Rainbow Day Camp

A transgender Day Camp in California reinforces gender stereotypes in confused children as young as 4. Registration has grown to 60 kids, according to NBC News.

The Rainbow Day Camp, located in the San Francisco Bay Area city of El Cerrito, caters to gender confused children, ages 4-12, from around the country.

A group of lesbians and gay counselors, who are at odds with their own birth sex, watch over the campers.

"I want to show these kids what a confident, happy, successful trans person looks like," said camp director Andrew Kramer, 30, who lived as a butch lesbian until she "transitioned" to a "man" at age 26.

At the camp, biological boys who are uncomfortable with their birth sex are encouraged to dress as stereotypical girls, complete with bows in their long hair, frilly dresses, makeup, and purses.

While confused bio girls are encouraged to wear their hair short, dress like boys, and play with stereotypical masculine toys.

The gender stereotypes on display at Rainbow Day Camp are discouraged in the non-trans community, where corporations such as Target actively promote gender neutral marketing and stopped labeling toy aisles for boys or girls.

The transgender children at Rainbow Day Camp probably don't shop at Target, where their chosen gender preferences are all but eliminated.

    ??? at 4?!?! They confused cause they just learned what a boy and girl is. I can't... ?? y'all be good

  • Jen_no_juice

    Yes! I don't even know where to begin

  • Guest©

    The Brooklyn Public Library recently held an event called Drag Queen story time where they read books called, "worm loves worm"... They also asked the preschoolers, who wants to be a drag queen when they grow up!?!?! The poor children are being indoctrinated with the help of their "progressive" parents.

    I find it ironic that the black community has the most problem with this issue since our community has the most gender confused roles of any minority community in existence.
    *sad*

  • Renee26

    Still ... but she not transgender

  • Coy little wink

    Man...I took my mom to Olive Garden Saturday (don't judge she loves it ?) and there was a tranny working the reception desk just destroying the atmosphere looking like a science experiment that earned an F minus...we were like ? I lost my appetite

  • Renee26

    Hey Olive Garden is one of my favs...bomb salad and bread sticks

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    It just feels like in many cases the parents are trying to push this on the kids. They think they're being "open minded" or "progressive", but they're damaging their own kids and don't even know it. Sad.

  • Elevated Soul

    This is the sickness that the Alt-left promotes...

    If you support the gay agenda that Obama pushed especially on Black people, then you played a part in this sick behavior now being pushed, even harder on children.

  • Phillybruh

    The partner and I held the view that the parents were pushing this. Until the issue came up at the school our boys go to. They have a transgendered child attending they didn't tell us who or what grade, but the parents of the child had a meeting with all the parents and laid out how they got to the point of allowing their child to identify the way they did. Let's just say it was frightening.

  • Miss Lady

    This is some BS to the 10th degree. I grew up around that area and I'm glad they didn't have that mess then. There is nothing wrong with teaching tolerance, I still can't say acceptance but to have all of these confused folks all up in these children like that is scary and just not cool.

  • Kanyade

    Mercy.

  • Mojo2

    Pure evil. Why can't kids just be kids? Pushing the sexual identification agenda at such a young age is pure and simple "PROGRAMMING".
    Real parents would do this? Are these parents sacrificing their children to get liberal POINTS? I'd cut a person coming after my kids with that bull $hit. SMDH

  • YaYa

    no

  • Mojo2

    I'm beginning to believe this myself. Hope I'm wrong

  • Mojo2

    And yet no one complains to the library, I bet.

  • Mojo2

    An old saying: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

    Than the question is asked, which one is evil.? Lmaooo

  • Phillybruh

    I've taken my kid to one of these and the drag queen never asked who wants to be a drag queen. Its part of the library's reading program where they have different groups come in and read to kids.

  • PRPSP

    OMG please share!

  • FOR COMMENT

    every adult involved in this will be swimming the lake of fire.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    This is the devils chess game. In the end, there will be non gendered clones running around on this earth. Real people will be long gone. Whoever approved of this is either a coward or evil and headed straight to hell.

  • hotntot95

    Stay prayed up..humans throughout history have always found a way to self destruct...hard reset is the only option.

