An alleged teacher claiming to be “non-binary” gushed in a video posted to the Twitter account of Libs of TikTok that two of her students, including one first-grader, “came out as trans” to her after she read a book to her class that pushes gender ideology and pronoun usage to very young children.
“[I]t was such beautiful proof that kids of any age are absolutely capable of accepting anything that they are taught with love,” the teacher touted.

Having apparently recorded her video on a day radical LGBTQ activists call the Transgender Day of Visibility – which Joe Biden and the White House recognized on March 30 – the teacher spoke about the day’s significance to her.
“I’ve been wanting to do content around this day which is really important to me as this is my first year I’m out as a non-binary teacher,” the teacher begins, claiming she finds it difficult to talk about the day in a “pithy” and “catchy” way.
After sending a “vulnerable email” to her colleagues, offering to visit their classrooms to discuss what the day is about, the teacher says in the video she is “so grateful to the three allies or accomplices who invited me into their class today to read.”
“I just read They, She, He, Me: Free to Be to a grade one class … and one of the students came out as trans,” the teacher boasts.
“Staff knew she was trans and we talked to her parents last night about me coming in,” the teacher says, emphasizing, “And then given that the go-ahead, and it was such beautiful proof that kids of any age are absolutely capable of accepting anything that they are taught with love.”

“[H]er class didn’t bat an eyelid, didn’t bat an eyelid at me not being a man, woman, both, or neither,” the teacher touts. “Didn’t bat an eyelid at her having been born a boy and were able to make all kinds of beautiful personal connections.”
“So, please, no matter what age your kids are, or what age you teach, it is so important that you teach them that trans people are valuable,” she pleads in the video.
Following a reading session with another class, the teacher apparently returned to her video recording.
“I just wanted to say it’s been such a powerful day,” she gushes again. “I had another student come see me and make a plan to come out to his class because she hadn’t felt confident doing that yet. And so that was really exciting. To see that happen and to be able to facilitate that.”
The video drew a number of responses from other Twitter users:
Did anyone come out as Batman or Superman?

Look I thought I was an astronaut when I was in the 1st grade. That didn't happen. I love how they feel kids parroting things is them 'coming out'.
