Auburn High School Summer Reading Encourages Kids To Read Book About “Gender Fluid” Teen Rebelling Against “Uber-Conservative” Congressman Dad Written By SJW Activist
The following is the summer reading list for Auburn High School this year:
See that book, “Symptoms of Being Human” by Jeff Garvin? Yea, here’s what it’s about: Alright, well, this is completely inappropriate brainwashing of children. Turtleboy is a firm supporter of public schools and public education. But stuff like this just gives the haters fuel for the fire. Here’s the two biggest problems with this:
- Gender fluid? Seriously? Gender fluid means, “denoting or relating to a person who does not identify themselves as having a fixed gender.” In other words, it’s someone who can’t make up their mind and wants attention. Today they could be a girl, tomorrow they could be a boy. You’ll have to follow them on IG to figure out which pronoun to call them today. The fact that this is being promoted by the Auburn Public Schools is insane.
- Riley, the gender fluid punk rock rebellious teenager, must overcome his “uber-conservative” congressman father. Because the message is clear – conservatives are the antagonists. They are the bad guys standing in the way of progress. Free spirit children must overcome them. This is insulting to every Auburn High School student whose parents have the audacity to be conservative.
Here’s my question – where are the classics? I haven’t read the rest of those books, so many of them could be brainwashing political propaganda like
Symptoms of Being Humanclearly is.
But I don’t see any of the following GREAT pieces of literature on that list:
- Fahrenheit 451
- Animal Farm
- Brave New World
- East of Eden
- Catcher in the Rye
- Lord of the Flies
- Warriors Don’t Cry – the Melba Beals Little Rock 9 story (amazing book)
- To Kill a Mockingbird
- Uncle Tom’s Cabin
- The Call of the Wild
- Moby Dick
- The Great Gatsby
- The Scarlett Letter
- A Farewell To Arms
- The Color Purple
- Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
- The Grapes of Wrath
I could list dozens more. All of those books deal with applicable themes or historical time periods that kids will learn about in school. Many (1984, Brave New World, Scarlett Letter) deal with themes that directly apply to the time period they’re living in now. But instead of encouraging our kids to read these classics, the Auburn Public Schools want you to read about the gender fluid kid rebelling against his uber-conservative congressman father.
Jeff Garvin (the author who will profit off of this) is a full time SJW twitter activist as well. He supports making a designated “third gender”:

He was really upset when President Trump left the bathroom issue up to the states, and believed it would lead to more hate crimes and fear:
We saw what happened after DT's election & travel ban: a spike of hate crimes and fear. #transrights

He believes that the black lives matter folks who blockade highways, yell slurs at the cops, spread lies, kill police officers (Dallas, Baton Rouge), and have called for the abolishment of the police as a whole, are the modern day equivalent of Martin Luther King Jr:
Remembering MLK. Sad that 49 years later, #BlackLivesMatter is a controversial subject–but grateful that it's still a conversation.

He thinks that white people should avoid talking about racism because they just don’t get it:

He plans to use his white privilege to fix everything:
White dudes. We got this. Time to use that privilege like a megaphone. https://t.co/rMyZ1SGz43

And he spread the lies and myths about hate crimes after Trump’s election, most of which have been thoroughly debunked at this point:

Look, you can support transgender rights, and that’s fine by me. But the fact of the matter is a lot of parents have a problem with it, and there’s nothing wrong with that either. One state over in Connecticut a BOY just won the girl’s 100 and 200 meter district championships in GIRL’S track. Parents of all the hard working girls that HE defeated were forced to accept this in the name of social progress. This isn’t harmless. It’s a direct assault on our daughters. Athletic scholarships are being taken away from them by people with penises who have simply declared that they are female. It’s perfectly normal to think that this isn’t OK.
Fictional literature that’s taught in schools isn’t just entertaining fairy tales. They’re read and discussed in schools because the themes are important. They teach us about good and evil. What happens when you focus too much on materialism? Find out in the Great Gatsby. What can white people do to help fight for civil rights? Find out in To Kill A Mockingbird. Why does communism sound good on paper but bad in practice? Find out in Animal Farm. What was slavery really like, and how did books influence the abolition movement? Find out in Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Why was World War 1 and war in general so bad? Find out in A Call To Arms. As you’re growing older and becoming an adult, do you have any fears about adulthood? Do you hate all the phonies? Do you generally like to complain about everything and wanna see what it’s like to call a hooker to your hotel room in New York before running away scared? You’re gonna love this whiny little Holden Caufield booger when you realize kids have had these same fears since the 1950’s and beyond.
These are all important themes for kids to read about. Teaching kids the importance of gender fluid teenagers rebelling against their politically conservative parents isn’t. Because it’s not the job of the schools to determine that one side of this debate is good and the other is bad. But that’s what they are doing by promoting this book to their students.
If you’re an Auburn parent and you want an explanation for how this made it onto the reading list, or why kids are being taught that people who have a problem with the transgender agenda are automatically bigots, here is the contact information for the superintendent and principal of Auburn High School:
