December 2022—A teacher at Saturn Elementary School, located in the Los Angeles Unified School District, who claims to be a “trans demiboy non-binary,” used “gender-fluid” stuffed animals to teach children how to use “proper pronouns.” As part of the lesson, the teacher explained that there are “many more genders out there in the universe” than just male and female. Additionally, the teacher wished to include third-graders in the school’s “rainbow club.”
October 2022—Pitt County Schools began working with East Carolina University to develop radical gender-theory curricula and policies to ensure students stop normalizing heterosexuality, use gender pronouns in classes, help teachers create LGBT-focused classrooms, and provide children with “support” behind their parents’ backs. Two of the stated goals of this training are “Promote LGBTQ ideology in schools” and “Reduce heterosexism and cisgenderism (heterosexual privilege) in schools.”
September 2022—At the KIPP Poder Academy, a charter school that celebrates “diversity, equity and inclusion” in San Antonio, Texas, 13-year-old students had to role-play as seducing hookers in their Social Emotional Learning class. The students were paired up and called to the front of the room to strike poses. One pose was as a “seducing hooker,” with a hand on one hip and the other behind their ear. The teacher explained what a hooker was and what seduce meant. Some students felt uncomfortable by the game so the teacher gave them candy if they would participate. When a mother complained the school apologized but denied that this was an example of sexualizing children. It should be noted than San Antonio is a major hub for the sex trafficking of minors.

Another, “Everything you Ever Wanted to Know About Being Trans…,” discusses BDSM, fetishes, and a kink social media networking site. “This Book Is Gay,” another title in this collection, discusses the homosexual, casual hookup site Grindr, and includes detailed information on how to have anal and “girl on girl” sex, and explores sex parties and orgies. Another book, “The A-Z of Gender and Sexuality,” also discusses kink and fetishes as well as “tucking” – the process of hiding one’s penis and “whorephobia” – stigma against prostitutes. When the principle of the school was asked about the “queer library,” he said, “In my educational experience, books are always a good thing and any books that support our students, I’m for.”

The list of sexual orientations include androsexual, polysexual, skoliosexual, demisexual, and gynesexual, while the genders include androgynous, bygender, gender-nonconforming, gender questioning, and nonbinary. Additionally, this same school district uses the “Genderbread Identity” man as a tool to indoctrinate children. One section includes a video on “what it is like to be trans in high school.” The school district also uses another text book, “Comprehensive Health,” which includes profiles of students, including their names, sexual orientation and gender identity, and asks kids to create their own. For example, “Kai” is 14 years old. She is gender-fluid and pansexual, according to her profile.

February 2022—At John F. Kennedy Middle School in Enfield, Connecticut, 8th graders received an assignment to “use pizza as a metaphor for sex.” Students were asked to draw a pizza and list the toppings that they would prefer on their pizza and the toppings they do not like. The students were to then extend the metaphor to sex by writing what sexual activities they would prefer to engage as represented by the toppings they preferred while the toppings they do not like represented sexual activities they wished to avoid. As an example, the instructions said, “Likes: Cheese = Kissing Dislikes: Olives = Giving Oral.”
October 2021—Fairfax County Public Schools, in Virginia, gave a survey asking detailed questions about sex to children as young as 13 years old.

Are you transgender?”
June 2019—The ACLU and Planned Parenthood partnered with school districts across California to make progressive sex education and gender theory instructional materials for teachers. One video coached teachers on ways to help students obtain abortions without parental knowledge or consent and how to conceal the absences from parents. A parent from Murrieta School District claimed the instructional videos discussed “mutual masturbation” along with “gender roles, the gender spectrum, and in the support materials … they take it even further. They discuss everything, topics like roleplaying for different genders, blood play, dental dams … fisting is mentioned. I mean, they mention it all.” In another video an ACLU official tells teachers how to prevent parents from opting their children out of LGBT education going so far as to say “opting out of just LGBTQ stuff is illegal and should be impossible.”
May 2018—Western Albermarle High School in Virginia worked with Charlottesville Sexual Assault Resource Agency to show freshman girls a video by Laci Grace, a self-described sex educator who frequently partners with Planned Parenthood to produce her videos. The video begins with Green offering viewers a discount to one of her sponsors, which describes itself as the “#1 adult toy superstore.” Green goes on to discuss “penis pleasure,” sex toys, and how “your butt can be a wonderful source of pleasure as well.” Later in the video, she talks about oral sex, “butt stuff,” “hand play,” and giving an “awesome blow job.”
