(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) The gay activists of Glendale, California, have been storming school board meetings to protest parent involvement in education, including a man dressed as a “gender unicorn,” the Daily Caller reported.
Glendale Unified School District members showed up to a school board meeting to protest a group of parents in opposition of teaching third-graders about sexual orientation and gender identity.
A parent told the Daily Caller that the protest was staged by a candidate for the GUSD board who has been endorsed by several other teachers unions.
Union members wore red to show their support for teaching gender ideology to all ages of school children. One man was dressed as the “gender unicorn.”
The parents who were protested had spoken out against Tammy Tiber, a teacher who reportedly shows students videos about LGBT ideology and made comments about nudity in the classroom.
Administrators were in support of Tiber’s teachings and, according to emails obtained by a public records request, encouraged her to continue.
One parent accused Tiber of being a “rogue” teacher and said the district was “pushing their political ideology on impressionable children.”
Activists also spoke at the meeting, saying they were “frightened” and claiming they felt “shaken” by the parents speaking out in defense of their children.
Student activists also spoke at the meeting, insisting gender ideology was a vital part of their education—particularly in elementary school.
“Please, stop playing politics with life,” one student said.
One activist gave parents the middle finger after speaking to the board.
Tiber also spoke at the meeting, wearing a “Love Out Loud” shirt and claiming to be a victim.
She also admitted to using teaching materials provided by the leftist Southern Poverty Law Center‘s educational wing, called Learning for Justice.
Many parents walked away feeling disrespected by the board. One parent, Annie Ayrapetyan, said that board member Jennifer Freemon left the meeting when concerned parents started to speak, then later chastised the parents.
“The core concern parents expressed at the last school board meeting was that their third-graders were shown grossly inappropriate videos which contained sexual content and were not within the bounds of approved curriculum,” Ayrapetyan said.
“This is completely unacceptable behavior,” Ayrapetyan continued. “Parents feel not only disrespected, but very defeated and voiceless in regards to their children’s education.”
