Queer Kid Stuff, created by Lindsay Amer, is a YouTube series designed to teach children about gender, sexuality, and race in addition to the privileges associated with them. According to Amer, the target demographic is children ages 3 to 7 years old. Supporters of the channel claim that children should be taught tolerance at an early age. However, there has been abundant criticism of the series, claiming that much of the content is feminist propaganda, and there is also concern about the age of the target audience.
Is it appropriate to discuss transgenderism and sexuality with young children?
Although young children should be taught tolerance, it is inappropriate to discuss sexuality with an audience that is incapable of understanding sexual attraction. In terms of transgenderism, there is substantial evidence to suggest that young children should not physically transition. For instance, two-thirds of youth who identify as transgender rescind their gender identity as they grow older, according to an Amsterdam study. In fact, David Barry found that among all people (adults included) who have underwent gender reassignment surgery, up to 20% regret their decision.
Is the channel feminist propaganda?
Lindsay Amer spreads popular feminist theories such as gender being a social construct, women being paid less than men for the same work, privilege being based on immutable characteristics, and nonbinary genders being valid. Her sidekick, Teddy, even uses they/them pronouns and identifies as nonbinary. In fact, Amer recently came out as also being gender nonbinary. Regardless of your opinion on these issues, do your child a favor and let them be kids.
