New Study Finds Half of Student Loan Borrowers Regret Going into Debt

Contrary to popular belief, government guaranteed loans are actually making things worse.

A new study published by Ramsey Solutions has found that 53% of those who took out student loans to pay for school say they regret doing so. In fact, 43% of borrowers said they regret going to college altogether.

“Student loans often lead to a sense of regret and feeling stuck,” the study concludes. “Those we surveyed feel ill-informed on alternative options to covering college costs. In fact, 71% of those who took out student loans to pay for school say they wish they’d been better educated about debt before taking it on.”

Student loan debt is certainly a massive burden, and many students are realizing that a college education doesn’t necessarily give them the competitive edge they expected. But there are other factors at play that can give us a better sense of why this is happening.

One of the main problems is the government’s involvement in the education system. When the government guarantees student loans, for example, it causes colleges to increase their tuition. Essentially, the government is subsidizing students and thus encouraging them to pursue higher education, even when that may not be the best fit for them. These subsidies lead to an artificially inflated demand, which leads to higher prices. So not only are students being misled about the value of a college education, they are also paying far more for it than they would in the absence of government interference.

And yet, when students graduate, many of them realize that their degree isn’t all that useful, and that they would have been better off pursuing a different educational pathway or entering the workforce earlier in life. This is a really hard situation to be in, and it’s no wonder they feel a sense of regret.

But while individuals should certainly be held responsible for their own decisions, it would be a mistake to overlook the role that the government played in creating this problem. After all, it was the government who coaxed them into attending college with easy money. And let’s be honest, it’s hard to refuse generous loans and grants when you’re 18 years old and everyone in your life is telling you that college is the best path to take.

         “I identify as non-binary,” she is quoted as saying, “but because that hasn’t hit the general consciousness of the adult industry, I say ‘girl,’ because that’s what people who want to buy my content will be looking for.”

Columbia Prep students and parents reel after class on ‘porn literacy’

Ron Milner (@RonMilnerBoodle) | Twitter
 
Parents at the posh Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School are outraged they were never told of a fourth “R” being added to the curriculum: raunch.

In addition to the usual reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic, the school this month launched lessons on porn — without informing families or allowing them to opt out, parents fumed.

When juniors at the $47,000-a-year Manhattan school showed up for a health and sexuality workshop, most thought it was “just going to be about condoms or birth control,” a student told The Post.

Instead, it was something called “Pornography Literacy: An intersectional focus on mainstream porn,” taught by Justine Ang Fonte, who’s the director of Health & Wellness at another elite prep school, Dalton.

The often-explicit slide presentation and lecture by Fonte to the 120 boys and girls included lessons on how porn takes care of “three big male vulnerabilities”; statistics on the “orgasm gap” showing straight women have far fewer orgasms with their partners than gay men or women; and photos of partially-nude women, some in bondage, to analyze “what is porn and what is art.”

Fonte’s presentation, some of which was seen by The Post, included a list of the most searched pornographic terms of 2019, including “creampie,” “anal,” “gangbang,” “stepmom” and more.

One slide cited various porn genres such as “incest-themed,” consensual or “vanilla,” “barely legal,” and “kink and BDSM” (which included “waterboard electro” torture porn as an example).

“We were all like, ‘What?'” a female student said. “Everyone was texting each other, ‘What the hell is this? It’s so stupid.’ Everyone knows about porn. The worst part of it was that it took place not long before the AP tests and I had to miss both my AP classes for this.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One part of the porn presentation involved something called the “marketability of Only Fans,” the hot new app used mostly for sex work. One slide included a photo of a pretty young woman who appeared to be promoting OnlyFans-type work.

“I identify as non-binary,” she is quoted as saying, “but because that hasn’t hit the general consciousness of the adult industry, I say ‘girl,’ because that’s what people who want to buy my content will be looking for.”

Children’s Show ‘Blue’s Clues’ Features Pride Parade, Cartoon Drag Queen, Children Explaining Pride Flags

“Blue’s Clues & You,” which is a Nick Jr. cartoon for young children, recently featured an LGBT pride parade with non-binary animals and a cartoon drag queen to celebrate Pride Month.

The parade features a cartoon version of Nina West, which is the drag name of Andrew Levitt, who narrates as float after float of LGBT animals passes by. First is a lesbian gator family, followed by a gay bear family; after them come non-binary dolphins, transgender beavers, as well various other asexual, bisexual, and pansexual animals.

“Love is love is love, you see, and everyone should love proudly and we’ll all go marching in the big parade!” the drag queen sings.

Disney Channel classic ‘The Proud Family’ gets woke reboot with new gay dads characters

And even better, the two gay dads – one of which is white, while the other is black – are raising a budding BLM/Antifa supporter.
 

