About The Queering of the American Child

American children are learning a lot about sex, “gender,” and sexuality in their schools. District administrators, teachers, and even librarians are obsessed with pushing inappropriate topics onto kids, all in the name of fostering “inclusion.” Children today learn that they were “assigned a sex at birth” and can change their sex or “gender” at will. Kids are no longer learning to read, write, or do math, but they are learning how to be “radical gender” activists. Meanwhile, school districts keep parents in the dark, hiding critical information about the health and well-being of their children from them.

American education wasn’t like this forty years ago. The cult of Queer Theory changed everything. Inspired by the religious teachings of Michel Foucault, Judith Butler, and Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, Queer Activists “queered” American education. Schools are no longer teaching children how to flourish in society—they are initiating children into the cult of Queer Theory. Once initiated, children “experience the queer” as they adopt a new cult identity and embark on the destructive path of social and medical “transition.”

In this book, The Queering of the American Child, Logan Lancing and James Lindsay explain what Queer Theory is, where it comes from, how it got into schools, and what it’s doing to children nationwide. The cult of Queer Theory preys on children, and it must be understood if we are ever to stop the madness.

“Queer Theory is the distillation of the most toxic intellectual poisons of our age. If it were just the personal philosophy of a few eccentrics, we could ignore it. But, as Logan Lancing and James Lindsay show, it has all the marks of a cult whose adherents have access to most of our children—from inner-city public schools to the most expensive prep schools. If we want to defeat this cult and protect the next generation, we must inoculate our children against it. The Queering of the American Child will give you the medicine to do that. Read this book and take its lessons to heart—before it’s too late.”

"As someone who regrets being trans, I wish I had read this book before I went through the surgery and hormones. If I had understood how queer theory functions as a religious cult, I wouldn't have thought transition was a safe or effective way to treat my mental health issues."

"Lancing and Lindsay deftly expose the philosophy that pushes the indoctrination of children, and the separation of children from parents, in this terrifying but deeply necessary new book."

“Even as someone who is quite aware of what is happening, this book was still eye-opening for me. I swear, if everyone read this book, the whole trans debate would end instantly.”

The Queering of the American Child is a compelling must-read for every person scratching their head and wondering what on earth has happened to society in recent years. This book provides an incisive account of the devastating influence of Queer Theory both within pedagogy and psychology. If you want to understand Queer Theory and how it impacts, read
this book.”

"I really think this is an extremely important book. The Christian community is totally ignorant of the things it addresses. This book meets the need of the hour. If you have a pulse, you need to read this book.”

"The Queering of the American Child is one of the most honest, candid, and blunt treatments of the Queer Theory movement you will ever come across. With unmitigated courage and conviction, Lancing and Lindsay audaciously exposit the diabolical tenets that comprise the Queer Theory agenda in a way that leaves no ambiguity as to its injurious aims and designs for society’s children."

"Lancing's Queering of the American Child explains the genesis of queer theory and queer activism and how it has infiltrated so many institutions, from government, to our courts, and perhaps most worrisome, into the classrooms of our youth. His well sourced book should be a wake-up call to us all as this theory and their activists see queering our children as their moral duty, and will not rest until they've succeeded."

Jessica Graham

"The parallels discussed in this book between what’s happening in today’s schools and Marxists influenced writings from the past are made so clear and comprehensive. Everyone who wants to understand how we got here needs to read this book.”

"The Queering of the American Child is a book that needed to be written because the issues at stake are crucial ones. The authors have done their work well. Every parent, educator, and administrator needs to carefully consider what this book presents."

Alex Newman

Journalist, Educator, Author of 'Indoctrinating Our Children to Death'

"The Queering of the American Child is the most powerful and devastating examination to date of the dangerous cult that is brainwashing, recruiting, and mutilating American children by the millions. The evil agenda is laid bare on every page, along with the facts and evidence needed for parents and taxpayers to stop this monstrous movement in its tracks."

“Like getting a cancer diagnosis, this book is terrifyingly necessary. Queer activism is a fast-moving, widespread disease in the American school system. Unless it is decisively exposed and radiated, it will infect our kids and grandkids with devastating effects that will last for generations. This book is the radiation the whole system needs. No matter who you are, you need what it says. Give it to administrators and school board members. I hope it has the widest possible reading. The stakes are that
