Red Clay School District - RED ALERT
This is a 5-ALARM ALERT! Coming to a school near you!
School Board Members of the largest school district in Delaware, the Red Clay district in New Castle County, are set to vote Wednesday, December 1st on a policy that completely removes all distinctions between boys and girls, making all bathrooms, locker rooms, sports, overnight trips - all of it - gender neutral.
This policy completely erases the line between male and female private spaces.
In Loudoun County, Virginia, where a similar policy was adopted, a 'gender fluid' male student brutally assaulted TWO female students. He was transferred to another school in the county after the first assault in May, but had free access to the girls' restroom where he assaulted the second student.
This is what we can expect in Delaware if Red Clay sets the precedent for this kind of policy to be passed in school districts across the state.
This outrageous policy sets up parents as the enemy if they dare oppose it. It divides children and parents and fails to recognize the unique role parents have of being the best support for their child.
Please TAKE ACTION on this today; it'll take less than 5 minutes. We've made it super easy; just click the button below:
The Red Clay School Board must hear from people like you all throughout the state, by noon on December 1st. Their decision will affect the other school districts.
This policy is DANGEROUS. Here's why:
It is not "inclusive" -- it excludes the privacy and safety of its girls.
Gender identity is based solely on feeling. According to a Delaware law passed this year, gender identity doesn't even need to be "a consistent and uniform assertion," and sexual orientation is not limited to homosexuality, heterosexuality, and bisexuality -- it can mean literally anything.
This means that under this Red Clay proposed policy, a biological male can have access to female-only private spaces, simply on his word that he identifies as a female. This is the perfect environment for Loudoun County type sexual assaults to happen repeatedly.
This policy (Sections H & I) also puts girls at a significantly unfair disadvantage in sports, robbing them of opportunities to excel and compete fairly amongst their peers of the same gender.
It violates parental rights.
In Sections A, B & C, information regarding gender are treated as confidential. This means that the information is shared simply on a 'need to know basis.'
These policies set parents up as the enemy -- at best a 'non-ally' and 'unsupportive;' at worst discriminatory, or even abusive -- if they affirm their child’s biology, instead of embracing the confusion.
It impacts EVERY school district. Red Clay is the largest school district in Delaware. What is done there will likely set the precedent for the rest of the state.
We have until this Wednesday, December 1st, at 12 PM to MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD and protect our girls! Please take 5 minutes to ask the committee to vote NO on Policy 8005. They've gone too far!
