(Chris Parker, Headline USA) As more parents join the growing trend of fighting against woke and sexualized lessons in schools, the mainstream media is ramping up its efforts to push a far-Left agenda on children.
The latest attack comes from CBS News running a report that accused concerned parents of “book banning” after they opposed books exposing children to pornography and encouraging gender dysphoria, reported Rebel News.
“Book banning in schools and libraries gains momentum,” reads the report’s stilted headline. It focused on the recent success of parents in Jamestown, Michigan, in pulling explicit content that was being promoted to children.
One of the “banned” books, Gender Queer, features depictions of minors having sex. It was also promoted among children.
Larry Walton, the library board’s eccentric president and LGBT activist supporter, also accused his community of becoming antiquated.
“I feel liked we’ve kind of stepped back in time, talking about book banning,” he said frantically. He also called it censorship and “heartbreaking.”
The report did feature one parent shedding light on their actual intentions during a town hall meeting in Jamestown.
“These books and lifestyle choices are disturbing and wrong,” said one mother.
“We don’t want any sexually or violently graphic material on display for kids to see when they come in the library,” another resident said.
Despite clear indications that the parents opposed promoting graphic materials to children, the reporter accused conservatives of a successful drive to “essentially defund the library.”
Florida Health published a report on the “evidence” used to support gender dysphoria lesson plans. They confirmed that “studies presenting the benefits to mental health, including those claiming that the services prevent suicide, are either low or very low quality and rely on unreliable methods such as surveys and retrospective analyses, both of which are cross-sectional and highly biased.”
“Systematic reviews on hormonal treatment for young people show a trend of fact sheet low-quality evidence, small sample sizes, and medium to high risk of bias,” it went on to say.
