Journalism prof urges parents to expose their children to pictures of naked adults to prep them for seeing naked trans people in bathrooms, locker rooms

Thieme said it was one of her "all time excellent parenting ideas."

An assistant professor at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver has faced backlash for suggesting that parents should expose their children to adults' genitals. Katja Thieme, who teaches a number of courses in the writing department, shared what she referred to as one of her "all time excellent parenting ideas" in a thread responding to testimony by women's sports advocate Riley Gaines.

In the clip, Gaines described what it was like to have to compete against biological males, and expressed her frustration over having to see naked men in the women's locker room without her consent.

The original tweet was sent out on July 10, and while Thieme has since locked her account, screenshots have immortalized her words for all to see.

"Hey, want to know one of my all time excellent parenting ideas?" the tweet read. "Let. Little. Children. See. Penises. And. Vulvas. Of. Various. Ages. And. Sizes. In. A. Casual. Normalized. Totally. Safe. Way."

"The world will thank you for it," Thieme added. "And so will those children when they grow up."

She went on to attack Gaines personally, saying, "Just imagine if the Riley Gaines' of this society could totally keep their cool at the sight of a trans dick. And just imagine if Riley Gaines' parents were like, yeah, that happens, it's okay, now let's talk about your upcoming training schedule."

The NCAA swimmer clapped back at Thieme, saying she was "deranged" and "should be in prison."

Thieme, originally from East Germany, recently revealed that she had written a book with trans-identifying biological male professor Mary Ann Saunders, one chapter of which "focuses on two recent children's novels that centre the voices and needs of 'pre-adolescent youth'." The two professors dissected the texts, analyzing the word choice and message.

During a 2020 panel hosted by UBC's "Students Against Bigotry" club, Thieme argued against having widespread freedom of speech on campus, suggesting speakers should be limited to those who "contribute to learning and knowledge making."

Among the list of speakers she deemed to be unacceptable was Andy Ngo. The journalist had been invited by the UBC Free Speech Club to speak about left-wing violence, but was eventually turned away by school administrators.
