Austin’s school officials continue to face community backlash for their recent week-long celebration of harmful sexual behaviors and gender confusion.

The Situation

Texas Scorecard previously revealed Austin Independent School District’s “Pride Week,” held March 21-26, promoted LGBT sexual conduct to school children and taught them “trans” ideology—the idea that you can turn into whatever biological sex or creature you feel like.

Lesson plans included “Coming Out and Pronouns Days” for middle-schoolers, and teaching children as young as 5 that they can be “trans” and “non-binary.”

“Some people aren’t boys or girls, they’re just people,” one plan read.

Activities included “pride parades” in elementary school, “Queer Eye” TV show watch parties, and “community circles”— teacher-led conversations with kids about LGBT behaviors, where children as young as 4 were instructed to not repeat anything from the discussions. District officials later tried to walk back the instruction after the plans went viral online.

Meanwhile, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sent AISD officials a letter informing them they were violating state law. However, district spokesperson Cristina Nguyen said they have no plans to stop.

“If we have learned anything from all this, it’s that we need to double down even more to support our students that are facing all of this … politicization and hate speech,” Nguyen said.

“Pride Out”

To finish off the week, AISD hosted a districtwide party Saturday morning featuring scantily clad drag queen performances, “pride” paraphernalia (including “pronoun buttons”), and LGBT organization booths promoting even more deviant sexual behavior and gender confusion instruction in children’s school curriculums.

“It makes me so happy to see these kids living like this and their parents showing them the LGBTQ lifestyle at a young age,” said the party’s host drag queen, Diamond Dior Davenport.

Citizens also reacted.

“You never went to a party with clowns? This is the same, but instead of magic tricks they talk about their sex preferences,” tweeted one citizen.

“If kids are getting drag queens I think it’s only fair that they also get strippers,” wrote Jake Shields, former world champion Mixed Martial Arts fighter.

Austin ISD officials have also faced backlash for their controversial sex-ed curriculum in classrooms throughout the normal school year. As previously reported, that curriculum instructs the same ideologies and included role-playing scenarios for students that involve anal sex, oral sex, and a situation where an underage girl has a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old that she hides from her parents.

“Meanwhile, @AustinISD has some of the lowest reading and math proficiencies in Central Texas,” posted another citizen.

The Consequences

Outside the classroom, the LGBT ideology is wreaking havoc on children and adults across the state. This was seen in the case of 9-year-old Dallas-area boy James Younger, whose mother told him he was a girl and wanted to force him (against his father’s wishes) to take sterilizing cross-sex hormone drugs and eventually be castrated.

Furthermore, men who engage in homosexual activity are at a significantly high risk of contracting serious diseases. According to the CDC, of the 1.2 million Americans in 2018 who had HIV (an incurable virus that develops into AIDS), more than 740,000 were men who had relations with men.

Meanwhile, according to Texas Education Agency numbers, Austin ISD’s ability to teach math and reading to children—particularly economically disadvantaged kids—is failing.

“Why are you so desperate to talk to kids about sex and confuse them about their gender? It’s creepy,” wrote citizen news page Libs of Tik Tok.

“I guess teaching English and math are too much for this district,” another posted.
