BRAMPTON, April 13, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — A Brampton teacher tweeted a cartoon on the Day of Pink her Grade 3 students prepared for kindergartners that one critics says verges on “child abuse.”
The tweet was deleted by Thursday, but here’s a screenshot:
The teacher tweeted later Thursday her class won the Day of Pink poster contest.

The Day of Pink is ostensibly an occasion rally against bullying, but in practice, it is used by homosexual and trans activists to push the LGBTQ+ agenda.
Thus, ironically, it puts those who protest or refuse to take part under threat of being bullied, or outed, as homophobic, transphobic, or transmisogynistic. In a way, it’s rather like those scenes in suspense movies where laughing children eating ice cream under bright sunshine unbearably heighten the viewer’s knowledge that evil is lurking nearby.
The Grade 3 cartoon catches the spirit of the day by depicting nebulous creatures celebrating “no age”, “no race”, “no religion” and, of course, “no gender” clustered around a slogan: “Love is love.”
But the cartoon “is a combination of child abuse and cultural Marxism. It’s completely wrong,” says Jack Fonseca, senior political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition.
“It should be illegal to intentionally try to confuse children about the biological facts of human sexuality, that there are only two sexes, male and female.”
Moreover, gender theory — which holds that there are many genders and these do not necessarily correspond to one’s biological sex, but can be changed at will — is not only scientifically wrong, but it “has the potential to produce massive sexual confusion in the minds of the young,” Fonseca told LifeSiteNews.
Pope Francis has frequently condemned gender theory in strong terms.
Indeed, Austrian Bishop Andreas Laun wrote in a 2014 essay the pontiff told him, ‘Gender ideology is demonic!’”
Gender theory “is an error of the human mind that leads to so much confusion,” the Holy Father said in March 2015 in Italy. “So the family is under attack.”
The pontiff criticized gender theory in his controversial apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia.
“It is a source of concern that some ideologies of this sort, which seek to respond to what are at times understandable aspirations, manage to assert themselves as absolute and unquestionable, even dictating how children should be raised,” he wrote then.
“It needs to be emphasized that ‘biological sex and the socio-cultural role of sex (gender) can be distinguished but not separated’.”
And he blasted gender ideology as “ideological colonization” during a meeting with Polish bishops during the 2016 World Youth Day.
“Today, in schools, they are teaching this to children — to children! — that everyone can choose their gender,” the Holy Father.
“Why are they teaching this? Because the books are provided by the persons and institutions that give you money. These forms of ideological colonization are also supported by influential countries. And this is terrible!”
Our Lord said in Gospel of Matthew, chapter 18, v. 6: “If anyone causes one of these little ones — those who believe in me — to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”
