Transgenderism is being loudly promoted in seemingly every area of society, including the education system.

It has been obvious for a while that those in the transgender movement want their cause to be the next big diversity issue thrust upon society. You don’t agree with them? You’re obviously a bigot. You teach your children something different at home? You’re clearly intolerant of others. How transphobic of you.

What parents teach in their own home is one thing. What a school teacher chooses to not only actively promote, but parade in front of their young students is quite another.

At the Rocklin Academy, a charter school in Rocklin, California, a kindergarten teacher decided to not only discuss transgenderism with FIVE and SIX-year-old children but allowed a transgender child to reveal their “true” identity in front of the class.

As expected, many parents are not too happy.

CBS News reports:

At Monday night’s board meeting, the teacher at the center of the controversy spoke out. With emotions high, she addressed a packed house.

“I’m so proud of my students, it was never my intent to harm any students but to help them through a difficult situation,” she said.

The teacher defended her decision to read two children’s books about transgenderism including one titled “I am Jazz.” She says the books were given to her by a transgender child going through a transition.

“The kindergartners came home very confused, about whether or not you can pick your gender, whether or not they really were a boy or a girl,” said England.

Parents say besides the books, the transgender student at some point during class also changed clothes and was revealed as her true gender.

And many parents say they feel betrayed and blindsided.

“I want her to hear from me as a parent what her gender identity means to her and our family, not from a book that may be controversial,” a parent said.

“My daughter came home crying and shaking so afraid she could turn into a boy,” another parent said.

And why shouldn’t those children have reacted in horror? They are a handful of years old and at school to learn letters of the alphabet, not whether little Johnny believes he should have always been a Jennifer and wants his penis removed from his body. These kids haven’t the slightest clue about sexuality and the hormones that will rage within them in less than a decade.

Of course, the teacher at the center of the controversy is only doing these things out of love and concern for her young pupils. You see, it’s all about diversity and healthy, tolerant minds!

It is California and the Left Coast, so I shouldn’t expect much in the way of common sense, should I? Apparently, other teachers – and even the school district itself – don’t possess much of a spine.

“When we head in the direction of banned books or book lists, or selective literature – that should only be read inside or outside the classroom, I think that’s a very dangerous direction to go,” said 7th grade teacher Kelly Bryson.

The district says the books were age-appropriate and fell within their literature selection policy. Unlike sex education, the topics of gender identity don’t require prior parental notice.

In a statement during the board meeting, the district said: “As indicated by Superintendent Robin Stout in a communication last week, staff will be engaging parents and teachers in discussions about how materials outside our curriculum will be addressed in the future.”

Let’s face it: transgenderism is entirely opposite of societal norms. At the very least, it indicates mental irregularity within the individual. The school district’s policy requiring parents be notified in advance for sex ed topics but not gender identity ed says all you need to know about the desire to sweep these delusions under the rug.

We could get into the subject of parents themselves promoting transgenderism in their homes and with their own children. This, I believe, is nothing short of child abuse. Those who do this are, more than anything, focused on being trendy, hip friends to their kids and not focused on actual parenting. It is entirely unhealthy and sets the stage for long-term repercussions of the mental and sexual kind.

However, it is even worse to see a teacher tasked with educating her children take the reigns and introduce these ideas to young, very impressionable minds incapable of understanding much complexity. Discussions like these should be left to parents. Period.

This is sure to be the tip of the iceberg as normalizing transgenderism continues to be the goal for those “tolerant” people among us. Unfortunately, some of these people inhabit classrooms across the country and we call them educators.
