First it was Critical Race Theory, not taught in our public schools but offered through the Law School at UW. Now it’s the sexualization of our children because there are two books, both found in the Kelly Walsh library and one in the Natrona County High School library, "Gender Queer," and “Trans Bodies, Trans Selves."
