The American Girl brand is doling out advice about how young children can obtain puberty blockers without parental permission, while conservative actor Kirk Cameron is being rejected from promoting his new faith-based children’s book by public libraries across the country.
The Mattel owned doll brand released the 96-page book, “A Smart Girl’s Guide: Body Image, in early November.
The guide, which is labeled appropriate for ages 3-12, teaches young children about gender identity, gender expression, pronouns, puberty blockers, and how to seek gender care without the knowledge of their parents.
In a passage titled “Gender Joy,” the book educates children that gender expression is how they show the world their gender through the types of clothes they wear and behaviors they exhibit.
“Your gender expression can be feminine, masculine, or somewhere in between – and it might change!” the page reads according to the Daily Mail.
It teaches them that they can experiment with bright dresses and “feminine hairstyles,” or conversely rock a buzzed haircut, baggy shorts, and plaid shirts.
“Your gender expression should make you feel at home in your body,” the book encourages.
When tackling gender identity, which the book defines as “how you feel on the inside – a girl, a boy, or someone who doesn’t quite fit into either category,” the passage explains doctors assign sex at birth when they look at an infant’s body parts.
“A kid who was assigned as male might know herself to be a girl inside, for example,” the book continues. “Someone whose gender is different than the sex they were assigned at birth is transgender.”
The writer also explained the meaning of cisgender, nonbinary, and detailed the use of pronouns.
“Being transgender is not an illness of something to be ashamed of,” the next page reads. “If you’re questioning your gender identity – or if you already know for sure that you’re trans or nonbinary – talk to an adult you trust like a parent or school counselor.”
The book details how the child can be connected with a doctor that will advise them on using the pronouns and wearing the clothes that make the minor child “feel most like the true you.”
If they haven’t hit puberty yet, which the majority of the book’s targeted demographic has not, the book advises them about the use of puberty blockers.
“The doctor might offer you medicine to delay your body’s changes, giving you more time to think about your gender identity,” the passage reads.
Even if the reader has progressed through puberty, a doctor can still help, according to the writer.
“Studies show that transgender and nonbinary kids who get help from doctors have much better mental health than those who don’t,” American Girl advises sagely.
If they child’s parents don’t agree with their gender identity, the brand offers a helpful resource page for the minor to get treatment without the knowledge of their family.
“If you don’t have an adult you trust, there are organizations across the country that can help you,” the book details.
Social media is calling for boycotts of the once beloved and overpriced doll brand.
“[American Girl]what’s up with this? Are you advising young girls to keep secrets from their parents? That’s not so smart,” someone tweeted. “A smart move for you is to stick with selling dolls—hands off our girls.”
“American Girl used to celebrate American womanhood,” one person wrote. “Now, it’s teaching little girls how to prevent womanhood.”
“Parents should know that American Girl guide books — which used to be pretty good — now promote dangerous gender ideology to little girls as young as 3,” another added. “If you love your daughters, protect your daughters by avoiding this company.”
While American Girl is putting sales in jeopardy this holiday season, conservative actor Kirk Cameron is already on American public libraries’ naughty list.
Cameron wrote a children’s book that “celebrates family, faith, and biblical wisdom,” according to Fox News Digital, but more than 50 libraries across the country have refused to allow him to read it during their story-hour, despite letting drag queens present their books through the program.
His publisher, Brave Books, said many of the story-hour rejections responses cited that their programs are “queer friendly,” “focusing on racial equality,” and “richly diverse.”
“This is proof that more than ever, we are getting destroyed in the battle for the hearts and minds of our children,” Cameron said.
“Publicly funded libraries are green-lighting ‘gender marker and name change clinics’ while denying a story time that would involve the reading of a book that teaches biblical wisdom,” he questioned. “How much more clear can it get?”
We have to start fighting back, or we will lose our kids and this country,” the former “Growing Pains” star concluded.
