The Taylors’ grievances were not only with the explicit images but also with the portrayal of Trans individuals with “top-surgery” scars.

The book’s contents, according to the Taylors, sparked concerns among parents who argued that such themes were too mature for preschoolers.

When the Taylors approached the Genesis Pre School, they expected an apology for stocking the controversial book. Instead, they were met with resistance.

The School Defended the Book

The school’s staff, including the safeguarding lead, defended the book’s contents and dismissed the idea that children would perceive the images as erotic or sexual.

Children Should Not Be Exposed

The Taylors argued that a child’s lack of understanding should not be used as a justification for exposing them to potentially sexualized imagery.

The Parents’ View

Will Taylor pointed out that promoting understanding and tolerance among children should not come at the cost of exposing them to explicit material.

Responsibility to Protect Kids

He said, “It seems those with safeguarding responsibilities are basing their decisions on what is safe and appropriate based on whether the child will recognize the risk for what it is.

To be clear, the ‘perception’ of the child is not the arbiter of what is age-appropriate or safe, regardless of their level of understanding.”

A Balanced Education

The Taylors’ decision to remove their daughter from the preschool led to accusations of bigotry.

Will Taylor, who has actively participated in LGBTQ+ events, stressed that his concerns were not rooted in homophobia but rather in maintaining a balance between age-appropriate content and promoting diversity.

The Book Was Removed

The trustees of the nursery eventually removed the book and conducted an audit of their literature collection to ensure appropriateness for young readers.

“I Don’t Blame Them!”

Several social media users expressed their thoughts on the incident.

One Twitter user wrote, “I don’t blame them! We are now at a point where we have to protect our children from schools and teachers! What happened to letting children be children? Trying to preserve their innocence for a minute?”

This Is Disgusting

Another User wrote, “Disgusting garbage. I feel sorry for the parents. It’s an embarrassment to the LGB community even though it’s creepy TQs foisting it on the general public.”
