A children’s author and poet has written a new book helping young children to accept the body they were born with.
Rachel Rooney, who is also a trained special needs teacher, wrote My Body is Me! to counteract the recent “explosion” of books promoting radical gender ideology.
Homosexual news website Pink News publicised a tweet by a woman who describes herself as ‘non-binary’, comparing the book to “terrorist propaganda”.
“It’s impossible to have the ‘wrong’ body. It’s a very worrying message we’re sending to children.”
Stories such as Introducing Teddy, and Jamie: A Transgender Cinderella Story, which tell young children it is possible to be ‘born in the wrong body’, have been heavily promoted for use in schools.
Rooney said she is concerned that children who are on the autism spectrum “are learning that the reason they may feel confused or different is because they were born in the wrong body”.
She added: “It’s impossible to have the ‘wrong’ body. It’s a very worrying message we’re sending to children.”
In the book, illustrated by Jessica Ahlberg, she writes: “I am my body. My body is me. It’s a wonderful thing, I’m sure you’ll agree.”
Another line reads: “Bodies are different… Children are too. Some prefer pink things… Some prefer blue.”
The book is being distributed on the Transgender Trend website – run by a group of parents concerned about the current trend to diagnose children as transgender.
Referring to the abuse received by the pair from trans activists, the group tweeted: “We are indebted to Rachel Rooney and Jessica Ahlberg for their courage in being named for this book. It’s not easy, this is what you get for it.”
But it also said the book was proving popular with “hundreds of copies already ordered”.
