Just when you think this bat guano insane world we live in couldn’t possibly spiral any further down the rabbit hole than it’s already gone, some wacky progressives come along and find new ways to take crazy to a whole new level.
We’re all well aware that the government’s super power is wasting money on ridiculous things, particularly useless studies that do nothing to further advance our nation, our prosperity, or the common good of mankind.
The aforementioned nuttiness has finally reached a point where it goes beyond strange and unusual ideas and has now crossed over to becoming the expression of these ideas in a rather expensive study that is horrifically stupid.
The federal government is tossing out a grant to an organization conducting a study to ask four-year-olds about their “internal sense of gender identity.”
Go ahead and take a few seconds to laugh out loud about the lunacy of such a statement. Now grab a handful of tissues as the realization that this is legit and not some “fake news” headline sinks in your brain box.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, your hard earned tax dollars are getting an all expenses paid trip from your pocket to the toilet to help fund research that will help liberals find new ways to psychologically and emotionally assault children with their transgender agenda.
If only this were make believe.

A federal agency is funding a two-year study being done by the University of Washington on “internal sense of gender identity” among children aged 4 to 6.
The National Science Foundation has awarded a grant of $138,000 for the study, which involves interviewing 250 children aged 4 to 6, and their parents, on “gendered behavior,” says the agency which was created by Congress in 1950 “to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare” among other things.
“Prominent theories of gender development have discussed the degree to which gender identity results from an internal sense of gender and socialization processes,” NSF says. “However, tests of these theories have been limited because, for most children, internal gender identity and environmental socialization substantially overlap, rendering it impossible to distinguish the relative impact of each factor on gender development.”
The agency calls the project, which is scheduled to complete in June 2019, “a critical test of extant theory by examining gender development among children with atypical patterns of gender development.”
“Specifically, this grant supports the investigation of whether established theories (e.g., social learning theory, social cognitive theory, gender schema theory) can account for a wider range of human gender experiences,” it adds.
The gender schema theory proposes that children learn what it means to be male or female from the culture in which they live.
Oh really? Boys and girls only learn how to behave like boys and girls based on culture, huh? So there’s no inherent design that makes boys act like dudes and girls act like ladies that comes from the brilliantly complex mind of a Creator?
Yeah, not buying that.
If that’s the case, why are the overwhelming majority of boys so prone to aggression and a desire for competition almost from the moment they are born? What? That has nothing to do with the testosterone flowing in their veins? I beg to differ.
God has a design for men and women, who together, compliment the task of taking dominion over the world per the cultural mandate direct from the Lord, perfectly.
It’s egregious to see this sort of stuff pushed off on kids, which is a big no-no as it undermines the authority of parents who may not want their kid to learn about this stuff from strangers, especially folks conducting a study.
Yeah, that’s pretty awful. But what makes this whole thing even worse is the fact they are wasting our tax dollars on this shenanigans and we have absolutely no say in the matter.
It’s well past time for Congress to be held accountable for the way they spend money. Hopefully one day they’ll get the picture.
