Little boy forced to read redefined ‘GayBCs’ and social media explodes: ‘This is full-on abuse!’

A viral video has surfaced of a woman helping a little boy read from a book called “The GayBCs” that uses the alphabet to introduce readers as young as 4-years-old into the progressive, woke LGBTQ universe.

The video starts out with the woman asking the little boy if he likes the book and if he’s a ‘woke’ toddler. The woman goes through the entire redefined alphabet starting with A for “ally” and B for “bi.”

The child seems to have gone through “The GayBCs” a number of times. He is very familiar with the book and is innocently parroting the politically correct letters of a new, progressive alphabet that he has been taught.

Not all the words have an LGBTQ connection. For instance, H is for “hope” and M stands for “mountain.” The little boy dutifully recites what he has been taught and many say they consider it a form of child abuse.

Other letters of the alphabet cut directly to the heart of the controversial matter:

C is for “coming out.”
D is for “drag.”
G is for “gay.”
I is for “intersex.”
L is for “lesbian.”
N is for “non-binary.”
O is for “orientation.”
Q is for “queer.”
T is for “trans.”

The social media response was swift and brutal over the video.

“The ‘progressive alphabet’ for the next generation,” one critic tweeted. “God help us!”

Another blasted the whole concept: “I’m gay & … KIDS SHOULD NOT BE TAUGHT ABOUT SEX. PERIOD,” another user noted. “Doesn’t matter if it makes YOU feel better. Is P for pedo? S for sodomy? I’d object to a kid learning an alphabet of diseases, too. It’s called preserving innocence.”

But perhaps the strongest comment was this one:

Others actually approved of the book and defended its message.

One person spoke in favor of the book on Twitter: “In the past if you read an ABCs book, it might’ve had B for boy with the color blue and G for girl with the color pink, until you associate the color with the gender. Familiarizing children with gay, trans, and non-binary things is the exact same thing. That isn’t brainwashing.”

“It’s teaching kids that other people and minorities exist,” another person tweeted. “Trying to imply this is wrong is only implying that children should only grow up to misunderstand and be ignorant of other lifestyles … perpetuates a problem; that is what we already have with ppl misunderstanding us.”

There’s also a video from June of 2020 that a teacher put out promoting the book.

In that video, after you see “B is for ‘bi'” the text reads, “You can shout it out loud. I like boys and girls, and that makes me proud.” Then the letter “G is for ‘gay'” and the following text states, “It’s a word that implies you’re a girl who likes girls or a guy who likes guys.” It goes on: “L is for ‘lesbian'” and the text denotes, “It’s love and affection between two special girls who share a connection.”
