CHRONICLES MAGAZINE — The other day I was sent an Instagram video of a little boy having story time on his mother’s lap. The little boy was precious, the time spent on his mother’s lap special, but the choice of reading material was… “woke.”

The selected story was The GayBCs by M. L. Web. “A is for Ally,” repeated the little boy, “B is for Bi, C is for Coming Out, D is for Drag.” His mother praises him after he finishes the book, asking, “Are you a ‘woke’ toddler?” Parroting her words, the little tot proudly proclaims, “I’m ‘woke.’”

The recent release of Renaissance Learning’s “What Kids are Reading” report underscores that educators and authors are now seeking to teach young children about “social equity issues, climate change,” and other political trends. As such, the report promotes “woke” titles like Black Brother, Black Brother, which deals with inequitable treatment people with different skin colors, and other books dealing with charged political issues such as immigration and gender identity, including Come On In: 15 Stories About Immigration and Finding Home and Trans Mission: My Quest to a Beard. […]

    A male inmate who identifies as female was transferred to the women’s prison and proceeded to rape a female inmate upon arrival, according to a whistleblower employee at the Washington Corrections Center for Women in Pierce County.

    What gets me is the tone of the article, which implies those responsible were surprised by this and are doing some head-scratching to decide what’s to be done — as if the obvious answer of not putting men in women’s prisons no matter what bullshit tales they tell about their ‘identity’ is not obvious enough for them.
