(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Caught proselytizing the radicalization of LGBT lifestyles to children, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was told this week to immediately stop its promotion of a website that actively encourages kids to go behind their parents back to explore everything from gender fluidity and transitional surgery to drag queens and the occult.
“Directing children to access online chatrooms that discuss sex, polyamorous relationships, white privilege, gender reassignment surgeries and LGBT activism is not among its many functions,” CDC chief Rochelle Walensky was informed about her department’s duties in a scathing letter written by Rep. Dan Bishop, R-N.C.
“Yet, recent reports indicate that under your leadership, the CDC is promoting a website that appears to groom children. This is unconscionable,” stated the letter, which was endorsed and backed by Congressional GOP leaders. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, Paul Gosar, Mary Miller, Andy Biggs, Chip Roy, and Jody Hice.
I led a letter with my colleagues demanding answers from the CDC on why they are promoting Q Chat, an online chat designed to be hidden from parents, where children discuss topics like sex change operations, polyamory, and sexuality. Read our full letter: pic.twitter.com/7PNYbtlJPY

Bishop’s letter included links to Breitbart’s reporting that exposed the CDC’s involvement with “Q Chat Space,” which described itself as “a digital LGBTQ+ center that encourages teens to join live chats.”
The site, which is actively promoted on the CDC’s LGBT Health Youth Resources page, “seems intentionally designed to be concealed from parents and family members, with each section of the website having a large button allowing for a ‘quick’ escape,” the letter informed, calling the level of deceptive stealth “deeply concerning.”
The CDC-aligned site further makes clear that “what’s shared here, stays here,” assuring that parents wouldn’t be notified of any radical transitions on gender identity curiosity.
There’s plenty to hide, with Q Chat featuring conversations “facilitated” by radical leftists, many who go by “alternative” pronouns like “ex/xem.” One CDC-promoted facilitator for child exploration “identified” as “Black, genderqueer, gray-ace, and neurodivergent.” Another is a “drag artist” who passes as “Black nonbinary queer asexual.”

Even more disturbing, Q Chat conflates topics like “Gender Affirmation Surgeries,” “Drag Culture 101” and “Having Multiple Genders,” with “more innocuous topics that may appeal to children, including Q Chats regarding Pokémon, Star Wars, music, and Pets.”
“The interspersion of these child-friendly topics with conversations of a mature nature is cause for greater concern, not less,” Bishop and the GOP Congressional leaders wrote in the letter to the CDC’s chief.
“It is deeply concerning that U.S. taxpayer dollars are being used to promote a website that allegedly engages in grooming behavior,” the letter said.
The lawmakers instructed the CDC and Walensky to immediately provide answers and explanations for the department’s endorsement of Q Chat, including how many users younger than 17 have visited the site and who made the decision to list Q Chat as an official CDC resource.
“Despite Q Chat’s desire for confidentiality, it is important that Congress conduct oversight to protect children from a bureaucracy that is either unwilling to do so or views itself as instrumental in their ongoing corruption,” Bishop wrote.