Another favorite kids show for the last generation of youngsters is falling victim to yet more militant wokeness. Last month, Entertainment Weekly finally unveiled the new, LGBTQ-as-hell characters from its upcoming Proud Family reboot. Yes, the show now has an interracial gay dad couple, who, might we add, are the proud parents of another new character, a budding social justice activist.

Well this certainly puts the Proud in Proud Family.

The reboot, which is set to air on DisneyPlus in 2022, makes no bones about its commitment to the radical, anti-traditional family spirit of the age. Just look at the show’s name, The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder. Of course, the show lives up to the euphemism, with EW announcing that gay Hollywood actor Zachary Quinto and trans actor Billy Porter will be playing an interracial gay couple.

        "Research reveals that 60% of youth who pursue a transgender or non-binary lifestyle are highly likely to attempt self-harm, and an astounding 40% have contemplated suicide. This data is very telling — something is wrong..."

https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/gender-transition-is-a-cosmetic-farce-with-devastating-impact

Gender ‘transition’ is a cosmetic farce with devastating impact

We need more leaders to step up and secure our Judeo-Christian values — people who will hold true to the science of biology and the belief that we’re created by God for a specific purpose.

The sudden and inexplicable rise of transgenderism in our youth today should cause pause, and we must reflect on the greater meaning. Is there really a sudden spike in gender dysphoria where there has never been one before, or is this just a cause-du-jour foisted on our impressionable youth?

Abigail Shrier, author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, recently gave a fantastic presentation at Hillsdale College regarding this phenomenon. Her point, as she alludes to in the title of her book, is that this sexual revolution is causing irreversible harm. The long-lasting damage is both mental and physical, as young men and women face the dangers of hormone therapy and the irrevocable mutilation caused by transition surgery. Despite this evidence, transgenderism is on the rise.

Transgender advocacy groups’ push for transgender rights over the past several years has become an all-out assault on our traditional views. Consider the legal fight by the College of the Ozarks as they battle the premise that biological males should be allowed to shower with female students, simply because they state that they identify as female. This comes after Joe Biden signed the executive order titled, “Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation”. Or consider the young women in Connecticut fighting to stop biological males from competing in girls’ sports.

Our traditional Judeo-Christian values and morals are under siege. In its place is a morally-blank slate where drag queens have story time with preschoolers, extolling the virtues of their queer sexuality, and where young, impressionable men and women believe that gender dysphoria is common.

This isn’t healthy, nor is it helpful to our youth. Anyone who’s gone through puberty knows how challenging it is to face the influx of hormones, thoughts, and questions about your own sexuality, let alone muddle through an onslaught of social media posts telling you to become something other than your own biological sex.

Research reveals that 60% of youth who pursue a transgender or non-binary lifestyle are highly likely to attempt self-harm, and an astounding 40% have contemplated suicide. This data is very telling — something is wrong with this approach to sexuality. It hasn’t resulted in happier and healthier young adults, rather the opposite. Our youth are confused and hurting.

Yet, trans activists continue to peddle the lie that this is a healthy decision to make, despite running counter to every natural indicator of who we have been created to be. Yes, there are girls who will act like “tom-boys”. Does that mean they need to transition from being a girl to become a boy? No. There are boys who are more effeminate than others, does that make them a girl? No, of course not.

       “LGBT activists claim it’s “discriminatory” to reserve female competitive sports for actual females, but scientific research affirms that testosterone suppression does not eliminate all the physical advantages that come with male physiology.”

        Totally irrelevant. Keep focused, and keep the boys, or if you prefer, the faux girls, away from the real girls.

DeSantis defies NCAA threats over women’s sports: ‘To hell with these events’

'You can’t be cowed by these organizations, or particularly by woke corporations, from doing the right thing.'
 
Boycott threats by institutions like the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) cannot be allowed to intimidate public officials from doing the right thing, Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis told Fox News primetime host Tucker Carlson Tuesday.

DeSantis signed into law this week the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, which excludes biological males who claim transgender status from competing with the opposite sex in sex-specific athletic programs. The law is meant to protect female high-school and college athletes from having competitive and scholarship opportunities undermined by male students who claim to be “transgender women.”

“As these bills were going through various legislatures, I remember the NCAA put out a statement saying any state that enacts this, we’re not going to hold events there. And so I called the Speaker of the House in Florida and I said, ‘Did you hear what they said?’ And he’s like, ‘Yeah.’ I said, ‘We definitely got to get this done,’” DeSantis recounted to Carlson. “You can’t be cowed by these organizations, or particularly by woke corporations, from doing the right thing.”

“And so my view was throughout this whole time, we have to protect our girls, it is discriminatory to force them to compete against biological males,” he continued. “And so if the price of having a tournament is that I have to deny equal opportunity to hundreds of thousands of young girl and women athletes throughout Florida, I am much more willing to stand with the girls. And to hell with these events.”

