Dancing on my tightrope of faith
The thought will not leave me that if they are so convinced we are tied to Magneto, perhaps I should contact my mother and meet their expectations.
And yes, I know it would be an exceptionally bad idea, but still it persists.

I'm going to sit on you.

You...are not the only one to have had such a thought.

I can understand the impulse Kurt, but getting Magneto involved would play right into their hands.
That said I'll contact my father and see if he's heard anything about Genosha.

If you like, I can come by and smack that idea out of your head? Since yeah, it's beyond bad. You'd throw the school and everyone connected to it under the bus for the sake of making a moron's point for them.
I know you're angry and worried. We all are. But we can't let them call the shots and yank our chains. We need to be smart about this.

This. Also, there's a good chance Magneto and the Brotherhood already know about what's going on. They haven't stayed out of the hands of the various groups hunting them this long without having ears to the ground themselves.

In the spirit of giving you a real reason not to go through with things aside from "it would play into their hands," which I know isn't justification enough some times when you're so angry you want to do things out of spite, allow me to give you another perspective.
We can't control them. We cannot control the Brotherhood or Magneto and if they knew humans had abducted mutants en masse the fall out could be deadly. In order to get our people back we not only need to be smart but we need to be in control. We need things to fall out the way we want and need them to. Introducing the chaos of your mother and her comrades means we shoot ourselves in the foot before we even have a plan.
That said, I understand the temptation. I find both hitting things and moderate amounts of alcohol while giving someone else my cell phone does wonders for these sorts of things. I'm sure you can find plenty of people who have nothing to do right now to help out with either or both.
