Transgenderism is taught in classrooms

To the Editor:
This is a warning to all Minnesota school districts. Transgender ideology is being taught by LGBT activists under the banner of “safe schools” and “bullying prevention” and your school could be next. The real bullies are the gender radical trainers who are forcing this transgender training on K-12 teachers all around the country.
On Feb. 16, teachers in Anoka-Hennepin School District 11 took the training and were introduced to the Genderbread Person model for sexuality. (Yes, just like the cookie.) The Genderbread Person is a fabricated construct that teaches children that gender is not based on biology, but is all in their head — who they “think” they are.
To normalize transgenderism and be inclusive of multiple genders, the teachers were instructed not to call the children in their class “boys and girls.” Instead they were told to say, “Good morning, friends!” The false Genderbread Person model was presented as fact and teachers were not allowed to question the message.
This pervasive and radical ideological agenda is harmful to children. Transgenderism is a psychological disorder that should not be normalized in the minds of vulnerable children who might then seek to take carcinogenic and toxic cross-sex hormones. Down the road they will likely consider surgical mutilation of healthy body parts. The children’s DNA will remain the same, however.  They will never be the opposite sex.
This intrusion on childhood, just to satisfy an adult political agenda, is reprehensible. The American College of Pediatricians states: “Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse.”
The gender-radical teachers must be stopped. Attorneys need to look into possible charges of sexual harassment and impairing the morals of a minor.
Teachers, do not be afraid to speak up about this dangerous training. Parents, expose the gender-radical teachers by notifying your school board and other parents immediately.
We must protect our kids by keeping the harmful Genderbread transgender conditioning out of the classroom. This kind of teaching is making schools unsafe for all school-age children and we must take action.
