Not long after leaked audio from a California teachers’ union conference revealed that workshops were being held covering how to covertly recruit children into LGBT clubs without their parents’ finding out, a California mother says one of the teachers who led the workshop “coached” her daughter into claiming she identified as a boy seemingly against the girls’ sincere interests.
The blindsided mother, identified by The Epoch Times as Jessica Konen, says she was called to a meeting at Buena Vista Middle School in Salinas with teachers and the school principal, where she was told her daughter wanted to identify as a boy and that she must begin using the child’s preferred pronouns and name.
Konen sounded off about her horrific experience at a meeting of the Spreckels Union School District last week, explaining that she subsequently had police show up at her door, telling her there’d been a complaint made against her with CPS.
The school reportedly called the parents in for a meeting where they informed them that their daughter is trans. The teacher then proceeded to call CPS on them when they didn’t use the “correct” name and pronouns.

The mother says that police went as far as to ask her children if they wanted to be removed from the home, she says, which they did not. Ultimately, CPS dropped the case and did not demand she call her daughter by any other name or pronoun.
Now, she recently told Epoch Times, her daughter is in a different school and has expressed no desire to use a different pronoun or name, despite her mother asking to make sure her daughters’ wishes are respected.
“Mom, they’re not good people,’ Konen says her daughter told her when asked if she wanted her new teachers to use the name and pronouns that her old teachers had insisted she use.
“I asked her ‘Would you like to have an a.k.a. on your attendance?’ and she said, ‘No, I don’t want that, Mom,’” she says.
“Things are better. She’s in a different school, different surroundings. Nobody is really pressuring her,” the mother added.
Last month, journalist Abigail Shrier reported on leaked audio from a conference held by California’s largest teachers’ union, California Teachers’ Association, “2021 LGBTQ+ Issues Conference, Beyond the Binary: Identity & Imagining Possibilities.”
The conference featured a workshop called “How we run a ‘GSA’ in Conservative Communities,” which was conducted by two teachers from Buena Vista, one of whom, Konen said, was the teacher who tried to influence her daughter without her knowledge.
Their methods included covertly observing kids’ search history, playing dumb if asked about whether a child had attended a GSA club meeting, or using vague terms such as “Equality Club” which Konen said was the name of the club her daughter had been recruited into joining.
