Last year, the Philadelphia School District invited teachers to participate in a conference on “fetish”, “sadomasochism”, “trans sex” and “fucks beyond binaries”.

At the beginning of July , the district’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion has sent out invitations to the Philadelphia Trans Welfare Conference to faculty and staff on the mailing list. 369171424SDP Connect , promoting the conference as a way to “learn more about the issues facing the trans community”. The conference was hosted by Centro Mazzoni, an LGBTQ activism organization that has worked with the district on sex education programs. (Contacted for comment, the Philadelphia School District described its promotion of the conference as part of its commitment to “creating equitable and inclusive environments” and said it had “no information” on the number of teachers who attended the event. Mazzoni did not return contact.)

I got videos from a public website that show the conference went well beyond the school district’s euphemism about “issues facing the trans community.” The event included sessions on topics such as “The Adolescent Journey: Preparing Youth for Gender Affirmative Care” [N. do T.: Cuidado afirmativo ou afirmação de gênero é aceitar a autoidentificação de supostos transexuais sem grande questionamento, com frequência dando-lhes hormônios do sexo oposto. Não é o tratamento para todos os casos, especialmente se forem manifestados na infância], “369171424Bigger Dick Energy: The Post-Masculinization Life [Via Cirurgia de Redesignação de Gênero]” [N. do T.: Cuidado afirmativo ou afirmação de gênero é aceitar a autoidentificação de supostos transexuais sem grande questionamento, com frequência dando-lhes hormônios do sexo oposto. Não é o tratamento para todos os casos, especialmente se forem manifestados na infância] , “Prostheses for sex”, “The Come and Go of Masturbating Gloves” and “Trans sex: sex beyond the binaries”. Speakers included educators, activists, adults and teenagers. There were explicit sessions on prosthetic penises, masturbation toys and artificial ejaculation devices that some speakers openly promoted to minors. As one session speaker explained, “there is no age limit, because I feel that everyone should be able to access certain information.”

The conference began with presentations promoting puberty blockers, hormone treatments, breast removal and genital surgery. In a session, “The Adolescent Journey: Preparing Youth for Gender-Affirmative Care,” Dr. Scott Moser, director of the San Francisco Gender Confirmation Center, explained that he has performed “more than 2,000 torso surgeries” that involve removing girls’ breasts, and that there is no age limit for starting the “gender journey.” “I don’t use a minimum age of any kind in my work,” he said, explaining that he is willing to consult with children as young as ten with parental consent. In another session open to children, “Gender Affirming Male and Feminizing Hormones for Teens and Adults,” Dane Menkin, regional director of LGBTQ services at the Main Line Health clinic, gave an endorsement for a range of treatments ranging from puberty to tighten her breasts with tissue to “masculinize” teenage girls. “I strongly encourage you to squeeze for as many hours a day as you are able to tolerate,” he said.

Other presentations at the Trans Welfare Conference involved explicit sexual themes. Two trans activists who transitioned from female to male, Kofi Opam, a graduate student at the University of Iowa, and Sami Brussels, who does medical illustration, gave a headline presentation “369171424Bigger Dick Energy” in which explained the process of phalloplasty [cirurgia que cria uma emulação de pênis] and the use of an artificial penis to “navigate through sex life that involves encounters with strangers and casual/anonymous sex”. Chase Ross, transgender activist and YouTuber, hosted a series of sessions on “

packers” [pênis de silicone usados para fazer volume na roupa de baixo], “masturbating gloves” and “sex prostheses”, showing various objects from his collection of more of 380 genital prostheses. “I’ve tested and touched many—prosthetics, really, many. This is one that gives the most realistic feel of the inside of a penis,” he said during a demonstration. “It’s a big one, this one is, like, giant. OK, give me two hours alone and I’ll put it on my ass,” he said during another session.

The most extreme presentation at the three-day conference was “Trans sex: sex beyond binaries”. Jamie Joy, who calls herself a “fetishist”, “polyamorous”, “a big bitch” and Lucie Fielding, who calls herself “white, queer, fetishist, polyamorous, visibly non-disabled, Jewish, half-witch, nonbinary and transfemale” led the session. The two led a presentation on politically correct language for anatomy, including terms such as “front hole” and “back hole”, and shared personal information on how to organize orgies for the bacchae to “exploit their fantasies and perversions in group”. The instructors later discussed various fetish activities [“kink”], including doggie outfit fetishes, Mary Poppins, and tapas. “I haven’t explored my mom fetish much yet. And I think tonight I want to feel like I’m being pampered, but also a little punished,” Joy said.

It is important to remember that this conference is not an isolated case. The Mazzoni Center, which organized it, received more than $5 million in government contracts last year and runs sexuality programs in schools across the region. The School District of Philadelphia partners with the center on sexual health research and student sex education programs, and the district’s director of faculty leadership, Amy Summa, is on Mazzoni’s board of directors. Despite the school district’s euphemisms about “well-being” and “self-esteem,” the content of the conference reveals a theory-infused sexual ideology 369171424queer radical, not common sense sex education. Parents and taxpayers should ask why the district’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion has invited teachers to participate in such a schedule.
