California teacher with 'queer library' slammed by parents for giving explicit ... trends now
A California high school teacher who told their thousands of followers on TikTok about their 'queer classroom library' is being slammed by parents over the sexually explicit content in many of the books.
The teacher, who goes by Flint and uses they/them pronouns, recently posted a video in which they opened a box of new Pride flags while discussing their queer-centric library, which they say has helped students who are 'figuring out who they are.'
'Don't get me wrong, my students love that library. It has been very helpful for many students figuring out who they are, how to relate to their peers,' they continued.
'There shouldn't be porn allowed in classrooms,' said David Averell, a parent in the district who spoke with Fox News Digital. 'What was in the classroom pretty much made me sick.'

One of the books in the transgender teacher's library is called 'Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Being Trans' and contains references to BDSM, including a mention of FetLife, a networking website for the 'kink community.'
'I find the BDSM/kink community to be extremely open-minded and welcoming in every way; it's a place of sexual liberation,' the book says.
'There is often more blanket level of acceptance of transgender people within the kink/BDSM (bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, sadism and masochism) scenes and sites such as FetLife.'

A book titled 'This Book is Gay' is also in the classroom, which could see students as young as 14 years old. The book talks about the gay-dating app Grindr, anal, 'girl on girl' sex, and dildos and strap-ons.
'We all want to have sex with loads of people,' the book states.
It even goes into detail describing how many men, 'gay or straight' enjoy the feeling of the prostate gland 'when massaged.'
