Makers of Masturbation “Education” Video for Children Promote Drag Queens, Gender Confusion

Makers of Masturbation “Education” Video for Children Promote Drag Queens, Gender Confusion

The source of a shocking sex education video that taught young children about masturbation as a form of “self-love” has been uncovered, as well as a stack of other equally disgusting videos.

As we reported earlier this week, a clip from a disturbing video teaching young children all about masturbation sparked outrage when shared on a social media account warning of the dangers of today’s pornographic sexual education programs. At the time, we were unable to find a source for the video, but CBN managed to track one down…and it’s far worse than we imagined.

Questioning LGBT/CSE Education@QuestionLGBTedu

Sexualising children with sex education.

Step 2: Now they are comfortable playing with genitals tell them how great it is to masturbate. How can they make it sound wholesome for kids? No one thinks love is unhealthy…

Embedded video

676 people are talking about this

According to CBN, the video is part of a series of teaching resources offered by Sex Ed School, a self-described “fun new web series for kids to get real info from experts and discover all the answers they want to know now.”

As it turns out, the clip in which two adults, now identified as Nadine Thornhill and Eva Bloom, encourage the children to masturbate in order to “show themselves love” is from a video titled “Love Is Love.” Other episodes include “Consent,” “Genitals,” “Puberty,” “Gender,” “Orientation,” “Kissing,” and “Digital Dos,” each of which can be watched on the Sex Ed School website.

Not surprisingly, the content of the rest of the videos is just as sickening and inappropriate for its 9-to-12-year-old target market as the gag-inducing “self-love” clip.

CBN reports:

When told that you can be who or whatever you identify with, Kaleb [the episode’s transgender, biologically female guest] asks the children about their identities (this interaction begins around the 3:00 mark).

“I’m a toilet,” one of the kids says, eliciting laughter from his peers. “I don’t believe toilet is a gender,” Kaleb instinctively answers, knowing it’s an absurd response. Kaleb quickly changes tune, however, when realizing woke culture does not allow outsiders to determine gender, and makes a correction. “But maybe it is for you,” Kaleb says, confirming to these impressionable young school children that if they want to identify as a toilet, that’s perfectly normal.

“Kaleb” went on to discuss her “transition,” including hormone therapy and surgery:

“It changed my voice and my body a little bit. I basically went through a second puberty when I was in my 20’s. I have to take [the hormone injection] every week… I did have my breasts removed. I have scars on my chest. I really only talk about what’s in my pants for people who are getting in there.”

Of course, no program for the sexual grooming of children would be complete without an appearance by half-naked drag queens, and Sex Ed School was happy to earn those extra “inclusivity” points.

In the video, “Faye Slift” and “Fluffy Soufflé,” a pair of bearded, flamboyantly-dressed drag queens notorious for “sharing their love of reading with kids”  discuss all manner of gender confusion.

To top it all off, Thornhill and Bloom, the two “experts” responsible for these abhorrent videos appear to have absolutely no credibility in the field of early childhood education. But they are well-educated in the ways of “sex-positive” nonsense and Planned Parenthood’s particular brand of “education.”

According to her website bio, Thornhill “got her start as a workshop facilitator at Venus Envy,” a sex toy store that she markets as “a sex-positive boutique.” From There, Thornhill reports that “she went on to become Program Director for Planned Parenthood Ottawa’s sex education drama troupe, Insight Theatre. A few years later, Nadine moved to San Francisco to study at The Institute For The Advanced Study Of Human Sexuality, earning a certification in Sex Education, followed by a Doctorate of Education.”

In case you are wondering if they really give out Doctorates of Education to sex eduactors, they don’t. The Institute For The Advanced Study Of Human Sexuality is an unaccredited establishment.

As for Bloom, she reportedly has a “Masters focusing on the social psychology of sexuality, with interests in technology, self-compassion, and sexual communication,” whatever any of that means.

“She is also the creator of the inclusive, evidence-based YouTube channel for young adults ‘What’s My Body Doing’, where she talks on sexual heath, sexuality, and relationships,” her Sex Ed School bio reads. “She is a winner of a Planned Parenthood Toronto’s Choice Award (2017) for excellence in sexuality education.”

In other words, both of these women basically took a few classes of dubious scientific merit on the topic of human sexuality, started making YouTube videos, and are now calling themselves “the foremost experts on child and adolescent sexuality.”

