A North Carolina school district’s pro-LGBT character the “gender unicorn” is being used for a training session in which faculty are told parental involvement may not be required for students struggling with gender identity issues.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools had recently approved measures to allow transgender students access to the public facilities of their choice, in defiance of state law, before backing off for now.
Included in their plans for the new measures was a recently released training presentation for faculty that featured the “gender unicorn” character.
The training presentation suggests that the degree of parental involvement in the plan will be determined in part by the student.
“Involvement of parents in the plan is determined in working with the student, considering the student’s age and health, wellbeing and safety concerns,” the training states, according to keepmyncsafe.com.
In a Facebook message posted Friday, Rev. Graham denounced the school district character, calling it an effort “to try to brainwash our children into accepting that homosexuality and transgender behavior is okay.”
“Parents, watch out. They are using this unicorn to grab the imagination of children and make this seem acceptable,” wrote Graham.
“The Communists used brainwashing in Eastern Europe and Russia, and they took the parents out of the decision-making process and the state began to make decisions about morality. This is a dangerous path.”
Graham went on to denounce the transgender policy of Charlotte-Mecklenburg and called for action regarding the school board’s meeting next week.
