WAKE COUNTY, North Carolina (LifeSiteNews) – A North Carolina preschool has stopped using pro-LGBT flashcards to teach children colors after backlash from a concerned parent.
The parent contacted Republican North Carolina state representative Erin Paré about the flashcards used by a teacher at Ballentine Elementary School in Wake County.
“I am grateful that a concerned constituent reached out and that this issue is being addressed in a swift and professional manner by Ballentine Elementary School,” Paré said, in a statement released May 27 by North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore.
“Schools should only be using age-appropriate materials, and these flashcards clearly do not meet that standard for a pre-school classroom,” she added.
The flashcards depict an image of a “pregnant man” and multiple children in “families” with two “parents” of the same sex.
“I hope schools across Wake County and the State of North Carolina will follow the example of Ballentine and respond swiftly when a parent expresses concern and ensure that materials like this are not being used to teach young students,” Paré continued.
Paré contacted school principal Lutashia Dove who was reportedly unaware of the use of the flashcards since they were not part of the approved curriculum. The name of the preschool teacher who showed the flashcard to the children is not disclosed.
Upon discovering that the cards were indeed being used to teach young children, Dove immediately removed them from the classroom and contacted the WCPSS area superintendent and engaged human resources to investigate the matter.
The cards were designed by a now-defunct company called ByUs Box which focused on marketing pro-LGBT products, including flashcards of “non-binary” and “transgender” animals, gender-neutral nursery rhymes, and a “Blackness Collection.” The inspiration for the company came from George Floyd’s death.
At least 135 U.S. teachers and teachers’ aides have already been arrested in 2022 for child-related sex crimes, ranging from child porn possession to rape, and these are only the cases reported by the media.
And, while the vast majority of teachers are upstanding citizens, we also know some are indoctrinating our children with the LGBT ideology and practices to "make an ally of them" at a wholly inappropriate age.
This is not acceptable, and must be stopped now.
SIGN: Congress must ban federal funding for schools promoting sex or LGBT ideologies among children.
With Governor Ron DeSantis already taking action in Florida, banning instruction on sexuality and gender identity by teachers among third graders and younger, it's now time to see a federal push to effectively end such meddling in the minds of our children.
Parents have a responsibility to defend their children from those who overstep boundaries, whether that's in the form of LGBT propaganda, pornography, or other forms of sexualization in schools.
Too often the media downplays what's at stake: nothing less than the innocence of our children, and sometimes even their very lives, as this grieving Mom explained in March.
SIGN and SHARE: Congress must ban federal funding for schools who attempt to sexualize children.
76% of the arrests of teachers and aides for child-related sex-crimes this year involved assaults on students.
Jonathan van Maren reports that while one California teacher was charged with aggravated assault of a child, another was charged with 29 counts of child molestation.
A North Carolina science teacher was charged with 27 counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and 28 counts of “indecent liberties with a student.”
Parents need to construct every possible barrier to more children being abused, and one important way is to stop groomers and potential groomers from discussing sex with children in the classroom.
It is a violation of trust to introduce someone else's precious child to the minefield of sexuality, and it breaks down inhibitions that are meant to protect our most vulnerable young people.
SIGN TODAY: Pull federal funding from any school that sexualizes children
We already know that drag queens, some of whom admit to grooming, have no place in the classroom, and that teaching children about gender identities and sexual preferences is wholly inappropriate, but it's beyond time we took action.
Thank you for signing the petition today.

North Carolina has seen a recent movement of increased parental involvement in schools, against LGBT propaganda continually pushed on young children.
A recent poll showed that 57% of voters supported passing legislation to “make parents the primary decision-makers regarding their child’s health and medical decisions and provide parents with opt-out options regarding controversial surveys or age-inappropriate classroom materials.”
