Maryland (LifeSiteNews) — The largest school district in Maryland is promoting transgender lifestyles among its students, insisting that any students who “may feel uncomfortable” around transgender peers need counseling services to avoid discrimination. 

In Montgomery County Public School’s “Guidelines for Student Gender Identity,” various procedures are presented which are “efforts to create, foster, and promote equity, inclusion, and acceptance for all.”  

This official document was released in September 2021 and specifies that students who are not comfortable with school practices geared towards “inclusivity” should seek counseling to better understand and appreciate “gender identities.” 

“Some students may feel uncomfortable with a transgender student using the same sex-specific facility,” the document states.  

This discomfort is not a reason to deny access to the transgender student. School administrators and counseling staff members should work with students to address their discomfort to foster understanding of gender identity and to create a school culture that respects and values all students.

The document declares that students may access whichever “gender-specific facilities” they choose, regardless of biological sex. If transgender students experience any discomfort when using a “shared facility” such as a bathroom or locker room, they can “be provided with a safe and non-stigmatizing alternative arrangement such as a single bathroom or a separate changing schedule.”  

Any accommodations made are expected to be done so in a “manner that safeguards confidentiality.” Transgender students may only access “alternative arrangements” through their own requests. The school is not permitted to require them to use facilities which correspond to their biological sex. 

The document continues to detail school procedures which protect “rights” of transgender students to participate as any gender of which they “identify.” Dress codes insist that transgender and gender nonconforming students may dress however they choose, regardless of biological sex. It is also encouraged that individual schools “consider gender-neutral dress codes.” 

During overnight field trips, the school allows students to choose whether they will be in the girls or boys designated sleeping areas. In case of suspected discrimination or discomfort, a student can also be given a “safe and non-stigmatizing alternative arrangement.” Where a transgender student will sleep can only be discussed with parents “if the family is supportive of the student.” 

Counselling offered for ‘safety’ of ‘transgender’ students 

Although transgender students are offered numerous opportunities to opt-out of uncomfortable situations, students who are uneasy about having girls pretend to be boys, and vice versa, are ushered into counseling to ensure “safety” for the transgender community, with little to no consideration for the discomforts of the rest of the student body. 

Alongside the counseling recommendation, the “Guidelines for Student Gender Identity” indicates that student “transition plans” are better left unknown to the student’s parents, if the family is “unsupportive.” 

Montgomery County has previously attracted media attention for endorsing the indoctrination of gender ideology in public schools.

There are countless reasons to conclude modern sex-education is less about critical thinking and more about indoctrinating and sexualizing children at as young an age as possible.

Consider these 3 questions: 

  • Why are politicians around the world pushing radical transgender theories on children as young as 5? 
  • Why is the World Health Organization calling for 4 year-olds to be taught how to masturbate?
  • Why are children in schools being shown graphic images of sex and told anything goes so long as consent is established, if not to encourage our sons and daughters to become sexually active? 

A sane society would try to shield impressionable children from becoming sexualized, and encourage them not to watch pornography, take puberty blockers or mutilate their genitalia, but our schools increasingly promote these behaviors.

In reality, the media, most politicians, and many education chiefs are obliterating a parent's ability to protect their child's innocence and identity. 

We must realize: these elites want children to have THEIR values, not YOURS. SIGN THE PLEDGE!

The results of this explicit, inappropriate sex-saturated culture and education have been startling: there have never been more children claiming to be transgender, gay, lesbian and bisexual, nor have we ever seen such high levels of sexual assaults by minors.

Countless politicians, media personalities and education chiefs are too busy promoting woke trends to realize that sexualizing minors amounts to grooming, and has devastating consequences in many cases.

Children whose inhibitions are broken down risk addiction to pornography, teenage pregnancy, STDs, gender dysphoria, online shaming, and a whole host of other negative outcomes. 

Parents, not the government, must be in control of what their child is taught about sex.

Just listen to the type of materials public schools in the U.S. are promoting: 

That's why we are asking you to sign the Parents' Pledge that you will pull your children out of sex-education classes if your school chooses to sexualize your child.

The Parents' Pledge is our best chance of winning back our children's schools before they're entirely lost to radical sex-obsessed teachers' unions who are foisting these curricula on teachers.

Do you really want other adults deciding what your child is exposed to? Of course not.

Please share this brand new grassroots Parents' Pledge with like-minded parents and join a growing movement of mothers and fathers who are wise to the threat of their child being led into sexual activity.

In May, an elementary school in the district invited students to pay homage to LGBTQ ideology by holding rainbow flags and reciting LGBTQ values, as previously reported by LifeSiteNews. 

Montgomery County Public Schools is also pushing to have schools build “at least one gender-neutral restroom on each floor in high-traffic areas” and consider confidentiality while designing “gender-neutral” facilities in the future. 

Over the past year, school districts across the country have implemented similar “gender affirming” practices. New Jersey will be teaching second-graders “gender identity” as early as September. In Wisconsin, teachers have been told that parents must “earn” the right to be informed of their children’s “gender identities.” 

However, some parts of the country have resisted conformity, including Florida and Alabama
