Veteran actor Kirk Cameron recently called out the major book publisher Scholastic for actively promoting transgenderism and pushing “sexually explicit” content in volumes geared toward schoolchildren.
In an extended social media post Tuesday, the outspoken 53-year-old performer slammed Scholastic Books for prioritizing “LGBTQIA+-themed books – including some containing obscene, graphic material” as he discussed partnering with the alternative book fair provider SkyTree on offering less controversial content to families.
“Ever wondered how all the sexually explicit, morally questionable books end up in our kids’ schools, classrooms and libraries?” Cameron asked pointedly in his post. He contended extensive investigation revealed the shocking reality behind Scholastic’s brand.
To illustrate his accusations, Cameron shared excerpts from recent Scholastic books that depicted children “glamorizing” gender transitioning, detailed exposes of naked bodies, and dramatized youth “coming out as transgender” to family members.
Cameron also noted a Facebook ad with images from a Scholastic book called “Heartstopper” got rejected for presenting teens in sexually explicit positions.
“Some assume Scholastic’s children’s books highlighting sexuality are the exception. That is incorrect,” Cameron added, saying the publisher touts over 100 LGBTQ-themed children’s titles on its website and has released many more not listed.
The former sitcom star asserted Scholastic can no longer be considered a trusted children’s content publisher by educators, since they are flooding schools and libraries with sexualized and gender-confusing material for minors.
Instead, Cameron is urging parents to switch to providers like his new partner SkyTree that offer less controversial and more family-friendly content. His aim is providing an alternative to the graphic, identity-focused books from major publishers like Scholastic that he believes could ultimately prove quite harmful psychologically and morally to impressionable young students.
