LA, Chicago, NYC Conceal Kids’ ‘Gender Transitions’

This blatant fostering of lies is a flash point for conscientious parents.

When our children are little and learning about the world, responsible parents teach them about “safe” vs. “unsafe” adults. A trait associated with an unsafe adult is keeping secrets from parents. Schools all across the country are filled with unsafe adults who are willfully hiding a child’s “gender transition” from parents.

In Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York City, school districts all have policies in place that instruct educators to be vigilant and not out a student if that student has transitioned without their parents’ knowledge.

In LA, the school district policy says, “District and school personnel may encounter situations where students have not publicly disclosed their gender identity; therefore, school personnel must be mindful of the confidentiality and privacy rights of students when communicating with others, so as to not reveal, imply or refer to a student’s gender identity or expression.”

In Chicago, students who decide to become transgender are assigned a “student administrative support team” that basically guides them through how to socially navigate their new “gender identity” and conceal it from their parents if they are not going to be supportive. Endorsing outright lying to parents is deeply troubling. This, though, from the city that allowed its mayor, Lori Lightfoot, to openly use the classroom to recruit for her campaign is not a surprise.

In New York, on top of a similar policy of “respecting” a child’s decision to hide their different “gender identity” from their parents, it also has made it so that students don’t even need parental permission to change their names and pronouns at school.

The overall consensus at these leftist bastions of disinformation is that students have the “right” to keep this monumental and destructive decision from their parents. It is a fundamental argument that has been the crux of dissension: When do children have “rights” outside of their parents’ purview?

Most parents would argue that this level of freedom comes when their child has left the home and is no longer a dependent. Parents’ jobs are to raise their children in the way they should go and do their best to instill in their children the values and truths that give them a better chance at a well-lived life. Parents provide the guide rails that keep their children from going off the metaphorical cliff.

Activists who have a vested interest in their ideology permeating the next generation believe that there is no age limit. They delight in destroying the parental guide rails so long as the end result is that they have their way and have succeeded in persuading impressionable children in their lies. They do what they do because they care about themselves and being “right,” not because they care about the health and well-being of children.

Society only works because we agree to live together under a certain set of rules. When leftists come in and destroy all the rules, actively plant lies in the minds of our children, and then create an environment where those kids feel the need to lie or don’t want to be under the authority of their parents, this hamstrings parents’ ability to care for their child and ultimately cripples the ability for society to function — familial relationships being the foundation of society.

Teachers, as wonderful as some of them are, were not there when their students were born. They were not there through every sickness, growing pain, birthday, milestone, or life event. Most parents were there from the beginning, and they are forced to pick up the pieces when the fruits of an activist teacher’s grooming leave behind devastation, mental instability, and broken trust.
