Lunchtime Lectures on Gender Affirming Care in Schools: Why No Parental Consent??

How is it that professional organizations (psychologists) pushing gender-affirming care are allowed to speak with kids at school without parental consent? According to a mother in Texas a psychologist spoke on April 11 in front of high school students at lunch in celebration of "kindess week." The child in question is autistic and has ADD, according to his mother. Studies show autistic kids are more likely to be pushed toward gender-altering surgeries and hormone treatments by professionals and peers due to a variety of factors. It is therefore completely understandable that the mother would want transparency from the school district.

Here is what happened. Dr. Sara Ansboro, a licensed psychologist, was hired to speak at a high school in Boerne, Texas. She allegedly spoke about gender identity, resistance from Christians to support the LGBTQ community, and gender-altering hormone therapies (chemical castration). Word got around and the child was, according to the reporter who shared the incident, "bullied by students, and called a bigot and transphobe by the same club members who told him he was in a "safe place." The mother spoke up at a school board meeting to protect her 16-year-old autistic boy. The video speaks for itself:

This mother asks questions every parent should ask. Schools should not subject minors to lectures like these without parental consent. Listen to your children and do not be afraid to challenge school policies that deny parental consent for content that is not directly related to published school curricula. Agendas associated with Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) have no place in schools. School counselors are targeting children across America, some without clear parental consent.
