“Transgender and non-binary youth are part of classrooms all across this country and deserve to see their stories reflected in their schools and communities”
The National Education Association has teamed up with the Human Rights Campaign to push transgendered indoctrination in elementary schools. The pair are pushing schools and communities across the country to read children’s books about transgenderism on February 27 (today).
From the HRC blog:
On February 27, thousands of parents, educators, elected officials and allies will join in solidarity with transgender and gender-expansive students by hosting school and community readings of I Am Jazz, a children’s book by transgender teen trailblazer Jazz Jennings, as well as additional titles. The fifth annual Jazz and Friends National Day of School and Community Readings is sponsored by the Welcoming Schools Program at the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation, the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization, and the National Educational Association (NEA), the country’s largest professional employee organization, representing 3 million educators across the U.S.
Following yet another year of cruel attacks on the rights and dignity of transgender young people — including a firestorm of proposed state legislation which could bar transgender youth and their parents from making decisions about their medical care — the day of readings helps foster safe and welcoming schools and communities for youth who still rarely hear affirming stories of LGBTQ people. In addition to I Am Jazz, participants will have the option of reading from additional books about transgender and gender-expansive youth of color, including Julián Is a Mermaid by Jessica Love and They, She, He Easy as ABC by Maya and Matthew Smith Gonzalez.
“Transgender and non-binary youth are part of classrooms all across this country and deserve to see their stories reflected in their schools and communities,” said HRC President Alphonso David. “I Am Jazz is a joyful book loved by children of all identities and it serves as a powerful tool for educators, parents and anyone who wants to lead with love during these challenging times. The readings that will take place across the country send a powerful message of support to transgender youth and their allies.”
According to CNS News, the Family Research Council encouraged parents to keep their kids home:
The conservative Family Research Council (FRC) is urging parents across the country to keep their kids home on Thursday, Feb. 27, a day that pro-LGBT activists and teachers will use to read pro-transgender books to children in some schools and libraries, a practice they want to establish as an annual event.
“Do you want your child to be psychologically manipulated at school on Thursday? Might be a good day for a Mommy Date at the museum!” said the FRC’s Cathy Ruse in a post on the group’s website.
“The anti-Christian Human Rights Campaign [HRC]and their pals at the powerful National Education Association are pushing public schools to recognize this Thursday as ‘Jazz and Friends National Day of School & Community Readings,'” noted Ruse.
The HRC states that it is showcasing three books for the Jazz and Friends readings: Julian is a Mermaid, I am Jazz, and They She He Me: Free to Be!
The suggested books whitewash transgenderism in an effort to normalize the behavior. CNS continued:
InJulian is a Mermaid, a young boy fantasizes about dressing as a woman after he sees three women dressed as Mermaids on the subway. With his new view, Julian can be anything he wants, a mermaid, a woman, or ?
Commenting on the book, LGBTQ Nation said, “Growing up with lesbian aunts as the heart of the family, [author Jessica] Love says it helped to shape the book as she created it. She also cited her partner’s older brother, who had just transitioned when they met.”
The children’s book They She He Me: Free to Be!is a “much-needed picture book about pronouns and gender fluidity,” according to the School Library Journal. According to the blurb on amazon, the book is “a go-to place to help keep the conversations alive, break down assumptions of who is ‘she’ or ‘he’ and expand beyond the binary to include ‘they’ and more.”
I am Jazz is “a transgender propaganda book designed for children,” reported the FRC. “It is based on the real-life story of ‘Jazz,’ a child who was convinced that he was born in the wrong body. As a child he was injected with hormones to block his normal sexual development, and recently he had radical surgery to complete his ‘transition’ to another sex. Which, of course, is impossible.”
Here’s I am Jazz, written by Jazz Jennings, a boy who underwent radical surgery to become female and now has a reality show on TLC documenting her (?) life:
