Parents Outraged: Kindergarten Transgender Ceremony Transitions 5-yr-old boy to a ‘girl’ n Classroom among stunned children
‘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.
LifeSiteNews contacted the school board but did not hear back by deadline.
No opt out or parental consent for gender issues: law
District Superintendent Robin Stout told Fox40News that parents were not notified because kids can’t opt out of gender identity and expression lessons.
The school board also held a special session on the matter on July 31, which included a presentation on California law by Young, Minney & Corr law firm that echoed Stout’s assertions.
According to that presentation, since January 2016, state law allows parents to only opt their children out of sex education.
“Diversity and tolerance curricula are not ‘sex education,’” it emphasized.
“California law explicitly provides that ‘instruction or materials that discuss gender, sexual orientation, or family life and do not discuss human reproductive organs and their functions’ are not subject to the parental notice and opt-out laws.’”
Moreover, a student has the “right to self-identify” and “a right to the use of his or her preferred pronoun at school and in class.”
To not comply intentionally with this is “considered gender identity harassment,” the law firm asserted.
‘Institutional child abuse’
Michelle Cretella, president of the American College of Pediatricians, has denounced “institutions that promote transition affirmation” as engaging in “nothing less than institutionalized child abuse” that can inflict “untold psychological damage.”
“All children should be told the truth that sex does not ever change and cannot be changed,” Cretella told LifeSiteNews in an email.
“All children should be nurtured to embrace their bodies and the reality of their biological sex. All children should be affirmed as the unique boys or girls their bodies proclaim them to be.”
A number of families have decided to pull their children from the school, Keller says. Parents are also circulating a petition asking for parental notification before controversial material is brought up in class.
CFC is considering pushing for state legislation to protect parental rights.
“It’s such an egregious case, we’re trying to figure out what can be done, from the legal perspective, the legislative perspective, or at the very least at the local level,” Keller said.
What happened at Rocklin Academy, he said, is another instance of the “growing effort in Western democracies to try to fracture the relationship between parents and their children, and to make children wards of the state.”

I was born a girl & today I am still a girl – albeit an older girl.
When I was & my best friend ever was Harry Schutul – Harry was the Jewish boy who lived around the corner & across the road from me.
He shared his super hero & cowboy comic books with me.
He shared his 2 favorite Teddys – Taggy & Shmaggy with me.
We played cowboys & Indians.
We smoked a couple of cigarette buts we found down the lane together.
We climbed trees at Curtain Square together.
Yep – I was a Tom Boy – when I was young.
I was also good at maths & science & sport in high school.
So maybe I was a BOY
But I doubt it
I also cook wash & sew & knit & dance & sing & paint & draw flowers & birds & I like to dress up & wear make up – like a girl & I prefer men in marriage to women.
But still – I guess – in today’s world I could easily have been mistaken for a boy & not a multi-fasted human girl – by the annul’y retentive & fastidious perverts – of today’s world
At 7 years old – Harry Schutel was my best friend in all the world.
Harry went to a Jewish run school in another suburb – Harry has to catch the Rathdowne St bus to get to school.
I went to St Marks in Lygon St Carlton.
I was a very religious child, I knew the story of The Children of Fatima & i’d seen the movie – even.
At 8 year old it was time for my First Holy Communion – we girls dress up as little brides & commit ourselves to Jesus Christ.
Friday – Father John Little came to St Marks in a car to hear our confession – we had to be careful to remain sin free – in thought – word – & deed till Sunday.
Saturday was when Harry & I got together to play & I was keen to go over & I knew Harry was waiting. But I had to remain sin free till after my First Holy Communion on Sunday & I was not sure if I should risk playing Cowboys & Indians or any other risky games on this day of all days.
I looked up at the sky & knew God was watching me & if i unintentionally committed a sin – what would I say to mum “I can’t have my Holy Communion because I have commuted a sin?”
She made my dress & veil & bought me new white socks & shoes for the occasion & I cocked it up – this could not happen & you can’t have your First Holy Communion if you have committed a sin.
So I decided to stay at home & help my mother with housework & other errands & play cooking in the back yard.
Be a girl & stay safe.
At 8 I was a complex little girl – totally aware of my identity & my surroundings – I loved being religious & loved God & all the pomp & ceremony that went with it.
I could make complex decisions all by myself & I knew I was a girl & a Tom boy.
I do not believe that children today are any less complex than I was back then when discrimination – racism – misogyny – sexism & all the other ism’s road rough shot through out the world.
Leave the bloody kids alone & let them live their own lives.
\”Hi guys, I haven\’t seen you in such a long time, how have you been?\” I ask Luke & Laura.
& before they can open their mouths – their fathers replies on their behalf, \”the\’re okay – Luke\’s …………..\”
\”I wasn\’t asking you.\” & he eventually stopped.
The kids & I talk & talk & talk – there is so much to catch up on.
Even Andrew – their dad – gets to find out how the kids have been.
My mother always said – “you have 5 children & not one of them takes after you.”
Despite all the interactivity & dependence – are we our own procession – I think so.
i am nothing like may parents – or my sister. when I was about 8-10 years old – I wish really hard for my real parents to come get me.
Was I adopted & never told – I never felt like I belonged to them ?
Have a great day Jagg.
My youngest son Joe – mum found an passport size photo of her grand uncle – who was the spitting image of my Joe & his name was Joe – I had no idea that great grand uncle Joe existed & nor that the name Joe was a family name.
My cousin Stephen in Reunion.
Cousin Teo is Slovenia – when he’s not running around Europe.
Cousin Anton in Italy.
Uncle Yenko is Frank.
But no Joe.
Here is the evil of promissory notes when learned young.
The promise of $5 as an achievement award is a lie – no kid is that stupid.
The came to – crepes with lemon juice – sugar & coffee for the grownups brunch one Sunday – I was telling Andrew about my once upon a time when you were a kid – face to face with a neighbor Wendy – the kids were listening & Laura – the 6 – began to raise her right hand to indicate that Wendy needed a good smack.
