Is that a thing already? I'd rather not; it might make them be confused.

It would be good for them to know that we're all different. They'll be more accepting to that as they get older.

I don't want them to be confused with their gender so I'd rather not.

Yep, and they writes their own fan fictions that are LGBT+ friendly. Guided appropriately it’s not an issue.

I agree that kids shouldn't read about it and then think they figure out who they identify as a young child. Most kids are flamboyant and also just change a lot and don't know who they are so giving them a huge list of who they might be could be damaging. I do however think children need to learn about and be aware that LGBTQ+ people are out there and common so that they are grown up as it being normal and being used to it. And if a child happens to be an LGBTQ+ person then if they learn that they aren't alone early on it could save them lots of feelings of being different or alone.

I think it is a good way to introduce our kids to the LGBTQ community.

They're too young to understand that. I can explain it to them when they're older.

I want my kids to be polite to everyone they see, even if they are different from them. Maybe reading them an LGBTQ fairy tale is a good introduction. Will give it a try.

I agree.

Nope. I don't see why. They'll learn of it in the real world.

The right time will come for them to read such books. We don't have to rush for them to understand things that don't matter at this moment for them as kids.

Probably when they are older. I find it hard to explain the concept to a child.
