Students in pre-k are learning more and more vocabulary. They are learning new words and the meaning of the words. The LGBTQ+ community is preying on our children and teaching them words such as ‘intersex’ and ‘drag queens.’ This is unacceptable and dangerous to the youth of America.
The wealthiest school district in Maryland has unveiled a list of books that teaches pre-k students LGBTQ+ vocabulary. This school district is indoctrinating our children at the age of 4.
A PowerPoint presentation by Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) shows a list of LGBTQ+ books that will be provided for pre-K through fifth-grade classrooms this year. The presentation explains that the LGBTQ-inclusive reading list aims to “reduce stigmatization and marginalization of transgender and gender nonconforming students.”
“All students deserve to see themselves in their school and classroom, including students who identify as LGBTQ+ and come from LGBTQ+ headed families and have family members that are a part of the LGBTQ+ community,” the presentation states. “There are no planned explicit lessons related to gender and sexuality, but these books do mean that LGBTQ+ identities will be made visible. Inclusive curricula support a student’s ability to empathize, connect, and collaborate with a diverse group of peers, and encourage respect for all.”
The presentation was apparently part of a professional development workshop for MCPS staff held in August about “Building Community with LGBTQ+ Affirming Picture Books.” One of the slides stated, “Use five of the books by the end of December.”
Pre-K teachers are also provided a resource guide about “defining LGBTQ+ words for elementary students” by the Human Rights Campaign, which includes vocabulary like “cisgender,” “gender binary,” “transgender,” “pansexual” and “queer.”
Students in kindergarten, ages 5 and 6, are advised to read the 2021 book, “Uncle Bobby’s Wedding,” which is about a wedding between two men.
Students in second grade, ages 7 and 8, are recommended to read “My Rainbow,” a book about a Black transgender child that teaches the words “transgender” and “cisgender.” A “think aloud” moment, according to MCPS, includes, “Appreciating that Trinity’s identities are part of what make her a ‘masterpiece.'”
Third-graders, ages 8 and 9, are recommended to read the 2018 book “Prince & Knight,” which tells the story of a prince who falls in love with a knight.
Students in fifth-grade, ages 10 and 11, are advised to read “Born Ready,” which tells the story of a Black transgender child.