  • Phillybruh

    They simply shared how the child was in a constant state of torment and they didn't know what it was. They were all scared including the child. The grandparents actually mentioned to the parents of what it could be. Through counseling together and separately. They allowed the child to live as a boy. She was talking about mutilating her self and it wasn't something she was taught about at home. Once that was brought the parents made the decision to allow it. They transferred her from public school to a private school where it would be safer for him.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Enabling her delusions will not ease the anxiety or depression she feels. Cutters are emotionally unstable children who need therapy. Calling her a boy is like putting a band aid on the real problem.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    First, we understand the difference between sex and gender. Your sex is scientific and easily defined at birth. Your gender, how you identify yourself, is part of your psycho-sexual being.

    There are some that argue there are chemical or hormonal differences between a "normal" brain and a "transgerdered" brain. I have yet to see a credible study that supports this claim.

    As a parent, you owe your child the best possible foundation you can provide. In my opinion, teaching a child to love themselves without encouraging harmful delusions, is part of being a good parent.

    I think one's time would be better spent exploring the causes that lead a child to reject the societal norms. Was there trauma? Are feelings of abandonment causing the child to reject one gender and cling to the other?

  • Joi Calloway

    I hate to say this, but I won't be surprised when the confused counselors start molesting the children. Under the guise of helping them!

  • Phillybruh

    That sounds simple enough until your living the situation. I thought that as well until the parents thoughtfully explained how they got to where they are.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    I have made sure to keep a bottle of that dressing on deck in my fridge!

  • Phillybruh

    That only happens at straight camps run by churches.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    I don't know how to feel about this

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I understand your point, but what about children who are so convinced they are the opposite sex, any attempts to convince them otherwise, causes them extreme anxiety and depression? This is a mental disease and no one seems to know how to approach it.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Now, imagine a child struggling with this complex issue. I have a family member who is living this nightmare. She was extremely anti-gay until transgenderism knocked on her door.

  • SexyScorpio

  • Quitedeliteful

    I like this... Instead of pushing the tranny agenda on those who disagree with this lifestyle start your own camps where these children will be accepted by each other and those who don't want to be around them don't have to be.

  • free

    oh lawd, it's true?

  • Guest©

    Please go to youtube and watch the video. I have no reason to lie and there was more than one drag queen story time. Itd held at different libraries but the one they held at the Brooklyn Public Library featuring the drag queen "lil hot mess" is where she asks the kids who wants to be a drag queen when they grow up?

  • Guest©

    Please youtube search "NY Library brings drag queens to kids story hour." Tell me what you heard, smh. #facts #youaintgottoliecraig

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Children don't know anything until it is taught to them. I will never believe a child is born gender confused. If he/she is convinced he is the opposite sex, then someone needs to investigate the home life of this child. Something is amiss.

  • Vegas1989

    I agree with you on that. That's my best friend line right there.....LOL...When we say this people listen...I remember I say that in a meeting, My supervisor got scared....err-body got quiet and I walked off saying, 'I'm calling the Police on Everybody!" And I went back to work....LOL...it was too funny and peeps was scared to speak to me...but all the black peeps was like, " You are crazy as hell! I told them that I didn't take my medicine this morning

  • Vegas1989

    This is just crazy. Getting these young kids confused....4 years old.....They are still peeing in the damn beds and they want to have a camp for these young children...No Sir!...I can't support this....

  • Guest©

    Why would they protest? "They" prefer their children to live an alternative lifestyle, smh. Good is now bad...

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    It sounds like you're sexualizing gender identification and that is unfortunate. Identifying one's self as male or female, is a natural part of our development and there are many non-sexual factors that can impact the outcome of said development.

  • Phillybruh

    I would be doing my child a disservice by pushing my views onto them. My child will live in a different world than when I grew up. I can either fill his head and heart with my views or I can equip him for the world that he will have to navigate. My boys know transgendered people exsist and they are not to be treated any differently than how they would like to be treated. Its a different world equip your kids or they will get left behind.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Exactly but it's the church that continues to push homophobic and gays out of the black community when we need everyone we can get to fight bigger issues.

  • Tay Gee

    I think this is amazing, in fact I know someone who recently sent their child to camp similar to this one about a month ago. She told me that he had a wonderful time and met some really nice kids. In fact, he can't wait to go back next summer. FYI Sandra, these camps aren't just for Trans kids, but kids who identify as LGBTQ. What's wrong with allowing your kids to go to place where they feel comfortable and are able to identify with children like them?

