Delaware Considers Letting Students Decide Race, Gender Without Parents’ Permission


“White boys could soon self-identify as black girls in Delaware.” So begins one of the latest columns of Fox News’ Todd Starnes,
reporting on what parents probably wish was fake news. Unfortunately
for the families in The First State, reality may soon be optional for
kids in Delaware public schools.

In one of the more incredible
headlines of the year, local officials in the state’s Department of
Education are actually debating a regulation that would let students
choose their race and their gender.

If it sounds unbelievable,
that’s because it is. For the last few years, families have been shocked
that they’d have to defend traditional biology in places as sacred as
restrooms, showers, locker and changing rooms. Now, the proponents of
this government-sponsored make-believe are trying to make everything

It’s the campaign for these “protected
characteristics,” local liberals argue, that would give children the
ability to redefine their most defining traits. And without ever calling
home. Under “Regulation 225 Prohibition of Discrimination,” students
can make these determinations without letting their parents know.

Americans need an alternative to the mainstream media. But this can't be done alone. Find out more >>

to requesting permission from a parent or legal guardian, the school
should consult and work closely with the student to access the degree to
which, if any, the parent or legal guardian is aware of the Protected
Characteristic and is supportive of the student, and the school shall
take into consideration the safety, health, and well-being of the
student in deciding whether to request permission from the parent or
legal guardian,” the proposal states.

“Literally,” Delaware Family
Policy Council President Nicole Theis told Starnes, “if a parent
affirms their child’s biological sex, and now race, they are
[considered] discriminatory through policies like Regulation 225. These
policies are setting parents up as … unsupportive, even abusive, if they
affirm their child’s biological realities … ”

Of course, the
irony is that someone’s being abusive, according to the American College
of Pediatricians—and it isn’t parents. This is exactly the kind of
agenda they classify as “child abuse.”
Theis is calling on people across the state to get involved in stopping
state officials from putting kids in dangerous situations—and keeping
parents in the dark about it.

By law, the people of Delaware have
30 days to “comment” about the regulation, but the agency is under no
obligation to change it. Hopefully, parents can apply enough pressure to
force the governor to back away from the idea. Join Theis and other
concerned citizens by pushing back on this madness. If you’re from