This is nothing but pure indoctrination and grooming masquerading as “sex-positive education.” Don’t think for a second that leftists in the education field aren’t fawning over this sort of garbage and plotting to add it to your children’s school curriculum.

The Scottish National Party’s leader – Nicola Sturgeon.

Neale Hanvey, who was a Scottish National Party (SNP) candidate, circulated an article from the Sputnik news agency.

The 2006 article mentioned George Soros, and was illustrated with an image showing world leaders as puppets.

Neale Hanvey has now been suspended by the SNP, for antisemitism.

Neale Hanvie had been due to contest the Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath constituency.

Labour has dropped its Falkirk candidate Safia Ali over alleged anti-Semitic posts on Facebook .

“A poll by ComRes surveyed 2,034 adults from November 25-26 and found Labour had risen two points to 34 percent of the vote. The Conservatives dipped by one point, to 41 percent, but remain seven points ahead.”


Not Rabbi Burns. 

Who controls Scotland?


Below, is what we wrote earlier –

The SNP (Scottish National Party) has made its first official visit to Israel.

The visit was led by depute leader Angus Robertson MP.

“Mr Robertson, the party’s Westminster leader, was accompanied on the week-long visit by Kirsten Oswald MP, whose constituency is home to more than half of Scotland’s Jewish community…”

In 2016 a group calling itself SNP Friends of Peace in the Middle East was established by a former Israeli soldier, Sammy Stein.

A leading member of the Scottish Jewish community last year called it “a front group for the interests of the Israeli government.”

Israeli embassy spies on Scottish National Party.

SNP activist Andy Murray was banned from entering Israel soon after meeting Israeli embassy agent Shai Masot.
Israel has many groups in Scotland.

Their job is apparently to spread disinformation.


Below is what we wrote in 2012:


It would appear that there is a cunning plan to give Scotland a sort of ‘fake’ independence.

The idea is that the Scots will be given as much independence as the North American Indians, the Australian Aborigines or the good people of Diego Garcia.

In the UK parliament, in 2012, Angus Robertson is the Scottish National Party leader and the spokesman on Foreign affairs and Defence.

(Angus Robertson is currently the Deputy Leader of the SNP)
He and his colleagues supported the ‘no-fly’ zone over Libya, which involved the bombing of Libya and the killing of civilians.
Herr Robertson
Robertson was born in London and his mother is German.
Robertson speaks fluent German. (Angus Robertson – Wikipedia)
He worked as a foreign and diplomatic correspondent in Central Europe for the BBC.
The BBC is believed to be run by MI6 and is believed to employ people from MI6 as foreign and diplomatic correspondents.
Robertson is a participant in the Parliamentary Armed Forces Scheme.
This gives Members of Parliament ‘experience of the armed forces’.
It is sponsored by arms manufacturers.
Robertson has confirmed that an ‘independent’ Scotland would join UN and Nato-led military operations abroad, if sanctioned by the UN.
Scottish National Party (SNP) sources say that the SNP is scrapping opposition to Nato membership.
An ‘independent’ Scotland could thus be a tool of the Pentagon.
Alex Salmond
SNP leader Alex Salmond is suggesting that an ‘independent’ Scotland would:
1. Keep sterling and the Bank of England as its central bank, by forming a currency union with the rest of the UK.
2. Keep the monarchy.
3. Keep the BBC as a Scottish broadcaster.
Military analysts believe an independent Scotland may have to retain Trident nuclear weapons as a price for defence co-operation with the UK.
So, an ‘independent’ Scotland would not really be independent.
Rupert Murdoch is supporting Salmond.
This explains why the SNP government in Edinburgh has:
1. Defended the guilty verdict in the ‘rigged’ Lockerbie trial
2. Appeared to be part of the cover-up in the Hollie Greig child-abuse case
3. Appeared to support the establishment of al Qaeda in Libya.
4. Appeared to turn a blind eye to CIA rendition flights.

“Andrew Lownie has published a book on Lord Mountbatten in which he interviewed several men who claimed to have been trafficked from Belfast – including from Kincora House – as young boys to the royal’s Classiebawn Castle in County Sligo in August 1977.”

Study shows there’s nothing wacky about conspiracy theorists

Researchers at The Australian National University (ANU) have delved into the world of online conspiracy theories, showing most of the people behind them are actually pretty ordinary.

