Schools in the United Kingdom are beginning to hand out pamphlets on “gender diversity” to various elementary schools.
The booklet, “Can I Tell You About Gender Diversity?” will be provided to children as young as seven years old, reports The Washington Times.
The book provides information on a variety of “medical re-assignment” topics such as hormone blockers, gender dysphoria and how to use the correct pronouns. The 60-page booklet is one of many in the “Can I Tell You About” series that covers a host of issues, including eating disorders, depression and autism.
“My name is Kit and I’m 12 years old. I live in a house with my mum and dad, and our dog, Pickle. When I was born, the doctors told my mum and dad that they had a baby girl, and so for the first few years of my life that’s how my parents raised me,” the book begins. “This is called being assigned female at birth. I wasn’t ever very happy that way.”
Outrage ensued over the idea of young children learning about gender identity. One columnist wrote that it was time to end the “nonsense.”
