According to Alabama State School Board Member Betty Peters, the Southern Poverty Law Center, a national hate-group watchdog, is distributing coloring sheets featuring different clothing items and asking children to color in which clothes they want to wear in an attempt to “Teach tolerance for transgenderism to four to eight year old’s.”
Southern Sun reported:
That Betty Peters has nothing good to say about Common Core standards is not a secret. The Alabama School Board District 2 member was clear in her opinion when she addressed members of the Coffee County Republican Women Oct. 21.
Before the Coffee County Republican Women, Peter preached the evils of Common Core which she said “homosexualists,” the federal government and the Southern Poverty Law Center, among others, are using to indoctrinate school children into all kinds of things, including the “gender fluid spectrum.”
“The Southern Poverty Law Center is going to be developing your children or grandchild or neighbors’ children into little social activists for social justice, as they define it, or else transgender stuff,” Peters said.
“This is part of teaching tolerance for transgenderism to four to eight year olds,” Peters said. “The students are given color crayons and two handouts. They students are supposed to color the photos of the clothes they want to wear.
“You will notice these are called outfits,” Peters said. “I have never asked my son or my husband what ‘outfit’ they are going to wear. This is just crazy. I think all this stuff is mainly written by whacky feminists.
“When you start complaining about this, the first thing you are going to hear is ‘that’s not part of Common Core,’” Peters said. “No, it’s not but it is aligned with it and it is allowed to be part of Common Core because it is informational text and teaching tolerance.”
