The importance of queer education to Gen Alpha Kids!

Undoubtedly, Gen alpha remains the most transformative generation ever, especially with all the changes that have been taking place around the world since 2010 and the kids that are born after 2012 see the new normal as the real world, unlike Gen Z and Millennials who have experienced and witnessed way too many changes in the meantime. Strictly speaking, to most Gen alpha kids, the queer community became part of the present societal scenario. But, it completely depends on the people from earlier generations to impart essential queer knowledge in the minds of Gen alpha kids. And it's not that complex to make them understand, unlike boomers.




Gen alpha is the fastest learning generation and the kids are quite adaptive and can easily get along with changes but for that, they must be aware of the importance of identities and orientations in current society. It is a must because they shouldn't turn out to be judgmental, confined, restrictive, or narrow-minded which completely contradicts the current scenario around. Unlike our parents and grandparents, our kids and grandkids shouldn't face confusion in recognizing people from diverse orientations and identities and most importantly, they should open up themselves to various possibilities in terms of acceptance.




It doesn't imply the acceptance of others but also implies self-acceptance and being clear about one's personality from the childhood stage so that they won't face any kind of physical and psychological hurdles in the future. Kids are like blank pages and they grow up filling those pages with the lessons taught by parents, guardians, teachers, and elders respectively. They can grasp anything easily including homophobic and queerphobic attitudes. Hence, it is in the hands of the people who bring them up, who should consider the factor of inclusivity and normality regarding the queer people around to secure the future as the best place to live in.
