CDC’s LGBT Youth Resources Promotes ‘Q Chat Space’

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has set up an “LGBT Youth Resources” webpage in which it promotes a live group chat site for teens to learn more about changing their biological sex, transgender activism, drag, and divergent sexual relationships.

The platform, Q Chat Space, is directed at teens ages 13 to 19 and features adult “facilitators,’ not necessarily licensed mental health professionals. The CDC does issue a disclaimer before someone is directed to the site stating it does not endorse the non-federal website and can’t attest to accuracy, privacy protection, or Section 508 compliance or the Rehabilitation Act.

Teens are incentivized to gain status on the site by becoming “Q Chatters” who commit to participating in at least one chat a week for a year.

Government and Child Abuse

Gabriela Eyal is a clinical psychologist who evaluated more than 1,000 children enrolled in Head Start, a school readiness federal program available to low-income youth and she also worked with Child Protective Services.

Eyal said in these interviews and encounters with children, she saw only a handful of cases of children confused by their sex. If it occurred, it was typically associated with unsafe homes, not a natural, regular occurrence.

“I’ve seen so many children in terrible situations and now the State is doing this to children,” Eyal said. “It’s terrible. When you’ve worked with CPS you feel so strongly for the children.”

Encouraging gender confusion is going to result in a significant mental health crisis in the future, said Eyal. “[Children] get confused and stay confused until they are in their twenties and then, they fall apart. In 10 to 15-year-olds, it will do terrible damage. People need to have a cohesive sense of self.”

Government by Idealogues

President Biden has been committed to the LGBT issue. He appointed Rachel Levine, a transgender woman who was born a male, as his Assistant Secretary for Health and Human Services. On the day he was sworn in as President, he issued an executive order, regarding “discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation.”

The order states, “Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports.”

Gender ideologues have captured federal agencies, says Jay P. Greene, a senior fellow at The Heritage Foundation’s Center for Education Policy. “These ideologues dismiss the physical body, and the value of physical evidence, in favor of a purely subjective, and internal, sense of ‘gender identity.’ How many kids will have to suffer lifelong bodily and psychological damage before our federal institutions rethink their enthusiasm for gender ideology?”

  1. homophobic rhetoric and dangerous objectification of children. Ashley Batemen has great potential for writing on important issues, but she instead involves herself in an abusive framework of misinformed education policy. Praying for you!
