‘Transition ceremony’: 5-year-old boy becomes a ‘girl’
Rocklin Academy Gateway’s kindergarten teacher gave the lesson on transgenderism because a boy in the class is transitioning to a girl, Keller told LifeSiteNews.
During the lesson on the second-to-last day before summer break, the teacher read two books, “I am Jazz” and “The Red Crayon,” that purport to explain “transgenderism” to children aged four to eight, Fox40News reported.
“I am Jazz” is particularly explicit, beginning “From the time she was two years old, Jazz knew that she had a girl’s brain in a boy’s body.”
But the “huge bombshell” was that the teacher didn’t just read the books but “essentially put on this more-or-less transition ceremony” for the child, says Keller.
After the teacher introduced the five-year-old student to the class as a boy, he then went into the bathroom and emerged dressed as a girl.
The teacher then reintroduced “her” to the children, explaining “she” was now a “girl” who now had a girl’s name and was to be called that from now on.
Parents angry, kids traumatized and confused
That left a number of kids “really deeply emotionally bothered and traumatized,” Keller said.
“There were several of the little girls that went to their parents and were crying and saying, ‘mommy or daddy, am I going to turn into a boy?’”
And a boy who hadn’t given “gender” a single thought before is now asking his mother if he can dress as a girl for school, added Keller.
Responding to backlash from parents, principal Jillayne Antoon sent out a letter a week later that did not mention transgenderism, reported Fox40News.
Nor did it mention the transition ceremony or the teacher presenting the boy as a girl to his five-year-old classmates.
Antoon maintained the books were “age appropriate” and that the school’s non-discrimination policy “protects all students, including on the basis of gender, gender identity and gender expression.”
The teacher, however, never sought approval from the administration before using the books, according to Fox40News.
The board has now adopted the policy that books outside the curriculum have to be approved.
