American children are being targeted by the LGBTQ community. The goal: To teach transgenderism to four- and five-year-olds in the classroom. This is not only wrong and perverse, but a form of child abuse. And it must be stopped.
The latest example of the radical LGBTQ agenda is at a Boston-area charter school. Ray Skyler, a first grade teacher at Brooke Roslindale School, recently announced to the students in kindergarten, first and second grade that she is transgender. Skyler is a biological female who “identifies” as a male. She was born and raised as a girl. Yet, at the age of 18, she began to view herself as a man trapped inside a woman’s body. For some twisted reason, Skyler felt the need to discuss this very intimate, complicated, and deeply inappropriate private matter to young, impressionable school children
On a Zoom call, Skyler told the students about her sexual identity. The assistant principal of Brooke Roslindale, Sarah Hammond, urged the young children to “listen carefully” to what Skyler had to say. In short, Skyler’s statement of gender identity was fully backed by the school’s administration.
“So something that’s really cool and unique about who I am is that I am transgender,” Skyler said. “So when babies are born, the doctor looks at them and they make a guess about whether the baby is a boy or girl based on what they look like. Most of the time that guess is 100% correct; there are no issues whatsoever, but sometimes the doctor is wrong; the doctor makes an incorrect guess.”
“When a doctor makes a correct guess, that’s when a person is called cisgender,” she added. “When a doctor’s guess is wrong that’s when they are transgender.”
If this wasn’t confusing enough for the four- and five-year-old kids, Skyler elaborated.
“So I’m a man, but when I was a baby the doctors told my parents I was a girl,” she said. “And so my parents gave me a name that girls typically have; they bought me clothes that girls typically wear, and until I was eighteen-years-old everyone thought I was a girl.”
According to Skyler, however, her parents and the doctors were wrong. In fact, she says it was a form of gender oppression.
“And this was super, super uncomfortable for me because I knew that wasn’t right,” Skyler said. “So when I was eighteen I told my family and my friends that I’m really a boy and it was like this huge weight had been lifted off of my shoulders and I had the freedom to be who I truly am.”
She concludes by affirming and even boasting of her transgender identity.
“And even though this experience is super-challenging sometimes,” Skyler says, “it made me the person I am and I’m super-proud to be transgender.”
Well, good for you. But the real question is: Why do her students need to know this? And why does Brooke Roslindale also feel the need to teach the K-2 students about this?
The answer is simple — and disturbing: The goal of the radical Left is not education, but indoctrination. Liberals are using public schools to brainwash and inculcate children in the LGBTQ agenda.
One need only look at Skyler herself. She is a far-left activist masquerading as a teacher. On Facebook, Skyler has denounced Florida’s recent Parental Rights in Education law, which bans the teaching of transgenderism and adult sexual content to students from kindergarten to third grade.
In fact, she admits that she’s had numerous “conversations with many young children … about what being transgender is.” And according to Skyler, every child she’s talked to has embraced and supported her transgender identity.
“I’ve even been the recipient of a group hug! Children just get it, it’s as simple as that,” she said.
No, they don’t get it. They just don’t have the choice (or the ability) to push back against this craven, self-absorbed narcissist, who is preying upon these young children behind the backs of their parents.
The teaching of transgenderism and sexual content of any kind — heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, super-sexual, any-sexual — has no place in the classroom, especially in elementary school. Children lack the proper maturity; their minds are too young and unformed; and their emotional and psychological make-up are too underdeveloped to remotely comprehend this kind of sexual and biological subject matter.
Moreover, discussing sexual content with young kids is mental and emotional child abuse. It violates and robs them of their innocence. I can think of very few things more evil or worse than this. It is a form of grooming — the deliberate sexualization of children, treating them as sexual beings who are mature enough to discuss, understand and even experience the differences between male and female genitalia, private body parts and sex organs. It is sick, twisted and perverse. The only step left is normalizing and mainstreaming pedophilia, which I predict in about ten years liberals will be advocating for.
Conservatives — and parents — have no choice. This is the political hill we must be willing to die on.
Not only Massachusetts but every other state should follow the Florida model: the teaching of transgenderism and sexual content needs to be banned from K-3 education. Otherwise, the United States will become Sodom and Gomorrah.
