “Asexual."
“There is a concern that this important survey that essentially informs the federal government’s understanding of the issues and drives its policy surrounding youth smoking may be being exploited for other purposes, perhaps to the detriment of its ultimate integrity,” Michael Chamberlain, director of Protect the Public’s Trust, a research and education organization, told the DCNF. “Whether controversial social goals are appropriate to be part of expensive taxpayer surveys on youth tobacco use may strike some as closer to appeasement of favored special interests than the genuine pursuit of sound scientific data.”
According to the Denver Gazette, this comes as the Census Bureau seeks permission to ask 15-year-olds about sexual orientation and gender identity on the American Community Survey.
This is one way progressives manipulate statistics to advance their social activism. They take random things like smoking and use specific examples of a small group of people to yell “racism” or whatever. Progressives love to take unequal representation to advance their “equity” crap. But the only problem here is that nothing plays out equally when left up to nature. That is just not how life works and that is not how it ever will unless you socially engineer outcomes.
It really is time we disband the CDC. They are nothing more than a woke, unscientific institution filled with elected bureaucrats.
Why are progressives so concerned with finding out the sexual preferences of minors? There is absolutely no reason unelected officials in a government agency should be concerned with this.
We are at a time where medicine and science have been compromised to the point of institutional capture.
