Gender Identity Agenda: What You Don’t Know Can Hurt Your Children!
In a recent article published by the Telegraph in the U.K., on December 12, 2019, it was reported that in the last 3 years 35 psychologists have turned in their resignation to London’s Gender Identity Development Services (GIDS) at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. From the article:
“One psychologist, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “Our fears are that young people are being over-diagnosed and then over-medicalized.
“We are extremely concerned about the consequences for young people… For those of us who have previously worked in the service, we fear that we have had front row seats to a medical scandal.”

Transgender Agenda Not Just About Bathrooms
Transgender Policies are Traps for Our Children!
Ever since the Supreme Court ruled that states have to recognize gay marriage, the homosexual lobbyists have been on hyper-drive promoting homosexual laws, transgender policies and filing lawsuits against any business, school, or government agency that won’t comply. Schools across the country are being intimidated by the ACLU and threatened with potential lawsuits if they don’t adopt a transgender policy. Bellevue Public School District in Bellevue Nebraska (just south of Omaha) received one of these letters from the ACLU and in December of 2015, became the first school district in the state to adopt a transgender policy. The terms, definitions and verbiage of such policies come from suggested text provided by the ACLU and organizations like Planned Parenthood and LGBT affiliated organizations. A common phrase used over and over again is “assigned at birth.” The term is used to differentiate a child’s “gender preference” from their actual gender.
Below is a list of definitions used in Bellevue Schools Transgender Policy. These definitions are being promoted in our schools and throughout our society as fact and are expected to be accepted and adopted as factual definitions. While we can clearly see the absurdity of this nonsense, our young impressionable children may not. They are promoting these definitions and concepts as early as Kindergarten. It is also a standard part of Comprehensive Sex Education curriculum.
- “Gender identity” is a person’s deeply held sense or psychological knowledge of their own gender, regardless of the sex they were assigned at birth. Everyone has a gender identity.
- “Transgender” describes people whose gender identity is different from their gender assigned at birth.
- “Gender expression” refers to the way a person expresses gender, such as clothing, hairstyles, activities, or mannerisms.
- “Sex” is the physical makeup of a human being, referred to as their biological or natal sex. A person’s biological sex is sometimes also referred to as their “assigned gender.”
School Districts Have Oversight of Policies
Many School Districts receiving aggressive letters from the ACLU are intimidated and feel they need to implement their recommended policies or be faced with law suits. Alliance Defending Freedom sent a clarifying letter to Bellevue City Schools pointing out their authority as well as many misconceptions regarding the transgender push on our schools. This letter can be helpful to other families and school board representatives seeking answers and support.
Unfortunately Bellevue City School District caved and voted to adopt an aggressive Transgender policy. The wording of the Policy is addressed at left. To read the entire policy Click Here
It is important we understand these policies and keep track of them in our own communities so we have an opportunity to voice our concerns before they become a part of our schools. But even if they have already been adopted, there are still things you can do. Every state has organizations that stay on top of these issues at the state level and are often aware of community issues as well.
To stay up to day in your own community, we highly recommend attending your local school board meetings. They are usually held once or twice a month and you can call your children’s school to find out when and where the meetings are held.
Transgender Policies Coming to School Near You!
The ACLU has sent letters to school districts throughout the United States “encouraging” them to adopt radical transgender policies for their schools. A small town in Bellevue Nebraska received such and letter and believing it was regulated by the state, adopted the policy. The policy, listed as Administrative Regulation Code: 511, is similar to “transgender” policies being adopted in schools throughout the country.
Schools Now Using Storybook Character to Promote Gender Confusion
The Genderbread Person flyer is being distributed in schools all across the country as a way to teach children about the “complicated” definitions of gender and sexuality.
In early 2015, Lincoln City Schools in Lincoln Nebraska sent out a flyer called Genderbread Person to every teacher and classroom in the school district as a way to help “explain” transgender definitions to students. This flyer has been distributed to children in elementary schools all across America and most parents have no idea what their children are being exposed to.
The Genderbread Person was created by Sam Killerman who also wrote the book “A Guide to Gender.” He speaks at schools and universities throughout the country. If you want to know what is being promoted in your children’s schools visit Genderbread 2-0 on Sam’s website.
This whole entire “gender” issue creates confusion. They make it all sound cool, hip, open-minded and scientific, but its simply creating confusion and completely void of common sense. A TED Talk by Sam will give you an idea of how they are trying to confuse our children, call it science and present it as fact.
