According to a new story in Campus Reform, an Art Institute of Chicago professor now thinks that K-12 teachers should be using art classes to help kids transition from straight to gay.
“We can, and perhaps should, help our kids turn out queer,” Adam Greteman wrote in an article for the Journal of Studies in Art Education. The title of the piece, in case you haven’t received this month’s edition yet, is “Helping Kids Turns Out Queer: Queer Theory in Art Education.”
You’re probably thinking, Well, there’s got to be some other explanation. This fool can’t really be making a serious argument that we should teach children to be gay, can he? That’s like…that’s like the worst kind of repressive Christian propaganda. That’s like…that’s something you would read in some kind of 1980s conservative playbook – oh, they’re putting gay juice in the water, hide your kids, hide your families!
But perhaps this is an illustration of how, no matter how outlandish the claims are when it comes to the “progressive” left, they can never actually capture the sheer lunacy that pervades this sick ideology. There will always come a day when even the most far-right conspiracy theorist is justified in saying, “Yeah, I told you so.” Because despite the improbability of it all, that’s EXACTLY what Professor Greteman is arguing.
“This article explores the possibilities of queer theory in art education, and I playfully, perhaps provocatively, ask how art education can help kids turn out queer,” he wrote in the journal. He said that because most K-12 schools are awash in – ugh – “heteronormative realities,” art teachers would do well to embrace a “queerer agenda” that could help some students find the gay selves they might have otherwise overlooked.
While Greteman tried to pass off his definition of “queer” as some kind of vague non-sexual way of looking at the world when confronted by Campus Reform, both his article and his biography make it plainly obvious that this has nothing to do with “opening one’s mind” and everything to do with teaching kids that gay sex is totally awesome.
“Queerness and its attention to sex may seem inappropriate, but sex is still a core component of the human experience—an experience that visual culture addressed and has attended to for some time—and one that schools cannot deny,” he wrote.
It just goes to show you that no matter how ridiculous and evil you think the leftist/LGBT agenda is on the surface, it is way worse when you dig around in the seedy underbelly. And now many of those seeds are growing into flowering, mainstream trees, just in time to put the finishing touches on our great American forest of insanity.
