British nursery school children as young as three are being given controversial new books which teach them to question whether they are male or female.
The toddlers are being exposed to characters who are unsure about their gender by a Government-funded Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender charity.
One of the books is called Jamie: A Transgender Cinderella Story and another features Thomas the teddy bear who tells friends he wants to be Tilly the girl teddy.
LGBT charity Educate & Celebrate claim their school reading lists will banish outdated stereotypes by encouraging them to think about their own sexuality.
Chris McGovern, chairman of the Campaign for Real Education, said: “I do not question the intentions of the people using and promoting this material but it is misguided.
“Adults need to stop thinking children see the world the way they do.
“They do not. They may play at being a goblin one day, a dragon the next.
“They do not see the world in the way adults do and inflicting adult neuroses about gender on to children is damaging and cruel.”
“Educate & Celebrate is a political and ideological organisation which does not educate and does not celebrate children.
“They confuse our children and our classrooms are not safe places if they are allowed to continue.”
The Department for Education said it had funded Educate & Celebrate in the past to help schools tackle anti-LGBT bullying.
