First off, you're confusing gender with sex. Sex is biological and gender is a social construct. The only people arguing against that are a very vocal minority. Second, you don't know me or what I want. You can believe all you want that it's a conspiracy to reject science or whatever, but in reality we just want to live our lives without people like you telling us what we want or trying to take away our rights. No one is saying that a man is a woman and a woman is a man except for dumbasses, all we're saying is that trans people exist.

Kitchen_Witch13

Okay so as a fairly liberal person living in a conservative area, I will admit I want to "indoctrinate" my children to a certain degree and I'm willing to homeschool for a few years to do it. I want my kids to be tolerant and accepting little humans who are at least a little resistant to racism, homophobia, etc. I want them to know, before they enter our conservative leaning public school environment, that sometimes people are mean for these specific reasons and that those reasons are wrong. They shouldn't be friends with kids who are mean to others for those reasons and mommy and daddy don't keep friends who have those beliefs either. However, I will not be rewarding my kids with material goods for consuming ridiculously slanted left wing media and literature. That's just...weird.

So you want to parent your children? am I saying that right? like this is called parenting so you are going to parent. that sounds weird but like you get what I'm trying to say right?


Kitchen_Witch13

I'm using the term "indoctrinate" here because if you teach your kid tolerance and acceptance of other cultures, abilities, and lifestyles then the right wing will say you're "indoctrinating" your children, whereas this kind of nonsense on their end is what they would call "good parenting". I also plan on being very intentional with the messaging I give my kids early on, more so than your average parent. We live in a very white, very conservative area and it's important to me that my kids are surrounded by overt examples of other cultures, family styles, and ways of life. My mom (and others I know, both older and younger) is a culturally ignorant white Midwestern lady and I do not want my children to be my age and reacting the way she does when she sees a "new kind" of person. An example: The first time I drove her through the Catskill region and she saw a group of very traditional Jewish people walking to synagogue she kept saying "wow, look at those" and I kept having to say "Look at those PEOPLE, mom. They are PEOPLE". She kept getting nervous about where they were all going in such big groups. It wasn't anti Semitism because she had no idea they were Jewish. They were just people who did not look and dress like her or like other people she was familiar with. It was a complete inability to process the existence of a new (to her) culture and to respect the individuals as people similar to herself. I don't want that for my kids.


NOT_an_ass-hole

i would be nervous if a huge group of people who i dont know were all headed to one place, regardless of what they look like.


Kitchen_Witch13

Why? If they're not being loud or disruptive I don't see a problem. This was families with children walking to their religious service on a Saturday.


NOT_an_ass-hole

i grew up in a very atheist area, and so seeing large groups of people who arent in a group but are all heading to the same place creeps me out since i havent seen it much.


Kitchen_Witch13

Sounds like your issue is more with people going to religious gatherings and not people heading somewhere in a group.


NOT_an_ass-hole

it rarely happens in a non religious context, although when it does (for example, school plays) it creeps me out there too


Qadim3311

The thing is, in a conservative rural area you’re probably going to have to try harder if you want to ensure your children internalize tolerance. You might get lucky but the fact of the matter is you’re going to have to counter the prevailing narrative that will surround them. They’re going to hear a lot of bullshit from their peers and neighbors in a place like that, and without a special effort (more than is demanded in a diverse population center, for example) then they’re likely to come out of their youth with some bad ideas just based on the majority of proximal people spouting them.


lesbiansexparty

O I understand that I just wish more parent understood how to raise their children to be decent human beings.


Spunknikk

A little resistant to racism homophobia etc? Idk I'd want my sperm demons to be extremely resistant to all that... But that might be because I'm a far leftist and not fairly liberal....


Kitchen_Witch13

Eventually they will be very resistant. I'm talking about a kid who's 7 or 8 at the oldest, going to public school for the first time. Not an adult who just kind of thinks those things are bad. Sure, lots of little kids with liberal parents will talk a big game about not liking racism or homophobia because that's what mom and dad like to hear but until they see those things firsthand and have the real chance to do something it is literally just talk. Not much different than conservative little kids parroting their parents.


tailortroubadour

My parents used to do the equivalent of this shit to me in order to earn computer time. Jokes on them, still turned into a bisexual socialist.


Kitchen_Witch13

Omg that's wild If my mom had ever thought that I was anything other than a completely heterosexual person, I bet there would have been crying, and some yelling. And then I don't know what. She went to a Methodist church with many prominent and fully accepted gay members so calling her pastor to talk to me and make me straight would have been a no-go. I was a good judgmental conservative until I went to college and met other people and heard other things and learned more about myself.

Bruh homeschooling 🤨


Kitchen_Witch13

Bruh I've been teaching for about ten years now, it's gonna be okay. Our local public school provides a curriculum to those who want it so if you're planning to bring your kids into public school at some point - probably around 3rd grade for us - you have a solid plan as to what they're supposed to learn. And if my kids get through the first two years of high school and want to take the GED and be done early, I'll probably let them as long as they have a solid plan that isn't "sit at home and eat cheetos". If they want to get a part time job doing something related to a career interest of theirs and start trade school or community college at that point, I'd totally support that. Or they can stay and do all four years if that's what interests them. There can be more to education than what the one public school option available to us here, has to offer.


Smallfloppa124

I see; honestly can’t blame you


IM_INSIDE_YOUR_HOUSE

I know someone who homeschools all four of their kids and tbh those kids are some of the most polite and intelligent kids I’ve ever met. Whatever the tradeoffs are seem worth it. They still have friends as well, they just meet them at extracurricular activities. Mileage will vary, obviously.


Smallfloppa124

I think it’s the fact that mileage can vary *alot* that’s the problem.


