Per The College Fix, a science professor said that queer theory should be taught to children in elementary schools:

A science education professor at the University of Arizona believes elementary schoolchildren are being taught “heteronormative” and “limited” ideas in science classrooms, and queer theory and sexuality-infused curricula is the answer.

Kristin Gunckel discussed her ideas in a March 23 lecture hosted by the public university’s Institute for LGBT studies.

She explored “how queer theory can be a useful tool for re-imagining elementary science education and elementary science teacher preparation,” according to a webpage advertising the lecture.
