A teacher in the Capistrano school district of California has posted about a “queer library” in her classroom filled with over 100 books containing sex imagery.
The teacher is identified on the school’s website as Danielle Serio – otherwise known as “Flint.”
Flint posted about books in the “queer library” on TikTok, saying it was available to students and has been active for five years.
Due to the highly sexually-explicit nature of the books, many of the details covered have been withheld from the story.
One of the books, “Juliet Takes a Breath” by Gabby Rivera, contains highly graphic imagery of sex.
Another book, called “This Book is Gay,” also discusses the casual adult sites.
Flint even interviewed the school’s principal at San Juan Hills High, Dr. Manoj Mahindrakar, and posted it on TikTok.
Flint asked the principal whether he thought “it’s important to have a queer library on campus,” he said, adding “In my educational experience, books are always a good thing, and any books that support our students, I’m for.”
Flint said the teacher gets the books mainly through donations and included a link to an Amazon page so that the books could be purchased from donors.
When Flint was asked by a TikTok user why “queer library” books are not in general circulation in the school,” Flint said, “The library has some of these titles but getting them ‘into circulation’ is pretty challenging.”
Flint also questioned why parents have a hard time trusting educators.
“I’ve been wondering lately why it’s so hard for so many people in the general public to trust educators about education – the thing that we studied and do every day. It’s been so long since they were in school, I’m wondering if they have extreme or outdated views about what’s happening in the classroom,” Flint said.
