***This is the next part of a lengthy series exposing the undeniable falling away from Dordt University’s biblical roots. We have examined the ‘Christian thought leaders’ Dordt is proudly having speak on campus. We also exposed how Chief of Staff and Dean of Chapel Aaron Baart is pushing a radical Leftist agenda. Baart, along with President Erik Hoekstra, have led Dordt down the road away from basic, biblical belief and toward a much more secular worldview. Previous stories are included at the end of this edition.***

“My princess boy is 4 years old. He likes pretty things. Pink is his favorite color. He plays dress-up in girly dresses. He dances like a beautiful ballerina.”

That’s the opening lines of the book “My Princess Boy,” a book stocked at the Dordt University Library.

The title of the book pretty much tells the whole story.

“I love my princess boy. When we go shopping, he is the happiest when he looks at girls clothes. But when he wants to buy a pink bag or a sparkly dress, people stare at him. And when he buys girls things, they laugh at him. And then they laugh at me.”

It gets worse.

“Once my princess boy wore a dress at his birthday party. He welcomed his friends to his home and said ‘I am a princess boy.’ He put on jewelry and liked how pretty he looked and waved his princess boy wand.”

The villain of the book is anyone who doesn’t think a boy should wear dresses. The villain.

The public is able to access the Dordt Library most years, although COVID has tightened restrictions.

When discussing the book’s presence in the library of a Christian university, it was said that the book is used to expose Education majors to materials they may be subject to in a public school setting.

Joy Behar interviewed Cheryl Kilodavis, the author of “My Princess Boy,” along with Dyson — the subject of the book.

Behar asked Dyson if he’s always liked wearing dresses.

“Um, yeah,” the little boy says looking at his mother.

He was asked when he first put a dress on, Dyson didn’t know, but said it was for his birthday.

Cheryl said he was “a little before two.”

Behar asked Dyson a leading question — “you were happy when mommy said it was ok, right?”

“Hm hmm,” Dyson says.

“Because then you could be yourself,” Behar said. “You didn’t have to pretend to be what you didn’t want to be.”

The interview is horribly sad. Feel free to watch the full, tragic 6:43.

Dyson is taught to tell kids they’re not his friend if they don’t like him in a dress.
