According to records obtained by the City Journal, a children's hospital in Chicago formed a partnership with local schools to promote gender affirming goods and toys that encourage sexual activity.
According to the documentation from the hospital, the Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago collaborated with four different school districts in order to promote gender diversity. These school districts are: District 75, District 120, District 181, and District 204. The hospital promoted a "LGBTQ sex shop for teens" to the schools as part of the "Beyond Binary" curriculum. The shop sells a variety of sex toys, such as dildos, vibrators, harnesses, and anal toys.
A "Binder exchange program" was also promoted during the presentation. This program offers free chest binders to biological women who cannot afford them in order to assist them with their transition, provided that their "chest causes them gender dysphoria." The documents from the hospital showed that this program exists. The hospital supplied information on a free binder exchange program for the youth, which are mailed out every January, April, July, and October. This material was intended for younger children.
According to the hospital lecture, another resource was a "kid friendly website" that sold gender affirming equipment such as "stand to pee" gadgets, "packers" and "packer holders," and "trans-masc pumps." A piece published in Teen Vogue titled "How To Have Sex If You're Queer" was another piece that the hospital promoted.
The hospital also offers a model school policy, which encourages schools to let kids room on overnight trips with whoever their gender identification best fits with. This policy is included in the hospital's provision of the example school policy. The policy instructs school districts that they are not legally compelled to tell parents a student's pronouns and name unless the student advises the school district to do so. If the student does not advise the school district to do so, the policy remains in effect.
In the presentation given by the hospital, "genderqueer," "transfeminine," and "transmasculine" identities were all discussed in relation to the "transgender umbrella." One of the provided activities gets students and teachers to practice using the pronouns they and them while also having them apologize if they make a mistake.
The Daily Caller News Foundation's request for comment was not immediately met with a response from the Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, District 75, District 120, District 181, or District 204.
