Parents Fighting Back Against “Purple Penguin” Gender Training Materials in Schools

Headline Politics ran a story a few months ago about a Nebraska school district encouraging teachers at a middle school to abandon any reference to children as either ‘boys’ or ‘girls,’ because they deemed it too insensitive for those of presumably other genders. Instead, they asked teachers to refer to their students as “campers” or “purple penguins.”

The “purple penguins” section can be seen below.


Fast forward a couple of months later, those same gender identity training handouts have shown up in Northern California, complete with a diagram of a “genderbread person” to teach children about gender identity, and an actual sex checklist to help 13-year-olds determine if they are ready for sex. The checklist offers advice on how to get consent for sex by asking questions such as “Is it OK if I take my pants off?”

Parents are, predictably and understandably, pretty upset about it, and have called on legal counsel to help fight back against these groups.

Watch this Fox News report, in which one man says these groups “should be no more welcome on a local school campus than the local pervert wrapped in a raincoat.”

One woman, Rachel Terry, is fighting back in Nebraska by running for the school board. Terry encouraged others to do the same thing, saying “Parents around the country need to unite to take our public schools back from the advocacy groups that have infiltrated them.”

She added, “it’s clear that advocacy groups have infiltrated the system.”

“Teacher training time should be spent focused on academics, not spent on long discussions about sexuality and gender identity.”

Terry has started a crowdfunding effort to raise money for her school board campaign, and to fight back against these advocacy groups.

Do you think parents need to start fighting back against extreme liberal groups infiltrating our children’s schools?