The study looked at eight years of content, sifting through more than two billion comments posted on Reddit, including everything posted to the subreddit r/.

R/conspiracy covers everything from UFOs and 9/11, to political conspiracy theories like ‘pizzagate’, which took off during the 2016 US election campaign.

But despite the subject matter, lead author of the study Dr. Colin Klein says conspiracy theorists aren’t always a bunch of “crackpots wearing tinfoil hats”.

“In the past before the rise of online forums like Reddit, we tended to only hear about the most , and those people tended to naturally be wary about talking to someone else about their beliefs,” Dr. Klein said.

“These massive online forums paint a very different picture.

“The enormous set of comments we examined show many r/conspiracy users actually have more ‘sensible’ interests.

“For example conspiracy theories about police abuse of power are common. That’s not so crazy.

“These people might believe false things, but with good reason—because similar things have happened in the past.”

Professor Klein and his team also found that while there are subtle differences in the language used by those who end up posting on r/conspiracy, it’s not necessarily enough to set them apart from other Reddit users.

“You might find they talk more about power or power structures, but their language is not that different from what ordinarily goes on in a  like r/politics. You can’t distinguish them that way.

“It’s very easy to look at conspiracy theories and think they’re super wacky, and the people who believe in them are crazy, but it’s actually much more continuous with a lot of things we do every day.

“Low level theorising goes on a lot in , I’m inclined to think the stuff you see online is just a strong outgrowth of that.”

According to Dr. Klein, forums like r/conspiracy can also be driven by current events.

“For example, Reddit attracted a whole new set of users following the election of US President Donald Trump.

“He also generates quite a lot of in-fighting amongst users. This is what makes it such great way to study social dynamics.”

The data also reveals how people come to start posting on the r/conspiracy forum. The rise of Internet echo chambers is a factor—but there’s much more at play.

“We followed people who started using Reddit and posted for about six months before they ended up on r/conspiracy,” Dr. Klein said.

“You find two people who, for example, both started on the popular ‘ask me anything’ Reddit, and one ends up talking about conspiracies and one doesn’t.

“People who go on to post on r/conspiracy also tend to be over-represented in the political forums, but it’s not like they’re hyper-focused.

“This suggests a more active process where people are seeking out sympathetic communities. This process of finding like-minded people is something we see a lot of on the Internet.”

The research has been published in the journal PLOS ONE.

Girls helped by Duke of York’s charity ‘mistreated’, investigation reveals

Anna Mikhailova
A charity initiative set up by the Duke of York to help young women trafficked for sex in India has been embroiled in allegations of mistreatment, a Telegraph investigation has disclosed.

Prince Andrew, Duke of York visits the Showground on the final day of the 161st Great Yorkshire Show on July 11, 2019 in Harrogate, England. Organiser’s of the show this year have revealed that overall entries for the three-day show are higher than in any previous years © 2019 Getty Images Prince Andrew, Duke of York visits the Showground on the final day of the 161st Great Yorkshire Show on July 11, 2019 in Harrogate, England. Organiser’s of the show this year have revealed that overall entries for the three-day show are higher than in any previous years

The Duke started Key to Freedom in May 2012, soon after he was pictured walking with Jeffrey Epstein in Central Park, New York, following the paedophile billionaire’s release from prison.

He claimed it would financially “empower” vulnerable young women in India by selling their handmade fashion items in the UK through retailers including Topshop and the Buckingham Palace website.

However, the initiative soon fell into financial decline, and is now largely inactive, despite being highlighted by the Duke and his family as a success story throughout the scandal of his association with Epstein.
While the Duke’s team was setting up the project, its partner charity in India, the Women’s Interlink Foundation (WIF), which manages care homes for vulnerable children and young women, was being investigated by the Indian authorities.

Ten girls aged between 12 and 15 had run away from one of its two “Nijoloy” homes for trafficked and orphaned girls alleging that they were beaten by staff and generally mistreated.

WIF admits it did not tell the Duke about the investigation, which it says exonerated the care home.

But it refused to provide The Daily Telegraph with a copy of the official police report or its own internal report.

Asked to explain the incident, Aloka Mitra, WIF’s founder, said: “Some of them said we did not get the correct kind of chapatis.”

The revelation that WIF was being investigated suggests the Duke may have failed to conduct due diligence on his partner charity.

