"A mom whose five-year-old daughter was in a California kindergarten classroom when a teacher read a book on transgenderism and her classmate switched from a boy to a 'girl' broke down describing the incident at a board meeting earlier this month.
'I thought that they would take my religious beliefs, my, I mean, I am part of the public, right? I thought they would take those into consideration,' said the mother of two.
'Instead, they swept us aside like we were trash, like, we have plenty of children on the waitlist, if you are not going to comply with what we want to do and say to your kindergartener — ,' at which point her voice broke.
' ... who was very confused ... '...
She stopped again, on the verge of tears, before adding: 'All I would have wanted was the chance to talk to her ahead of time.'...
Reports differ on just what happened during the lesson, but all agree that teacher Kaelin Swaney read the pro-transgender book 'I am Jazz' to the class at the request of a boy student who was transitioning into a 'girl.'
The board and teacher would not verify reports that the boy also changed into girl’s clothes and was reintroduced to the class as a girl with a girl’s name.
Meanwhile, a girl in the class was reportedly sent to the principal’s office when school resumed in late August for 'misgendering' the boy by calling him by his boy’s name, according to Karen England, executive director of Capitol Hill Resources."
