Ontario Parents File Complaint Against School for Teaching 6-Year-Old Daughter About Gender Fluidity and Causing Her Distress

An Ontario couple has filed a complaint in the provincial Human Rights court against the school system after their six-year-old daughter was taught gender fluidity in class and started worrying she might not be female.
During a 1st grade class at Devonshire Community Public School in January 2018, a teacher presented a YouTube video on gender called “He, She, and They?!?—Gender: Queer Kid Stuff #2” which was part of the lesson plan that day, according to Canadian columnist Barbara Kay, who interviewed the girl’s mother, Pamela Buffone, in the Post Millennial Monday.

“I think you’ve got to get in front of it somehow,” Pamela Buffone said in a Tuesday interview with The Christian Post, when asked what she would advise parents who believe as she does about the harms of teaching gender theory to young children.

“Be knowledgeable about trans-activism and read your school’s policies. Ask them how they’re going to teach concepts like gender fluidity and don’t expose too much of your own position first. You’ll learn a lot from how they choose to answer your questions.”

Among the statements presented as fact in the video were “some people aren’t boys or girls,” and some do not feel like they are a “he” or a “she” and because of that may not have a gender. The young girl, who was thoroughly confused, told her mother that the teacher, who kept teaching this kind of gender theory throughout the semester, would tell the class that “there is no such thing as girls and boys” and “girls are not real and boys are not real.”

By March her parents “could see the lessons were having an impact on their daughter, as she began spontaneously and repeatedly asking them why her identity as a girl was ‘not real.’ She asked if she could ‘go to a doctor’ about the fact that she was a girl. She said she was ‘not sure if she wanted to be a mommy,’” Kay explained.

Her parents became concerned about their daughter’s psychological well-being particularly because she had never shown signs of confusion about her identity prior to the introduction of these materials. They ultimately met with the teacher who was determined to continue teaching gender fluidity to the children; the teacher told them that “a change in society” had occurred thus necessitating the lessons and that they were official policy from the School Board. The teacher also reportedly confirmed to Buffone that the subject of sex change had come up for discussion.
