Austin-area taxpayer-funded teacher Lisa Pilgrim is only the latest public school official to promote hazardous LGBT sexual behaviors—and mutilation experiments—to young Texans.

Pilgrim, a kindergarten deaf education teacher in the already scandal-plagued Round Rock Independent School District, recently posted about a Texas teenage girl who is planning to have her breasts surgically cut off because she is currently pretending to be a male. Pilgrim applauded the decision and wanted to help fund the operation.

“Help Eli get his top surgery–let’s get this funded!!” Pilgrim wrote.

“Keep coming through for this sweet kiddo, please!” Pilgrim posted separately to again promote the girl’s surgery fundraiser.

The disfiguring operations, which also include cutting off and mutilating healthy genitalia or administering sterilizing cross-sex hormones and puberty blocker drugs, were highlighted in Texas with the internationally known child abuse case of Dallas-area 9-year-old James Younger. James’ mother told him he was a girl and wanted to force him—against his father’s wishes—to go through such procedures and eventually be castrated.

On Monday, after news and satire website Current Revolt first posted a story of Pilgrim’s comments, the teacher responded defiantly in support of such operations.

“Because it’s gotten some unwanted attention, I’m going to share this again. Eli is an adult, and has never been my student. Gender affirming care is life saving medical care, it’s not up for debate,” Pilgrim tweeted.

In numerous other tweets, Pilgrim lamented and criticized multiple states’ legislatures and officials for trying to protect children from the experimentation.

Texas Scorecard recently chronicled the related issue of public schools, where taxpayer-funded officials across the state are endorsing hazardous sexual behaviors and gender confusion to kids and offering sexually explicit books in their school libraries.

Meanwhile, LGBT ideology continues to wreak havoc on youth and adults.

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.

Additionally, long-term follow-up studies have shown that those who permanently mutilate their bodies in a “sex-reassignment surgery” are 20 times more likely to kill themselves.

“Persons with transsexualism, after sex reassignment, have considerably higher risks for mortality, suicidal behaviour, and psychiatric morbidity than the general population,” read one 2011 study.

In Texas, citizens and pro-family organizations are again exhorting Gov. Greg Abbott to reconvene the state Legislature and finally enact a law to ban such operations on minors across the state, as well as reform the public education system that is currently failing to teach even the basics of math and reading.

Meanwhile, Arkansas, Alabama, and Tennessee have already passed similar child protection laws, and Idaho and other states’ legislatures are considering proposals.

As citizens, we have failed to inspire sufficient fear in our elected servants.
