Dakota Ramppen, a middle school teacher in New Jersey for KIPP Public Schools, recently posted a TikTok video in which she claims that parents are not qualified to teach their children about gender and sexuality. Instead, she insists that only “experts” such as herself should take on that responsibility.

“Parents send their kids to school to learn math, reading, writing, history, and science from a professional. But in the same token, a lot of the people who do that also think that they’re experts in sexuality education because they’ve had kids,” she says. “With all due respect, just because you’ve had kids does not mean that you are a sexuality education expert it does not mean you are an expert in sex. I mean, it makes sense. Like, it makes sense,” Ramppen continues.

Outside of her day job, Ramppen is a sex coach who holds certifications in “Erotic Touch & Talk,” “Foot Fetish and Worship,” and “Playful Positions for Multiple Gender Combinations.” She also hosts a podcast, “Get Real With Dakota,” on Spotify. She previously worked for a Planned Parenthood-affiliated organization to create “sex-positive” guides to pornography and sex toys for children, according to her LinkedIn profile.

Although it is unclear whether or not she imparts her expertise on the practice of “foot worship” (whatever that may be) to her students, what is clear is that Ramppen spreads misinformation on some of the most basic realities of human existence within the walls of her classroom.

In a separate video posted to TikTok, Ramppen recounts her response to a student who challenged her belief that there are more than two genders: “We know that before Europeans came and stoled [sic] all this motherf—g land, that Native American tribes–not all of them, but some of them–did not adhere to these ideas of gender,” she said.

Contrary to the activist teacher’s claims, in reality, the term “two-spirit” was invented by a gathering of LGBTQ+ Native Americans in 1990. The concept has no historical basis. Even if it did, it would still be illogical.

Young America’s Foundation was unable to reach the teacher for comment, as her contact information is not listed on the KIPP Public Schools website. YAF is working to contact the school to figure out why they believe that this educator is an appropriate choice for the classroom.

Impressionable young students do not need LGBTQ+ activists polluting their minds with nonsense on a daily basis. These intimate topics should be reserved for parents to discuss with their own children.