  • CookieMobster

    This is so dumb. My son wanted to be a dang puppy when he was 4 but I explained to him that is not possible or natural and he snapped out of it in a few days. What the world?? Attention America ... It's time to turn to Jesus so you don't burn believe us!!!

  • Lia Washington

    Im soooo GLAD that my baby is GROWN....The things these children are exposed to these days is CRAZY!!!...Wooow!!!

  • NeverSurprised

    Yeah, because no gay man has ever molested a young boy. Unheard of, right?

  • Harley

    seems like many of the gays are fighting for the gay agenda and not the black community... many people are seeing the church for what it is..

  • Phillybruh

    If you want to split hairs.

  • NicoleZee

    Wait, what??? Is this what us parents have to deal with today??? How the hell can a toddler or preschooler know anything about trans issues??? My goodness??? Jesus please be a fence! I'm confused on how behavior like that starts. Is it due to the lack if a male role model in the home??? Most men today abandon their children so mothers don't have a choice but to raise children alone and we can't lay up with just any old psycho with a penis because that is very dangerous and sets a horrible example.

  • Renee Bee

    OMG! Bwahahahahaha! Real tears!

  • Phillybruh
  • NicoleZee

    I have no issue with the trans or gay community, I just don't understand how a very young child can deal with issues like that. It doesn't make sense. At that age, they barely know the difference between being a boy or a girl. Sad.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    If you're black and gay you're fighting for both because there is no inclusion for black gays in the white gay community.

  • Renee Bee

    ^^ All of THIS!!!!^^

  • NicoleZee

    The camp isn't the problem, it's the age group that I am concerned with. Confusing. How can a four or five year old know anything about trans or gay issues??? The f*ck???

  • Lisa daniels

    Any parent that send there child their needs to be locked for child abuse and molestation.

  • Jazzy T

    Yes indeed, As I read the comments the first thing popped in mind was cover for pedophilia...SMDH

  • Lisa daniels

    Let kids be kids and chose for themselves. Stop trying to force life changing decisions on these kids.

  • Jazzy T

    AMEN!!

  • Phillybruh

    I'm not sure people are sending 4 or 5 year olds to overnight camp. I think the ages being listed are a bit misleading.

  • Phillybruh

    Most folks commenting on here minds would go straight to that.

  • Jazzy T

    I use to be a tomboy, now am girly girl all the way!
    Now days they will label a child gay if you rather climb a tree then play with dolls sad...

  • NicoleZee

    I'm confused. I have an only child, a little boy! So basically, when I keep him away from girl things, am I wrong according to the trans community??? The f*ck??? He is a boy and he's almost 2. I don't get it. Right now, he is all boy and he plays with boy toys and wears boy clothes. When he plays with little girls, they play together will legos or puzzles or something similar. And if he plays with a doll, which is rare, it's a boy doll.

    So what the hell is the trans community trying to teach parents???All parents can do is pray I guess. I support the gay community because you can't change who you were born to be just like I can't change being straight, but forcing children to deal with this so young seems sick or am I wrong to think that way??? Hell if I know.

  • Lisa daniels

    It's a child. When you are 18 and can afford to pay for own surgery and capable to live those decisions, then do it. As child you dont really know what you want, so the parents need to stop it. It's child abuse

  • Phillybruh

    To keep him away from any toy is just stupid. He's just playing with it nothing more.

  • NicoleZee

    I'm not sure if you can choose your sexuality, maybe some are confused a bit at different life stages. There is no way that I could ever be with a woman. I just prefer penis, but I think I was born that way. I don't think someone can "switch" their sexuality unless they choose to experiment or maybe I'm wrong. I just can't picture myself ever desiring a woman, like WTH??? No diss to the LGBT community, I've just always been attracted to men.

  • NicoleZee

    I think it's important to teach children kindness and tolerance of people who are different.....different races and ethnicities, different religions, and different sexual and gender preferences. We just explain things the best way we can. When I take my 7-year old my cousin for train rides, I sometimes have to explain why there is a man on the train with makeup on fleek with a dress on, or why two women are holding hands, or why someone is using profane and abusive language knowing children are around. Gotta love Atlanta I guess!!! LOL!