Key to Freedom also faces criticism that it gave false hope of financial security to the women making the hand-printed silk scarves, which were also sold online at the Royal Collection shop.

The Duke boasted that his key role was to provide “a route to market” for the fashion products and that his business connections led to the arrangement with Topshop, the retail chain owned by Sir Philip Green.

The Duke’s website also claims the initiative has “changed the fate of more than 100 vulnerable young women” and is still active.

But WIF confirms no scarves have been available to buy through retailers for more than 18 months and orders for tote bags, given to Princess Eugenie’s wedding guests last year and provided for the Duke’s Pitch@Palace projects, are “tiny”.

Sarajit Mitra, WIF’s chief operating officer and son of the founder, told The Telegraph that orders from Topshop declined after 2013 and stopped abruptly in June 2018 without any explanation from the Duke or his team, which he described as “rude”. He also claimed the Duke never suggested a replacement retailer.
“We are totally dependent on orders that are placed on us,” Mr Mitra said. “So if there’s no order placed on us, we have nothing to do … Over quite some time the quantity of orders tapered down quite significantly. The first tier was the big push and then kind  of over time has dropped down to small quantities.”

Despite this, in late August a royal source close to the Duke told The Sun he was “particularly dismayed” that his efforts to help victims of sex trafficking were being overlooked while his connections with Epstein once again hit headlines.

The Duke last week stepped down from his public roles over his friendship with the 66-year-old financier, who was found dead in prison in the US in August while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

Following the Duke’s trip to West Bengal in 2012, vulnerable young women of mixed ages became involved in producing accessories for Key to Freedom. Mr Mitra said they earned on average up to £150 per year – equivalent to 41p a day.

WIF confirms it took 40 per cent of sales of the scarves to cover the costs of running the project, such as materials and staff to train the girls. Mr Mitra said over three years the Duke ordered 1,500 tote bags at a cost of £2.50 each, of which the girls receive £1.50. The money is put into accounts for the workers, which cannot be accessed without permission from Mrs Mitra, a friend of the Yorks who attended Princess Eugenie’s wedding.

The women cannot leave the barbed wire compound without guards who accompany them on shopping trips to buy luxuries that are not covered by the money the state provides WIF for their general upkeep. WIF stresses that these security measures are to “provide protection to the vulnerable residents”.

A video promoting Key to Freedom shows girls dancing and looking happy in the Kolkata home. But a source from charity Action Aid said this is a “rosy picture” because the barbed wire on perimeter walls is excluded.

The Telegraph investigation also found some staff members had raised concerns about how WIF was treating some of the girls in its care, even before the collaboration with the Duke. In 2010, it is understood, managers were told about the alleged “mistreatment”. Concerns included insufficient and poor quality food, sometimes containing insects. Following the complaint, it is understood Mrs Mitra was given copies of letters written by girls who had lived in the home where they expressed their unhappiness. One letter alleges girls in the home are badly treated and “when the children want to complain, then they are told off and are asked to be quiet about it”.

The British High Commission in India was responsible for introducing the Duke to WIF. Mrs Mitra said Palace aides were in touch to discuss the initiative “less than an hour” after the Duke’s May 2012 visit and Amanda Thirsk, his private secretary, was “at the centre” of the Key to Freedom project. Mrs Thirsk was recently effectively sacked for advising the Duke to take part in his disastrous BBC Newsnight interview.

Sarah, Duchess of York, thought up the initiative’s name and within a month, the Duke’s charitable trust had donated £10,000 seed capital. The initiative launched formally in 2013, with an order from Topshop.

The Duchess was appointed a “visiting professor of Philanthreneurship” by Huddersfield University in recognition for her work with Key to Freedom.

The Duke’s spokesman declined to comment yesterday, as did Topshop, which was involved with the Key to Freedom project when Sir Phillip was facing down allegations of sexual and racial harassment of staff.

Last night, Mrs Mitra said the homes were monitored every month by officials and independent visitors through announced and unannounced visits.

She said the “allegations of ‘mistreatment’ of children are untrue” and at “no point were the girls maltreated and left without medical attention or food”.

Meanwhile, a Panorama programme featuring Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claims she had three sexual encounters with the Duke when she was 17, will now be an hour long, the BBC has said. The Prince and the Epstein Scandal will be screened on Monday at 9pm. The BBC declined to comment on the extension of the programme, originally scheduled to last 30 minutes.

