LANSING, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – The National Education Association (NEA), the largest teachers’ union in the country which includes a chapter in Michigan, is promoting an “I’m Here” badge to virtue signal to others that “you are a safe person to discuss LGBTQ+ issues.”

According to its website, the NEA went on to say, “Affirming LGBTQ+ youth couldn’t be easier than by identifying yourself as a safe and supportive person.”

In addition, the minor-attracted crowd has not gained traction in the establishment media, but there are groups committed to its legitimacy.  One commentor brought this to light.

“It’s because the pedophiles are running the show. They want to group themselves with the lgbtq+ as ‘minor attracted’ rather than pedophiles. Evil, in its most purest form, exists and propagates on the failures of man who then allow its true intentions to hide behind the veil of benevolence and security. All about creating normalized behavior.”