ZhouSeiBeets

you've got something personally against parents that choose to home-school? or otherwise, could you elaborate on the eyebrow emoji?


Smallfloppa124

That’s a confused emoji lol; homeschooling is a pretty risky thing for your kids education.


Kitchen_Witch13

It's risky if you don't know what you're doing and/or are not open to help and resources. You run into trouble when people have very strong beliefs than conflict with what is normally taught in school and purchase very odd or slanted materials and curriculum. I have no problem using the curriculum the district provides but when we get to the parts that gloss over important facts, we'll take the time to actually learn some of those facts.


Promethazine163

Ah yes you're indoctrinating your kids to be decent human beings who respect others

I think I've been banned from r/politics for saying "I hope you live to see your kids reject and abandon you." You know, to some terrifying right winger whose baseline beliefs are violent oppression.

SylvySylvy

The sad thing is they probably won’t unless they realize they’re gay/trans. I’m assuming the kid is white because PragerU. Unless they realize they’re part of an oppressed group other than women they’ll just turn into a Karen and live life thinking they’re the victim EDIT: I’m should add I’m glad there are exceptions to this, and I said “probably” for a reason. I’m just saying I personally had to come to a realization that I literally could not be myself and be around these people before I had the determination to leave that life behind. If you don’t have to deal with the majority of the consequences of what you support because you’re white and middle class (I wasn’t exactly middle class but we lived like it) you probably won’t change, because it’s actually quite easy to be stupid like that. All you’ve got to do is parrot what everyone else says and you literally never have to back it up with action because you’re just assumed to be correct. If I wasn’t transgender I would never have come to the realization that I could never be a part of their group and I would never have become who I am today. Which is one of the only reasons I’m okay with not having been born a cis girl. I’d have been insufferable.


felinefelons

yeah, coming from a pretty far right environment when I was younger definitely pushed me further to the left. having a such a detailed blueprint of what NOT to be like certainly helped

Nah, my parents did this shit to me and I turned into a huge leftist.


Nefilim314

It’s going to depend on how much they push their kid. Can’t watch a Harry Potter movie because it invokes witchcraft and dark magic? Rebellion. Can’t play anything as innocuous as Pokémon because of some bizarre religious taboo? Rebellion. Can’t hang out with certain friends because parents of those friends don’t go to the same church? Rebellion. Just being told every day that Nixon is the greatest, they are great because they are law abiding white people, and get sent to an all-white private school where they dick around and date rape girls to be groomed for the Supreme Court? Probably not gonna rebel.

ragnarokda

What's the context here? Because I remember seeing this pop up before and the guy was teaching his kid about propaganda or something.


june-bug-69

Prager University is a conservative YouTube channel that portrays themselves as “educational” while failing to stand up to fact-checks or provide reputable sources. They have many short videos which they dub “courses”, in which they push right-wing talking points. Sean McDowell over here is making his daughter intensely study many of their videos in order to “earn” shoes, something every person needs and that parents should be providing anyway. A quick look at his website and Twitter reveals he is *intensely* Christian, as well as a Christian apologist. He’s also written many books advocating for Christian teachings with a seemingly right-wing leaning like how to best oppose to gay marriage. I learned all that about him within about 5 minutes of research. I doubt he’s teaching his kids *about* propaganda rather than making them listen to it.


ragnarokda

Maybe it was another person who was having their kids use prageru videos to sort out misinformation. Thanks for the response! I just thought it'd be funny if they retweeted this guy but the guy was actually teaching his kid that prageru is shit.


june-bug-69

This guys ideas very much align with some of the propaganda pieces that Prager U puts out. Even the slightest bit of bothering to look into it demonstrates that pretty quickly.

yellow-snowslide

first of all: that parent is an idiot. i would not call this "child abuse" though. if i had a child i would want it to learn about politics too, and if it wanted some treat for it this would be a good motivation. of course only if she already had good shoes so my kid earns something they don't necessarily need. so i understand that the parent is trying to educate their children, it just sucks that they provide bullshit as a source and waste everybodys time


SylvySylvy

Actually I fully consider it to be abuse purely because it’s Prager U/ conservative media. You’re teaching the child to believe in things that will literally only ever hurt them and be maladjusted so they can only be friends with other wackos. It’s like Christians homeschooling their children not because public school isn’t working but because they want to make sure their child isn’t exposed to “alternate ideas.” My aunt is currently doing that shit which is why I feel so strongly about it.


yellow-snowslide

oh i fully agree that this action will hurt the kid in the future. the only benefit i can find is that idiots live in groups and the kid will have really dumb, yet loyal friends. i kinda expected to get downvoted to oblivion though :D

my parents tought me the great wall of china is visible from the moon. they were wrong about that. they tought it because they wanted me to get smarter and educate me. they believed this themselves. i don't think this is child abuse this women is teaching her kid absurd bullshit. she is wrong about this. she teaches this because she wants her kid to get smarter. she believes this. she is trying to give her child something, that she thinks is an important source of information. she is absolutly fucking wrong. but she is trying her best and abuse is the wrong term. imagine comparing the fate of an immigrant child in a cage with some brat karen offspring. and i don't get why i get downvoted for this. i agree with everyone here that the entire tweet was advanced dumb, i just don't think she is abusing the kid.

They apparently didn’t teach you spelling or grammar.

Even if you wouldn't call it child abuse, you can at least agree that it's fucked up. You should not force your children to learn a certain political ideology to "earn new shoes."

Oh yeah, i totally agree on that. I just assume that the kid already had shoes and wants a special expensive pair, that it doesn't necessarily need. I guess I didn't emphasize this enough
