WARNING: This story contains graphic content and images.
Oregon schools in the North Clackamas District contain books with pornographic imagery, including imagery of sex acts, according to an online portal schools use to track books available for children to take out at their libraries.
Schools around the country use the program Destiny to track books taken in and out of its library. Fox News Digital obtained screenshots of inappropriate titles and books on gender ideology at most of the district’s schools.
Destiny listed books in at least three high schools, Milwaukie, Adrienne C. Nelson, and Clackamas high schools that actually contain depictions of sexual activities, including oral sex. Some images are so graphic that they are being withheld from this story.
A mother in Oregon pulled her children out of the schools as a result of what she believed was indoctrination in Oregon schools.
“It’s not about how I feel. It’s about that the laws are being broken,” Kristen Stevens told Fox News Digital. “Children are being exposed to sexual content at an age that they’re not developmentally ready to be exposed to this. It actually can cause PTSD in a lot of these children.”

She warned that parents should pull their children out of public schools, else their children become indoctrinated and owned by the government.
“Pull your children out of school, it will not change. Starting next year, it will get worse,” she said. “It’s not worth handing your child over to the government to let them teach them sexually explicit content or to teach them the indoctrination… The next thing you know, you look at your child, and you no longer recognize them because they’re not your child anymore.”
Fun Home – High School
“Fun Home,” written by Alison Bechdel, follows the journey of a lesbian girl getting to know her sexuality. It contains images of lesbian sex as well as masturbation.
The book has made controversy in other verticals as well. When it was assigned for freshman reading at Duke University – a Christian student wrote in The Washington Post that he refused to read it because there is an “important distinction between images and written words… But viewing pictures of sexual acts, regardless of the genders of the people involved, conflict with the inherent sacredness of sex.”
The book was present at Milwaukie High School, according to Destiny.

I am Jazz – Elementary
“I Am Jazz” is co-written by Jazz Jennings, who starred on a TLC show highlighting her life as a transgender teen. The plot begins with a young boy trying to convince his parents that he is a girl. “Pretending I was a boy felt like telling a lie,” Jennings said.
“Then one amazing day, everything changed. Mom and Dad took me to meet a new doctor who asked me lots of questions. Afterward, the doctor spoke to my parents and I heard the word ‘transgender’ for the very first time. The night at bedtime, my parents both hugged me and said, ‘We understand now. Be who you are. We love you no matter what,” the text continued.
The book also discusses how using the boys’ bathroom didn’t feel normal “at all.”

Melissa – Elementary
The book whose former title was “George” is about a fourth-grade transgender girl’s journey. Some of the passages in the book refer to a child’s sex organs in crude terms.
“She immersed her body in the warm water and tried not to think about what was between her legs, but there it was, bobbing in front of her,” the book said.
In another part of the book, it states, “There was nothing George dreaded more than when boys talked about what was in her underpants.”

When George asks a girl named Kelly about not wearing skirts, she said, “I don’t wear them to school. Boys are dirty and try to look up them.”
“I’d never try to look up your skirt,” George replied.
“Of course not. You’re not a boy,” said Kelly.
Another part of the book discusses Melissa’s (formerly, George) experience using the bathroom.
“Melissa locked herself in a stall, delighted for the privacy. She lifted her skirt to see her underwear, covered in tiny red hearts. She pulled it down, sat, and peed, just like a girl… This part of this magnificent day was her personal secret,” the book said.
This book was present at Morrow Cannady Elementary, Lot Whitcomb Elementary, Spring Mountain, Sojourner/Linwood Elementary, and Milwaukie El Puente Elementary School, according to Destiny.

The book explores the journey of a young boy named Aidan coming out as transgender.
The book says, “When Aiden was born, everyone thought he was a girl. His parents gave him a pretty name… But as Aidan got bigger, he hated the sound of his name… He was really another kind of boy.”
Aidan’s mother admits she made a mistake misgendering her son, saying, “When you were born, we didn’t know you were going to be our son. We made some mistakes, but you helped us fix them.”
Then, when Aidan’s mother became pregnant, she was asked by someone whether the baby was a boy or girl. “Aidan didn’t like it when people asked if he was a boy or a girl, and he hoped the baby couldn’t hear yet. He was glad when Mom just smiled and said, ‘I’m having a baby.'”
This book was present at Scouters Mountain Elementary, according to Destiny.
