EXCLUSIVE — A mother who threatened a Texas House of Representatives educational meeting with legal action if her daughter learned about critical race theory has opened up about her frustration with public education in an interview with Fox News Digital.
“If my daughter learns CRT, I will sue you. If my daughter learns [social and emotional learning] anyway, I’m going to sue you. I encourage every parent I know to sue you; sue every teacher, every principal, every system, everyone in the chain…because we’ve had enough of all of you,” a mother named Gabrielle Clark said June 26 during a public education hearing.
“I’m an atheist, bisexual, bi-racial, homeless person…I don’t want my child to be taught that just because she’s black and she’s a woman, she won’t make it. I don’t want my daughter to be taught that she needed to express herself sexually in her class.”
What preceded his comments at the public education meeting, Clark told Fox News Digital, was that two of his school-age children — a daughter and a son — “had been indoctrinated with CRT and [social and emotional learning].”

“I swear, I promise you, I’m going to turn this into a class action ambulance lawsuit business,” she said at the meeting.
In December 2020, Clark filed a lawsuit alleging that a Nevada class her son taught, which included the oppressor/oppressed narrative, violated his constitutional freedom of speech and due process rights.
“I wasn’t going to let my son be alone in objecting to it when he did it. He said anyone can be a racist. And anyone can be a racist. And I don’t care what that what woke people are saying about it. Racism is being race prejudice, no power more privilege or whatever – whatever parallel language they use to describe racism now,” said Clark.
Then, in 2021, Clark decided to move states to “save” her daughter from “indoctrination” into gender ideology. She arrived in Texas in January 2022.
“I also needed to surround my child with people who I knew were going to affirm…reality,” she said. “I couldn’t trust the school to tell me the truth. I couldn’t trust and know they were going to lie to me,” she said. “Any dissent over this ideology would be met with hostility, as far as I’m concerned.”
The mother drove three hours to Austin for the meeting, and she said she had to spend the night in a hotel she couldn’t afford in order to give her feedback.

During the interview, Clark told Fox News Digital, “I strategically placed my head so you wouldn’t see the hole in my wall because, you know, there’s no money there. -in. I’m doing this because it’s the right thing to do. But a lot of parents are too scared to speak up.
About CRT, Clark said the main point is that children should learn things in an age-appropriate way. Topics should be taught and debated, she said, in college or higher education, not in K-12 education.
One would not, for example, when teaching anatomy to children, bring a corpse into a classroom, she says.
“We’re not going to give a 7-year-old a scalpel and lay a fresh corpse on the table and tell him to go dig up that kidney. We’re not doing that. It would scar a child for life for having to do something. like that,” she told Fox News Digital. “So telling a child that because he’s black and a woman he’s at the bottom of the oppressive privilege matrix is just as terrible… [by] putting them in a state of lifelong victimization.”
“You’re going to trip,” Clark said at the meeting. “Every day we go to school and we see our teachers lying to us, lying to our faces. And you will say that you have our best interests at heart? So why does everything have to be so difficult? do you have to be a lawyer to understand all this?”
Clark told Fox News Digital that there should be no “bureaucratic steps” to remove pornographic books from public schools. Books such as “Gender Queer” and “Flamer,” which contain graphic images, have been found in public school libraries across the country.
“What we should do is say, hey look, it’s pornography in the library. You have ten days to remove it or the sheriff is going to come and get you. That’s where it should be. Because if someone in public showed this book to my child, that’s what would happen to them on the spot. [if] you show a pornographic book to a child in the street.”

At the meeting, Clark also took issue with the gender-neutral language that the left advocates.
“I’m a mother, not a birth person. I earn that right with my cellulite and my stretch marks. You’re not going to do this to us. We’ll fight you every day from now on,” Clark said.
