A new Netflix series for children features a transgender character, in what some say amounts to propaganda that deliberately confuses kids.

“The Baby-Sitters Club” is based on the popular collection of Scholastic books and is rated G. The stories center around a group of adolescent girls who start a babysitting business. In the fourth episode of the series, one of the five babysitters, Mary Anne, is asked to care for a child named Bailey, who presented as a girl but is biologically male, reports say.

“Those are my old clothes,” Bailey tells Mary Anne in one scene.

Mary Anne subsequently informs viewers: “That’s when I understood: Bailey was a little girl and her new clothes help people see it.”

Moments after Mary Anne realizes Bailey is a boy, the episode pivots, showing Mary Anne speaking with a friend, Dawn, whose father is homosexual and compares being transgender to being right or left-handed.

“[I]f someone tried to make you do everything with your left hand, it would be super-weird, right?” Dawn explains to Bailey.

Dawn continues: “That’s how Bailey feels. The same way that you know that you’re right-handed, Bailey knows she’s a girl … We all want our outsides to match our insides.”
