Teachers are being encouraged to use a "Gender Snowperson" graphic to teach students about gender identity in sex education classes.

The gender snowperson image was tweeted by Teacher2Teacher, a left leaning nonprofit organization that provides lesson plans and other resources to teachers.

Teacher2Teacher is sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The organization identified Johnny Cole, a "diversity officer" for the Lexington School District, as the source of the image.

The image shows a genderless snowman on a board accompanied by stickers that explains the gender identity ideology. One sticker says:

"Gender Identity
Girl, Boy, Neither
Who you are and how you feel as a person."

Another sticker reads:

"Sexual orientation
Who you love or are attracted to".

A third sticker says:

Sex Assigned at Birth
Girl, Boy, Intersex
Pronoun assigned at birth".

Twitter users were confused and baffled by the agenda behind the lesson.

"What is the target age for this lesson?" asked one Twitter user.

"This is just awful. This is not something prepubescent children should have to deal with," wrote another user.

A third user tweeted: "Why is the snowman white?".

Michelle Obama shared a childhood photo from her school yearbook to mark the Day of Charity on Thursday Sept. 5.

The back-to-school photo shows 10-year-old Michelle displaying a toothy grin and bangs over her forehead.

In the photo caption on Instagram.com, Michelle said every girl deserves a good education and the same opportunities she's had.

"It's so easy for us to take our education for granted, especially here in the United States. Right now, more than 98 million adolescent girls around the world are not in school," she wrote.

"I learned a lot in school," she continued, "how to do my multiplication tables and structure a paragraph, yes, but also how to push myself, be a good friend, and dust myself off after a failure."

She added, "I believe every girl on the planet deserves the same kind of opportunities that I’ve had ... Girls who go to school have healthier children, higher salaries, lower poverty rates, and they can even help boost their entire nation's economy.

"The future of our world is only as bright as our girls," she wrote.

Michelle, 55, shares two grown daughters with former President Barack Obama, 58.

It’s after Labor Day, so I’m thinking about all the young people heading back to school and reflecting on my own days as a student in Chicago. I learned a lot in school—how to do my multiplication tables and structure a paragraph, yes, but also how to push myself, be a good friend, and dust myself off after a failure. It’s so easy for us to take our education for granted, especially here in the United States. Right now, more than 98 million adolescent girls around the world are not in school. I believe every girl on the planet deserves the same kind of opportunities that I’ve had—a chance to fulfill her potential and pursue her dreams. We know that when we give girls a chance to learn, they’ll seize it. And when they do, our whole world benefits. Girls who go to school have healthier children, higher salaries, lower poverty rates, and they can even help boost their entire nation’s economy. So today on #WorldCharityDay, I want you to share your favorite #BackToSchool photo and to join the @girlsopportunityalliance to take action for global girls’ education. Visit the link in my bio to learn more—because the future of our world is only as bright as our girls.