The ‘scandal’ of Scotland’s longest gangland trial

Thurs 28th Nov 2019

When Paul Ferris was cleared of the gangland murder of crime boss Arthur Thompson Jnr in 1992 it came after what had been the longest and most costly trial in Scottish criminal history.

The cost of the court case was put at £4m and more than 300 witnesses were called to give evidence during the 54-day trial.

But journalist and crime writer Douglas Skelton tells the BBC’s The Scandals that Shocked Scotland there were so many people telling lies that it was difficult to get through to the truth. And the evidence of the main prosecution witness was so flawed the jury had no choice but to acquit.

“To have a trial of that length, to cost that amount of money and to have the evidence being presented being so weak, I think the only word you can use is scandal,” he says.

No-one has ever been found guilty of the gangland killing of the eldest son of the godfather of Glasgow’s biggest criminal clan outside his home in 1991.

Arthur Thompson was very much the old guard,” says Mr Skelton. “He’d come up in the 1940s and 50s. He was a friend of the Krays in London. He was very much the old-style kind of Glasgow criminal.”

Paul Ferris was a young man who had built a fearsome reputation that attracted the attention of Thompson.

According to BBC investigative journalist Sam Poling: “Paul Ferris was a well-known criminal. A violent man by his own admission. You have got to remember this man was feared around the country.”

In the early 80s, Ferris became part of Arthur Thompson’s gang and was known as an enforcer, someone who would threaten and, when necessary, mete out the violence.

Thompson’s eldest son, Arthur Jnr, also known as “Fat Boy”, was just a few years older than Ferris. He was rising up the ranks to take over from his father but didn’t command the respect that Arthur Snr had.

Ferris and Fat Boy worked together in the business but they had a falling out, Mr Skelton says.

“Paul Ferris blamed Arthur Thompson Jnr for essentially fitting him up on a charge which led to a conviction,” he says.

In August 1991, Arthur Thompson Jnr, who was serving an 11-year sentence for possessing heroin with intent to supply, was home on leave.

He was shot three times while walking the short distance from his own house to his parents’ home, which was two converted council houses in the city’s Blackhill area, known as the Ponderosa.

Ferris was the prime suspect but two others were incriminated. His pals Joe Hanlon and Bobby Glover did not live to stand trial. On the day of Arthur Thompson Jnr’s funeral, Glover and Hanlon were found dead in a car on the cortege route.

Paul Ferris, who was 28 at the time, was charged with murdering Thompson by shooting him in the head and body.

The trial began in March 1992.

Gang boss Arthur Thompson Snr was a key witness at the trial. The 61-year-old described himself as unemployed and said he had been claiming sickness benefit for two years.

Defence lawyer Donald Findlay said it might be suggested that Thompson orchestrated the killing of Hanlon and Glover in revenge for his son’s death.

Thompson replied angrily: “I would say I was on trial here the way you are going.” Looking at the dock, Thompson added: “That is the dock, this is the witness box.”

The main prosecution witness in the trial also proved to be controversial.

According to Mr Skelton the main point of evidence was from a man called Dennis Woodman, a “supergrass” who had given testimony in five or six other trials in England.

Woodman claimed he had been in a segregation unit in Barlinnie Prison with Ferris, who had confessed to the killing.

“They are in separate cells,” Mr Skelton said. “They can’t see each other. They can’t see outside. But according to the testimony, during this period of time, Paul Ferris confessed to killing Arthur Thompson Jnr.

“Paul Ferris was an experienced guy. I cannot believe that somebody like him would confess to a complete stranger who he can’t even see, by shouting out to him, without knowing who is standing outside his door, listening or recording what is being said.”

According to Mr Skelton, much of the other evidence had the jury scratching their heads. The trial was peppered with lies and half-truths, he says.

After 24 hours of deliberation, the jury acquitted Ferris of the murder and all other charges. On the steps of the court, he declared himself vindicated.

Mr Skelton says: “I think they reached the correct decision because the evidence just wasn’t there. If they really believed that Paul Ferris was guilty of murder then they should have got better evidence than they did.”

It is nearly 30 years since Arthur Thompson Jnr was shot and his murder case remains unsolved.

In 1998 Paul Ferris was sentenced to seven years for gun-running. He says he has now turned his back on a life of crime.
