Touching Yourself: SPLC Wants 2 Year Olds To Know They Are Transgender

  • The Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) project, Learning for Justice, promoted an explicit sex education book for elementary school students in a guide to teachers.
  • A Twitter user purchased the book and proceeded to document the mature content featured between the covers. One section of the book is titled “touching yourself.” It even includes an illustration of a girl in a bathtub.
  • Learning for Justice guide tells educators that the claim “students are too young to know their gender identity or sexual orientation” is a “myth” and instead argues that “children often know their gender as early as 2 or 3 years old.”
