A school board in West Chester, Pennsylvania has denied an offer by a local resident to share with teachers and students a glimpse of the lived experiences of someone who experienced gender transition.
Recently teachers at West Chester’s Fern Hill Elementary school "learned about gender" and how to incorporate gender ideology into their curriculum. Some who attended the training teach children as young as five.
On October 25th Mike Winterode, with the No Left Turn in Education Pennsylvania chapter, made a statement at his local school board meeting. He said that after reading the training "while some in attendance did learn strategies for introducing gender identity to kids who still believe in Santa Claus, they didn’t really learn about gender, and what happens once we get beyond name changes and pronouns."
He went on to describe some of the not so glamorous parts of transition. Such as how a double mastectomy takes away the ability to ever breastfeed a child, and how the use of puberty blockers can destroy the ability to orgasm as an adult. In his statement, Mr. Winterode made an offer to bring Transexual Content Creator Sara Higdon (me) and Detransitioner Chloe Cole to speak about the dangers of transitioning children; at no cost to the district.
Mr. Winterode noted the school can be one of the first in the country to take steps to get in front of the growing problem of children who were convinced they were trans, only to realize they made a mistake after irreversible harm was done. He warned that "the detransition community is growing and we need to listen to them, they have a lot to tell us." Two and a half weeks after the meeting, the West Chester School Board declined the offer for Chloe and Sara to give the other side of gender ideology, without a reason. Simply stating "no thank you."
Sara Higdon is a Transexual content creator who has been speaking out about the harms of teaching Queer Theory to children for over a year now. She has a number of articles on this topic published in this publication as well as Human Events. Chloe Cole is a Detransitioner who was medicalized with puberty blockers and testosterone at 13 and then had a double mastectomy at 15. Only to then detransition at 16. Recently Chloe announced on Tucker Carlson that she is filing a lawsuit against the doctors who did this for malpractice. Both have been traveling around the country speaking on the dangers of medicalizing children, and how doctors and activists are manipulating parents and children. Exposing the truth that puberty blockers are not "fully reversible" as health professionals claim.
In a statement to The Post Millennial, Yael Levin, Chief Data & Communications Officer for No Left Turn In Education asked "If the school district truly cared about educating and graduating critical thinkers, then why refuse bringing speakers to share their actual lived experiences with transgenderism with their students?"
The West Chester School Board made news recently after another resident, Connie Holloway, asked if the district policy was to hide a child's social transition from parents. As reported in a No Left Turn In Education press release on November 10th, the now Superintendent Dr. Bob Sokolowski admitted to keeping gender transitions a secret from parents. He admitted that as a principal he had a student who was uncomfortable with their parents knowing about their gender issues, and chose to keep it from the child's parents. As part of their Gender Support Plan, one of the first lines speaks about how "school-home communications will be handled." Sokolowski stated "we exclude those plans to the fullest protection of the students." Holloway finished her statement with "we are not co-parenting with the government." Pointing to the correlations between the Soviet Union and Communist China keeping secrets from parents.
Legislators across the country are beginning to take a stand against these practices. The Parents Choice in Education bill in Florida was passed partly in response to a child's attempted suicide, twice, after the school witheld information about the childs gender identity issues from parents. Tennessee Legislators proposed a bill to ban medical transition on minors. Governments around the world are changing their stances on "gender affirming care." People like Mr. Winterode believe that schools can get ahead of the 'coming storm' by listening to individuals like Chloe and Sara, who give a personal insight on the dangers of gender ideology.
