More than 20 teachers and administrators who worked in the Redlands Unified School District, located in California's high desert, have been accused of sexually abusing students over the last ten years. Those claims were followed with lawsuits, and millions of dollars in settlements followed the lawsuits.
At a school board meeting last week, self-described “former trans kid” Chloe Cole said the school district wasted the $11 million it had been forced to pay to middle school students who were sexually assaulted by Redland teachers. That money, she said, could have gone to better causes in the community.
“Instead,” the 18-year-old told the school board, “you've enabled this reprehensible behavior by sexualizing your schools.”
Yet the school district, which appears to have a serious, lingering problem with sexual deviancy, is currently endorsing a drag queen story hour at a local library.
Cole and the group Detrans United are currently crisscrossing the country and pleading with trans-obsessed adults to stop their behavior because innocent children are being harmed. Wherever she has an audience, the teenager tells her story: She was first introduced to gender ideology at age 11. She took puberty blockers at age 13 and underwent a double mastectomy at age 15.
It was her own Northern California school, she says, that convinced her she was living in the wrong body.
“My body,” she told the school board, “was mutilated by an ideological cult before my 16th birthday.”
Chris Beck: From the beginning, it was a setup
During his interview on the Robbie Starbuck Podcast "Fight for Freedom," Chris Beck said an activist professor at Georgetown University School of Medicine found him and guided him toward the transgender lifestyle. Anne Speckhard wanted a trophy – and for a while she got that … and she got a book (co-authored by "Kristin Beck") titled "Warrior Princess."
"That first session, I sat with the VA psychologist, she was in the room. She brought me there," Beck described.
The VA was only too happy to play along, he continued. Under the Biden administration, VA hospitals dispensed drugs and performed the gender-mutilation surgeries. Beck recalled he was convinced the so-called "gender change" would be the ticket to a happier life; in fact, PTSD counseling would have served him better.
"There's an actual chapter that she didn't put in [the book]," he said, referring to Speckhard. "It was about drugs and abuse, and it was all about me and my abuse of what I was doing. She didn't put that chapter in there because it would've [caused readers to think that] maybe there's something else going on."
By the time Beck realized he was being used, it was too late to pull the book from shelves. "Halfway through writing that book, I realized what was going on and I started fighting it. I got a lawyer, and I started kind of fighting it. I said Do not publish – and I was trying to stop everything."
But according to Beck, Speckhard was seeing stars and dollar signs and went behind his back and published the book anyway.
"I didn't know it. She published a book on a day when I didn't know what happened. I had people calling me, 'Hey, you wrote a book.' They were so happy for me and saying 'Congratulations, the book is out. This is amazing.' And I was like, What? That was stopped, that was like, cease-and-desist. It was like, done."
Chloe's heart-breaking experience mirrors the same regret felt by Chris Beck, the former Navy SEAL, who identified as a female for years after he returned from war overseas. When he grew his hair long and called himself "Kristin," the military veteran said the woke Pentagon embraced him and celebrated his new gender. (See sidebar)
Beck is now transitioning back to the man God created, he recently told the Robby Starbuck podcast. Like Chloe, he is warning others - especially children and their parents - about being convinced to radically alter your life in the hopes of dealing with life's struggles.
"Everyone suffers," he said. "Everyone has things that happen to them. It's normal in this life."
Cole mocked by male trans reporter
What the regretful Chloe and others like her are up against is a tsunami of LGBT propaganda, from children’s books and open locker rooms to affirming teachers and after-school clubs. Everyone from school boards to state lawmakers are passing rules and regulations to affirm them, and disapproving parents are seen as enemies and kept in the dark.
A blistering story by The Los Angeles Blade, a homosexual newspaper, calls Chloe the "right-wing media's darling." Down in the story, the transgender writer speculates the 18-year-old is faking or exaggerating her medical history, being coached on what to say, and demands to know who is funding her cross-country travel and writing her Twitter posts.
The story even mocked Chloe for using phrases such as "biological male" and "biological sex" because those are "nonsense words," according to the Blade reporter Dawn Ennis.
Ennis, in fact, is a biological male.
Despite facing that overwhelming and disapproving opposition, Chloe and two other young people participated in an October school board meeting in Ventura County, California. When it was Chloe’s turn to speak for two minutes, she pointed out the trans book Call Me Max was given to an 8-year-old Conejo Valley student without a parent’s knowledge, according to a Christian Post story.
“You are placing children in direct harm. Children deserve better,” she concluded.
So the warning from Chloe to Redlands was much the same: More children are being harmed in the name of tolerance and it needs to end now.
