Politically Correct Child Abuse

At California charter school Rocklin Academy Gateway, a five-year-old boy who thinks he is a girl must be treated as a girl. Teachers must indoctrinate the other students into thinking that it's all perfectly normal. Children must now address said boy by a girl’s name and use all of the properly feminine pronouns.

To begin the indoctrination process a classroom teacher exposed kindergarten students to a lesson about transgenderism. They then witnessed a transition ceremony in which a boy walked into a rest room and emerged as a girl.

The Daily Mail has the story:

Parents are angry after a kindergarten lesson had a student's transgender reveal occur mid-class.

The incident took place last year after a Rocklin Academy Gateway teacher gave the lesson on transgenderism because a boy in the class is transitioning to a girl, reported FOX40.

The California charter school and parents are now battling over whether the lesson was appropriate or if the kindergartners were too young to understand.

During the lesson on the second-to-last day before summer break, the teacher, who has not been named, read two books, I am Jazz and The Red Crayon. Both are meant to explain 'transgenderism' to children between ages four and eight.

However, in what critics are calling a 'transition ceremony', the teacher introduced the five-year-old student to the class as a boy. The student then went into the bathroom and emerged dressed as a girl.

The teacher then reintroduced her to the children, and explained she was now a girl with a girl's name and was to be called that from now on.

The children are obviously far too young to understand any of it. One girl came home in tears because she thought that one day she could walk into a restroom and emerge a boy:

My daughter came home crying and shaking so afraid she could turn into a boy,' one parent said.

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.

The school also argued that not reading the books would have put them at risk of discrimination and could expose them to a potential lawsuit.

Obviously, we are dealing with child abuse. The problem should be solved by charging the parents of the transgendered five-year-old with child abuse. What parent in his or her right mind takes the word of a small child as absolute truth? While they are at it, the parents of the other kindergarteners should sue the school district for child abuse.

Have we forgotten the witch hunt against nursery school teachers whose pupils were induced by social workers to declare that they suffered torture and mutilation at the hands of their teachers… even though their bodies showed no signs of such brutal treatment. Of course, the facts did not matter. The reality did not matter. The teachers were often convicted and imprisoned.

And why has no one imagined that a child in kindergarten, hearing about transgenderism, might come home crying that she now fears being turned into something she is not? For all we know, with the right kind of counseling, it might happen. After all, we are talking about a belief. And we know that a child's mind is not that difficult to manipulate.

Ah, now we see the problem. The enlightened lawyers rule everything. The parents are ignorant, and part of the problem. The teachers comply, and deliver the social justice message. The students suffer.

Collateral damage.

Public schools are an adult public works program of ideological indoctrination. The situation described here is no different than the instructions for a programming card on early 1970s computers. Input, output.

The child's mind is the Deweyites's tabula rasa, ready to accept the elite imperative. Society must be turned upside down because of the confused, emotional whims of 0.3% of the population.

It all makes sense, as that is the state of public education today.

This really is only a trauma if the girl's parents make it one for her by their own hysterics. I recall Fred Rogers had a song "You can never go down the drain" to help relief children's irrational fears. I guess we need a new song.

Oh, here it is: Mister Rogers - You Can Never Go Down The Drain
