(LifeSiteNews) – The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is promoting an “LGBTQ+” chat service for ages 13-19 to discuss topics such as sex and gender transitions that is designed to be quickly hidden from parents.

Q Chat Space, shared on the CDC’s LGBT Youth Resources page, is advertised as a forum where teens can join “live-chat, professionally facilitated, online support groups” that the site’s Instagram page shows include “gender affirmation surgeries,” “sex and relationships,” “drag culture,” and “anti-trans legislation.”

The chat is backed by Planned Parenthood, the website’s “About” page reveals.

Despite the mature chat themes — or rather, because of their maturity and sensitivity among teens — the site appears designed for quick concealment from parents. It features an ever-present green ribbon bordering the bottom of the Q Chat webpage that reads, “Click/tap here for a quick escape,” and directs to a Google search engine.

The site also shares an option for “discreet” text message reminders, Breitbart noted. The site explains, “Discreet text reminders are private, they do not include ‘Q Chat Space’ or the name of the chat.” They only say, for example, “Reminder: You have an online discussion in about 1 hour.”

One study of the program, published by the National Library of Medicine, even praised the forum for its facilitation of secrecy.

The authors note that “often, youth who are not out to their parents may hesitate to engage with in-person and Internet-based LGBTQ resources for fear that their parents will find out … ”

“The platform’s chat-based nature likely helps youth avoid concerns about family members accidentally overhearing their conversations in the same way they might if they were talking to friends.”

There are countless reasons to conclude modern sex-education is less about critical thinking and more about indoctrinating and sexualizing children at as young an age as possible.

Consider these 3 questions: 

  • Why are politicians around the world pushing radical transgender theories on children as young as 5? 
  • Why is the World Health Organization calling for 4 year-olds to be taught how to masturbate?
  • Why are children in schools being shown graphic images of sex and told anything goes so long as consent is established, if not to encourage our sons and daughters to become sexually active? 

A sane society would try to shield impressionable children from becoming sexualized, and encourage them not to watch pornography, take puberty blockers or mutilate their genitalia, but our schools increasingly promote these behaviors.

In reality, the media, most politicians, and many education chiefs are obliterating a parent's ability to protect their child's innocence and identity. 

We must realize: these elites want children to have THEIR values, not YOURS. SIGN THE PLEDGE!

The results of this explicit, inappropriate sex-saturated culture and education have been startling: there have never been more children claiming to be transgender, gay, lesbian and bisexual, nor have we ever seen such high levels of sexual assaults by minors.

Countless politicians, media personalities and education chiefs are too busy promoting woke trends to realize that sexualizing minors amounts to grooming, and has devastating consequences in many cases.

Children whose inhibitions are broken down risk addiction to pornography, teenage pregnancy, STDs, gender dysphoria, online shaming, and a whole host of other negative outcomes. 

Parents, not the government, must be in control of what their child is taught about sex.

Just listen to the type of materials public schools in the U.S. are promoting: 

That's why we are asking you to sign the Parents' Pledge that you will pull your children out of sex-education classes if your school chooses to sexualize your child.

The Parents' Pledge is our best chance of winning back our children's schools before they're entirely lost to radical sex-obsessed teachers' unions who are foisting these curricula on teachers.

Do you really want other adults deciding what your child is exposed to? Of course not.

Please share this brand new grassroots Parents' Pledge with like-minded parents and join a growing movement of mothers and fathers who are wise to the threat of their child being led into sexual activity.

One chat theme, “Finding Chosen Family,” underscores the forum’s emphasis on enabling separateness from parents. The idea of “choosing” a family other than one’s blood-relatives when one doesn’t feel accepted by them is a common theme among “queer” folks. WIRED featured five such “LGBTQ” people in a 2019 piece on how they “found their chosen family.”

Breitbart shared a revealing meme from the Q Chat Instagram page that highlights the potentially massive impact of such a forum. It portrays “learning about queerness” as a Trojan Horse for “realizing I’m queer.”

The Q Chat’s controversial topics are not limited to LGBTQ discussions. The site has also promoted astrology and according to Breitbart, had a “Queering Tarot” discussion, referring to the Tarot Cards “commonly used in occult practices.”

Breitbart reported in May that the Q Chat was promoted by the Arizona Department of Education.
