DANGEROUS: Parents and members of the NAACP are up in arms as the Delaware Department of Education forges ahead to allow students of all ages to self-declare their race and gender without parents’ knowledge or permission.
Under the proposed Regulation 225, schools must keep a student’s professed transition to a different gender or race a secret if students claim their parents are not supportive of that new identity.
Particularly on social media, transgender activists often address vulnerable teens, informing them to not trust their parents if those parents resist the child’s self-diagnosis of transgenderism. Many transgender activists groom teens to consider adult transgenders and activists their new “glitter” family.
The proposed regulation does not provide for a counselor or therapist to determine if the newly-transgender-identified teen has succumbed to the social contagion of Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria or has another condition that is causing gender dysphoria, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The proposed regulation requires schools to make gender identity the basis for a student’s access to sports teams, locker rooms, and bathrooms. It also contains a speech code designed to silence all objections in the guise of an anti-bullying policy.
While Delaware DOE officials say the purpose of racial self-declaration is to help biracial children, there is nothing in Regulation 225 to stop white children from declaring themselves black to win scholarships intended to benefit black students. The DOE could have protected biracial children specifically, but did not.
The leaders of the Central Delaware branch of the NAACP and the Delaware State NAACP Conference expressed opposite stands on the idea that race can be self-declared, Delaware Online reports.
“The fight by those of African descent for equality is fundamentally different than allowing a young child to determine his or her gender,” wrote Lamar Gunn, president of the Central Delaware NAACP, in a letter to Delaware Governor John Carney. read more
