Austin’s school officials are dedicating an entire week to promote hazardous sexual behaviors and gender confusion to children—and they’re instructing the kids to keep quiet about some of the school activities.

“Respect privacy: ‘What we say in this room stays in this room,’” reads one proposed “PRIDE week” lesson plan for Doss Elementary School in Austin Independent School District. The activity is a teacher-led “community circles” conversation with kids about LGBT behaviors and is designed for pre-K through second grade (children as young as 4).

The plan also tells students in kindergarten through fifth grade to not repeat anything.

“Please remember that we agreed to keep what happened in this Circle confidential,” their group lesson reads.

The activity is part of Austin ISD’s districtwide “PRIDE week” from March 21-26, endorsing LGBT sexual conduct to school children and teaching them “trans” ideology—the idea that you can turn into whatever biological sex or creature you feel like.

“What would a teacher be discussing during pride week that she’s worried the kids will tell their parents?” tweeted citizen news page Libs of Tik Tok.

The account also posted screenshots of Doss Elementary Assistant Principal Hannah Wankel celebrating the “pride week,” a pride parade in the school, and Texas state law on the parental rights matter.

“Hi @PrincipalSteen, @hannah_wankel, and superintendent @AustinISDsupt- you might want to take a look at this,” Libs of Tik Tok wrote.

“(a) A parent is entitled to full information regarding the school activities of a parent’s child except as provided by section 38.004,” reads the Texas Education Code. “(b) An attempt by any school district employee to encourage or coerce a child to withhold information from the child’s parent is grounds for discipline under section 21.104, 21.156, 21.211, as applicable.”

“The only time people ask children to keep secrets is when they are doing something with or to children they know they are not supposed to be doing,” a citizen replied on social media.

Additionally, Texas Scorecard previously detailed some of the district’s recommended “PRIDE” lesson plans. One of these plans teaches children as young as 5 that they can be “trans” and “non-binary,” and another that advises teachers to tell kids, “Some people aren’t boys or girls, they’re just people.’”

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.

Outside the classroom, those ideas are wreaking havoc on children and adults across the state—such as 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 (a non-curable virus that develops into AIDS), more than 740,000 were men who had relations with men.

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