Parents and family groups have succeeded in putting a halt to a proposed rule in Delaware that would have allowed children in grades K-12 to self-identify as a gender or race without the consent of their parents.
According to the text of Regulation 225 – referred to as an “anti-discrimination” regulation – Delaware school officials may not wish to trust parents with the information their child wants to identify as the opposite biological sex or a different race, if those parents are not fully on board with their child’s decision.
……“Policies like Regulation 225 are setting parents up as a ‘non-ally’ and ‘unsupportive,’ discriminatory, even abusive, if they affirm their child’s biological realities and work through it instead of embracing the confusion,” states Delaware Family Policy Council – which spearheaded opposition to the rule.
The group continues that while all children should be treated with respect, and gender-confused children should receive “compassionate accommodations,” the rule obstructs “the right of parents to care for their children without government intrusion.”
Within the liberal public school system that’s been he case for a while. The State knows how to raise your children better than you, and don’t you forget it. Including labeling restrooms that project their insane ideas on ‘gender identity’, and ‘transgender’.
……Most state House Republicans – 14 of 16 members – sent a letter to Delaware Secretary of Education Susan Bunting last month, urging her to reject the statewide regulation and allow local school districts to handle related issues as they see fit.
More parents of all political stripes are dismissing the claims of LGBT activists – often funded by wealthy progressive philanthropists – who accuse them of bigotry and discrimination for not accepting an ideology that rejects the scientific fact of the existence of two biological sexes – male and female.
Children don’t have the capacity to understand the complexities of sex, gender, or the asinine projections of the Left.
