The instructor of a first-grade class in Bellingham, Washington, wanted to teach her students about the importance of transgenderism by reading them “I Am Jazz,” a novel about a two-year-old biological male transitioning to a female.
Jennifer Miller, a first-grade teacher in the Bellingham School District, was approached by one disgruntled parent, who asked in an email, “Did you read this book to 1st graders today?” according to Kara Zupkus of Young America’s Foundation.
Miller retorted defiantly, “Yes, I did read this book. As a district, we are working hard to support all members of our school community and promote inclusion through understanding and compassion.” Zupkus reported, “Concerned parents reached out to school administrators and the school board, both of whom refused to take action.”
“From the time she was two years old, Jazz knew that she had a girl’s brain in a boy’s body. She loved pink and dressing up as a mermaid and didn’t feel like herself in boys’ clothing. This confused her family, until they took her to a doctor who said that Jazz was transgender and that she was born that way,” The overview for the book “I Am Jazz” states.
Jennifer Mason, the president of the Bellingham School Board, owns and operates WinkWink, a sex boutique in downtown Bellingham that is a “gender-inclusive, woman-owned, all-ages sex shop,” according to The Western Front.
The store allegedly offered courses on subjects ranging from “Intro to Vibrators” to “Butt Stuff Basics.” Mason boasted, “Many of us become adults that are still lacking in the language and information to have the type of sex life that we’d like to have. The classes are really to help broaden people’s understanding and skills,” adding, “I’ve always done important work, but I really wanted to do something that was important and fun. There are few things more fun than getting to talk to people about sex all day.”
Mason stated,“I am a lifelong feminist and all of the work that I have ever done has been focused on people who have been marginalized,” “I’m always going to do my best to center marginalized people. “All of us need to have our eyes wide open about the ways that conservatives want to legislate, our bodies and that their actions will impact the people who are already more marginalized.”
Zupkus wrote, “Mason, who has held her presidential position since 2017, was approached by concerned parents about pushing transgenderism on their first-grade children. She did not provide a response to their concerns,” “An angry parent went so far as reaching out to Bellingham Public Schools, Superintendent, Greg Baker, with his concerns. Baker refused to engage over email with the parent, and instead requested a phone call–but shut down the idea once the parent asked if he could record the call.”
