Wise parents try to keep their kids from being influenced by the lies in our culture. That often means not taking them to certain movies, not letting them watch certain shows, play certain games, or listen to certain music. And we have to keep an eye on their friends too. It can be exhausting.

Still, there comes a point—and we are here—when the world around us is so saturated with false messages that ignoring them and hoping they will go away is not only impossible. It’s perilous.

A number of recent stories drives this point home. This week reports surfaced that Disney plans to out the lead character in its enormously popular “Frozen” movies as lesbian. Now, I’m not the kind of guy who spends time browsing Disney princess rumor websites, but if it does happen—and let’s get real, something like this is inevitable—anyone with a daughter knows it’ll be impossible to keep her from finding out. She’s going to hear about it, even if you never let her see the movie.

What’s the dangerous thing to do? Ignore it and hope she doesn’t notice.

Here’s another thing many hope to ignore: the redefinition of words. Last month, America’s oldest dictionary announced it’s now acceptable English to use the plural pronoun “they” as a gender-neutral singular pronoun: as in, “Bill told me they doesn’t identify as male or female.” If you think changes to language aren’t that big of a deal, you may need to re-read “1984.”

Last but not least, Barbie-maker Mattel has introduced a new line of gender- neutral dolls, complete with androgynous bodies and faces, plus mix-and- match hair and clothes. Oh, for the days when the only kid swapping toy parts was Sid from “Toy Story.”

As one senior vice-president explained, this new doll line is “designed to keep labels out and invite everyone in,” because apparently, “kids don’t want their toys dictated by gender norms.”

I’ve got to wonder who did Mattel’s market research. As I predicted last weekend on our BreakPoint this Week podcast, anyone with sons knows just how quickly these non-gendered toys will be gendered. The boys will send them into combat against supervillains or space aliens, and the girls will turn them into families. One of my colleagues recently wrote a column describing how his daughter tucks her brother’s toy trucks into bed. Children have to be talked out of what they innately know about gender identity.

And make no mistake, the companies behind these toys, dictionaries, and movies are doing an awful lot of talking. Perhaps a better way to describe it is as catechesis. The constant repetition of lies—through everyday cultural artifacts such as movies, language, and even toys—has now reached a religious pitch.

We may hope our kids won’t notice that Elsa has a girlfriend, or that Barbie isn’t gendered, or that pronouns are being used in bizarre new ways, but that’s the problem. If they don’t notice, it may be because these wrong ideas seem quite normal to them.

You see, culture is most powerful not where it’s loud and in-your-face, but where it’s quiet and assuming. We’ve experienced these shifts in culture. Our kids haven’t. So, the abnormal becomes normal without any arguments even being made. We might find that, before we have even taken the time to point out the lies to our kids and counter them, they’ve already accepted them as normal.

The right response to the cultural catechism all around us is a catechism of our own. As an Anglican, I mean that literally. Teach them the truths of the faith—including God’s design of male and female—with the same dedication and persistence (and hopefully before) the culture does in teaching lies.

Instead of ignoring the stuff in movies, commercials, television, and music, and hoping it goes over their heads, take the time to point it out and discuss it with your son or daughter in an age-appropriate way. Help them to understand they’re being sold more than toys and entertainment. They’re being sold a false worldview.

The best defense against a false worldview is to notice it, and to expose it for what it is.

The Left are grand masters of weaponizing language. We see it repeatedly. And they have their allies in academia, libmedia, Hollyweird, the courts, and Dems.

A good example in NYC very recently.

HotAir: More NYC protections for illegal aliens, 10/7/19
You may recall that New York City recently implemented new rules put forward by the Commission on Human Rights making it illegal to call an illegal alien an illegal alien. (With hefty fines of up to a quarter-million dollars for those who disobey.) As it turns out, however, that was only the opening act. The Hill has been digging into the new rules and found even more that should leave most sane people with their jaws hanging open.

Many of these apply to employers, making sure that they don’t make it too difficult for illegals to get a job (in violation of federal law). And if you do anything that might help ICE agents identify and detain an illegal alien, you’ll probably be in hot water as well.

The NYC Commission on Human Rights (Commission) has announced new guidelines for New York’s Human Rights Law that will make it easier for undocumented aliens to live and work in New York without being detected by immigration authorities.

The guidelines designate conduct that facilitates immigration enforcement or makes it harder for undocumented aliens to remain in New York as “unlawful discrimination,” and the Human Rights Law has steep penalties to deter New Yorkers from doing these things…

But the guidelines in fact go much further. They violate the constitutional rights of lawful New York residents in order to protect undocumented alien residents. What’s more, making it easier for undocumented aliens to live and work in New York illegally is prohibited by a federal harboring provision that makes providing such assistance a criminal offense.

I used to believe that marijuana laws were the only cases where state (or municipal) laws conflicted wildly with federal laws, but we may have found another example. The laws impacting employers appear to be some of the most egregious.

For example, if someone comes to your office to apply for a job and brings the correct number of identifying documents accepted by the city (including a utility bill or bank statement), you are forbidden from asking any additional questions about their citizenship status or probing further. It turns out that E-Verify isn’t mandatory in New York State (big surprise), but employers aren’t forbidden to use it. But if your new applicant has turned over the documents and you run them through E-Verify just to be on the safe side, you might wind up running afoul of these new rules.

Just for the record, illegal aliens in New York City are allowed to get a city identification card and can easily get a utility bill or other accepted documents. But it’s also a felony to hire illegals. Fun times, eh?

If you happen to be a landlord or a person selling their home in the Big Apple, be careful. You can’t refuse to rent or sell based on the prospective renter or buyer being in the country illegally. That will lead to crippling fines as well.

...

I assume it will now be illegal for judges in NYC to use the words 'illegal alien' in court when quoting very old laws. Imagine how judges and attorneys can be attacked and fined for simply reading the words of statutes in place for many generations.

Going from selective obedience to the law to now outright ignoring the law. Who would have thought this would happen especially in NY.

For the Commie Libs the laws of this land are only convenient when they want to charge Trump with something.

The word "laws" is essentially being redefined to mean "things that Republicans can be prosecuted for".
