Chicago’s largest children’s hospital has partnered with local school districts to promote radical gender theory, “kink,” “BDSM” and “trans-friendly” sex toys for children.
I have obtained insider documents that reveal this troubling collaboration between gender activists at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago and Chicago-area school administrators. According to these documents and a review of school district websites, Lurie Children’s Hospital has provided material to principals promoting radical gender theory, trans activism, and sexually explicit material in at least four Chicago-area public school systems: District 75, District 120, District 181, and District 204. According to a whistleblower, these materials were distributed to middle and high school administrators, teachers, and other staff as part of ongoing employee training programs.
The main training document, “Beyond the Binary: Gender in Schools,” follows the basic narrative of queer academic theory: Western white society has created an oppressive gender binary, falsely dividing the world into gender categories. between men and women, resulting in “transphobia”, “cissexism” and “systemic discrimination” against racial and sexual minorities.
Versions of the document have been attributed to Jennifer Leininger, Lurie’s associate director of community programs and initiatives, and Hadeis Safi, a “non-binary” gender activist who uses “them/them” pronouns and works for the LGBTQ agenda and the hospital’s gender inclusion program, which advertises its care for children with “gender expansive” identities and offers “gender-affirming” medical procedures, including puberty blockers for children.

The presentation encourages teachers and school administrators to support “gender diversity” in their districts, automatically “affirm” students who announce gender transitions, and “communicate a non-binary understanding of gender” to children in classrooms. class. The goal, as one version of the presentation suggests, is to disrupt the ” [gender] norms of Western society” and facilitate the transition to a more “gender-creating” world.
In at least two districts, activists at Lurie Children’s Hospital also recommended that teachers provide a range of sexually explicit resources to children as young as 11 years old.
At the end of the “Beyond Binary” presentation distributed to teachers in Districts 75 and 120, the hospital recommended a “Binder Swap Program” to help teenage girls bind their breasts, a “kid-friendly website for gender affirmation gear,” which sells items like artificial penis “packers” and female-to-male “trans masc pumps”[s]and an “LGBTQ-friendly teen sex shop” that sells a range of “dildos,” “vibrators,” “harnesses,” “anal toys,” “trans-friendly toys,” and “kink & BDSM” gear. the links include graphic depictions of sadomasochism, bondage, pornography, and transgressive sex.
RADICAL GENDER THEORY HAS NOW CRAFTED INTO MORE THAN 4,000 AMERICAN SCHOOLS
In addition to these gender theory documents, Lurie Children’s Hospital has also publicly released a policy guide for school administrators, encouraging districts to take a “gender-affirming approach” to the curriculum; providing “gender-affirming children’s books” in school libraries; and allowing students to participate in sporting events, use restrooms and locker rooms, and sleep in bunks during nighttime school trips based on their “gender identity,” rather than their biological sex.
These documents reveal a deeply troubling collusion between radical gender activists in the medical system and the public school bureaucracy.
The hospital also encourages school districts to appoint special “gender support coordinators” to help facilitate children’s sex and gender transitions, which, under the recommended “confidentiality” policy, may be kept secret for parents and families. “District staff shall not disclose a student’s transgender identity,” the policy states.

“Before contacting the parent(s)/guardian(s) of a transgender or gender non-conforming student, district staff should ask the student what name and pronouns they would like school officials to school use in communications with parents.”
Beyond the sinister nature of some of the content, these documents reveal a deeply troubling collusion between radical gender activists in the medical system and the public school bureaucracy. They whitewashed the promotion of queer theory, synthetic gender identities and child sex toys under the guise of “health and education,” devoting significant resources to building what political analyst Leor Sapir called a school-to-clinic pipeline.

The process is simple: Children discover and adopt “gender expansive” identities in schools, which then direct them to gender clinics that can provide puberty blockers, hormone therapies, surgeries and drug regimens that total often hundreds of thousands of dollars in dollars. costs over time.
A cynical interpretation of this pipeline would suggest that it is profit driven. But another current is ideological: radical gender activists believe they are in a struggle for liberation from the system of “cisheteropatriarchy” – and every “gender nonconforming” child is another tool in that struggle.
