Case in point: A California school has set up a so-called "transition closet" full of clothing that students can change into, in order to match their chosen gender.
A high school in Oakland, California, is creating a “transition closet” that will allow students to come to school in clothes that their “parents approve of” and change into the clothing of their selected gender identities.
A Facebook post announcing this insanity notes: "We are extremely excited to begin our journey in working with Fremont Highschool [sic] of Oakland California … The near future holds transition closet(s) and services throughout the school district for students of the Trans/Nonbinary/Intersex and additional LGBTQIA+ Community Members."
Mind you, based on the reporting, parents have not approved of this -- it was literally done behind their backs. And while there will no doubt be some cowardly parents who will go along with this because they are afraid to speak out, others most certainly will. And they should; this is sanctioned child grooming and child abuse:
The Post Millennial reported that the concept emerged from Good Shepard Lutheran Church in Fayetteville, Arkansas, to help children experiment with transgenderism without their parents’ knowledge.
The Transition Closet is partnering with Thomas Martin-Edwards — a Spanish teacher at the Oakland Unified School District and founder of the Queer Teacher Fellowship — to launch the project. The social media account Teacher Exposed unearthed footage of the teacher discussing the initiative on TikTok.

“The goal of the transition closet is for our students to wear the clothes that their parents approve of, come to school and then swap out into the clothes that fit who they truly are,” Martin-Edwards said in the video.
“And I use the idea that this is like Superman changing in a phone booth. But that idea actually goes a lot further than that. Because Superman isn’t Clark Kent. Clark Kent is actually the disguise,” he claimed, using pop culture linguistical gymnastics to justify his lunacy.
“And when Clark Kent goes into the phone booth, he transforms into Superman, who is really just who he truly is, Kal-El. So this gives our trans students the opportunity to be the superheroes that we know they are," he added.
The Teachers Exposed account followed up its initial post with additional information that lays bare this diabolical plot to literally co-opt parents in an effort to harm as many young people mentally as possible.
Wow!!! For those who have been following this story, Mr. Martin-Edwards teaches @OUSDNews. He is a Spanish teacher and is teaming up with The Transition Closet. This organization claims that this will be the first school-based transition closet. pic.twitter.com/Pp7q7Dj8vI

"For all the trolls with anime profile pictures. It isn’t just that they are providing clothes in a secret manner which is still asinine. They are also giving students binders and tucking underwear which has lasting results," the account added in a post featuring a video providing evidence of its claims.

The Oakland example is not the first instance of this lunacy taking place in a public school in California.
California mother Jessica Konen, whose sixth-grade daughter was allegedly recruited by teachers and pushed to change her name to a that of a boy while being instructed not to inform her mother, is taking legal action against the Spreckels Union School District.
“Teachers encouraged Jessica Konen’s daughter to change her name to a boy’s name as an expression of her new identity and specifically instructed her not to tell her mother about her new identity because her mother couldn’t be ‘trusted.’ Then, they gave her articles — and required her to read them — on how to hide her transgenderism from her mother,” the Center for American Liberty, which is representing Konen, noted.
“Still without Jessica’s knowledge, teachers and administrators created a ‘Gender Support Plan instructing faculty to refer to her daughter by a new name, male pronouns, and to let her use the unisex teachers’ restroom," the legal group added.
The people who engage in this and who enable it are predators, period. They should be treated as such by the law.
