I AM PREDICTING THE RISE OF A NEW, PREVIOUSLY UNTAPPED SOCIAL FORCE IN AMERICA IN THE NEXT FEW YEARS. Let us call this force, “Grandfathers United.” This is a large group of men counting in the millions who are well established, secure in their positions in life, have a lot of time on their hands, and are willing to give up everything to protect their grandchildren. Cross-dressing picture book allegedly a class assignment in Kansas City-area preschool, sending grandfather into battle
A children’s book promoting cross-dressing was handed out this week to a 4-year-old’s Kansas City-area preschool class, according to the girl’s livid grandfather.
“This is what my granddaughter’s teacher sent home today with all the kids,” Jim Clay of Kansas City, Kansas, wrote on Facebook Monday night of the picture book Jacob’s New Dress. He wrote that his granddaughter is 4-and-a-half and he is peeved.
The incident occurred at Turner Elementary School. Clay’s post, which is not public, was reposted on several conservative Facebook pages in the area.
Clay told The Lion that apparently all the kids in the class had been given the book with instructions to read it with their parents and then be prepared to discuss it in class.
The bizarre choice of books might help explain some of his granddaughter’s strange questions of late, Clay said.
“We had started to see some little questions that she was coming home with. Here about a week and a half ago she had come home and asked her mom if her brother would always be her little brother, or would he be her little sister,” Clay said.
The grandfather said he doesn’t know if the book assignment was the teacher’s decision or the school district’s, but he intends to find out. The book has also been a point of controversy for being read to kindergartners in Lawrence Township Public Schools in New Jersey.
“I’m not necessarily a crusader so much. I don’t know if God’s called me to be a crusader,” Clay said. “But at least for my own granddaughter I want to be able to have the option to keep her home on [book discussion] day if her parents are OK with it. I don’t think this should be, obviously, any kind of a subject for a school to be speaking about.
“The sexualization of our children in society today is just disgusting. The grooming that’s taking place is disgusting.
“My kids used to dress up like Power Rangers when they were kids, and we’d pretend that they were a Power Ranger with them. I’m not interested in pretending that guys are girls and girls are guys.
