Cartoon Network, a popular cable channel among children, took to Twitter last week to encourage its young fans to learn and celebrate “gender identities” and customized gender pronouns.
“Here’s to not only normalizing gender pronouns, but respecting them, too,” the network tweeted, sharing a “gender justice” toolkit to indoctrinate children with gender theory ideology. “Whether you use he/she/them or something else, we acknowledge and LOVE you!”

The toolkit, created alongside the National Black Justice Coalition, used characters from Cartoon Network’s ‘Steven Universe’ to teach about gender identities.
“Gender pronouns describe a person’s gender identity,” reads one image in the tweet. “Examples of pronouns are she/her, they/them, and ze/zir. A lot of people are learning about gender identity. If you’re comfortable, you can share your own pronouns.”
In another image, two characters explain “pronouns” to another character.
“Hi! My name is Kam. My pronouns are they/them,” says one, to which the other adds, “I’m Alex! Mine are they/them, too! I feel seen.”
“Thanks, y’all!” Kam adds. “When people use my pronouns, I feel respected, safe, and included.”
“Yes!” says the character who received the lecture. “Your pronouns reflect … you! I’ve learned something new today!”
A description of the “gender justice toolkit” from the NBJC explains the campaign to promote pronouns:
Language is often a reflection of culture, and when unchecked, can be used to perpetuate violence and oppression. Words have the power to reinforce stereotypes, marginalize the most vulnerable among us, and support harmful ideas about race, gender, sexual orientation and gender identity, socioeconomic status, and other factors. Language also has the power to be a revolutionary tool in dismantling existing power structures. Language has the capacity to liberate and empower.
The toolkit “designed to facilitate uncomfortable and, at times, difficult conversations that can save lives,” NBJC continues. “This specific toolkit has been designed with the goal of ensuring gender justice in mind, which means ending the violence that black women and girls — both cisgender and transgender, as well as gender non-conforming people — experience simply as a result of who they are and how they exist in the world.”
As we’ve previously reported, this is far from the first time Cartoon Network has dabbled in gender theory indoctrination for children, especially with its ‘Steven Universe’ show.
A clip from the show made waves on social media earlier this year, featuring a character—showing off her own social media account—revealing her “intersex/nonbinary” identity.
The profile page belonging to the character, called “Stevonnie,” reads, “Intersex, non-binary, they-them.”
As “Stevonnie” scrolls through the social media timeline, the words “Intersex rights are human rights!” and “Intersex Awareness Day October 28th” are seen.
The clip was part of a series of several videos made in partnership with Dove’s Self Esteem Project campaign.
Folks, when this is the direction in which the stream of American culture is flowing, what more can we expect from secular children’s media? If you’re still allowing your children to be exposed to Cartoon Network’s offerings, it’s time to put a stop to it.
