A California middle school science teacher was forced to stop passing out a graphic titled “The Gender Unicorn” that explained gender identity, gender expression, and attraction after parents weighed in.
It’s quite distressing that the unscientific “gender unicorn” handout was given out by a science teacher. It is complete bunk and has no place in health class, either, or anywhere in any school for that matter. Kudos to the principal for shutting it down.
Public schools aren’t just undermining parents with the curriculum. When children “decide” they “might” be transgender, parents better not object or else they will be treated as a threat to their own children’s well-being. https://t.co/uifLNsvlYs pic.twitter.com/QmwaiD46ZI

As usual in matters such as these, California is leading the way.
On the first day of classes at Denair Middle School near Modesto science teacher Luis Davila Alvarado handed out worksheets from a transgender advocacy group titled “The Gender Unicorn” asking students about their “gender identity,” “gender expression,” and their sexual and emotional attractions.
These are children. And yet the teacher did not ask permission to hand this out. Most parents were outraged. The school estimated about 50 children received the worksheet. It turns out Alvarado was educating the children about his own life. He declared he rejects the term “Mr.” and prefers to be addressed with the newfangled “Mx.,” pronounced “Mix.” A school official quickly put a stop to it, but the damage was done.
In California, waiting until middle school for this boatload of propaganda is actually inappropriate! In May, the California Board of Education established a set of guidelines insisting schools should begin discussing “gender identity” in kindergarten. “While students may not fully understand the concepts of gender expression and identity,” the guidelines insist, “some children in kindergarten and even younger have identified as transgender or understand they have a gender identity that is different from their sex assigned at birth.” Schools apparently must leap to address the “harm of negative gender stereotypes.” More
Middle schoolers should not be asked by a teacher or any adult who they are “sexually attracted to” period.
First of all, it’s none of their business, second of all this is a discussion between parents and children at their parent’s discretion. This crosses the line on so many different levels.