The governor added that he does not expect Florida to be punished for defying outside pressure, because “we just made it clear. We’re standing with our folks, we’re gonna do the right thing. And so if corporations want to come in and try to bully us around, they are going to go nowhere. It’s going to be like hitting their head against a brick wall.”

LGBT activists claim it’s “discriminatory” to reserve female competitive sports for actual females, but scientific research affirms that testosterone suppression does not eliminate all the physical advantages that come with male physiology.

Nickelodeon celebrates pride month with new drag queen video for KIDS

The children’s network Nickelodeon is now creating drag queen videos for kids to watch in order to indoctrinate them into the LGBT agenda, with a heavy emphasis on transgenders. Here’s the video which was published on YouTube a few days ago:

This is disgusting. Nickelodeon caters to children as young as TWO YEARS OLD and they are using their influence to peddle this garbage into such young and innocent minds.

        "Stating the facts about sex and biology such as that men are men and cannot "become" women, is protected by the Equality Act 2010 in the United Kingdom, a stunning decision from a judge there has found."

         I suppose that a judge ruling that a person who claims a rhinoceros cannot become a sardine is protected speech would also be a stunning decision.

Judge rules believing men are men protected by 'Equality' law

Stating the facts about sex and biology such as that men are men and cannot "become" women, is protected by the Equality Act 2010 in the United Kingdom, a stunning decision from a judge there has found.

The ruling came in the case of Maya Forstater, who lost her job for defending the reality of biological sex, according to a report from the Christian Institute.

She was a dismissed from her position as a tax consultant in 2019 after she said on social media that biology determines whether people are male or female.

An employment tribunal later ruled that action was legitimate, but a judge, Mr. Justice Choudhury, now has reversed that.

"I am delighted to have been vindicated. I lost my job simply for expressing a view that is true and important, and held by the great majority of people in this country: sex matters," she said in a statement released by the institute. "Being a woman is a material reality. It is not a costume or a feeling. Institutions that pretend sex doesn’t matter become hostile places for women, in particular."

The "tribunal" that ruled against her earlier had said her views were "not worthy of respect."

But the judge said, in his decision, those "beliefs may well be profoundly offensive and even distressing to many others, but they are beliefs that are and must be tolerated in a pluralist society."

Her case now goes to a new tribunal for a determination if her dismissal was because of her "protected belief."

To the Daily Telegraph earlier this year, Forstater said she not only lost her job, but was subjected to abuse, because of her beliefs.

She had worked for the Centre for Global Development in the U.K. when she wrote of her concern about allowing people to choose their gender, arguing it is determined by biology rather than identity.

DailyMail.com reported she wrote on Twitter it's a biological fact that "men cannot change into women."

She explained her employer immediately "expressed concern" and said, "I was told to put a disclaimer into my twitter bio and warned that a lot of people would find my tweets offensive and exclusionary."

She then was dismissed, she said, even though she was found innocent of breaching company policy.

"I am concerned that governments around the world are rushing through laws and policies which say that people with male bodies can become women simply by identifying as women," she explained.

Forstater wrote on Twitter that "when men wear make-up, heels, dresses they don't become women."

       "In only four years, Nickelodeon has dropped more than two thirds of its audience."

https://www.wnd.com/2021/06/ratings-plunge-dramatically-kids-tv-network-goes-gay/

Ratings plunge dramatically as kids' TV network goes gay

Airing videos championing 'trans,' 'queer,' and 'pansexual' inclusion

Some of America's children's TV networks have gone "gay" and are losing their audience, nootes the Daily Wire's Megan Basham.

"Since July of 2017, Nickelodeon's viewership has dropped from 1.3 million average viewers per week to a June of 2021 average of only 372,000," she wrote. "In only four years, Nickelodeon has dropped more than two thirds of its audience. That is catastrophically bad for the cable channel, but with cable on the way out, maybe it's not so bad? The catch here is that it is, in fact, that bad and perhaps worse, simply because Nickelodeon seems to be the primary driving force behind new subscribers to Paramount+."

She explained that Nickelodeon's "hard push to promote the LGBTQ agenda to children is having a negative impact on the network's ratings."

"In the last two weeks, both Nickelodeon and its preschool-targeted network, Nick Jr., have released videos championing 'trans,' 'queer,' and 'pansexual' inclusion. One video that sparked mass outrage depicted a cartoon version of drag queen Nina West singing about various LGBTQIA groups '[loving] each other so proudly' on 'Blues Clues and You,' a show for two- to five-year olds. That same video showed a female-to-male transgender beaver who appeared to have post-operative surgical scars on its chest," she wrote.

Further, Nickelodeon posted a video this month featuring West, and it has been overtly celebrating "Pride" events.

The network "implied" in 2020 that its most popular character, SpongeBob SquarePants, is gay.
