The mother of a 12-year-old girl in Salinas, California, alleged that teachers and administrators at her daughter’s school indoctrinated and pressured her to identify as ‘trans fluid.’
The girl’s mother denounced the educational establishment at the Spreckels Union School District (SUSD) board last Thursday, December 16, claiming that the school her daughter attended encouraged her to participate in an “Equality Club,” through which children were indoctrinated to develop homosexual tendencies, Breitbart reported.
The girl’s mother, Jessica Konen, indignantly told the school board Thursday:
“You took away my ability to raise my child!” alleging that school staff two years earlier encouraged her 12-year-old daughter to participate in the controversial club where she was pushed to question her sexual preferences and gender identity.
When her daughter was in seventh grade, she was called by the school to have a meeting with her daughter’s principals and teachers, where she was informed that the girl was “trans fluid,” a term developed over the last few years to refer to those people who say they do not have a defined gender and choose which one to belong to according to the circumstances or the moment.
“I sat across the table, and I was crying,” she told the outlet. “I was very confused. … I was very upset. I was blindsided — completely blindsided.”
Konen further charged that the teachers accused her of “not being emotionally supportive” of her daughter’s decision and that she should use the new name and pronouns she had supposedly chosen, which made her feel even worse about the situation she was in.
“I felt she completely coached my child,” Konen said. “It made me feel very, very small as a parent. I was unaware of anything. Not one time had she mentioned to me ‘Oh, I think that I want to change my name,’ or ‘I’m transgender’ or anything. Nothing. I only heard bisexual one time, and that was it.”
The nightmare for Konen didn’t end there. A few days after the meeting, police personnel knocked on her door to tell her that they had filed a report against her with Child Protective Services.
The police officers questioned her two children and even asked them if they wanted to be removed from her home.
Eventually, the agency dropped the case, Konen said, and did not require her to use male pronouns to address her female daughter.
The young mother withdrew her daughter from the facility, and now 14 years old, she attends another school where she uses her birth name and female pronouns as she had always done.
These types of “equality clubs” recently sparked a major scandal when renowned journalist Abigail Shrier of the Wall Street Journal presented evidence that many teachers are recruiting children to participate in these groups whose ultimate goal is to promote homosexual and transgender culture; Fox News reported.
“We are seeing deliberate training and confusion of our young children when it comes to gender identity,” Abigail Shrier, who has been outspoken against LGBT ideology since publishing her book “Irreversible Harm: The Transgender Fad Seducing Our Daughters,” told Fox News during an interview.
Shrier clearly warned not to underestimate the level of deception and manipulation that many activist teachers can exert on children and adolescents when dealing with such complex issues as homosexuality and gender ideologies.
