Georgia 4th graders shown video about dog who thinks he's a cat to promote LGBTQ lifestyles: report

The videos paid for by Canada's Trudeau government to help teachers indoctrinate students into gender ideology and adult sexual lifestyles have made their way down to Georgia.

A 4th grade class at a Georgia elementary school was reportedly shown an episode of a children's show in which a dog believed himself to be a cat, and the other playground animals were encouraged to go along with the creature's delusion. Libs of TikTok shared the video to X, saying that it was shown to students.

The group that made the video encourages LGBTQ activism for students, promotes Pride parades and festivals for kids, and has brought their programming to libraries to do live shows for children. The shows were created in 2017 and are apparently still in circulation in schools. That was part of the plan. When they were made, an organizer of the project said that the local Thames Valley District School Board would make use of them.

"Teachers can use them to support the start of a conversation in their classroom and they're a free resource for families," said organizer Paula Jesty. Now, the videos paid for by Canada's Trudeau government to help teachers indoctrinate students into gender ideology and adult sexual lifestyles have made their way down to Georgia.

The creator of show, puppeteer Frank Meschkuleit, said that "Somehow puppets are able to gently pry open that door and allow communication to begin. Our hope is that enough kids and their families see this so that there can be dialogue and that's the beginning of all good change." Meschkuleit voices Gulliver, the dog.

In the episode of Pride Understanding reportedly given to the Georgia students, a Canadian puppet-based children's program intended "to create communication tools to increase Gender Diversity Literacy," a dog called Gulliver is confused when a dog named Barry arrives at school and behaves like a cat. The episode is part of Pride Understanding's catalogue on "acceptance and understanding."

"Puppets are a great bridge for that because obviously they're already different," said Meschkuleit. "Using the puppet is a very effective way to get people to open their minds and listen." And the goal was to get these videos into grade schools. 

Another episode shows a bunny revealing that her dad is now her mom and explaining that that babies can be born in the wrong body. The bunny says that trans is a condition where a person's brain and body don't match. They simply the information for children using paper dolls.

"I remember when I was in [grade] school. There wasn't much acknowledgement about the LGBTQ community and I know that causes a lot of problems," director Nicole Coenen said. "The videos give students that acknowledgement like 'we understand you, we know that you're there.' So you can feel more included and know that we belong. It starts a conversation [and] that's the main point. We want people to know that it's OK to ask questions about these things."

Pride Understanding has many other videos for children, not only on acceptance and understanding but on "transgender/pronoun," "same sex marriage," and "how to be an ally." Barry, a dog who thinks he is a cat and is featured in the episode allegedly shown to the Georgia students, also has attended the Pride festival in London, Ontario. At Pride, he went to a nightclub where he danced the night away.

In the episode uncovered by Libs of TikTok, Gulliver is stoked to meet Barry, saying that "we could use another dog." Barry, who wears a rainbow collar, prefers playing with yarn, cleaning his paws like a cat does, and practicing purring and meowing. Gulliver is just confused, although his friend the rooster is totally cool with Barry's identity and behaviors.

Gulliver heads off to the teacher and says "we've got to talk," explaining that Barry "thinks he's a cat." The teacher is aghast, taking issue with Gulliver instead.

"Gulliver, you're really struggling with this," she tells the perplexed pup. "I couldn't ask Barry to change who he is, that would make him really sad."

And then the teacher delivers the big lesson: "accepting people for who they are is a very important skill. We accept you for who you are."

Gulliver is still not down with the dog who acts like a cat, saying "That's different, I'm a dog who acts like a dog. That's normal."

"Not normal," the teacher says, "just more common." She says "it's okay to have questions, questions are good if they help you to accept someone for who they are."

Pride Understanding said they "believe in the art of storytelling to start a conversation," which is clearly a mission reflected in the conversation between teacher and dog puppet. The stories, Pride Understanding said, "have been developed to increase awareness, understanding, and decrease stigma; giving families, schools and caregivers the tools to create a safe environment to ask questions and start a discussion."

The program is funded by the nation of Canada, PFLAG Canada of London, Ontario, the United Way, Optimist International, the Thames Valey District School Board, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, and the Pride London Festival.
