A woke teacher who identifies as ‘trans demi-boy non-binary’ teaches children about gender and pronouns using ‘gender-fluid’ stuffed unicorns and narwhals.

Skye Tooley told TikTok followers how fifth graders at Saturn Street Elementary in LA are taught using the bizarre methods.

Tooley told the 13,000 people who follow him there are ‘many more genders out there in the universe’ – using a stuffed toy to demonstrate.

In one segment, the teacher says: ‘This is a lama unicorn… I thought it was so cute to let my kids name the llama unicorn.

‘It was a mistake. So this little llama is gender-fluid; we will be practicing pronouns with this little llama.

‘[Children] are very much ready for these topics and are way more accepting than adults when it comes to discussing these topics and talk about gender, gender assumptions, pronouns, all the things.

‘And it is child development appropriate and age appropriate,’ the teacher, insisted while writing various pronouns on a classroom flip chart.

Tooley tried to explain the subject using a stuffed narwhal toy that apparently had they/them pronouns.

‘I started talking [to students] about Norbert the Narwhal … who uses they/them pronouns, and we practice making mistakes with their pronouns as well as correcting them.’

The school appear to be perfectly comfortable the methods, with a description of the Tooley’s philosophy appearing on the school’s website.

‘I diligently push to create a safe space and brave space for my students. We work on being uncomfortable, challenged, and communicating. We work to understand our identity, bias, and privilege,’ Tooley said.

The Saturn Street Elementary school appears progressive and even has a ‘rainbow club’, which Tooley hopes will be extended towards even younger students.

‘The rainbow club is effectively a GSA for elementary… One wonderful thing about the rainbow club is talking about different identities, talking about who we are, and talking about how to support the LGBTQ+ community.

‘Students may not necessarily be out, but they are excited to learn and help others,’ Tooley said.

Tooley makes it very clear what pronouns they prefer to be addressed by 

Tooley defends the introduction to the topic of gender at such a young age by suggesting the children need such lessons to help with their development.

‘I realized so many of my students were already looking at themselves and at their bodies and even at their gender negatively.

‘All of this to say that the gender binary is constantly harming us day to day. Only a few people gain power from it.

‘Everyone else is trying to conform to the societal norms. This harm, as we’re already seeing, starts at a young age,’ Tooley claimed.

Tooley maintains that such discussions in the classroom are ‘developmentally appropriate, part of our curriculum because we know our gender at a young age, and we know our sexuality at a young age.’

Tooley, who has previously taught classes in third and fourth grade is keen for other teachers to follow his lead and tackle the issue of gender ideology

‘Educators specifically on the elementary side will be like, ‘Well, I can’t teach LGBTQ+ because they’re just not ready for that.…’ Our kids … are queer.

‘They’re questioning, they’re wondering. They want to see this. You should just be discussing it so that people know how to show respect and empathy.’