  • NicoleZee

    I tend to agree in a way, but if he walks towards the girls toys I always steer him away. Why would a boy need a Barbie doll if he has other toy options??? I just buy him boy toys or gender neutral toys like legos since he's a boy. He loves trucks and cars, and I know some girls like them too. But if my mom ever caught him playing with a girl doll, she would beat him AND me!!! LOL! My mom don't play that gay and trans shit, she is not here for any of it. We have different views but she doesn't play about how my son is raised. She just wants him to be a straight masculine boy and keep it moving. I don't disrespect or talk back to my mom, if I did, my teeth would have to meet me in the emergency room!!! Old school mamas don't play that :)!!!

  • Tay Gee

    I don't think your insulting the LGBT community by not be gay, lol. The only thing that offends the community is when people judge who they are attracted to or want to be. I think if everybody just worried about themselves, the world would be a better place.

  • NicoleZee

    Very true. My late grandmother would say "God loves everybody". She never discussed issues like sex or homosexuality and even as a Christian woman, she never mistreated people who were different. I think it's important to just respect people and accept them for who they are. I just think that certain issues are better dealt with when children are older. What would a four year old know about sexuality and why would they want to be the opposite sex at that age???? I don't get that one.

  • Tay Gee

    I think this is somewhat click bait, so much so that before people do any research they draw conclusions. These camps allow kids of various age ranges to participate in fun field "kid" activities in a safe space, with children they can identify with. I'm sure as adults we can agree that nothing feels better than being able to be yourself w/o judgement in a space with people you can identify with.

    I think you underestimate how early a child may have particular feeling of being different and or identifying that they may be attracted to the same sex.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    I can not imagine. I just make sure I cover my children on a daily basis! I'm sure it's troubling

  • Joi Calloway

  • Nia Le

    Most sexual abusers are straight men...

  • Nia Le

    When do you hear of women (gay or straight) molesting children? Not often at all.

    When do you hear of straight men molesting children? Literally everyday.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    What if your son wants to play with dolls and wear a dress? What if your daughter wants to play with trucks and cut her hair? What if your refusal to let your child express itself, leads to suicide? What's more important: your child's welfare or your need to be in charge?

    I agree. Parents have to set boundaries and I would never approve of mutilating (sexual reassignment surgery) a child to satiate a mental illness. However, for the child's sake, there should be a compromise... at least, until you know the full scope of what you're dealing with.

    I don't know where you are at, but in California on weekly basis I read stories about high school and middle school coaches women and men molesting the same sex students! I also have read plenty of stories about homosexual priest molesting young boys! I also have read stories of young boys in the middle east being used as sex toys to older homosexual men who they trusted! Do I really need to continue?!

    Children abused per offender, homosexuals abuse with far greater frequency; and boys, research shows, are the much-preferred target. (http://mobile.wnd.com/2002/04/13722)

    It's a well-known fact that some gays turn to transgenderism so they can be in same sex relationships but convince themselves they are not gay.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You seem to be confused about gender stereotypes. A boy playing with girls toys does not make him a girl. A girl cutting her hair and playing with trucks does not make her a boy. Children who believe they are a different sex are emotionally and mentally troubled. Enabling their delusions will not fix them.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Children are so eager to appease adults. Imagine a confused child going to one of these camps and speaking to the "therapist" who is also a confused trans. These children are practically forced to be trans.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    At that age they want to please the adults around them. The more they play dress up the more attention they receive from the adults. It's a vicious cycle of dysfunction all around.

    Of course a boy playing with a doll doesn't make him a girl - just like a so-called sex change doesn't turn a man into a woman. The act of a male child playing with traditionally female toys may be a manifestation of the gender he identifies with. When I played with my Spiderman and Batman action figures, I was pretending to be those characters. I imagine the same applies to a boy playing with Barbie.

    This has nothing to do with this conversation but to this day, this is the funniest thing I have ever heard!! I asked my gay best friend over 20 years ago when we were in high school, when was the moment he realized he was gay. He told me he realized he was gay when he was about 10 years old. He would be at recess and all the boys wanted to play ''Juice'' (you know, Bishop, Q, Raheim, and Steel) and my friend wanted to jump rope with the girls LMAO He said that was the moment he knew!!!
