The book contains assertions that babies are ‘misgendered’ by medical professionals at birth
Children as young as five are to be forced to read a book about transgender children as part of a ‘Transgender Day of Visibility’ that has been endorsed by the Biden administration.
The Daily Wire reports that children at Burton Valley Elementary, about 20 miles east of San Francisco, will be reading a book titled “It Feels Good to Be Yourself: A Book About Gender Identity.”

The book advertises itself as an introduction to “gender identity” for kids, and features child characters that are “transgender,” “cisgender,” and “non-binary”.

The first line states “This is Ruthie. She’s a transgender girl. That means when she was born, everyone thought she was a boy. Until she grew a little older — old enough to tell everyone that she’s actually a girl.”

The book contains ludicrous assertions that babies are ‘misgendered’ by medical professionals at birth:
This text from a children’s book “It feels good to be yourself: a book about gender identity” is all kinds of wrong. Dr’s & midwives don’t “guess” a newborns “gender identity” – whatever that is – they observe the newborns sex as male, female, or the presence of a CDSD. 😡 pic.twitter.com/Pod865BjaJ

The introduction of the book states that “This sweet, straightforward exploration of gender identity will give children a fuller understanding of themselves and others.”
Lafayette School District issued a statement earlier this month noting “The Lafayette School District acknowledges March 31, 2023, as Transgender Visibility Day and stands with the transgender community as it fights for freedom, safety, dignity, respect, and, most of all, love.”
In a resolution, the school board voted to honour Transgender Visibility Day, and will also fly transgender flags at all four elementary schools and one middle school all week.
Some parents of children at the school have said they plan to keep their kids at home on Friday in order to avoid the book reading.
