Parents in Beaverton, OR, are expressing outrage after it was revealed their children’s school is offering a “Genders and Sexualities Club” to students as young as nine-years-old.
“These kids are far too young to be worrying about the subject at school,” one parent told the Beaverton school board in a recent Zoom meeting, adding “They should be learning about different lifestyles with their parents, as is their right.”
“Why would they have these elementary students sign contracts without parental knowledge and consent?” asked another parent.
A third parent claimed, “You cannot tell me that Raleigh Hills is being run, this club is being run, by students. This club is very clearly directed by staff.”
Qisha King, co-chair of Moms for Liberty, joined ‘Fox & Friends Weekend’ co-host Pete Hegseth Thursday, from the Fox Nation Miseducation of America Summit in Virginia, with her reaction to the disturbing claims.
“It’s not only that the teachers don’t seem to see anything wrong with it, but the entire district does not seem to see anything wrong with it,” King said of the controversial club. “I think this further goes to show we are right in standing up. We are right in continuing to fight [against] this. We are right to say ‘no.'”
Raleigh Hills Elementary offered the club to students in the fourth and fifth grades without bothering to notify parents of its existence.
“This is tantamount to grooming,” King said. “If we saw this in any other circumstance, I think we would all say, ‘No, you can’t show these kind of things to our nine- and ten-year-olds.’ We would want to call the police in some instances.”
The school in question has reportedly claimed parents are not required to be notified, as the club meets during class time.
“It’s the Terry McAuliffe mindset [that says,] ‘parents, you birthed them, you shelter them, you clothe them, when they are in our care, we will take it from there.'” King continued, referring to the former Virginia governor’s claim that parents should not have a say in what their children are taught in school. “Parents all across the country… are saying, absolutely, no. Not only do we birth our own children, but we get to say what they should have, what they should be taught, and how their day should go in a classroom setting. Just because I send them off to camp, does that mean that I don’t get to have a say in what they are doing when they go to camp? No. I have a say in everything they do, because I am their parent.”
King hopes to empower more parents to speak out against divisive and inappropriate school programs.
“My message,” King stated, “is that parents have the right, and you don’t have to be afraid to speak against things like Critical Race Theory. You don’t have to be afraid to speak against things like ‘queer theory,’ which is another thing creeping in, which is tied to instances [like the one] we just saw in Beaverton.”
