A battle over parental rights is heating up across the country, specifically when it comes to allowing children to choose their gender while attending public schools. California and New Jersey are leading the charge, as the government has taken legal action to prevent parents from knowing their children’s chosen gender while at school. This is an outrageous infringement on parental rights and an attempt to keep parents in the dark about important aspects of their own children’s lives.
In Michigan and Pennsylvania, the decision on whether to notify parents is left to the individual school districts. Shockingly, some districts, such as Ann Arbor public schools in Michigan, do not require parental notification when a student transitions or uses different pronouns. It’s concerning that schools would choose to prioritize the secrecy of a child’s gender identity over the rights of parents to be involved in their child’s education and well-being.
States like Arkansas, California, Hawaii, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Montana, Nebraska, South Carolina, and Texas have introduced bills that would require school districts to disclose a transgender student’s gender identity to parents. This is a step in the right direction, as parents have every right to know what is happening with their own children. It’s absurd to think that there are politicians and activists who believe that children are the property of the state and that parents should be left in the dark about their child’s most personal decisions.

This battle is not just about parental rights, but also about the ideological indoctrination happening in our school systems. The far-left extremists have taken hold of the government school system and are using it as a tool for pushing their own worldview onto other people’s children. This is a dangerous path that undermines the importance of family and parental authority. These radicals must be held accountable for their attempts to silence parents and manipulate children for their own agenda.
Attorney General Rob Bonta of California and Attorney General Matthew Platkin of New Jersey have both filed lawsuits against school districts that have implemented policies to protect parental rights. It’s encouraging to see some officials standing up for the rights of parents and challenging these unconstitutional policies. However, there is still work to be done to ensure that all parents are able to be fully informed and involved in their children’s education. No child should be subjected to the potential dangers of hiding their gender choices from their parents.
Ultimately, schools should be a safe place for all students, but that does not mean undermining the authority and rights of parents. The policies implemented by these school districts are not just discriminatory, but also harmful to LGBTQ+ youth. It is important to find a balance that respects the rights of parents while creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students. Let’s not forget that parental involvement and support are crucial for the well-being of all children, regardless of their gender identity.
