Planned Parenthood PRESCHOOL Guidance: 'Genitals Don't Make You a Boy or a Girl'

Four years old is not too young for a child to learn about gender confusion and transgender identity, according to a Planned Parenthood guidance for parents of preschoolers. The nation's largest abortion provider encourages parents to teach their preschoolers about gender identity in ways that encourage a rejection of their birth sex.

If preschoolers ask questions about genitals, Planned Parenthood encourages parents to get nuanced from the start. "While the most simple answer is that girls have vulvas and boys have penises/testicles, that answer isn't true for every boy or girl," explains the website in a section on "How do I talk with my preschooler about their body?"

"Boy, girl, man, and woman are words that describe gender identity, and some people with the gender identities 'boy' or 'man' have vulvas, and some with the gender identity 'girl' or 'woman' have penises/testicles. Your genitals don't make you a boy or a girl," the guidance states.

Planned Parenthood goes on to encourage parents to tell their four-year-old children "that it doesn't matter too much what parts someone has — that doesn't tell you much about them."

Only after all this does the nation's largest abortion provider add in a caveat: "But you can make that decision based on your values and how you plan to talk with your kid about gender as they grow up."

Naturally, Planned Parenthood isn't shy about what they mean by "your values." The section "How do I talk with my preschooler about identity?" reads, "If you think your child might be transgender but don't know what to do, talking with a counselor or therapist who's familiar and supportive of LGBTQ identities is a good idea" (emphasis added). Subtle.

The nation's largest abortion provider also suggested that "talking with other families with trans or gender nonconforming kids can be helpful, too," and promoted "community groups" like the LGBT activist group PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays).

Planned Parenthood was not afraid to advocate openness to homosexuality among preschool kids as well. "Your kid may notice another kid on the playground or in their preschool has a different kind of family than them — a family with a different number of parents, or with grandparents raising kids, or with two moms or two dads, or any number of other situations."

"Take a minute and explain to your kid that they're right — what they're noticing is different from your family — but that there's nothing wrong with it, and that we can always be friends with people who are different from us," the guidance explains. This push is much more subtle, but it shows Planned Parenthood's agenda to normalize homosexuality at the earliest possible age.
