The educational system in the state of Delaware is offering up the soup of social chaos with new regulations aimed at the family under the pretense of preventing discrimination. It is not the anti-discrimination of your mother’s generation but one made of whole new cloth—without foundation—and as an affront to parental rights. Here is the proposed Rule.
Not only does the new regulation prohibit classic causes of discrimination of race, sex, national origin, ethnicity or religion, but it invents new classes: gender, sexual orientation, genetic information, gender identity or expression, among others, called “Protected Characteristics.”
The ‘Meddlesome Award’ for direct interference in the peace, safety, and well-being of the family goes to the state of Delaware. Here is how it works. In addition to the standard anti-discrimination classes, the new law gives the students, regardless of age, the right to choose a “preferred name” based on a Protected Characteristic; or to choose a “self-identified gender or race.”The mind-bender is that the school, according to the law, “may request permission from the parents” provided first, unless otherwise the school learns that the parent is not supportive of the student; and the school—NOT THE PARENT—takes into consideration the safety, health and well-being of the student in ”deciding whether to request permission from the parent.” Why suggest the school ask anything of the parent? Especially when the school official knows a conscientious parent will say ‘no.’
Who decides what is best for the safety, health and well-being of the child? Parent? NO. Teacher? YES. Counselor? YES. Yet, the U.S. Supreme Court says parental rights are fundamental rights. Then again, the Court also have said that about abortion.
This is the kind of social carving that a Marxist authors—or Satan itself.
