Delaware Set to Allow Kids to ‘Choose’ Their Own Race and Gender Without Parental Kno

Quote:



With Regulation 225, gay and transgender advocates are seeking to make state schools “more welcoming” to transgender students, but parents say the rule infringes on parental rights, Fox News reported.

The rule allows students to make their own decision of what “gender” they are for the use of bathrooms and sports facilities that comport with their assumed “gender identity.”

Rule 225 does not require schools to inform parents of a child’s decision to change genders. Indeed, instead of relying on parental decisions, school officials are authorized to approve a student’s decision to assume a different gender.

Transgender activist Mark Purpura praised the proposed rule, saying it is made in the “best interest of the child” and helps support kids “living in fear” of their parents.

But many citizens oppose the rule. During the public comment period about the measure, more than 11,000 Delaware citizens spoke up in opposition to the rule.

Delaware’s Democrat Gov. John Carney supports the measure, but State Rep. Rich Collins (R-Millsboro) opposes it, calling it “onerous” and “confusing.” He also insisted that the current anti-discrimination laws on the books are perfectly sufficient to guide schools on the subject.

Wonder how this will work with affirmative action?

Sounds like a good step toward a racially and gender blind society.

Interesting. I am not sure it is a good idea? I think we need a national discussion about what family is. I also favor social order based on family order. This goes with traditional identities.

However, one of great grandson's has very dark skin and he is the only one in the family with dark skin. Our words for race, black and white, do not work because genetically he is both, and culturally he is white American. But he is attracted to people who look like him. What is important to me is he is my grandson no matter what.

I know some of the females in my family have had homosexual relationships, but they seem to prefer relationships with males. Does that make homosexuals? I don't think so. I don't care if they are but perhaps labeling ourselves doesn't work so well?

I think you need to explain your question to Mythbuster as well. It seems like a loaded question or non sequitur. What does it have to do with Mythbuster's quote you're responding to?

This thread is only about races and genders being different; there's nothing in the OP suggesting that races and genders are unequal & in fact they're not unequal, and there's nothing wrong with some things being different (we're all different and there's nothing wrong with that). Since you're implying that races and genders are not equal, why do you perceive that they aren't?

Yea for Delaware. Kids should be allowed to pick their own gender and not be gender assigned. I liked the way Liberace played the piano but my piano teacher did not like him one little bit. I love the way Elton John plays the piano and most agree with me and especially, Rocketman. I also like The Bitch is Back. I have an open mind and don't care if they or gay or not.

edit: My piano teacher was an idiot who said you will never master Segri Rachmonov but I did.
