The preschool teacher told students she was ‘non-binary’ and used ‘they/them pronouns.’
‘It’s just like [I’m] not understanding why [my daughter] is always like constantly drilling me about it, letting you know she’s a girl, defending it almost,’ a mother tells Campus Reform.
Texas mom Jennifer Cains told Campus Reform that she unenrolled her daughter from the University of North Texas (UNT) College of Education’s Center for Young Children (CYC) after learning that teachers were allegedly pushing gender theory and pronouns in a classroom full of four-year-olds.
The CYC is an “early childhood program within the College of Education” at UNT. The center describes itself as a “research-based, high-quality preschool program” used to give UNT’s college trainees experience and provide “care and education” for its young students.
Cains told Campus Reform her four-year-old daughter had recently been talking a lot about gender, “She’s really taken this firm stand on, Mama, I am a girl, my friends are girls, and I only want to play with girls.”
Cains continued, “And I’m like that’s fine, you know, we can have lots of friends… It’s just like [I’m] not understanding why she is always like constantly drilling me about it…letting you know she’s a girl…defending it almost.”
She said her daughter later revealed she was learning pronouns in school. One day she came home and asked, “Mom, what is non-binary?”
