A legal defender of parental rights says the high school teacher in California who's boasting online about her classroom's "queer library" needs to be fired immediately.

Attorney Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) says the library of 100 LGBTQ-related books, which San Juan Hills High School teacher Danielle Serio has made available to students for five years, is "flat out dangerous to kids."

"She should be fired immediately," Dacus submits. "She has clearly breeched parental trust, and the materials that she is proposing for students to be able to have and to look at are borderline illegal."

Fox News reports that one of the books, "Juliet Takes a Breath" by Gabby Rivera, contains extremely graphic imagery of sex between women. Another book, "Everything you Ever Wanted to Know About Being Trans…" discusses BDSM, fetishes, and a kink social media networking site.

Fox News withheld many of the details covered in the books due to their "extremely sexually-explicit nature."

When a TikTok user asked why "queer library" books are not in general circulation in the school, Serio (also known as "Flint") said, "The library has some of these titles, but getting them 'into circulation' is pretty challenging."

She also supposes that parents' "extreme or outdated views" could be why many do not trust educators like herself.

Dacus suggests something more sinister is afoot.

"Unfortunately, this may be the cover that [is] used by pro-gay, LGBTQ clubs across America in public schools to bring in material that otherwise would not be able to be brought in a traditional, in-classroom setting," he says.

Regarding the "queer library," a TikTok video shows Principal Manoj Mahindrakar saying, "In my educational experience, books are always a good thing, and any books that support our students, I'm for."

Dacus finds that equally concerning.

Following Fox News Digital's request for comment from the Capistrano school district, a statement was released saying the district had "initiated a review" of the books.

"The books you reference were available through a high school extra-curricular club and are not considered instructional materials. However, we have initiated a review of these books, which are currently not available to students," the statement reads. "Our commitment is to ensure that information and resources provided to students who participate in extra-curricular clubs are consistent and in alignment with our policies. This review will include key stakeholders as we work together to support the social, emotional, and academic success of every student."
