Proposed Education Regulation 225 Will Allow Delaware Students To "Self-Identify" Their Gender And Race Without Parent's Knowledge Or Consent
- Section 7.4 says students can self-identify their gender or race.
- Sections 7.3.1 – 7.4.1 uses the word “may,” meaning the school may disregard and bypass the parents altogether if the school (and who is that exactly?) perceives that the parent is “not supportive” (a non-ally) of the student in their new gender or race.
- Sections 5.1 and 5.2 are completely subjective and create all sorts of opportunities for perceived discrimination as well as the avoidance of teaching certain historical and scientific facts. In addition, they usher in gender identity curriculum, and if one pushes back on it, it will be deemed discriminatory. It's clear that any kind of affirmation of a child’s biological sex can be construed as discriminatory, even telling a student about a scholarship opportunity (section 10.5).
- Sections 18.104.22.168 - 6.4 allow for boys to play female sports. 6.4 opens up all contact sports, based on the definition of gender, which is however one identifies.
- Section 8.0 mentions student privacy like it's an afterthought.
- Sections 1.3 and 10.4 make this regulation a requirement.
