Once upon a time, ‘binary’ was a mathematical term. Now it is an insult on a par with ‘racist’, ‘sexist’ or ‘homophobic’, to be deployed as a weapon in our culture wars. The enemy on this particular battleground is anyone who maintains that there are men and there are women, and that the difference between them is fundamental.
This ‘binary’ distinction is accepted as a given by the vast majority of the human race. No matter. It is now being categorized as a form of bigotry. It’s fast becoming an enforceable orthodoxy, with children and young people particularly in the frame for attitude reassignment.
Public school systems included gender identity in their classroom curriculum, including lessons on sexual fluidity and spectrum – the idea that there’s no such thing as 100 percent boys or 100 percent girls.
But while we have everything woke including our army, the world is watching us and use our weaknesses!
A video that surfaced recently shows how the Taliban train their children in boot camps high in the mountains!
Taliban forces in Afghanistan have added scores of children to their ranks since mid-2015 in violation of the international prohibition on the use of child soldiers, Human Rights Watch said today.
New Human Rights Watch research shows that the Taliban have been training and deploying children for various military operations including the production and planting of improvised explosive devices (IED). In Kunduz province, the Taliban have increasingly used madrasas, or Islamic religious schools, to provide military training to children between the ages of 13 and 17, many of whom have been deployed in combat
The Taliban recruit and train children in age-specific stages. Boys begin indoctrination as young as six years old, and continue to study religious subjects under Taliban teachers for up to seven years. According to relatives of boys recruited by the Taliban, by the time they are 13, Taliban-educated children have learned military skills including the use of firearms, and the production and deployment of IEDs. Taliban teachers then introduce those trained child soldiers to specific Taliban groups in that district.
The use of children to carry out terrorist attacks is not new. It’s not only the Taliban that trains their children!
The Islamic State has drawn attention with videos of children participating in firing squads and beheadings. The group’s propaganda videos and other publications make clear the role of children in the extremist organization is a norm and not just a shock factor.
Armies historically have used children as drummer boys and standard-bearers. The militant groups Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Gaza Strip teach children to hate Israelis and look forward to killing them. And like the Sri Lanka rebels, Tamil Tigers and various African and Colombian militias, groups fighting in Syria use children for spying, smuggling and combat.
The Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, goes even further in developing a system to recruit, indoctrinate and deploy children,
