Children’s publisher stepping into ‘toxic’ territory
According to OneMillionMoms.com, Scholastic, Inc. is no longer safe for children. Monica Cole, director of the online activist group, explains that Scholastic books is “publishing and marketing books that are not safe for your children” and “promoting pro-homosexual and pro-transgender picture books for children.”
In an Action Alert to its supporters, 1MM says the Scholastic website features “morally toxic” reading lists for children, such as:
- “Mother’s Day Books for Two-Mommy Families“
- “Great Books for Two-Dad Families“
- “6 Picture Books About Transgender Children“
“… We’re concerned [that] Scholastic is pushing topics on children and introducing them to children as young as preschool age [that] should be left up to the parents to discuss,” Cole states, “and [selling] books … at book fairs at your child’s school that you may or may not be aware of.
“It is shocking because we know the dangers and how harmful the lifestyle choices are and can be,” she adds.
The pro-family group cites the American College of Pediatricians on the issue: “Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse.”
OneMillionMoms is calling on Scholastic, Inc. to stop pushing this agenda.
