School Keeps ‘Gender Change’ From Student’s Parents

A New York mother learned her daughter's middle school had concealed her gender counseling and use of a male name for months


The mother of a 12-year-old girl discovered that her child was receiving “gender counseling” secretly from her school.

Journalist Abigail Shrier shared a photo of a “Gender Support Plan” after a teacher eventually broke protocol and shared with the New York state mother.

In addition to the counseling, the girl went by a male name for most of her seventh-grade year while at school but not while she was with her family.

A note on the form, which is dated March 23, 2021, recorded the girl’s pronoun preference as they/them. A handwritten note says the student’s friend group knew her name and were supportive.  It also says that the student was “not ready to tell family” and that there was no plan at the time. According to the plan, the student wanted to direct all “outings” and wanted to be the one to inform her teachers.

The school’s website also links to the “Q Center” at ACR Health. The organization, designed for middle and high school age users, includes information on where hormone providers and gender surgeons are in their areas, as well as suggestions on where to obtain a breast binder.

Schools across the country have quietly adopted the practice of not informing parents when their child expresses interest or desire to use alternative pronouns or names.

In February of 2020, “a group of parents represented by Wisconsin Institute of Law and Liberty sued after the Madison Metropolitan School District refused to alter its policy of concealing childrens’ transgender behavior and related medical records from parents, no matter how young the child is,” reports The Federalist

At the center of the lawsuit was the district’s policy that stated: “School staff shall not disclose any information that may reveal a student’s gender identity to others, including parents or guardians and other school staff, unless legally required to do so or unless the student has authorized such disclosure.” Teacher and staff members were also instructed to discuss “contingency plans in the event that their privacy is compromised.”

Similar policies have made headlines in Maryland, New Jersey, Minnesota, Colorado, and California 

According to The Heritage Foundation, “a parent’s right to oversee the care, education, and control of their child is guaranteed by the 14th Amendment, and confirmed by the Supreme Court in 1923, in Meyer v. Nebraska, and as recently as 2000, in Troxel v. Granville. To raise and educate a child as parents see fit is — and always has been — on a par with the other fundamental, constitutionally guaranteed rights.”

Shrier had permission from the student’s mother to publicly share the SCSD form. She concluded her Twitter thread by saying, “Parents: Your kids need you.”

    Ridiculous. They aren’t informing parents because the first question asked is, “How did my child learn changing their pronoun?”

    The response is, “We had LGBT pride month and discussed this as part of our diversity and inclusion course work.”

    Of course, this curriculum is hidden and they will not disclose it due to licensing issues. They know what they are doing. It’s evil.

    The liberals aren’t having kids, so they are indoctrinating yours instead.

    Easy test for any girl that thinks they are a boy. 1 question pop quiz.

    Q.) It’s 11:00 AM and you’re hungry. The girl next to you drops an apple on the floor and goes to pick it up. What is the first thing that comes to your mind?

    A.)If you truly are a boy inside, the ONLY answer to this question is TITS.

    These communist party indoctrinationists won’t stop until they’re left with empty classrooms.

    Then we can demand the federal Dept of Ed be ended, and allllll that money they keep taking from us to prop up bad schools run by bad people can instead stay in our pocket to fund home or private schools as we see fit.

    Well said.

    Yup. When our girl was in elementary school, she went through nearly a daily “I wanna be this” phase. No one, and I mean no one who mattered, took her seriously. A Barbie doll? Ok hon’. A flying super heroine? Ok hon’. Etc, etc. No one told her no, or yes. We waited. Sure enough, she got out of that phase and decided she was a girl and that was fine.

    Thank the Lord.

    Well i suppose over half the country supports this kind of nanny state seeing how they’ve been voting for it for decades. What worries me the most is the questions this creates. My Daughter at the age of 13 with the help of a councilor decided she was gay. Now I as a Father who loves his daughter said hey what ever floats your boat. 2 years later guess what not gay. She wanted to fit in and support that group of people her own words . I wonder how many of these children are influenced by the internet into thinking they need to be this way. How many do it to stand on a soap box or because some dumb ass influencer they worship supports it. There is way too much influence from uneducated immoral douche bags on all these platforms and they get free reign. Meanwhile tweet something kinda mean and get banned forever. It’s like they want them to be stupid oh right they do because they’ll be easier to control.

    Public school is a fucking horror show these days.

    Parents, stop using public school as ‘free baby sitting’, step the fuck up, and home school your children. Yes, this will probably mean your precious little career will suffer, and you might not get to own that loaded SUV – well, tough fucking shit. Your children’s education and future are more important than that, and you KNOW that these public school system monsters are literally molesting your children’s minds!

    Simply fuckin insane… How and why do teachers have so much power? Telling kids to not accept their own biology and teaching them to hate themselves for who they are… 12 year olds are being brainwashed into hating themselves.

    Wow. Just wow. What happens when they allow the kid to go through a medial transition and the kid realizes it’s a mistake and commits suicide? Will the school administrators be charged with murder?

    Homeschool your kids. No parent who cares about their child’s wellbeing should trust the government in 2021 to make sure they grow to be healthy and well-balanced.
