FOX 40. Denair, CA. Denair Middle School administrators in and families are dealing with a controversy surrounding a graphic called “The Unicorn Graphic.”
“I’ve talked to a lot of parents and a lot of grandparents and I know a lot of them have called the school and complained about it,” grandmother Tammy Stout said.
The graphic — which can be found on the website for Trans Student Educational Resources — is meant to educate people about gender identity.
It was distributed to roughly 50 students this week by a science teacher on the first day of the school year.
“It was not an assignment kids were not asked to fill it out he really was using it as a reference point,” Denair Unified School District Superintendent Terry Metzger.
Metzger said the seventh and eighth grade science teacher handed out copies of the infographic to help explain why the teacher doesn’t use the pronoun mister, instead using “Mx” pronounced mixed.
A title which doesn’t imply a gender.
