Transgender book readings scheduled in Virginia elementary schools

The normalization of the transgender agenda hits public schools in Virginia and other states this week. Activists in the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and the National Education Association (NEA) team up to encourage a day set aside to celebrate transgenderism. Volunteers will read three books chosen to help young children understand a very adult topic.


The event is called Jazz & Friends National Day of School & Community readings. The three books chosen for this year’s indoctrination are: “Julian is a Mermaid”, “I am Jazz”, and “They She He Me: Free to Be!” Family Research Council (FRC) is encouraging parents to keep their children home from school. There is a post on FRC’s website that suggests it may be a good day to take children to a museum or some such activity instead of attending school.

Do you want your child to be psychologically manipulated at school on Thursday? Might be a good day for a Mommy Date at the museum!

The anti-Christian Human Rights Campaign and their pals at the powerful National Education Association are pushing public schools to recognize this Thursday as “Jazz and Friends National Day of School & Community Readings.”

One of the books they are promoting is I Am Jazz, a transgender propaganda book designed for children. It is based on the real-life story of “Jazz,” a child who was convinced that he was born in the wrong body. As a child he was injected with hormones to block his normal sexual development, and recently he had radical surgery to complete his “transition” to another sex. Which, of course, is impossible.

Activists groups are trying to make the reading of this book an annual event.

The day will be used to promote gender deviance and LGBT politics to vulnerable children. Not all schools are doing it. Yet. But some are.

In one Arlington, Va. school, “mystery readers” are scheduled to come and read to the children. The school has not revealed to parents who they are and what they will read. Wow.


There is an opt-out option, using a National Opt-Out Letter, provided by the Arlington Parent Coalition. The organization released a statement, part of which reads as follows:

The Arlington Parent Coalition recommends that if parents are not comfortable with children being taught that biology has no bearing on one’s sex, and that “anyone can be anything,” and that “God makes mistakes sometimes,” and that “you may not be the gender your parents said you are,” parents might want to have their children take a sick day on Thursday, February 27, 2020.

If you have not yet submitted a Universal Opt-Out Letter to prevent your child from receiving lessons around this kind of dangerous nonsense, we recommend that you do so immediately. If you have submitted an opt-out, your child should not be exposed to this cause célèbre on February 27 or any other day.

However, in our experience Arlington Public Schools remains consistently unconcerned with either parental permission or children’s protections. So please plan accordingly on Thursday.

The event this year includes the story of Jazz Jennings, a reality television star. “I am Jazz” is her story. She was born a boy and by the age of three, she told her parents she was a girl living in a boy’s body. Since then, her parents and family embraced life with a transgender child. She is a celebrity in the LGBTQ community. I know her story because I have covered the family’s reality show on TLC for NewsBusters the last several years. (Jennings is not their real name.) Last season was all about her big surgery. A celebration of the surgery included a “Farewell to Penis” party. That surgery, by the way, has led to complications that have required additional surgeries. Human biology is real, no matter the feelings around it.


Make no mistake about the transgender agenda – it is political. The push to indoctrinate children, even elementary school-aged children, is real. Jazz’s book is written in the voice of a four-year-old child. The gender-is-fluid crowd is relentless in promoting their agenda and people who think that the subject falls within the mental health area are mocked and canceled.

When I watch Jazz’s show, I find it both depressing and distressing. Her mom is completely on board, as are her siblings. Her father is more hesitant but does go along with the whole thing. It is as though the whole family’s life revolves around one young person’s sexual identity. The show has been broadcast on TLC for several years. Jazz has monetized social media and written books. The reality show alone provides some income, too. It all seems very exploitative. She has been admitted to Harvard University – did her celebrity play a part in that decision?

Jazz and her mother are very active in promoting the LGBTQ agenda. It is no surprise to me that incorporating her book into a story-reading event for school children is happening. Apparently this is the fifth year for a day designated for reading about transgenderism in schools. The Family Research Council is getting the word out and letting parents know that there is an option to opt-out.
