California Social Workers REQUIRED To Ask 10-Year-Olds About Their “Sexual Orientation” And “Gender Identity”
There are many reasons why our foster care system needs to be reformed. However, it was traditionally believed to be a safety net for endangered children. But when kids are in crisis, you would probably assume that the last thing you tell them would be that Sam can now become Samantha. But nope. At least that is not the case in the County of Los Angeles.
Los Angeles County Social workers are required to ask children as young as 10 years old about their “sexual orientation” and “gender identity,” according to The Christian Post.
In a statement to The Christian Post, the county Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) said the practice is “designed to promote the overall mental health and well-being of [LGBT] youth.”
“We recognize that these dialogues are critical steps toward providing every child, inclusive of sexual orientation and gender, the opportunity to thrive in a supportive and caring environment.”
DCFS policy states that there is “no right or wrong age to ask a child/NMD about their sexual orientation and gender identity and expression.”
What does that even mean? Why do we even have to know?
In an interview with James Klug and Billboard Chris, a California woman who claims to hold a senior role at LA County’s Child Protective Services told them that every child at least 10 years of age gets asked for their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
She also mentioned a lot of social workers don’t like asking these questions.
"These are children coming from terrible homes and all sorts of abuse." Chris wrote on an X post. "Is it any wonder so many kids in state care think they are trans? They start getting brainwashed the moment they enter the doors of CPS!"
Klug offered to blur out her face but she agreed it’s important that people stop being anonymous.
"We have to ask children that come from abusive homes who are already going through a lot of trauma,” she said in the video.
She added that it is mandatory to ask all children about their gender identity and sexual orientation “even if they’re home with their parents.”
“I don't think we should be having conversations about gender and sex with children,” she added.
Approximately 10 percent of children in CPS are sexually abused. This really is not the time to start asking pre-teens what their sexual preferences are, not that there is ever an appropriate time.
When a child is taken out of the home, that is already a very hard and confusing life experience. There is no need to add fuel to the fire by bringing in gender nonsense.
Do these people truly believe it’s acceptable to ask a sexually abused 10-year-old their gender identity?
About 19 percent of youth in foster care in Los Angeles identify as LGBT, with 5.6 percent identifying as transgender.
In regards to the transgender percentage alone, that is nearly five times higher than youth outside of foster care.
Do you think it’s just a coincidence that kids in foster care are more likely to be trans than those at home?
At the very least, it is probably safe to assume there is a correlation between entering foster care in Los Angeles and an increasing transgender rate.
State law mandates hormone treatment and surgery for transgender foster youth. These kids have no one to advocate for them and they may end up making an irreversible decision at a time when they are going through so much trauma.
All that said, kids are highly malleable and the last thing we need is “adults” turning gender into something ambiguous for children who are already going through a traumatic experience.
