“Parents who believe their household media safeguards are firmly in place can still be stunned about what their kids figure out a way to watch. Pivotal corrupting moments often occur in your child’s bedroom when you are asleep or out at a meeting. Or it happens at the home of your child’s friend—that new companion who seemed so wholesome when you first met her. Your sweet child may come home, however, a transformed person.”
(Linda Harvey – Mission: America) A 13-year-old girl spends hours watching poison on YouTube. The dream of every parent? Hardly.
But many parents don’t see the unfolding tragedy until it’s too late.
It’s true that educational videos can be helpful and many families deeply appreciate those that guide kids through algebra, the geography of Africa or conversational Spanish.
But there’s another kind of online education, one producing horrific outcomes, including early (sometimes deviant) sexual activity. Other results are reflected in abortion statistics, criminal cases—and in honest obituaries.
At tender ages, our children are taught, via video, to proudly engage in masturbation or to accept abortion (Netflix show Big Mouth). Planned Parenthood features an outrageous YouTube where teens advocate sexual activity to their peers, and in another, they’ll learn the pleasure and “safety” of sado-masochism.
Kids can also binge on suicide ideation (Netflix’ 13 Reasons Why, alreadyimplicated in several real life teen suicides). Then there’s witchcraft, sorcery and satanism readily available in video after video, not to mention popular TV shows like Netflix’ revived Sabrina and CW’s Charmed.
The online sensation “Slenderman”was the obsession of two middle school girls just arrested at a FL middle school as they plotted a satanic mass murder of classmates.
And then there are YouTube videos featuring teens who have “transitioned” to the opposite sex. Who watches these? All kinds of adolescents, and the impact is apparently powerful.
Reports in both the U.S. and the UK reveal the disastrous impact of binging on gender rebellion videos combined with peer advocacy. The most vulnerable teens, especially those with “progressive” friends, can develop a desire for gender identity change in what is being called “sudden onset gender dysphoria.”
Numerous TV and online videos highlight the “journey” of girls prescribed testosterone to create a new male identity. Your son can learn the benefits of reinventing himself as a girl.
For instance, the saga of “Emmie” Smith on YouTube was produced by National Geographic. The title, “Follow a Transgender Teen’s Emotional Journey to Womanhood” falsely promises the questioning teen that yes, a person can completely wipe out biological history and start over.
